About this product
|The series that introduced "bullet-time" gunplay for dramatic and artful slow-motion shooting sequences returns after a seven-year hiatus with Max Payne 3. The gritty and vengeful protagonist, whose family was viciously murdered by drug addicts, has left his role as a New York City detective to start a clean slate in another country: Sao Paulo, Brazil.|
Yet Payne cannot escape the violence that has tragically shaped his character. Twelve years after the events from the second game, Payne finds himself victim of a double cross. An older, wearier Payne must once again rely on his primal instincts to find a way out of his quandary. The action takes place from a third-person perspective as Payne utilizes an assortment of weapons to mete out his distinctive brand of justice.
For the first time in the series, Max Payne 3 includes a multiplayer component that has players earning experience, acquiring skills, and completing objectives in a sequence of events. Players will choose a faction and then battle the opposing team, using bullet-time and slow-motion dodges to gain a tactical edge on the competition. Objectives range from collecting duffel bags of money to disarming bombs to conquering territory.

Even better than the old max!!!!!!!!!!!! THANKS.................
It loaded right up in my old computer and I've had no troubles at all. Works great in the laptop too. Max is up to cool stuff, and the bullet time is better than before.I also love the shoot from cover effect. All and all a definite winner. I would recomend it to any one, but not real young kids.

Not what I had expected!
This game would not install on windows 8.1. So I tried it on windows 7 and it worked. Has a little lag but not so much you can't play it. Can't play in god mode.Graphics look ok, Could be better!

I bought Max Payne 3 because I had just bought a new computer and installed a good video card and wanted to see how it would play. I had played Max Payne 1 & 2 and liked them. I was impressed with Max Payne 3. In fact I'm still playing it and having a ball. I wish it let you save whenever you want but it does give you more lives if you keep getting hung up on a level or scene. It will continue to give you more health until you complete the scene. Very creative. GOOD GAME.
