Apparently long development times and over hyping do not make a great game. (i.e. Duke Nukem) This is another such example using this tactic for promotion and sales. It's basically Fallout-Lite with Mad Max car battles set in yet another bland post-apocalyptic world. A world that might look nicer if it wasn't for severe texture loading issues that are probably the most annoying aspect of the game. The story is incredibly dull and the missions are all generic objectives we've seen countless times before. The characters are generic and unrelatable. The shooting game play is sort of fun and different in terms of a seemingly more intelligent and realistic AI, but the games boring pace and story put me to sleep and I couldn't justify slogging through another mediocre at best, over hyped title. ID should have stayed true to their FPS roots and not included Bethesda's forced and worn out RPG elements. 5/10
i rounded up to 9 but i think it deserves an 8.5-8.7 because the ending was kind of a let down and makes the game seem incomplete. i was expecting a knock down, drag out boss battle with some huge mutant or robot from the conversations i was overhearing while walkin around town in the game. u dont even see the main villain. i understand that they want to set it up for the next game but this isnt the way to do it and i'd really hate to wait 5 yrs for it to come out.
i really liked the game other than that. the game looks awesome and animation is smooth. the gameplay is great, some enemies come at u pretty fast and it will take some getting used to. constructed items are pretty cool like the sentry bot and turret, some arent like the rc car, i think black ops did it better. the thing was slow, delicate and hard to maneuver which was shocking compared to the great handling of your vehicles.
almost everyone compares it to borderlands and i gotta admit they are similar but different. there isn't a whole lot of wandering around killing wild animals to level up. its not an rpg like borderlands. borderlands is humorous and silly at times, rage is more serious. to me its better and if it had campaign co-op it would beat borderlands hands down. but borderlands had more replayability to me.
i liked the story, but its not the greatest, but with action like this, who really cares?
