Our top pick of the week starting May 13?

Rage 2

The original Rage wasn’t anything to write home about. It was a middling entry with never really actualised potential. Entering the post apocalyptic party with a muddy pallet wasn’t a fresh take.

Fast forward to today and with the creators of the FPS genre, iD Software, with the return to form Doom reboot under their belt have teamed with Avalanche to bring us, hopefully, a fast paced action packed shooter in what looks to be a bright and vibrant world.
