Max Payne 3 for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC

Max Payne 3 Release Date

I’m sure that some of you are getting tired of shooter games. I feel the same way too. The consoles are flooded with generic military shooters which are recycled almost every year and marketed as a new game for a quick cash in. They are basically milking the franchise. It is not that I hate shooting games. What I hate is the fact that the consoles are flooded with games that are a complete rip off of each other. Don’t get me wrong, I love shooting bad guys in the virtual world, but I’m looking for games that let me shoot bad guys while following a great story line. Speaking of shooters, I have good news for you. Max Payne 3 is coming out. I say good news because this game has actually a decent story line in comparison to your typical military shooter filled only with blood and gore.

Max Payne 3 is the upcoming sequel of the Max Payne series. It is coming to both consoles, the Xbox 360 and the PS3. PC owners need not worry because you are not being left out as Max Payne 3 is also coming to Windows. It was published by Rockstar Games. The writer of Max Payne 3 is Dan Houser who is also the lead writer of Grand Theft Auto series as well as the Red Dead Redemption. So if you enjoyed the way the story is handled in these particular games, then you might like Max Payne 3 too.

Max Payne 3 is a third person shooter in case you are not familiar with the Max Payne series. You take on the role of Max Payne. Max Payne 3 is set eight years after the 2nd game. Max Payne now works for the wealthy Rodrigo Blanco in Sao Paolo, Brazil after getting double-crossed. The kidnapping of Rodrigo’s wife will require Max to shoot many people once again.

Max Payne 3 will be using the Euphoria Physics Engine which will make shooting and killing enemies more realistic. The game retains the shoot and dodge mechanic of the previous games. “Bullet time” feature allows you to see the bullet as it goes through the body of your enemies. Another addition is the “last man standing” mechanic which allows Max to recover from a wounding shot by killing the enemy who inflicted it. The game will also feature online multiplayer which includes different game modes.

Max Payne 3 is slated for a May 2012 release.
