1.0 out of 5 stars If you liked Max Payne 1 & 2: Don't buy this!, December 1, 2013
This review is from: Max Payne 3 [Online Game Code] (Software Download)
Welcome to a shooter-gallery that holds your hand and treats you like a drooling brainless!

I could mention and rage about the fact, that max payne took 100 steps away from his noir-feeling and awesome comic-strip-storytelling.
I could rage about his MTV-like flickering tranistions in the unskippable (!) chores of cutscenenes.
I could hit my head against the monitor after the agonizing account-hell called "Rockstar Club"(after denying my fresh created account-data it gave me some random name and let me wait for another 15 minutes. Although my steam account should be enough!?)

But I will start with the one positive thing in this Game:
The shooting.
It feels right, it is fast and challenging.
And it gives us a satisfying amount of gory killcams.

The rest of the game seems to give a shat about he player and puts a fishinghook through our nose to drag us from one flickering cutscene to the next.
Rockstar seems to think we are all brainless dumbsters. Too stupid to use a mouse and shoot at things.
Best and most hilarious example is the first (short) "Tutorial" that makes us read how we move the mouse and press the left button.
Seriously!
I couldn't believe how patronizing and blatant despising this looks.
WTF?! You think I am too stupid to shoot at things in a shootergame?!

And why do you have to force me watching your flickering cutscenes for people with the attention-span of a hyperactive toad?! I can't even wrap my head around this anymore. This is just a proof of a failing gaming industry that chums up with the brainless crazies that swarm like zombies into a black friday shopping riot.

I really don't know if I have to feel sorry for you or feel angry. In either way I hope you get bankrupt after the cod-kiddies that consume everybit of your "interactive entertainment" are bored once more and need another stimulating kick in their burnt up synapses.

Max Payne 3. A maximum payne in the....
