I don't get it though. It's a third person FPS? He's just... like a cop that is on the run right? Or is it the story that's so awesome? And does it hold up to the time test (could I start playing 1 today and not be fully aware the game is 10+ years old?)?


I actually just got finished a couple weeks ago playing through both 1 & 2. I had never played them before, and had heard such great things about them. For the time it was a pretty unique game but you wont really find anything new or unique with them now as far as gameplay goes. I found the story in the first one pretty mediocre and cliche. I actually enjoyed the second much more.
To me it's the character of Max and his narratives that I enjoy the most and I can't wait to play the third one.

I love film noire too, not to mention hard-boiled detective stories. I remember playing Max Payne 1 & 2 when they first came out and was blown away. Great games. Heck, I still play MP1 on my Nexus 7 from time to time.

So there you have it, IkedaTeramusa. Gotta give Max Payne a second shot if you haven't already. And for being only $3.74 for the first two in the series, you can't lose.

I would wait for Rome II. Shogun 2 is IMO the best game from TW series, so if you enjoy Japanese setting, just play it more. Especially, if you've got Rise and Fall of the Samurai DLCs.

all of you left out the constant need to save and load on purpose, didn't you? :roll:

but 3 is an amazing game if violence is your thing.

I haven't played it in a long time. I played it soon after it came out, actually. I will say I finished it and immediately started a second play-through--as in the credits ended and I started the new game. The story, the atmosphere, it was a great gaming experience.

I'm considering getting Max Payne 3 from Amazon as well but I haven't played the first two. I might pick up Rage even though I beat it on 360 already. I kind of feel like playing it again.

So far the only game that hasn't gone on sale that I really want to pick up is Clash of Heroes

The graphics are great, the gameplay is a bit hit-or-miss depending on your tastes. Be warned that the game is more than 20gb.

It's like playing the Matrix, really. In fact, one of the most popular mods for it turned it into the mansion hallways from Matrix Reloaded.

It's a third person shooter with slow motion mechanics that allows you to dodge bullets and slow down time. The story is about a New York cop who walks in as his wife and baby are being murdered by drug addicts. This leads him to join the DEA where he stumbles across a conspiracy, and goes on a bloody warpath of revenge.

That's the first game. The second one isn't quite as awesome in story, but is even more awesome in gameplay.

Haha... I'm going through the same crisis with Risen 2 at GG. The "It'll be backlogged" part of my brain is fighting with the "Seven dollars! Deal!" part of my brain.

It'd probably be easier to just start smoking crack or something for my fixes. No one backlogs crack.

Probably going to pass on MP3. Would run horribly on my system (yes my system is even older than asheskitty's) and... it doesn't really look that appealing in the first place. $10 is a great price but if it's routinely $15 now I'm sure it'll be that or cheaper in future sales. No rush.

Giant Bomb had it in their top three worst, or was it most disappointing, games of 2012 if their opinion is worth anything to you.

I finally have a nice gaming rig and my steam library went from 4 to 25ish. I thought there were some nice deals especially if you are newer to steam.
