If you can get over how flip-floppy Rage can be, you can find an intriguing shooter underneath.
I was really interested in this game when it was first announced, but now not so much.
I'd still like to give it a try. Doom wasn't perfect and I had crazy fun with it.
Rage does seem kinda interesting...but with so many other things coming out soon, I don't really have the time/money for something that requires me to *try* and enjoy it.
Exactly. I have plenty of games to buy that will force fun on me.
It's weird...I never really hear anyone talking about multiplayer with Rage. Just about the campaign like this article. This "inconsistency" is very strange, though. It's like the developers weren't quite committed to going one way or the other with certain design decisions.
It's even stranger that there were so many problems with this game when it launched considering it took a long time to develop it. They're even blaming the drivers for the video cards when other developers aren't having too much problems with them. I'm getting turned off on buying the game with all the problems I've been hearing about.
But most developers use Direct X not OpenGL like Rage does.
Rage is really fun, if it didn't how so much damn texture issues it would be a great game.
Rage always lacked a real hook for me. Shoot things? Looks pretty? Okay. And...?
Classic id then? I feel you on this. With our gamer now n' days, we need more then to shoot and good looks. Still awesome game to play though
once u get this baby going its an underrated masterpiece. Never enjoyed killing in an fps as much as i do here. Say what you want, but COD, BF3 are not fun imo, This, on the other hand, i smile every time i use this crossbow or the shotty.
I bought it, I'm playing it, I'm having fun. It's a step out of the norm for id software and I think they pulled it off nicely. So far my only complaint is that Nightmare mode could stand to be harder, then again I am only in hour into the game so it could just be easing me into the world of Rage. Nightmare mode in Doom in the :( so I have high expectations for this mode in Rage. But all in all I find it fun and am really liking the game. 360 version(installed all 3 discs) btw.
I love it on ps3. Minus the texture popin....it's fantastic! I get more out of the atmosphere and sound work than I ever did in borderlands or halo. Gears might be on par with detail and the little things. For many they see rage as a failed borderlands....yet, it isn't a rpg. Once you figure that out you'll like it much more.
I beat the game last night, it was pretty good. Some of the missions were brilliant (some of the best times I've EVER had in a game), some were not. The game mechanics are solid, fluid, and easy to pick up. I would recommend the game, but I think a sequel needs to be bigger and more challenging. I would also love to see more RPG-like depth, there's a touch of it already and expanding on that would be great. Overall, the game is ALMOST a masterpiece. There were downsides, but I didn't have any graphical issues, so I can't comment on that. The biggest thing was that there was no economy management, your money was near infinite and you could always have anything you wanted. Crafting was great, but the inventory and crafting screens became very cluttered later on and it just became more trouble than it was worth. You also had so many options available that there are plenty I never even tried and usually the cute engineering weapons were underpowered. Stealth was a bit of a joke, some enemies later on couldn't even be stealth killed. tl;dr - Game does a lot right and a bit wrong. It's good and it should be played if not purchased right now.
i played about an hour of rage and thought it was really fun, so far, in that short time frame. the texture pop in issue is really off putting for me though. they dont stay loaded so im constantly getting detracted from the game. after that 1 hour i couldn't focus anymore and had to stop playing. ive got dark souls to fill the time until it gets patched at least. im really looking forward to getting back into it when they work out the minor technical issues regarding the textures.
Is it worth the full price or should I wait? I want to get a gamers opinion, because I seriously don't have the money to blow on a crappy game, especially when so many great ones are just around the corner.
It's decent fun, but I wouldn't have spent $60 on it. Wait until it's about $30 or so.
Thanks, you just saved me $30.
