While it's a good price for what it is, I would recommend skipping this one and spending money on something else. Even discounting the first two games of the series (which I find to be superior shooters regardless), Max Payne 3 is a stilted and disjointed experience due to an overabundance of mid-level cutscenes. The game takes you out of the action far too many times to ever build up a decent pace, and worse yet pulls the old "switch to the weapon Max was holding in the cutscene, even though the cutscene started with you holding a different weapon" move. So not only are the cutscenes drawing you out of the game and breaking up the flow, they are ruining your combat strategy and effectiveness.
