Max Payne 3
This game was great, though it was frustrating at times, it never got to the point I wanted to stop playing. I cant think of anything seriously wrong with it, its a solid game that everyone should try.
You will want to be max payne.
This game is amazing. The plot and story line is really what makes it though as it is one of the best I have ever seen. Although I had not played the first two games of the series it was still pretty easy to follow along. I thought that the soundtrack and the sound effects were necessary and it kept me on the edge of my couch. I love the bullet time feature. I only used it in situations where I only had to take out an important person or a small group of men. The pain killers really helped me out as I was about to die in certain situations. But the real thing that amazes me is the way they portray and make Max Payne. He is unstoppable and can take out groups of fifty just by himself. It is fun being his character and you will be happy with the end result of the game as it brings closure to the whole story line. But I was upset because I wanted to play more. In some ways I wished it didn't end like it did because now there can not be a 4th made. All in all best game ever.
Max Payne 3
The Story: Max Payne's saga is a sad one as you well know if you had played the previous two installments. In this entry, Max has his rock bottom and he's a pill popping alcoholic. Rockstar knows how to craft a tight story and show some serious depth to characters. Max is no exception and his bleak story draws you in from beginning to end. His one liners and quips are also fantastic. He's a noir character through and through.
Graphics: The environments, character models and areas look amazing. All of them are highly detailed, always fresh, and a lot of fun to blow guys away in. The slums of Sao Paolo look particularly amazing. It's a really amazing set piece and Rockstar has delivered a beautiful games in spades.
Sound: The acting in the game is top notch, the characters all sound great, the action is intense, the music is cool and overall it's a strong showing.
Multiplayer: The multiplayer is fast, intense and really cool. The various loadouts you get to use really make for a variety of ways to play. The updated Rockstar Social Club is great for setting up your crew and checking out your stats. The multiplayer modes vary a bit as well, making for some different, fun experiences. This will likely be where the majority of people spend their time.
Bullet Time: It's back and it's still as cool as you remember. For awhile. Once the nostalgia and novelty factor wear off you'll find that it's sometimes easier to do things in real time rather than diving all over the place. I don't know if it was just me but the enemies in this have some seriously pinpoint accuracy and if you dive out, you either hit everyone and kill them of you're screwed.
Checkpoints: I found myself replaying a lot of areas after a stupid death because the checkpoints don't come as often as I'd like. I'm sure I'll get BETTER in time, but, it was still pretty annoying to do the same "super cool jump through the window into the kitchen" move three times.
Repetitive: The game is a linear shooting gallery through various locations. If the story/graphics didn't fall under "good" this would be a major blow to the game. There isn't a ton of variety, but, the strength of the story, acting, sound and graphics carry it though.
No Grenades: The bad guys get grenades. I want grenades.
GAME OF THE YEAR!
If you want a great shooter with an awesome story and a multiplayer that is very fun with a butt load of guns then i highly suggests tou pick up this game.
The game is so good but there is a lack of free roam thats the bad part but overall good game rockstar
this game is seriously the best game rockstar has ever made (next to red dead redemption). The graphics are insane, the shooting action is awesome, and the story to it is great. If you haven't played any max Payne game before, and you're thinking about getting this one, JUST GET IT. You won't regret it!
Off line great game on line do not buy it...
The games great to play off line but the on line is rattled with issues from not being able to kill other players to disconnects from host. There's little to no support and as like my self. I'm told the game is broken but we don't have a fix date. My game you cant kill any other player on line and they will not fix it. If you plan on buying this game please go to Rock Stars support and read all the issues every one who owns the game has. DO NOT BUY THIS GAME FOR ON LINE PLAY.
Max fun for gamers
This game is fantastic with a thrilling nail biting story mode and a hardcore action packed multiplayer. My favorite part of this game is by far the bullet time, it gives you the amazing look of a 3rd person game as well as the great aiming of a 1st person game! :D
Good.... But Not Game of the Year
It's a pretty good game, bullet time is fun and helpful when you're struggling in a certain part. Cut scenes get annoying since you have to watch them completely. Something else is that it takes quite some time to download, maybe it's my ps3 but i don't think so because its new.
This game is the best experience you'll have for 2012, and has amazing story mode and multiplayer. If you do not have this game, you are missing out.
