Rage was a fantastic game. From the very first videos the developers published long before the release, I was hooked. And, contrary to many other people, I also enjoyed the actual game when it came out.
Never had technical issues, so I can't comment on that, but at least the gameplay was immense fun and I don't understand why so many people disliked that. The gunplay is really, really smooth and in combination with all your gadgets you had lots of different possibilites to take out your enemies. The occasional racing parts provided some more variety and then there are also all the other minigames, the hidden collectibles and rooms (Doom, Quake, Wolfensteid, id) or even the field goals (I even spent an hour or so in order to score at all of them).
My favorite missions were Dead City (Reverse) which had a great atmosphere as well as both sneaky and action-packed sections (including one damn huge boss) and the very last one. The ending was a bit sudden, but the way to the final fight was awesome. I switched to my best weapons and best ammunition, crafted as many sentry bots as I could and just caused huge chaos in the Authority's main base. :P
The only real point of criticism would be the difficulty: it's too easy. However, the co-op missions on Nightmare are indeed a good challenge and playing with a friend is always better, anyway. Too bad that the multiplayer was pretty much dead since the beginning.
Really looking forward to some more trouble in the Wasteland. Given the financial failure of Rage, I didn't think the long announced DLC would ever be released, but apparently here it is. :P

I agree, I was hooked with the early videos too. The detail was beautiful and the run and gun looked totally epic. I pre-ordered this the second I could. I was only bummed because the US didn't get a collectors edition pre-order!

What system did you play Rage on? I started on PS3 and moved to PC, that was a good idea, its a better time.

I'm a PC gamer, too. In this case, however, for some reason I also started on the console (Xbox 360), but later got a PC copy so I can have it on Steam and play again. Luckily, they still had some Anarchy Editions left, although I considered the Collector's Edition as well. Why didn't you have that in the US?

I don't know, I just never saw where you could buy it. Something to do with different markets I guess? Maybe people in the UK buy the collectors edition more often? :D

I buy the collectors of games I love typically, like most Blizz games save WoW.
