I can't believe it took 6 years to make it's MAX 12-15 hours long..very disappointing. That being said lets begin with the Graphics.. which are GREAT and one of the few reasons why i played this game to the end :(. I have to compare the Graphics to Borderlands because they are very similar just much better if you like how Borderlands looked you will like the look of this game. The Gameplay is a FPS with little RPG elements hidden within. Now the let's get to the Story...which is very Forgettable and very short, the missions are either go there pick up item come back, go there kill everything come back or both very boring and on top of that you go back to the same places at least 2 times pretty sad for a 2 disk game(3rd disk MP). There are a few Boss battles(NO END BOSS?? what the..) with very little challenge to them, I was playing on the hardest difficulty and had ZERO Game Overs but did have to use the Defibrillator a few times which is used when you die to get back up( you can only use it once before it has to recharge, but there is an upgrade which allows for 2 charges). The guns are not that great and best thing they have going for them is the Ammo, from mind control bolts(CrossBow) to pop-rocket Buckshot(Shotgun) to heating seeking missiles(missile launcher) its all about the ammo( the WINGSTICKS ROCK too). The Racing/Driving in this game is sub par with only 4 vehicles to choose from, 3 you can race with and only a few different types of races (Trial,minigun,Rocket,Rally) and the different kinds of Quick items you can buy for you vehicle is very Twisted Metal inspired. The engineering part of the game is very good even though it is limited. I would of loved to see many more creations, instead there is maybe 2 or 3 that you actually make regularly(Sentry Bot, Sentry Gun) and maybe 10 in total. I didnt play MP.. In my opinion if it wasn't so short and had more content it would be a very good game but how everything stands it is a game you should RENT!!!!
This game starts out very very very slow. It is a yawner during the first few hours and you have to push yourself to continue. After a while this game does get more interesting. The battles start to pick up and you get to use some pretty cool weapons with some really cool ammo!
This game could have been a must have. They would have sold a lot of copies but they messed up in a lot of areas. Missions are pretty dump and uninteresting. Boss battles are easy to forget. Way too repetitive. Too much racing!!! I wouldn't usually complain about this but the racing is too easy and just gets old fast.
Game is too short and the ending just might be the dumbest of any game I've ever played. I've played a lot of games ;)
The best thing to say about RAGE is, graphics are the best of any 360 game to date. Sound is pretty good. Weapons are cool. Controls work well. Game runs smooth.
All in all this game is worth a rent if you are the kind of person that can work through the first few hours of boring game play.
If you buy this game you will regret it. There just isn't any re play value here.
