Max Payne 3 is a pretty good 3rd person shooter game. If you have read any of my reviews you know I feel 3rd person shooter games are better than 1st person shooter games. But there are some flaws that take away from your gaming experience.
FLAWS: The first is a given, your AI partner is worthless. Next, they use a white dot in their aiming process. The dot will turn red if you get it to a target. But with handguns the distance of target will keep dot white. Not enough pain killers, most times you just get two. Takes too many shots to drop the bad guys. Head shots are hard to come up. LAST the BULLET TIME, should have been updated to were a player could ZOOM and hit vital areas. Think about FALLOUT and how you can ZOOM in vats to clearly see the target. MP3 just keeps the same outdated bullet time feature that was cool a dozen years ago.
Those areas in my opinion make this a good game but not great game. The graphics are fine, The dialogue is ok. Sometimes you wish you can tell your AI partner to SHUT UP & SHOOT SOMEBOBY. He's always yapping for you to shoot, but you never see him drop anyone. I plan to buy it once the price drops. Namely that you can get into some really great gun fights. In one you have to kill at least 30 AI bad guys in one fight scene.

The script for Max was well done, the story carried the script well. The gameplay was average and you did the same thing over and over without much variance. There are also quite a few bugs in the game, along with some that cause the system to crash/freeze and lose audio. Lots of framerate drops as well, and the controls felt sluggish.

The difficulty is more difficult than most games on Normal, and it ramps up considerably during the last 3 missions.

The gameplay is fun for the most part if you can work around its flaws and framerate issues. The Euphoria animation system is superb, best on the market right now. But the game itself is nothing you haven't seen before in other games.
