Max Payne 3
"So i guess i'd become what they wanted me to be"
Max Payne 3 takes players through poverty and riches in Brazil, and doesn't hold anything back. New and improved gameplay mechanics, thousands of animations in Max Payne alone, and realistic bullet entry and deaths, along with great sound, awesome graphics and shading, and a BIG lasting appeal, this game definitely "shoot-dodged" itself to number 1 on my list, and GOTY. Max Payne 3 features the most realistic gameplay i've seen, and a great targeting system. In other games you could shoot someone in the face, and their still moving. But in Max Payne 3, where you shoot them determines how they act and how they die. If you pepper someone with bullets, you can see the movements, blood, and animations. Shootdodge and bullettime are also back and better than ever, and i love when you kill the last man standing, as bulletime automatically comes up and shows every bullet entering that poor idiot. Sounds are great and grim as they unfold the tragic happenings of Max Payne's life, narrated by himself. And the soundtrack is original and intense. The story is the best one I've played through so far, fleshing out, going back in time to original max payne events, and even surprising you with an ending you would have never seen coming. Graphics highlight every detail, every crease in Max Payne's clothes (especially when walking) and every shadow. The lasting appeal is BIG, with multiplayer matches, arcade mode (complete challenges), unlocks, and even 5 different game difficulties that reward you with their own achievements. And the ending of Max Payne 3 will leave you in awe. Max Payne 3 isn't just some "Some rent-a-clown title with a gun who puts holes in other bad guys." It's an experience that you don't want to miss, it's also the most realistic shooter to date. I LOVED how the enemies died, because you don't see those animations, and realistic drops and wounds in a game. And all this is coming from someone who HATED the original Max Payne on the ps2. "You buy yourself a product and you get what you pay for, and these chumps had paid for some angry gringo without the sensibilities to know right from wrong." Luckily for those chumps, they bough an A+++ title. I highly recommend this game to you, your friends, and your family.
Max, dearest of all my friends....
After being announced all the way back in 2009, the folks at Rockstar have finally unveiled Max's return and a release date. It's seems that, even after the events MP2, Max is still has a terrible life and continues to dig himself deeper. A pal of his comes in and tells him "Leave this dump and come with me to brazil". He declines but then comes along anyway. After heading there, things go from bad to worse and we can already guess where this is going for Maxy. Despite the change in scenery and look for Max (this isn't the first time), I have a feeling it'll retain the feel of the first two. R* ( along with many different media outlets) have already confirmed that things like the comic book scenes, painkiller health, narration, dive shooting and slowmo all return. Sure there's a cover system, but they've said that's not the way to play it. On top of that, Max's voice actor from the previous two, James McCaffrey, is not only returning to voice Max but also do his mo-cap and was even remodeled to look like him. Despite Remedy not developing it, I think Max's return is in good hands and I can't wait to get my hands on this sucker.
Best Story Since Alan Wake!
Max Payne 3 is a gritty, story driven game. It is also a fantastic one. The story hooks you about three minutes in, and I immediately want to find out where the story is going. The campaign follows Max Payne, the most unlucky man on Earth. After moving from New Jersey to Brazil, Max finds himself dealing a protection job for Rodrigo Branco, a "Rich man, in a poor country". Let's just say that Rodrigo's wife is kidnapped, and that puts Max in a very sticky situation. This game has an amazing script. It is filled with metaphors and sarcasm. Max's narration is incredible, and it is constantly funny, and disturbing. The action in this game is spot on. It is extremely realistic and has no regenerating health. There are painkillers though. By the way, this make the game very challenging, and even on Medium difficulty, this game is extremely hard at times. Thankfully, the graphics help this. These graphics are amazing, and I didn't encounter one glitch in my entire playthrough. Overall, you should really buy this game.
