Released on May 15, 2012, for consoles and on June 1, 2012, for PC, Max Payne 3 is Rockstar Games’ return to a beloved franchise. For a small recap, Max Payne is about well, Max Payne, and his struggles in life. The first game followed the death of his wife and daughter and subsequent revenge and small downfall into alcoholism. Max Payne 2 picks up pretty much where the first left off and Max was cleared of his prior murder charges and he finds himself going after a woman who knows much of his past. Max Payne 3 picks up with a nice intro detailing Max’s problems and how he ended up where he was at now, 8 years later.
