    A very good Mad Max game, with some excellent bits but also some issues. The setting is great, car combat is incredibly fun - there's a good sense of freedom and the main missions are pretty good, but the story is quite flat (even though the ending is great), the fighting system is nothing more than decent and the optional stuff becomes pretty repetitive.

    Mad Max successfully blends well-known and popular elements from other games. Post-apocalyptic world is very well presented and driving behind the Magnus Opus' wheel is so engrossing that the latest work from Avalanche is definitely worth your time, even if one needs to turn a blind eye to few shortcomings.

    In the end, Mad Max’s ability to create a good time far outweighs any problems it has.

    It captures the charm of the outstanding original, and should satisfy fans of the original. However, it is also monotonous, tough and a little unimaginative.

    Is it a bad game? Absolutely not. On the contrary, Ubisoft's open-world template is perfect for churning out market-friendly games that tick all the boxes of "What People Want." Or, perhaps, "What You Want."...And honestly, Mad Max's formula is still to some extent "What I Want." Just not as much as a few years ago.

    The formula wears off quickly but the fans of the movie will have their Mad Max fix.
  7. The type which does not present a novelty for open world Mad Max. Repetitive missions. Is it fun to collect scrap metal?

    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

The open world of Mad Max is one of the most atmospheric and enjoyable to date. The fighting looks nice and brutal, gameplay wise a bit easy, but feels very satisfying. Upgrading your car and character makes you want to get more scrap by any means necessary. I would agree it is a little bit repetitive but I find myself wanting more. For me personally, I havent felt this way about a game since Assassins Creed Black Flag.

    Satisfying gameplay, imo the best graphics yet (maybe not from a technical standpoint, I couldn't tell, but the design of the open world, and the way they've pushed the viewing distance) and a pretty good system for levelling up makes this a really good game.

    What I would have wanted: A more punishing difficulty,regarding fighting and making gas/food/water more valuable.

    My mind is blown everytime i see the critic scores though. It makes you think the reviewsites are mainly corrupt.

The story started off pretty strong but unfortunately fell of quite a bit near the end. (the end just was plain stupid) The game itself looks great, with quite a lot of things to do. Collecting scraps was slightly tedious though but since I;m a completist I still put up with it for the sake of unlocking everything I possibly could. Still quite upset with the ending wich in my opinion felt rushed. If I haden't watched or read anything mad max related I might have been a little les upset about it but all in all still a pretty solid game So 8/10 for me. Expand
