    PSU - John Carmack apologizes for RAGE issues, including bad ending & poor marketing

    Read more here: http://www.psu.com/a016404/John-Carm...poor-marketing

    Incredible visuals, visceral gunplay, long installations - all things one might associate with id Software's RAGE. Not often associated with RAGE are apologies and regret, but that's exactly what id co-founder John Carmack brought to the stage for today's QuakeCon 2012 keynote address.

    Speaking to the gathered crowd of journalists and industry enthusiasts, Carmack immediately came forth with criticism and genuine reflection about the game. He first expressed his disappointment with the ending, before going on to state that the PC version in particular was very poorly handled in terms of driver support. Furthermore, he acknowledged that the world of RAGE was essentially a shell with little in terms of the interaction many players were expecting.

    I haven't beat the game yet (I only got to the 2nd city) but from what I played, I didn't find it that bad.

    I enjoyed the game myself. The ending was anti-climatic but otherwise it was a good game imo.

    60FPS was a mistake. 30FPS would satisfy the wall huggers.
    PC version was a mess more so on AMD hardwares.

    I enjoyed the game. Wasn't anything mind bending or new but it was a fun game. It had its issues and the ending sucked but it wasn't bad.

    Got this unopened in my backlog. The "anarchy edition", whatever that means. Picked it up from Amazon for like 7 few months back. Now I'm expecting a bad ending whenever I do end up playing it

    I love Rage but still haven't finished it yet. Carmack is still one of the pioneers of the industry.

    The ending is horrible. That $#@! just comes out of nowhere. It's like running into a brick wall with a blindfold on = you saying WTF when you realize it's over and isn't just a cutscene.

    Don't let it scare you. It's a fun game just has its flaws.

    That edition comes with extra downloadables. One pack is a bunch of sewer missions and the other contains extra in-game items (a double barrel shotgun, spiked gloves for beating the hell out of things, the best armor available in the game and an extra vehicle which is pretty good in the earlier stages of the game befroe you get the REALLY good cars).

    Yes, it was sad that AMD couldn't get working drivers out.

    Really hope that Doom4 will not have as hard launch as Rage did.
