During a period which is spawning sequel after sequel it’s refreshing to see a new contender thrown into the gaming ring. RAGE doesn’t quite capture the iconic status of some of id’s previous efforts. What it does do however, is give players a fantastically designed world that combines satisfying gunplay, great visuals and a good mix of different gameplay elements.
From a smooth, flowing frame rate and beautifully detailed environments, to excellent animations and interesting level design, id have once again struck a formula with their new engine that powers one of the best looking games currently available. Because of that, it’s a shame that a world so detailed and vibrant in its visual detail is filled with characters and story that are at times, hollow and forgettable.
