Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne


The bullet-riddled, hyper-noir fun is as engrossing as ever in this sequel to the original third-person shooter. Ingenious level design is the game's hallmark: You'll be diving, dodging, and shooting with even more intensity than in the first game. Too...

Max Payne 3


With most Rockstar games these days, it's pretty easy to know what you're getting into beforehand. Mature storyline? Check. Violence? Check.

I find it difficult to be overly critical about Max Payne 3. While it has a few missteps and lacks the semi tongue in cheek humor of the original games, I found that the experience of Max’s journey to be far more engrossing than I initially expected....

Max Payne 3 PC Review


There was a time when we thought a third Max Payne game was never going to happen. The original developers, Remedy Entertainment, had sold off the franchise rights, and the new owners, Take Two, didn't seem to be interested in making a sequel. And...

Max Payne 3 contains a lot of wonderful, pretty moments and there is often a good chunk of substance there, but a few relatively small mistakes and technical issues have dragged it down a bit. There are times when I wished my crosshair wasn't a...

Max Payne 3 PC Review


It's a very different beast, but true to Max's spirit in the ways that count.

Gorgeous graphics and stunning sound; spectacular gunfights with tactical depth; the Max Payne mood

Multiplayer instability; bad boss battles and worse checkpointing; turret sequences awful as usual

I missed you, Max! There really is something about his signature brand of slow-motion gunplay that few other games can come close to. Shame about the multiplayer glitches, but I'd have wanted to play MP3 even if that didn't exist. Does broken or...

Max Payne 3 Review


God Damn It!

Beautiful; Violent; And everything in between; Gang Wars & Payne Killer; Tons of unlocks and weapons

An 8-hour campaign that took 12 hours; ...that take forever to unlock

Payne Killer is a juggernaut-esque mode that puts two players in the shoes of single-player characters Max and Raul as agents of death. The remaining players will have to team up to take them down, but once an attacker takes Max or Raul out, they will...

Max Payne 3 Review


After nine years, the troubled New York City cop returns. But has it been worth the wait?

There are plenty of games which are celebrated for their gameplay but lack anything in way of story or character. Max Payne 3 is a different type of proposition. The gameplay is simple yet satisfying, but it’s entirely in the service of a...

Max Payne 3


Nearly a decade has passed since Max Payne last brought his brand of violent street justice to a dark and unjust world, and videogames have changed dramatically in this time. And Max has changed with it, under the new direction of Rockstar Vancouver...

Max Payne 3 is a fantastic package, with a top-notch presentation and plenty of content to keep players busy and happy. It may have been a long time in coming, but there's no arguing with results, and Max is the kind of guy who gets them. Fans and...

Max Payne 3 Review: Death Transformed into an Art Form


Rockstar Games proves that the pen is mightier than the gun.

There's a moment in TonyScott's 2004 film Man on Firewhere Christopher Walken attempts to make someone understand just whatkind of a man Denzel Washington's ex-CIA operative John Creasy is. Hecalmly explains that, "A man can be an artist... in...
