Games Like Max Payne

Max Payne is a third-person shooter video game series developed by Remedy Entertainment and Rockstar Studios. The franchise is notable for its use of "bullet time" in action sequences which slows down everything around the player while he can still aim and fire weapons in real time. This gives the characters an edge over the enemies. If you are a fan of third-person shooter games like Max Payne and looking for more games with similar game play then find the recommendations for it below (Max Payne, Max Payne 3 , Nintendo DS, PC, PS2, PS3, Wii, Xbox, Xbox 360)

Stranglehold is the only good one of the bunch. In some respects it was even better than Max Payne 3, and that's saying a lot.

lol what?

Stranglehold was terrible.

Graphics were pretty good for an early UE3 title and they still hold up today, but the game was essentially a glorified arcade rail-shooter.

You couldn't "play it safe" and the whole game encouraged you to wastefully run through the level as fast as possible knocking off headshots along the way. I thought they wasted a ton of good looking and well-designed set pieces so players could blast through each area at turbo speed...it was like WTF?

I kind of wish they had some of the environments from Stranglehold in Max Payne 3 because Rockstar did a much better job of capturing "squib effect" of a John Woo shooter than the game that was supposed to be a sequel to a John Woo movie!

I didn't play Max Payne 3 "safe" either. I don't know how you played, but I was in bullet time 90% of the game while focusing on headshots. Pretty much the entire point of NY Minute.

That's the thing -- in Max Payne 3 you had options. You could run and gun if you were good enough, you could pick your shots from a safe place if you wanted, or you could tactically or strategically take guys out with a mix of play-styles. You didn't really have that option in Stranglehold, it was just mostly run-and-gun if you wanted to survive the wave-based enemies.

What happened to True Crime?
Pancit_Canton  +   418d ago
I guess True Crime is more of an open world compare to more linear game like Max Payne.
cyguration  +   418d ago
Actually, you're right...

Sleeping Dogs was pretty much a spot-on alternative to Max Payne 3 while maintaining similar mechanics.

It was a lot closer to MP3 than Kane & Lynch (no offense Pancit) and Splinter Cell.

Some of the games in this list (MGS/Splinter Cell) are not like Max Payne at all. Aside from being TPS games they have nothing in common at all.

Max Payne 3 does it better than all of them. MP3 was very underrated and it's a shame more people aren't playing it online.
PersonMan  +   417d ago
I agree. Max Payne 3 is one of the best online shooters in my opinion. It's pretty much the only game I still go online for.

Totally agree man. Stranglehold is nothing compared to the share intensity/ realism of the Mr. Max....stranglehold is just an arcade shooter..max payne 3, true simulation in many ways. There will be a Max Payne 4, check this out....he is no longer able to return to new jersey, riight..... but Perhaps making the next plot a die hard manifesto...Global super powers/world war conflict, causing him to return to the U.S...... to see his wife and little girl once more..