Max Payne 3 Game of the freaking Year
I remember waiting for months to get this game and when it came out I walked from my apartment all the way to Gamestop on the first day of release to buy this and as soon as I got home I played it so much. I beat the campaign last month which wasn't too long ago obviously and it was epic!!! Of course I won't spoil any of the gameplay or story but seriously buy this game. I dove in slow-mo from the major epicness in this game well not really but I should of. Anyway the game is amazing and I can't wait until GTA V because that game is gonna be fun. Rockstar is my favorite gaming company I have beaten so many of their games The original bully, bully scholarship edition, Gta IV, Red Dead Redemption, L.A. Noire, and now Max Payne 3. Some of their games I've beaten more than once. Plus I own all the Max Payne games and the movie but is Max Payne 3 the best rockstar game no in my opinion Red Dead Redemption is but that's just me so buy this game and start using your bullet time trust me you will need it. 10/10
I am very dissapointed that I have to be writing this review. I thought this was game was going to be a lot better than it was. Now dont get me wrong...this is a good game when your acually playing it. I honestly sometimes feel like im watching a movie than playing a videogame. What i mean by that is there are way to many cutseens. Know it wouldnt be that big of a deal to me if you could just skip them like you can on most games but you cant on this one. When you try to skip it, it say " still loading" which means while it showing the cutseen, its loading up the next mission. But the cutseens are NOT short to me. They can be 1-3 minutes each. now you might not think thats not a lot of time but you have cutseens twice in each mission. (One in the begging and one in the middle of the misson) it can get very boring and honestly very frustraighting. I think the game is great but I wish they didnt have so many cutseens or if they kept them they would give the option to skip them.
Max Payne = Action,Thriller,Noire = classic game
Max Payne is scheduled for 8/1/2011. Lets hope they dont move the release date again hopefully no later than oct.2011 anyways lets talk about the game.First off max payne one was the best game this one looks good to and for everybody who is mad that he is bald well there is NEW screenshots and he has hair! so mabey he will have to cut it off at some point to discise himself from the enemy or police. Anyways the graphics look great havnt seen much else tho need gameplay vid and need to keep comic cut scenes or do something like Alan Wake did, Also make it bloody tell you the truth tho im just glad this game is coming out cant wait wish remedy was making or helping but that is ok rockstar makes some of my fav. games im sure they wont let me down need collecters edition for all the original fans and other than that just release it. till then ill be playing L.A. Noire : )
i recentley bought this game i believe last week i was skeptical because some people have said it was very dumb and stupid but they were not true max payne fans like me so i went and i played the campaign and i had a blast one thing i didnt not like about the campaign was the long cut scenes you cant not skip.it makes it feel like a movie it takes out alot of the action but the cut scenes are there for a back story basically.i would not recomend this for somebody who wants to get straight into the action.now for the multiplayer the game modes are fun but they get boring real fast and half the time there is bareley anybody playing. my final verdict is a 8.4 it has great graphics great story lineand some fun multiplayer!!! i would only recomend this to people who like watching the story of video games and who like a challenge because max payne 3 even on easy is very very hard so probably harcore gamers and casual gamers> hope this review helped.
Unbelievable. No joke, worth every penny!
Play it if you like GTA, Red Dead, Hitman, Just Cause2, Max Payne 1 & 2. Pure action at it's best! It's a game you have to play in order to know what anyone writing a review is talking about. There is a moment in the beginning of the game where he grabs a guy, shoves his way through a pane of glass and while floating through the air your shooting baddies in the head, arms, legs and watching their bodies react to each bullet, falling of dead weight. That was cool but when I finally landed and stood up and everyone was dead... I realized I stopped breathing and felt a rush of adrenaline that didn't let up as long as I played it. ABSOLUTELY killer game. Highly recommended. PLAY THIS for the pure action and shooting. This game was designed to allow the player to actually feel the bullet leave your gun and feel the impact of each bullet. PLAY IT. If you do, you'll be giddy as a school girl!
a few days ago i picked up max payne 3 because many people were telling me it was a great game, and wow they werent kidding. The story was great there were alot of missions each one with a great add to the story max is telling but be warned this game is not easy i played on medium and there were alot of times i was stuck on a mission , the a.i. is very smart and tactical so dont expect to go rambo and start running around like ur untouchable, the online play takes some getting used to but once u get used to it will be a great time with friends. IF YOU ARE UNSURE OF BUYING THIS GAME MY ADVICE TO U IS BUY IT! ITS DEFINATLY WORTH THE PRICE!
The Only Thing I Can Say About This Game Is WOW.
Now i've been a HUGE fan of the Max Payne Trilogy since the first Max Payne came out on the first xbox. With that said, I feel this game has met and HIGHLY exceeded my expectations. The graphics are ridiculous, the gameplay is ridiculous, the sounds, the EVERYTHING is ridiculous. I honestly feel like I'm playing a movie. The dialogue is really awesome too, making me laugh at Max's hilarious and abundant sarcasm. All I can say is regardless if you're a huge Max Payne fan or not, YOU WILL ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS.
