No, it's not. This game sucks bad.
First - vehicles - a NO GO in shooters! If I want cars, I buy racing games. If I buy an id-game, the f*cking last thing I want is cars! What do vehicles change? They make you drive several minutes between the levels. That's like 'loading screen 2.0'! Stupid, linear driving with no meaning, no point for the game. Just to f-ing drive! W - T - F ?! WHY?!
Then - technic. Okay, even DOOM 2 was great and the graphics suck. But RAGE? It has almost the same features as Half-Life 2, just without physics. Really! Same low polygons, same low textures (for today), only the animations are great. Graphics don't make the game, but id sets trends - usually. This game is an insult to gaming! Just look at the shadows or the fake HDR, for example.
Also: Gameplay! Hey, it's id! id means, run'n'gun, done. Not quests, no semi-open world, no crafting, no items etc.! That might be good ideas in some games, but this is not id!
- all together: RAGE ist made extremely bad in every single aspect. It's a fullfilled bag of crap. And thanks to Steam I can't sell it.
Haven't bought yet? Leave it.

Having said that, it runs well on my box. i5 2500k @4.2ghz, 8gb/ram, 1gb radeon 4870. 1920x1200 with everything maxed/on except AA which I haven't tried.
<3 for the feedback on the game, I was eagerly thinking about purchasing it for the past few days / week(s)
