Mad Max Discussion
It's far from rubbish if you're a fan of the Mad Max universe.
I'm not sure why metacritic has this game at a 73... maybe It's a PS4 issue.
I personally think this game is optimized for PC and is fantastic fun. For the first time in my life I agree with IGN... MAD MAX It's a great game.
Currently running it in 4K and it's butter smooth.
Also agree - from what I'm seeing so far it's not rubbish, but it's not showing me early on that it's a proper open world game due to some stupid restrictions intended to add fake difficulty.
For example this immediately made it go from "fun" to "what the ****?".
First base need to take out cryer. I have no shells left for gun, so no ranged weapon at all, and the cryer is up hanging off a crane. I thought ok, back the Opus into the camp, harpoon his ass and drag him out into the wasteland.
There's an invisible barrier in the camp preventing the vehicle from entering. That immediately deflated my hopes for this game providing real open world, open strategy play.
Ok then plan B ... harpoon him from the entrance itself. Nope, harpoon can't target. It's either to short a length or blocked by more invisible ****.
There's some fun to be had, and visually it looks outstanding, but there appears to be some very stupid, annoying limitations geared to force a specific type of route or action.
If I keep running into more of those the game will end up in the **** pile. Being limited for no real reason isn't fun, for me anyway.
Even worse, the invisible barrier appears to be there because the "camps" are built in some kind of horrendous seqment-oriented approach. If I cross the invisible barrier I get the cryer notice, need to shut him up, attacked by those around.
I step back out 2 feet, everything goes back to normal, enemies forget I exist.
If this is only because it's the first camp being used as part of in-game tutorial showing how to play then fine. If all camps are like this... that'll be tragic.

This i s good game but not even remotely great,
1* Poor AI, and heavily scripted camps make dismatling them just boring after couple times. You can stay in the open just before invisible line to trigger AI to attack you. You fight in some kind of arenas, couple enemies at once and then nothing. Fights are "mashing X button and sometimes Y" fests.
Oh yeah, there is sometimes A also ... all boses (top dogs) are brothers i think, they look exactly the same, fight in same style, have same moves and even finishing scenes are exactly the same for them.
2* Weapons, well you have on your whole car enough space to keep 5 bullets to your sniper rifle, and with all this stuff you have with you, you still can carry just 5 or 6 shotgun shells with fully upgraded ammo belt ?? WTF ?!? And Sniper rifle mounted on car only ?? SERIOUSLY !? What with sniper rifles used by enemies, that would be difficult to allow us to take those ?
3* Melee, well i think Max is some kind of a complete idiot, he can broke shiv in an instant. Enemies can attack you with their shivs all the time, but Max grab it and BAM, one time use only. Same with other mele weapons, you can turn on infinite life otion on trainer and see how enemies beat the s...t out of you with their clubs, but grab one yourself, BAM it will break after couple hits.
4* Repetitive, every territory is exactly the same, dismantle camps, gather scrap, destroy scarecrows/snipers or minefields [this one is hilarious]. In every stronghold people are starving and die of thirst, why ? Becouse Max need to build all the needed projects like oil well, or maggot farm. SERIOUSLY ?? HOW THEY SURVIVED THEN !!?
That makes game just plain boring, after half of the map cleared of Scrotus's threat, i just decided to go straight to gasstown and finish this game as soon as possible, no more side quests.
5* Bugs, those are annoying ones. Like dissapearing map, or unresponsive controls (you can look around but can't walk, fight, pause game, select map, nothing works) only way is to let someone kill you or restart game)
I forgot how many times i died becouse my car hit some invisible barrier/obstacle on the road, and spinning like cue ball, fall from cliff.
This is my, and only my point of view, You don't need to agree with it.
P.S. Sorry for my english.
Agreed. I think the selling point for the game is too high for what you're really getting. Should be $10-$20 cheaper IMHO. It's a decent one-time game without much more to give after you beat it. It's too scripted and would have been better if they made it a bit more like Far Cry 3 or 4 with the added ability to play in 1st or 3rd person, ability to carry more weapons/ammo, and if enemies were not scripted and more dynamic.
