    Since we took our first steps in Avalanche Studios' post-apocalypse, we have had a hard time putting the control aside. The combination of an open world, mutant freaks and super powers is too entertaining, actually far above our expectations. Along with the eminent control and the dynamic battles, it makes Rage 2 one of the year's most addictive titles to date.

    RAGE 2 is a frantic, mad and satisfying FPS, with tons of possibilities to play and kill enemies and with a very rich endgame.

    It would be easy to break this game down to its constituent elements. You drive, shoot, and soak up loot, slowly growing strong enough to rip the head off of an evil empire. Each piece holds satisfaction and joy that belies its base description, however. Combat in Rage 2 feels smooth as glass, with every gunfight playing to a violent rhythm. Travelling throughout the world is fast and engaging, with every pit stop bringing new wonders of varying quality. Even the stock-standard open world components have been polished to a vibrant sheen. While it hasn’t reinvented the wheel, Rage 2 still manages to deliver on every promise with ease. Among sandbox shooters, this game shines, crackles, and sparks.

    RAGE 2 delivers an absolutely stunning shooter experience, with nice weapons and powers to unlock, but it's also really short for an open world game, way too easy at medium difficulty and not so fun when it comes time to drive across the map.

    Rage 2 could have been so much more. The gun action feels and looks awesome, but the world in which it all happens is just too flat and the story doesn't help either.

    Rage 2 delivers incredible action at a ridiculous pace which makes it easily one of the best FPS experiences I've had in years. Sadly the rest of the game falls flat in comparison, with uninspired open world design, clunky driving and a shallow story that can be finished in just a couple of hours.

    Rage 2's brilliant shooting fails to make up for its shortcomings everywhere else. Because even though there's fun to be had in the Wasteland, the shooting fails to keep me wanting more after not too many hours of gameplay. And when that happens, the lackluster story, the shallow characters and the repetitive mission systems all reveal what a bland experience this really is.

    Amazing game. Runs perfectly on PC at 1440p ultra, more than stable 60fps with a Ryzen 5 1600x - GTX 1070 & 12 GB 3000Mhz RAM. Story seemsAmazing game. Runs perfectly on PC at 1440p ultra, more than stable 60fps with a Ryzen 5 1600x - GTX 1070 & 12 GB 3000Mhz RAM. Story seems interesting up to now Avalanche did put emphasis on that the story is not the main focus of this game. Loads to do in & around the world. Plenty of locations like strongholds etc to capture which are fun enough & from what I've seen unique in their own right. The same could be said even for 'raider' gas station locations. Not one filler objective is a copy & paste of the last which I have been really impressed with. Big improvement on the just cause series & you'd struggle to go more than a few 100m before discovering the next location. There are roaming traders & various other NPCs with small challenges all over the wasteland. Each city I've come across so far has It's own memorable personality, the team seem to have taken a lot of care in bringing these places to life & if you stop & appreciate the smaller details you'll see this for yourself. Haven't had to many issues in terms of glitches, few interaction icons taking a while to load in etc but nothing game breaking & major. The issues with Rage 2 from a technical standpoint seem to be more similar to the more polished PS2 era of gaming as apposed to the 'release it half finished' culture of modern times. Mechanics and game play are great, very doom-esque & extremely fun with depth to weapons & player abilities. close to 20 hours & I've hardly touched the story or world around me. If you're into open world first person shooters you'll more than likely enjoy this game! Don't normally pre-order & i'm not disappointed with my decision to pre-order Rage 2. If you're not an entitled 21st century cry baby you wont be disappointed.

    My actual rating would be 8/9 out of 10 but I've maxed it out to help level it out

Does nothing at all to the gameplay. It does'nt try making you buy them in anyway. The story? Just play the damn game, not all games have to win an Academy award. The point is the fun gameplay, and this game has it in spades. It's a good time. Expand

    This game has good gory gunplay and…nothing else. Driving is better than Rage 1, graphic is mediocre by today’s standard. But human charactersThis game has good gory gunplay and…nothing else. Driving is better than Rage 1, graphic is mediocre by today’s standard. But human characters are just ugly, especially females characters, far uglier than Rage 1. This is actually the most unbearable drawback for me.
    I've played the game for over 6 hours, but so far I haven't seen any pretty female nor handsome male NPC, regardless friend or foe. Even my closet female ally NPC are ugly as hell. I'm just in that swamp city now and dear lord those NPC sure are even more hideous than others lol. I thought developers only make enemies look like ugly punk ass S*W so we can shoot them happily, but nope, I’m wrong big time. Every freaking human characters I’ve seen in this game are ugly! Sad I can’t refund the game now…..

This game is brilliant, honestly a lot of the points people are using to give low ratings are simply untrue if you actually play this game; particularly if you're not trying to play some other game through it.
    Edit: humble pie, encountered bug that everyone has preventing you completing final mission. Bethesda are completely ignoring it, and all support would way is "we know". 27 hrs were still fun, so going from 10 to 5.

I would genuinely love to be a fly on the wall in these studios to see exactly how they make such a mess out of such an opportunity of a game as Rage 2. Seriously who in their development team thought that the writing was okay? I've never felt so uncomfortable listening to dialogue in a video game before. Do they not put any thought into making these games? How can we possibly make it so the world doesn't feel so empty and lifeless, how do we make it so missions all seem unique and have you doing interesting and varied tasks? Clearly these questions were not asked.

    It's a real shame because there are some incredible people who work on these games, I just wish the heads of these companies would give them the creative freedom and time they need to make good games.
