Interesting way to make a game, 1 part movie, 1 part 3rd person shooter, I guess it works but I haven't encountered anything in Max Payne 3 that wasn't done better years ago in the original Max Payne. The visuals are of course amazing, sometimes almost looking real but other than that I don't see the need for this game. The multi-player surprisingly isn't too bad. But basically you run around looking for the big bright health bar hovering over the head of an opposing player and shoot at that. The whole clan thing or whatever they call it looks cool and you can carry it over to GTA5 not that I'm wasting anymore money on one of those games.
Score - 6/10
I'm a huge fan of the series and am loving mp3 - incredible work. One of the top games of all time in my book. amazing game. great voice acting, great writing. the combat is fantastic and the bullet time is beyond cool. just a great time from start to finish. i never play sp games over again but as soon as i beat it, i'll be going again. i think a lot of players are just using bullet time in cover and popping out to take down enemies or playing mostly in real-time. don't do it. shot dodge all over the place. kill with style, in glorious slo-mo while flying through the environments - that's what this game is all about. very little to improve on and a 10 in my book - easy game of the year for me so far. enjoy.

I received MP3 from my rental list the day of release, which was very nice being it usually takes 2-3 days from the date shipped on the gameQ. The downfall was in the 2nd disc. Brand new game disc unreadable, not a xbox360 disc it says lol. It failed to give me the achieve for beating the game on hard and medium. Takes about 10-20 disc tray open and closings and ONLY level 8 will finally spin the disc and thats how i got to experience the 2nd disc. I refrained from sending the disc back through shipping problems because of the low availability. Otherwise the game was great, 8 out of 10. If only they would have had one level with the baby crying in pitch black walking on a glowing line. gamertag: SplitHeadlesBum
