    A great and fun game that fails to provide enough progression on its mechanic. Nonetheless, you'll find a game that is as big as easy to play and beautifully crafted, which is faithful to the universe created by George Miller.

    While overall Mad Max borrows from past titles like Batman when it comes to combat, or Far Cry when it comes to the design of its open world and its activities, it still manages to stand out through its car combat. The story is also pretty compelling and manages to keep you invested even if some of the missions get repetitive after a while.

    Even if lacking a plot capable of sparking the player's interest, Mad Max managed to keep us entertained for tens of hours thanks to its vast world rich of opportunities. A solid game, worth a try for all fans of the movie series.

    Mad Max is a solid, if slightly unremarkable open-world game that does a good job in replicating the atmosphere and tone of the movies, and the character's essence, but fails to provide any real excitement beyond its vehicle-based combat.

    The beautiful wasteland is incredible to drive around, but leave the Magnum Opus and the excitement dips. This is nearly excellent, but instead is frustrating.
  6. Mad Max, despite his propensity for violence and vengeance, represents a flicker of hope that humanity’s best will always work to endure and survive its worst. And that, I think I finally understand, is what has kept me returning the Avalanche’s wasteland night after night.
  7. 40
    Mad Max’s fondness for never-ending upgrades and tedious open-world quests stymies the exceptional car combat and compelling characters.

    Only 1 hour in & Great so far! Not the sharpest 1080p game ive payed on xbox but it looks but still looks great. I will never know why someOnly 1 hour in & Great so far! Not the sharpest 1080p game ive payed on xbox but it looks but still looks great. I will never know why some objects in certain games have an annoying STROBING EFFECTS such as certain debris on the ground especially in this game and Im playing on a new 55cm samsung tv and Ive tried all TV settings so it has to be an xbox resolution thing. (ANY ADVICE WOULD BE APPRECIATED) Back to the game. Cars drive GREAT and both car and hand to hand combat is the best ive experienced in a game. I just hope it doesnt get to REPETITIOUS LIKE MOST MODERN NEXT GEN GAMES which seems to be the downfall of many titles. Explosions also look great as well as the characters and environment. For me even though im not far into the game, it is the SURPRISE PACKET game of the year. In saying that MG5 (PHANTOM PAIN) gets my vote for GAME OF THE YEAR Expand

    One of the best looking and most exhilarating games you can play on Xbox 1... This game beautifully borrows the exploration of a Far Cry /One of the best looking and most exhilarating games you can play on Xbox 1... This game beautifully borrows the exploration of a Far Cry / Assassin's Creed game, mixes it with driving mechanics from Need for Speed, and throws in the combat made popular by the Batman: Arkham series, while making each of these things seem unique to this game.

    It does have it's flaws - audio is a bit laggy, some of the character models feature a rogue glitchy-looking animation here and there, combat isn't overly challenging and the missions can feel repetitive from time to time.

    That said, these flaws are forgiven by a BEAUTIFUL environment, incredible music and SFX, and exhilarating gameplay which includes seamless transitions between vehicle combat and human combat. There's something to be said for a game whose sound effects can pump you up... reving up the engine of the Magnum Opus for the first time is an incredible feeling, and each upgrade you through onto your blossoming rig adds a level of satisfaction for progression-driven games like this that's rare to find any more.

    If you loved Fury Road, or if anything I said above is interesting to you, stop reading these reviews and go try the game. It's a game that essentially went from not being on my radar to one of my favorite games on XB1 within the first 10 minutes of playing the game.

    Great game! The car mechanics are great, as are the ways to upgrade your car. Combat is like batman arkham but more gritty. The world itselfGreat game! The car mechanics are great, as are the ways to upgrade your car. Combat is like batman arkham but more gritty. The world itself is true to the Mad Max movies, feels totally like it. Story isn't great though and there is waaaaaay too many collectibles (I got every single one and it took forever). I would recommend getting this game Expand

    To make it short, good looking, fun to play the first 30 hours and after that you realize that you're doing the same things over and over.To make it short, good looking, fun to play the first 30 hours and after that you realize that you're doing the same things over and over. There are good customizations too and honestly, the game worth the try. But to give you a good example, i've finished 55% of the global progression in about 65 hours, too damn long when you want to do everything on the map... Expand

    It is a fun game when you are just zooming around the first few areas, upgrading you car, smashing things, but as soon as you dare to progressIt is a fun game when you are just zooming around the first few areas, upgrading you car, smashing things, but as soon as you dare to progress the story the game shows it's true colours.

    DO NOT play this game if you just want to enjoy yourself.

    THIS GAME PUNISHES FUN.

    You don't play Mad Max, you work for it. If you want to progress, you better get to work. You have to fight the exact same battles, take out the exact same cars over and over and over and over and over and over until the game tells you that you can go to the next, even more impossible area.

    The point where I could not take it anymore is when the game told me I needed a "Faster Car"

    And by that it ment I needed to DOWNGRADE my car to almost the starting vehicle and then go fight a near IMPOSSIBLE battle to get a PAINT JOB.

    The skill required to get the paint job for that mission FAR outweighed the difficulty of the actual mission.

    If your game makes it harder to GET TO the mission than to actually do it. GO BACK! DO IT AGAIN! YOU MADE THE GAME WRONG!

    I can overlook the frame rate issues, the horrible characterization and the non-existent story but when a game just slams you into a brick wall for no reason.

    Then you made a bad game.
