Splitkick - Max Payne 3 Review

Splitkick: Max Payne has always had a simple feeling to pin down. It’s a rain-slick alley behind a Brooklyn nightclub. It’s a handful of painkillers washed down with a fifth of scotch. It’s leather, gunpowder, and broken glass; and it’s a machine of death wearing the face of a grizzled (ex-)cop.

Sound, graphics, and story. Coming from someone who's played the first and second game when they released all those years ago, I was very, very impressed. My personal GOTY.

I'm also a long time fan, played them to death when they first came out, and played through them again recently in the run up to this coming out.

Just got the game this morning and I'm very impressed with how it's turned out. The action is incredible and the dialogue is still very much Max Payne.

"Under any other name, Max Payne 3 would have been significantly more impressive. Given the expectations associated with this series, it’s hard not to be underwhelmed"

are you serious your giving it a worse score because its called max payne. so thats what rockstar are missing, the naming of there games, it should be called billy chuffter, then it would have been scored a 9 or 10

what a joke some people are its like they don't think about how stupid they sound
