    Mad Max the game isn’t only a fantastic time, it’s a great addition to the franchise, and one of the few games that completely destroys the expectations that a movie based game has to be bad.

    Like the movie, Mad Max is the perfect summer time romp and should surely wet your appetite before the true Road Warrior inspired game releases later this fall, Fallout 4.

    Mad Max might be formed from familiar parts of other games, but the car-wrecking, skull-cracking chaos it creates is a rewarding and expansive adventure.

    Mad Max may be a bit of a mixed bag, but the faithful recreation of the film universe, the ridiculous car combat, and loads of content will keep players coming back to the desert for a long time.

    There’s a lot here – a lot of scrap to collect and cars to push off the side of the road – but nothing gluing it all together. [December 2015, p75]

    As you wander the desert on the lookout for pieces of scrap, your enjoyment will feel like it's on a downward trajectory the longer that you play. As a result, you'll try to spend as much time as you can racing across its beautifully realised wasteland, while avoiding anything that pulls you from behind the wheel.

    When it comes to simply chewing through yet another open world game, Mad Max does suffice. It’s a substandard but largely competent “AAA” game in a sea full of them, and those who do value the idea of content above all else will find more than their money’s worth here...There’s simply no reason to pick it up, however, if you’ve yet to try The Witcher 3, Shadow of Mordor or Batman: Arkham City. There are tons of better games that go for what Mad Max went for and do so in a superior manner.

    I felt compelled to write a quick review after looking at some of the artificially low Critic scores, I was fortunate enough to get the gameI felt compelled to write a quick review after looking at some of the artificially low Critic scores, I was fortunate enough to get the game early because of the bank holiday. Mad max is the most fun I've had in years on a single player game, there's a ton of things to do in each zone the game world is pretty big, the graphics are good and the game runs smooth and not had a single crash or glitch in over 50 hours play. Brutal sandstorms can hit shredding enemies and throwing max around, optional side quests to complete, story missions, death races, brutal fights this game has it all. Do yourself a favour pick it up you will enjoy it if you actually like playing games. Expand

    This game is very amazing!i am having such a blast!!im about 30 hours in and i still have as bunch left to do and theres still the competitionThis game is very amazing!i am having such a blast!!im about 30 hours in and i still have as bunch left to do and theres still the competition starting sept 9 for a chance to win one of the in game vehicles!i would tell anyone to buy this game becasue its huge,very fun,good graphics and so many mission/side quests/ random events and things to do its a great single player experience.my only complaint is the controlls,in which i changed in the options and now its fine.theres also an amaZing capture mode which allows u to pause at any moment and take the camera/your point of view and fly it anywhere for that perfect kodak moment,! This game has been rated very low by critics and i dont understand,i noticed the reviews by gamers are very high.its not right to have ppl rate games that arent core gamers!in my opinion this game is worth the money as u will have tons and tons of hours of gameplay and you will be having fun doing it and customizing your own car to your liking!theres alot of other things you can spend that money on and not get the same value from it!hope this helps!

The combat on foot is kinda like Batman Arkham games which I wouldn't say is a bad thing. The world is beautiful and huge and the landscapes are suprisingly interesting. The game runs great and the graphics are alright. The story kinda sucks and has a lot of plotholes. The characters in this game are forgettable. The missions do get repetative but they are still fun. The first few hours of the game are slow but it gets better. For some reason the character models look mediocre compared to the rest of the world. Overall this game is really fun and worth checking out. Expand

    Never buy an Avalanche Studios game. They release broken, and often impossible to complete, and are never, ever patched. This is a terribleNever buy an Avalanche Studios game. They release broken, and often impossible to complete, and are never, ever patched. This is a terrible studio that needs to be severely punished for its hostile business practices. Too bad, too, because Mad Max is a halfway decent game worthy of a 7, and was fun until it broke - which is the point. A game that breaks the way this game breaks, the way Just Cause games break, in becoming unplayable and broken in ways that never get fixed and for a very significant amount of players - deserves a 0 score, and 0 of your dollars.
