Mid-week F.A.P: Max Payne 3

Max Payne 3

The weekend just passed ruined me. The destructocast was a massive success, even if we didn’t quite finish the best of the series of games we attacked.

As a result, this week’s F.A.P. is going to be a short one on Max Payne 3.

I have a massive tolerance for third person shooters. I will play any old shit and actually really enjoy it.

Max Payne 3 is ghastly; a long and painful slog through some of the worst cover shooting this side of Quantum Theory.

The storyline is a bore too. Max is miserable without any of the humour of the original two games. I think it is a testament to Remedy’s writing team that they were able to toe the line between the tongue-in-cheek and tragedy whereas Rockstar just delve into morose and rip off Man on Fire, badly.

Anyway, this minute was the only good bit in the game:

That’s your lot.
