It's been a while since I've actively done anything here. I've been so busy lately, but now I can spare some time. I just completed Max Payne 3 and decided to write a review as a way to get back in. It's been like 6 years since my last review. I hope I have time for more in the future. I've been a big fan of the game since the first one came out and I've been eagerly awaiting this game and I had a blast with it. I'm glad that they brought this game back and still maintain the essence of the original despite its changes to the modern era. After completing it, I just felt like sharing my thoughts about it in a review.
Here's the link:
If you guys need a breakdown of how I review games, here's how it works. It follows the classic Gamespot approach that each category is graded out of 10 and the certain scores have a specific weight to them. Gamplay: worth 0.3 pts, Presentation: 0.2 pts, Sound: 0.1 pts, Value: 0.2 pts, Tilt: 0.3 pts.
Gameplay is self explanatory; it is essentially how the game is made and plays. Mostly game quality.
Presentation is more than just the graphics. It is how the game presents itself using what it has and the level of artistry.
Sound includes the voice acting and musical score.
Value is how well the holds up during the experience you play it and how long it lasts.
Tilt is the lasting impression and how much credit I would give it. If it was fun or if I liked how the game was put together, then it'll get more in this category. Depending on where it is in respect to the other categorial scores will push it up or down in the 0.5 range of the new system.
With this point system, a game can end up with a score between the 0.5 intervals the new system implements. But the score presented at the top of my review is what it gets with the new Gamespot system.
I hope you guys enjoy it. Let me know what you think!
Thanks a lot,
