Summary

Rage is the complete package that fans of shooters, RPGs, and buggy racers have been waiting for. Combined with its jaw-dropping visual presentation, Rage easily one of the best games of the year.

We like

  • Intense, action-packed gun battles
  • Stunning presentation
  • Sophisticated A.I.

We dislike

  • The lacklustre plot
  • Questionable ending
  • Multiplayer lacks competitive FPS element
