    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

Great framerate, good tracking of progress and collectibles, unique and diverse locations. It was a bit light on story but it didn't bother me much; I enjoyed the driving around and collecting stuff. There were, however, a few minor annoyances. It was hard to see anything in dark locations even with the flashlight and the hand-to-hand combat was tedious after halfway through. In addition, many upgrades to the car and Max are gated behind main story progress so one can't really prepare itself by doing side-quests or collecting stuff upfront. The cars handled relatively well with keyboard and mouse, except in races were I found it difficult to make small adjustments and ended up facing backwards too many times. In conclusion, this is a good game and was worth its cost. Expand

    I can't get over how f*cking r*tarded the story in this game is. Throughout the entire game Max came off as nothing more than a d*mbassI can't get over how f*cking r*tarded the story in this game is. Throughout the entire game Max came off as nothing more than a d*mbass selfish *sshole taking one moronic bad decision after the other. One moment Max is treating this woman with indifference and abandoning her and her child to fate, the other one he is going insane with anger and hatred because they were killed. The best and most likeable character in the entire game is constantly bullied by Max and dies in a pointless and contrived way due to yet another stup*d action by Max that you as a player can't do anything to stop. And to crown this whole imbec*lity, the entire story depends on the fact that the antagonist was able to survive his brain being literally sawed in half with a chainsaw. I could eat a dictionary and still sh*t out a better script than what the id*ots who wrote this cr*p came up with.

    The gameplay is tolerable at best, but extremely repetitive and padded out. This entire game felt like a massive waste of my time.
