In Max Payne III we see Max from a new perspective. Taking place nine years after the second game, Payne left the police department in New York and now serves as a private security contractor in São Paulo, Brazil. Guarding the Branco family - Ricardo, Victor and Marcelo, everything turns into a disaster when a local street gang kidnaps Ricardo's wife. In attempt saving Ricardo's wife, another outlaw involves. In the end, Max has to infiltrate the gang to save Fabiana and perform some justice.

Even if Max is old, he still can put on a hell of a fight. A cover system provides some good tactical advantages and bullet time is now something iconic for the series. Manipulating with time, Max can perform some amazing tricks to kill his opponent. Also, you can shoot from any angle basically, while lying on the ground. If that isn't enough for you, you can obliterate your enemies with melee attacks or blow them up by using explosives.

As another feature of the game, no loading screens are involved. Cut-scenes are also interactive, and with that, the process of the game is absolutely smooth which makes the best experience from an intense shooter.

Servuz my Bullet-Time friends and Girlfriends, here my slow-motion review of Max Payne 3. Genre: 3Rd-person shooter/arcade shooter + Pro's: + good inner Monologues & Dialogues + very good to excellent Backdrops + vivid facial Expressions, natural Conversations + Playable Flashbacks to New Jersey + cool slow motion action with last second joker + large Arsenal of weapons + Physics Engine simulates hits & destruction Well + whopping 12 to 14 Hours of Action time + Optional target Aids, multiple Difficulty levels + Multiplayer with cooperative Story mode + including 3D effect and best Technique-Kontra's:-Blockbuster feeling? Mystical Symbolism? Unfortunately no-weak Story without credible Twists-no playful variety-special Acrobatics only in predetermined Places-linear level Corset, hardly any alternative paths-far too simple Melee-boring weapon Ice-searching-graphics error When Firing Out of Cover-last Third Pulls up like Chewing Gum-frustrating Final fight conclusion: Max Payne 3 is, in my Opinion, a Game that is said to have been played as a Fan of the Max Payne franchise at all times. In itself, a good stable fun Game. Unfortunately, however, it did not live up to my Expectations. Expected more. In the third Part lacks the certain "gloomy," "abge ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ te" as it was definitely in the first Part. Thank you for taking the Time and reading through my Review. Leave a Review or write me your Opinion underneath!

This Review relates only to the Campaign. I played And loved Max Payne 1 at the time ... Therefore, I am very sorry not to be able to recommend Max Payne 3:( I got the Game in The last Humblebundle and took about 11 Hours for the Campaign. The Good thing to do: + Bullet time is still cool and a lot of Fun in general the weapons feel good. + The Graphics are still going OK in 2018 + The best bullet Holes ever + The weapons sound bold and good + Setting. The Voice Actors do a good Job, auẞerdem most Brazilians in the Game speak in Portuguese, which gives the whole thing a little more Authenticity. Neutral-+ Music. Not bothered but also not remembered Now to the Reason why I can't recommend the Game. 1. The Level design or the Process: A typical Level goes like this: Max Payne pities himself, walks into Space, kills all the Opponents in the Room, kills all the opponents in the room, short, unnecessary Cutscenes, Max Payne pities himself, goes into Space kills all opponents, unnecessary Cutscenes, Max Payne Dressed himself, walks into Space kills all opponents, unnecessary Cutscenes, Max Payne pities himself, walks into Space kills all opponents, unnecessary Cutscenes, Max Payne pities himself, walks into Space kills all opponents ... And for 11 Hours ... You can have Fun with the Game, if you don't care about the Monotony and the constant Self-talks of Max Payne don't go on your Bag ...

Шикарнейший экшен, который могут делать, наверное, только рокстары. Одновременно с этим же - шикарная атмосфера нуара и безысходности, которую в своё время не разглядели критики, зацепившиеся за смену декораций с дождливого Нью-Йорка на солнечную Бразилию. Да что тут говорить: я и сам смог оценить и прочувствовать её только спустя годы, при повторном прохождении. Отдельно хочется высказаться на тему геймплея. Я не помню игр, в которых, вроде бы, обычная стрельба была бы проработана с такой тщательностью, как третья часть Макса Пейна. Противники здесь выживают после попадания ваших пуль в их каски и броню, они часто падают на землю, просто притворяясь мёртвыми, и встают обратно через несколько секунд, когда вы уже отвлеклись на других врагов. Они выживают после очереди выстрелов в бронежилет. Эти мелочи делают вроде бы обычную перестрелку более глубоким процессом. В каком-то смысле, эта игра действительно стремится сделать перестрелку реалистичной, хотя конечно же, Макс Пейн - не совсем про реализм. Для тех, кому хочется понять, где в этой третьей части Нуар: он скрыт не столько в цветовой гамме, сколько в переживаниях и мыслях главных героев повествования. Депрессия с утопанием в самокритичности, отнюдь, вряд сменятся более приятными мыслями с попаданием в солнечную страну. В особенности в том случае, если в жизни народа этой страны почти единственной возможностью "придти к успеху" заключается шанс попасть в высшую футбольную лигу, и в ином случае до конца жизни влачить бедное существование или присоединиться к одной из соседних банд на своём дворе. Нуар заключается в подобных тонких нотках, и таких намёков разной степени явности в игре можно найти в огромном количестве. Мне также кажется, это одна из тех игр, которые можно иногда проходить заново и находить в ней нечто новое.
