  • “Max Payne” More Havoc than Before

    Max Payne 3 isn’t showing signs of age.

    It seems everything Rockstar Games touches turns to gold, from the Wild West gunslinging in Red Dead Redemption to the gripping adult drama in L.A. Noire. They even made table tennis cool.

    Their next project proves a bit tougher: resurrecting one of the beloved franchises of the PlayStation 2 era.

    It’s been nine years since video game players last visited a new adventure starring Max Payne, the New York City police detective known for slowing time to artfully dodges bullets and wipe out groups of enemies with ease.

    Fortunately, as Rockstar shows with the release of Max Payne 3 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, their lead character isn’t showing signs of age. Developers have made clever use of Max’s signature technique while injecting gorgeous visuals and a captivating story.

    No longer working as a detective, Max has become a broken man. Having lost his wife and daughter, he copes by throwing down scotch and popping painkillers like Skittles. He manages to pull himself together enough to take on private security work, protecting Brazilian businessman Rodrigo Branco and his wealthy family.

    The plot hops between Sao Paolo and New York, flashing back to how Max met Raul Passos, the friend that hooks him up his security gig.

    Max Payne has a lengthy history with video game players, dating back to his 2000 debut for PlayStation 2 and the original Xbox. His last fresh console adventure would arrive in 2003, titled Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne.
