    It's kinda like Watch Dogs 1 -> Watch Dogs 2.
    Brown, drab and a bit boring becomes pink, colorful and quirky.

    I was so impressed by Rage 1 back then I even uploaded a video on it.



    I am sure Rage 2 will be just as good!

    I already forgot how bad the punching animation was. It's like you're playing as Ronda Rousey

    Original RAGE gave you the impression that it had pretty big maps.

    I enjoyed it, finished it like 3 times. A lot of action reminded me of Quake 2.. only slower.

    The thing is, game was still trying to give a proper SP experience with story and all. It fucked up the ending, but at least it tried. I have NO reason to believe that Just Cause developers are capable of that. Every game from them is a shitty open world game where story or SP presentation is an afterthought while the action gets stale in an hour or so (Just Cause is a great example of everything wrong).

    Maybe they'll surprise us with Rage 2. Though I bet Bethesda just saw another "open world" IP they can exploit and turn into another fucking Fallout, while they rape Fallout themselves.

    That's certainly one way of looking at it.

    What. RAGE had the worst, most fake open world I´ve ever seen. They made a straightforward shooter and then went "Oooh, look at the open world fad, we need to include that!"

    And then they added corridors for you to drive through inbetween story missions. All the missions are linear and locked off, there is nothing to do between them other than to.. drive through the fucking corridor.

    It´s the sickest thing ever. Rage 2 will be better by default because it simply can´t get any worse than that.

    Have you ever played an id Software game before? They are all corridor shooters taking place in small linear environments. Were you expecting them to make next Fallout?

    Also, I said in the same post you quoted that the game gives the impression of being open world, but it isn't. That didn't stop it from being a fun SP game.

    And how is that a good thing? My issue is that instead of focusing all their resources into making a good shooter they instead wasted time trying to fool the Fallout 3 / Borderlands audience into buying their garbage.

    RAGE was already a good shooter, better than the shit like Borderlands. Combat is fun, enemies react to the damage and the action on-foot keeps you on toes (plus there are different tools to cause chaos).

    My only complaint was that they shoehorned that racing crap into it because with the setting, they were aiming for Mad Max. They didn't expect autist Fallout lovers to show up drooling and whining at their gates instead.

    Looking at the game....must say that the exploration will be important for this game. The combat looks like it could become boring fast . If the game lacks decent writing and good exploration,it will become tedious.

    That looks terrible.

    The best part is, enemies can easily be tracked and killed by a gamepad user. Now imagine the same enemy against a mouse. Hell, in most areas enemies are a few meters away from you but still have full running cycle to get even closer to you so you can use your shotgun.

    "This game is fun." Yeah, translation: "Dumbed down to have shooting galleries and FUN explosions in every corner."

    To whom it may concern - that "match made in heaven " psychopathy facilitator will be compared to Cyberpunk'77 relentlessly then trashed subsequently, I'd guess.

    This looks pretty good. Still not a fan of left-hand-superpowers and I feel weird about an id-related game not running on any id-tech, but I'm interested.

    I find it endlessly hilarious that someone out there would think in a post apoc wasteland, there would be roving gangs of butch dikes. It's just completely mind boggling.
