Strong Contender for Title of Worst AAA Game of This Console Generation

User Rating: 1 | Max Payne 3 X360
Max Payne 3 Is a terrible game in its own right. The shooting is terrible. The level design is worse. The fact that you spend more time watching boring cutscenes than playing is unforgivable. Max Payne 3 fails on every imaginable level as game.

What lowers the score from a 3-4 to a 1 is that Rockstar bought the Max Payne name to slap on this steaming dung heap of a game. This is NOT a Max Payne game in any way, shape or form. It is a loose remake of the movie Man on Fire without the solid performances by Denzel and Dakota, but with a lot of scantily clad women and drugs thrown in. It is an atrocity.

Rockstar's shooting mechanics usually get a pass because of the big open worlds they are known for. There is no such buffer here and it shows Rockstar at its weakest. The game is mercifully short which makes getting through it more bearable, but is yet another reason that you should not waste $60 on this title.
