  • Blog Post: Bullet Dodge, Shoot, Cover, Burst, Cover, Bullet Dodge, Shoot, Die, Restart

    "I was at the end of my rope. I couldn't dodge it any longer. My copy of Fuse was eying me, begging me to review it, but I had one last shot. The last ace up my sleeve. I jumped over the couch in slow motion as my mom asked me what the hell I was doing as HEALTH starts playing." This is... More

  • 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 'Payne Pill' for action addicts.

    I was skeptical at first when I saw Max in a bright Hawaiian button-down shirt and sporting a freshly cut shaved head. I thought to myself "That's not Max Payne, that's John McClane on vacation!" Although I am a huge 'Die Hard' movie franchise fan, I am also a big Max Payne... More
  • Blog Post: Back in Action

    Max Payne is back and better than ever. I wasn't allowed to play the games back than lol and thats exactly why i DID play them. The story line is great and the multiplayer is just plain F****** awesome. 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 is Back and Badder than ever!

    I've been a Max Payne fan since the very beginning and I gotta say I love the series. Year after year and delay after delay I patiently waited for Max Payne 3 and I have to say it was well worth the wait. It is a beautifully crafted game, from its intense and noir-style single player all the way... 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: A new taste in shooters

    Well this sure has been a blast. This is a new idea for the shooter market. Something this genre truly needs. The focus on storytelling with a new way to kill the bad guys is refreshing and incredibly enjoyable. This is the kind of game everyone should get a taste of. It's not a shooter but a story... 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: 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: Max Payne 3: Bring the Payne

    S tory Max Payne 3 uses a narrative approach to its storytelling with Max as the narrator, reliving flashbacks of recent and less-recent events. All of the events surround the plot of a Brazilian family with some serious enemies hell-bent on kidnapping them while Max tries in vain to protect them. Being... More
  • Blog Post: Extremely Disappointed

    I was highly anticipating this game when it launched. I picked it up Tuesday, and after a frustrating go at multiplayer...decided to jump into the single-player game to learn the mechanics and controls. I found this even more frustrating. When the tiny little dot that made up the aiming reticule was... More
