Great story, great dialogue, great gameplay, somewhat forgettable multiplayer.

This is the worst of the max payne games. The mechanics are annoying. As a game, it's okay. But for carrying the Max Payne title, it is not that great of a game. The older Max Payne games were less rigid and more open world, this game is proof that newer doesn't equal better.
I've played Max Payne since the first game and even played the Gameboy version, and this is still my least favorite of the series. It might be different if I played multiplayer perhaps but to me the combat felt sloppier and more of a frantic series of running from bullets pouring in from all directions as opposed to ballettic dueling like the original games. Also Max is entirely unlikable here, swearing more often, drunk and whiny and surrounded by unpleasant people. Graphics are nice and it might be fun for awhile but I found the new setting kind of boring, the story dull, and the writing grating. Not happy with this Max.
