Why Rage And Final Fantasy XIII Were Bad Games

It's a little old but here's a quick opinion piece via about why such games as Rage, Final Fantasy XIII and even Crysis 2 in the minds of some, are bad games. Spoiler alert: They're tech demos.

"Is bad the right word to use? Perhaps. It’s definitely the easiest in a pinch, especially when you’re finding difficulty placing such games. It certainly isn’t too harsh of a criticism while remaining on the side of judgement that you’d like to place the games in question, wherein you are in fact saying the following: They’re shit. "

totally agree. They were like a unwanted baby, what a mistake

Well that's a bit dark.

Comments like yours are unwanted and uncalled for.

That's certainly a creepy way to put it.

But, anyway, Rage was horribly mundane and low on content. Even its hyped to oblivion graphics were only so impressive. In fact, a lot of the environment looked like crap. And they seem to have forgotten that shooter fans like the multiplayer to have shooting in it.

Hey! Surprise! It wasn't/isn't another CoD clone! And it sure isn't targeting the ones focused on multiplayer as it has a great and long campaign. Rage is an awesome game. I just got it, I must admit I held of so long. But it's totally underrated. And I don't even think its a "great" looking game. It looks OK, but we've seen better. But I have a blast playing it.

hope you are not speaking from experience. If you were trying to be funny you crashed and burned hard.

I like the Unreal tournament series, and they're all tech demos.

I loved Rage (obviously apart from the terrible ending), for me its a perfect example why you should not always listen to reviews or other gamers, sometimes you just gotta try games for yourself.

SilentNegotiator2242d ago

.....It got like, 80 on Metacritic. What are you talking about?

Highlife2242d ago

Rage was one of the more boring games that I have played in some time.

InTheLab2242d ago

I agree with Rage, but have no opinion of FF13 as I've never played it.

Rage was a boring game. So boring, it basically stole the plot of another boring game, and tried to mimic the gameplay of the very good Borderlands. I've tried multiple times to complete Rage but I just can't seem to give a s***. There's just too much stupid in Rage. For example...Wingsticks usually kills most mobs instantly, but shooting them in the head with steel or feltrite bullets does nothing.

The game also feels old. id did a good job with melee character's A.I., but anyone with a gun made me feel like I was playing Doom again. And while the game is open ended (sort of), most of that open ended gameplay comes in the form of car combat, with the rest of the gameplay taking place in a series of dungeons that are nothing more than a bunch of corridors...

There's more reasons why I thought Rage was terrible but the game is just too boring to talk about anymore.

The author should talk about Crysis 2 next round and why they're bothering to make another..

Sarcasm2242d ago

I agree about Rage. After the initial "Oooh Megatextures!" it was all boring and repetitive.

aliengmr2241d ago

Here's a first, I agree on every point, even Crysis 2.

Not sure how people can love Rage, there's not much there to begin with. And "Mega-Texure"? What over-hyped garbage that was. Maybe it was impressive on the consoles, but it was garbage on PC. Distant textures were great, but up close it was a mess.

Anyway, bubble for you.

rage wasn't that bad, just not the masterpiece I expected.
