Could Be Incredible
I am definitely looking forward to this game. id Software always has the best looking and most technical game engines when they release their games. They look amazing and the gameplay and controls are always very tight and precise. The thing that has always been lacking with their games is a great storyline. The story always seems a bit mediocre to pretty good. Sometimes feels like it is something to showcase their engine and graphics that does a decent job of entertaining you but doesn't make you say, "Wow!" when you're done with it. I'm hoping with this latest game they can change that. If they can get a good story to go with this incredible game engine, it'll turn out to be one really fun game.
I will definitely be getting this game but if you are one who wants a really good story instead of something that's mediocre to pretty good, you might want to wait on this one and see how the reviews go on it.
Not much of a preview, though I do plan on getting this game with out doubt... However, just a quick question/wonder??? Since when did PC games start costing the same as the console games? I mean has it NOT ALWAYS BEEN $59.95 for console, and $49.95 for PC? Also, when are game makers going to STOP feeling the need to shoe horn some BS muti player content into all NEW games?? It seems every game that comes along with a wonderful single player campaign that sells great, it seems the makers of said game feel the need to dumb the whole thing down just to add some dumb MP aspect. While I know this is not quite possible, I kind of with game makers would make 2 copies of their games. Both of which cost the same, $29.95 for a disk with all single player content. As well as a second disk for the same price. In this way those that love single player games can get just what they want, while those that just want MP can get what they want. And being that both are the same price, buying both will still cost the same as a new title, though this would give us the option to pick that which we enjoy most.
The game at the beginning is kinda slow and boring maybe like the first hour is uninteresting. Then later on when you get to do more interesting mission and better guns, that is when the real fun starts. I love the grafix of head exploding on my screen and blood flying in every direction. It is also very challenging , well depends on your difficulty settings. I would not really call it an open world rpg like skyrim or fallout. They force you to do missions because then you may not get new weapons. My opinion, this game is definitely worth getting.
Will John Carmacke make or break it for ID?
This is it.
This is it for ID. Theyre legends in FPS games having made games like Quake, Doom, Hexen, Wolfenstein and Heretic which were all legends in gaming. But after Quake 3 it seems ID went on a wrong track with bad games like Quake 4 and Quake Wars.
So now Carmacke - the mastermind of ID has decided to make a brand new series. What can I say? I am interested! BUT I have some preservations. Quake 4 was not very good and multiplayer wise ID has had their butt kicked by Call Of Duty so there no longer kings. BUT if Carmacke can make a comeback here I believe he can.
This game already looks good with tons of innovations. BUT it also looks a lot like Doom 3 which might mean it will have a lot of same gameplay which failed in Quake 4. If this has good multiplayer like Quake 3, Carmacke might be able to challenge for the throne again? If not, I think ID will go OUT OF business!
I would pre order it but after Qiuake 4 I am not so sure ID can do a good job so I will wait for the reviews to come in first before buying it, SORRY ID.
Stunning Visuals Can't Salvage This Entire Game
Rage is fun, for about the first 45 mins. The gameplay is rather simple and does little to stray from other fps games. The story is badly put together, even though it does seem to have a deep underlying plot. It doesn't flow from one part to next and does very little to draw you in. To be honest, it reminded me entirely too much of the plot in Fallout 3.
The weapons in this game need a damage tweak. It shouldn't take 25-30 assault rifle rounds to put down an unarmored target, and head shots on an unarmored target should be insta kills. I've actually had a target survive after I staggered him with an assault rifle burst, and then unloaded half a clip into his head while he was staggering past me.
There are a few things I do like about the game. It does have stunning visuals and very detailed character designs, backgrounds, and terrain. The sound only enhances the immersion and fits the scenery perfectly.
Overall this game is ok, but I would suggest renting it first before you throw $60 out the window. Generally, PC games are cheaper than their console versions, but for reasons unknown, this one was an exception. I'll know better next time ID makes a game, and opt to wait and see what the feedback is before overpaying for a PC game again.
So I had maybe 5-6 hours of game play of a couple of days and I beat the game really not even trying to complete the game. the story line is just too short. I know that there is a lot of side quests, races, etc, but without any real incentive to complete them i kinda ignored most of them. The game was beautifully designed, but without enough content and well build story line it is just not enough to make it worth the money imho. Nice try Id, but your arrow was slightly off the mark on this one.
This game is trullly adicting, amazing in fact. when i got this game i was exsited like alot and i have a reason to be exsited. I got this game rage for pc and not xbox for the keep me busy thing when away. this game did keep me busy and it still is this is why i am going to have to get this for consell.
The start is kind of boring but after a few missions you get real stuff and exsiting missions so dont stop eaven if you can because this will drag you in. when you try to ignore a mission you cant the prise will drag you in. but some times its good to ignore, perfect time to go gamble some money, use money, upgrade every thing, race in intence time trials rocket races miny gun and non gun races, and talk to people, look for more job offers, and just go explore the wasteland.
The enimy's are pretty good fun to but some can be chalanging. a gun for every purpes, eaven if there is not a big selection you never get bord with the arsenall.
The deatale in the game is pritty good but the graphics lack it may just be my computer or the actull game, also the textures take a litle to load but no biggy. also the game crashes every so often and that is why it said to save often the wasteland is a dangeres place but no its there crashing that is dangeres so just pretend that the wasteland is dangeres and play along.
Now the muiltiplayer... dont pay it of what im awar of there is no actull raceing it is just drive around like a dip and shoot each other no point at all, just stick to campaighn. one thing that would be cool is to have a like survivall mode but they dont so dont get down on that because you have the amazing co op if wanted campaighn but at points will make you LAFFFfff when chilling whith crazy joe.
Just OK so far....
Ive played about 8 hours of the PC version and I find myself having mixed feelings about it. Its definitly fun with tight gameplay but so far its got that been there done that. Dont expect deep gameplay like Borderlands as this is more about pure action and doing missions. The vehicles handle well. My main gripe is on PC I was expecting more from the graphics. Its definitly pretty,but up close the textures look really bad,no matter what I do to AA or resolution,and I have a pretty decent rig. Make sure you get the latest drivers for your grahics card or you will have texture pop up and screen tearing! I still like the game though,and will continue playing.
Rage re-defines post-apocalyptic games. The graphics in the game are one of the best I've seen in a while. The game play and sound are also phenomenal. The story line, however, wasn't particularly good. There wasn't really an ending to the whole game. You just keep getting moved from one setting to the other, no real plot in my opinion. Overall, it is well worth the $60.
If this is next gen. graphics then I guess Im not ready for it. Ill admit Ive spent some money on my PC getting it ready for Batman,Battlefield 3,and Skyrim. Naturally I expect a graphical payoff. So why can I run the Witcher 2 and Crysis 2 on maxed out settings and when I put this in it has the worst (and I mean worst!) textures I have ever seen?!! Dont buy this until you hear about some really good patches because after Crysis 2 I just cant bear to look at this game anymore!
