OG - Rage Review

Rage Review -It’s been four long years since Rage has been in development, the graphics looked amazing and continued to improve throughout the years. They improved so much, in fact, I almost thought it was going to become a PC exclusive. After all the delays ID took to release the game, I started to lose interest thinking the game was doomed to vaporware. Luckily, the game re-surfaced back on the map and ID proved that their long awaited baby was destined for birth. It should come as no surprise that people know ID as pure innovation as they are the fathers of FPS games. Rage feels like ID formula: it has the amazing shooting mechanics, it is graphically one of the best looking games I’ve ever seen, but unlike today’s standards ID is stuck in 1993. (PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 6.5/10

honest review

Because it's a low score?

I've played the game for 4-5 hours and in my opinion, compared to overrated FPS games like Crysis 2 and COD, this game is a 9 or 10 in my book. That would be my honest opinion.

id and Carmack don't deserve this. Play the game yourself and you'll se how amazing it is to play, and how much craftsmanship they've put into it.

'My honest opinion'

Welcome to the world of reviews, it's all just opinion.

The review itself is inconsistent, praising the exemplary shooting mechanics in the game and then raising the point that its supposedly a 'lacklustre' shooter like other games.

Its not. The craftsmanship is there for all to see. It doesn't pretend to be something it isn't. It knows its a traditional shooter that has its DNA intertwined with id's successful formula.

You're right. Rage deserves better than this.

@CynicalVision:
"Welcome to the world of reviews, it's all just opinion."

Serious question: why they don' t call it "opinion" but "review"?

Am I the only one that think opinion=/=review?
I' m almost certain those words are not exactly sinonimous.

In my honest opinion its a 3/10 game, but definitely don't saying that I am a center of the world and everyone should have same opinion...id you let me down : (

3/10. You've obviously never played a really bad game before.

Quoted from article:
"Rage created mega textures to add the best visuals you will ever see on a console and PC."

There's a limit on how far an opinion can go, to say such bold assessments for the PC that even Digital Foundry admits isn't too far from it's console brethren. Then there's also BF3 to compare which is pretty unanimous that it holds the title of best graphics (PC wise).

Added to that, the review is quite fragmented. In the end, I only managed to get the author's points after reading the entire score/summary below.

Yes, agreed but is BF3 out yet. Even though we know what the game will ultimately end up looking like it is not out yet so as it stands there is nothing better than rage out for the pc yet.

I only recently heard about this game, did not look much into it, but liked what I'd seen..
So, I purchased it, and have put about 8 hours into it.. and, yup, I thoroughly enjoy it.
I personally like the game, and it could be improved, yes [but what game can't?]. It's fun.

People always talk about 'Game A' is the killer for 'Game B,' nawh.. Hype is a real killer.
If you don't fall for the hype that some people place on games, you'll enjoy it much more.

I like the cut of your jib. Have a bubble for a truthful comment.
