This game is absolutely incredible if you love open worlds, you love Batman Arkham combat, and you love customizing cars and ramming them into things. If you also happen to love the world of Mad Max, you are in heaven. This is far better than any of the Just Cause games, in my opinion, as it really shows the depth and wide assortment of skills Avalanche Studios has at its disposal. I'd highly recommend this game to anyone and everyone. Even the end provides you with more content than you'd expect.
The reason why I bought this game was because it was an excellent port. Ample options for days. Combat is very bad, graphics are nice, and gameplay is fun but also repetitive. Give it a try when it's on sale.
It's a large game. Perhaps even a huge one. That might be the biggest failing of this game. It simply doesn't have enough to do. There's the usual tedium of destroying things dotted around the map, but that just doesn't cut it. The combat is hampered by the token rpg elements that, while perhaps necessary for the story, ruin the pace of the early-mid game. Not only that, but the usual 'arkham style combat' is just as easy as it always is. There are a few elements that ruin immersion. For instance, where are the bikes? The mad max universe had bikes! Also, how do we fit 40 cars in a garage that only fits one? How does our car teleport in and out of the strongholds? Ah, look, it's a good game; it's just disappointing. Don't let me put you off it. The driving is fun, and the story and setting is unique and interesting.
Anyone who has followed Max's story through the movies probably will not be disappointed. After all, how is your personality? He is a gentleman with no sense of humor, violent and obsessed with an almost paranoid revenge; Does not want friends and the people who leave in their path are only a means to achieve that revenge with the world in general. A guy with these characteristics does not allow deep dialog because he does not give them feet, he goes to the point, he is not someone who, being meager in words, enjoys life like, say, Geralt de Rivia.
Mad Max is a great game, but far from perfect. There are two main reasons why this is not one of the best open world games ever made. First one is the fact that we've played this a lot of times in different games by Warner Bros: The Batman Arkham series (four games) and Shadow of Mordor. All those games were great, just like Mad Max is, but the truth is that Mad Max does nothing new. The gameplay mechanics are not as well polished as the others and there is absolutely nothing new in Mad Max (Shadow of Mordor was like Batman, yeah, but at least it featured an impressive Nemesis system). Second reason is the time you need to play the game. We are talking about a game that lasts for about 10 hours of main story and about 70 hours to complete it 100 %. We've faced this before in games like the ones I've mentioned before, the Assassin's Creed series and many others, but not the way we have here. The game gets repetitive doing the same over and over again. But Mad Max is a pretty good game. The driving parts are cool and the universe of Mad Max is very well implemented in this game. Many references to the movies and a good sense of action each time you shoot your shotgun from your Magnum Opus. It is kind of like being in the movies, and that's exactly what you would expecte from a game like this.
