I think one of the main issues I had with Rage was that the game world wasn't very compelling. It felt kinda barebones and generic.

In a crowded market FPS games kinda need a hook to standout from the crowd, be it the atmosphere, storytelling, and plasmids of Bioshock, the insanely over-the-top "you are the ultimate killing machine" focus of Doom 2016, the scope and destructible environments of Battlefield, or the grittiness of the pre-PS4 Killzone games.

Rage didn't really have that special something.

I'd say that the world design was a hook for Mad Max fans, it is very similar.

That's actually the reason I bought it myself, I am a Mad Max fan. I dunno, it just didn't have much depth for me. Granted, neither does Doom 2016 but that game succeeded entirely on the strength of its ridiculously satisfying combat loop. If Rage 2 can do the same it might be worth a look, but the first game's combat I found just okay. Enemy behaviours were good but their designs and the weapons were nothing special.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.
