I must say, even with the 8.3 rating it's still underrated. Firstly, controls are perfect. You basically use all the easy to use buttons on the controller.
2nd, the graphics is great. You can tell the developers paid much attention to detail on this title.
3rd, The story, though insane, all blends together in perfect unison to add purpose to Max's mission.
And Lastly, gun-play, Phenomenal. The Bullet Cam is amazingly entertaining, the slow motion intervals are perfectly incorporated into the real time gameplay.
If I must rate it, realistically, 9.5 only because we're not living in a perfect world.

first of all i'm a max payne fan but i will keep it real. i really enjoyed the storyline, which was excellent, the gameplay was good and fluid, graphics were decent and the animation was good, most of all i really thought the soundtrack was excellent. really enjoyed hearing the club style music which fit the cutscenes. i did not really enjoy the controlling of the character. a lilttle choppy and somewhat difficult to get max where you want to be at crucial moments of gameplay. all in all in really enjoyed the game and recommend a must play.
