Bethesda has been claiming that Rage will revolutionize the first person shooter genre. While we didn’t get a chance to have some hands on time with it, we still got to see a demo of actual gameplay footage. While it looks amazing, I don’t see anything that will revolutionize the genre. It looks like a solid, fun shooter; however, there was nothing that I saw that will change the FPS genre. The graphics are fantastic, even if it is in a post apocalyptic setting. What I did find pretty cool were the few weapons that we got to see in action. It looks like there will be a wide variety of weapons. One such weapon was a futuristic crossbow type weapon that shoots a variety of bolts, from electric bolts to bolts mind controlling bolts that allows you to take control of your enemy. Overall, I’m still looking forward to Rage. Even though it didn’t look like it will be revolutionary, it still looks like a damn fun game to play.
