Max Payne 3

The game went down with practiced bravado. Yellow backgrounds crawled across the sky, laden with foreboding.

Totally agree with the lack of a likeable character in Max, I honestly didn't understand his appeal in the previous games. He's such an emo wanker.

Anyway, that was partly the reason I didn't buy the game, as the interesting setting had also gone, leaving nothing new.

Hmm. I'll still take a look at it. Should have some fun playing with my brother, because considering my luck I'm virtually guaranteed to screw up the slow-motion bits quite spectacularly.

The story was a bit weak considering how much time they had to work on it. And what the fuck was up with all the twitchy triple image shit that took place every 5 fucking seconds?


Other than that the game isn't half bad.

Is rather odd that they decided to turn him into the dark and edgy thing he is now since he a bit of an odd ball when he first started out.

Yahtzee is pretty much Max Payne now, both are grumpy, cynical and can fly at people in super slow mo while filling them full of bullets.

So to summerise, he likes the actual game, but thinks the shit surrounding it is a bit meh.

That's a recomendation to me.

Clearly, some villains did not get the memo we've been circulating for quite some time [http://legendspbem.angelfire.com/eviloverlordlist.html]...

You mean you don't moan and complain about how you fuck everything up by getting a split while bowling?

THANK GOD I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO FUCKS UP THE SHOTDODGE!

He's such a dark drunk they should call him Max Stout.
Pretty sure that everyone does. The main issue is that I see people trying to shootdodge with shotguns and AKs.

It works best with SMGs, not quite as bad with handguns, but god help you if you try to shootdodge with a two handed weapon. GOD HELP YOU.

This game really could've been so good if it wasn't so bad, obnoxious, and broken.

I actually thought that the story started to become really colurfull till the end . When Max shaves his head its an instant IM awesome moment who came pretty fast .And every line he says is pure gold atleast to me . The soft voice of max is a relief from the grumpy military commando yeling "Comon" or "Move , Move , MOve " .

Ah, so it's another one of those stories where the main antagonist hires the main protagonist to stop all the bad stuff he's trying to carry out from some whacked out bizarro reason.

I thought the game was amazing, but I can't blame him for not liking Max. His depressed ramblings perfectly represents a broken and depressed guy, who feels like he has nothing going for him, other than his job.

I will say though, there was a reason why Max were meant to be the fall guy. I don't know the spoiler tag, so until then, I won't say a lot. Seems like someone didn't find most of the clues, or thought much about some of the characters.
