    For such a hyped game and glitchiness aside, this game is mediocre at best. I'm honestly not surprised, ID really haven't done anything good since Doom 3.. and I really didn't think that game was all that great either. I have no idea why I bought Rage. :ohwell:

    You are right about the DOOM3 part, what is it that id makes for good press? I wouldnt compare it to DNF, but RAGE took an awful time to develop and got major hypes, i expected a game of the games. I guess there is still Skyrim to hope for.

    I think that ID needs to step away from the ''first person shooter with pretty graphics'' routine and branch out a little for a bit. I feel as though Rage just adds itself to the stack with BF3, Metro, Crysis etc. We have pretty FPS games on the horizon and some already here, and
    I'm having some fun with Rage, but it isn't anything worth the hype it garnered.

    You like flickering graphics, slow loading textures and crazy artifacts? The John Carmack love boat is sinking quickly my friend.

    I reinstalled Doom 3 this morning. I never finished it.

    I'll wait on Rage.

    You're trollin' hard today. :p

    Anyways, I don't. Right now he's no better than American McGee. I'd rather play Bad Day LA than this trash right now and that's saying something.

    lol, I wouldn't go that far.

    Try the new Beta drivers considering AMD drivers/cards have been having an issue with the game.

    I am pretty upset too. I paid $60.00 and I can't even play the game to it's full extent. It shouldnt be released if it is going to have issues like this from the start. If and when it gets fixed I will forget about it and hope Carmack doesnt have another hiccup like this with doom 4, As for the trolling, It's a hard knock life doing what I do :p

    If it runs good on the console then its fine. Like I said this game was never meant for PC. Sad........very sad.

    That's another thing. Why in the heck would AMD release a beta driver that has a very old open gl on it? Their driver team is really off the ball lately.

    I really hope we get some texture improvements too. The way the textures look and considering how many gb's this game is, it's really mind boggling.

    I thought the Graphics looked really good, IMO. (minus the texture lag and pop in)

    You gotta understand something about TPU. None of its members have a broken computer or install. Its ALWAYS the games,driver,developer, or sleestak's fault.

    Lol. Your man-crush on Carmack has no bounds does it? Really though, I would expect this type of response from someone who runs slow RAM with loose timings on an AMD setup. :p If they only made a console for graphic artists. :ohwell:

    Absolutely not.

    I have to say though I love the way the game looks.. Textures and glitches aside.

    Its got an average of 85%. So its really a coin toss from what I know.

    A patch will fix all the issues with time. I'm trying not to judge it until we get some sort of response from ID/AMD on these issues with Textures, Pop-Ins, Artifacts ETC. I really want to get into the gameplay however I can't until they fix this.
