I think Barlog wrote it, maybe with Miller's help, or with a Miller's plot... Barlog spent years on this stuff, his input must remain one way or another.

Just saw the Mad Max Game trailer.

Am I the only person here who thinks that the people creating this game have never watched Mad Max and have absolutely no clue about what they're getting into?

Warning: Spoilers.

First of all...I highly doubt Max would for a second think about wasting a shell to put somebody out of their misery. Secondly...proceeding to drive over the guys head? Not his style...at all. Am I totally off base here??? WTF...

Max was pretty brutal in Mad Max 2 over the 2-3 days we only saw him. Who knows what else he did? We saw him ploughing through many cars with the tanker killing as many as he could, happy to set people on fire, shooting a couple of people in the head point blank and smacking a guy over the head with a pair of bolt cutters. What's driving over someones head who's close to death?

The game has to expand of what we only know and what he did in the movies or there wouldn't be much of a game.

I completely agree.
He is a loner survivalist. He'd never even stop for this "marauder" - let alone jeopardize his vehicle in putting him out of his misery.

croft007, this is all I've been able to find.

The New Mad Max Game Looks Great But…

Why does Max not have an Australian accent? Why is he American?

It’s something that’s been bugging me since I watched the E3 demo of the game yesterday.

Don’t get me wrong, Mad Max looks like a very well made video game. It’s an Avalanche game. It’s the open world you’ve been expecting. The intensity of the car combat feels very true to the Mad Max universe and it is most certainly a game that I would like to spend more time with.

As soon as the demo began I was waiting for Max to speak, because I was already a bit worried. Visually, Max retains a little of a young Mel Gibson’s facial features, but I found it troubling that a large part of bog-standard-male-video-game-man had been embedded into his DNA. I wanted to see how he spoke and with what accent.

It was a shame that bog-standard-male-video-game-man-voice was the sound that came out of his gob.

“We need to take out that sniper,” he said in the same gravelly voice used by almost every male video game character in the last decade.

He then said multiple other video-game-style tropey things throughout the course of the Mad Max demo, and it made me nostalgic for the original Mad Max character from George Miller’s movies. In Mad Max 2 in particular, Mel Gibson’s performance was a vulnerable one. He plays a man at ease with necessary violence but there’s a disguised softness to the way he communicates. There’s a calm cool to his delivery, but it’s a sympathetic portrayal, and I’m already getting the feeling that will be completely lost in Avalanche’s version of Mad Max.

It’s a shame, but in a world where every main character has to be a ‘badass’ and there’s zero room for subtlety, perhaps playing Mad Max with the same look and voice as every other video game on the market is inevitable. Perhaps it’s more marketable. I suspect it’s a change that many won’t notice or care about, but it bothered me. I can’t help but feel as though something has been lost.

The comments at that link are an interesting read as well. Hopefully someone at WB Games is reading them.

That trailer does a great job of setting the tone of the game, this is clearly about petty scavenging and remorseless brutality. It's a little showy and improbable, but well.. it's a game trailer.

I agree that the animation on the BoB is dire, and sadly that raises a huge red flag as to how much the developers care about the vehicle physics in the actual game.

But we need to focus on the positives, this doesn't appear to be full of the usual wacky race vehicles, abundant futuristic guns and semi-naked apoca-punk crap this genre usually gets. I'd say the developers are more inline with Mad Max than a significant percentage of the fan base.

Looking forward to see how they have tackled flame throwers.

Didn't these guys made the Bourne Conspiracy Game? It was and still is the only movie related game that achieve the feel of the movies.
