    Pretty fun, but overly long and gets tedious because the world map is huge and you do the same stuff from start to finish. Not sure why George Miller hates it so much though, it felt pretty true to the franchise and tied in with Fury Road well enough.

      car combat is a unique take in open world. if you havent played batham games the combat is novel and fun. the visuals are gorgeous and the engine they use (avalanche engine) is unironically my favorite open world engine in terms of looks. it's a shame the devs seem like they're just an asset in some investment corporation's brochure.

      I share these sentiments. Strong game, but unironically too big of wasteland.
      Miller's comments on wanting Hideo Kojima to do a game, while shitting on the Mad Max game was a c**t move.

        I think Miller should clarify his comments on the game to sound less c**t-y. He has no real issue with game or the development team. He hates the publisher/WB, because they stole his concept art and production notes for Fury Road prequels/sequels and threw their own interpretations of them in the game without his permission and input, thus it is considered non-canon. They refused to let him participate in its development and then he had to sue WB over franchise rights and them not paying him or most of the crew accordingly after the film's box office success (they attempted to keep 100% of the profit for themselves).

          god man, reading about the version he wanted to make with the god of war dude makes me so mad, we could've gotten an actual mad max game instead of this weird blend of ideas we got in the game, also its really funny that they retconned Max to have a daughter because they misunderstood the concept art and didn't realize Hope was not his actual kid

          >Presence of gameplay mechanics that seem completely pointless, like keeping your car filled with fuel despite never running out of fuel once in the 60 hours I have in the game

          There’s some games that I know are objectively average, yet still replay them every year. Mad Max is one of those games for me. I don’t know what it is about it that keeps me coming back.

          >I don’t know what it is about it that keeps me coming back
          I just love the way the cars handle in this game and how they all have actual weight, plus they have really good sound design as well

      Pretty good, nailed the atmosphere, mechanically perfectly adequate but not very interesting either.

      Because WB just took a whole bunch of Miller's concepts to Avalanche without involving him at all in the whole process. It was genuinely a c**t move on the publisher's part.

    It was a better sequel than Furiosa was a prequel. Also making the gyro pilot a shaman was a 10/10 call, as well as him revealing the truth that Max is an otherworldly being, doomed to roam the wastes, unable to forgive himself for what happened to his family, only receiving brief respite in being summoned to aid those in need before returning to endless, aimless wandering. Mad Max was always corny, and that kind of reveal, rather than him actually being a real person who somehow keeps finding his way into strange predicaments, is much preferred.

      That's a terrible take. The "Max is just a legend" theory sucks, it's better with a continuity and him just being one person.

      Also, Furiosa's version of Scrotus is a lot better.

          The movies take place across a span of like 30-40 years, per George Miller's own words. Mad Max 1 takes place in the mid to late 80's, not 1979 when it came out. Fury Road takes place around our own modern day.

          Unironically, yeah
          the writers actually don't get how long those things would take, in furiosa one of the characters says that his parents were soldiers before society collapsed and he was 30 to 40 at best

      Yeah i don't like the whole Legend theory for him too but i do like the idea that he is some kind of cursed supernatural immortal being, forced to suffer in the wasteland. Hell even the movie hinted at some of this, obviously with his age but also he survives some absolute bullshit like the car crash in the sandstorm, his head should be ripped off since the only thing that connect him to the car is the muzzle chain with his head.
      But then there's also the little girl somehow predicting him getting an arrow to the head.
      We might see a lot more of this in The Wasteland movie.

          It'll do fine in the long run, it's a good movie. Besides that, it only has to actually make more than $100 million or so to be profitable because most of the film's budget was supplied as grants by Australia's government rather than the studio. He's still going to make The Wasteland. However, I hope he does it quick, because I want one more final Mad Max story post-Fury Road, preferably with Mel Gibson back. It would be a real shame for these prequel spinoffs to be the last ones we get from him.

          Im just gonna have a little bit of hope for The Wasteland still being made despite the numbers.

          Another theory i like is him actually being irradiated and thus being a mutant but with mostly positive benefits, his back tattoo mentioned he has O-negative "High Octane" blood, and we know Nux was taking his blood in, and throughout the whole movie it seems like he was at peak health compared to the beginning where he was actually dying.
          Maybe High Octane means positively radiated super blood or something

            Nux rejuvenates because he has cancer (like most of the war boys). Any person with cancer feels less shitty after a blood transfusion. This was based on stories Miller heard from his dad, who was a doctor IIRC

              George Miller himself was a doctor. The entire inspiration for Mad Max to begin with came about because during the late 70's when he started practicing he was dealing with a lot of motorcycle crash victims and biker gang violence injuries (there was a huge biker gang problem in Australia back then). So he wrote a story about a guy who singlehandedly went out to deal with all the biker gangs to vent his frustrations.

        this fricking scene pissed me off so much
        it really is something only a so(y)boy redditor would write

        there is also that scene in the swamp where its dark and a sniper guy on a truck with lights is scouting them out.
        they are basically fricked.
        then Max grabs some rope and a canister ang goes off into the darkness.
        20 sec later the truck explodes.

        thats it. you as the pig audience member are to assume that Max is badass and this event is totally plausible and acceptable.

        when i saw this shit in the movie it really shot me right out of it. such a scene would never exist in the old Mad Max movies.
        I realized there that George Miller is a homosexual.

    its my go to example of a competent game, doesn't shine anywhere, but doesn't fail anywhere. It should be used as an example of the bare minimum we should expect for a game to be considered as "decent". And i mean all of this as a compliment, if you like the mad max universe this game wont disappoint.

    I hate to say it, but... it's very boring even when not comparing it to Mad Mad Fury Road. Since it came 4 months after Fury Road, you would think the developer would top the movie, but they made Batman Arkham lame combat with BORING driving and car combat. It's a video game... the developer doesn't have restrictions on explosions and action. They could have made a enemy called Explodus that's made out of explosions and he shoots explosions that shoot dinosaurs that shoot chainsaws. What a complete fricking waste of a game.

    Much better than could reasonably be expected of a movie tie in game. It's a solid game that doesn't overstay its welcome. These days I consider a game to be decent if i actually bother to finish it which I did. It's pretty easy but definitely worth a play.

      This game is so much more fun if you don’t use fast travel every time you go somewhere. It feels so much more satisfying to patrol the dunes with the constant threat of running out of gas and being assaulted by war boys

        I wish the game had a survival mode that really required you to plan your excursions from strongholds carefully based on where you could get fuel, water, food, etc. Not as brutal as survival mode in, say, Fallout 4 but something that would make the game a bit harder.

        I do wish you could actually run out of gas in this game. You rarely need to refill your tank, and if you do, it's not hard to find a new gas can anyway. Every time I did, it was just a tiny amount that needed topping off, which makes the mechanic pointless. Water, bullets, and food are scarce enough as is imo, but fuel is limitless.

    If a sequel does happen, i hope we can have the type of convoy chase where you can jump out of your vehicle and start hopping from vehicle to vehicle like Fury Road, would be dope to end up fighting hand to hand on top of a war rig or something.
