Rage 2 is a big, dumb shooter thats a lot of fun
See the original posting on The Verge
Of all the blockbuster games in need of a sequel, 2011s Rage has to be near the bottom of the list. The id-developed post-apocalyptic shooter was a stunning technical showcase, but an entirely forgettable game, set in a drab brown world that did little to distinguish itself. Its hard to imagine many came away from the game dying to know what happened next. But alas, here we are, and Rage 2 is a video game you can play right now. Its not an especially original one, either. Its like a grab bag of existing open-world concepts, fused with some excellent Doom-style gunplay and a set in a slightly more colorful take on Mad Max.
That doesnt sound like a recipe for success and yet, strangely, Rage 2 succeeds. What it lacks in originality…
