so I like them), and the gameplay is definitely different

Summary: I was a big fan of MP and MP2 when they came out years ago. I had been looking forward playing the 3rd opus... quite deceiving! It is somewhat easier, and the bullet time really lost it's original charm. I realized afterwards that the license had been picked up by rockstar (I used to play the GTAs, so I like them), and the gameplay is definitely different, more like GTA.
Summary: it's a ok game, think it woulda done better if it was set in nyc instead of brazil, even though some of the game you play in nyc, remind me to much of lethal enforcers for sega genesis though, but the pc version runs great, but hey 5 bucks
Summary: I know how triple A titles now want to create a cinematic experience in a lot of the action games, but MAx payne 3 does this in a very intrusive manner. The cut scenes are well made but they constantly take control away from you while all you want to do is some uninterrupted bullet time. I can't say it's not fun but at least for me, it didn't not capture my attention enough for me to finish the game.
Summary: Max Payne the game was once hailed as The Matrix of video games - with cinematic special effects, twisted story lines and the feel of a psychedelic masterpiece that begs the question of reality vs. insanity. Max Payne two delve further into the madness and deepened the dark, haunting world of Max and Co. I remember reading the comics interspersed throughout the game, and feeling satisfied on every play and replay session.
Summary: There are problems in using the product. Installation is not happening as per the given guide-lines. There are issues with download of patches for updation as well as requirement of login into the social club.
Summary: More of the same. The first Max Payne is still the best and this is a just a pale shadow riding on the coattails of the namesake. It is OK if you buy the game cheap and go into it knowing that it is another installment in standard-fare shoot-em-ups. The story is so weak and unbelievable it only exists to string the character from one place to the next and provide a reason for the next shooting engagement to happen.
Summary: Looks good and runs well on the pc, but its very shooting gallery. Console games are always like this - no feeling of strategy or meaning, just shoot a bunch of guys with very slightly different guns.
Felt like the same old Max Payne, which isn't really a good thing

Summary: I loved the first two Max Payne games, and this third one is more of the same stuff, but with way better graphics and a cool new, tropical setting. Unlike the first two Max Payne games, this one takes place in Sao Paolo, the largest city in Brazil. Despite the tropical locale, the game and the story are still gritty, and still feel appropriate for the Max Payne universe.
one of the better games of 2012, but quickly became dry

Summary: sandbox environment, good looking graphics, however sensitive on overclocked GPU. make sure if you run this game in an overclocked GPU, you feed it with enough juice. Edit: 7/7/2014 after playing it more since the original review. the game has gotten increasingly more and more linear and repetitive to a point of no longer challenging for the player. i've since stopped playing the game.
