Max Payne 3: What we want to see

This is OUR list, but what do YOU want to see?

We're very excited for Max Payne 3. It's been eight years since we last dual-wielded Berettas and dived around, shooting mobsters in glorious slow-motion.

So it's good to know it's not too long until the release of Max Payne 3 now. We haven't actually seen a whole lot of gameplay yet though, so we're not sure of everything that will be in the game. However, we've jotted down a list of things we'd like to see in the sequel.

This is just what we want to see in the game, but what do YOU want to see in Max Payne 3?


Max's first two outings both featured an extremely dark and violent noir tale of loss and redemption. Max Payne 3 is set in sunny Brazil. Go figure.

We were just kidding with that last line, clearly it would be unfair (and a bit stupid given the developer) to write off Max Payne 3's plot just yet. Max Payne 3 will include levels based in New York for at least some portion of the game, so chances of a shower of doom and gloom are pretty high.


Max Payne 1 featured many themes and references to Norse mythology which gave the game a slight otherworldly feel, and was downright eerie at times. Max Payne 2 didn't feature such themes, but we'd like to see the supernatural tinge return to the story of Max Payne 3.

Much of the series' snappy writing is the work of Sam Lake, the writer of the first two games, who is currently at work on Alan Wake's American Nightmare instead of this. Rockstar has a tough act to follow. From what we've heard of Max's dialogue in the trailers so far, it's missing the flair, but we have faith in Rockstar and Remedy are apparently consultants on the game too.
