Max Payne 3 Local Justice DLC

impulsegamer
1 July 2012
  • Excerpt: For those that just cannot get enough of Max Payne 3 which will more likely receive the Game of the Year Award from not just Impulse Gamer but several gaming publications, Rockstar have released their latest DLC for this game. This DLC is the Local Justice add-on that includes three new multiplayer maps, a new power-up and even a new weapon which is quite affordably priced.

Test Max Payne 3

Generation NT
10 June 2012
  • Conclusion: Max Payne 3 annonce un retour réussi de la franchise. Le passage entre les mains de Remedy à celle de Rockstar se fait sans encombres et l'éditeur a su traiter avec respect et fidélité la série. Les fans retrouveront donc un héros dans ces plus mauvais jours, mais terriblement aussi doué de la gâchette. Avec son action enlevée et immersive, ces cinématiques toujours captivantes, Rockstar nous propose une aventure hors du commun.
  • Pros: Une réalisation très réussie notamment dans la mise en scène, Séquence de gunfights très percutantes, Une VO efficace, Des cinématiques captivantes, Un multijoueurs inattendu, Le niveau de difficulté
  • Cons: L'IA des ennemis en solo, L'affichage trop petit des sous-titres, Une omniprésence de cinématiques qui peut déplaire

  • Conclusion: It's not perfect but it is more than good enough to be one of the best titles so far this year. Few games make me want to rush into a second playthrough yet MP3 did. With some patches and tweaks the multiplayer could be the best of the year, too.

Review - Max Payne 3

Game.ie
21 May 2012
  • Summary: After almost a decade, Max Payne is back, popping caps in fools and complaining about it. But has the genre moved on? Some years after the less than happy events of Max Payne 2 , the title character has shipped out to Sao Paulo, working private security for a local businessman on the recommendation of former NYPD colleague Passos.

  • Excerpt: Max Payne, whose name and disposition are particularly well-suited to a videogame action star, is back after an extended sabbatical, and things have changed for the grizzled and cynical hero. He’s got a new look, a new job, and new hands crafting his fate with Rockstar taking over for original developer Remedy. Does the third part in this hardboiled saga deliver the right kind of Payne?

Max Payne 3 review

Gamedot
30 May 2012
  • Conclusion: It’s always easier to point flaws in an established series, especially one with such rose tinted spectacles as Max Payne, but it really is an engaging and well made experience. Sure, you’ll be frustrated at the bullet sponge enemies towards the end of the game, desperate to hit the head-shot, but I’ve enjoyed it enough to warrant attempting the hardest difficulty play through, just for the sheer satisfaction.
  • Pros: It's Max Payne. Beautiful production quality, and plenty of reasons to keep playing.
  • Cons: Irritating visual style. Some moments are joypad throwingly impossible in harder difficulties.

Review: Max Payne 3 (PS3)

Techtree
21 May 2012
  • Excerpt: Like its contemporaries, Rockstar has woven the plot with elaborate set pieces and UNCHARTED 's brand of dizzying cinematic flair . Unfortunately, Payne's next-gen outing has way too many cutscenes interrupting the gameplay far too often. The newer UNCHARTED games do the same thing, but in moderation and also while holding player interest. MP3's car chases, explosions, and plot twists are exciting beyond doubt, but they aren't as cohesively integrated.
  • Pros: Polished to perfection; Spectacular set pieces; Impressive animation and physics; Excellent graphics; Generous level diversity; Fluid framerate; Top-notch sound effects.
  • Cons: Lacks the distinctive Max Payne feel; Some combat sequences are repetitive; Too many interruptive cutscenes; Feels a tad too long; Max comes across as a whinier version of John McClane (Bruce Willis in the Die Hard movies).
