excellent game if you lower you're expectations

This game from the makers of doom had very high expectations from gamers and sadly did live up to the hype for many reasons for example a lot of had technical issues but thankfully most of those problems have been fixed. The game comes with it's own utility to set the optimal settings for your system. The game did not recommend the highest settings, so the engine must have some feature improvements typical of the older id software titles, designed to run for the latest video cards.

Gameplay-wise Rage is like how other reviewers have stated: somewhat repetitive. But there is a progression of weapons and inventory and equipment, like your cars, so that gives me something to look forward to in upcoming missions.

The combat gameplay was quick-paced, the enemy AI get tougher with their dodging maneuvers that makes the game a plus, and side missions add hours and hours of extra play time. Sure the game isn't as "open world" as people hoped for, but that wasn't id Software's entire focus.

In terms of graphics the game is amazing and look fantastic if you have a high end PC

The other problem people had with game is the ending - The story doesnt come to closure and it ends on a cliffhanger and rage 2 has sadly been cancelled!

It's still an excellent game if you lower you're expectations

Not Bad

Its got some great graphics and seems to be heavily based on the fallout series. It has a nice spread of mini-games like racing and side quests. The combat is alway interesting with mutants and bandits alkl out to try and kill you.

Driving in the game can be crazy at times with armoured buggys with rocket lauchers on the back as you blast away hostile bandit vehicles

However

The second half of the game can be a bit boring being not as well made as the first it feels like same old same old

Still a fun game and you should buy
