Pro Fun car combat
Mad Max' most prominent unique selling point is its car combat. Upgrading your car for performance and combat is the driving mechanic of the game, pun intended. You'll be scavenging scraps to upgrade engine, exhaust, armor, spikes, different weaponry etcetera. The combat will consist of ripping wheels of enemy cars with the harpoon (or pulling the war boys out of their cars), shooting fuel tanks with your shotgun, throwing thunderpoons at cars, setting enemy vehicles on fire with your side burners or simply ramming them.
Pro Intuitive melee combat
The melee combat is very similar to Arkham combat: You're outnumbered by warboys who take turns to attack you. You have a basic punch attack (holding the assigned button will make you punch harder), a parry skill + counter and a combat roll that serves as a universal evade. You do have a shotgun, but you'll never have more than 4-5 bullets on you, so save those for car combat. Melee weapons can sometimes be picked up from the ground, but they'll break quite fast. In other words: fist fighting is the focus of Mad Max melee combat. Getting a decent hit chain will make Max go into fury mode, pretty much destroying anyone in his way with his bare fists.
Pro Immersive atmosphere
This game has a very gritty, raw atmosphere with an open world that's a former seabed, but is now dry and barren. The game does a good job of making you feel alone and trying to survive. Friendship doesn't really exist in this world, just favor-for-a-favor understandings. Make sure you always have enough supply of fuel, water and ammo on you. The graphics in this game are superb. Also, remember that your character is not a hero and does not care for glory. He's just out for revenge and most importantly: his car.
Con Quite repetitive
This game offers a lot of different activities. Apart from its main storyline, there are a lot of camps to clear out, scarecrows and sniper towers to take down, convoys to destroy and minefields to clear. Along the road you'll be collecting parts to upgrade strongholds. There are also races you can participate to that each have a different concept. However, if you plan to do all these activities, you can easily keep yourself busy for 60+ hours. It does get repetitive, since the open world is divided in 17 different regions that each have the same sort of objectives, as previously listed.
Con Resources aren't scarce
The survival elements of this game that are meant to make this land feel hostile, are actually quite trivial. You won't really feel like you're in a troublesome shortage of water, fuel or even ammo at any point, definitely if you've upgraded one of the strongholds to automatically refill your supplies.
