Okay. Sooooo...

mmh.

On one hand, this is a perfectly good free-roaming open-world explore-em-up. Lots of missions. Good car combat. Punch people in the head and german suplex them until they die. Physics. This is a good game. There's a lot to be said about the sense of isolation it manages to build, the long desert wasteland stretching out in all directions, etc. I could get in there and analyze stuff like that to death but I don't care or want to, because on the other hand...

On the other hand, like... all the really good stuff about Fury Road or hell, Beyond Thunderdome ... not so much here. Max is a sad person who bridges the gap between the past and present, so he's driven by inner demons and horrors, including the memory of his dead wife and child. This wasn't enough, however, so we bring in a second woman and child, have him hallucinate marrying her, and then kill THAT woman and child so he can be REALLY EXTRA motivated.

Dear writers: Stop that please.

So I enjoyed this except for the part that made me want to facepalm my skull out the back of my head.

Really nice driving though.
