Ok so it's been some years since i've played the first max payne and it was really a hit and miss with some people. I feel that the first one was great but to frustrating so i stopped playing it and didn't even attempt a try at max payne 2. Now Max payne 3 has a great story but it is true some of the people are just kind of there and not real important, and the boss fights are a little to easy. I did enjoy this max payne compared to the ones in the past. It handles the way i would want it too and the fight scenes are great. I would however not buy this game, it is a good rental but after you beat it you don't really want to go back through it,unless of course you want to collect all the gold gun pieces. I didn't try the online, because games like this don't appeal to me to play via web, seems kind of pointless? Overall this was a great game and would like to see a max payne 4 in the future that handles like this one did.

Very cinematic. kinda cut scene heavy I'm sure everyone knows and the free aiming was extremely hard. the aiming should be constant. but other than that, great storyline, very entertaining, and very culturally sound.
Max Payne 3 is a very good game. The gameplay of slow motion bullet fights are awesome. The story and characters are interesting. The game is pretty gruesome which is something you expect from this series. The single player is huge, you be fighting in many different areas from narrow to big landscapes. I only rented the game for single player and so I didn't play the multiplayer. The only beef I have with this game is the stupid blur screen effect that happen throughout the whole game. It gets very annoying. Overall, the game gets a 9. Great controls, cool story, and max payne is still a cool.
