    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

    it seems the game takes more hatred than it actually deserve possibly because of micro-transactions and all that staff . i am not a fan ofit seems the game takes more hatred than it actually deserve possibly because of micro-transactions and all that staff . i am not a fan of transactions neither though i think that still this shouldn't have so low score . Anyway game's graphics are actually quite low compared to most of other ps4 games , also it has some poor design overall , and it has no option to optimize brightness which make it even worse . also driving not feeling so great and ofc story is also nothing special even though it doesnt really matter in these type of games . However the game is still really fun , fps feels great , it has some really cool weapons and destruction skills killing tons of enemies and literally kicking some ass is quite something ! in any case it could be way better but still there is no chance that it actually deserve a 4.5 , people just overreacting like always Expand

I finished it in about 8 hours and took it back for a full refund straight away. I was actually laughing towards the end at how bad the game was. Everything felt like a chore to me. The shooting mechanics are decent but the enemy AI is boring with a lack of variety. The music is a B grade version of Doom 2016 but still enjoyable. I strongly suggest you don't buy this game, it falls short in every way in my opinion. Very disappointing as it had potential to be awesome. Expand

    I don't want to spend a lot of time on this review, since I've already lost a lot of time playing RAGE 2, so I'll just say this.I don't want to spend a lot of time on this review, since I've already lost a lot of time playing RAGE 2, so I'll just say this.

    Mechanically, as a shooter, it's pretty good. I would rate it an 8/10 for its gameplay alone.

    The writing is AGGRESSIVELY bad, to the point where it treats its own story and characters like a joke and expects you to do the same. 1/10.

    Exploration is the least satisfying of any open world game I've ever played in my life. There are a few weapons and powers you have to find scattered across the wasteland, but that's it. It's a big open waste of time and space.

    Since the writing and characters are atrocious, and every bandit-infested gas station or roadside attraction is exactly the same, there is exactly zero motivation to do anything but follow the arrows to your next objective. At least the original RAGE had character, and a fun CCG built in.

    Skip RAGE 2.

    Menuda ponzoña de juego. Un puto caos desde el principio , con escenas sin sentido que pretenden ser epicas y no llegan a ná.
