Rated 0 out of 10 by EliteEliminator 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.

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.
Rated 6 out of 10 by Tadeoka 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.
Rated 7 out of 10 by PsychoMantis99 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.
Rated 9 out of 10 by zybeznich Worth getting
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.
Rated 4 out of 10 by timmytimtimtim That's It!?!?!
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.
Rated 5 out of 10 by PsychoMantis99 Ugh!!!!
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!
Rated 1 out of 10 by tjmontgomery Thank God for Gamestop Return Policy!
Just bought this game to play for my HPG72 and was so excited cuz of the price, however when i got home and it wouldnt start after a 1 hour long install, I was so mad I carried my laptop to the store and tried to get the cashier to get the game to work for me! All I can say is thank god for their return policy and now let's hope far cry 2 works with this card they gave me my credit on, do not buy this GAME!!
Rated 5 out of 10 by Featherstone This is all I got for $60??
I loved this game, the smooth game play and stunning graphics blew me away. But when I finished it a day later I screamed "Wheres my content?" I have not clue what the online player experience is, but this aside from the awesome graphics, you get NO DOLLAR VALUE for this game. If your rich and dont mind paying top dollar for 20 hours of single player game play I'll sell you my copy.
