Review: Max Payne 3
Bitching because Max Payne 3 comes with two weeks late on PC ... Try it and thank Rockstar for its leniency.
There are stocks that fateful moment when it comes to put a note in the small box provided for this purpose, we are asking ourselves a lot of existential questions:-does there not been too lenient? Still, visually it is quite poor. Still, it's true that it is not expensive ... And then there's Max Payne 3. To give you an idea of the impact of this game since it arrived in the writing, here are just a few numbers: producing goods fell 27%, while paradoxically, the number of hours were further multiplied by 4! As for our chief editorial, we hardly dare to tell you that two days ago, he entered the room in slow motion, pretending to kill everyone with his ham butter.
yes, no doubt: this third installment of the adventures of Max Payne makes hopelessly addicted, even a little crazy if you have impressionable mind. When asked whence comes this undeniable potential for seduction, again, there is no contest: we must simply thanks talented teams of Rockstar, who were able to adapt the concept of the original game, in providing it with a narrative rhythm, and a plastic related to its time, without distorting it.
Give time to the pellet
Concretely, what does that mean? That primarily means that we will find in this new episode all the ingredients that made the heyday of the two previous adventures: a linear story, interspersed with gunfights and nervous removed, the whole being literally carried by the famous Bullet Time System , a function that will allow the friend Max to slow down the action considerably, so it can better adjust the dozens of opponents who are sure to fall on him. There is a system on which he has not taken any ride since its inception 10 years ago, and still offers incomparable sensations: a jump in flexible and powerful, our hero can jump into a room, knock the three thugs who were behind the bar, turn around and kill the two gorillas who guarded the door. And it is fantastic, the better it works! As great as this scene properly, more dead than alive, we slim down from a bridge to chain the head shot victory, before finishing our gliding on the roof of a car, alive and free of all troublemakers. Good thing we have unfortunately not always had, the general difficulty being still quite relieved.
Note that if Max can of course trigger his power at any time, or almost (each winning shot swells a time bar, which empties gradually when goes into bullet time), the developer has also taken care to include this device in his narrative, the story of a little boost. A narrative that is moreover well controlled, even if we would have liked it because of color filters and other psychedelic effects use a little more measured.Certainly, one can easily imagine that Rockstar wanted in this way mark the alcohol side of the hero, but the visual distortions can be so redundant, they give a headache. Similarly, the length of the cutscenes, and the obligation of having to listen to them will get drunk in a few.
It is free, Max! (And a little drunk, too)
Fortunately, besides these minor defects, the game has a realization that we will simply call it "Wouaaah! His mother's class! ". At the same time, we must recognize that this particular point we felt a little afraid, given the specifications announced by the developer to enjoy the game at its maximum capacity: 35 GB of space disk , 16 GB RAM, Nvidia GeForce GTX 680 2 GB .. Good for us again, it will: it was a cave filled with this kind of stuff. But for the regular player who has not won the lottery lately, it promised to be tense.
Finally, it is not the case, since the game runs very smoothly on a machine relatively small, while still being visually appealing, as evidenced by the figures and screenshots below. The surprise is even more significant that the decorations are rich, and many physical effects. There will be little that the activation of specific features DirectX 11 hardware will require a bit more powerful. Particular, to take advantage of all available effects in the latter case, it will take onboard memory than 1GB.
Another good surprise is the life. While the second installment was satisfied about eight hours, Rockstar's version displays 12 to 15 hours to complete the single player story, not to mention the arcade mode, which will offer the player to redo the chapters by attempting to score maximum points. As for multiplayer, it will obviously clashes in deathmatch, but this should not be that part that will interest most fans, particularly because of the respawn points, poorly saplings. By cons, this exercise is to compare two players in the roles of Max and Passos (his sidekick in the single player campaign), against all other participants offer its weight of feeling, believe us! Finally, and if we were to conclude this test on a point, it would probably be on the soundtrack, most excellent, strange mix of South American rap, classical music and tunes who seem to come out of the series Miami Vice. Moreover, one can not resist the urge to leave you with our favorite song. Enjoy!
