    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

It is being on par with Just Cause 2 while improving on graphics and making the world more open. While travelling there is never a shortage of distractions whether it be thirsty strangers or people to beat up it is always fun to stop and do everything this game has to offer. While the combat and general collecting of the game has been used before it is no different from most recent AAA games and to be honest I find these open world games a lot more fun. Overall a amazingly beautiful game with fun combat and a nice story worth play for sure. Expand

    Mad Max is a wonderful blast through the wastelands of post apocalyptic Australia. Excellent voice acting and dialogue from the mainMad Max is a wonderful blast through the wastelands of post apocalyptic Australia. Excellent voice acting and dialogue from the main characters builds a scenario that you want to see through to the end. Max can feel clunky at first but the vehicle and hand to hand combat will have you looking past it quickly. The game is a typical open world a la Batman, Farcry, and GTA. You will spend many hours completing story missions, side quests, collecting loot and upgrading Max and you cars. The graphics and sound on Xbox One are excellent and I only noticed an occasional fps drop when exploring. If you like open world games or Mad Max in general pick this up. Expand

It didn't hurt that I was playing "Arkham Knight" rightAbout six hours in and getting grips on the game, I found myself rather enjoying it. It didn't hurt that I was playing "Arkham Knight" right beforehand, because many of the mechanics feel similar in nature. The graphics are nice ("Shadow of Mordor" level quality), and the driving is thankfully better than the Batmobile. Critics from E3 complained of repetitive fighting, but it's no more repetitive than anything in the Batman series. In fact, it felt a little more real, and for that I liked it a little better. Good game so far, and eager to jump back into it. Expand

The voice acting isn't much to write home about and the graphics are good, not excellent, but the game itself is pretty fun. It'll get repetitious after awhile, but, in general, the game is worth playing. 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.
