** The Scorchers DLC adds in the Jackpots casino, a smaller hub for the missions thereof, which naturally holds a roulette wheel and a poker machine. If you're any good at poker (or any good at SaveScumming), you can easily max out your money and buy all the things you want from the vendors, and just spam explosive weapons without fear of losing the loot drops.

* HarsherInHindsight - One of the reasons why King pulled it out of print.

* HarsherInHindsight - One School shootings happening in real life was one of the reasons why King pulled it out of print.print. He would later say that if ''Rage'' was published in later years, it would be certain that someone would describe him as "mentally ill."

Added DiffLines:

** The "Gotta Have Em' All" achivement is also a major pain to even attempt. To unlock it the player has to find every single trading card in the game all in one playthrough. These cards are almost always extremely well hidden in the enviroment or stashed off in a (possibly locked, hope you brought lots of lock grinders) supply room that the player is likely to miss. As frustrating as this would be on its own several cards become LostForever if not picked up during the one chance the player has to pass through the area. Needless to say, getting this achivement without a guide or walkthrough of some sort is borderline impossible.

Added DiffLines:

* DemonicSpiders: Several of them:
** The big heavily armored minigun guys that begin appearing about half way through the game. Rarely do they appear completely alone and may even show up in pairs alongside the normal enemies.
** The Jackal clan sniper enemies. They shoot highly damaging rockets or fireballs at the player while their berserker buddies rush them with a barrage of melee attacks. On the higher difficulties these attacks can easily kill the player in just 2 hits by themselves!
** The Authority mutants that (thankfully) only appear in the last level. They combine everything bad about a club mutant (see below) with decent armor and a powerful plasma cannon attack. Best hold down the trigger on that Authority Pulse Cannon if you hope to survive...


Added DiffLines:

* GoddamnBats: The basic club mutants. They have low health, no ranged attacks, and no special powers, but are extremely fast, agile, and most often attack in large groups.

Added DiffLines:

* AnticlimaxBoss: One of the most recurring reviewer complaints. By the time the player has reached Capitol Prime, they've fought a towering mutant colossus, which has been clearly modified by Authority tech. For added difficulty, it is only vulnerable to the rocket launcher at certain times. And for the final battle... [[spoiler:the player fights several waves of regular sized mutants, who have been clearly modified by Authority tech but easily dispatched by Sentries, Turrets, or the InfinityPlusOneSword / EleventhHourSuperpower that is the [[GatlingGood Authority Pulse Cannon]].]]

* PortingDisaster: The {{Xbox 360}} version had serious issues due mainly to the game's size: it had to be broken up over multiple discs and stripped down. Many fans are convinced ''RAGE'' would have been better-received had it gone with a PC exclusive, or at the very least skipped the Xbox.

*** Scary part? In the backstory, while the odds of impact were rising higher and higher, the government was lying like a bastard 24/7, insisting that they were ''decreasing''. It's quite likely that if it happened IRL, '''that's exactly what the government would do.'''

*** Wow, [[SarcasmMode that makes me feel so much better]].

* SidetrackedByTheGoldSaucer: There are a wide variety of betting minigames and other distractions the player can engage in. Even worse, several achivements are tied to them and [[LuckBasedMission rely heavily on random chance to unlock.]] Hope you weren't doing anything important when you noticed the the new settlement you're visiting has a game you haven't tried yet...

* ThatOneAchievement: "JACKPOT!", one of the aformentioned luck-based achievements. It requires scoring four kills on your first roll at Tombstone, so start SaveScumming because the odds of getting four kills in one roll are 1 in 16.
