Summary: While this game is fun at times it overall destroyed the Max Payne series. I almost think that they should of just left the series alone and not make a third game. I actually think the people who designed this game should be FIRED!!! Including anybody at Rockstar.
Summary: I don't normally write reviews but this game deserved to get bashed. It was on sale in the Playstation Store for 5 dollars so I decided to give it a try and I strongly wished I hadn't bought it. It's the old boring cliche plot of trying to save a girl blah blah blah.
Summary: Max Payne 3 is a game that could have been good had the technical problems been fixed. I don't understand how many critics have giving this game a high score. Given that some of the levels can be fun and intense, there are too many problems that make this even a good game.
Summary: I loved the first two Max Panyes. And was very anxiously looking forward to this one. I like the new direction, the graphics are excellent, and the voice acting is good. The controls, however, are awful.
Summary: Max Payne 3 is essentially Duck Hunt 2012 with swearing and long cut scenes. A good-looking, well-optimized game that follows this basic formula: cut scene, pop-up shooting gallery, cut-scene, follow arrows to pop-up shooting gallery, LOOOOONG cut scene, long shooting gallery, cut scene, end...
Summary: It's hard to spoil that kind of game - the recipe is simple and all one needs to do for a successful sequel is to follow it to the letter - but Rockstar managed to screw it up just fine. Boring story, boring gameplay, boring dialogue, and no graphic novels. Oh, and shaky camera. How novel! Yawn.
Summary: Why do I keep getting interrupted during gameplay for a cutscene. There is no way to become immersed if if every two minutes I'm stopped to watch cuts for sometimes longer than I just played. The gameplay is frustrating, the gun mechanics are not great, and the bullet time is way too short.
Summary: I loved Max Payne on the PC. I couldnt wait for this one to come out. Its terrible. The controls are not good. The interaction is not good. There is nothing good about this game. So disappointed.
Summary: FYI: LOVE (REPEAT X INFINITE) Red Dead Redemption - must have play it (and Zombie) multiple times!! Also really enjoyed the GTA series and original Max Payne game on PC. So.....see Max Payne 3 going cheap (I like to buy games 2nd hand or a year after release) and buy it.
