The great controls and useful weapon upgrades help make Rage’s shooting parts a lot of fun, but the storyline fails to create any real tension and the game’s characters, friendly and hostile, never do or say anything memorable. As a result, Rage starts to drag toward the second half after most of the mechanics and upgrades are introduced because the fictional world isn’t very interesting.

For a game so packed with variety and ambition, it's hard to shake the underlying feeling that RAGE actually brings very little to the table. The combat is fantastic, but then so was it in DOOM. There's nothing offensively wrong with RAGE, but sadly it just never comes close to achieving greatness.

It's easily one of the best-looking titles available for the Xbox 360, and while PS3 owners already have Killzone 3 as their graphical heavyweight, this is infinitely more enjoyable. Rage is a technical powerhouse, and if you can overlook the bits that don't quite work, you'll find one of the most exciting shooters we've had in years.

Over the first couple of hours, you may find yourself coming to terms with the style of game Rage actually is, rather than the type of game you may have expected it to be based on some of its peripheral design elements. A deep and sprawling experience it's not, but as a focused, directed shooter with a few other things to do between the shooting, it hits the right notes. And damn does it look good doing it.

Rage’s story and overworld design feel dated, but its heart-pounding gunplay is a nice change of pace in a market filled with “follow me” and pop-and-fire shooters. While light RPG elements are present, this is mainly a game for players who love challenging combat experiences.

Yes, Rage is something we have seen before, but it still offers an incredibly complete package. Beyond its intense, action-packed FPS side, the game has a terrific RPG underbelly and features truly enjoyable buggy racing. Fans of these genres, and fans of just about any sub-genre in gaming, will have little to complain about in Rage.

If you’re as tired as I am of playing sequel after sequel, and miss the exciting pioneering days of the early generation when new franchises were just arriving, RAGE is probably for you. With excellent design, pacing, presentation, and a unique combination of mechanics from multiple genres, it is absolutely worth your attention. I do hope that future entries in this series (and it’s clearly designed to be a series) expand further on the vehicle, over-world, and multiplayer aspects. RAGE is an auspicious start to a great new franchise and worthy of id Software’s incredible history.

El siniestro, pero al mismo tiempo luminoso, futuro de id Software toma forma con el sobresaliente Rage. La elite de shooters que se han ido lanzando en este año 2011 tiene un nuevo miembro, y es que lo nuevo de los creadores de Quake o Doom es un lanzamiento fantástico que nos va a atrapar desde el primer momento con su adictivo planteamiento, su poderoso apartado jugable y su fenomenal acabado gráfico.

Aussi incroyable que cela puisse paraître, c'est sur l'aspect technique que la dernière production d'id Software pèche. Si le nouveau moteur de John Carmack sait afficher de superbes paysages, il peine à convaincre dès qu'on s'approche un peu trop près des textures, ou qu'on teste les limites (vite atteintes) du moteur physique. Les six années de développement se font sentir.

Het is jammer dat de game soms nog verschillende textures moet laden als wij ons snel omdraaien en dat het avontuur in de singleplayer niet zolang duurt als gehoopt. Maar het totaalpakket aan pure pret, maakt wat ons betreft alles goed. Het wordt een belachelijk druk najaar op het gebied van games en id Software trapt deze periode perfect af met een ijzersterke game die je nog lang zal bijblijven!

Känslan efter elva timmar med ensamkampanjen, kryddat med multiplayer och en del omspel, är att Rage saknar den där extra touchen som toppspelen har. Det finns inga tråkiga sekvenser att tala om och tempovariationen är riktigt bra. Jag är dessutom förtjust i hur banornas design är linjär och tät, men med en ständig illusion av öppenhet.
