Summary: Great start out of the box, then the game stalls out. You can see possiblities everywhere as to places to explore but can't. Game really needs more freedom to roam. I personaly don't like time trails to get to next Lv. of play either.
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.
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.
Astonishgly BORING and unimaginative. What were they thinking
27 January 2012
Summary: Maybe all the good ideas have already been done, I don't know. Or maybe it simply easier to copy ideas that came before, but Rage is so unbelievably derivative and boring, it's embarrasing. Like many others here, I'm a veteran gamer, and will try almost anything.
Summary: Another game optimized for console and oh yeah, let the new guy port it for the pc. Thanks John. It also requires steam. Steam is not a big problem to playing but I don't want a company having access to my computer and monitering what and when I play and who knows what else.
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.
Summary: Rage is a chore to get working; which is strange from a company which has often been praised for the scalability of its games. In any event, I succeeded in getting the game to run smoothly on a system that is at the lower end of what is needed to play it.
Summary: I won't write another long review as there are plenty great ones here already. Suffice it to say that it is indeed way over-rated and far to expensive. I will be a great buy when it is $4.95 a year or two from now on Steam. I don't mind the Steam activation personally.
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).
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.
