RAGE Free Weekend

Steam News announces a free weekend is underway for RAGE, id Software's game of shooting and driving:

Play RAGE for FREE starting now through Sunday at 1PM Pacific Time. You can also pickup RAGE at 75% off the regular price!*

RAGE is a groundbreaking first-person shooter set in the not-too-distant future after an asteroid impacts Earth, leaving a ravaged world behind. You emerge into this vast wasteland to discover humanity working to rebuild itself against such forces as bandit gangs, mutants, and the Authority – an oppressive government regime that has a special interest in you in particular. Featuring intense first-person shooter action, breakneck vehicle combat, an expansive world to explore and jaw-dropping graphics powered by id’s revolutionary id Tech® 5 technology, RAGE promises an experience like no other.

Fearing a planet-wide extinction from a massive asteroid headed towards Earth, world leaders are faced with the inexorable task of ensuring human survival. Left with few alternatives, life-sustaining pods filled with select people are buried deep beneath the earth’s surface. You are one of the chosen members of these modern day arks and abruptly enter the RAGE universe after surfacing alone. Leaving you to your own devices to stay alive in a world filled with those who prefer you dead, RAGE combines powerful storytelling with heart-pounding action.

RAGE was a trainwreck.

Graphically it was a clusterfuck, with some decent scenes but others employing pathetically low quality sprites and items with one-tenth the polygon detail expected of a modern game - the texture quality was shockingly bad.

Gameplay wise the shooting side of things was well done but the AI was really weak, the level design obscenely linear (worse than COD), the story an insult and the driving sections were tedious. The ending was missing altogether and it was clear that there was originally going to be a boss fight but they decided to cut it. What's the point of giving you the BFG and then end the game before you have any enemies to use it against? The first time I completed the game I hadn't even fired a shot as I was saving my ammo for the boss.

Then there were all the technical issues, texture pop-in, performance issues, crashes, etc.

I didn't particularly rate Doom 3 but at least it was a competent game. RAGE was simply bad.
