FIRST 10 MINUTES | X360, PS3, PC Tuesday, October 4, 2011 | 11:25 AM

Our videos of Rage

Our videos of Rage

We were hoping we would receive our copy of Rage in time to write a full review but unfortunately it got here for the game's release and we could only play the beginning of the adventure (again). Although I had discovered the first hour of id Software's new title on PC last August, I must say I was really impressed when launching the console version. Graphics, framerate and animations are all particularly superb and at times, it almost feels like jumping onto the next generation of hardware (except when you start looking at textures from up close). I'll leave you with four gameplay videos so you can see it for yourself.

Fantastic game, can't wait to buy it on Friday when its out in EU.

Game looks visually amazing and runs great on a 60fps which is always great, on consoles.

Weapons are very nice too, I love the Wingstick, decapitate heads or better when it gets stuck on the enemy.

Anyways, the textures looks great from afar but when you turn the texture is muddy and takes like half a second for it to show up, its somewhat annoying but I will let that pass.

Great videos Drift :)

Seriously cannot wait to see this on my gtx580 card. Shame they force auto detect though on pc assuming we all care for it to be at a solid 60fps which in turn means it will reduce stuff higher res I play which is 1920x1080, I'd rather increase some settings and play at 30. From what I played at eurogamer and seen in vids, shootings feels solid and fun and the AI were doing some crazy wall stunts at me trying to chop me down which was cool. Either way I won't complain for 24 quid.

dont care what anybody says 60fps in a fps makes a difference. This game looks very visually impressive.. never a good sign that the reviews have only just hit but hopefully it'll play decent enough

Game looks good,and surely want to play it,

but how stupid is that:
1.The Ark Chamber is just 5 minutes away from that other Guys Home by foot as it seems and 2min by car ???? WOW
2.It's not underground or buried under ruble ,and you wanna tell me that nobody was able to find that thing?

Since it seems those ark guys are so much worth,nobody is looking for them or salvage stuff. And it's just behind a closed door..1 closed door !

And outside it's pretty crowded as well,zeppelins ,bandits..that guys home..and really nobody found the ark ?

For a game that tries to immerse you into a world that's pretty dumb !

Otherwise it seems like a must play title,cant wait ! Cool..Thanks for the vids !

Pretty sure the reason why it wasn't found was because it only just surfaced and was unearthed at the wrong time, the Authority apparently know when they are all supposed to pop out of the ground and where but this one does so as you wake up.

This being the reason for why no one had found it until you get outside.

The Ghost Clan bandits who attack you at the start are no doubt checking out what all the rumbling was about and stumble across you.

As for why it became unearthed early, I think it was seismic activity.

This game deserves a 10/10 just for the epic atmosphere

Think it's because they are saying theres no story or that it's boring, I got the impression that it was getting high scores because people felt obliged because it's id, who knows.

I like the design in the game quite a lot, man I laughed at the raider standing and cleaning the floor while the others where commenting on smash TV.

I've been playing the game on PC for 2 hours now. My first thoughts about the game are:

- It runs smooth if you have a good nVida card, AMD are unlucky because of bad drivers at the moment. I play it at a rock solid 60fps (it's capped at 60 fps). But there is some strange pop-in of textures. If you turn fast, you can see all textures loading. So the streaming isn't perfectly optimised for pc.

- It looks great, although the textures are pretty low res (and that is an understatement at times). But as a whole it's an incredible looking game because of the amazing amount of detail. Everything looks different.

- the gunplay isn't as great as I thought it would be on PC. The weapons lack punch. They also don't sound great (but maybe that's because I've been playing the BF3 beta).

- Up until now the missions have been all of the same structure: go there, shoot the bad guys, pick something up, return to base. There is no story at all after 2 hours of playing. And I can see that it could get boring after a while. But the variety in scenery keeps me going.

I don't think that this will ever be considered as a classic game. Carmack is a genius with engines, but he's not a great game dev. After all these years, it should have been something that made me gasp. So far only the graphics have done so. everything else is meh.

Carmack has very little if anything to do with the actual game, if the game is boring or whatever is all Tim Willits.

My bad. Doesn't change my feelings on the game though.

haha I knew gunplay gonna suck, every single video posted before had that issue. Lack of punch and weird sound. In a game where is no story etc bad gunplay is a boomer . I'll give it a try one day just to see how good looking this game is.

Ok, somebody has to mention it: screen tearing (and not by a small amount!) Carmack may be a genius.. but six years of hard labour and console versions get texture pop-in and screen tearing out of the box. Maybe not-so-mega textures would have been better. This is not trolling. I follow Carmack since the early nineties and this is the first time I feel he has not reached his goal (technically).

+1

It's like giving $60 for game like Metro 2033 - nice visuals and atmosphere, but the gunplay is crap. :P

its like night and day between good and glorious. Of course, you can see the diference here on gamersyde videos, people that judge that (the fact it doesn't matter, derp derp) in youtube are dumb.

Of course it's a huge difference! Its a well common myth that it will be better at 30fps but with higher resolution/ anti-aliasing etc... That myth are from current-gen developers that are lazy to create something impressive at 60fps.

At 60fps you get twice of input information, and things like resolution and anti-aliasing starts to make very little impact on overall presentation. And it's of course truth - just understand it - it's TWICE of the visual input information! It's worth almost everything...

    droezelke @Moonwalker: I agree. Other than the Metal Gear series, he didn't really present something as good. And I thought MGS5 was ultra boring (2 Hours ago)

    Tiz @Moonwalker: 2 is the best Metal Gear Solid though. (3 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Personally i find Kojima rather overrated. Yes MGS and MGS3 were fantastic, 2 wasn't nearly as good, same for 4 and 5....nah. (4 Hours ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus @jmd749: Kojima Productions is independent. wrap that and give it away to your other half. (5 Hours ago)
