GR - "There are many reasons to look forward to RAGE, but ten reasons sum up the game's ability to bulldoze its competition in the FPS genre"
lets see why it will be a great game: 1. 60 fps 2. Id software 3. John Carmack Day one buy for me.
right just like rage was the next graphics king, funny how those articles vanished, same with brink people said it was the next graphics king and not even close
4. Post apocalyptic setting (not quite worn out yet) 5. arcady combat racing 6. open-hub and dungeon style design.
This is what Borderlands should have looked like. Day one here too! Have a bubble.
I agree, but you think it will match up against the likes of Borderlands in terms of cooperative gameplay?
Co-op wise probably not but not much has been said about the co-op in Rage yet so i will hold off on the judgment until then. :3
It's not what borderlands should be! Borderlands was a amazing game and all though similar it took a different style to rage and the visuals suit that style!
True, but Borderlands was originally not going to look the way it did. It was going to look like Rage. The cell shaded art style turned me away from Borderlands. Now Rage will make up for that. :D
I didn't know that it had a teen rating considering the massive violence shown in the trailers, looks like this game has entered my top 5 for this year
Well, to be honest, it doesn't really look that amazing to me :/
im gonna be honest and say it looks like shit lol
i cant wait for this game, i pre ordered months ago. If i had to choose this or mw3 i would pick rage in a heartbeat.
"RAGE is powered by the most powerful game engine in existence—id Tech 5" WTF? Has the editor been stuck on Mars and NOT seen the Frostbite 2.0 Engine, Arma 3 Real Virtuality Engine, STALKER 2 X-Ray Engine 2.0, Metro 2033 4A Engine. Sure Rage is gorgeous but I don't agree that it's the most powerful. #6 Artificial Intelligence...I'm sorry but every video i have seen of RAGE has shown to have pretty stupid A.I. blindly running towards gunfire. I have yet to see enemies use cover, flank, or smoke the player out of cover. Rage looks awesome but some of the editors comments were a little over the top.
I have notice that big AI flaw too,but i really hope is related to the mutants behaviour, i hope others enemies get a different AI behaviour. If you played borderland at the beginning the enemy AI has very flaw an just end up shooting without any strategy but later in the game wend fighting Atlas Corp.,and especial in DLC Secret Armory of General Knoxx, the AI was much better.
I dont know, it something new, but i think its mroe of a preparation for Doom 4.
Still, I don't think it's going to bulldoze Skyrim or MW3. Or BF3. Because it's not a game that's going to keep you playing longer than the career and side-missions. It may be revisited over time, but it's not inducing the replay value either BF3 or MW3 will offer--or the replay value of Skyrim, for that matter. Looking back at TESIV, I've put 86 hours into my first playthrough, a year later another 50, and in preparation for Skyrim I've racked up about 60 hours on another playthrough quite recently, not even getting to the mods--this will probably be my longest playthrough yet. This doesn't count Fallout 3, which I have enumerated a shit-ton of time on as well. This doesn't count Fallout New Vegas, either. What I do know is that RaGE will not bulldoze the competition, and I certainly won't spend 100+ hours playing it without a leveling system. One thing is for sure though: it will DEFINITELY keep me entertained until November, when UC3, Resistance 3, Skyrim, MW3 and BF3 arrive.
Not huge on shooters but I am really looking forward to this.
