About

RAGE 2 is the second installment in the RAGE series of post-apocalyptic action games. It is inspired by the Mad Max movie series.

Plot and setting

The game is set in 2165, thirty years after the events of the original Rage. More than a century before that, the Apophis asteroid fell on Earth, causing mass destruction and driving humanity to near-extinction. The few remaining people hide in the few safe oases, while the rest of the world is a post-apocalyptic wasteland raided by gangsters and evil mutants. The main protagonist is a man named Walker, who is the last ranger of the wasteland and a wielder of superhuman powers. He fights against the totalitarian organization called The Authority.

Gameplay

Like in the original RAGE, the sequel emphasizes its over-the-top action. The player controls Walker from the first person view and uses his huge guns and other weapons to fight monsters. The protagonist can also drive any vehicle that can be found in the game and engage in vehicular battles. When the player is driving, the game switches to the third person view. A new feature introduced in RAGE 2 is its Overdrive system that encourages aggressive playing style. By killing multiple enemies in a short amount of time, the player can enter Overdrive mode, which increases the guns' power and the amount of loot. There is also a multiplayer mode.

          RAGE 2 reviews and comments

          This is gonna be a weird review because I have to insult the game to get across why I like it.

          It feels like the game has two paragraphs of story for the entire world so you can skip every bit of text in the game and not feel lost. Exploration of a point of interest is literally a checklist so 99% of what you do is "Clear out area>finish objective>find the hidden loot" and since there's like a 100+ locations in the game you're gonna be doing that a lot.

          All that being said: Rage 2 is the perfect podcast game. The actual gunplay is super tight and the powers facilitate rushing into enemies to smash, crash and throw them around. I got so into the mindless grind that I couldn't wait to get home everyday to listen to my favorite podcasts and veg out for 5+hours at a time.

          It sounds kinda mean, but Rage 2 is at its best when you ignore what it's trying to say to you and just play around with the mechanics.
          «Sit back and relax»
          I never stopped wishing Rage 2 was the game the marketing team got to play. They apparently got something colorful, bombastic and action packed. I got a Far Cry in the dessert with pink crates. Serviceable and forgettable.
          2/5
          «Boooring»
          VERY tight and enjoyable gunplay, okay story, and some glaring issues with bugs and the length of the game. There's some unfinished areas of the game that are clearly placeholders for DLC. Overall, I enjoyed it, but I got it on sale.
          Good combat, but really nothing else.
