The tale of the New York City Detective continues with Max Payne 3. Memories of his gruesome past still continue to haunt him while he works as private security for an affluent industrialist in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Gangs target the family of this industrialist and he must undertake a direct confrontation and battle the forces to ensure the safety of his clients. On a more personal level he is also looking to banish the demons of the past that have long plagued him.
A game of courage and pure adrenalin, Max Payne 3 at first tends to surprise with its multiplayer experience, as Max Payne’s story is hinged on immense personal strife and tragedy which he endeavors to cope with. A single player style narrative with a multiplayer gaming experience—this game offers what would otherwise seem like a paradox, but the two work in great synergy to make the gamer want to come back for more. The game offers unmatched levels of customization and the user experiences a superb sense of control.
For the multiplayer experience, the game has a new mode called “Gang Wars, ” where the objectives are standard multiplayer type. However, the force is not on the story but to highlight the drama, as each round of challenges builds upon the story and achievements of the precious rounds. The objectives remain connected and a voiceover by Max himself ties it all together. These objectives border upon individualism and inter-dependence such that no one team can dominate the other.
The player is offered an extensive range of realistic and state of the art weaponry and sophisticated “Bullet-Time mechanics.” In addition to this, the player is enthralled by “bursts” which are special abilities that are unlocked as the player accumulates XP. You can fling yourself through the air and this enhances the multiplayer further.
This is one game that all Max Payne fans have been waiting for. For the yet to experience a Max Payne game—this is the right place to start your journey!
