I’ll explain the title first. The title of these segments will be called “Thoughts on (game title)”
What are these?
“Thoughts on” articles are a way for us to talk about games, give a score to it (or not) and recommend or give warning. It’s really just a less structured review.
I chose Max Payne 3 for a few reasons. 1. Rockstar is my favorite developer 2. Max Payne 3 is one of my top 5 favorite games this generation 3. It’s only $4.99(US) on XBOX LIVE right now … YOU SHOULD BUY IT.
Max Payne 3 feels great. That’s how I want to start this because I feel that there are little things in games that go unnoticed. What am I talking about? F.E.A.R 3 has amazing dual wielding, but no one really talked about and I get that in reviews there is almost no room to mention these things but that’s what this is for. Little things. Max Payne 3’s little thing for me was it’s maturity. Max Payne 3 has this incredible presentation of brutal honesty while still being realistic and what makes that amazing to me is this game has Bullet Time in it but still feel realistic. There is a point in MP3 where Max is detoxing and shaves his head. That was so important to me. It showed this character who has been abusing pills since the first game and then Rockstar took it away. I got nervous. I got really scared at the same time because I was thinking “OH MAN there are going to be no more pills in the game. THIS GAME IS GOING TO GET INSANELY DIFFICULT!” and while that didn’t happen, I played the rest of game without using pills because I wanted to be honest with the story. I really could not get enough of this game. I perfected it on an old PSN account and still bought it TWICE for 360 because of how fantastic it is. I highly recommend that if you are going to get this game on 360 you buy the games on demand version instead of used. Why? You won’t have to switch discs and you’ll get all the multiplayer content for free.
