A post-apocalyptic setting, you know I love it. The plot is simplistic but "effective". There's nothing here that you haven't seen before but what is there is done well. This game came out years ago but at the time of this writing the movie Mad Max: Fury Road  came out a month ago and the look of the movie is very reminiscent of this game, in a good way. Sometimes I drove around in my Cuprino just to listen to the purr of the engine.
Whenever I think of this game I remember a specific moment: When I enter the Blue Line Station (an area about 2/3 through the game) during a mission I always come upon a single mutant who spawns in a non-agro state coming out of the bathroom. For some reason or another this lone mutant always spawns and never attacks me. He just comes out (hope he washed his hands) and slowly patrols the hallway. It throws me off everytime. Do I have to kill him? Should I? He's not threatening to me, not right now at least. Even if I block his path he doesn't attack, he just stops and looks at me until I step aside. This mindless shoot-em-up made me think about the morality of killing virtual creatures.
