Rage was announced four years ago, resulting in an explosion of hype. It looked markedly different to anything id Software had done before, and looked absolutely stunning to boot. Fast-forward to present day and the game is out, and everyone is playing it. Does it live up to the hype?
What Rage does accomplish is giving us gamers the briefest of glimpses of the future, visually at least. The town of Wellspring in particular is truly stunning; and as mentioned previously, the character models are incredibly detailed. In addition to the overall great visuals, the satisfying gameplay make Rage a game worth playing ... once."
