Gamer Reviews: Rage Reviews

The "Honorable Mentions" have evolved into the Top 1,000! Congrats reviewers.

Rage Reviews

dark_being [7.5 - Good] Rage is a fun first-person shooter, but some gameplay limitations and the various visual bugs mar the experience.
bowlingotter [7.0 good] Rage might not be what we'd hoped, but it's a solid ride. That said, the PC is not the platform to play it on.
nutcrackr [6.5 - Fair] Fails with narrative, variety, replay value and ambition. Technical problems at launch didn't help.

Top 100

-Tomb Raider: Underworld
JustPlainLucas [6.0 - Fair] Lara Croft is beginning to feel as ancient as the relics she hunts for.

Gelugon_baat [8.5 - Great] Galactic Civilizations is the beginning of a surprisingly excellent space-empire-building franchise.
-Garshasp: The Monster Slayer
Domstercool [5.0 - Mediocre] God of War style Persian mythology? I'm up for that, just a shame that Garshasp has too many problems to be good.
-Sideway: New York
asian_pride69 [8.0 - Great] Sideway is a unique, creative take on the platforming genre while managing to still feel familiar.

@Synthia - wait, then who is that woman behind the curtain? and what are all these flying monkeys doing in my office... and this blog is 'rage-ful' :)


@IgotEpixx You wrote a nice review of Dead Rising 2: OTR. Congrats.


@Synthia Thanks again. Congrats to all of the other people mentioned as well. There are a lot of great writers here.


Thanks for the mention, and @Sebadonut, thank you very much!


Oh my, my humble little Harvest Fishing review got mentioned. I'm blushing. Thanks, @Synthia. Also, @Gelugon_baat: Galactic Civilizations was a pretty terrific game for the very fact that it is so elaborate, so good job.


LOL! I had no idea I was mentioned until I actually edited my review a little after noticing a few things I missed. Thanks for the mention. It looks like I will lose the battle though, LOL!


@Synthia That would be a bit pretentious :P Are small reviews aloud? My recent ones are pretty small.

@parkurtommo, did you send me a pm? I'm not the Wizard of Oz ya know :p


I should be in there :x :P after reviewing 3 damn games in a row :x


wow, always amazes me what great writers are hiding here on gamespot. particulary enjoyed the Okami review by stephenage, really well written. oh and I vote for the 360 DR:OTR review


wait, are we voting on which review is better, or which review says which game is better? Either way, I feel like I have to vote XBOX since I have DR2 on XBOX, that makes sense to me :) and thanks for the shout-out :)
