id Software has described post-apocalyptic shooter Rage as a “summer blockbuster action flick”.
Isn't every shooter these days?
it sure looks generic...like a michael bay induced post apocalyptic rail shooter from what I have watched...Id could have done some great things but it looks like it was mostly hype with this game but who knows I haven't played all of it so i can't be totally sure but from what I have seen it looks like i would not really be enjoying it.
That's their excuse for a zero-inmersive and empty shell of a FPS. Bravo!
And what's your excuse for expecting some deep story and immersion from an ID software shooter :p ? Great action is what they do best
stop hype ID, please.
lol yeah stop hype and start fixing bugs :p
I played the game and thought it lacked character. And, well, in my opinion, the post apocalyptic setting has been done so many times this generations that iD would have done well to release the game 3 years ago. People acted as if it were the second coming of christ within the FPS genre, yet I see no innovation or anything note worthy at all apart from the detailed environment. Everything else is bog standard FPS tripe.
I had high hopes for this game, and truly believed it would offer a new experience. I think Ill pass after reading the reviews.
Wow, I really hope it's not as bad as you say. I was hoping for a Stalker like experience with this but it looks like only Stalker 2 will provide me with a different fps experience. I'm also getting disheartened to buy the pc version with all the bugs I've been hearing about.
If this is a blockbuster flick then every WWE movie is Titanic quality.
Lol well said
No, it actually has all the qualities of a Blockbuster movie. As I wrote in my review; "Rage wonderfully showcases id Software’s extensive history of great character design, graphical prowess and top-tier First Person Shooter combat, but sadly fails to uphold their same standard of innovation and creativity. Over-all, its disappointing package, but only when compared to id’s legacy. Rage is still a solid shooter, and is best described as akin to a summer blockbuster film - looks the part and is a great diversion, but is all style and no substance. This will quickly be forgotten." ~Bryce
What bothers me more of this game is that there isn' t a properly coop.
Wish I hadn't pre-loaded this on Steam now. Whoo, Friday... *sigh* Looks like Dark Souls will have to be acquired just in case.
You can still cancel if it is not released in your region. I preordered Red Orchestra 2 and got beta access with it, played the beta for a week, hated it..... cancelled it....... refund!
Sweet, thanks for the info dude.
Rage was beautiful. It looked better than almost any game I ever played, but then I started shooting and looting, and it fell short in interactivity. It was gorgeous though, man it was so freaking amazing looking. They obviously need better writers which is weird, didn't Zenimax aquire them?

So many whiners here. Just because the game didn't get many 9 out of 10s, people don't want to get it. Prtobably the same people that will get MW3 which is the same rehashed rubbish from lastyear and the year before.
nobody mentioned review scores here...i'm speaking mainly on what I have seen from gameplay videos on youtube or sites like GT and whatnot...plus the released a punch in the dick for 60 bucks for many pc owners.
What's with all these developers making out that the single player is a "blockbuster", "cinematic" or "movie like" for example. It's like they saw how successful Uncharted 2 became and what the single player there was known for so they think "Oh if we make out that you get the same feel in our single player like Uncharted 2, people are more likely to buy our game" Rage, Gears of War 3, MW3 to name a few where the developers have said this. I think Uncharted 2 has started something in the games industry without ND knowing.
