    Since we took our first steps in Avalanche Studios' post-apocalypse, we have had a hard time putting the control aside. The combination of an open world, mutant freaks and super powers is too entertaining, actually far above our expectations. Along with the eminent control and the dynamic battles, it makes Rage 2 one of the year's most addictive titles to date.

    RAGE 2 is a frantic, mad and satisfying FPS, with tons of possibilities to play and kill enemies and with a very rich endgame.

    RAGE 2 is an honest game, a true ode to brainless action that doesn’t want or need to be perfect. Avalanche Studios and id Software have crafted a game that’s funny from the beginning to the end thanks to an awesome gameplay and an open world full of things to do.

    RAGE 2 delivers an absolutely stunning shooter experience, with nice weapons and powers to unlock, but it's also really short for an open world game, way too easy at medium difficulty and not so fun when it comes time to drive across the map.

    Rage 2 could have been so much more. The gun action feels and looks awesome, but the world in which it all happens is just too flat and the story doesn't help either.

    For all of its attempts at garish glitter, Rage 2 is a muted, cliché, and uninspiring experience that's propped up by spectacular shooting and neverending battles that sometimes live up to the promise of a carnival of carnage.

    Rage 2's brilliant shooting fails to make up for its shortcomings everywhere else. Because even though there's fun to be had in the Wasteland, the shooting fails to keep me wanting more after not too many hours of gameplay. And when that happens, the lackluster story, the shallow characters and the repetitive mission systems all reveal what a bland experience this really is.

    This game is pure bubblegum fun and I’m glad I bought it even after seeing mixed reviews. Super cool, Mad max esque open world. Far largerThis game is pure bubblegum fun and I’m glad I bought it even after seeing mixed reviews. Super cool, Mad max esque open world. Far larger than reviews make it seem. I don’t even care for first person games and I’m hooked. There is an incredible amount of content and stuff to do and has loads of character. People giving it less than a 6 are spoiled trolls and part of this new culture/trend where it’s cool to hate on everything that isn’t flawless. Grow up. Expand

    What's up with the bad scores? Were you expecting an open world RPG? As a shooter the game is excellent! Of course the missions will repeat...What's up with the bad scores? Were you expecting an open world RPG? As a shooter the game is excellent! Of course the missions will repeat... it's all about shooting stuff around and the game delivers that. Do not listen to the haters! If you are a fan of Doom 2016 and Far Cry, this game is for you!

    PS: Please Bethesda/Avalanche... give us a flashlight, this is really the flaw that annoys me the most!

    This game has good gory gunplay and…nothing else. Driving is better than Rage 1, graphic is mediocre by today’s standard. But human charactersThis game has good gory gunplay and…nothing else. Driving is better than Rage 1, graphic is mediocre by today’s standard. But human characters are just ugly, especially females characters, far uglier than Rage 1. This is actually the most unbearable drawback for me.
    I've played the game for over 6 hours, but so far I haven't seen any pretty female nor handsome male NPC, regardless friend or foe. Even my closet female ally NPC are ugly as hell. I'm just in that swamp city now and dear lord those NPC sure are even more hideous than others lol. I thought developers only make enemies look like ugly punk ass S*W so we can shoot them happily, but nope, I’m wrong big time. Every freaking human characters I’ve seen in this game are ugly! Sad I can’t refund the game now…..

    Rage once passed with pleasure. Rage 2 immediately pushed by his -acid gamma. While refraining from buying.

    I miss when Devs would make the game they wanted,not what research and marketing think we want.Rage 2 has the dullest open world since Mafia 3I miss when Devs would make the game they wanted,not what research and marketing think we want.Rage 2 has the dullest open world since Mafia 3 and the main difference between Rage and Rage 2 is that it simply takes longer to drive to the core loop.I also miss the mini games from the first game.These,combined with races and MBTV at least made a corridor shooter a little more interesting.An open world game needs variety and a lot of weapons,tools and loot,none of which this game has.Sure it has some powers (If you call double jump a power,),but sadly they are mostly dull and the player has to work really hard to eek some fun out of this lifeless shooter.Characters and story are uninteresting and I coundn't have cared less who anyone was or what they said.That includes my own incredibly generic "Ranger" who is Joe or Jane Nobodycares.At least the shooting itself is expectedly solid.

    If they had focused on the combat it may have been a funner game. Instead, the same open-world tropes are used and abused to pad the contentIf they had focused on the combat it may have been a funner game. Instead, the same open-world tropes are used and abused to pad the content and it shows. Short, exciting bouts of combat are spaced out between inane collection hunting. Meh. Expand
