Max Payne 3 continues the tale of former New York City detective, Max Payne. Still haunted by the memories of his traumatic past, Max begins a new life working private security protecting a wealthy industrialist and his family in Sao Paulo, Brazil. When gangs target the family under his protection, Max is forced to fight to save his clients and clear his name, in a bid to, once and for all, rid himself of the demons that have tortured him for far too long.
Max payne as a character is still morbidly depressed and deals with this in his normal means, pills and booze - but in keeping him so they have managed to capture that gritty noir feel without having the backdrop New York city and its darkness in play.
Bullet time, and the tweaked control mechainc does feel a little tricky at first but once you have it down, you pull off some of the coolest, most gruesome, slow-mo action kills in gaming!
Believable Characters, well written story mixed with overtop action scenes makes Max Payne 3 an Incredible Experience 9/10 from me!!
