    Synopsis


    With a massive asteroid hurtling toward the planet, a select few humans have been chosen to inhabit modern-day arks — pods buried deep within the earth's core. You were chosen. You were buried alive. And you rose from the ground to face your worst nightmare. Hordes of mutants killing without a thought, bandit gangs wreaking havoc throughout the already defunct wasteland, a looming Authority seizing maniacal power and holding secrets — this is what remains of humanity. The world as you know it is gone, but if any world is to stand in its place, there's only one person left who can raise it up from the ashes — you. That is, if you can survive the Rage.

    Step up to the challenge and climb into the wasteland in a first-person shooter that flings you to the edge of the earth and the brink of extinction. Rage pits you against the odds in a desolate world in which you were selected for survival — just to face death at every turn. To redeem humanity, you must master a massive arsenal of exotic wingsticks, sentry boots, bomb cars and other powerful weapons and fearlessly wage war against the evil forces overtaking your planet. Fire through heart-pounding first-player shooting action, rip through the wasteland in high-octane vehicle chases and turn your car into your most deadly weapon — you have to play dirty if you want to live. Experience the mass decay with every painfully realistic detail with the id Tech 5 engine and Megatexture technology, firing at 60 frames per second to make you feel as if the world has crumbled around you. And when you take the battle online, the devastating action really does stretch around the world. You've survived the apocalypse. Now comes the real battle.

      The story

      Posted
      Darkpanda

      The game is set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland created by an asteroid impact, based on the real life asteroid Apophis, which is on track to pass near Earth in 2036. In Rage's story, the asteroid strikes on August 23, 2038, and the few pockets of survivors are forced to begin a new civilization. The world is populated by human survivors of the impact, who have come together to form settlements around oases and other practical or habitable locations. These fragile homes are diligently defended by the inhabitants against bandits and mutants, which are divided into various gangs and organizations of their own. Bandits and mutants serve as the player's main enemies for much of the game, although id Software has hinted at some sort of significant change around the halfway point in the storyline. The player emerges into this setting after being preserved inside an underground cryogenic pod called an Ark. The Arks are the direct result of the Eden Project, a massive international undertaking in which hundreds of Arks were sealed under the surface of the Earth with twelve people inside each. Each passenger possessed a special ability or trait that, combined with those of the other members, would help them rebuild society. The Eden Project, however, was far less successful than hoped. The player's Ark in particular is in bad shape at the start of the game. All of the other residents of the player's Ark are dead (presumably because of the impact), and the equipment of the Ark is destroyed as well, so the player wakes up alone and uninformed. With no memory of his identity or objective, the player is forced to head for the surface to find sustenance and allies

      This is not your normal first person shooter. There is much more to this game and there is a big world to explore throughout the campaign. The graphics are absolutely beautiful and if you install the game to your Xbox 360 hard drive it improves the graphics even more and improves load times. The only problem with that is that this game has 3 discs so if you install all 3 it's going to take a big chunk of your memory space on your hard drive but if you have a 250gb like me it's no big deal. This fantastic game, and everything is designed great. From the guns, to the world in the game, all the way down to a little plant. you might pass by. Everything has a lot of detail. I would definitely recommend this game!

      Great gameplay, lacking story

      Posted
      rybr4

      This game looks great even on my aging 42" LCD. I did have the occasional pop-in textures but that's a small price to pay when taking in the amazing wasteland crafted by id. The controls are tight and fluid. This game is simply fun to play, although I wish some of the gameplay options were fleshed out more. The real downfall of the game is the story. The initial setting is interesting enough, but there never seems to be much purpose to your actions. On top of that, the game ends rather quickly and the ending falls flat. The entire final level is extremely anticlimactic. As long as you go into Rage accepting that the story is flawed, and the real fun lies in the shootouts and driving sequences you will enjoy your time spent playing.

      Awesome shooter! great graphics!

      The game is great, the shooting mechanics are among the best that I ever played, the graphics are also among the best (if not the best) that I ever seen, game also offer driving battles and some RPG, but beware, this game is NOT like Fallout neither Borderlands, this is an action FPS with a little RPG, Driving and a little open world but not as open as Fallout, the only thing not so good about the game is the story, you basically receive a mission from one of the bosses on the 2 main towns in the game, you go and get it done, wash, rinse and repeat, if you like FPS for shooting gameplay and great graphics get the game, the driving looks a little out of place and the RPG elements as well but they are also fun. Overall a very good game.

      Highly disappointed

      I was highly disappointed in this game. It did not live up to the hype. The story was bland, it wasn't difficult at all, even on hardest setting, the ending was HORRIBLE. The vehicle parts, especially the racing, felt nothing more than an arcade offroad game and added no value to the game. There were audio problems. It seemed like the game was only 4.1 surround sound, not 5.1. The center channel didn't appear to be used at all, and dialog with characters came out of all speakers and was not directional. PC and console users alike reported this issue. It looked pretty good graphically although a bit cartoony for me. Note: I did not play any multiplayer.

      This game may not be as deep as some people expected but I loved it. Many people may pass this one up for some of the more popular tittles that are coming out this season, but you will be missing out on one of the most gorgeous games to date. The controls for a first person shooter is amazing. I have not seen many games lately that have so much detail in them. Do not pass this one up if was a pleasure to play and has tons to offer.

      Very Cool Game

      This game is in the new First Person Questing genre like Borderlands. You have mission to pickup and complete for various rewards like money, armor, etc... the game play is fun and challenging at times, has a great storyline and amazing graphics. If you ever played Borderlands this game is very similar in style and gameplay but the graphics are not cell shaded they are more traditional video game graphics.

      Looks like a beef'd up Fallout Game

      I hate making reviews for games that I have not played or has not come out yet but this looks like a game worth writing a little about. From watching numerous trailers this game looks like a beef'd up Fallout type of game and I love Fallout. This game pretty much grabbed the same concept of Fallout and added vehicles and different types of Bots. Looking forward to playing this game on Hard. It does look like a game worth purchasing. We just might have too wait and see.
