Max Payne 3

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Nearly a decade has passed since Max Payne last brought his brand of violent street justice to a dark and unjust world, and videogames have changed dramatically in this time. And Max has changed with it, under the new direction of Rockstar Vancouver who are contributing the first game in the series not created by originating studio Remedy.

More Payne, More Gain

GIN

  • Excerpt: With almost a decade since his last spotting in Max Payne 2, I was beginning to think that the hardboiled ex-cop everyone knows and loves was dead. But he's back now, a little older, but not much wiser. Rest assured, he's still the Charlie Sheen of video game heroes, boozing and popping pills, and brilliantly flailing through life in a drug-induced haze. Add in lots of guns, and you pretty much have Max's world down pat.

Max Payne 3

Gaming Evolution
19 July 2012
  • 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.

Max Payne 3 review

GamesRadar
27 June 2012
  • Excerpt: There’s a fantastic moment halfway through Max Payne 3. The titular hero has reached his boiling point, shaved his head, and gone underground into Sao Paolo’s gritty favelas. Things are looking down. A local gang has robbed him of guns, watch, and even his sunglasses. He’s been kicked into a ditch full of trash and sewage.
  • Pros: Gunplay that's updated and well-executed, Outstanding presentation and setpieces, Fun multiplayer designed to keep you engaged
  • Cons: Checkpoint system warps pacing in later stages, Sometimes, mechanics work against you, Plot may feel predictable to some

  • Excerpt: Rockstar Games and I do not have a good history together. I am not a fan of sandbox games (a couple of exceptions do exist for example Sucker Punch's inFamous and Radical Entertainment's Prototype 2), for the most part, I cannot play them. Unfortunately, a large majority of Rockstar's library includes such sandbox titles; but the developer has nonetheless taken over the Max Payne series from its former team, Remedy.

Game Over Online

  • Excerpt: Everything about it is well-made - music, graphics, environments, characters, most of the plot, dialogue, models, gunplay, controls - but there are a few strange decisions that bring the entire package down. Max Payne 3 is about 90% awesome.

Max Payne 3

DarkStation
22 May 2012
  • Conclusion: This game is almost unrivaled in its realistic third person action and does an amazing job of continuing the Max Payne fiction. With the return of the iconic voice over and nonstop action It’s nice to see Rockstar continuing to push the bounds of its franchises and Max Payne 3 is yet another example of this.
