For Max Payne, the tragedies that took his loved ones years ago are wounds that refuse to heal. No longer a cop, close to washed up and addicted to pain killers, Max takes a job in São Paulo, Brazil, protecting the family of wealthy real estate mogul Rodrigo Branco, in an effort to finally escape his troubled past. But as events spiral out of his control, Max Payne finds himself alone on the streets of an unfamiliar city, desperately searching for the truth and fighting for a way out.
Featuring cutting edge shooting mechanics for precision gunplay, advanced new Bullet Time® and Shootdodge™ effects, full integration of Natural Motion’s Euphoria Character Behavior system for lifelike movement and a dark and twisted story, Max Payne 3 is a seamless, highly detailed, cinematic experience from Rockstar Games.
Multiplayer In addition to an expansive single-player campaign, Max Payne 3 will also be the first entry in the series to introduce a thorough and engrossing multiplayer experience. Max Payne 3 multiplayer brings the same cinematic feel, fluid gunplay and sense of movement of the single-player game into the realm of online multiplayer. Using the fiction and signature gameplay elements of the Max Payne universe, Max Payne 3 features a wide range of new and traditional multiplayer modes that play on the themes of paranoia, betrayal and heroism, all delivered with the same epic visual style of the single player game.
A feature debuting in Max Payne 3 and carrying over to Grand Theft Auto V and future appropriate titles is Crews, which go beyond traditional online clans by allowing players to join large public Crews or simply create a private Crew that members can customize. In this way, Crews help players keep the fight alive from match to match - and even across titles - through the Rockstar Games Social Club, which will keep track of Crew stats, including Feuds.

A fan of the original Max Payne, I purchased this game via Steam. That purchasing decision was itself a mistake because I am not a fan of the Steam system findng it crash-prone and difficult to manage. But how bad could it be, ehh? Bad enough it seems. Not even the use of Bullet Time can make this game very playable. Although the storyline is compelling and the graphics are extradinarily excellent, the mechanics of gameplay are difficult to manage. It's video console origins are all to obvious. The aiming point of your weapons is this little red dot that is often impossible to locate on the screen and the use of 2 mouse buttons to shoot is frustratingly hard even with bullet time. And to add further distaste, you are required to register on Rockstar's version of a social media site and reveal personal information. Max Payne 3 is just another example of the sad decline of computer gaming. UPDATE: After struggling with this game I finally figured out that it has another major fault which is now listed on the game description (It was not when I orginally purchased the game). Max Payne 3 is not compatible with an Intel 4000 graphic chip under Mountian Lion or Mavericks. The graphic incompatibility results in large black blotches that appear on your screen.
