RAGE is a groundbreaking first-person shooter set in the not-too-distant future after an asteroid impacts Earth, leaving a ravaged world behind. You emerge into this vast wasteland to discover humanity working to rebuild itself against such forces as bandit gangs, mutants, and the Authority – an oppressive government regime that has a special interest in you in particular. Featuring intense first-person shooter action, breakneck vehicle combat, an expansive world to explore and jaw-dropping graphics powered by id’s revolutionary id Tech® 5 technology, RAGE promises an experience like no other.
Fearing a planet-wide extinction from a massive asteroid headed towards Earth, world leaders are faced with the inexorable task of ensuring human survival. Left with few alternatives, life-sustaining pods filled with select people are buried deep beneath the earth’s surface. You are one of the chosen members of these modern day arks and abruptly enter the RAGE universe after surfacing alone. Leaving you to your own devices to stay alive in a world filled with those who prefer you dead, RAGE combines powerful storytelling with heart-pounding action.
Visceral 1st-person gunplay and exploration – Take on bandit gangs and hordes of mutants using an arsenal of exotic weapons and special items, such as Wingsticks, personal turrets, sentry bots, and remote-controlled bomb cars.

RAGE is definitely one of the most underrated games I've ever seen! this game is really beautiful and is really amazing in gameplay, It might be old but still compared to many modern games still has something to say , the game runs so smooth and the story is compelling too, a sad thing in the game is you can't change FOV, which in my opinion i really a must have option for every single FPS game, a 60 FOV for my 1080p monitor is not really satisfying and after a while you may feel you are getting some kind of dizziness and even headache! but putting that aside, the game artistic design and gameplay really catches my eyes and since it follows and Open World portion you have freedom to do whatever you want and go where ever you like but i suggest you be more careful about it since you might die so easily in some part by bandits! and there's also a Coop option for some missions which make them highly replayable. all in all, RAGE is one of the best creations of id Software and you will really enjoy the game!
So I must say I was very surprised by the game. At first I thought it was nothing special. Because nowhere was talked about and it came as an indie. But with the considerable memory size something had to come out of it. Of course you could have expected from the beginning that a game from the name Bethesda will be brilliant. For me, the first 3 hours of gameplay were made quite nice by the graphics. It looks like Borderlands with improved graphics. Nevertheless Borderlands remain unbeatens by the big Open World Maps and the more unusual gameplay. In Rage, things are more serious. The psychos here are mutants which consume human flesh and do not give a push of themselves. I think it's a pity that you are rather tied to the main missions. You get besides the main mission only around the 1-2 side ones and a few standing orders which can be delivered again and again. But on the whole the game is definitely worth the money and is also very playable for every Borderland fan.
Played through this, hidden gem of a game, in 2017 and found out that I've been missing out on a great game! The atmosphere and clothing on characters are done amazingly good for what kind of world I'd have tried to portray, from idle people to enemies and friends out in the wastes and settlements. For what little world space there is it is done very good, looks believable and is beautifully destroyed. Weapons are interesting and fun, they are fitting of the universe they exist in, mostly. The action is fun and the enemies, especially mutants, move crazy good and are not easy targets at times. Crafting and character build is shallow but fun enough to use time on it, maybe for my own satisfaction of completion. You discover fast that characters are a bit shallow, don't expect much variety in the verbal department from them. They will say a few lines and that's that, maybe repeat them a couple of times. And there aren't much side-quests deserving mentioning but there are a few throughout the game. Racing part of the game is fun for about one hour then it just becomes; I have to do this to progress easier... all the way through the game I kept thinking that the developers had much more in mind when they created this game, a vaster universe, characters, settlements, missions, it's just the feeling I'm left with. Because the world they've created is pure awesome and deserving of so much more.. content! but they cut it short and that that is so frustrating, it could have been so much more! :D Graphics are beginning to show a bit wear and tear compared to newer titles but is holding up for being 2011 graphics and with a little tweaking inside a cfg file, you can get this game to look even better. Plays just fine on a ultra-wide screen. It's absolutely a good game, for what it is a bit short (18 hours thorough playthrough) but action filled post-apocalypse FPS with a little hint of crafting and a shallow character build/upgrades + an unexpectedly sudden end...
Good combination of FPS with vehicle driving, we are traversing the wasteland with our car improving it along the way. The amount of customization is pretty impressive, you can improve engine, armor, suspension, afterburner, we can also add to our minigun car, or self-guided missiles. RAGE is a great FPS, sandbox elements allow us to create items such as guard towers, bandages, self-guided bombs and much more! Unfortunately, if someone is already familiar with Borderlands, may be disappointed in this game because it is not so open world, the game is partly linear. Nevertheless for cheap, it's a decent game.
"Welcome to the wasteland son. It's pretty ugly out here. I need you to do something for me. We've lost communications with the scouts at the northern outpost. We need medical supplies from them but fear something has happened. Can you please go and check out what's happened to them" And so - after stocking up on supplies and ammunition - you leave the safe haven of the settler settlement and head north towards adventure ...for about 10 seconds. Are you kidding me old man? The Northern outpost is about 200 yards away. You could find out what's happened to the scouts with a good pair of binoculars. Oh btw they're dead and you will have to fight 38 mutants, but that's the fun bit. RAGE is a game that's all about scale. It has everything a good open world game has. Wastelands, Cities (well, 2 of them anyway), crafting, side-quests, races, a smash-TV style battle arena, stunt jumps, delivery jobs, gambling mini-games, a really awesome trading card game, and more. And it fits all of this into a match box. This is the smallest "open world" you'll ever see. I swear that everything is within a minute distance of everything else. It's both ridiculous and amazing. For the rest, it's pretty fun, the game doesn't take itself too seriously - I think there was a story but it's not that important - the combat plays a bit like borderlands minus the loot but with a nice variety of weapons, ammo, and sentrybots, and all in all it's definitely worth a playthrough. The game ends like it started: abruptly, not far from the start, and without getting boring.
