Gripping, Exhilarating gameplay. 10/10
19 May 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Coming back stronger than ever, Max Payne 3 is possibly the most enjoyable and well pulled off third person shooter to date. With today's standard requirements of what makes a great game lacking anything in a campaign route and mainly thriving towards multi-player, Max Payne 3 has managed to pull off both. In such titles as Call of Duty or Battlefield, the multi-player is all the hype and the campaign is unmemorable in most cases. However in Rockstar newest title they have laid out a gritty storyline with deep character driven language, adding to a gripping and memorable storyline. Difficulty wise, the campaign is really stepped up towards the end, in most cases I would have gotten stressed over death in a video game like this, bit with Rockstars method of seamlessly blending cut scenes into game-play you get a great film sense and can get straight back into the action.

Multi-player has to be the most surprising, given that anyone would have thought that incorporating "Bullet-time" Max's signature slow-mo move would be tough. But instead you hardly even notice it blend into the game play. My most favoured playlist has to be gang wars. Instead of slapping a bunch of players in a game and having them repeatedly kill each other to see who wins, Rockstar have added a more story driven series of rounds that are based around chapters of the campaign, but with an added objective to each round. This all an all adds for a more memorable and enjoyable multi-player experience. Not to mention the kickass action.

Final Thoughts. Weather you're diving through shattered glass or shrugging your way through hordes of enemies. Max payne 3 adds both the fun of Realistic and Unrealistic games. The outcome, my favourite Rockstar title to date.
