I greatly enjoyed this game. It brought lots of aspects that haven't been seen in other games such as the animation system. In my opinion it is a very good game. some of the other reviews are a bit harsh. this game shouldn't be rated lower than a 5 unless you have a really good reason for it. Fresh content and very immersive. Also this game is not for kids. Lots of adult content. It's meant for a more mature gamer.
I have never played a max Payne game before this one. I heard it was by rockstar and everybody knows rockstar games are awesome. I like the shooting mechanics and graphics however in some parts of the storyline I was left scratching my head trying to figure out what exactly they were talking about. I give this game a hard 8.
