Compared to other games on the system, Max’d isn’t one of the system’s gems. Visuals are about average and aren’t something you would use to show off your Xbox, but they still get the job done. Character models are culled from the same basic models with their only real difference being different colored suits or facial features. However, Max’d is one of those cases where the gameplay actually makes up for the lack of visual glitz, so it is easier to forgive the lack of detail.
Sound features as much flash as the graphics. Voice acting is really good and it is a good thing too, since communication is one of the core aural elements to the game. The soundtrack features a number of licensed tracks, though none really jump out at you as being particularly noteworthy. But, the lack of “known” names isn’t necessarily a bad thing as what is there fits with the game.
