Yesterday we received our review copy of Rage. Needless to say I was excited to insert this bad-boy into my PS3 and begin exploring the universe of Rage. It didn’t take long before that excitement turned to horror. Rage has serious texture streaming issues on all platforms.
Texture streaming is a pretty common occurrence these days, however most of the time it’s nothing more than a second or two. With Rage the textures never fully load. Every time you look at an object and then look away it has to re-stream all over again. This ends up killing the experience, since one of the selling points of Rage is its varied environments.
Even now the official Rage forums are being littered with complaints from users.

We’ve also included some visual proof below. Despite the PC crowd being the most vocal this particular issue is persistent across all platforms.
Bethesda and id need to come out and formally address the problem.
