Max Payne 3
I know I did a blog on the series already but this is more of just a blog on third installment of the series. The video game was released for PS3, Xbox 360 on May 15th and for PC in the end of May. Like the last two games its was published by Rockstar Games (creators of Grand Theft Auto). The game is set in Sao Paulo, Brazil eight years after the events in the second game. Max Payne now works in executive protection for the wealthy Rodrigo Branco in the hopes of escaping the memories of his troubled past. When a street gang kidnaps Rodrigo's wife, Max is pulled into a conspiracy of shadowy, warring factions threading every aspect of Sao Paulo society in a deadly web that threatens to engulf everyone and everything around him. Many of the things in the last two games are in this game such as bullet time. In bullet-time it is possible to see every bullet make a hole in the enemies. There is a Last Man Standing mechanic, which gives Max a reprieve from death for a small period if he has any painkillers on him. If your able to kill the enemy that delivered the wounding shot with bullets he'll recover enough energy to continue the mission. Max Payne 3 retains the bullet dodge from the previous games. Max is also able to stay grounded after a dive, which enables him to shoot 360 degrees around. New to the series are cinematic action movements, interactive cut-scenes which transition seamlessly into continuing gameplay. Moreover there are loading screens across gameplay and cutscenes. Everything in the game is great except I would have to pay $30 in order to play the multiplayer for this game. I do not have $30 so i cannot play the multiplayer and I cannot tell you about the multiplayer obviously. I recommend you play this game especially if you loved the previous games as much as me.
