If you've yet to check out id Software's latest foray into the genre it created, then you'll be wanting to download the Rage demo, which has released today on the Xbox Live Marketplace.

Featuring the town of Wellspring to explore, you can engage in a mission to prevent the murderous Ghost Clan from contaminating the waterworks and poisoning the residents of the Wasteland. You'll also be able to race on the Speedway and try out some mini-games.

You can snap up the Rage demo now from the Xbox Live Marketplace and you can add it to your download queue here.

Nice. I've been on the fence with this one. The demo may finally push me over the edge.

That's cool. Already played and beat Rage, but if you haven't checked it out yet, go for it. That mission is pretty cool, and should give you a pretty good idea of what the game is like.

It's one of the games that is 20-30 bucks for the Holidays, might as well give it a try to see if I want it now or I can wait awhile till it dives under 19.99.

Bought this last week new for £25, well worth the money.
Only problem with it was the ending was kind of pants, otherwise a great game.

This is a good game, very basic gameplay mechanics, and the graphics are pretending to be great, (when you check them out up close you can see its not so detailed and actually just 1 complete texture), they done a good job masking it as it still looks great, and its just nice to play through this. I started on nightmare and its really not that hard to finish the game. But when i finished it, i sold it already as there isnt much to come back for.

this game is remarkably basic with decent animations and graphics, but thats it. you all may do better just waiting for a drop to 20$ or lower as this game likely wont hold your attention over much better games currently out.

@13 I'm going to agree with you. I almost purchased this when it came out, but after playing the demo, I gotta tell ya - it wasn't very impressive. I would maybe pay $20. Guess I was expecting more from id software.

Didn't like this game at all. It's a mid-tier game with pretty graphics, that's pretty much it. Basically a corridor shooter, the only time you can casually fight enemies is the Mutant Bash TV and that's only good for 2-3 runs before it gets old. Borderlands is superior on every level. If you've got money burning a hole in your pocket, get that instead.

It's pretty good, the visuals are pretty inconsistent... The landscape looks amazing in most areas but indoors its very smudged and blurry. Gameplay is alright and the sound design kind of annoys me.. Haven't beaten it yet, the game just hasn't sucked me in.. Bought it at launch too.

To Little - To Late...

Rage is now in Bargain Buckets all across the country.. The game is not terrible but Epic Fail from IDSoft if they think this late demo will turn things around..

That doesn't make any sense to me.

Who'd still bother about Rage now that there's a ton of AAA games being released.

@26 makes sense to me cause all i see is non original games coming out and here one that is. Gear 3, batman 2, BF 3, Cod 8, Elder scrolls 5, AC 4, halo
remake, saints 3,

at least there are still games that can stand out against all these game giants.
