Butthurt by Carmacks recent critiquing of the PS3? It sure as hell seems like it judging by this bullshit score. Talk about gaming journalism at it worst. This is about as bad as it can get for a site looking for crediability. Is he looking for hits while taking a potshot at Carmack, it sure looks like it to me. Cry me a river Roboawesome.com. @Desert Turtle I don't need to read it, I can look at the score and tell this site is full of ****.
I take it you didn't read the review.
Brosy, go sit in the corner and slap your ding dong around for a bit while you play the 55/100 rated RAGE game on your platform of choice.
Brosy, reviewers also have to rate the performance of the game on their platform of choice. I guess what most affected the score was the fact that the ps3 was a shoddy port.
I would have to disagree with you Brosy - I found RAGE to be quite bland and I have to agree with the author - bargain bin material. One need look no further than the meta score - it's not exactly a runaway success. You sound like an iD software fanboy to me. Doom was a revolution in gaming, yes, and Doom 3 I thought was great despite the flashlight issue but that doesn't have to mean everything Carmack does is gold. Look at Lucas Arts - what went wrong there?
Um, the metacritic score is 80+ for this game. If you are passing on games that get an average of 80+ then boy, you are missing out on some great games.
I agree with you completely MOD. I thought Rage was very poorly done and boring as hell. I had a really hard time keeping focused. I am glad I rented it
I agree with the review. Try actually reading it before shooting off your mouth. I'd personally give it a 6/10, though. Not impressed with this title at ALL, and I was waiting for it ever since it was announced. Big disappointment.
with the hype and all, I feel sorry for the people that bought the game and ended up hating it in the end. If you liked the game, then good for you.
This looks like a damage control piece from what john said about the ps3, how pathetic. Deal with it multiplatform at times look stunning on Xbox 360. Some people so hurt :'( lol More funny thing is RAGE is higher metacritic then Resistance 3 and same as KZ3 at 84% so much of a flop in PS3 fanboys vision. Oh that means they are also saying KZ3 and Resistance 3 are a terrible failures too good. So PS3 users agree that KZ3 is a massive failure and overhyped from the things they saying about RAGE. John a genuis, u N4G fanboys are nobodies
Troll is obvious @ brosy :/
It really deserves a 55 score. I have it on pc and even the higer resolution graphics (marginal) don't save this game from being a lifeless post-apocalyptic snooze fest. It's like they took doom, took all of character out of the combat, stuck in some cirque de solei mutants and added in totally laughable rpg lite elements and smushed it all into a large empty wasteland where only the background has high res textures and everything in front of you looks like Doom 3 on low settings...Don't agree I have steam pictures from the game Take a look http://steamcommunity.com/p... I'm so happy I only payed 27 bucks for this. I knew since launch it wasn't worth 60 bucks but IDK if it's even worth 27. Crysis just went up on psn and XBLA and it's only 20 bucks and still is a better game then RAGE. It Arguably looks better too.
Wow that does look like shit... thanks... Glad I am torrenting it now lol. 78.6% done :-)
""Enslaved: Odyssey to the West is post-apocalyptic, yet there’s almost no brown in the entire game.""
I wasn't impressed with rage. It felt pretty standard stuff to be honest. Maybe a 65 or 70. Maybe. Maybe.
Yeah and the worse part is this thing took 8GB out of my harddrive lol
took 22Gb of mine, And took 7 and a half hours to beat......
@limewax 7 hours? You are full of ****!
@limewax Lolwut? Let me guess, you rushed through it as fast as you could, ignoring all side quests and upgrades to be made, and asked yourself. Why the game was so short. I wonder why. Lmao. I'm eleven hours in on nightmare and I'm doing any all side quests within an area before continuing through the story. Try it sometime, you'll actually get a better experience if you take your time. I can only imagine how you handle RPGs bro.
I thougt it looked like a crappy game myself.
I didn't buy it because it looked mediocre to me. Carmack isn't a very good dev in my opinion. His games always have great visuals but they lack in the gameplay department. Just my opinion. XperiaRay
So much hate. I enjoyed it. Took me 22hrs on nightmare difficulty and doing all side jobs. Wasn't amazing but was very good. Just my opinion. (racing was fun)
You echo my sentiments. I really enjoyed Blue Line station. I had my trusty hardened sentry bots with me to help out. They are a bit suicidal though.
I had a great time with it. Once I had my dynamite bolts, pop rockets, & spider sentry bots, I was loving it. Definitely not perfect, but a very fun diversion while I wait for Skyrim.
Sweet will pick this up, been hearing good things the only game ill get from bethesda no dragons woo hoo.
Halfassed review from a halfassed site. The game is fun and looks better than most of the games that have came out this year. Too many many crybabies got overhyped!
Agreed! So far its the best looking title till date. Console wise that is.
It's a bit funny at times. I don't which version you played but the Dead City for me was a bit of a mess in places. During the fight with the first grenadier mutant it seemed that none of the textures loaded in properly. On PS3 btw. The skybox and rocks are second to none and the animations of the bandits are fantastic. Something I really liked as well was the music and sound in general. Especially the Cockney Wasted clan.
Rage reminds me of Borderlands but with a different style,Borderlands was 10 times as fun.I'm glad I rented Rage because it was a bland boring game & the graphics were definitely bland.I deleted my game data immediately after 1 day & got my 8 gigs back!
Rage is amazing
Rage is awesome im about 20 hrs in and just getting to the good missions in subwaytown. Well worth the 60 i paid (even got a $20 gift card with it). Its one of the best looking ps3 titles ive ever seen and im hooked on this game hardcore, keep switching off between it and dark souls. A 55/100 is just plain bitterness. Even with some popin its a damn good game.
I don't really get all the hate for Rage, yea there were pop ins and stuff and it's a standard go here do that game - but man do ID do it well. This reviewer gave it 55 out of 100 and thought it was bland. Seriously? Some people gave it 6 or 7 out of 10. Wow. This game deserves more than that. I beat Rage in 15 hours or so, but the world ID made is amazing, so is the AI and guns etc. Personally I had no issues on my I7 pc and found the game extreemly enjoyable and was immersed. Give ID credit, way to go guys and gals. In my books 9 out of 10. Bring on Rage 2 This game deserves nothing below an 8.5. Well worth the 60 bucks I paid, I just don't really see why everyone seems to be crying. To me Rage was amazing.
