I'm playing Rage right now, and it's much better game than you'd think, considering its lukewarm reception. It's kind of like Fallout-lite, in that it has crafting and an inventory as well as a similar post-apocalyptic setting. The shooting's superb as well, although I haven't really done much racing. I understand why the game doesn't get a lot of love, however. From a distance, the graphics are amazing, and sometimes look like concept art. Up close is a different story. The textures are of a very poor quality and look typical of a five-year old console game. I'm not a graphics snob, but such ugliness from ID is rather ironic, considering how much of their reputation was built on their highly-technical engines. I think Rage is the only game I've ever played that has had such a disparity. But anyway, it's a good game, and I'd rather see a sequel to Rage than another Doom/Quake game (although a sequel to Quake 3 would be awesome).
