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 feels like drifting out of the country - just be a bodyguard and drunk for 99% of time. I don't feel the tense of story telling other than shooting the unknown shooters. I, as Max Payne in game, simply don't have strong intension to live or die, or whatever. I don't understand how he could manage to survive all those shooting combats after all.
In general, the game quality is good, it is just the storyline didn't re-create the greatness as Max Payne 1 and 2. I can give 8 of 10 as my highest. It really should be 9 though.
