The First Rage 2 Reviews Are In And They’re Conflicting

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.

We’ve also got our bargain guide right HERE if you’re looking for the cheapest copy.

Bargain Guide – Rage 2


GameSpot gave the game a 6/10 and said: “The wild, exceptional combat of Rage 2 contends with some of the genre’s greats, but it’s disappointing that the game’s world squanders its potential.”

Destructoid gave the game a 8/10 and said: “I was pleasantly surprised with the shooter chimera that is Rage 2.”

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.”
