I'm back on the fence again with this one. As a whole i'm expecting it to be a nice adventure type experience, but the combat here i found a bit boring

Same. It looks like all those sentry bots do is alleviate the need to actually shoot for yourself. It looks pretty stale right now, IMO...

I find you can often tell these things by watching a video but maybe there is just a lot more to it that isn't shown or indicated that well. Maybe the videos themselves do a poor job

Still looks damn cool to me.

Everything about this video was freaking amazing to me!

Great visuals, detail, music, artdesign, intense firefights, just great.

Day 1 purchase!

Doesn't help that the person playing this obviously knows where every enemy and or threat is. Not to mention how to handle them. I think part of what makes it look boring, is the person playing it frankly.

this, but i've thought as much since the first gameplay trailer was released. love the style of it, and graphically it's pretty nice. but the gameplay seems a bit underwhelming.

people rave about how Id where the creators of the genre, and for some reason that allows them to be excused for dated design and gameplay? was doom good, hell yes, it was amazing. but for the fathers of the first person shooter, they really arnt doing much to improve upon it.

I dream of the day I get to see a 60fps video of this game >.<

KORN, mind telling us what you think what would improve upon the FPS genre that hasent been done before.

I seriously cant think of any.
Titles like Bioshock, Borderlands, Deus Ex...etc. they have done so much other than run and gone that if some other developer implement such a thing as well people would still say "oh so they copied *this* and *that* so there is no improvement, boring".

I am just curious to know what you think would be great idea to improve the genre upton, if you can that is.

IMO, if you are going to do something that already has been done before, make sure you do it perfectly, and that is something I see in RAGE.

The gameplay has that slight loot/quest/explore think going on and inventory menu you usually see in RPGs, gunplay is great, visuals are unique and amazing, it runs 60fps especially on consoles and STILL looks one of the best titles. I think RAGE is easily one of the best upcoming titles this year even though it doesnt improve the genre (which is very hard to do these days with so much FPS on the market), it sure as hell seem to deliver atleast.

You know, the game should be as close to Killzone as possible. :P

i think thats kind of the problem, i dont think you can..

its weird, it seemed like when it was announced everyone was excited and i was like "meh boring" but as gameplay videos and interviews have come out i want it more and more but people that were excited before hate it or something

impressed, shame there is so many other great games coming out near the release.

ID usually makes fun shooters.. But I'm not really impressed by the texturedetail in this clip.. Hopefully this was the consoleversion and PC will be better..
Commented on 2011-08-26 15:37:51
Such an incredible game!

Day one for me, I agree with Sath though, this game will blend various genres perfectly not found in shoters this days.

of course you can. it's difficult, but surely the inventors of the genre has some idea's up their sleeves aside from "point and shoot" but then again, Id has never being about much aside from the tech, so it's not really surprising to me that the game is how it is. even if it's just borrowing elements from multiple games and genres and combine them to make something different (esentially what games like borderlands or deus ex or even uncharted do). RAGE is as straight forward as an FPS can get. there is no deviation from the path they created what? 20 years ago. i just kinda wished they tried to do a bit more then just "run and gun". because atm, and as with doom 3, i'm seeing great tech and art mixed with quite dated design.

and no, rage shouldnt be exactly like killzone since it borrows far too many elements from COD, but i would like the combat to at least be as frenetic and brutal as killzone. combat is what is killing rage for me atm. the enemies have great reaction to impacts, but they act dumb, the guns sound weak, and as a result combat looks very unsatisfying and "hollow". as froz said....stale. doom 3 seemed to have nailed the combat better then this. which makes it even more depressing that the next game from that studio has made those elements worse.

i want to like it, since it's clear it's a big budget, well polished release. but footage has done nothing but put me off. i just dont think it looks particularly entertaining.

The diference KORN here is that RAGE "will" have awesome gunplay and it will still be a FPS not a RPG not a racing game, so in that aspect it is indeed making something diferent, there is no compromise in gameplay.

I don't actually know what are you seeing or if you are mistaken as to what is RAGE, is not a regular FPS, it has sidemissions, loot, inventory, racing, main missions, mini games, its not just pouint a to point b shooter.

And the other thing you metion well thats subjective because I think it looks great in that deparment.

I agree with what some folks are saying, that this game looks a bit stale in terms of the action. I feel alot of shooters just give the player a pile weapons and dump a load of enemies at him. The player just has to strife around the environment shooting until the enemies are dead; there is little else going on in alot of shooters.

I always think battles with one or two super smart A.I.. would make for a much more interesting game. Make it less about big bangs and more about trying to out whit the foes.

i know what elements make up the game, and the lesser elements look fine (exploration, talking to characters, etc) but the core of the experience is going to be driving combat, and shooting. and both of those elements look kinda wank. driving has been reported as being far too floaty in previews and by far the weakest element of the game. and footage shows just how tame the combat looks. it should be viceral, and brutal, and intense and exciting. but it looks boring. spawn a few spider-bots, and shoot some weak sounding guns...combat is just too stale imo. especially for a game called RAGE and especially for a game that is very much a shooter created by the people who pretty much created the genre. hell, the combat in bodycount looks more impactfull and impressive then this, and that game is shite.

It's not about doing something new or improving it necessarily, but at least meeting the standards of the better shooters out there. You don't have to reinvent the wheel (it's a shooter at it's core) but it should roll as well as possible. I'm just not seeing a great shooter- I'm seeing what will ultimately be a run-of-the-mill shooter with nice graphics (low-rez textures not withstanding). I could be wrong.

That's even worse. I've been playing Halo 1 (as well as Uncharted 2 and Gears 2) recently, and I am shocked at how incredible the game-play is. The AI is just fantastic, and it doesn't matter one whit beyond the first strike that you knew where those enemies start in whatever engagement. This game doesn't seem to even need the 60 fps as the play is looking so slow. They should just drop it and put in destruction, lol.

I've always been on the fence with this game. The bad part is that I've always wanted to like it, but the more I see of it, it just seems to be lacking something special...
Commented on 2011-08-26 17:43:37
How anyone can say the combat looks boring is beyond me. To me it just looks like the same kind of combat found in Half Life 2, and oh boy, was that game boring? Yeah, that's exactly what I thought too.

    Tiz Halo is a lot more dependent on individual skill which makes gunfights more intense and Overwatch is far more dependent on team synergy. (1 Hour ago)
