Very Good

A very good tech demo.

Rage is a game that I heard about years ago and so without knowing much about it I rented it. To my surprise I found it to be quite enjoyable and fun.

Pros: The gun-play is fantastic, the guns feel powerful and the enemies put up a nice challenge. The combat is the highlight of the game and it should be fun for almost anyone. The driving parts were a little disappointing but they are still fun. Graphically the game is superb among the best I've seen this year.

Con: The atmosphere and world seem a little dull, the towns feel somewhat small and the characters are not lively enough for my taste but they get the job done. The story could have been better.

Overall: The developers of the game seem to have focused more on the game itself rather than the world they tried to reveal but that's not a bad thing. With the engine now developed it should give them more time to work on the structure of the story and characters if they decide to make a sequel. I would recommend this game to gamers who enjoy great game play and well developed combat.

Fun shooter, but nothing more.

Pros:
+ Fun, Satisfying gameplay.
+ Great Graphics
+ Driving is fun

Cons:
-Story really isn't compelling, same with the characters
-Worst handling of multiple discs i've seen this gen
-Frequent texture loading even when installed
-Bad checkpoint placement which leads to a lot of frustration
- Frequent Backtracking
- Missions are mostly errands/fetch quests, which become repetitive.

It's not Fallout and it's not Deus Ex. RAGE is just a fun shooter that ultimately has no real depth.

This is a time where your gamefly account really comes in handy, as this game really isn't worth 60 bucks. Especially with the onslaught of AAA releases coming up.

everything is really good in this game, graphics are awsome giving the xbox is super weak, only thing that bugs me is how horrible the guns sounds, thats it.
