    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

This game is just dumb fun, and I think that's what most iD games are. Like John Carmack (founder of iD) said: “Story in a game is like story in a p*rn movie. It's expected to be there, but it's not important.”

    I never really write reviews for games, but I just don't understand the negative critics here. I gave it a 10 to compensate, but it's really more of an 9/10.

    The shooting mechanics feel incredibly tight, the vehicles are fun to drive, the graphics are quite good for an open world game, the art direction is beautiful, and most of all - it's fun! I haven't had this fun in a game since Doom (2016) and Zelda - Breath of the wild.

    If you see it on sale, give it a try!

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

    I got Rage 2 pretty late in the game, at fall 2020. Which meant it was properly patched up.
    And its lucky I did give it a chance, for it turned out to be pretty solid, and fun, shooter.
    The action is fast and furious, and fun, and because the skill trees are so diverse and guns have their own skill trees, it all make the combat worth while, as there is always something to put your 'skill points' into.
    On the visual side, the game is not particularly impressive. And the only difference when upgrading to PS4 Pro seemed to be better framerate.
    All in all this game is a good choice if you are already bored of Borderlands and Fallout, and want something new to shoot at on a large map.

An incredibly bland, repetitive game that further drives the point home that I need to stop buying games until a decent amount of user reviews come out. Every aspect of this game is low bar. From graphics and sound to story and characters. The gameplay is fun enough at first but becomes incredibly bland and monotonous after a few hours. In hindsight, I wouldn’t pay more than $20 for this. Expand

This is no game that cares for its story, it's only used as an excuse for the gameplay, so one just has to accept that. HOWEVER, I played this game on my base PS4, and HOLY CRAP! I have never had a game that made me think that first, the sticks on my controller were broken, then, that my AV receiver was somehow causing a latency so it had me redone my cable management to plug my ps4 directly to my tv, and then, had my thinking that my TV had broken and was no longer supporting game mode. And why ? As it turns out, this game has not been optimised for the base ps4 so there is a horrible input lag that causes a weird acceleration and buggy dead zone, making precise aiming nealy impossible, which is just unacceptable for a fast shooter like this. It made me turn on the aim assist , that's how bad it was. That is the reason alone i gave this game a 4, otherwise i would have given it a solid 7. So heads up when buying this game for the base ps4 Expand
