Rage is a first-person shooter video game by id Software released on October 4, 2011. The game takes place in a post-apocalyptic world and similar to Fallout. The game is set in the near future following the impact of the asteroid 99942 Apophis.
Here are some eviews of the game.
IGN (85/100): The great controls and useful weapon upgrades help make Rage’s shooting parts a lot of fun, but the storyline fails to create any real tension and the game’s characters, friendly and hostile, never do or say anything memorable.
Gamespot (80/100): Rage is a beautiful game that looks equally stunning with or without the hefty installation (which reduces the load times and is optional on the 360 but required on the PS3), so regardless of which platform you play on, you’ll find a rich and rewarding adventure that sets a new visual standard for the postapocalyptic wasteland.
1UP (75/100): It’s nothing revolutionary. It comes from a different kind of Id, one that would rather play with existing conventions than reinvent them. Conversely, it’s the same Id that puts look and feel on the same high pillar, and it’s impossible to call Rage badly-composed. I just don’t think it’s going to be remembered as anything but a sleeper hit of the fall of 2011.

Bethesda Softworks Fallout 3 has finally been approved by Australian Censors and the game received a MA15+ rating. So what are the changes? All references to real drugs like morphine in the game have been changed to fictional names like Red-X, Psycho and Ultrajet.
Videogamer has interviewed Pete Hines from Bethesda and he has quoted that Fallout 3 is a better game than The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. Pete said, I don’t have any doubts that on the whole, and I think this is a belief universally shared on the team that Fallout is a better game. But we’re also not oblivious to the fact that we have a lot of extra baggage that we’re carrying, being the guys picking up this franchise, that are re-imagining this series from 10 years ago, and there’s something that comes along with that. We’re very well aware of what we’re up against.
