    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.

    I bought MGS V and Mad Max last night, I figured I would try Mad Max for an hour before i would start Metal Gear. I still have not playedI bought MGS V and Mad Max last night, I figured I would try Mad Max for an hour before i would start Metal Gear. I still have not played metal gear a day later. This mad max game besides being beautufl graphically is so much fun, there is so much stuff to do in the game. My one little grip is that you cannot collect scrap metal by driving over it Expand

I was torn between this and mgs, but since i already have so many "long" games such as destiny, eso and elite dangerous and the witcher, i felt that i simply wouldnt have time to play another one, so i went with mad max as i wanted some carnage and explosions in the wastelands.

    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 in my view an underrated game. I think the reason why some do not like the game is because it is not completely faithful to the movie and has fairly simple melee combat. From my perspective the graphics are stunning, the voice acting is well done, the sense of exploration is amazing, the combat both on foot and in car is not overly complicated yet is immensely rewarding, the list of things to do is huge and fun, all in all making a great game.

    The only weakness I see so far is the story but as the gameplay is so amazing I do not care that the story is not as fleshed out as a game like GTA V.

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

If you're a serious completionist, get ready for a lot of grinding and repetitiveness, but overall this game is definitely worth a full playthrough. The combat is reminiscent of the Arkham games and taking down convoys in your car is great fun. I was led to believe the customization was deeper than gradually getting better parts, but the chase is fun and worthwhile nonetheless.

    The story definitely feels like a Mad Max movie and a lot of the set pieces are pretty rad, but I can't help but feel that this game is bogged down with a lot more content than it needs without fully utilizing any of it to its fullest.

    That said, this game looks good, runs really well and so far no bugs really to speak of. This is a solid game that has so much variety that it actually hurts the final product.

    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.
