Max Payne 3 - ***Use SPOILER tags***

Recommended Posts

can't remember which chapter it was, but by the time i started my 8th re-try of a "rumbling" section, the audio blacked out completely... and when i finally died again, the system froze on me... and i occasionally noticed the audio cut out for a second here and there, but that's pretty much the only issues i ran into...

Yeah same with me. That's Chapter 12.

I had a lot of issues with the audio cutting out at various points. Thought it was just the 2nd disk, but it seems to happen randomly on both disks.

As for the game, completed it with all the golden guns and really enjoyed it. Only did it on easy with hard-lock aim though because I suck with the analog sticks but it was fun.

Just a shame

the cheats you can unlock, such as infinite ammo mean that your stats or achievements aren't counted. Not exactly the kind of game I'm going to replay using the cheats for no reason after unlocking them >_<.

This is the first Max Payne game I've played and I enjoyed every minute. Great action, story, characters etc.

Feel almost ashamed for missing the first two so I've just downloaded them both off the Xbox Marketplace :)

i gotta say, after having some time to reflect on the game, it might be one the best stories ever... the combination of max's character, with the situation unfolding in front of him, and from his perspective as well, reflecting back on a life full of shit, in between piling more bodies on top of a new pile of shit, etc...

it's good... i think it's really good, for video games of course... but it's R*'s attention to character building that helped bring a mad man with one crazy fucking life, back to life in another time in his life... it's been 10 years since max payne 2, and R* made that transition perfectly... he's a more humble max, and more wittier than ever... it makes the story hold so much more weight when the character is actually driving and not another robot...

Just finished and waiting for the credits to finally end. Good game. Plenty of action. That second-to-last part (inside a large structure) sucked balls. I kept dying until I watched IGN do it to figure out the trick. Rockstar has made another game that plays out as an epic movie.

I can't help but laugh at the credits because there's so many "Da Silva", "DaSilva" and "Silva" names. Where's all the GTA V proud americans yelling up a storm about hints? :P

edit: Multiplayer froze on me the first time. When I finally got in a game, it sucked. I'm not sure if it was the soft lock or the loadouts of others but it was horrible. I obliterated people's heads yet I was the one that died quite a few times. Internet wasn't bad at all either. Someone else mentioned the spawning issue already but it was that office map so I expected that. I really don't think I'll be dabbling in multiplayer too much.

yea, it showed signs of fun, but it never grabbed me... i guess i am just not really into multiplayer... GTA multiplayer has been the only one to grab me, and i still play GTAIV to this day online...

@fitty

are you talking about the baggage escalator entrance, the airport shootout, the metro train battle, or the final battle with that fucker lobbing grenades at you?? the car chase afterwards was quite rewarding... but the entrance to that chapter was what made the game for me... max knew he was about to enter hell in the baggage room and it started it off in grand fashion... but that final boss battle that also tied into the intro scene to the game was absolutely the hardest part of the game... i died there about a dozen times until i finally found a path away from the little ass cover they start you out at...

Yeah the final big battle. Everytime I moved out from that cover I got killed. Even worse when a quick cinematic showed him killing me. Pissed me off. Trick was to stay put and the cover acts as a "cushion" of sorts. The last bit was fine. I did that no problem.

it helps, but

once the jeeps showed up, you had to quickly take all of them out, then shoot the grenade thas was heading your way... my problem for the first 12 tries was i couldnt dispatch everyone before he threw another grenade... once i did, i made my way up the airplane stair cart then, shot the next grenade after it had barely left his hands... i was ready to shoot him from up there, until i blew up that grenade and a cut-scene began...

I'm alright. Got over 500 kills now. Rank 16 or 17 I think. Still get frustrated by how I can shoot someone 10 times in the back for them to turn around and 1-shot-kill me in the shoulder though.

What's the best way to get XP? Gang Wars? I've got most of my XP from playing single player on arcade mode to be honest. Seems Gang Wars gives the most of you get a decent number of kills or help with the objectives

I'm almost level 38, with a 2.58 K/D ratio to brag with, however multiplayer has been pissing me off lately.

I am on the same ratio level 50 with a 3.01 k/d ratio.

multiplayer is total shit. it is very disappointing on how I got frozen my ps3 5 in a day and got booted 8 times, after that I stopped playing max payne.

here is my analyses for those wondering how multiplayer is.

for those who disagree, I apologize if this opinion gives you a grudge against me

every cocksucker is using either the mini30, dual pistols or dual uzis.

the machineguns or better yet assault riffles are way too underpowered

the submachineguns are way overpowered to be using 9mm and 45acp while obviously a 357 would do more damage.

This is also a problem when it comes to uzis. real life uzis are very realible and accurate guns, but this does not account to the cousin shorter barrel version mini uzis and mac10 specially if you are dual wielding it, at close range it suppose to do a lot of damage and have a lot of spread, but I have shot the duals from across the map and still kill someone, this is ridiculous.

wtf the matter with the FAL it barely holds 20 rounds. they should at least make the gun a little more powerful.

the mini30 is supposed to be a caribine rifle that shoots 5.56x54mm bullets, I understand that this is a powerful bullet, but lord the gun shoots way to fast and it has too much of range, almost as a sniper rifle. they might as well make it a sniper bolt action rifle if is going to do that much damage.

dual wielding is a major problem in this game, it is almost as call of duty bad. this game forces you to use dual weapons if you are carrying a handgun, since they both have the same stats no accuracy or range is affected by this, which is very unrealistic, I have killed people with dual guns from across the map. the only drawback of using dual pistols is running out of ammo faster, but seriously there are so many bodies in a game match that looting for ammo is never a problem.

shotguns have a really good range, but the damage is the problem, most shotguns kill with 2 to 3 shots, usually if you shoot someone at close range with a shotgun he can say byebye to his limbs, but this is not the case in mp3, shotguns do the same damage at far and short distances. (excluding the first shotgun which does way too much damage)

the g6 is one of the last assault riffles you get once you reach level 40, it is as useless as the fal, the only good thing about it is the range.

now what is the problem, all guns have some drawback, with one exception, the mini 30, it holds and incredible amount of ammo, and you are dead usually in 3 shots, I gotten killed with 2 shots wearing a heavy armor (and they were shots to the finger, go figure). so what is the point of all the other guns, if most morons are using the most overpowered gun, I had a game once that everyone was using the mini30, and I am not exaggerating.

the armors are somewhat under-powered or not properly representative of a real life armor.

the heaviest armor is supposed to literally stop 9mm bullets. but I gotten killed with to or 3 shots to the chest with a m9.

the glock is among one of the most under-powered guns and is the last one you get. the accuracy of this gun is terrible and so is the range, it runs out of ammo in less than 2 seconds. and it takes you a whole clip to kill someone, what is the point of unlocking it at level 40? you cannot even put a silencer on it.

I have tested most of these problems with friends over private matches, to take away the biased factors out of the equation. but yeah this is multiplayer for max payne, a payne in the ass.

anyhow I was wondering if anyone would be interested in adding me as friends I want to kind of enjoy multiplayer a little more, by going on private matches, where we can set our own rules.

here are my stats

KILLS 10859

DEATHS 3869

HEADSHOTS 1041

ASSISTS 2369

LOOTS 1297

DISTANCE TRAVELED 618,516 M.

R* has issued a warning to those ruining the experience... and i think it might be one of the greatest things i ever heard... they're going to throw all of them into a dedicated cheaters server, and let them duke it out amongst themselves... lol, it's brilliant!! they're not taking the experience away from them, they're just making them all play against other cheaters... lol...
