    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.

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

    Bonito y divertido videojuego.
    Los mejor de Rage 2 es cuando se parece a Doom, sin embargo la Paleta de colores, el mundo vacío pero colorido es aceptable. Nada mejor que caminar en esr desierto colorido y prepararte para la matanza. Divertido y el precio hoy en 2021 es muy bajo. Comprarlo pero si tienes una tv buena para que puedas sentir esa paleta de colores.

It'sAfter only a couple hours in, I was enjoying the hell out of Rage 2, the gameplay is enjoyable with awesome special moves and weapons. It's combat, for me, is fast paced and I can bounce around a bandit camp punching, shooting and launching enemies in all directions. The story is about as complex as its predecessor, nothing spectacular but a good enough excuse to bash in heads and throw bodies off of buildings. I'm now around three quarters of the way through this game and while it is repetitive with the activities, the way I can go about them is plentiful enough to keep my interest. This game feels like Mad Max's younger and more immature sibling, and I don't think I'd have enjoyed this as much if it took itself as seriously as Mad Max. The title is accurate, I can go around releasing pent-up aggression by being overpowering on random baddies. There are plenty of games that are story-driven, miserable, woe-is-me tales so it is a breath of fresh air to have a single player game that's just a bit of a laugh. I've enjoyed this game so much that I've made an account just to review it. I feel this game has a bad rep because it isn't aiming for the drama and political conflict in games like The Last Of Us but if we look to movies, the best ones aren't necessarily the best reviewed, Rage 2 is a little gem that I will keep playing to the end. P. S. I've never had to set foot in the microtransactions in the game. Expand

    The Good - Gunplay is nice and smooth, the visuals are good and there doesn't seem to be many bugs.

    The Bad - The gameplay is generic, the missions have no depth its just the same thing over and over without any increased challenge. The game world is rather small and lifeless. There are a lot of cut and paste areas in the world that have nothing to do, empty buildings, lifeless open fields etc and nothing to discover. There are next to zero random events in the open world. The player powers are old, one is a double jump power, wow, that's never been done in an FPS before. Overall the game is poor for a 2019 release. The campaign takes about 8-10 hours, which is a joke for a AAA priced game. Wait for a mega sale when its $10-$15.

    Having been especially looking forward to this game, I don't think I have ever been more disappointed in a game.
    The action packed fun ride of game sold in the trailers fails to live up to what was promised and becomes quite dull and repetitive all too quick.
    The world seems empty with generic filler quests, while the main story is uninspired and tedious.
    On top of this on release, at least, a number of bugs within the game made it literally unplayable.
