I hate how im on the fence, if I didn't read people slagging the game off I would have got this day one. I still am just tempted to buy it tonight, im not fussed if the story isn't as good as half life 2, just want a nice feeling shooter with a bit of a story.
Just get it, the best game of the year for me so far, and I doubt Skyrim will beat it for me... And not because "It looks good" or teh' weapons are cool... (well the absolutely are, but you get the point) The game play... The overall design of the game is seriously near PERFECT. From the soft start, letting you get a hold of the controls, the setting, getting the feel of the environment and your enemies, and then once you have enough gear and weapons it throws you into the deepest, darkest, most hellish places with **** to blow up and enemies to slay with your weapon of choice (whether its steel tipped crossbow bolts, to your decked out, ghetto, scavenged, absolute "str8t pwn4ge", assault rifle, or... my favorite... the combat shotgun/wingblade combo).
It leads you in, one mission at a time from the main story and it kind of brings you along to your major upgrades, and major unlocks, and then their is countless small games within the game (racing, 5-fingers-of-death, the collectable card game which is pretty sweet, and some more racing.), exploring, bandit killing on the wastelands in your decked out vehicle, and "the job board(s)". It gives you unlocks at the perfect times throughout the story line to keep you gripped and hooked throughout the game and there is DEFINITELY not a dull moment! From dark alleyways, to bright open wasteland, their is a suprise in every corner.
Great game! And I DEFINITELY reccommend it to anyone, despite to everyone hating on it because of bugs... I cant believe small bugs like slight screen tear and minor texture popping "if you scroll too fast", really almost killed this game... It is a shame, because overall, the game was very well developed and the developing studio spent a lot of time and put a lot of effort into making it such a great game (and i say this as a fellow game developer), they really put their all into this game (yes there shouldnt be bugs like there is now, but it happens, deal with it... BFBC2 wasnt this polished when it first came out.. neither was BF2, or TF2, or WoW), but with some patches, it will be a game to remember 2011 by.
Happy hunting! I always love looking for the next game to dive into, and RAGE, was an excellent choice for me, so I thought I would spread the word
