I couldn't get into it either but for $3 it's worth a try. Mindless shooter basically.

I remember that game. It got me all so excited about the infinite possibilities that would open up for me once I beat that first major boss... and then the game ended :(

I'd say it's definitely worth it. It had technical issues, and the story sucks ass, but for $3 you get a pretty decent shooter with a great atmosphere.

I think its kind of interesting this game has been on my wishlist in a meh sort of way for something like 5-10 years but its never dropped below 4.99 on steam. I suspect it never will until it shows up in a humblebundle for free.

So much praise in this thread. Doesn't even sound worth it for $3 or that it offers anything special that can't already be had in other games.

the game was horrid. it took 2 months of patching, driver updates, and config changes to make it work on my PC. the title was a good call though, as RAGE is what it made me do

It isn't. You'll have more fun with daikatana.

I bought it about a year ago on a Steam sale for $4.99 and never played it until a couple months ago. It wasn't anything fantastic, but for a mindless shooter it was okay. I played for a couple of weeks and then found the video poker machines and never looked back. It's worth $3 just to play video poker all day... :p

Please. People are just angry and snarky by default these days because its oh so hip and cool.

The game's surprisingly fun; I avoided it when it first came out due to the bad reviews, but played it a couple years ago and was surprisingly entertained. The boomerangs are fun.

I got it for $20 at some point and, except for the end "boss" I felt like I got my money's worth in game play. NOT in graphics, to be sure, but the game itself was fun. Well worth $3 for a console shooter.

I remember Kyle was so fucking mad when this came out, it was pretty entertaining.

^ a ringing endorsement if I ever heard one

Taken from the "RAGE Gameplay Performance and Image Quality" page back then...

That was good enough for me to skip it, and to this day I've never looked back. ;)

I liken the whole [H] Rage Rage thing to how it was hip to [H]ate on Newegg for like two years there when Kyle and Newegg had an advertising beef... Sometimes you get a bunch of people that think it's uber cool to fall in line behind the people who have the ability (and platform) to make the most noise.


Was the game worth the $50 it originally cost? Hell no... Is it worth picking up for $5? Of course!

If a game sucks it sucks. I would still feel let down if I spent $5 on the game because my time is worth more than that. The 3-5 hours you'll spend beating the game would be better served in fallout 4 or pretty much anything else.

This was the very first game I cancelled my preorder for. I cancelled the day before release. I've only preordered Fallout 4 since. Thanks Rage!

I actually had this pre-ordered and received it from Amazon. Read the reviews and was able to return it (had paid around $50 or $60 for the pre-order). Bought it last year for ~$5 and have played it off and on for a few hours. Honestly I thought it was perfectly fine for that price. I haven't finished it and probably never will, but I find it worth goofing around in for $3. Like I said before, if nothing else once you get into the casino, the video poker is worth the $3 if nothing else... :p
