frustrating, not fun,
This review is from: Max Payne 3 [Download] (Software Download)
I bought this game out of nostalgia (good memories from max 1 and 2) but while the visuals in the new game are stunning Rockstar Games have bundled the game with "social network" meaning ANOTHER DRM that you have to install in order to play. And this is where the fun starts to disappear. First my login was not remembered and I had to enter it every time I tried to play the the game . I said tried as many times the login did not work (although my password was correct). Second, none of the DLC codes I got from Steam worked! I entered them many times to no effect. Finally, as mentioned by others you can not save when you want (the game has check points like a console port that it may well be) that brings even more frustration as you have to watch unsinkable trailers over and over again. If I wanted a console I would have bought a console. I have no time, sorry for this crap anymore.
If this is the future of gaming (DRM on top of DRM - Steeam already has its own DRM) thank you but no thank you there are better ways to waste my money.
