Sorry, but I have to add a comment as I strongly disagree with you on almost every count.
The issues you mentioned describe virtually every single game in the 3rd person / first person shooter genre.
Walk from area to area shooting every bad guy that moves. Thats exactly what you do in Gears of War, Bioshock, Crysis, Resistance and all the other great and highly rated shooters out there.
If you were looking for more interaction - you're probably looking at the wrong genre.
Max Payne 3 is not another Red Dead Redemption or GTA - and its not trying to be. Its a shooter.
Also your comments on the story leave me shaking my head in puzzlement. Borefest? Really? Can you name 1 TPS or FPS game with a more detailed story? Honestly I cant think of one.
The number of twists and turns at every corner in this game are crazy. Without going into spoiler territory - I mean just look at how Max was setup - who the enemy was etc. Have you even considered the sheer number of named/voiced characters with distinct personalities in the game? Theres over 30 of them - most video games normally settle for 4 or 5 max. (no pun intended)
You didn't mention the stellar graphics, exclllent soundtrack and voice work - sheer diversity of locations (seriously - have you played any other game set in Brazil?), incredible destructive environments, bullet camera, or the game length (longer than Max 1 & 2 together)
I could go on, but I think I've said enough.
If you dont like the game, fair enough, your opinion is as valid as anyone elses.
I just disagree with the statements you made about it, and think you were expecting something this game is not.
