The series that introduced “bullet-time” gunplay for dramatic and artful slow-motion shooting sequences returns with Max Payne 3. The gritty and vengeful protagonist, whose family was viciously murdered by drug addicts, has left his role as a New York City detective to start a clean slate in another country, Sao Paulo, Brazil. The action takes place from a third-person perspective as Payne utilizes an assortment of weapons to mete out his distinctive brand of justice. New to this release, Max Payne 3 includes a multiplayer component with Xbox Live integration. To play, choose a faction and battle the opposing team, using bullet-time and slow-motion dodges to gain a tactical edge on the competition. Additional objectives range from collecting duffel bags of money to disarming bombs in this riveting shoot-out video game.
