It Isn’t Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
Mad Max is actually a pretty solid game that may have drawn the short straw when it decided on a rather questionable launch date. It came out on the same day as Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. You know, the game that everyone is in love with at the moment? The thing is, one of Mad Max’s biggest strengths is that it is not MGS V.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with The Phantom Pain, but that game is intense and a break every now and then from its captivating world is necessary. What better way to break free than by jumping into another amazing world, filled with its own threats, lore, and activities?
Mad Max provides its own special type of open world. One where the desert is alive and there are no allies (none you can truly trust, anyway) as you scavenge your way through the wasteland. No choppers to come evacuate you from danger, no buddies to cover your back, and no army ready to do your bidding. Its lack of all the grandiose makes it a more intimate affair that is definitely worth your time if you’re looking for something a bit different.
