Trivia

The first Max Payne game not developed by Remedy Entertainment, and also the first not written by Sam Lake although he did make some suggestions like shaving Max's head. See more »

Goofs

Raul Passos' Brazilian I.D. card states that he is Colombian. However, earlier in the game, he stated that he was in the NYPD and went to the NYPD police academy with Max Payne. This would not have been possible, since only U.S. citizens can become police officers in the U.S. See more »

This game kills all but one word to describe it... AMAZING
28 May 2012 | by paxter-374-763415See all my reviews

Max Payne 3 is another excellent sequel to the first two previous games, that impacted games hugely, but this third sequel has raised the bar. Rockstar have produced yet another quite simply astonishing game that cannot be faulted at all. The writer of the story show off a great skill at displaying Max's deep and depressed life that he drinks away to an inevitable hangover, and constantly pops pills to try and fill his sad and disheartened hole that won't go away. The story has a genuine catch and a very deep emotional side to Max's life which is very intriguing.

Overall I think the game is one not to be faulted, and I can't express how much I love it. It is a one time great and a absolute must have!
