Product Description

Platform: PC

Product Description

For Max Payne, the tragedies that took his loved ones years ago are wounds that refuse to heal. No longer a cop, close to washed up and addicted to pain killers, Max takes a job in São Paulo, Brazil, protecting the family of wealthy real estate mogul Rodrigo Branco, in an effort to finally escape his troubled past. But as events spiral out of his control, Max Payne finds himself alone on the streets of an unfamiliar city, desperately searching for the truth and fighting for a way out.

Featuring cutting edge shooting mechanics for precision gunplay, advanced new Bullet Time and Shootdodge effects, full integration of Natural Motion’s Euphoria Character Behaviour system for lifelike movement and a dark and twisted story, Max Payne 3 is a seamless, highly detailed, cinematic experience from Rockstar Games.

In addition to an expansive single-player campaign, Max Payne 3 will also be the first entry in the series to introduce a thorough and engrossing multiplayer experience. Max Payne 3 multiplayer brings the same cinematic feel, fluid gunplay and sense of movement of the single-player game into the realm of online multiplayer. Using the fiction and signature gameplay elements of the Max Payne universe, Max Payne 3 features a wide range of new and traditional multiplayer modes that play on the themes of paranoia, betrayal and heroism, all delivered with the same epic visual style of the single player game.

Features:

  • Developed by Rockstar Games for a seamless, highly detailed, cinematic experience
  • Advanced Bullet Time and Shootdodge and Final Kill-cam mechanics for stylish shooting action
  • Cutting edge aiming, targeting and animation processes for precise, fluid gunplay
  • A dark, twisted story chronicling the return of Max Payne, one of the most iconic characters in videogames
  • Tight integration between Natural Motion’s Euphoria Character Behaviour System and a brand new iteration of the Rockstar Advanced Game Engine (RAGE) for lifelike movement and a new level of environmental awareness
  • A wide range of weapons rendered in incredible detail: hammers cock back, shells eject from the chamber and each bullet is individually modeled from the split second it’s fired to the moment of impact.
  • Advanced particle physics and destructible environments set the stage for dramatic and chaotic gun fights
  • New to the series, a compelling and addictive multiplayer experience to match the dark and relentless atmosphere of the single-player game

By A. Whitehead TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Max Payne 3 sees the return of the titular hero after a break of nine years. Remedy Entertainment, who made the first two games in the series, have moved on with their Alan Wake series of games, leaving Rockstar (best-known for the Grand Theft Auto series) to carry on their work. Whilst fans of the earlier games were dubious of this move, it was actually reasonably logical. Rockstar games often feature damaged protagonists trying to live better lives but being drawn back into a life of violence by circumstances, which is a perfect fit for Payne.

The game acts as a reboot of the series. References to the events of the first two games are minimal and, aside from a couple of flashback missions set in New York, the game is set in a different city in a different country with a very different culture (not to mention a different and un-translated language). The only constants are Max himself and, of course, his ability to slow down time to engage in combat.

Max Payne 3 is overwhelmingly impressive from a production values standpoint. The graphics are fantastic, with the game employing a vivid visual style. Keywords from conversations flash onto the screen and sometimes the action dissolves into line breaks and the colour desaturates, almost like you're watching the action on an old 1980s TV that is about to expire. The game's colour palette tends towards the bright and colourful, but there is a dark hue to everything. Sections set in crumbling warehouses or an abandoned hotel contrast the light and dark elements of the game's style. Animation is astonishing, with Max storing his weapons on his person and moving them around naturally to swap guns or take painkillers.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great graphics but I'd rather replay MP2 27 Nov 2012
By I. B. Pitbladdo VINE VOICE
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
For me Rockstar have really messed up this game. Max Payne 2 was a great game, dark, brooding, occasionally funny and action packed. I found Max Payne 3 to be none of these in fact I found it frustrating in most areas.
To start with there are too many cut scenes which replace the comic book elements of 2. Then there is the lack of a quick save which is hugely annoying since control of Max is pretty poor and as a result you tend to die a lot. I also found I died a lot because the reticule is a white dot and just when you need it there are loads of other bits of white debris floating about so you have trouble identifying yours. Weapons; I know in real life you couldn't carry all the gear you are allowed to in MP2 but It's real life I'm trying to get away from for a little while and I like having a grenade launcher, Uzi's, shotgun, grenades, pistols and an M16.
I play shooters on PC because I can't abide the lack of control of a console and to me this plays like a console, Finally because I bought this online I have no option but to join Rockstar's social club which I'm just not interested in, sorry if that sounds anti social but there it is. I'm very disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Technical Masterpiece - but... 1 Jun 2012
By Snuffy
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Technically, Max Payne 3 is a Masterpiece. The graphics are the best I've ever seen. It flows seamlessly from cut scene to game play and back again - you don't even notice when it's changed. And it runs like a dream, not a stutter, not a dropped frame, it just works.

The movement of characters and the attention to detail have to be seen to be believed, the graphics are stunning. It's like a film where you keep taking control of the central character.

But...

Is it a good game ? Do I want to keep playing it ? Can I turn my PC off ? Like a book, is it a page-turner ?

No, I don't think it is. Something is missing somehow - there's no real game play. It's like you think you are in control, but in reality, just like a film, you are just following the script and nothing you do makes any odds at all.

2.0 out of 5 stars Rockstar didn't get it 3 Jun 2012
Platform for Display:PC|Verified Purchase
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I've never written a review on here before but after witnessing this travesty I had to say something about this game. Normally a Rockstar game is a seal of quality for me and don't get me wrong - the production values on this game are great. However when it comes to the gameplay I can tell you that Rockstar really didn't get it.

Max Payne was meant to make you feel powerful in a Matrix kind of way. What Rockstar have done is put too much of their own crap into it. You spend most of your time watching cut scene after cut scene after cut scene. Then in the middle of these cut scenes you get a little bit of gunplay - frustrating gunplay at that. Often when a cutscene finishes it puts you straight in the battle in harms way and max doesn't respond for precious seconds while bad guys have already started shooting at you. So your health has diminished before you've even started. (I'm only playing on medium difficulty by the way) Then to make matters worse when max lands on the floor after a shoot dodge it takes him ages to stand up again. And this can happen when enemies are still shooting at you. So the chances are you will keep dying on the floor because the 'max standing up animation' takes way too long.

Also the weapons don't hit the sweet spot any way near like the first two games did. You can't carry as many weapons. You have to do that stupid dropping thing to be able to pick another gun up. I don't care about realism - I want to be able to choose between a sawed off shotgun, a grenade launcher, a machine gun or dual berettas!!!! Also the dual wield thing is odd. The game never gives you time to sort your 'inventory' out. So i still haven't figured out if i can dual wield berettas.
