I know, Metal Gear Solid V came out last week, but that game is long and I feel like we all need a bit more time with it. Let’s talk about the other major release of last week, Mad Max.
Mad Max received mixed reviews. Not necessarily a bad thing. Often the most interesting games will receive mixed reviews; usually the kind of games you either love or hate.
And a lot of people seem to really love Mad Max. My social media feed tends to oscillate wildly between people who think it’s dull and uninspired to one friend who claimed it was the most fun he’d had with a AAA game in a couple of years.
So which is it? I’m not too sure. I haven’t had much time with it at all. My feeling is that it’s just too ‘video gamey’ for me to find it super interesting. By that I mean it’s all ‘upgrade your gear, customise your car’. That kind of thing tends to fall flat for me.
I still intend to play more of it but, for now, it’s all about Metal Gear Solid V for me.
