Max Payne 3

I have played both the first and second games in the series and it was awesome going into the third game. It reignited my passion for these games immediately. Like many recent games from Rockstar, Max Payne 3 is top notch in terms of story-telling and animations. The graphics are great, especially how they redesigned Max. Much more emotion in his face then ever seen before in the series and this brings me to the amazing cutscenes this game has. They have the quality of an HBO series and the story really is twisted, staying true to the series. The transition from cutscene to gameplay is completely seamless and I would love to see this in more games. Although the graphics are great, the Animations are what really make this game stand out. As far as I know it uses same the Animation engine as RDR and GTA4 but it is noticeably much more refined. Characters move with weight and complete believability and react super realistically with the environment and other characters. I even saw a few characters actually trip over them selves and take a spill. The bullet time mechanics just show off the animations even more as Max drives and shoots with his legs making believable movements from the moment he jump dives to when he hits the ground, this game makes nearly every moment feel epic.
I always want a challenge and Normal never seems to do it for me anymore so I played the game all the way through on Hard the first time, and man it was difficult. Some parts where Max is overwhelming outnumbered by Brazilian SWAT teams made it feel like complete luck when I finally progressed onto the next part. However it did make it feel that much more visceral as you overcome those overwhelming odds and gaining further ground in the singleplayer. Multiplayer is pretty insane and there is a lot more to it than meets the eye and I suspect it will take a lot of time and patience to really see how fleshed out it can be. This game was just amazing, well done Rockstar. GTA5 cant come soon enough

The game is good all the moves feel real and the grafix are great the only thing is the music that is not that great but with Xbox 360 the option to change the in game music and still listen to the story is a very welcome feature here my personal classical music goes with all games The Very Best of hanle makes me feel like agent 47 with the slow down time over all the story is interesting and the portugese in the game makes you feel like you are in Brazil....
