    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

    Very solid game! Fills the needed niche of next-gen car combat. Open environment driving is fantastic and the car combat is visceral. PLUS,Very solid game!

If you like these and/or Mad Max in general (if you've seen the movie/s), then you should definitely pick it up.
    The game runs really well on the ps4, graphics are impressive, the audio is stunning and the scenery and lighting adds to its beautiful atmosphere!
    Rich content, great gameplay (car combat is awesome and fist combat is brutal!), but kinda weak story (basically just: build a car...), and the game could feel a bit repetitive after a while.
    The absolute best part about the game, where it shines, is the driving. This is something that I think many games lack, but in Mad Max it just feels so good.
    Avalanche Studios delivered a decent and intense action-packed game, and I hope to see DLCs and possibly a sequel.

    tl;dr... Mad Max is a solid and badass game. I recommend it!

    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.
