Face-Off: Max Payne 3 (Digital Foundry)

DF writes:

"It's the middle of May, and right on cue a new Rockstar game is making some big noise around our local cinema spots and bus stop ad-boards. Revolutionary for its use of a trendy Bullet Time mechanic, and for having an early stab at object-based physics and face-mapping (with some memorably quirky results), Max Payne was something of a flagship third-person shooter for PC back in 2001, and it's a welcome sight to see the series return with such commercial pizazz."

Looks like they've put more effort onto the PS3 version considering the fact that the RAGE engine tends to have significant difference in their previous games.

There are a lot of crybabies in eurogamer's comment section, lol.

THC CELL4212d ago

the game is ok on both consoles.. why are people still doing this, i hope next gen we see none of this.

chukamachine4212d ago

Not sure about putting more effort into the PS3 version.

Ps3 version looks cleaner, 360 version has more foliage and lighting elsewhere, and ps3 in some other places.

Both framerates are very close, favouring neither for the most part.

Lensoftruth like the 360 version for nothing more then they prefer that console. Just the way it is.

These games from rockstar are nothing but ports of the 360 version imo.

If i ever play this game, it'll be on the PC version anyway.

The missing lights are a glitch in DFs PS3, the lights are in the PS3 version.

I got 80% trophy completion on Ragnarok but left a few of the battles. Will come back to it one day.

Miraak82 154d ago

Dragon Quest 11 is my top pick

RpgSama154d ago

Dragon Quest XI was such an AMAZING game, I had a blast from the very beginning all the way to the very end, it actually got better the more you played, full of surprises as well.

Another game that I enjoyed from the very beginning all the way to the end of the 100% completion was Yakuza: Like a Dragon. Really, really, really fun game with a great heartfelt story.

badz149154d ago (Edited 154d ago )

Where is Horizon Zero Dawn?? where is Ghost of Tsushima?? I just got my Platinum on HZD and is now trying to finish the Frozen Wild expansion. so much care and love went into that game and it really shows. I especially adore the lore and have sunk many hours listening to the logs and reading journals. the back story is great and the gameplay is awesome. can't wait to replay on the hardest difficulty on NG+. next in my list would be to finish GoTsushima

Tacoboto154d ago

Ghost was fantastic especially after Iki Island and the PS5 upgrade. 100%'d that, Horizon Forbidden West (not ZD), GoW (not yet Ragnarok), Spider-Man, and R&C: Rift Apart.

Each one absolutely worth it.

Aloymetal154d ago (Edited 154d ago )

100% I would like to add to you list RDR2, amazing as well and the perks from getting the Legend Of The East outfit is awesome.
Sekiro as well, have to play twice to get it but it's worth it!

Demetrius154d ago

I agree I'm on my 2nd playthroughs of both horizon forbidden West(zero dawn I played also) ghost of Tsushima except I'm replaying it on PS5 this time, the iki island expansion is amazing

ClayRules2012154d ago

Yeah, GoT was already an AMAZING game on PS4, but playing it on PS5, along with that expansion, just even better.

Elda154d ago

I just started my copy of GOW:R, enjoying it so far.

DefenderOfDoom2154d ago (Edited 154d ago )

Okay the title of article should be top 10 , 3rd person games to complete 100 percent. Nine 3rd person games and 1 racing game on this list .
