The gamesradar review (linked yesterday) was pretty down on it, saying the open world is devoid of anything to do. They ended with this:
The “Rage 2 roadmap” has already been revealed, showcasing world events and “wasteland challenges” in an effort to follow in the footsteps of successful games like Destiny 2 and The Division 2, but the difference is that this is a single player game. Anyone who purchases this game on launch is undoubtedly expecting a full release, rather than a relatively empty world that will be later populated with content under the guise of the 'Games as a Service' industry trend. There is no reason for so much content to be time-gated. Were everything that is planned to arrive in the coming months, there's a chance that Rage 2 could have felt like a more complete package at launch – a game that has content to complement its excellent weapons and core action. Sadly, that isn't the case and the result is a sequel hasn’t impressed me all that much at all, but it won’t be laid to rest until the roadmap comes to a close for a game many people will have grown bored of.
Ruh-roh. I'll wait for a complete edition down the road somewhere.
Honestly, is anyone really all that surprised at this? Bethesda pulled some pretty shady shit with everyone on the DRM at the last min along with the linked account that is forced in place. Along with Deluxe edition of the game only giving access to the BFG that can not be archived any other way in the game at all.
Bethesda's has reached all new lows with their shady business tactics as of late. I actually refunded the game days before when I found out about the BFG not being in the game. I felt screw Bethesda if they want to treat us like some two bit customers.
So, Ill wait this one out and see it on the deep sale in a year or so.
