An ex-cop seeks revenge
With the subheading, we have actually already summarized the story premise of the entire Max Payne trilogy. In part 3, the run-down ex-cop is sent to São Paulo, where he wants to leave his dark past behind him as a security consultant for a rich family
If he succeeded, there would be no Max Payne 3, so it comes as it must: Max, struggling with his addiction to alcohol and pills, must fight for his life and for the truth on the streets of the Brazilian metropolis
We’ve even dug out our test video from 2012 for this Steam tip if you want to listen to the voice of our former editor Fabian Siegismund again:
The gameplay is already a big hit: The gunfights are so stylishly staged that shooter fans will still be raving about them in 2024. What’s more, São Paulo entices with some very cool levels.
But the story tops it all: The plot of Max Payne 3 is initially reminiscent of cliché-laden action films from the late 80s/early 90s, but quickly picks up speed and is particularly exciting with the character study of this visibly drawn, broken man.
If you now feel like experiencing Max Payne 3 again or even for the first time, you have a good opportunity to do so thanks to the current sale.
