This is one of the greatest games ive played the graphics are the best ive seen and the gameplay is very entertaining. it may be a little slow at first but id say once you get the second vehicle it gets awesome the missions get more challenging. The local multiplayer was a plus for me great missions for coop and races

Rage is definitely worth the 6 year wait. The graphics are really good and the gameplay is also well thought out. For the people that are giving the game bad reviews because they say it's a copy of borderlands, let me explain something to you. Id software has been developing this game for 6 years. Now if you do the math, that means they've been working on the game to make it as good as possible since 2005. Borderlands was released in 2009. So really if you think about it, borderlands copied rage. Borderlands was cartoony, repetitive after awhile, and had way too many guns that did the same thing. Don't get me wrong, borderlands is an okay game, but it pales in comparison to Rage. Rage's graphics feel realistic at times to the point where you feel like you're actually in the game yourself and the weapons are unique because you're able to upgrade them as you progress in the game. The driving parts also brings me back to my twisted metal days. The controls are responsive. You tap the e-brake and you stop instantly. It feels like i'm dodging bullets like the matrix when i'm strafing back and forth. Id software helped make first person shooters what they are today. There wouldn't be a borderlands if it wasn't for id software. Why would they need to copy an average game like that? Rage doesn't take some things from fallout, like the end of the world theme and stuff like that. But rage has objectives and points you in the right direction, where instead fallout kind of throws you in the cold with almost nothing to start with and says good luck. Only bad thing i can say about rage so far is that it takes up a great deal of harddrive space if you install it but it still has loading time. If i'm going to take up almost 20gb of space, there shouldn't be any loading time. Other than that, i'm enjoying the game.

It took 6 years to make this game, and it uses the new id Tech 5 engine, designed by the same company that makes this game. Not only is it amazing looking, it’s extremely fun to play too.
There is so much content for this game that the Xbox 360 version comes packaged with 3 discs. The textures and color qualities are absolutely amazing looking; I like how the clouds have a biblical art style to them (very large and fluffy), and how the details in the environment look crisp from a distance. This game definitely pushes the system’s capabilities to its limits, to where textures load in slowly at times, but that doesn’t mean the game sucks, lol. The controls are solid and have a nice fluid feel to them. Also the ai is incredible. You’ll definitely be mesmerized by the way the characters in the game interact with the environment around them, and they’ll give you a challenge too.
There are still some great games coming out this year, but this game may very well be my best of 2011. I give this game a 10 because no matter the amount of any flaws one might find, there’s so much good in this game that it trumps any bad.
It’s a fps/racing game that mixes survival horror, thriller, suspense, action, and adventure, and best of all it is fun to play.
