Max Payne 3

 

You could take one of Max Payne 3's bullet point features and make it a metaphor for the game itself. Once you've downed the last enemy in a section, the game turns on the slow-mo, allowing you to fire further bullets into the lifeless corpse as he...

Max Payne 3 will be instantly recognisable to anyone who has been on a Max Payne outing in the past, but it also appeals to newcomers who will be dazzled by the production values of Rockstar. Whilst it sports an average multiplayer, Max Payne 3 is...

Max Payne 3 Xbox 360 Review

 

It's been just shy of ten years since we last saw Max and at that point, he'd mostly survived the aftermath of an entire mansion collapsing around him. 9 and a bit years later Max has found himself once again at the bottom of a bottle, but this time in...

Good gameplay ; More shootdodging ; Good multiplayer twists

Cover system can be iffy at times ; Not as dark as the previous games ; Game was over too quickly

Games Xtreme grabs two guns and goes in blazing to check out Max Payne 3.

Max Payne 3 is a great game, it is fun, it's solid and whilst it doesn't do anything majorly new... it scratches that Payne itch we've missed for so long.

Max Payne 3 Xbox 360 Review

 

On occasion, a fresh developer tackling an established series can be a good thing, with the possibility of them breathing new life into familiar mechanics and perhaps bringing their own ideas to the table and such, though there's also the risk of a...

In spite of the change in developer and brighter skies, Max Payne 3 doesn’t bring anything tangibly new to the series and some are likely to be disappointed with just how conservative it is, but it does feature the most spectacular action yet for the...

Max Payne 3

 

Despite a scenery change for Payne, old habits die hard for the game's leading protagonist.

Finally, the guide covers the multiplayer aspect of Max Payne 3 in a high level of detail. Not only are the modes explained well, there are a vast amount of suggestions for each mode, based on your own playing style. If you're a hardcore Max Payne...

Max Payne 3 – Review

 

After a long hiatus and a new development team Max Payne has finally made his return. Max Payne 3 sees an older Max Payne who has gone down to Sao Paulo, Brazil to protect a rich and influential family from kidnappers, thieves and the like. It was...

Max Payne 3

 

The original Max Payne introduced the world to the solid run-and-gun gameplay but with a Matrix-esque twist, being one of the first (if not ‘the' first) to bring slow-motion bullet time effects to the video game medium. It was big news at the time, and...

It’s been years and Max Payne has aged both as a character and as a series. It’s visually impressive and spins a compelling yarn, featuring a protagonist who walks the line of insanity yet remains likeable due to his inner humanity. That said, it goes...

Max Payne 3 Review

 

Max Payne 3 is the third installment in Rockstar Games Max Payne series and is set eight years after the events of the last installment.

Tight, terrific gunplay intensified by bullet time and hard-hitting violence ; Great writing, voice acting, and cutscene presentation ; Detailed environments that get destroyed in spectacular fashion ; Impactful sound design ; Fun, chaotic multiplayer

Max's shootdodge maneuver is sometimes frustratingly ineffective

Max's vulnerability, and the feeling of danger that accompanies it, makes combat much more nerve-racking than it was in earlier Max Payne games, but it does come with a downside: Max's signature shootdodge has suffered. You can still leap through the...

Max Payne 3 review: Slick, bloody, beautiful... but not without its flaws

 

By the time we'd finished Max Payne 3, we'd killed over 1400 people. From start to finish, the game is a violent tornado of death and destruction, and one of the bloodiest, most relentless shooters ever. It has all the cinematic flair, polish, and...

Ultra-polished shooter, packed with visceral, brutal shootouts ; Looks beautiful, with outstanding attention to detail ; Euphoria physics bring every firefight to life ; Great multiplayer

Far too long - after 6-7 hours, you've seen everything it has to offer ; Not enough depth to the combat ; Feels a little one-note

A slick, violent shooter, made with Rockstar's trademark style and panache. But it's marred by a lack of variety and an overlong story.

Max Payne 3

 

Max Payne 3 is the closest our consoles have come to making us feel like an action hero

Multiplayer occasionally hits the right side of frenzy ; Engaging action in vibrant surroundings ; Payne a deeper and more compelling character

A punishing and relentless game. Frustration can lurk

On the other hand, the smoke and mirrors of the game's polish, presentation and story only just covers the fact that you're a one trick slow-mo pony. A pony that wants me dead most of the time, and always reverts me to wielding a pistol after...
