Max Payne is not a very likeable guy. He’s old, addicted to booze and pills and generally does everything in his power to make as much a mess of his own life as possible. For as long as it has been since the last installment of the Max Payne series, Rockstar really had a lot of room to play with characters, setting and story. With great characters like Niko Bellic and John Marston to draw inspiration from, it’s difficult to understand why Rockstar failed in Max Payne 3 to create a compelling protagonist.
