The lights are on
First let me say, I enjoyed Max Payne 3. It's fluid combat, and cinematic gunplay, certainly make Max Payne 3 an overall good experience and fun to play in general. However, I couldn't help but feel detached and uninterested in the story. There was nothing about the characters that compelled me to save them, and quite honestly, at some points the game felt like a chore. I had no desire to shoot through hundreds of enemies to save these people. So, I guess this problem boils down to character development. After a few hours in, I couldn't stop thinking " We get it Max, you're a hopeless alcoholic with a tough exterior, but a heart of gold." His character felt cliche and tired after a while, but maybe I'm just being too picky. Overall a great game and certainly worth picking up, but I couldn't shake the sour taste after finishing it and knowing it was probably one I could've skipped until the price dropped. Also, multiplayer is god awful, but that's not why you buy a Max Payne game.
