Mike at Gaming Irresponsibly gives his reasons as to why id Software's Rage is looking to be that much more of a promising release than DICE's Battlefield 3. Which do you think will win? Frostbite 2, or id Tech 5?
Rage does seem cool, but better than BF3?
They're too different to compare. One's a post-apocalyptic FPS and the other is a modern military shooter.
Yeah that's true. It's almost similar to something like fallout versus mass effect lol
agreed. odd comparison
Say wut? Oh! Free advertising. I see what you did there.
Not to mention one is focused on single-player and the other on multiplayer. I have no doubt Rage will feature a longer and more fully fleshed out campaign, while it's the multiplayer that will be center stage in Battlefield 3.
They're both graphical beasts on pc's. It's very nice to see the pc finally getting some love now too.
I completely agree. It's not fair to compare these two, it just seems like bait for a fanboy war. I'm looking forward to both of these games, and I don't think either will provide an experience I'd call acutely "better" than the other's. They're just two cool looking games by two pedigree devs. Comparisons like these can only cause damage, there's no need.
"Why stupid f*ing articles are always better than decent ones." - The number of clicks they get.
And also Rage doesn't have multiplayer like BF3... (It does have multiplayer but you can only be in cars (buggies or w.e you call them) You cant have opponent v opponent online (on foot) multiplayer in Rage is only vehicles
As long as they are two games, as long they are two shooters, they will always be comparable. But the value of each of them will indeed depend a lot on the taste and profile of the gamer.
I'm sure RAGE will be better in some ways, while BF3 beats it in other ways....I'm getting both btw.
^^I'm actually more excited for Rage because theres SOOOO much mystery still surrounding it. Particularly the multiplayer aspect.
um..first of all, the dude in the pic looks like one of the bad dudes from heavenly sword.. second of all, RAGE is like a different game and not a military shooter... >_> right? and where does MW3 come in with this comparison? Should we have another article saying stuff like "New super mario paintball shooter, why it will be better than battlefield 3" .....
"Which do you think will win? Frostbite 2, or id Tech 5?" I think they are literally saying "looks"
id Tech 5 on consoles, perhaps Frostbite 2 on PC.
Different thematic elements don't necessarily make the comparison impossible.
Rage needs to stop hitting delays too
Gonna have to bank on BF3. Gambled on Brink, that was disappointing
Brink gave no initial indication of being a bad game, though. In fact, everyone thought it was going to be a solid title. On the other hand, people are already complaining about BF3. That doesn't mean it's going to be bad, but on a minimal level it does a lot to frame a particular mindset.
People are complaining that BF3 doesn't look as good on PS3 as on PC... and those people are probably not even PS3 owners.
I thought both Brink and Duke Nukem would be epic. Can't win em all.
rage is by id though...
what games have they made
@keith-ps3 ooohhh mmmyyyy ggaaawwwdd... who did you think made Doom 3?
id? They like only frickin gave the world the FPS? Kids these days don't know their history.
im glad im thrifty with my wallet. you guys buy some horrible games.
First off I am buying both. I'm really not sure which one will be better. And they can be compared, Mass Effect is better than Call of Duty. Two different games, one is clearly better. But I will say that Rage had the best commercial. TIGER JUMP!
For the record, I think Rage will include enter/exit animations for its vehicles, lol.
Too bad there are a very limited amount of vehicles in which to enter.
Yeah, because that TOTALLY ruined Borderlands n'stuff, AMIRITE?
You missed the point. I am not saying anything is ruined/destroyed/crap/theworst ever!!! Why is it that a thing can't be a thing without being the best or worst thing ever? The guy above me tried to insinuate that Rage had some sort of advantage over BF3 because of vehicle animations. I responded with what I feel is an advantage for BF3 in response. I'm sure people will love both games.
I have absolutely no intention of getting rage. But BF3 on the other hand, it is my noº1 shooter this year
I'm buying both, and I've gotta say that I see Battlefield 3 lasting a whole lot longer than Rage. I'm pretty sure that Rage will look way better, but the replay value can only last so long for a game that's central focus is singleplayer. (Yeah, I know Rage has a few multiplayer elements, most of which are based on racing.) Metal Gear Solid (PS1) and Batman: Arkham Asylum are two of my favorite games. When was the last time I played them? I don't know, I've been too busy logging more hours into Battlefield: Bad Company 2... @Biggest Nope, I've seen all the BF3 footage that's available to the public, that includes the PS3 footage. Personally, I think that Rage will look much better in the final build.
Rage? Look better? Have you been under a rock since the reveal of BF3?
They're so different though. If you're just talking about engine specifications, then okay, debate away.
No destruction, not better.
