From the Manufacturer

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.

Featuring cutting edge shooting mechanics for precision gunplay, advanced new Bullet Time (R) and Shootdodge (TM) effects, full integration of Natural Motion's Euphoria Character Behavior system for lifelike movement and a dark and twisted story, Max Payne 3 is a seamless, highly detailed, cinematic experience from Rockstar Games.

In addition to an expansive single-player campaign, Max Payne 3 will also be the first entry in the series to introduce a thorough and engrossing multiplayer experience. Max Payne 3 multiplayer brings the same cinematic feel, fluid gunplay and sense of movement of the single-player game into the realm of online multiplayer. Using the fiction and signature gameplay elements of the Max Payne universe, Max Payne 3 features a wide range of new and traditional multiplayer modes that play on the themes of paranoia, betrayal and heroism, all delivered with the same epic visual style of the single player game.

A feature debuting in Max Payne 3 and carrying over to Grand Theft Auto V and future appropriate titles is Crews, which go beyond traditional online clans by allowing players to join large public Crews or simply create a private Crew that members can customize. In this way, Crews help players keep the fight alive from match to match - and even across titles - through the Rockstar Games Social Club, which will keep track of Crew stats, including Feuds.


  • Developed by Rockstar Games for a seamless, highly detailed, cinematic experience
  • Advanced Bullet Time and Shootdodge and Final Kill-cam mechanics for stylish shooting action
  • Cutting edge aiming, targeting and animation processes for precise, fluid gunplay
  • A dark, twisted story chronicling the return of Max Payne, one of the most iconic characters in videogames
  • Tight integration between Natural Motion’s Euphoria Character Behavior System and a brand new iteration of the Rockstar Advanced Game Engine (RAGE) for lifelike movement and a new level of environmental awareness
  • A wide range of weapons rendered in incredible detail: hammers cock back, shells eject from the chamber and each bullet is individually modeled from the split second it’s fired to the moment of impact.
  • Advanced particle physics and destructible environments set the stage for dramatic and chaotic gun fights
  • New to the series, a compelling and addictive multiplayer experience to match the dark and relentless atmosphere of the single-player game
  • Retired Feature: Online Multiplayer for Max Payne 3 on Mac will no longer be available in-game as of 5/31/14.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rockstar delivers! August 27, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download - Steam DRM| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
I never doubted a Rockstar game on its surface, but after the question port of GTA4 to pc I was ready to be disappointed, but that feeling never came.

Gameplay features a third person view, a variety of guns (of which you're only limited to 2 at a time) and the series staple 'bullettime'. I enjoyed the camera angle (which I commend for allowing the player to switch from left shoulder view to the right side with a button press, too many 3rd person shooter don't allow that and I hate that). Gunplay is fun, but a tad stale. Once you've shot a virtual Ak you've shot them all. I also very rarely used the bullet time, I found it a tad frustrating to aim whilst in mid-air.

Storywise it does a great job wrapping up the 10+ year legacy of Max Payne games, and for those they haven't played a game in the franchise before you won't feel lost. The narrative fills in the player on past events very well, and stands on its own merits just fine.

Visually the game is impressive and very detailed. Just looking around Max's apartment for the first time you can see the care and time that went into its creation.

I would highly recommend this to any fan of shooters,story lovers, or Max Payne follower.

4.0 out of 5 stars Old School Max Payne meets modern gameplay July 29, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download - Steam DRM| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
I have played the original two Max Payne games. This is not more of the same. But, it does keep enough flavor of the original games that fans of the originals can get something out of it and enjoy the world and story. The slow mo bullet time never gets old (even after all these years).

The locales are well-realized (from Brazilian favela's, to corporate office buildings, to fancy yachts). I have always enjoyed Max;s hard-boiled, fatalistic narrative. Since Rockstar is the publisher, the production value is high and the music is great.

The gameplay is adequate if you are into the story. Otherwise, the game does suffer from occasional repetitive gameplay and sometimes gimmicks.

Finally, maybe I didn't play the game the way the developer's intended, but I found myself using Slow-mo dive shooting a whole lot more than crouching behind cover.

Again, if you are a fan of the Max Payne series, or have heard about it and want some of that in a modern game, this is a recommended buy. I see the game regularly discounted, so at a reduced price this is definitely a buy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Alright I guess, but too "shooting gallery" December 3, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download - Steam DRM| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Looks good and runs well on the pc, but its very shooting gallery. Console games are always like this - no feeling of strategy or meaning, just shoot a bunch of guys with very slightly different guns.

Got about halfway through and got bored

5.0 out of 5 stars Would be a "shayme" to not try Max Payne! February 11, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download - Steam DRM| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
This game is very much unlike most games I've played.
It feels more like an interactive movie, than a regular game, to me.
That's not a bad thing, in this case. There's plenty of hands-on action to keep pulling you into the twisted world of lies, deceit, drugs, and murder, that is Max's world.

This is a guy who has been through a lot. And it seems like he just can't catch a break, when the world around him seems to just continue to crumble away, not knowing who to trust.

Fantastic story, lots of replayability, gorgeous graphics, movie-quality cutscenes and voice work.
I also appreciated the ability to replay sections of the game, since I died.... a lot.
But it doesn't make you feel bad about dying. (I guess, maybe it depends on what difficulty you're playing on. I played more toward a normal, casual difficulty. Call me a lame-o.)

If you're looking for something fresh and exciting, check this out.

Upon re-installing Max Payne 3 I'm given an error message that my game is linked to another email account. Problem is, I only use one email,. I've reset my password and screwed with it until becoming completely exacerbated. I bought the game digitally on Amazon and play it through Steam. This is day 6 of trying to play the game I paid for. Calling Rockstar leads to my phone calls being hung up on, and after making a second post as advised for support issues in their support forum they deleted my comments which DID NOT violate the posted rules and banned me. Wow, what customer service. Unbelievable. I also filed a direct ticket to have them solve their problem so I can use the product I paid for, but no response. They can take the time to ban and delete my comments, but not answer me. I've filed a complaint through the BBB but don't know what other recourse I have. Class action lawsuit of other people who cant access the product they purchased? I'll never make the mistake of purchasing another product from Rockstar. We are much better off pirating everything. At least the pirates have some self respect and try to please the people they post for.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dissapointment when compared to past games. April 7, 2015
Platform for Display:PC Download - Steam DRM|Edition:Standard
I really enjoyed some of the game play in past Max Payne games, but this one was a waste of money and a true disappointment. This game is not much more than arcade style shooting gallery with a few cut scenes. You can not use some strategy like in past games as you are set up for failure even when using all the features. The game is incredibly difficult from the beginning and I spent more time loading it after being killed than playing it. After two hours I quit. The only positive thing I can say is that I did not waste money buying it brand new when it was originally released so not as badly ripped off as I could have been.
