I enjoyed the first map alot. the second was rushed which of course dtracts from the quality but it's still a decent game.
It's s shame the console thing happened, it would have been alot better. It's still better than most shooters released these days.
Despite releasing in 2011, Rage looks dramatically superior graphically to Fallout 4, a game released a full four years later.
The game looks and runs great, plays well, and has satisfying classic shooter combat with good weapon/item/ammo variety. The story is barely there, but the characters and animations are charming. Sure it's derivative and pretty small for an "open world" game, but it felt handcrafted with love to me. I just think people give id way too much credit and had far too high of expectations for it considering all of their previous games were just corridor shooters. Got it for 10 bucks, liked the combat enough to google a Gamefaqs thread where somebody gave away an unused code for the DLC.
>When the textures worked they were pretty
It's really weird when you think about it: Here we have this game designed as a FIRST PERSON Shooter with an engine optimized to look nice from a distance but terrible up close. I wonder if that's the reason the tacked on driving bits were stretched out to be 80% of the game.
I can't remember why I stopped playing it, I enjoyed it quite a lot. It's a good shooter, cool exploration, Driving/Racing can be a blast...hmmm..guys why do we hate on it all the time again?
The funny thing is, it's not even a joke - it's completely accurate. Rage looks dramatically superior to Fallout 4 in everything sans lighting. Pic related is max settings FO4, the textures just look blurry and awful. I'm just absolutely amazed that FO4 sold so well, considering it genuinely looks worse than a 2011 game despite Bethesda having twice the budget of Witcher 3. Absolutely disgraceful.
God dammit, that response was meant for the dude who said "that's the power of megatextures." Ah well, pic related, another gorgeous Rage screenshot.
They used Snoop Dogg in the game promotion!
