Rage review round up–have ID done it?

The worldwide review embargo for Rage must have just dropped because a crop of reviews just appeared all over the Internet.

Unfortunately we weren’t graced with an early review copy so we can’t tell you how good the game really is but from the early review scores I’ve seen it looks like id Software has created quite the impressive shooter.

Though I have to say that I think the sales are going to suffer quite badly, trying to release a shooter in the middle of Gears of War 3, Uncharted 3, Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3 is incredibly brave and while I’d like to think that a new IP will be rewarded by the gaming public I think it’s more likely that this one is going to disappear quite quickly.

EGM – 9.5/10
IGN – 8.5/10
GameReactor – 8/10
VGChartz – 9/10
Telegraph – 3.5/5
Joystiq – 3/5
Eurogamer – 8/10
OXM – 7.5/10

Those are the few I’ve found so far and if we take those and shove them through our highly unscientific calculator we get an average score of 8.2/10 but that’s mainly down to Joystiq’s 60% which sounds incredibly harsh for a solid title.
