Should the PC version of RAGE have been delayed?

Console reviews for RAGE have been fairly positive so far, averaging at 83 on Metacritic. The PC version, however, is a different story. Plenty of users are complaining that the game suffers from a variety of bugs and errors.

Destructoid’s own Jim Sterling had this to say: “I tried the game on PC last night and was fairly horrified by what I saw. I’m currently playing around to see if I can get better, but I’ll have full impressions later today, whatever happens. I’m absolutely shocked the game came out in the state it did.”

In short: YES.

It's a mess.

CrzyFooL2240d ago

It's fine on Nvidia cards but AMD users are more or less fucked at the moment.

Robotronfiend2240d ago

Actually, it is not fine on Nvidia cards. A quick browse on their blog and forums confirms this. They have a beta driver available right now and are still working to improve the PC issues as we speak.

Delayed? after 7 year?
are you kidding me?
LOL

meetajhu2240d ago

Yes it should have been delayed for ATi users.

Wow I'm kind of. Surprised that it's a mess.I was thinking holy shit this game looks good on the ps3 and could only imagine how sick this would look like on a PC.Hopefully they fix this problem.I have my PC coming soon and was going to pick it up thinking how sweet this was going to be.Maybe by the time I get my PC it will be good to go.fingers crossed.

it should never been released in this state in a first place

Rod2240d ago

Have you played it on PC? I'm intrigued by what's going wrong.

Rod2240d ago

I've been playing it on the Xbox without any problems. I thought ID specialised in PC development?

Robotronfiend2240d ago

XboX360 was the lead platform, and it was ported to PS3 and PC. I'm playing on PS3 and I still get a lot of texture pop when i'm in the outdoor areas on foot. Its less than what PC folks are experiencing, but still annoying.

I thought it was odd that I saw no texture pop during vehicle races, just outdoors and on foot.

joydestroy2240d ago

wut? this doesn't make sense...
no games are ported to PC because that's where they're built first.

Ducky2240d ago (Edited 2240d ago )

Here's a few issues I noticed:
- Textures taking time to 'load'
- Poor performance
- No real graphics settings (you're only allowed to pick AntiAliasing and Resolution)
- A pointless 'Press Enter' screen
- There is no way to close the game (AFAIK). Quitting the game brings you to the main menu
- No FOV settings
- No real control settings (can't toggle ADS, etc)

The performance and visual hitches are mostly due to poor drivers. ATI cards usually don't like openGL for some reason.
Still, it is baffling how iD can't even get something as fundamental as FOV right.

Orpheus2240d ago

Hell yeah!!! But considering they took 7 years to release a game wthout any special feature for the pc , ignoring the bugs ... is kind of shameful for them !!!!

But all the complaints and all the grudges will be washed away by the new found love of the new console fans of ID.

SweatyFlorida2240d ago

Well they DID make RAGE with consoles in mind, not PC. Why do PC users always think they should get special treatment or something?? Also I thought PC got the mod kit or whatever?

Orpheus2240d ago

Well pc users did expect keeping in mind Id has always been making games with the pc in mind and later giving the console development process to other shitty developers. Suddenly why are all the console developers so in love with Id and Crytek???

SweatyFlorida2240d ago

@Orpheus yah I know but that was the problem, why expect when they CLEARLY said this was gonna maximize consoles instead of PC? They've already admitted they had made a mistake giving consoles all the attention and instead will make future titles (like Doom 4) with PC in mind 1st.

And I wouldn't exactly say console devs are "in love" with ID and Crytek. Maybe Micro is with Crytek but haven't heard much love for ID.

Ranich2240d ago

They should've just delayed all the versions together.
