At first, you may just see a (pretty) Dragon Quest clone, but this game actually sounds cool from all the stuff people say about it. You’re a Monster Hunter, which isn’t what it sounds like.. You hunt down monsters and kill them, and collect the bounty on them. Sweet, right? You can also amass a fleet of vehicles to drive around and stuff. I haven’t played it much (well, at all) so I can’t exactly elaborate. Trust me though, it’ll be cool when it’s in English.
This is a complete English translation of the original Famicom version of Metal Max.

Completely amazing translation from start to finish!Reviewed By: P41R47 on 28 May 2021
Metal Max was the dream I always wished and never knew back when I was a child. Now thanks to Supper, TheMajinZenki and cccmar, this dream become true.
The translation is perfect without any garbled line or error, at least, all the text was perfectly readable and understandable without problems. There is a little flickering on the detailed status screen of the tanks, but i don’t know if it is a thing of the translation patch or if that happened also on the original game. Aside from that, nothing to say, and as this is a minor aesthetic problem, i don’t think there is a reason to fix it.
About the game? well, its probably the best traditional JRPG that I played in a very long time. Far better than any Final Fantasy crap, and slightly better than the early Dragon Quest games. The only thing that could make this game better is a changing job mechanics and different kind of vehicles to use aside from the tanks. Maybe the possibility to add a racing minigame would be awesome. But that is something to think for a fan game.
So tl;dr this translation is perfect and this game is pure open ended traditional JRPG with tank customization on a post-apocalyptic desert and destroyed landscape setting. Kinda what you get from mixing Mad Max, with Terminator’s lore, and customizable tanks. Perfection!
Now I would love to see this team making a translation of Metal Max 2 for the Super Famicom, the only game from the early Metal Max’s games that is still untranslated.
