    Rage 2 shines in its gunfights, driving sequences, and from the fun perks and upgrades that you can use. The open world is an invitation to exploration but still sometimes feels a bit empty.

    If narratively shallow yet entertaining movies are popcorn flicks, Rage 2 is the ultimate popcorn game, and that’s okay. At no point during my 15 hours running rampant around its post-apocalyptic wasteland did I feel the need to know more about a character’s subplot, or question the antagonist’s motives. I was too caught up in the spectacle of carnage to care.

    RAGE 2's unique visual style and genuinely fun gameplay mechanics ultimately outweigh a bit uninspired mission design, a disappointing story and at times flawed technical execution. If you can live with that, you'll absolutely have fun.

    The satisfying action and relentless chaos of Rage 2 peppers a formulaic open world with thrills.

    Rage 2 is a victim of a wave of technical issues and painfully average story but still manages to be one of the most fun FPS you can encounter and can provide you with your adrenaline shot for the day if needed.

    Rage 2 sadly epitomises everything that’s stale about the gaming market today, and while it’s by no means a bad game, it’s just one that should have released years ago, if at all.

    The outside looks good, but the moment you get close enough to interact with anything, it never ceases to reveal just how shallow it is. The missions, the few that actually exist, end the same way and are quite frequently unimpressive, the wasteland looks great but is boring to traverse and explore, and the few things that are good, like the combat, are mired with systems that are either a hassle to get access to or a hassle to deal with. It’s been a while since I have been genuinely disappointed with a game in almost every way. I don’t like this feeling. And neither will you.

    It's like every other ID software game, you have to be in it for the combat. I rate it an 8/10 but put 10/10 to counter balance a bit. ForIt's like every other ID software game, you have to be in it for the combat. I rate it an 8/10 but put 10/10 to counter balance a bit. For some background i am typically a fan of most fps games like far cry as well as doom and Wolfenstein. It feels just like the previous rage but better in every way which is exactly what i was hoping for. The game runs perfect on PS4 and i haven't had a single issue so far. If you have similar tastes in games to what i have mentioned i would highly recommend picking up the game. Expand

I was surprised that it continued the story from the first (since not many played!) but the story is paper thin. Just an excuse to get you to explore various areas of the map. The shooting mechanics are well done by ID, albeit I felt a bit OP towards the end so it was not difficult! The biggest issue has to be the open world; it feels bland, lifeless & uninteresting to explore. Traveling feels like a chore with long empty roads and little variation regardless of the biome. Car combat is rare however taking down convoy leaders is the best part! Picking off minions before engaging with the boss on the open road felt fun! Still there isn’t a sense of speed in driving. Aside from locating Arks for new abilities/weapons, I just don’t feel compelled to explore the map (which is rare for me!). The humour is just not funny. Combat wise the game is good, but the other weak aspects just weigh it down too much, it’s just another post-apocalyptic open world game released this year. Expand

    Эта игра полностью соответствует фразе "Сделали на отъ...бись".
    Хотя многие не согласны, а мне первая часть понравилась. Да были недостатки (эти чертовы покатушки, терпеть не могу), но в целом и сюжет и особенно перестрелки, так же оружие с шикарными модернизируемыми боеприпасами! А какие персонажи харизматичные! Но!!! Надо все выкинуть на свалку и сделать по новому, а не развивать то, что есть! Поэтому оружие стало скучным (про боеприпасы забыли), сюжет... кому он нахрен нужен, машинки (терпеть не могу) абсолютно не на что не влияют, кроме "леталки". Они даже умудрились угробить всю харизму персонажей первой части!
    Но главное это концовка, её просто нет. Нет и все.
    А ещё баги, ё маё на PS4 у меня игра умудрилась вылететь 18 раз и повесить намертво консоль 2 раза!!!
    В одном "городе" я уже подумал, что придется бросить прохождение, но на Солнце упал метеорит (или НЛО) и после 9 вылетов скрипт сработал.
    Плюс ко всему игра ОЧЕНЬ короткая. Зачем надо было делать этот обрубок? Такое ощущение, что делали, делали, ещё цельный год впереди, а издатель говорит "Выпускай, что есть. Скорей, скорей, нужно прямо сейчас! И в таком виде купят".
    Ну и как сейчас модно этот гребаный феминизм, просто не веришь тому, что происходит.
    Но кому хочется пострелять, это есть. Стрелять приятно, ну как всегда у id Software. И еще сверхспособности.и..и...и..........
