Rage 2 is trying to tempt us into its wasteland with a dash of Borderlands, a smidge of Bulletstorm, and a light peppering of Crysis. This is the first look at the game that's really made me want to try it. It's always fun to mess with NPCs' gravity, and I'm glad to see the homing wingstick return—the best Rage weapon as far as I remember.

It doesn't feel like there's a huge amount of excitement out there for Rage 2, we didn't know how good the Doom reboot was until we got some extended time with those magnificent guns. Phil tried the game earlier this year and enjoyed the shooting, even if the world felt a bit lacking (opens in new tab).

Rage 2 is out on May 14, and it might end up being a good 'play while you wait' game for Borderlands fans. For a longer look here's some extended action (opens in new tab) featuring the BFG weapon. There will also, for some reason, be Danny Dyer commentary (opens in new tab) by way of a voice pack cheat you can pick up in-game. Find out more in our everything we know about Rage 2 piece.
