Finally after years of waiting comes the new installment to the Max Payne series. Max Payne 3 is set 9 years after the events of Max Payne 2 and I have to say; It. Is. Amazing. The story is still the best part of Max Payne involving painkillers, booze, and a rich story built on the fuel of vengeance.
Presentation - Max Payne is a body guard for a rich business man's wife and family settled in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Everything is just a party until Rodrigo Branco, rich business man, 's wife, Fabiana Branco, is kidnapped by Favela street gangs. Going through the story you will find out that there is a plot that is so big that it is even further up than Max could've imagined as he tries to find out the leader and take him down. There is only one downside to the story and whole game and that is the Tiete River mission. It is kind of not the same gameplay as the rest of the game.
Gameplay - Bullet time is back and at its best. Max now jumps through the air better than before as it is portrayed like how it would when you fall to the ground in real life. There are tons of things in the game that you can jump over and use bullet time to not make it repetitive at all.
Online - I was a bit skeptical when they were trying out putting bullet time online, but I've already played it a couple times and here's what I can tell you; it works. They balanced out the normal gameplay with slowing time down.
The Verdict - Max Payne 3 is a fantastic game through and through despite the one mission. The story is at its best and the online couldn't be better. I give Max Payne 3 9.5/10.
The Pain is back! It took 11 yrs for another good Max Payne title to come out. My expectations were high for Rockstar, seeing as they had 8 yrs to master MP3. To sum it all up they have been met ten fold. The controls,mechanics,gunplay,fights & graphics dare i say it are better than UC2 & UC3. That being said this game should sell like hotcakes. I'm off to find more Painkillers. $49.99 is worth the price of Admission

With all these reviews on here puttin this title down, I though id leave my two cents. This game is alot of fun. Its hard to find a game i wont just put down after a little and forget about, But this game i cant. I just got it, started up the campaign, and played it for a couple hours, starts kindaaa slow and repetative it seemed like. whateverrrr it was a blast.
Then i tried muilti-player, and mannnn it was saweet. So addicting, i like the money system, the gun attachment system, and the avatar system. It feels alot like Uncharted muiltiplayer with the 1 hit melees, and the grenades how they are, But at the same time it plays like GTA 4. (not the muilti-player, the movement and cover system.)
Give this game a chance, its worth purchasing though! What am I saying give it a chance for. Its MAX PAYNE!?
(I read this one review where the kid said the game was pretty bad caus the controls sucked? and he couldnt control his guy as well as he wanted to. hahah get real.)
