If you loved Saints Row, the Batman Arkham series of games, Borderlands, and the Mad Max movies then you will love Mad Max the game. The game consists of taking the role of Mad Max after his ride has been stolen, recruiting a crazy mechanic that will help you build a car that will let you get your ride back, and rebuilding civilization in the region along the way.
-It’s Mad Max!
-Really captures the low technology and scarcity of the post-apocalypse world.
-Gives more insight as to what might have caused the Armageddon.
-Game engine performance is amazing (very well optimized).
-The sand storm parts are terrifying.
-As much carnage and slaughter as a Mad Max movie or anything from Warhammer 40k.
-Persistent auto-save system that works flawlessly so it doesn’t interrupt gameplay.
-Fast travel system that although convenient can also be used to cheat in many situations (such as low health/water).
-Too expensive ($60 price).
-Car combat is not as good as Auto Assault.
-Game events/activities are too repetitive. Some events/activities you might expect are missing such as escort missions, etc.
-Game ending was TOO EASY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
-Game is badly in need of a 2nd campaign (DLC please!)
-Damage system is not realistic at all (I was ran over by a car going at full speed without dying).
-Pretty much no replay value (unless they add DLC that changes the game a lot).
-Mechanic fixes car too easily (it’s basically immortal if you know how to play).
-In a world of finite extremely-limited resources, you’re going around blowing up oil production plants which is the OPPOSITE of you would want to be doing in the post-apocalypse! This major logic-fail makes the game stupid when you really think about it.
Review score: 6.5 out of 10
