I've listened to a lot of the GB team say this game is terrible, has problems, and is a lot of the same of other stuff that has been put out. And i listened at first, I said I would not own this game because the site I look too said it was "lacking."
But I'm here to say they are wrong in my opinion, and I mean no offense by it. I don't get what the deal is with this game receiving such poor criticism. Yes I understand the backbone of this game has been done before, but not in this way. This game is Red Dead Redemption all over again, and I cannot count how many times I hear people asking for another RDD.
This is the first attempt at this type of game! Yes I hate the batman style combat, and yes the controls suck (at first), and yes the story line isn't the strongest. I will address each of these with my honest opinion, if you care!
1. The combat style can be fixed in the next game! I hate it, but I got used to it, and now after 20 hours in the game, i don't mind it! If this game gets a sequel I know they won't make the same mistake! I promise this game is fun!
2. Controls. Witcher 3 blew ass with controls at first and they fixed it! Yes WB studios has a horrendous history, but they are fixing mortal kombat and hopefully batman, but they know this is a problem! give it a chance!
3. Watch Fury Road. Watch it. And try to get an honest story line out of that movie. The main actor has less than 2 minutes of dialogue through the whole thing! The game? Sure we want it to be better, and I do too! but this game is not that bad! I seriously don't get why this game is getting badgered by GB so much! It's not THAT bad!
In the end, i hated this game in the previews and fell in love with it playing it. If you hate it, I understand and respect your opinion. But if you love car games, can put up with some bad controls (That might get fixed! Alex I also have blown myself up trying refuel cars!), and a little bit of a weak storyline, then give it a go! This game reminds me so much of Red Dead Redemption it's scary!
Anyways, i'm done. I will play this game. I have 28 hours in the game and I love it and just hate to see people dismiss it over what I think are simple things. If you buy a game called Mad Max, and know it's based on the movies it is, I hope you aren't expecting something more then what the movies are. Action.
