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.

MAX PAYNE 3 is one of the best games I have ever played RockStarGames never disappoints me with there games. First of all this game is not for kids its very violent, bloody, mature, and has sexual content and nudity. Ok this game I find better than Red Dead Redemption which won game of the year and was one of my favorite games and I had 270 or more hours of gameplay on that but I'm happy to say that MAX PAYNE 3 is better, yes it is. MAX PAYNE 3 is a story driven game with interesting characters and really good graphics and at the end of every level there is a climax to get you to play the next level which works. If you have played the other Max Payne games you will know that Max is a depressing character who mixes painkillers and whiskey. The multiplayer is also really fun and I found myself hooked to that as well and it isn't to hard my first match I went 25 and 8 its really fun with the bullet time mechanic being in the multiplayer as well with other "bursts". I highly recommend this game and it could be a participant for game of the year.

Max Payne 3 is just like everything else Rockstar does: amazing. Max Payne is a character that's easy to get behind and feel for, the story is really good, the multiplayer is a lot of fun, the dlc is cheap but jam packed full of content, the crew system is good (bonus xp for playing with your crew/clan) it's just perfect on all counts for anyone who enjoys a good story, a good multiplayer or both.
