Max Payne 3 Review | Gamers Association

Jay Curtis writes: "I want to love Max Payne 3. I really do, yet it’s just not possible. The game is crippled by flaws so serious that even a great protagonist can’t save this game from its mistakes. Max Payne 3 could have been one of the year’s most memorable experiences, but it ends up being nothing more than a rare misstep by Rockstar." (Max Payne 3 , PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 2/5

I totally agree with the De ja vu point. No gameplay progression whatsoever. Bullet time dodge/slow-fall down-slow get up-spam keys a bit more to get up faster-still not getting up-shoot shoot shoot-bullet time dodge-oh snap cant get up again-shoot shoot -spam keys to get up meantime- repeat till credits.

Still the shootouts were fun, besides the tiny frustrating elements.

The major downer for me was the short fights, long cutscenes-spacebar-spacebar-oh wait cant skip-long cutscene-short fight-another long cutscene-read a book-come back-short fight.

Story was a bit generic. Dialogue was better than the plot thankfully. I would never discuss MP3 story with friends or well mention it anywhere actually even though it was such a story heavy game I mean come on with all the cutscenes it definitely focused very very heavily on the story yet I dont remember or care to remember most of it. I only remember some cool bits.

Everything else about the game, brilliant.

I would not go as far as 2/5 to me its around 3.5/5

I bought the game new and just like you and like the review. I regretted that I bought the game new. it is not that bad, but toward the end the repetitive gameplay, the boring story gets really into the way to finish this game, I had to do though, and the online is horrible

@Pandehz I hate to say it, but you raise some good points, at the same time you've overlooked quite a few positives such as the cinematic quality and overall fluidity of the gameplay, amazingly gritty, visceral atmosphere, wicked sound design, awesome visuals, and lets not forget the second to none hit detection/reaction physics.

Just on these things and the engine alone, I'd personally give it at least 4/5 to 4.5/5
