What were they thinking with the ending? (Spoilers)
I was loving this game up until that point. It put you up against a couple of bosses and some mini-bosses. You'd think there would be something at the end. Hell, how about explain who the fuck even runs the Authority? Is it just one person? Is it maybe a massive computer? Someone or something has to be telling the Authority about the certain Arc causing havoc. But they must have gone in a meeting one day and said, meh fuck all that boss shit, let's just toss in Mutants with guns and call it a day. I stocked up on everything for the battle I was waiting for only to be let down in a BIG way. You should know damn well when the game is about to end. Not go, oh is that it? Well fuck, that sucked.

Who runs teh authority? Well apparently it's this guy. General Martin Cross, otherwise known as the visionary:

Yeah...the ending wasn't that good but I really like the game a lot. It's a keeper for me.

The ending and the fact that you can't continue to play after the end grinded my gears. Good game outside of that though. Liked the Borderlands meets Fallout feeling it had. I rented it when it was released. Gonna buy it eventually and get some of the achievements I missed.

The ending was a complete fail-another similarity to borderlands then(although BL at least had the decency to put you up against a boss)
I was a bit put out by the whole second disc to be honest-the world was smaller, contained about 5 "dungeons" (which were some of the better ones though), fewer job board missions and fewer story missions.

id totally dropped the ball with the last level-for a start one of RAGE's greatest achievements was the quality of its world with no two parts feeling recycled yet here was a series of grey recycled corridors.
It was also ridiculously easy-so easy that I didn't use much of my "fun" ammo e.g.mind-control bolts, BFG rounds, pop-rockets, because I simply assumed things were going to really kick off at any moment and I would then need to use all this stuff.
but having no boss battle to send the game out in style was the biggest kicker-no giant authority mutant?

i never saw the end cos i thought the whole game sucked tbh, stopped playing after about 10 hrs. so the end was just the same as any other mutant battle in the game? that does sound like a let down, glad i didnt bother now! it cant be as big a let down as the end of Fable II, that was a joke!

Well they did have plans for a sequel right? Just not until they got the next Doom finished.

I personally thought the ending was fine. It wasnt the best, but it felt satisfying to me.

falldown3 06-23-2012 03:44 PM

Haha I still think its a great game but as far as the ending goes.... I guess thats why they call it Rage and thats what they wanted everyone to do. Just kidding but its still an overall fun game

lancehardy 06-26-2012 09:15 PM

I just finished this and I went "Oh, that's it?" It was satisfying to see 5 achievements pop up for 200 gs...but that's about it.

SpinelesS 08-15-2012 01:18 AM

Yeah the final mission really sucked, especially after wandering around sewer town and hearing two guys talking about something "really that big?".

I spent all my cash stocking up on BFG ammo, used it once to see what it was like, then planned on saving the rest for the boss battle at the end of the game with what I assumed would be a giant mutant or something. Not that I really used many weapons throughout the whole game except my pistol and my shotgun... (and sniper rifle when forced to do so)

Well the ending is a typical 'iD Software Ending'.

Jobbenar 09-17-2012 03:53 PM

I stopped playing as soon as the achievements popped, so i take it i didnt miss much?

They should go back to Doom-style endings where it's a wall of text.

I would typically agree, but Doom at least had a giant rocket-arm demon to contend with. Rage just had some monkeys with plasma guns. I loved this game, even though I had heard of the terrible ending beforehand. So, having that knowledge, the ending wasn't as big a letdown as for some of these other folks.

My only issue is, even if a sequel is planned, that is no excuse for a complete lack of closure or something big to shoot. You gave me lots of neat toys, and no one to use them on! Unforgivable.

@ Jet1337: They should go back to Doom-style endings where it's a wall of text.

LOL! Can you imagine the posts that would LITERALLY be on fire if they did that? With headings like "Text ending on a next gen game! What is this, ZORK?!?!"

Certtz 12-26-2012 05:02 PM

I hate to say it but it was probably the worst ending of a game that i ever encountered. But i still love the game. I just downloaded the DLC, so i hope it give us a better ending this time around.

I second this. Hell, they need to go back to Doom-style GAMES! Who cares about the general public, it's the true gamers who want to see gaming restored to fast-paced, level-clearing, key-finding, MAYHEM! Come on id, PLEASE I BEG YOU, do this for Doom 4!

I thought the ending video was fine, but having no boss battle was lame, expecially, as someone else mentioned, after hearing a couple authority talking about seeing something big.

Although I guess if you played the Scorchers DLC last you get a bit of a finishing boss, although it's out of place with the rest of the story.

Aceman417 04-15-2013 01:38 AM

I loved this game and was extremely disappointed with the ending. Hell I even saw titles sayi how bad it was yet I thought it couldn't be that bad, but yet it was.
If they make a Rage 2 I will be cautious about buying it.

Maximum Sawfish 06-02-2013 02:35 PM

Maybe that's why the ending so they can start where they left with rage 1 and continue into rage 2?

crazypath yetti 01-03-2015 04:55 PM

Still a great game...
I do agree with many of the sentiments above - the ending was lacking. I actually said "huh?!" when the achievements starting popping. The game as a whole was fantastic, IMO. People are saying Borderlands was better, in which case, I'm probably going to love Borderlands (own the first 2, haven't touched 'em yet). As a few people mentioned, that last level wasn't too bad, and I literally didn't even use the BFG once, fearing that I'd need it against the last boss, which I figured would be Cross. Hopefully, a sequel is actually happening that will make us forget about this thread :)

Necro thread, I was super pissed by the ending they ruined what was a good game that could have been great
