Max Payne Three
The first two have a special place in my heart, eagerly anticipating this one!

As long as the original theme song is there, with tibits of graphic novel story and husky voice narration, it'll be grand.

COME ON.

The artwork and the trenchcoat were all 2 had going for it.

Otherwise it was pretty forgettable gameplay wise.

Story was better in one but the mechanics in two were 100 times better. Epic 360 reload's in bullet time

I finished it three times in a weekend to see the second ending.

Given how incredibly linear the level design was (essentially the entire game is just running down a winding corridor) and how short it was, the game had almost zero replayability based on gameplay and I only made it through the second and third times because the artwork was so nice and I wanted to see the hardest difficulty ending because one of my mates had said it was different.

I enjoyed the first run through but it was fairly forgettable as a game compared to games like HL or Deus Ex which I'd go back and play over and over.

Fucking music in this is ace. Track playing right now seems reminiscent of that Drive movie with gosling...


3rd chapter. I was about to start saying its a seeming a bit to easy, then all of sudden I'm getting swamped and bullets are scarce.

As long as its not only five hours playtime like the last one, I'm gonna enjoy this quite a bit...

It's meant to be around 12 hours of Gameplay which is awesome.


Most importantly - Does it have the original theme song? Does it have the original theme song? Does it have the original theme song?

Chapter 6. Took me about 15 attempts to get passed one room.

The slow-mo kill cam when I emptied an uzi into the last guy at point blank was more satisfying than the last blow job I had, which was pretty good.




No, I will not be seeking therapy.

Hmmm... never played the first 2, but this looks awesome.

By all reports it looks like I shouldn't have missed the first 2... question is if the first 2 were so good do you think it would be worth playing them first? Not sure if I could handle 2001 graphics...
What you get is one full hour of rip roarin' rap music. Not by some dubious ruffians without the chops, but by a professionally trained voice man. It's just me out there.

I don't think you need to play earlier chapters of any games these days. Bar mass effect, even that's debatable.

The graphics on 1 aren't that bad for it's time; besides, the gameplay is worth it.

Rockstar gave all steam pre-orders a free copy of LA Noire today. That's in addition to the free copies of MP1 and 2 they already have given out.

Replayed each level on hard via chapter select thinking it would count towards finishing the story on hard achievement. It did not.

Pretty big fail.

Thinking of getting this, looked good on the Good Game review. Do I need to play the first 2 to get the most out of it or is it awesome by itself?

The story isn't linked directly to MP1 and 2. There are some subtle references to events in MP1 though.

It also helps explain why he's such a drunk in MP3
