Max Payne 3 is the Third Installment in Rockstar Games Max Payne Series & is set 8 years after the Events in the Last Installment. No longer a Cop, Max is close to washed-up, drunk & addicted to painkillers. Without a job on The Force, Max has left the greater New York Area, & finds himself in San Paulo, Brazil working as Private Security. Remedy Studios may be Developing Max Payne anymore but that doesnt stop Rockstar from Publishing/Develop it. The story of Max's decent from vengeful, leather-jacket wearing Detective roaming The Alleys of New York to the broken, shaving-headed man out for Justice on unfamiliar streets far from home is at the center of Max Payne 3. The Story is Phenominal, Voice Acting is Terrific especially hearing James McCaffrey returning to voice Max Payne himself. The Orchestra Soundtrack gives Max Payne that Ballet/Noire touch like always & Art Design is Fantastic. Combat System has improved but can be a bit of a hassle for those new to the Series. Weapon System has upgraded so now you can mix & match weapons for that action movement style. Also added to the Series is Full Squad-On Multiplayer & with The Rockstar Social Club you can create your own Crew/Squad & invite them
to take on other Crews in the many Matchmakings of Max Payne 3. In addition to Max's classic shoot-dodge moves, there is now a combination of Natural Motions Euphoria character system & Bullet Time to enhance his moves. Partners & Sidekicks will play a large role in this game to help Max in his quest for Vengeance. Max Payne Veterans will be sure to enjoy the Sequel we have waited 9 years for, while newcomers may have a hard interest in the Series. All in all this Game/Series lives up to its hype & Rockstar delivered. Max Payne 3 gets a 9 out of 10.
