  • Blog Post: Playing through the Payne: The Issues of Max Payne 3

    It happened in the decaying favela slums of Sao Paulo. It had been a good few weeks since I picked up the controller to play Max Payne 3, so I figured why not go back. Max Payne 3 has perhaps the most polished gunplay I have ever experienced--it's almost as satisfying as a real trip to the gun range... More
  • Blog Post: A Quick Good vs. Bad Review for Max Payne 3

    Quick isn't what I do, especially since my reviews usually take me at around an hour or 2 to complete even after taking notes during my playthroughs. However, I'm extremely backed up. I now have 9 other games that I've got to beat and review (though I may not even bother reviewing a couple... More
  • Blog Post: Max Payne 3 - All About Max

    Max Payne 3 has one trait that so many other mindless action games lack - it has character. Or more specifically, one character. Max Payne himself. The above quotes are just a small sampling of some of Payne's social commentary, and makes every minutes of Max Payne 3, even the rare moments when you... More
  • Blog Post: A World of Hurt, Booze, and Bullet Time

    We've been waiting for a while, and the latest installment in the Max Payne series has finally arrived. Questions and skepticism arose when players saw a dramatically-aged Max Payne and a story that seemed to completely abandon the subdued style evoked by the first two entries in favor of a b-movie...

  • Blog Post: The Best 3rd Person Shooter to Date

    "Say what you will about Americans, but we understand capitalism. You buy yourself a product and you get what you pay for." That's the book-ends dialogue in Max Payne 3. How fitting... because after playing this game, I found myself thinking, "Say what you will about Rockstar, but... More
  • Blog Post: Max Payne 3. Slightly Overrated.

    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... More
  • Blog Post: "I guess i'd become what they wanted me to be"

    Max Payne 3 takes players through poverty and riches in Brazil, and doesn't hold anything back. New and improved gameplay mechanics, thousands of animations in Max Payne alone, and realistic bullet entry and deaths, along with a great soundtrack, engrossing story, awesome graphics and shading, and...

  • Blog Post: The Epic Return of Max Does Not Disappoint

    Normal 0 false false false EN-GB X-NONE X-NONE When I first heard that a sequel to the Max Payne games from the early 2000’s, I was understandably sceptical. In the time that Max Payne 2 has come out, Rockstar has had a plethora of tremendous releases. I expected this to be on par with the last... More
  • Blog Post: Here comes the Payne!

    I am a longtime fan of Rockstar as a developer, and have loved playing their masterpieces. One series that I just couldn't get in to was Max Payne. It just felt like a failed attempt at GTA glory when I first played them. That was then, and this is now. From the moment I begun the game until the... More
  • Blog Post: For A Bloated Drug Addict, Max Is A Pretty Impressive Guy

    Max Payne 3 starts with Max staring down at a completely maimed person struggling to escape whatever fate Max's gun has for him. Max's inner monologue kicks in, explaining how he has become just a murderous tool for another employer. This scene sets the tone of a game that certainly has a specific... More
  • Blog Post: Max Payne 3 Extensive Review

    I would like to review Max Payne 3. When I first saw Max Payne 3 advertised in a GameInformer mag that I received about two summers ago, I could not help my excitement. As a worthy follower of Max Payne, I was blown away by the new setting. The first thing is that Max Payne 3 is a whole new experience... More
  • Blog Post: payne Killer

    Even with the high expectations I brought into Max Payne 3, Rockstar still managed to blow me away. The single player campaign was long enough and most certainly entertaining enough to keep me entertained for many hours and a couple playthroughs, but the single player is not the best part of Max Payne...
