Set in São Paulo, Brazil, where Payne is working in the private security sector for a wealthy local family, set eight years after the events of the second game.
Excellent game. The story and the characters are not nearly as tightly written as the previous two games, but for coming from a completely different developer, it is still an amazing experience. Easily the best third-person shooter I have ever played gameplay wise. Great gameplay, amazing visuals, it's all up to Rockstar's par of quality. Unfortunately, Max Payne fans generally do not like this game because of the difference in tone, and Rockstar fans generally do not like this because it's not open world. I'm fortunately a great fan of both and can appreciate the effort Rockstar took to take homage to the original games while still making it their own project. That is absolutely the best way to explain this game; it's a Max Payne game, but it is Rockstar's Max Payne.
that's TOO AWESOME

Excellent game, great story, new effects, the ultimate experience in Max Payne franchise.
By the way, play with my character in the multiplayer. You can find my face as "Elvis" in the TROPA Z customization. I'm the one with the AK-47 in this image Gamepur.com
Even though Max here has a completely different personality, it still makes sense. Max has had so many tragedies in his life... from his mother's death... to killing his father... to his family getting killed... to Mona Sax getting killed (in Detective mode)...
so it really makes sense that Max turns to alcohol, cigarettes, and pain killers.
If any one wants to know why Max is different here... just read the comic book Max Payne 3: After the Fall written by Sam Lake and Dan Houser.
Don't forget about the great graphics...
The AWESOME gameplay...
The realistic blood and ragdolls...
Even with all those things said... I would have loved this game better if Rockstar put more flash backs into the game. CHEERS!!! :D
