Who doesn’t know, even from hearing, Mad Max? Everyone has heard at least of one of movies, the character named Max played by Mel Gibson or the motif of demonic vehicles and suicidal War Boys.
The first Mad Max film was made in 1979. This film was a pioneer of the post apo genre and inspired people to create hundreds of post apocalyptic series, games and films. The Avalanche Studio (the creator of Just Cause) also decided to use this idea. The studio, in cooperation with Warner Bros, created the Mad Max game.
Mad Max was originally presented at E3 in 2013. It was supposed to be released on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, but it was canceled. After few years game went to the next-generation consoles and PC.
Mad Max is a third person action game in which we can experience car fights, as well as crafting elements. The producers, creating over 50 models of machines and cars known from films, placed great emphasis on car racing and fighting. As previously mentioned, the game is strongly inspired by the series of Mad Max movies directed by G. Miller. Game creators, however, tried to create a completely new, alternative version of the adventures of the former policeman named Max Rockatansky.
The game is full of classic, iconic themes from movies, as well as many iconic scenes. Mad Max is a sandbox game. It is characterized by a large openness of the world and freedom in making decisions. We can move freely around the map and explore the post-apocalyptic world of the Wasteland. Setting up camps, collecting and selling scrap, as well as performing side missions are a guarantee of an good entertainment.
The mechanics of the game is based largely on car battles, as well as hand-to-hand combat with the use of counters.
