The Max Payne series has been a huge success on PC and now finally, Max Payne 3 is available on Mac.
Great characterization of Max
Max Payne 3 looks great. It's full of visual effects that add to the downtrodden feel of Max's tale, and the environments are beautifully brought to life. Rockstar don't disappoint when it comes to acting and voices, and Max Payne 3 is no exception. Max himself is cynically hilarious, and the soundtrack fits perfectly with the sound of bullets rattling around the favelas of São Paulo.
The multiplayer in Max Payne 3 means you'll be playing the game for a long time to come, but the single player campaign too offers some significant challenge. Even with Hard Lock, this game gets tough, but makes it all the more satisfying when you succeed.
Addictive first person shooter
Max Payne 3 is a worthy follow up to the sequel with great acting, plot and atmosphere. The action is challenging and brutal, but always fun enough to make you want to try again. It may not be as original or revolutionary as LA Noire, but Max Payne 3 is a much more accomplished game and an essential first person shooter.
