Forget Mel Gibson... The game is based on a comic book of Mad Max and not the movies
Looks good, although I'm starting to get a bit tired of all the games that are set in various "post apocalyptic" scenarios. All them barren landscapes are amusing only so long, but after several games that all seem to take place in the desert I'm really starting to miss the greenery of Oblivion. Just to list a few of the recent "desert" titles: Fallout3 and New Vegas, Rage, Borderlands and Borderlands 2, Mars War Logs, and others that I can't think of right now. Almost beginning to seem like the easy way out, why bother making all them nice green trees and grass slowly waving in the breeze when you can create a desert in a fraction of the time and just sprinkle some rocks about to give it at least some appearance of a natural environment.
As a fan of Mad Max, I'm very skeptical about this game. I'm hoping it'll be good, of course, but I doubt it.
Nice concept,but it dosen't persuade though as a promising good game. Needs work, trailer too small.
Looks interesting, I agree to the comments that it looks like a mix of RAGE and some Fallout. I like it, good that Mad Mel is not in there. Thinking of it, this were still the good old days where Max was the Mad man and not Mel ;-)
Lets see what happens here, it could be good but doing a movie game always if had to pull off. I hope they can do it.
No Mel Gibson (Meh....I wouldn't care much. :P )
I will buy this game. :D
Mad max is next on my buy list.
I am really looking forward to this. As a huge Mad Max fan its just gonna be awesome. That is if they give it appropriate treatment and not just go for a cash grab using the license.
I really want more of a survival simulation-y game that tries to be somewhat realistic at least in terms of things that are rooted in reality. But that enemy at around 1:18 looks barely human and that worries me. Also, it looks to be a boss fight and that's also something I don't really like.
But I'm a realist, I know the game will probably be a typical modern action game with all the standard game-y stuff that people expect and frankly that today's gamers want. So, I know I'm probably in the minority, but as a huge Mad Max fan it's just disappointing to think that the game we've been dying to see will just be a simple action game like every other and is really only being made to cash in on the upcoming movie, even if it doesn't tie in to it. One good thing though, if it creates a buzz and lots of interest, it might open up the way for a unlicensed crowdfunded game that is more like what I and probably many others want.
I admit the graphics aren't going to really sweep anyone off their feet, but the vibe feels right. The guy doesn't look like Mel Gibson, but can you blame them? I agree he's iconic but even using his likeness would probably cost a fortune and I sincerely doubt they want the hassle of actually working with him. He's kind of a nutball.
I don't see why people are complaining so much. It looks cool, my only question is if this is PS3/360 footage or from PS4/One because the graphics aren't anything mind blowing. They're good but not "next gen".
The female narrator's lack of an Australian accent = failure. Hopefully this video is just from before they realized the error of their ways, and they aren't just going to make Max an Australian surrounded by Americans.
@1wikkid1 And you could try the last of us.
@1wikkid1 You mean the only 6 games in a sea of first person modern warfare games? Yeah, I agree there are way too many.
<end sarcasm mode>
@holtrocks . Everytime i play borderlands or Fallout, i cant help but think of Mad Max.
@Egils3270 THE GAME IS BASED ON A COMIC BOOK AND NOT FROM THE MOVIES.... Mad Max of the comic book does not look like Mel Gibson at all.
@Egils3270 That`s like saying only Mark wahlberg can play Max Payne. PLEAUZZZE. LOL
@Egils3270 Sorry no Mel Gibson in this game! :D
(Unless they are planning to make a DLC Skin of Mel Gibson. :P )
@Egils3270 Looks like the guy from Last of Us to me..
@hystavito My Thoughts exactly lets hope and prey its going to be survival simulation or some form of open world but its not looking good with the above vid cars look way too light ......Christ i would be happy with a good remake of interstate 76 ...........
@Heisenberg87 I like all the examples you gave of why its a disgrace. Like that one where you said that thing.
