Mad Max: Fury Road is basically a feature-length car chase scene (albeit an excellent one). So it only made sense that when Cinefix made it into a retro video game, it would be a side-scrolling chase.
Of course, just like the movie, it has plenty of shoot-em-ups. The game makes Max the central character instead of Furiosa, and I don’t know if I like that or not. -via Boing Boing
