    Mad Max the game isn’t only a fantastic time, it’s a great addition to the franchise, and one of the few games that completely destroys the expectations that a movie based game has to be bad.

    Like the movie, Mad Max is the perfect summer time romp and should surely wet your appetite before the true Road Warrior inspired game releases later this fall, Fallout 4.

    Mad Max might be formed from familiar parts of other games, but the car-wrecking, skull-cracking chaos it creates is a rewarding and expansive adventure.

    Mad Max may be a bit of a mixed bag, but the faithful recreation of the film universe, the ridiculous car combat, and loads of content will keep players coming back to the desert for a long time.

    There’s a lot here – a lot of scrap to collect and cars to push off the side of the road – but nothing gluing it all together. [December 2015, p75]

    As you wander the desert on the lookout for pieces of scrap, your enjoyment will feel like it's on a downward trajectory the longer that you play. As a result, you'll try to spend as much time as you can racing across its beautifully realised wasteland, while avoiding anything that pulls you from behind the wheel.

    When it comes to simply chewing through yet another open world game, Mad Max does suffice. It’s a substandard but largely competent “AAA” game in a sea full of them, and those who do value the idea of content above all else will find more than their money’s worth here...There’s simply no reason to pick it up, however, if you’ve yet to try The Witcher 3, Shadow of Mordor or Batman: Arkham City. There are tons of better games that go for what Mad Max went for and do so in a superior manner.

    i haven't enjoyed a game this much since Dying Light. It's the kind of world I want to do everything in! I dropped playing Metal Gear Solidi haven't enjoyed a game this much since Dying Light. It's the kind of world I want to do everything in! I dropped playing Metal Gear Solid to play this, and at first It took a little while to get into (coming from an 80 Million dollar game to this), but once you get used to the difference in movement / controls and start unlocking things you won't be disappointed. My game of the year so far. Fun factor through the roof! Expand

    Apocalypse WOW!
    I've always been a big fan of this genre ever since Car Wars and Auto Duel. Avalanche and WBIE have created an absolutely fantastic game that has done the Mad Max franchise proud!
    Shame on you Polygon and Gamespot! (and the smaller guys who jumped on the bandwagon as well!)
    Mad Max has been a complete joy to play! The graphics are awesome, the gameplay superb, and the carnage is delicious! Love Love LOVE this game! 10/10!

    I felt compelled to write a quick review after looking at some of the artificially low Critic scores, I was fortunate enough to get the gameI felt compelled to write a quick review after looking at some of the artificially low Critic scores, I was fortunate enough to get the game early because of the bank holiday. Mad max is the most fun I've had in years on a single player game, there's a ton of things to do in each zone the game world is pretty big, the graphics are good and the game runs smooth and not had a single crash or glitch in over 50 hours play. Brutal sandstorms can hit shredding enemies and throwing max around, optional side quests to complete, story missions, death races, brutal fights this game has it all. Do yourself a favour pick it up you will enjoy it if you actually like playing games. Expand

There are some glitches, getting around as Max on the ground could use some work, and it can be a bit repetative, but I gauge the value of a game by how it compels me to come back to it, and this one has me coming back consistently to get just a little bit farther, a little bit better, a little bit stronger. The story is a bit thin, but the characters are interesting and the narrative had just enough hook to pull me along. The environment design and graphics are excellent. Just a blast to play. Expand

    Not groundbreaking nor time-eating, but entertaining fun just like the latest cinema piece.

    Overly dramatic at some points, but still doesn't take away from how fun the open-world action is. The average player may get very distractedOverly dramatic at some points, but still doesn't take away from how fun the open-world action is. The average player may get very distracted from the story considering how much driving their is, but the weapons bring you right back in. Childish fun, but definitely recommended. Expand

    WTF did I just play? That's how I felt about my journey with this AAA title. The narrative leaves a lot to be desired but in this day ofWTF did I just play? That's how I felt about my journey with this AAA title. The narrative leaves a lot to be desired but in this day of gaming it only matters if the turd is polished and is illuminated. Maybe some of these developers/publishers need to pick up Hotline Miami to see how a sub-par graphic game can shine among even the best AAA titles.

    Score: 2/10 - Do not even waste your time. If you feel interested watch a youtuber who uploaded all the cut-scenes. Save your cash.
