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.

2.0 out of 5 stars More frustrating, less fun than its predecessors June 3, 2012
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.

Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Max Payne 3 tries to keep some of the feeling of the first two iterations while changing the style somewhat (e.g. doesn't have the graphic novel cuts, but achieves a similar effect). The graphics are quite good without demanding too much hardware and the audio lives up to the series. It is fairly gory, which makes sense in the game environment. The main problems are with control and interface, and a disappointing about-face from the second game.

This is, unfortunately, a console port, though not a terrible one. It's a real shame though, since the series is traditionally with PCs. Issues include the inability to save, the game having opted instead for a checkpoint system which, while perhaps necessary on the console, is awful and deserves none of the apologetic hand-waving that it gets from some. MP3 and other games could take a cue from Valve: checkpoints are good, but only as part of a system that includes a manual form of save. I can't count the times I had to replay an entire chapter because the stupid system 'saved' for me in the worst possible spot, and you can only start the chapter over when that happens. Irritating to no end. Additionally, I have a pet peeve: no game should stop you from quitting at any time, period. MP3 often does just that, during its many many cutscenes, which you can't skip. The game claims these are entirely for loading- it lies. Unfortunately Rockstar also put together MP3 in such a way as to prevent any real modding. For PC gamers who saw what the mod community did with MP1 and MP2, this is a BIG disappointment. Rockstar also missteps by consolizing the 'cheats' and forcing the player to unlock different modes... a cheap a pathetic way to up the hours spent on a game to play it the way you want.

Max also often acts uncontrollably.
