Rage is that while it is not a bad game, it just doesn’t live up to the hype. Strip away the high resolution textures and all you’re left is Borderlands without guns, Grand Theft Auto without car jacking, Fallout without the character building. To many, id is regarded as the father of the first person shooter. If we were to roll with that comparison, Rage is like the elderly patriarch who has returned to assert dominance over his brood, only to find that they have long surpassed him.
Although this isn’t a huge leap forward, both the visuals and the gameplay are good enough that FPS fans are really going to enjoy this game on their 360. Is it worth purchasing? This is one of those 8/10’s I would go rent before I would buy, just because I think some might be disappointed with the lack of modes to choose from online.
