About
20 March 2015
  • Summary: Max Payne 3 is pretty much the same game that Max Payne fans remember. Despite a 9-year gap between games and a totally different developer from the first two titles, Max Payne is still dark and gritty and violent and all about shoot-dodging your way through hordes of enemies.

Killer Instinct Review

Xbox 360 achievements
18 November 2013
  • Conclusion: Killer Instinct is by and large a more than satisfying return for a fighting series that's been left on the shelf for far too long. As a modern fighting game, it manages to hold its own against more seasoned stablemates, thanks to its accessibility and hidden depths.

Max Payne 3 review (X360)

HonestGamers
15 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Things change, and we have to accept that. Max Payne has moved from the endless falling snow in more ways than one, leaving behind his Nordic developers and residing instead in a universe dominated by sandbox adventures, hot coffee controversy and table tennis.

VGChartz
7 July 2012
  • Excerpt: Much like when a well-known film series gets a new director, there’s always a little risk involved when a familiar game franchise switches from its original developer to new blood.

Game Debate
15 June 2012
  • Excerpt: They call it emergent gameplay. This idea that there is only the game, and what you do with it is up to you. We call it a sandbox. It can be anything from a real, open-world, freeform game with player-defined goals like Sim City or Crusader Kings 2 , or a scripted, player-driven experience like Deus...
  • Pros: Fast-paced, Faithful to the original, Yet with a new take
  • Cons: Linear, A little buggy

Max Payne 3 is a glimpse into the future of video games (review)

VentureBeat
12 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Max Payne 3 was meant to be a new chapter in the life of the titular former NYPD detective, who left New York behind to become a bodyguard for Sâo Paulo’s richest family. But while publisher/developer Rockstar’s attempt at a meaningful story may ultimately fall flat, its revolutionary method of...
  • Pros: A seamless interactive story Even in a game as seemingly pedestrian as Max Payne (story, shoot, story, shoot, story, shoot…), Rockstar has crafted a very technologically impressive experience. From the menu, the single-player story mode starts instantly, launching into the opening cutscene. From ...
  • Cons: U sad, bro? Max Payne 3 is set eight years after the events of Max Payne 2, but it’s been over a decade since thugs murdered Max’s wife and child. Yet he can’t. Stop. Talking. About. It. Perhaps if the game didn’t follow previous developer Remedy’s patented inner-monologue stylings, we wouldn’t k...

Max Payne 3 Review

PlayDevil
7 June 2012
  • Summary: " Max Payne 3 " is without a doubt the worst Rockstar game for years. That’s not to say by any means that the game is bad though! It’s probably too long for its own good, and the multiplayer feels a bit tacked on.

  • Excerpt: It wasn't going to end well. As we are reintroduced to Max Payne we hear him promise himself a new life, away from the history of his past. A promise quickly thrown against the walls, drowned in drink, and numbed away with painkillers. Welcome back, Max.
