When i first started playing max payne 3 i thought it was the same as the first two, bullet time with an average storyline. I was wrong, really wrong! Not only do you have a great story line but you have great characters that come in to the story like pascos and have a huge effect on the storyline. The thing that makes this game great is the small details that the developer has accuratly got, like in the cemetry level the head stone with his wife and childs name from Max Payne 1 and 2, and the constant references to his drinking and painkiller taking since the loss of his wife and child. The single palyer has a lot of twists and turns brilliant to play.
The multi player is exceptional, you can rank up and choose guns like in Call Of Duty but you can also have bullet time in multi player what a revolutionary idea!
To sum it up worth every penny and is awesome just play it!
