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.
Conclusion: Max Payne is the good person. He may be broken and bitter and praying for a way out of his miserable life, but he still does what needs to be done to save the innocent and protect the helpless. The loss of his family devastated him beyond belief but when there is a job to be done; as unpleasant and suicidal as it may be, he will get the job done. If you have never played Max Payne or, let alone this game, the experience alone is one for the generation.
Summary: Max Payne's home has always been on the PC. The original 2001 game and its sequel debuted on the PC, and though they received console versions--some of which captured the excellence of their PC counterparts and some of which didn't--it was on PC that he first made his mark. Times have changed for Max, and his latest outing hit consoles first and PC second, which may raise concerns about whether, this time around, it's the PC version that feels secondary and the console...
Pros: Tight, terrific gunplay that feels especially good with a mouse, Great writing, voice acting, and cutscene presentation, Detailed environments that get destroyed in spectacular fashion, Impactful sound design, Fun, chaotic multiplayer
Cons: Max's shootdodge maneuver is sometimes frustratingly ineffective
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.
Summary: 10 ans après, Max Payne, le héros le plus camé de l'histoire du jeu vidéo est de retour parmi nous. Aujourd'hui développé et édité par Rockstar Games, que donne le retour du plus charismatique des flics déchus ?
Pros: Art de la mise en scène, Réalisation vraiment propre, Ambiance sonore terrible, Multi efficace et complet
Cons: Le portugais sous-titré portugais, Difficulté parfois inégale, Retirez-donc l'aide à la visée si vous êtes des vrais !
Excerpt: Max efterligner sine John Woo-inspirerede helte perfekt. Når han fremlægger sin historie, males fantastiske vignetter af dødelig slowmotion, og man kan næsten føle kuglerne fløjte forbi ørerne.
