-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.
I was excited when I first saw this game at E3 2-3 years ago and could not wait to get my hands on it. Did it live up to my expectations? NO!
Everybody has been saying that this is just another borderlands clone but I would say it's borderlands/Fallout. The quest system is like borderlands and the picking up, creating items is like fallout. Normally that would be a good thing IMO but you are very limited on the amount of guns that you can use and most of the items you pick up are mainly just to sell. Yes you pick up some items that let you create turrets, lock grinders or RC Cars that blow up but that's it. My main complaint with this game is the boring story. The game starts off really slow but does pick up at the end but I almost stopped playing it because I was sooooo bored.
ID was so close to making a really good new IP but they failed in so many ways. This game is worth a rent but I could not tell anybody to buy this game.
