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.
Playing Rage 2 is infuriating. Despite the exemplary action and fluid controls, the shooter is cluttered with core design flaws that impeded my enjoyment. There is a damn good game buried underneath the low stakes story that’s filled with cutscenes that are interrupted by other cutscenes meant to explain a new character’s contrived backstory, and set in a world that lacks personality. Unfortunately, what we got is Avalanche’s Rage 2. Any game bearing id’s legacy should be all-play and no work, yet Rage 2 is too much work with not enough play.
The satisfying action and relentless chaos of Rage 2 peppers a formulaic open world with thrills.
