AMad Maxgame from the folks behindJust Causesounds oh so very exciting. What sort of open-world antics might one get up to in the post-apocalyptic Australian outback? So far weve mostly gone on scraps and screenshots from the game named simplyMad Maxofficial site], but now a new gameplay overview trailer shows the sorts of shenanigans the reluctant hero will engage in.

Im a sucker for game footage set to an AC/DC soundtrack. I used to watch this obscure channel on Sky, Game Network, which would often take out of context gameplay footage and set it to completely unrelated, often tonally opposite, music. They had Kameo: Elements of Power set to AC/DCs Are You Ready and it workedfantastically. Shame the game ended up being terrible. HopefullyMad Maxofficial site] wont suffer the same fate, despite the new E3 trailer having AC/DCs Hells Bells as its soundtrack.

The makers of sandbox destruction classic Just Cause 2 + the quintessential movie wasteland setting? Yes please! Er, just one thing Could you maybe not involve Worlds Worst Human BeingTMMel Gibson? Itd kind of put a downer on things.Read the rest of this entry
Sometimes you just need to take a lot of screenshots of a games character ignoring the giant explosions going on behind him.We did this for Just Cause 2, and it seems that its happening all over again withMad Max. So, for your viewing pleasure, heres Max nonchalantly not looking at shit blowing up from a distance that really ought to be frying his bacon skin like bacon.

LacklusterMad Maxofficial site] presentations at previous games shows had led me to believe Avalanches open world shooter might be empty, fussy, dull. Then I played it and was pleasantly surprised: my 20 minutes of car combat were fun, exciting, and Im keen to return to it.
This is some kind of sick joke, isnt it?
The weekend crept up on us silently, catching us snoozing or distracted flicking through magazines. But now its here! Loudly! In our faces! And has brought a dog! Read on to be wholly surprised by which game many of us are playing this weekend, then why not tell us what youre clacking away at?

But enough about grappling hooks. A new trailer giving a teensy peek at Mad Max and its car combat also casually mentions a 2015 launch, which means plans to release Avalanches open-world post-apocalypse em up this year are set back. Thats fine. I can wait for a grappling hook.

Savage Road, the title of the newMad Maxofficial site] story trailer, is strangely similar to the name of that Mad Max movie that released recently. You might not have heard of it, it had kind of a subdued launch and response seems to have been a bit muted so far. Mad Max isso hot right nowand Avalanche Studios knows this, as theyve managed to make it just as fun as any of the Fury Road trailers, complete with guns and explosions and cars and arid wasteland as far as the eye can see. Which pretty much sums up the entire Mad Max experience. In a good way, I mean.

I had twin criteria for this. The first was is it a decent game? and the second does it meaningfully evoke the spirit, themes or characters of the movie in addition to having Quite Good Guns And Graphics? The second saw quite a few games which would otherwise qualify ruled out. This years Mad Max, for instance, was an agreeable murder-romp but its much harder to argue that it nails the desperation or oddness of the films its based on. Star Wars: Battlefront, meanwhile, is an OK online shooter with marvellous graphics, but its too mechanical to feel like Star Wars once you get beyond the spectacular presentation. Ah, feel. Thats the thing, isnt it? Does a movie game make you feel like youre a part of that movies wider world, or is it just wearing its skin?

I am quietly hopeful that well see a grappling hook inMad Max. Oh sure, probably not the truly wondrous grappling hook its developers Avalanche Studios put inJust Cause 2to fling enemies, cars, planes, and yourself around with gay abandon, but perhaps something sufficient for a little automotive japery. Theres cinematic precedent for Max and his foes tossing them about, after all, as you know whats useful when trying to catch and murder other people in cars? Grappling hooks.

There is one particular type of 7/10 game that heralds joy, not disappointment: the solid, maybe ever so slightly wonky action game with no interest in being anything more than a solid action game.
Watching the gameplay reveal trailer forJust Cause 3is like watching the ambitions of every guns, vehicles and explosions game made real. Its the ludicrously overblown action blockbuster that Uncharteds scripted events and cutscenes invoke. Its Far Cry with the stabilisers taken off. GTA V with many of the best mods you can imagine included as standard. It has sunk its grapple hook into my heart.
At what point in the market-o-rama before a games release are you content youve seen enough and will skip over it until you can play yourself? I like to get a broad sense of a game, see an interesting facet or two, then ignore it so I can discover the game myself and be surprised. Sadly, this job rarely allows that. The sacrifices I make

Seeing the four Mad Max films on Steam is quite a surprise, given that Valves moving picture offerings so far have mostly been small indie films and documentaries about video games. It helps that Warner Bros. distributed the movies as well as publishing the game, but still, coo, Fury Road! More than ever,I wish Steams films were games.

Im trying to work out what I think of the early hours ofMad Maxofficial site] through a fog of flu and headaches, which is something Id hoped might help enliven an interpretation of George Millers ultra-violent feverish post-apocalyptic peculiarity. Oddly, Im increasingly convinced that my fever is the closest this massive open desert world will get to capturing that distinct tone of the films. But what about the rest? The driving, the punching, the quest for silence?

We dont do scores on RPS, but sometimes we mourn for the inability to deploy a 7/10. The ur-score, the most double-edged of critical swords, the good but not great, the better than it deserves to be, the guilty pleasure, the bungled aspiration, the knows exactly what it is, the straight down the line. One score that can mean so much.

Its that question which most informed this list. I dont disagree that there are, in some cases, better games-based-on-movies if game is the foremost criteria, but these, in no particular order, are the ten games which most understood and even grew my appreciation for their subject matter, rather than simply piggy-backed it. (Additional FYI: I decided not to include any superhero games, reasoning theyre really their own thing rather than innately movie-based).

Following the glorious excesses of Just Cause 2, where a man can dangle a jeep from a helicopter and swing it like an explosive pendulum of doom into a dictators face, evenMad Maxcan seem a bit ordinary. I watched the trailer below feeling thatAvalanchemight have had their wings clipped a little. That said, its exactly what youd expect: big open world, full of vehicular violence and punches. Maxs double-barreled shotgun showers everyone in buckshot and fire, and cars flip at the slightest nudge. He also appears to have an awesome headbutt.
