If Doom and Mad Max had been lying in the same bed, the result would have been called RAGE 2.
Spaziogames - Italian - 8.2 / 10
RAGE 2 is a frantic, mad and satisfying fps, with tons of possibilities to play and kill enemies and a very rich endgame.
USgamer - Mike Williams - 4 / 5 stars
In Rage 2, you move fast and kill faster. It's the synthesis between id Software's 2016 reboot of Doom and Avalanche Studios' Mad Max, bringing together some of the best ideas from both. Moment-to-moment play on foot is fantastic with each weapon and ability just opening up your options for destruction. Driving could be improved and it's a little on the shorter side, but Rage 2 is a damned good time.
Destructoid - Chris Carter - 8 / 10
I was pleasantly surprised with the shooter chimera that is Rage 2, which ended up being open world mini-Doom 2016. It's not going to make anyone a believer in shooters or the free roam format, but folks already predisposed to those vices will find plenty to sink their teeth into.
The Games Machine - Simone Rampazzi - Italian - 8 / 10
The collaboration between id Software and Avalanche Studios brought us a nice open-world first person shooter, despite a bunch of issues with the world building and a shallow plot.
IGN - Dan Stapleton - 8 / 10
Rage 2's moment-to-moment combat is outstanding, making it shine among open-world first-person shooters.
IGN Spain - David Soriano - Spanish - 8 / 10
Rage 2 excels as FPS for its agile gunplay mixed with killer skills. It is a pity that the open world, despite the effort to present different biomes, has so little to offer.
Hobby Consolas - Álvaro Alonso - Spanish - 77 / 100
If you're looking for something to blow things up, using super powers and crazy weapons, then you're going to love Rage 2. Just don't look any further, because there's nothing more to see.
IGN Italy - Francesco Destri - Italian - 7.7 / 10
Rage 2 is a pleasure to play if you like to shoot and destroy things, but don't ask for much more in terms of gameplay ... you would be disappointed
Everyeye.it - Francesco Fossetti - Italian - 7.7 / 10
Perhaps the most painful aspect concerns the structure of the campaign. The main missions are interspersed with phases of pure "grinding" in which it is necessary to increase the level of the three allied "factions". If the number of hours needed to complete the story had already seemed low, you should know that the main quest is actually composed of a really unjustifiable number of missions (you don't get to a dozen).
Worth Playing - Cody Medellin - 7.5 / 10
Rage 2 is an engaging game that's hindered by a number of annoyances.
GameSpace - 7.5 / 10
Rage 2 is a great game for the right reasons. If you're looking for a game with a phenomenal story, you're in the wrong place. The story is boring to me, and rather short at 13 hours of leisurely gameplay. At the very least it doesn't drop off the planet like Rage did. Gameplay is fun, and vehicle combat works well, giving you an open world Mad Max-esque experience that is simply enjoyable and hard to put down.
Game Informer - Daniel Tack - 7 / 10
Rage 2 fails to deliver any interesting characters, environments, or activities. Solid shooting and cool weapons lift up the other elements of this title
PCGamesN - Harry Shepherd - 7 / 10
The pace of id and Avalanche's FPS is neutered by a dull open world and thin story but, in an unbridled whirlwind of gruesome gibs, you probably won't care.
Attack of the Fanboy - William Schwartz - 3.5 / 5 stars
As a shooter Rage 2 is incredible. It's everything around that core competency that brings the game down. A lack of narrative, world building, and questionable design decisions in terms of progression leave the experience feeling flat.
SECTOR.sk - Peter Dragula - Slovak - 7 / 10
New Rage from Avalanche Studios is good explosive shooter, but with bounded movement and bald quests.
Gamers Heroes - Blaine Smith - 7 / 10
Rage 2 is a chaotic, fun, and rewarding adventure that combines a light but interesting narrative with explosive combat and a well-structured open world. It won't blow you off your feet, but you'll have plenty of fun blowing everyone else off theirs.
CGMagazine - 6.5 / 10
Rage 2 takes Doom-like gunplay and puts in just another dull open world game that doesn't do anything particularly memorable.
GameSpot - Michael Higham - 6 / 10
The wild, exceptional combat of Rage 2 contends with some of the genre's greats, but it's disappointing that the game's world squanders its potential.
GamesRadar+ - Ford James - 3 / 5 stars
Rage 2 has a fun core gameplay loop, but everything around it falls flat on its face
Shacknews - Josh Hawkins - 5 / 10
For now, Rage 2 feels like the final shrill beep on the ECG before the flatline hits. The last flutter of life the series had to offer, squandered away.

If you sleep on it, you’re sleeping on one of the best – if not the best – single-player FPS games of this generation.
GamesBeat - Mike Minotti - Unscored
I’m not digging Rage 2’s story or setting. But I still have a ways to go before completing it. Maybe the plot will win me over. Maybe the world will do something surprising and evoke something besides Mad Max.
But even if it doesn’t, I still like Rage 2. Artistically, it’s uninspired. But mechanically, it’s one of the best shooters I’ve played in years. Fun wins out.

A fun, engaging world
