By the time we'd finished Max Payne 3, we'd killed over 1400 people. From start to finish, the game is a violent tornado of death and destruction, and one of the bloodiest, most relentless shooters ever.

Concept:Max Payne 3 fires direct hits with both its story and gameplay, and will keep you playing with its robust multiplayer offering
Graphics:Gore meets beauty – Headshots deliver cringe-worthy explosions of brains and blood, and no details are spared in making the world look as realistic as possible
Sound:The band Health contributes a wonderfully dark and atmospheric score. James McCaffrey nails his performance as Max Payne. All of the voice work is exceptional
Playability:The gunplay fits like a well-worn glove, yet is enhanced through smart encounter designs and big set piece moments
Entertainment:The campaign is a fantastic ride, and Arcade mode (scoring challenges) adds longevity to the single player mix.
Multiplayer is as enjoyable and deep as any other package on the market
