I was wondering why I am the first one to review this game, but then I realized; everyone was busy playing Max Payne 3.
The gameplay is intense and action-packed. And you can finally recreate your favorite scene from The Matrix( which is why most people bought the first game), thanks to the ability to activite slow motion at any time. While diving sideways. With dual pistols. The euphoria technology makes every bad guy you shoot react realistically, depending on what gun you're using, and how far away you are from them. This ensures that no kill will ever be the same. The final kill-cams are a very stylish way to let you know that you've cleared the room; it follows the bullet from the barrel to the poor guy on the other end. This can lead to some cringe-worthy kills, as every bullet landed makes a visible hole in the victim, and(predictably) blood flying in every conceivable direction.
The immersive story ensures you'll never get bored, and the seamless( and I mean seamless) transition between gameplay and cutscene endures you'll never see a loading screen( except for when you're first starting the game) as they are disguised as the beautifully animated mini-movies.
The multiplayer and the Arcade modes add lots of replayability to this title ( as if it needed it) making it an even better option for your money.
Max Payne 3 will stick with you, even after the inevitable sequel comes out.
