This game had a lot of potential but didn't tap what it could've been a real open world game like far cry instead it stuck to cheesy roads that have arcade like dune buggy battles off of a psone game and cheesy steampunk style characters and basically the same enemies over and over again. Is this game worth a rent yes. A buy and a game that will be in your top 100 games you love? Not even close!!!
One Thing you can sat about Rage is its graphical quality is astounding. There is, unfortunately, a great deal of texture pop in, but when loaded the detail is freaking amazing. Everything else falls in the game falls into one of three categories: Driving, shooting and story telling. Driving here is, fairly fun. I'm not personally a fan of such mechanic, but it works. Shooting is fairly easily the best part of the game. Switching between guns and their ammo types and using supplies in mid battle are easy and give the fights a degree of violent fun intensity. The story telling ruins the whole thing. The pacing is just awful. It goes nowhere fast and when stuff does start to happen it doesn't happen again for another eternity. half of what you do would have been better placed in sides quests rather than the under developed story about a man who awakens in a post apocalyptic world after one hundred years of cryo sleep and sides with a rebel cause to fight an tyranical regime. Speaking of underdeveloped, none of the characters have any personality. They give you quests or direction, and that's about it. Cardboard cutouts. Its fun to play until you realize nothing in the world gives you reason to give two damns.
