Max Payne 3 is the third release in the popular Third-Person Shooter series of the same name, and the first iteration of the series since 2003. Developed by Rockstar Games, the creative minds behind the cutting edge GTA, Red Dead and Midnight Club game franchises, Max Payne 3 features an older Max Payne with a new life and job abroad. But as dangerous situations spiral Max's life from bad, to worse, it seems that the more things change, the more they stay the same. Game features include: series first multiplayer functionality, a wealth of weapons, classic Max Payne Bullet Time and Shootdodge functionality, extreme realism and special bonus features.

The Return of Max Payne

For Max Payne, the tragedies that took his loved ones years ago are wounds that refuse to heal. No longer a cop, close to washed up and addicted to pain killers, Max takes a job in São Paulo, Brazil, protecting the family of wealthy real estate mogul Rodrigo Branco, in an effort to finally escape his troubled past. But as events spiral out of his control, Max Payne finds himself alone on the streets of an unfamiliar city, desperately searching for the truth and fighting for a way out.

2.0 out of 5 stars More frustrating, less fun than its predecessors June 3, 2012
By AM
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
When Remedy originally sold the Max Payne franchise to Rockstar, I was worried. The GTA franchise is a huge seller; let no one accuse Rockstar of not knowing how to make a popular game, but Max Payne had always been an extremely distinct, special experience, the kind of thing generally best left with the creators, I feared. The game is finally out, and my fears have been realized. There's no question Rockstar made a real effort; Max Payne 3 is absolutely not a quick cash in--but it's also not Max Payne.

Gameplay: Max Payne 3's gameplay brings bullet time along from the older titles. It basically has to; Remedy invented the mechanic way back in Max Payne. It defines the series almost as much as the noir atmosphere. It still works, but I find that it's less useful defensively than it was in previous iterations. In Max Payne 2, I could turn on bullet time and clear a room, coming up smelling like roses. In MP3, I'm as likely as not to come up smelling like the blood leaking from multiple holes in Max's body. Whether this is because I die more quickly, or because I kill more slowly (enemies seem to survive body shots more readily in Max Payne 3 than before), I don't know, but the end result is that I almost always have to save my bullet time for shootdodging. It's not a gamebreaker, but it detracts from the experience.

The difficulty on the whole is drastically higher than previous Max Payne games, something I've seen noted in more professional reviews. Getting shot HURTS. As it should, certainly, but the damage accrues far faster than in the past, and painkillers are MUCH less common. A medicine chest on easy in Max Payne 2 could have 4 painkillers. I've never seen more than two next to each other in Max Payne 3, and never had more than three at a time available.

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Max Payne 3 sees the return of the titular hero after a break of nine years. Remedy Entertainment, who made the first two games in the series, have moved on with their Alan Wake series of games, leaving Rockstar (best-known for the Grand Theft Auto series) to carry on their work. Whilst fans of the earlier games were dubious of this move, it was actually reasonably logical. Rockstar games often feature damaged protagonists trying to live better lives but being drawn back into a life of violence by circumstances, which is a perfect fit for Payne.

The game acts as a reboot of the series. References to the events of the first two games are minimal and, aside from a couple of flashback missions set in New York, the game is set in a different city in a different country with a very different culture (not to mention a different and un-translated language). The only constants are Max himself and, of course, his ability to slow down time to engage in combat.

Max Payne 3 is overwhelmingly impressive from a production values standpoint. The graphics are fantastic, with the game employing a vivid visual style. Keywords from conversations flash onto the screen and sometimes the action dissolves into line breaks and the colour desaturates, almost like you're watching the action on an old 1980s TV that is about to expire. The game's colour palette tends towards the bright and colourful, but there is a dark hue to everything. Sections set in crumbling warehouses or an abandoned hotel contrast the light and dark elements of the game's style. Animation is astonishing, with Max storing his weapons on his person and moving them around naturally to swap guns or take painkillers.

2.0 out of 5 stars How to ruin a great game August 17, 2012
By Bill C.
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been playing PC games since around 1991, well before Windows came out. The first Max Payne was a world changer, and MP2 was even better. With these games, I don't use multiplayer at all, so I can't comment on that part of it.
But for the Single Player, for me the game is ruined. First off, I don't like games that have no Player Saves. This one has way too many and too long graphics movie segment. In some places, all the movement from one scenario to the other is a cinematic set piece, so there is little problem solving necessary, which is part of the fun of these games for me. The player is then thrust into a shootout, without any familiarity with the locale.
If you like only the shooting part of FPS games, you'll likely like this game. If you like a complete game experience, including solving the problems of landscape and strategy, they've removed most of that from the game. It's a shame.

3.0 out of 5 stars A pretty good game, but loses some the series' appeal. September 12, 2012
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
I'll be honest. I'm not that great at shooter games, particularly those that require tactics more complex than "shoot them before they shoot you", so I can't really tell you how well each of the new mechanics work, but I'll do my best.

It many ways, Max Payne 3 stands above it's predecessors. The environments are diverse, and downright gorgeous. I was amazed by how many things in the environment individually shatter when hit by bullets. There are also several special situations where you automatically enter bullet time from a unique position and have to try to take as many enemies down as possible before Max lands. He's also much more over the top than he used to be, and some of the stunts he pulls are incredible.

But despite how much more impressive the game is, I can't help but feel it's a bit too different from the preceeding games, and no longer has the same appeal.

I was fine with the addition of cover, but I was hoping that it would supplement the main game play, not replace it. It's true, in the first games you still had to be a darn good shot, and walking into a group of enemies would get you killed, but it was still a run-and-gun style, and I think the focus on cover slows down the gameplay. Speaking of, Max's movements don't feel as fluid as they did in the second game (which in my opinion, controlled like an absolute dream.)

It's common in games nowadays, and it's purly preference, but I didn't like the limited inventory system. I don't think it fits the Max Payne style of play, and it can be frustrating when you feel like you don't have much margin of error when it comes to using your ammo. Sometimes I wonder if there'll ever be a game that gives you the choice to have a limited or unlimited inventory.
