Rage 2 isn’t the biggest game in the world. Nor is it the prettiest, or the most polished. Once you’ve explored its tame open world enough to open up your combat options however, it doesn’t really matter. In the heat of battle, the only thing you’ll be experiencing while playing Rage 2 is sheer joy. And it’s good enough to make all the boring bits in between feel worthwhile. It’s not perfect, but it shows that id’s brilliant brand of combat can be enhanced and implanted into an open world. Hopefully the open world will be better next time though, so the experience is more consistent.
As a shooter Rage 2 is incredible. It’s everything around that core competency that brings the game down. A lack of narrative, world building, and questionable design decisions in terms of progression leave the experience feeling flat.
I am so surprised by Rage 2. From the preview events, which mostly showcased its gameplay, I thought this game could be pretty special. Love it or hate it, the “attitude” those initial Rage 2 trailers exhibited made it distinct. Implementing that in a colorful open-world with Doom-style shooting is what I’ve been dreaming of since last year’s E3. In some ways, what we got is exactly that. But for everything Rage 2 does right, there’s another thing hindering it from being great.
