Summary: When Rage first came out at a ridiculously high price I didn't buy it because I read all the terrible reviews. Only after I saw it on Amazon for a bargain bin price did I finally get it-and Im glad that I waited. Rage is completely uninspired. Everything is on a small scale. Comparing it to Borderlands is like trying to compare our solar system to the entire universe. The entire Rage game has less content than a single Borderlands map.
racing game instead fo first shooter adventure game

Summary: At first I thought this was going to be like Fallout, but it soon turned into a racing game where you have to complete races to progress in the game. I didn't buy this game to race dune buggies around. I was very disappointed. If they wanted to have a racing game then they should have sold it as a racing video game.
Summary: I am enjoying this game a lot--now that I have a NEW GeForce 560Ti graphics card. My Radeon 5770 would not run the game, despite trying all the graphics driver updates, downdates, and other program tweaks I could find. Should I REALLY have to uninstall my gaming keyboard software to make this game run?? Locking up for 5 seconds every 2 seconds does NOT a great game make. I was going to update my graphics card anyway, and it runs fine on the GeForce card.
Summary: RAGE is the worst video game purchase I've made in a while. I pre-ordered this game despite straight up disgust with id's previous title, Doom 3, so I take full credit for the sheer lack of foresight that led me to waste $40 on this title (I had $20 amazon VG credit). However, that doesn't excuse the awfulness in this AAA title. First, the praise. RAGE is technically impressive in many ways.
Summary: Lots of hype around this game, my favorite type- first person, driving, post-apocalyptic game. Unfortunately it doesn't deliver. Textures are great from afar but far from great close up. Gameplay is generally quite easy-I had to switch from 'normal' to 'hard' settings in the first hour of play. The driving physics are lame and it seems impossible to destroy your vehicle. The vehicles aren't really better than one another (Why am I racing to win a new vehicle?
Summary: Id's John Carmack and crew finally sold out to it's PC roots & totally hosed up development for us computer owners making this one of the worst console ports ever seen by a blockbuster company... Bad texture, small areas that try to trick you into thinking it's some large outdoor wasteland. Even DUke Nukem Forever was a better game than this turned out to be.

Summary: Well... It looks like this is another game that I fell for the hype on and is NOTHING like advertised. This is a SINGLE PLAYER review. This is a Fun, Short, game... Worth a rental on a console but not to be bought on a PC. I beat the game in about 8 hours, so I played it all the way through. This is even after, and I use the term loosely "Exploring" and doing "Side missions.
Summary: Rage looked good, a unique blend of Borderlands and Fallout rolled into a
single game, with some interesting gameplay options and other features and
minigames. Sadly, this is its only redeeming point. Sure, the graphics are amazing, but
when you realize that a full 2/3rds of this 21GB game are textures, and how
short it really is, it makes you wonder if its really worth it all.
Conclusion: I can't understand all the rave reviews about this game I really can't. Its not as good as fallout, graphically or game play wise The combat is rubbish The driving element is childish The AI is rubbish. The graphic detail is rubbish It was to easy It was over before it had begun.
