I was thinking of getting this but ARS slammed it pretty hard. I think i'll wait for more reputable reviews before going for it.

So does this mean its like Doom 3 with mostly visuals but just "okay" gameplay?
I remember way back, Far Cry, Doom 3 and Half Life 2 came out all in the same year, i enjoyed HL2 and FC more than D3.

But i guess ill wait for more reviews/player reviews.

So far the graphics are really good. At least by my standards.
But there is some sketchy streaming texture pop-in. Might need to install it to SSD to see if that helps, or get a second HDD for raid 0.
Or, my computer might just be too weak for the auto detected settings. Will play more and check this thread later.

This is kinda like Doom 3 all over again. Great looking game, but my computer is barely powerful enough to play it. Looks like we need some Bulldozer/FX reviews so I can upgrade.
I think my video card pushed my system up a little higher than it should be for the auto-detection. I'm getting 20-30 FPS MAX anywhere. Or it could be a hard 30 FPS cap from the consoles left in.

EDIT -- added some impressions -- Don't read if you don't like spoilers.

Decent cinematic intro.
Game is pretty fun so far. Not very far in but it seems like a decent FPS.
The Doomguy bobblehead in the car ride was a good laugh.
Liked the reference to Mad max with the boomerang type weapon.
The ATV is pretty straight forward and kinda fun.
The graphics seem pretty killer so far, minus the texture pop-in.
There's only so many ways you can do a post apocalyptic game world, so I can see how some people are comparing it to Fallout and borderlands.
Gonna get back to the game, barely just started so this is a work in progress.

Going back to 11.8 Cat's resolved most of my issues. Texture flickering, screen tear and artifacts are all but gone. The slow loading textures are still there, but that's gotta be game engine related...if a PS3 and XBox360 can do this game, surely most if not all of our pc's can as well? I'm sure day 1 patch is in order...hopefully announced soon.

At least now the game is playable...annoying still, but playable. The shooting is def. ID style, feels good, every shot feels powerful.

So.. I just watched this clip : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cd-LPHZcLNQ

This game is basically 99% Borderlands then?

Just sort of EXACTLY CARBON COPIED by ID? And possibly improved?

I'm not complaining, I LOVED borderlands, and another borderlands game would be awesome, but "A NEW game by ID" ? COME THE FORK ON PPL - Just say "An exiting new game based ENTIRELY on borderlands!!"

This game was in development prior to Borderlands, trust me, Ruski'll getcha updated there. :D

No they are vastly different though, BL is more RPG this is more FPS that mixes in just a little bit of RPG in comparison. The two feel way different movement-wise too, BL feels slower...Rage feels fast but smooth.

There's only so many things you can do with a post apocalyptic game. And I believe Rage was in production before Borderlands.

Someone should test this game on a SSD and see if that alleviates the texture pop-in. issue.

EDIT

My machine seems kinda underpowered for RAGE, but I'm gonna take a few minutes, re-arrange some drive contents, and put it on my SSD.

reading artechnica's review, minor texture popup seems to be present on the xbox 360 as well.

I must be weird - Borderlands also had a lot of texture "Pop In" and I kinda enjoyed it.

As you entered a level all the shadows & gfx & stuff kinda sprung up in front of you - I'd personally far rather get to the level faster, and see the stuff load in front of me, than have to wait longer in "loading" screens.

EDIT : Although that was only JUST as you entered the game - it seems in RAGE it happens continuously to some ppl? That WOULD get annoying I guess...

Unreal 3.0 based games seems to have these texture popup from time to time, looks like ID tech 5 also has it?

Was hopin Rage to be similar to S.T.A.L.K.E.R. tho >_>
one of my favorite FPS series.

I'm getting glitchy graphics and the textures are a bit slow, but only when I'm turning quickly and it's only on the edge of the screen that I notice it. I have the game installed on some drives in Raid 0.

I tried the "Rage" drivers and it made it 10 times worse. I'm going back to 11.8 as we speak. The slow loading textures are very annoying. I hope they fix this asap, It is constant.

Just loaded steam and copied RAGE over to my X25-M. Still have the pop-in, but the game feels snappier. That could just be all the salt from these pretzels shrinking my brain though :D

We might need someone with RAID 0 SSD or sata 6 SSDs to test this out, or even a beastly HDD RAID 0 setup.

I like killing the zombie hillbilly ninjas with the wingsticks. That's pretty cool.

7200.12 drives are still pretty good these days. Looks like id is going to have to drop a patch with some tweaks.

Game is pretty fun so far. Gunplay is decent, the wingstick is hilarious. Like the enemy animations and movement.

I don't think having this thing on my SSD is going to make that big a difference. Not like it does in the games I usually keep on it. Switching back over to single drive 7200.12 1tb steam drive.

EDIT
I stand corrected. Going back to a single HDD I noticed the texture stream in took a little longer and the game wasn't as smooth while moving about the world.

This game might just need very fast transfer speeds to stream in the textures.

I believe they both started production around the sametime. Both of them had initially been revealed in 2007.

Sorry about that, went back and edited that comment.

No, id didn't say they are releasing a patch yet. I meant to write
"Looks like id is going to have to drop a patch with some tweaks."

I preordered from Amazon a few months ago, and get my copy tomorrow morning I hope, I have my day off, so it'll be Rage day for me as well :)

I just read the review at Ars Technica, and the guy who posted it really hated the game, sounds to me like he had never played a id game before, ripping Rage for its lack of coherent story and other things... Regardless, it's been a long wait for this game, and I totally stoked for it :)

I preordered from Amazon a few months ago, and get my copy tomorrow morning I hope, I have my day off, so it'll be Rage day for me as well :)

I just read the review at Ars Technica, and the guy who posted it really hated the game, sounds to me like he had never played a id game before, ripping Rage for its lack of coherent story and other things... Regardless, it's been a long wait for this game, and I totally stoked for it :)

What did you really expect from an id tech demo? It's Doom III pretending to be Fallout 3. There, I said it. It's Doom III all over again.
BTW, in the year that Doom III came out, Riddick was massively more enjoyable.

My point precisely, it's not like Doom are Quake are known for being master pieces of story telling, you have to have realistic expectations, me, I'm just happy the game is finally out ;)

Riddick brings back such good memories, awesome game :rockout:
