most overrated game of 2011
generic fps and thats all

jony_dols2545d ago

Yes, because all generic FPSs have RPG elements such as weapon crafting & character upgrade systems, epic boss battles & refined driving & racing segments.

Yup sounds likes a quintessential generic FPS.

I'm sorry guys, I kind of agree with him. RAGE had massive hype.

It's a good game, but I definitely wouldn't give it top scores. And how can it be "underrated"? Tons of websites gave near perfect score.

I just didn't feel connected to the character.

1. You survive.
2. Someone rescues you.
3. The person who rescues you says it was a lot of trouble to rescue you, so take this gun and go over to those bandits and kill all of them.

Ohhh and btw, there's only 1 of you and 30 of them.

4. You did it, thank you, but now we have more trouble. I want you to go do something else for me.

I mean, where's my choices? And even without the choices, where's my attitude? Where's the feeling behind my character?

I kind of like the driving more than the shooting and I'm about 5 hours in. The shooting just has AI stay behind cover and even if you shoot the part of their body that's sticking out with a sniper rifle or something from far away it won't hit them half the time which is annoying. The rest of the shooting is great though and I'm liking the game as a whole.

WRONG;.. its a good game.....

RIP steve jobs...u will be missed.

CrimsonEngage2545d ago

id are allowed to make generic FPS games. They invented the FPS in the first place. The game is great. The only reason it's not as big as it should be is due to a lack of marketing.

I'm having a blast with it. The racing is surprisingly addicting.

Sounds like this guy is reviewing getting Skyrim early from Bethesda more than reviewing RAGE

Nick2120042545d ago

Huh? I didn't even mention Skyrim in the review.

Jio2545d ago

I want this game but I can't decide. What's the replay value on this, what's left to do after you beat the game?

IWentBrokeForGaming2545d ago

My nitpick with this game (I have it on PS3) is the texture loading and lack of physics. You can look at the ceiling, then down at the floor again real quick and notice it already needs to reload the floor textures you were just looking at. Although quickly executed, just the fact I see it... urks me a lil bit!

Also when I shoot skulls/cowheads etc. that are hanging from ropes, it'd be nice just to see them bust or at least swing. Or when meleeing objects like chairs or whatever... that they would break or go flying! just another little thing that urks me!

The game does look gorgeous though (amazing backdrops) and I think the AI is some of thee best if not thee best in a console game this gen for sure!
