"The way I see it there's two types of people, those who spend their lives trying to build a future and those who spend their lives trying to rebuild the past" - Max Payne
Max Payne 3 is definitely one of the most underrated games ever; the multiplayer was incredible and the story had a great tone and some really memorable quotes and set pieces. (The nightclub, office building, the stadium, airport, etc.) The shooting was excellent, the slowmo was done perfectly and the graphics were fantastic. Also most importantly they really nailed Max's character. It would have been nice if more of the campaign was set in New York and there were some better supporting characters/villains but it's still one of the best third person action games of all time. The multiplayer was unbelievable. They need to remaster this and/or make a sequel ASAP!
Omg the online was fun. Story was good too. But I did miss the New York feeling to the series a lot.
Thanks for commenting! totally agree. The New York feel that the first two had was electric. It was awesome revisiting them in the flashbacks though.
The load times were shit, but I would love a remaster that’s fixed them.
Thanks for commenting. Totally agree, especially on console
It won't make as much money as GTA Online, so Rockstar's not even gonna bother. Your best bet for a remaster is to just get it on PC.
Thanks for taking the time to comment. GTA Online is a monster I can't imagine Rockstar is even thinking about Max
thanks for taking the time to comment. I'm right there with you, the moment to moment gameplay was top notch and Max never felt more real than in this instalment.
I wish there were BC on the Xbox for Max Payne 3. It can't be that hard, can it?!
Thanks for commenting. Such a shame that it never made the cut. It seemed like a sure bet for BC but alas, we were shafted lol
I was always very surprised it didn't make it the backwards compatibility list, when most Rockstar games did. they even did a remastered Xbox one version of LA noir, but not Max Payne 3?... also a head scratcher.
This one deserves it.
Easily one of the best 3rd person shooters.
thanks for commenting. Abso-frikin-lutely. One of the best ever
So weird, I'm only now just playing through it for the first time on PC, up to the part where he heads into the favelas. Wish I'd played it sooner, but I'd never played the original two and was put off by that. Anyway, his commentary and the style (like the text that appears, the screen effects, etc) makes it so unique and enjoyable. And it still looks really damn good for its age, especially in the environments. Yeah it's just good fun. Shame I never got to experience the multiplayer, think it's dead now.
