Nice blank picture OP.

The gameplay is the best in the series and some of the best third person shooting in any game.

The story is absolutely forgettable and a completely unnecessary addition to Max's tale. It should have ended at 2 or at the very least they should have got Sam Lake to write it.

9/10 as a TPS game
7/10 as a Max Payne game

The reality is that apart from the ending Max Payne 2 was a highly forgettable game apart from the ending, gameplay in MP2 was also fucked with its stacking bullet-time.

Amazing gunplay, too bad it only let you play for 5 minutes at a time between long unskippable cutscenes.
>>
IT'S PAYNE
>>
One of the best third person shooters of all time, the reason people don't like it is because it feels really out of place compared to Max Payne 1 and 2.

Granted, I kind of like that about it, to be frank. It's like if you plucked Max from his shooters and threw him into a different, more modern shooter. Which is sort of what happens in story, too. Max is thrown into a country and situation that he has no hope of understanding where he doesn't even speak the language, so it's natural that he feels clumsy there. That's how I feel, anyway.

You should play it, though. The core gameplay is probably one of my favorite shooters of all time.
>>
Fucking awesome gunplay. Forgettable story with too many unskippable cutscenes.
>>
The soundtrack is wonderful. That credits song Tears by HEALTH hit me like a ton of bricks. A good addition to the series
>>
>>323151829
Yeah, we all saw the parralels between the two. No medals for that. Heck, even Errand Signal guy saw through it!!

Its a great fucking max payne game which happens to cover shittiest part of Max' life.
>>
>>323152293
Oh, if I could name one really bad part of the writing- Max NEVER stops whining. The entire game, it's just bitch moan woe is me what an awful life and it NEVER ends.

IIRC there's one part where he stops feeling sorry for himself, and it's probably the best part of the game- and he immediately regresses back into it.
>>
flawed but enjoyable, the ost's godtier desu senpai https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JSbs4r5eFp4

I don't even remember the story, that's how forgettable it was. Max goes to Brazil and shoots some thugs in the favelas? That's all I got.

I didn't even finish it. What's the ending?

Its great though constant cutscenes kills the flow and the writing isnt on par with 1

I thought the writing was pretty good. A lot of games I've seen have cheesy as fuck dialogue (Bioware mostly) but in MP every sentence feels like it was written for a purpose - and written by a genuinely good author.

The part with TEARS is one of the best moments in any videogame.

>>323152554
To be honest I just spent a lot of time trying to sum it up and I realized even I didn't really remember elements of it.
Like I get whacking the family using the gang and taking the inheritance, while simultaneously using the militia and UFE to run the organ murder-racket under the guise of "cleaning up poverty/crime"

But why did Max even have to be here? It should've been apparent at this point that this guy was a berserker and nothing would be able to stop him.

I fucking love the game, it is a game about a broken, beaten man with a life that has forever beaten the shit out of him, popping painkillers left and right, being shot at all the time by armies of thugs, gangsters and police, Max Payne 3 completely captures that image, his wife has been shot, his newborn kid, shot

He is just a destroyed man, who wants to do his job

Max Payne and Max Payne 2 make repeated hints to the possibility that Max is effectively a Nordic berserker, and I think the droning beat of TEARS is fucking perfect for emulating it.

Like, you know what I'm talking about, the adrenaline bursts you get while playing a shooter? I think they call it "flow" in actual psychology.

>>323153779
Yeah but for who and why

They already had the gangbangers they hired to kill the family, why did Max have to take the fall for anything? Did they want him to clean up loose ends with the gang?

The gunplay is OK but constantly interrupted with cutscenes and set pieces. The story is lame and the scenery of monkey land is depressing. Next max payne probably in the middle east.

I regret paying full price for it. It's a pretty good game on its own, it's just that its not what I wanted it to be(as a Max Payne fan). Grab it when it's on sale.

The most memorable moment of the game for me was when the office is burning and you walk across a plank over the inferno and you CANNOT FALL. Whatever button you press max will walk along the plank. It pretends you're controlling the character but you're not really and there are other places like this. That and chest high wall shooting make it modern in all the wrong ways.

It is an incredibly competent shooter with some of the best feeling shooting mechanics I have ever played

Story is mediocre compared to previous entries and wayyy to serious

Unskipable cutscenes even on PC (don't give me that loading shite) even while in arcade mode

and the worst thing about it is that it takes away control from the player about every 1 minute for the first 2 hours of the game then it gets slightly better

combined with above I have literally 0 urge to go back and replay it

The game encourages you not to take cover, there's even a mode for it.

This, if it were just pre level cutscenes it would've been fine but this (and I'm not exagerating) takes control from you literally every 20 minutes or half hour, mostly for shit that isn;t that important or fo scripted set pieces
