This post isn't singling out Giantbomb, though I do believe they share some guilt. This post is to call out all the reviewers who've lied and said Rage was a great game.
I finally got around to playing Rage, and the game was mediocre at best, along with the technical problems. We already know about how id software screwed PC gamers,
something that should have been factored into the reviews. At least Gamestop did have two separate reviews, the PC one calling out the flaws.
But to the other reviewers kissing id's arse, shame on you.
Shame on you for acting like Rage was something special, when everything from the intelligent gameplay, to the driving, was done better in other games.
Shame on you for giving id a pass for it's horrible technical issues, knowing that most other developers would have been taken to task for it.
Not only is this a basic shooter that rips off Borderlands so much it isn't funny.
The game has one of the worst endings I've ever seen. After a basic mission, the game just ends.
Yet Duke Nukem Forever, which was also mediocre, gets ripped apart by mainstream reviewers?
At least the game didn't have horrible technical issues, and it did have an ending.
Next time be honest about a game and stop kissing the developers arse.
That ends my "cool story... bro".
