    Glad I rented it instead of buying it.

    I tried it for a couple of hours and just could not enjoy it at all. I think this may have a good story line but the game is put together so poorly that I will never have the chance to find out. There are just too many c... Read Full Review

    Flawless Payne time... Rockstar delivers yet again.

    A Good but Flawed Game, ported from Consoles.

    Max Payne 3 is the latest addition to Max Payne series. This time the game is created by different developers (Rockstar instead of Remedy). As we all know that Max Payne started his journey on PC and both 1st and 2nd in... Read Full Review

    What made Max Payne's success? This series has so much elements that make it unique: The story, the characters, the gameplay... All the ingredients to make a good game are still here. But in the case of Max Payne 3, it ... Read Full Review

    Seems to be lack of original game's pace

    What stroke me by Max Payne 1 on PC was its story and action. It feels great when holding a rifile and jumping into the bad guys, and start shooting like hell.Max Payne 3, the story occurs years after the 2nd one and fee... Read Full Review

    Solid game, but isn't as fun as it should be

    Having never played the first two games, I jumped into this to discover for myself what this series was all about. This title, under the name of none other than Rockstar, held a lot of promise and I was at least expectin... Read Full Review

    Max Payne 3 is a satisfying and epic conclusion to the trilogy.

    Intro:Seeing as how the story arc nicely ended with 2003's Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne, Max Payne is back for one more adventure. This time, he's retired from the NYPD and has moved to São Paulo Brazil to ... Read Full Review

    Impressive set pieces, but no freedom and very little fun

    I really wanted to like this game, ( I did spend 50 bucks on it) but can't bring myself to. In fact, it may be the most disappointing purchase in recent memory. Here's why:First the good: In typical Rockstar fashion, ... Read Full Review
