General Information

Available on:PCMay 31, 2012

Developers: Rockstar Games, Rockstar Studios

Publisher: Rockstar Games

Genre: Action

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. Combining cutting edge shooting mechanics with a dark and twisted story, Max Payne 3 is a seamless, highly detailed, cinematic experience from Rockstar Games. This complete edition of Max Payne 3 includes the complete original game and all previously released downloadable content including Deathmatch Made In Heaven, Painful Memories Pack, Hostage Negotiation Pack, Local Justice Pack, Silent Killer Loadout Pack, Cemetery Map, Special Edition Pack, Deadly Force Burst, Pill Bottle Item, and the Classic Max Payne 1 Character.

Rockstar has impeccably reappropriated Max Payne. It's darker than ever, and while Max Payne is certainly moving in a new direction with this episode, he remains a deeply black, tortured character, who kills in slow motion to accelerate his depression. Hyper playable, beautifully realized, the single player remains however a little prisoner of its formula: it is on the side of multiplayer that you will have to cool off, and against all odds, that of Max Payne 3 turns out to be a little gem.

The Rockstar team has managed to revisit with great skill the work done previously by Remedy. Probably no one else would have been able to interpret in the same way the maturity and despair of an icon of other times. The gameplay, enriched by elements necessary to contextualize the product today, does not betray its origins in any way.

Max Payne 3 is a solid game made for the PC, with incredible visuals and sound to go along with that. This is a no brainer for any action shooter fan out there. If you have not tried this legendary series yet, then Max Payne 3 is a perfect introduction.

Max Payne 3 has everything that Max Payne lovers could want: an excellently narrated plot, an above-average longevity and an exceptional amount of content, obviously enriched by the classic gameplay based on action scenes and Bullet Time that have always distinguished the title from other productions.
