I've played the previous Max Payne games and all sorts of other violent games like Gears of War and the COD rip offs but the violence on this game to me was shocking. I suppose it has a lot to do with the current setting of the Max Payne 3 story. The cruelty of some of the main enemy caracters and perhaps the frailty of Max in the game might be responsible for my feeling. I just felt uneasy the entire game through.
Also, I finished the game and I feel tired of it, a game that is constantly involved in shooting I found it dragged out in the last quarter of the story.
Have not tried the MP, will do this afternoon.
