Very Good

Great Idea

This game had a lot of great ideas. I loved the idea of the "colored" coded weapons. Which is sort of like some of the mmorpgs like EQ2 or WOW with the rarity system. Also this game had tons of weapons just to start off with and some sick ones at that. I loved the idea of choosing your missions sort of like a GTA feel. The graphics were pretty cool looking also. It was pretty easy to learn the game and get to know your map and such. The tutorial was nice and it had a great feel of teaching you as you went. Those are the positives, on the negative side it was sort of hard to level up when you needed to (having to wait on enemies to spawn). Also some of the missions were kind of repetitive. Other than that I give this game an 8/10. It's definitely a must play!

Fun post-apocolyptic "Mad Max" style gam

This game is overall fun but not that ground-breaking or difficult to master. It probably won't hold your attention for very long.

There are lots of interesting weapons. The graphics have a comic-book feel to them that provides a cool aesthetic. The dialog from the various characters you encounter is humorous.

There is an overabundance of quest content but they are level-appropriate. The problem is, it is far too easy to level-up, and level-appropriate quests become trivial very quickly. Plus, there are a lot of useless quests or quests that are very similar in design. You get burned out on doing these quests relatively quickly.

That is the game in a nut-shell. Overall, I was more or less disappointed because I am huge fan of the Road Warrior, and I thought this game would be more of an homage to that movie.
