If you love to simply insert bullets into flesh, this is a must buy.,
This review is from: Max Payne 3 - Xbox 360 (Video Game)
People can bicker all day long about what makes a video game, "fun", and I'll leave you guys to keep doing that. I am here to give you my very brief opinion on Max Payne 3.
If anyone out there is more like me, meaning, you absolutely love shooting humans (not aliens) with guns (not outer-space lazers) then hear me now: No other shooter on the planet will give more satisfaction than Max Payne 3.
1) Enemy bodies and how they react to the bullets is the best i've ever seen in a video game. Most realistic to date, in my opinion.
2) With the music turned off (which i almost always do in video games), the gunfire sounds, environment damage from bullets, enemy gunfire, etc is "hard-hitting & pacts a punch". Sound is huge to me, and May Payne 3 delivers.
3) Bullet-Time/Dodge + minor cinematic slow-mo's of deaths to showcase some brutality. Simply fun to see, and adds that final layer of "hell yea" to the experience.
From just a pure "shooting guns" experience (single player), this is the cream-of-the-crop. Everyone else can keep your COD's and ultra-hollywood "set-pieces, i'll take a more mature-feeling, raw-hitting, powerful & gritty, gory "balls to the wall" shooting experience in Max Payne 3 any day of the week.

Thank you, this is definitely the game I'm looking for. I've been playing GTA 4 for the longest time simply because i have the most fun killing "people" ingame NOT any other creatures or robtic beings, and with simply regular GUNS not laser cannons and plasma rifles. I've love the effect of people reacting relistic when getting hit but ive played it too long and hopefully this game well be as good or even better :)

I find your review to be a bit pretentious and over punctuated. With that said you're doing yourself a huge injustice by turning the music off. It's not so much music as anaglyphic rhythm set to the anxiety of the environment. It doesn't inhibit the gunfire or environment any of that, it compliments it.

I really hope you didn't keep the music off for the entire game, because Max Payne has one of the best soundtracks in recent memory.

How is this the top review? What about the continued story line from the previous two games in the series? What about the multiplayer? Sound is huge to you, but you turn the music off? All i gathered from this review was you like shooting people and you're not a fan of the sci-fi genre. Thanks.

I don't have a problem with shooter games, I own many. But I do have a problem with people that think it's fun to shoot people, they have a mental issue.
