Overall, the reviews of this Mad Max game have been favorable, even from the game critics. Video game critics have a tendency to be much harsher than the general public. However, there are also going to be instances in which the critics actually love a given game and the general public doesn’t for whatever reason. Critics are people who have, on average, played more video games than even the most dedicated game players, which can potentially make them jaded and receptive to any novelty in a way that a hobbyist will not be, which can lead to some miscommunication among game players. Fortunately, the audience reaction to Mad Max and the critical reaction to Mad Max were around the same, which should help illustrate the quality of the game.

Mad Max is an extremely exciting game that has managed to impress people with its graphics. This is not a game that is going to be especially earth-shattering in its originality, of course. Post-apocalyptic stories are as old as time, and they have been extremely popular in video games for a long time as well. The Mad Max game of 2015 strikes many of the same notes as the other games that have helped fill out the post-apocalyptic gaming genre for a while.

Some people want video games to expand beyond the confines of fighting, and they’re not going to find that here. However, there is a reason why fighting games have been popular for years, and they are still here to stay. Many of the worst fighting games fail to time things properly and do not provide a plethora of interesting obstacles for the players. Mad Max manages to avoid falling into those traps, giving players all sorts of obstacles and forcing them to devise new strategies on the fly. They’re given everything that they could possibly want from games of this sort, and the fans of this genre are going to be able to play it over and over again.

Fans of the original film are going to feel that the game was faithful to the film in all of the right ways. They definitely both feel like they take place in the same universe. However, this is a universe that people can join.
