Mad Max Review - GamerKnights

European gaming website GamerKnights has done a full review of the new Mad Max videogame. Can it compete against other wasteland games?

Here's more from the review:

"The world of Mad Max is massive. The initial stretch of wasteland Max is dumped into is just a small chunk of the huge world Avalanche have designed here, and that first time you open up the world map and zoom out you realize just how much you’re going to rely on the Magnum Opus. It’s then that you truly appreciate the value of Max and Chumbucket’s mission: to build the best, biggest and most badass car in the wasteland."

Good review these are the scores mad max should be getting not 5s or 6s it's a great game.

if it was a great game it would be getting consistent 8s & 9s but those are the minority. something clearly wrong and missing, WB and Avalanche need to take responsibility for the lack of polish. such wasted potential.

criticizing a game doesn't mean it's bad and shouldn't be played, its to constructive advice to the developers so they can avoid the mistakes in the future.

Great review, I love the hell out of this game. It took me away from MGSV and I haven't been able to put it down.

Good review but you never touched upon some of its flaws like the hated minefield activity, camera blocking view during hand to hand combat and whatever else you felt hurt the game.

There is a patch available now.

PATCH YOU SAY!!!! I was riding around Pink Eye's territory last night and was thinking about when the first patch might drop.

I love the game so far, probably 20hrs in, give or take. I didn't agree with your cons, because you can never have too many collectibles lol. I honestly want more, just so you can have more variety to drive. The markers on the map is fine with me. It's just a lot of stuff you can do which is part of the reason why I love the game. Most people will be able to tell you the same things as to why this game is so great like graphics, the handling of the cars, the progression of the environment, the day/night cycles, etc... So I'll just tell you a few things I didn't like... starting with the combat. I think they kept the combat simple because at its core it's a driving game, but I felt like adding a real combat system to it would've given it a high 90 rating. You can use the shotgun button during combat, but really it's just three buttons that you're smashing during hand to hand combat. I would've liked some combos with the D-pad or something interesting like that. The actual fighting itself is pretty atrocious because the parrying doesn't always work properly. The minefield activity is probably the worst part about the game. What would've made this better would've been making it so the dog is with Max and Chumbucket all the time instead of having to choose that one particular vehicle that the dog can fit in. Not sure why they did it that way. The only other thing I don't like is the fact that it says you can customize the way your car looks, but at the expense of your perks. It's kind of a win-lose situation, because at the same time I like that the different choices for armor can add weight to your car and affects the dynamics of it. So if I just didn't care about how the armor affected the car, I personally would've liked to be able to just unlock the perks as you progress through the story, but still be able to change the look of the car and it not affect the dynamics of the car, if that makes sense.

I played this game for about 14 hrs straight this weekend. I don't know where people are getting these low review scores from this is easily one of the best games of the year. I have yet to find a game breaking bug. Sometimes the car will get stuck on something but that's the beauty of having the flare gun. Great visuals and gameplay.

That's why we gave it a 8.4/10 because we do LOVE the game so much. It has it flaws but still, it's a damn fine good game.
