Rage is the first new franchise created by id Software since… 1996! They surely needed a lot of time to get at least a bit creative. The production of this brand new action game was directed by John Carmack, a co-producer of popular series like Doom and Quake. The world of Rage seems to have been inspired by movies like MadMax. The universe is post-apocalyptic, visibly destroyed and in ruins.
Earth has been heavily and, unfortunately, negatively influenced by an asteroid that crashed on it. Now, the carefully selected humans live in the Ark, a special shelter which let the lucky few survive the calamity. The main character is forced to leave the Ark and survive on the outside. He quickly meets and befriends other ragged people who managed to endure. He has to start the fight for a better future, facing terrible mutants, ruthless bandits and a military regime. Though shooting is the most important part of the game, RAGE is not a typical first person perspective shooter. The vehicle belonging to the hero is as important as the battles. The car has to be modified and adapted to traveling through the destroyed, dry and empty land. It is our main means of transports and the most important property.
Thorough the course of the game we encounter up to four vehicles like that, each having different statistics and varying in the number of slots for weapons. They let us quickly move from place to place and take part in races. RAGE pretends to be a sandbox, but does not do it too well. The gameplay is divided into a series on short, simple missions. RAGE also has a system of crafting which lets the player create useful gadgets thanks to the schemes found along the way. The game has two poorly realized multiplayer modes: Fury, a death match played in vehicles, and a set of missions projected to be play by two players.
