The launch of RAGE on PC hasn't exactly gone smoothly for id Software, and now buyers are expressing their discontent via poor user reviews on the popular review aggregator site, Metacritic.
Its gonna go for 10usd on Steam in 2-3months time, that will be the right time to pick it up, if at all.
lol... It looks bad on pc... too many low res textures... >__>
Yeah man, even AFTER the new drivers from AMD/Nvidia AND a patch from the devs themselves it so messed up that some textures look like pictures almost and then right next to it is a texture so poor it looks like a texture from 2000. I really regret buying it.
@pirosthe4th i don't know who disagrees with you but i played it on my pc and i turn it back to the shop after 2 hours Rage without any doubt is loaded with low res textures and pop in this guy (carmack) dose not know shit and he only talk talk talk i'm holding the money of that game for BF3 on Pc
Honestly... the game was deeply compromised by consoles... just like crysis 2... expect a high res patch in a few months. Honestly, I'd buy it later once it's cheaper
I got it on PC. It's a very good game, but it's plagued with technical issues. On the PC It's a technical mess.
I disagree. The game isn't very good even despite the technical issues. It only took me 16 hours to do everything in the entire game. Thats totall bullshit, cuz I was expecting an amazingly deep 20 hour campaign for id and got this half assed game
huh, have you played any id games? all id games are short, all the dooms and quakes can be finished in a short amount of time, Rage is their longest game by far (I dunno, maybe that RPG on the DS is long?)
lol longest game... Final Fantasy X ... was 120 hrs into it... and had one sidequest to go plus last dungeon fight :P Well 16hs for an FPS isn't bad though.
@ PirosThe4th You didn't read my post did you.
The game runs fine on my PC i dunno why but it does and it looks amazing such beautiful graphics not so much up close but other than that for me its great.
At times it is the best looking game I have ever played, but some of the up close textures are appalling. The patch added more graphics options, but I don't see any difference tbh.
USER REVIEWS are worthless. Here is examples: "Game looks gay so why would I play it?" 0/10 "This Shizznetzz teh awesummm SAAAUCCEE" 10/10 "Nice graphics but it's a puzzle game" 1/10 "Game is boring" 0/10 "Bestest GAYYYMMEEE EVAA!!" 10/10 "I'll get around to buying it later, I am getting COD instead so" 5/10 This is why I do not ever take Users reviews into account. Most sites, they are cool to read since it's other gamers opinions, but meta user reviews are worthless.
Gotta love the CoD excuse lol
So are we all gonna agree that MegaTextures are a huge fail...at least for the moment. Not only that but we should all agree that iD hasn't been relevant for about 15 years.
yeah Rage is so ugly on PC it even hurts my eyes :( http://cloud.steampowered.c... http://cloud.steampowered.c... http://cloud.steampowered.c... http://cloud.steampowered.c... http://cloud.steampowered.c... http://cloud.steampowered.c...
You can still see the blurry textures even from your screenshots. I"m playing the game right now on highest settings with the latest patch and drivers and the game still looks 'good' at best. There are plenty of much better looking multiplat games out there for PC.
Do you really need to defend Rage and your pc in every article.
Honestly but for a pc on max settings that looks pretty crap. Are you running on max setting? @tubers I agree looks like i am waiting this one out for a while. It's no problem gonna play batman and Uncharted 3 first.
I tried the another version of the game *cough*. The only probably have is the texture pop up that have become significantly less obstructive since the first AMD patch and first Rage patch. 60 FPS w/o any stutters on my 5870 rig while looking great (not the best but at least buttery smooth). I say it's a good technical feat. IMO one of the best visual to performance ratio in PC games (next to Crysis 2). Now, if only they kink out the other issues like flicker flags, etc. After a few more patches and price drops, it will be one of the better recommendations.. NOT worth the pre-order or current MSRP IMO.
Your rig, if the IP is optimized; say like Hard Reset, for example, should run at 60 FPS. Acting like that's a huge accomplishment on PC is like a parent gloating over a 10 year old child riding a bicycle w/o training wheels.
had it, sold it... not impressed.
Rage is Borderlands without the Cel-shading ha ha : p
It's almost the only game today that still uses pre-baked shadows.
