FGE - To start this review off, I’ll readily admit I’m not the most learned Mad Max aficionado. I saw the original Mel Gibson movie when I was a kid, remember next to nothing about it, and never bothered with the two sequels. I enjoyed this summer’s blockbuster movie Mad Max: Fury Road immensely, but that’s in no small part because it had virtually nothing to do with the original trilogy (aside from taking place in the same world). When Avalanche Studios first announced it was making a new Mad Max video game, I remember my initial reaction was thinking it looked cool but not much else. That opinion didn’t really change over the coming months, and now that I’ve gotten to play Mad Max for myself, I can finally pinpoint why the game never managed to hang onto my attention: it’s 10% fun and 90% boredom-inducing tedium.