RAGE doesn't suit that. Battlefield is ALL about the destruction.
rage intrest me alot more than bf3 i played games like bf3 before neva played no rage kinda shiz
Rage looks awsome! But I will be putting more hours into bf3!
yeah the story might be better but the multiplayer hell no
Morons write articles this days.... 2 different games and they try to compare em
They obviously post comments too.
Single Player - Yes, RAGE will most likely be better then BF3. Multiplayer - I doubt it.
BF3's multiplayer is really the selling feature. I don't know 2 many people that have said "Man, I cannot wait to get into that campaign mode for BF3" lol
Not gonna compare just gonna enjoy thats the point ain't it when you pay money for the game?.
Watched RAGE gameplay a while back, and it's color palette is completely different from Battlefield 3, but it did look pretty nice. The environments look pretty captivating and I can't help but imagine it all as a big mess of concept artwork. Thing about RAGE multiplayer is that it will be utterly different than BF3, so I don't really care about whether it looks better. I want to see it play better. My money goes to BF3 before RAGE.
It is ironic that while I'm looking forward to both and for entirely different reasons, I feel more apprehension towards rage. I believe that this is because I am hoping it may b more similar to fallout or bioshock, while all I'm hoping for concerning b3 is that it is better than MW or cod. But, i guess that's just why many companies do not take the risks. And i guess we can't criticize b3 simply because it is attempting to b the best military shooter to date. I'm not even sure what rage is supposed to b or trying to b. Chances are though that ill b pleased w both.
Meh, I don't care to compare. I mean I really can't compare them. Regardless I'm picking up both, they both look f'in amazing!!!!!
Every game I've predicted flop (haze, brink, dnf, etc.) has been true. I have the same feeling about Rage so the same fate may very well be near.
I'm actually more interested in Rage, that being said I plan to get both because I expect both to be fantastic and for completely different reasons.
Who wouldn't buy both? I know I am. Can't wait for either of them :D
its a good argument, i can imagine Rage being better, although graphics are a key component of a top tier game they don't necessarily make or break the game i.e. Nintendo games, Halo, Fallout, Oblivion, Infamous etc. BF3 is being hyped way too much, even though it'll loose out to COD sales wise and have a very close aggregate review scores. but than again i see Skyrim and Uncharted 3, both completely different games eclipsing all these shooters.
I will buy both.
RAGE = Bethesda = 10,000,000 bugs in it. Not saying it'll be bad, but I wouldnt say it'll be better than Battlefield 3 just because its Bethesda.
Bethesda only publishes it. They don't make the game.
I give you Brink and Hunted: The Demons Forge, both of which got average reviews.
I give you - id software, who are actually making the game and who have a history of making great games. Rage has got nothing to do with Brink and Hunted, why bother bringing those games up?
RAGE isn't being made by Bethesda, it's being made by id Software, who literally invented the FPS with Wolfenstein, and who's pedigree includes such classics as Doom and Quake.
Rage has better graphics
I'll get both and see how I feel; I just hope BF3 lives up to its steroid-induced hype and Rage indeed has a good story and development to back it up. I don't expect in-depth dev in BF3 because the hype reminds me of CoD's mimicry of Madden releases, but if you think about it in THAT mindset, then I suppose BF3 will be amazing...because of things that go 'splodey and you don't necessarily need to have a reason why. Long story short: different flavors for different moods/appetites, but I'd prefer a straight forward menu of what I'm going to eat instead of one in a different language because "it's exotic (but it's okay, we have pictures!)".
Stay off Battlefield BC2!! Al you COD sissies are now jumping ship cause you caught a glimpse of Battlefield 3. You're coming over, camping, and sniping and not playing correctly. Butt Out!!! It's a team game. Your going to ruin Battlefield 3. Bandwagoners!
lol I hadn't noticed it until you mentioned it... but yeah actually there has been an influx of low rank people running around in BC2 lately, who have obviously only just got the game.... and been a lot of camping snipers as well...... more than usual I mean.... there has always been a fair few wookies getting their camp on! Watch this, Awesome vid: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Rage- GOTY was my prediction. But after play testing Deus Ex, I may have to change my vote. However, BF3/COD modern warfare type games are way too over saturated.
We've obviously had a lot of post apocalyptic fps's and modern military shooters, but we've had too much of the latter i have to admit.
This is just stupid
Its funny how people compare two games that arent even released yet so there is no way of knowing how good they actually are until you have a hands on experience for a decent ampunt of time.
I found this to be a bit funny... "it’s [Battlefield] simply a AAA title with high quality graphics" As if a AAA title with great graphics is easy to come by.
The two games are pretty much nothing alike so how can you really compare them except for graphics and any real gamer can tell you that graphics don't make the game.
