Ron explains how and why he fell in love with Hope's character in Avalanche Studios' Mad Max.
This game was very repetitive and got boring imo.
Call me weird, but something about the repetition and watching the world map slowly clear up as you progressed was just incredibly satisfying to me. I only played it because of PS +, but it was good imo
This, can't say the same foe every game, but in Mad Max raiding camps and fighting bosses to clear the map was pretty dang fun. still remember the one camp where instead of breaking down their defenses i just hit a dirt mound and barrel rolled into the camp and started wrecking faces. T'was quite metal
I can see where you're coming from. I feel the same way but about black flag
Exactly. Not everybody can handle games like that but I really felt that when I played Saboteur. It was super repetitive but it was satisfying when you just took a step back and saw the progress. It was a great podcast game. Just turn on your favorite podcasts and blast away.
Every game can be broken down to "repetition", please come up with some criticism of substance.
100% agree. I actually liked the game a lot at first, but after about 15-20 hours, I couldn't do the same thing over and over again anymore. Go to base here, take down two turrets, kill 5 bad guys, rinse, repeat. Not a bad game, but certainly a lot of room for improvement if a sequel is ever made.
I actually really liked her as a character, but that just be because she was the only attractive female in the game’s entire world lol
So you liked her ''personality'' ;?
She was a 10 in the game but a 7 in the real world?
I’d say so, yeah lol
I'm enjoying it the game. I've not finished it yet. Just maxing out before the last mission.
I've been on the fence about playing this game but now that Rage 2 is coming out I feel like that may be a much better game...
Good article! I finished the game and experienced exactly what the author is describing about how the game ends. Great game!
Although it was repetitive, the combat and car battles were excellent. Got it for $10 and it was the best money I spent in a while
Very underrated. Car Combat was fun.
was great game, not for everyone, but i enjoyed it lots
I liked Mad Max. It was fun. But I have no memory of this character lol
Same here!! In fact, I have no memory of any of the characters really, but I did enjoy the game.
Well, the hunchback that rides with Max through most of the game is memorable (although, I can't recall his name lol). He's actually one of the more enjoyable and well-realized side characters that I can think of this gen.
Sorry - now that I thought about it further, pretty much any side character in God Of War is more memorable and realized than the hunchback. But he still is well-realized nonetheless :)
Ah yes, poor old Chum Bucket!! Yeah, I did like him. He's the only character in the game I can really remember. And also came to a grisly end if my memory serves me correctly at the hands of Max?? After he was so helpful. Max is an asshole. Poor Chum Bucket 😂😂
One of my top 10. Amazing game, beautiful.
I was in love with Isabella from Dragon Age 2. Not so much the game though.
I fell in love with chumbucket
I felt joy killing that boss for what he did to her
Bit of a butter face IMO
It was a pretty fun game, except bugs destroyed it for me. You need to complete certain objectives to get certain items needed to progress. So if you need 6/6 things, but you don't realize that one of the early objectives you completed was bugged... well you're stuck. I think it was the first outpost raid or whatever. Which then I think kept me from getting the highest or 2nd highest level winch. Which then meant I couldn't progress. I didn't know until I was about halfway or more through the game. Sucks that something at the 5-10 percent mark can screw you from going past 50-60 percent or so. What a waste. Thought about redoing it, but I just couldn't stomach doing it all again while perhaps the same or another bug anywhere along the line through the end could do it to me again.
I honestly really enjoyed this game despite its repetition in some areas. Reducing the influence of those douche bag characters and growing as a hero was really fun and they did not shy away from pushing the dark theme of the story and added hard twists and turns. I loved it and the car combat was so damn good. Yes the on-foot combat could have used some love but after playing Batman, I didnt mind it was much.
Very underrated gem of a game
Liked this game alot but took a break after finding a bug that kept me from 100% the game. I wasn’t able to harpoon a container open to collect the scrap inside. I came back a year later messing around and found a way to glitch myself inside. Felt really good figuring out how to bypass the bug. Finally got my Platinum.
I've had a lot of waifus in games over the years. Your point?
This game had the misfortune of coming out on the same day as Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and got overlooked by so many people including myself
Enjoyed the game , but getting my last trophy after finishised story proved nearly impossible, so sacked it. But yeah I did enjoy my play though minus to boring collectible grind.
I enjoyed the game for quite a while but never finished it. Eventually lost interest.
Loved this game, was mad fun.
I recently started playing it and it's kind of cool.
