I know a lot of people think Rage just sucked. I didn’t – I loved every second of Rage. Except for the ending. That sucked. I agree with the masses there. There was barely an ending at all and I’m one of those people who can’t consider a game well and truly finished without a gigantic epic boss fight.
Apart from the ending, however, the game was great from start to finish. The gunplay was great, the driving was palatable for what it was and I’m really tempted to say this was the best looking game I’ve ever played. And that’s on top of it running at an astoundingly-consistant 60fps with nary a drop I that can remember in my 12-or-so hour runthrough.
It would probably be only right to mention that I’m not one of the many that ran into technical roadblocks with the title. My PC copy arrived roughly 2 weeks after release, as is the norm for ozgameshop, and so I ended up sidestepping all the post release issues and walked into an entirely playable game 2 patches and one beta driver from Nvidia later. That’s so long as you consider crazy mouse sensitivity in menus ‘entirely playable’…
Look, maybe I’d be a bit more pissed if the thing had been unplayable out of the box. And maybe I’ll still get my change to rage about that ‘$60 beta tester’ crap when Skyrim comes out this Friday. In any case I found Rage a rare gem that spoke to every one of my peculiar tastes in gaming and am entirely ready to drop $$ on whatever DLC id decides to release. They’ve certainly promised it’s coming.
