Max Payne 3: A Unique Cinematic Experience!
If you are doubting the old Max Payne, then don't. Despite thriving on scotch all day, there is more to Max than what meets the eye. The protector in him is still young as he fights out all odds despite getting shot in many occasions.
The maximum pain depicted will take you on a high! Max Payne, the NYPD cop, responsible for single handedly crippling the Punchinello crime family, crushing Nicole Horne's Aesir Corporation, terminating the manufacture and trade of the drug Valkyr, is back after nine long years. A husband and father to a murdered wife and daughter, the Payne we see now is kind of expected. His life now revolves around alcohol, pain killers and bullet wounds. But somewhere, the cop inside him or shall we say, the protector is still alive.
As trouble finds him as usual, Max begin to work in Sao Paulo, Brazil for Rodrigo Branco and his family; his brothers Victor and Marcelo, and his wife Fabiana. During that time, Rodrigo is murdered, and Fabiana is kidnapped. Very soon, one will realise that protecting Branco's family is just one aspect of the game and there are other facets involving a series of double-crosses between some prime characters.
The entire cinematic experience is simply 'wow'. Max seems to be a one man army. Just imagine him hanging out from a chopper and shooting at the load from a RPG! The game is full of surprises and you won't even know how you will get caught in a fierce gun fight. The story is brilliantly stitched though it isn't completely sequential. There are times when Max suddenly goes in the happenings of the past.
The intensive research conducted by Rockstar is clearly visible in the game. Most of the game play is in Sao Paulo and the game matched the place in real-life as much as possible. The game is made to give you a feel of reality every moment. You get a feeling of actually being inside the game.
The game will occupy around 29 GB of your PC hard disk space. You will need at least a Windows XP PC (32 or 64 bit) with Intel Dual Core 2.4 GHZ or AMD Dual Core 2.6 GHZ, 2GB System RAM, NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT 512MB RAM or AMD Radeon HD 3400 512MB RAM, Sound Card: 100 per cent Direct X 9.0 compatible supporting Dolby Digital Live.
Most of the website who reviewed the game, gave it a rating of 8 out of 10 in average and at EFYTimes.com, we are really impressed by the gameplay and graphics, so, we will add another point to it. Max Payne 3 retails at a price of Rs 2,249 for both PS3 and Xbox-360 and the PC version comes for Rs 999.
