This game was criminally underrated. It's so sad that it didn't sell too well. It still has in my opinion some of the best shooting mechanics in gaming period. I keep it installed on PC just to mess around on every once in a while.

The gameplay was really solid. It truly felt revolutionary. No TPS comes close to how animations and gameplay blend together in this game. Player agency is never dropped.

This really was a great game.

Max Payne sold very well. Sold over 3 million copies in its first week alone. As of 2011 it had sold around 7.5million

Max Payne 3 cost 105 million to develop. The game sold 4 million copies by the end of 2013. Selling 4 million copies wasn’t enough to make profits. Also Max Payne 3 released in 2012 not 2011.

It still holds up today. Played through It fairly recently and it plays as well as any current gen title, at least on pc anyway.

Excellent game!

Was the game a flop in sales?
I had the idea that the game sold quite well... it just didn't sell as much as GTA or Red Dead.

I remember getting this for pc and playing the whole game in one sitting. It was stubby with visuals and a great game all in all. As you said, such a shame it didn't sell well. Would've loved another game.

Considering it’s pedigree that’s not a surprise, the wow moments decades ago with bullet time shooting and jumping back then in that period was the best for me.

I’ve pondered if the delay between 2 and 3 caused new gamers to have missed the first 2 when they were great for the time period and then 3 just shows up for the new generation and it fell flat since no connection was established.

The dark adult games would have been off limits to young gamers so only the older crowd probably played it, can’t see many 10 year olds into crime noire with drugs, drinking, sex, and murder. again reducing the potential customers.

played the game. loved it, but i don't think 3 mill in sales in its first week and a metacritic score of 87 was "criminally underrated"

One of the most memorable games that gen. Incredible gameplay and story. Highly underrated. Everyone was too busy playing COD. Unfortunate we may never see another single player, story focused game from Rockstar again due to online profits.

Enjoyed this game a lot. I'll never forget the day I picked it up. I walked like 3 miles to get it which I didn't mind. The pre-order bonus was $15 off GTA V.

It felt great to beat the game without dying for the "Shadows Rushed Me" trophy.

I'm so upset this studio got shut down both Bully and MP3 are some of my fav Rockstar games.

If Max Payne 3 cost $105 million to make, then that is their fault. They must have poorly managed their resources. I love the game, but they had to know that they are not going to make a profit on that budget.

RaidenBlack46d ago

Yeah, it was a bit mismanaged. I think Raycevick on Youtube, did a fantastic video on the game and its troubled development.

Rockstar must've shelled out a lot on pain killers....
