Better than I thought it would get judging from the various comments I've seen about it.

Given the technical issues on the PC side I expected a lower score. But I suppose once they all get patched out this will be pretty agreeable.

Looks like Rage has inherited the texture popup from Fallout 3/NV :/
Still, I'll be buying ther game once I get a digital distributor who isn't charging $90US for the damned thing, and once I have some spare cash.

Not seen a game get such varied reviews for a while. While a lot of reviewers think it's rubbish an equal amount think it's good.

Is there a demo to play so I can find out for myself which group I fall into?

I was really looking forward to this, but I wouldn't touch it with with a bargepole until all the issues have been sorted out, it's a VERY poor bug ridden PC release, probably rushed out to beat BF3, and imho, it does Bethesda no favours at all it the PC market , not that , that will bother them in the least.

And this is why I always wait a bit and buy during a sale - lower price, DLC usually included free, and all the bugs have been ironed out. I've never understood the "got to get it on day 1" mentality - chances usually are that I've got too much work to do during that time!

Looks like a fun game, but like others have said it would be better to wait a while before buying .
