We’ve only just received our Rage 2 review code today, so our review is still at least a few days away.
The game is out tomorrow and the embargo has just lifted, so we thought it’d be important to bring you at least a few reviews from around the internet. So far, the game is sitting at a 73 on Metacritic, with reviews still trickling in.
So far, the reviews are a little bit all over the place with some outlets giving the game extremely middling scores, whilst others such as VG247 have said that it’s the best single-player FPS game of the generation.
VG247 said that the game was one of the best FPS games of this generation and continued on by saying: “The interplay between the AI, your abilities, the physics of the world, and your guns is some of the best I’ve seen, and I never thought I would be saying anything like that about a sequel to Brown Shooter: Apocalypse. There’s much more to this than its kooky, pink-hued marketing campaign. If you sleep on it, you’re sleeping on one of the best – if not the best – single-player FPS games of this generation.”
GamesRadar gave the game a 6/10 and said: “Rage 2’s core combat feels so much like Doom in an open world, and it wouldn’t surprise me if that’s exactly what this was – developer id Software testing the waters for such a concept.”
GameInformer gave the game a 7/10 and said: “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.”
