It's pretty much rifles, shotguns, and pistols all the way through, up until near the very end, where you finally get to handle a grenade launcher, and RPG.

The bullet time is alright, but the novelty has long worn off. It does give you a great "kill-cam" though, for each final enemy of an area. It slows the action down, and shows your bullets ripping through the body of the enemy. It's really gruesome, and quite impressive from a graphical standpoint. Faces get blown apart, and exit wounds spray blood pretty realistically. It's the game's best trick, and is always satisfying to watch.

When compared to a similar game like Uncharted, it falls a bit short in the gameplay department. However, if you're a big Max Payne fan, you'll be able to forgive it's shortcomings, and get sucked into the story.

7.5/10
I thought the game was an excellent follow-up to the first two. Maybe I'm just a boring gamer, but the repetition of the gameplay in the series has never bothered me. I've played the first two over 20 times a piece, and I still enjoy it. I'm just entranced by the shootdodging and bullet-time.

The story is great, (though a bit convoluted towards the end) and that's what these games have always been about for me. Story and atmosphere, the gameplay playing second fiddle, but it still functions like icing on the cake.

And PnG. Yeah, yeah. You hate 99% of games. Old hat.

Day Z. It is amazing, especially considering it is only in Alpha state. It is the best zombie game ever, and trust me, you get terrified everytime, you see anyone. I just had the most epic, Walking Dead style barn moment. after surviving 30 zombies with a guy I met up with there, we both broke some bones on a staircase. I died, I don't know if he made it.

But yah, try the DayZ mod, was totally worth the 15$ on amazon.

Totally agree with this. I'm having a blast. Especially once you get the hang of Free Aim and you nail head shots left and right. It's awesome. Personally, I'll never understand the "repetitive" argument with any game because repetition is what makes you a better player in any game. Plus most games are essentially repetitive. It's what's built around the gameplay which makes a good game in my opinion.

Look no further then any FPS. COD, Halo, Battlefield are basically clearing an area and moving on to the next. What makes the games interesting are the stories, the design, the set pieces to the score of the game.

Max Payne 3 has probably one of the best stories I have seen in a game in awhile. You're completely immersed into the experience. Which makes all the repetitive gameplay work. When you go into a quick time event and you're trying to take out all of the enemies before it ends, and you do? Completely gratifying! Same can be said when you clear an area without using painkillers. It's just plain fun.

I just figured we should have better games. Not a guy running around with his arm sticking straight out like some rag doll dummy. But, maybe the Max payne train left me a long time ago. IDK, I did like the old gritty vibe that the other two gave out.

I loved Playing Red Dead redemption and I guess i missed the train for the multiplayer cause when i played it only a few guys were on. But from I remember, it was pretty cool.

Theres a lot of dropping in and out, but every now and then there are enough people to form a full posse. Myself, l'm more of a lone gunner. l go around killing cougars and picking flowers, just waiting for some fucknut whose invitation l just rejected to come trouncing up all cavalier and shit. Then l whoop out my Henry Repeater and blast his ass. Good times. GREAT game.

HOLY FUCKING SHIT!!! Ive been poking around the new boards for the past month wondering why NO ONE is posting over there whatsoever only to just find out that these old boards are where everyone moved back to. I feel like I just woke up from a coma. Anyways...

Max Payne 3

After reading some good reviews but a lot of subaverage ones, I decided to pick this up on the recommendation of Devouring and it was a very good idea to. Im through 10 of the 14 chapters on hard mode and Im having a blast. Im REALLY enjoying the story and the gameplay is pretty good. Its different from the first two Payne games but that doesnt make it bad.

The multiplayer is hit and miss and the mechanics are wonky at times. The ‘Gang Wars’ gamemode is really fun and a refreshing change of pace. It follows a mini storyline and has 4 random gametypes (out of 10) and then caps off with a 5 minute deathmatch. You get 5 points in the bank for each of the 4 previous gametypes your team wins.

Overall, its a great game and holds plenty of replay value for completionists.

8.5/10
