September 27, 2011 saw the release of FIFA 12 (which had a few issues), and the next big game to hit the market will be Rage, which will be released on October 4. We cannot help but point out that this is the date that Apple will be holding their iPhone event — let’s not get into the whole debate of what the new handset will be called. Anyway, back to Rage; the first review for the game is imminent.
The jury is still out on the game, but we should know the verdict very soon, so for now we ask what your expectations are for the new game from iD Software. The game has been a long time in the making, a little like Diablo III in that respect, so has the wait been worth it? The game needs to deliver, as it is up against some tough releases.
The likes of N4G, CVG etc cannot wait to give you their full reviews, so we thought you might want to learn what we can expect from the game with a video that we have embedded for you below. The game was on show at Eurogamer, but sadly we never got a chance to play with it — damn those long queues. iD has taken a huge risk with Rage, as they have not only developed a new franchise, but also a new engine while they were at it — you have to love the risk.
We have heard from some readers that Rage lacks weapons, which means that the game could be boring due to limited firepower. The other burning question that needs answering in the soon to come reviews are the differences between the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions?
