I picked Rage up not too long ago and quite enjoy it. It's not really an open world/RPG game, but does have some of those elements. If your not trying to box it in for a certain type of game then it's pretty good. Texture pop-ins are pretty obvious though.

i totally enjoyed the game, but yeah the texture pop ins on PC really need be sorted if they do future versions, loved the NPC characters styles in the towns

Emilio_Estevez2327d ago

The pop-ins are bad, but that in no way hindered me enjoying the game. It's fun, has variety, cool weapons and ammo, lots of upgrades and lots of loot.

It's a pretty good game, I got it from Best Buy new for only $5, and it was one of the best $5 I've ever spent.

Solid game. 8/10

The only real problem with the game was the last level and especially the worst ending in a video game in a long while.

Good. I really enjoyed Rage. Not Id's best work, but still a heck of a lot of fun. It should be made more open ended next time though.

When I played the PS3 demo I was really surprised at how smooth it was as well as it's graphics.
Really enjoyed playing it.

Must be the demo because the full game is anything but smooth.

They have a lot of work to do if they want to appeal to the PC crowd in a more positive light.

paddystan2327d ago

Agreed. I used most of the week after it launched trying to decrease the texture pop-in. In my opinion, a game shpuld be ready to be played on right when it has been released.

Eyesoftheraven2327d ago

It was very disapointing. Oh well, lesson learned.


The game had potential...

it really could have done with a bit more time (even though it had been in developement for ages).

The ending really really let it down, but the gameplay was fun.

Next gen hardware is just what it needs.

It was on PC and it was still bad graphically next gen Hardware has nothing to do it
