    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.

It's been taken from a film and what the hell would you do in a wasteland? To me it is sufficient the atmosphere and the stunning visualis the game offers, bounded with a solid and well known gameplay. It is extremely relaxing, like I loved to ride the horse on Red Dead Redemption simply doing nothing. Amazing feeling. Expand

    I'm about 25 hours into the game and I've reached an accurate and strong opinion about this game: simply amazing.

    It started off slow as the controls and combat are a bit unorthodox, but once I got used to it I was hooked!

    Pros & Cons:
    + Environment/Graphics/Sound design
    + Variety of interesting activities/quests/side quests
    + Combat (you get used to it) very Batman-ish
    + Character/vehicle upgrades are addictive!

    - Unorthodox combat and control layout

This game is outstanding and with an interesting story to back up the fun gameplay, I have been hooked ever since I got it. I definitely recommend this game to anyone. Expand

    Pretty good game. A hidden gem. Interesting and unique gameplay, combined with a huge open-world world and insanely good and funny story, a great addition to MM movies. I hope a new sequel to the game comes out.

    SRP:
    Dosta dobra igra. Skriveni dragulj. Interesantan i unikatan gejmplej, u kombinaciji sa ogromnim open-world svetom i ludo dobrom i smešnom pričom, odličan dodatak MM filmovima. Nadam se da će izaći novi nastavak igre.

Mad Max is a sprawling open world destruction derby ofI've seen a lot of "reviewers" hitting this game hard for all sorts of insane reasons. Mad Max is a sprawling open world destruction derby of chrome and fists. It hit are of the marks I would expect for a game bearing the name. It performs well on Xbox One with limited frame rate stutters.

    I put 18.5 hours into the game on the first day. I find the mechanic of the game being about the car to be -perfect- for Mad Max. The need to fuel the car, drink (a nifty way around a timed hydration mechanic) & eat to heal, and limited ammunition are all in keeping the with Mad Max Universe.

    The roads are and areas are sprawling and there is genuine incentive to clear areas. The tasks can be repetitious but show me a game that doesn't have repetition. I just make sure I don't do the same things back to back and when one specific type of task becomes tiresome -cough- minefields- cough I do something else. Getting Jeet's stronghold upgraded along with upgrading my ammo capacity and melee abilities made the game less threatening. The Havok engine is on display here with fighting I would argue is better than Arkaham.

    Is it game of the year? No. Its not as good as Witcher 3 but IS better than Arkham Knight. If you enjoy sprawling sandboxes or post apoc games this is up your alley. If you are looking for Forza in the desert or something casual stay away.

    If you ever said "man I wish I had a car" while playing FO3/FONV this is your game.

    Mad Max was overlooked since it hit stores on the same day as Metal Gear Solid V. That's a shame cause the game is a pleasant surprise. ThisMad Max was overlooked since it hit stores on the same day as Metal Gear Solid V. That's a shame cause the game is a pleasant surprise. This isn't the best of its kind, but much better than I expected. It features a big post-apocalyptic map, plenty of combat missions, car customization and lots of loot. If you've ever played Shadow of Mordor or Batman: Arkham Knight, then you'll be familiar with the gameplay. In Mad Max"], the titular hero teams up with a hunchback after losing his beloved vehicle, the Interceptor. The two attempt to rebuild the Magnum Opus car while battling Scabrous Scrotus, the son of Fury Road's Immortan Joe.

    "Max" isn't as good as any of the other games I've mentioned, but it's well-made and packed with plenty of activities to do. So if you love the movies and survival action games like The Last of Us, then you should be pleased with this adaption. I would rate it with a 7.7 out of 10.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This game is an actual tragedy. I'd rather **** in my hand and clap than give it the slightest bit of recognition or praise.
    The game is based around the movie, which I don't like either, but I can actually see where people find their entertainment from that.
    But the game is something special. If they changed the title to "Handy Manny's Apocalyptic Desert simulator" I'd understand, but no, it's literally a mechanic looking for bits of his car, fighting off a few gypos on the way in a sandbox. Then when all the gypos are dead in the sand box you're in, you get moved to a new one, with the same family of gypos, and the same missions.
    I think its safe to say that the creator of the game ate a few shrooms and drove into a halting site, with the outcome being a few inbred nackers coming out and beating the ****e out of the car with their broken hurleys, and robbed the hubcaps off it aswell, so he had to look for the parts when he was sober. That's literally the game.
    I fell sorry for the people that payed full price for it tbh but I bought Tererria and played it for 10 minutes so what do I know.
    It feels like pissing out golf balls
