And of course, there's a diverse selection of multiplayer modes, combining team and solo-based favourites with a bunch of typical Rockstar twists. Crammed into this story of a fallen cop seeking redemption as a bodyguard in the crime-ridden mega-city of Sao Paulo, there are snatches of Heat, Carlito's Way, Elite Squad and most obviously Man on Fire, Tony Scott's homage to bruised masculinity and doomed heroism. The Branco family, from hard-partying Marcelo to local politician Victor, are well-off and offer Max plenty of exposure to the city’s elite. Max Payne 3 review Glittering, gruesome, and golden, this sequel raises the bar for action games By Sterling McGarvey 16 May 2012 Comments Better than expected!!! A customisable auto-targetting system lets players select between hard or soft auto systems, the latter subtly guiding your reticule rather than aggressively yanking it toward specific enemies. It is a sustained conceit that, in less assured hands, could have become tiring and off-putting very quickly. Both have global high score tables, but players can also compare scores against their friends, which should keep competitive Payne fanatics amused from sometime. We have been promised an interactive tribute to those balletic John Woo sequences for years, and now we have it. 7 /10 Read the Eurogamer.net reviews policy 18/05/2012.

Double-crossed and a long way from home, Max is now trapped in a city full of violence and bloodshed, using his weapons and instincts in a desperate search for the truth and a way out. Also, in later stages, the difficulty ratchets up as dissolvable cover starts to pop up, and you’ll see flimsy shanty walls and barriers become more susceptible to gunfire. (It's all in the name.) These have always been the signature components of the Payne experience, but here, within a series of hugely complex environments, and powered by Natural Motion's advanced character animation physics, they lead to moments of absolutely thrilling action, which perfectly blend the interactive and the cinematic.
