Max Payne 3 – Review (360, PS3, PC)

7 September 2013
  • Excerpt: It’s been around 9 years since the industry has seen a Max Payne release. What has our favorite gritty, cynical, and self-angst ridden hero been up to since then? You guessed it, drinking himself silly and popping painkillers. Max Payne reinvigorated the third person shooter genre by infusing it with cinematic action, comic-book style cuts scenes, a strong narrative, and a bullet time feature taken straight from our favorite John Woo films.

Max Payne 3 Review

4 October 2012
  • Excerpt: Max Payne is a man who’s insanely uncomfortable inside his own skin. He’s still haunted by the death of his family, and in Max Payne 3 , his body—more so than any random member of Brazil’s criminal underbelly—is the target of his most vicious attacks. Booze. Pills. Booze. Pills. Booze. Pills. Perhaps the most self-destructive character gaming has ever seen, Max is a ticking time bomb of good intentions and life’s harsh realities.
  • Pros: Story’s well-done when it’s at its best; fantastic animations make shooting feel amazing; neat multiplayer ideas.
  • Cons: Story often secondary to shooting; difficulty spikes, bad checkpoints, and constant cover often frustrate; multiplayer lacks real hooks.

Max Payne 3 (PC)

  • Excerpt: Rockstar may make awesome games, but they’re also notoriously known for rather lackluster PC ports. Considering Max Payne 3 for the PC weighed in at around 30GB, people immediately feared the worst. They were expecting a rather bloated, clunky and troublesome game, but to their and our surprise, Max Payne 3 is one of the Rockstar’s finest PC accomplishments yet.

Max Payne 3 PC Review

  • Summary: This installment of the Max Payne series should have followed in the footsteps of Serious Sam: BFE. Could they have charged $60 for their product? Sure, but instead they went with a very fair $40 due to the fact that it wasn’t exactly designed to be a cash cow. Rockstar’s heavy promotion of a game on the same level as their AAA titles like GTAIV and Red Dead Redemption to a new audience most likely required a higher price point to recoup those costs.

  • Conclusion: I find it difficult to be overly critical about Max Payne 3. While it has a few missteps and lacks the semi tongue in cheek humor of the original games, I found that the experience of Max’s journey to be far more engrossing than I initially expected. This was a game I was ready to dislike when it the change in direction was announced, but in the end I just can’t stop talking about it.

  • Excerpt: There was a time when we thought a third Max Payne game was never going to happen. The original developers, Remedy Entertainment, had sold off the franchise rights, and the new owners, Take Two, didn't seem to be interested in making a sequel. And while the first two games saw console releases, they weren't great ports on PS2 and Xbox, so Max Payne was only ever really a beloved series for PC gamers out there.

  • Excerpt: This week I’ve been taking many a slow motion dive through Rockstar Studios latest bullet riddled adventure Max Payne 3.  With Rockstar having taken over the show for Max Payne 3 from the hands of the series previous developers Remedy Entertainment and also calling on the aid of Red Dead Redemption and Grand Theft Auto write Dan Houser to script the main story, instead of previous writer Sam Lake.

  • Excerpt: Rockstar Games sent over a code for the PC version of Max Payne 3 to see how it compares to the console versions. The look and feel is classic since I played the original Max Payne games on the PC. I felt right at home. Max has cumulated a following since the earlier games and fans are happy to see Max is back, bigger and better than ever. Max Payne our flawed hero still has some action left in him.
