      i dont get why so many people are complaining. Max Payne 3 has been good for me this past year. Yes some server issues but in the end NO OTHER game can give you that satisfaction that only R* can give. Now we are ready for V. Thank you R* for you guys are the gods of gaming.

          I bet most of you people (kids) that are ---ing about this game are brainwashed into playing nothing but C.oh.D and have never shot a real gun. come on guys... a few years ago a new game would have major improvements, like new/improved engines, graphics, physics etc... but now games like c.oh.d are just last years game chewed up and digested into a different compact disc. remember when a new console would come out almost every year? thats because the hardware got outdated and they released newer faster consoles with more advanced games. now they (whoever they are) realize that all you sheeplike people will keep buying the same old games from 5 years ago as long as they dress it up differently. long story short, im very critical about my games and i think they did a good job on max payne 3, i think its under appreciated...

            проблема со снайперскими прицелами. пропадает перекрестие. очень не удобно. прицеливаться невозможно. или исправте или удалите прицелы. ну что то надо делать, а иначе, я не вижу смысла в приобретения снайперских винтовок

                  I don't play this no more. RS should have fixed the real issues and not things that are not working. And I am sure even with a double xp weekend, you noticed that no one is playing! It is cuz it is crap. What a waste of money. the story line is the only good thing in this game.

                      I SWEAR TO GOD YOU PEOPLE AT ROCK* ARE stupid i just played a game of multiplayer and got shot clear across the map to death by a damn sawnedoff shot gun through the whole map you idiots are catering to kids. kids cant buy your games adult can. but if this is how you treat your consumers then i will not buy anymore of your games.

                        I had to come to the conclusion to trade the max payne in. nobody plays anymore, its like the game is pointless. it had a good run n gun feel but snipers mess that up like all games. i had when back and got battlefield 3 and red dead. preownd tho lol.

                          Gow-Aries1 is a cheater and a serious spawn camper on Max Payne 3 for the Playstation 3. This punk uses a modded PS3 console with an aimbot and a modified controller. He can usually be found spawn camping hardcore with his girlfriend christ-3-16. That is if they are on the same team. Their cheap gaming tactics really become clear when they are on opposite teams. One of them spawn camps hardcore getting all the kills while the other one takes multiple kills leaving his team at a severe disadvantage. Its ---es like Gow-Aries1 and christ-3-16 that are ruining the multiplayer aspect of Max Payne 3.

                            sawed shot got too much power and reach.what did r* do change the mini 30s power into it?

                              @PowdaBlaq absolutely not because the mini30 takes 3-5 shot to kill while the sawn off takes one shot to kill... so your assumption is completely false ...
                          • Se7en9neon August 9 2012, 3:34amReplyFlag
                            The mini 30 is not dead if you have the right attachments and the tuning has made the game more interesting i play with more variety of guns now but i also play a lot less because this game isn't as fun as GTA or red dead. I played both red dead and gta iv for like 2 years, i was getting bored of this game after the first few weeks. Fix the grenades they should be more like throwing dynamite in red dead with a guide or at least the option of having a guide. Why is there no knife or hand to hand combat? two of the most fun things about a Rockstar game. There's taunting but no kill cam to taunt people with? Max Payne multiplayer has alot of the rockstar fun elements zapped out of it.

                                why did decrease the mini 30 fire rate its a single shot rifle rockstar is killing they own multiplayer. the pistols are over powered fix that instead.

                                  @PowdaBlaq The changes that happened were a result of a lot of feedback from players coupled with our constant and daily study of the game's metrics, we think if you continue to play you'll realize that the updates only make the multiplayer experience better

                                  @ you are dead wrong because this game got sniper rifles you get hit in the foot and you are dead the m30 fires as fast as you pull the trigger i paid money for a fluent game not to get beat out a gaming experience.

                                  @ The update might be fine for those starting out, but as I said many of us who sweated our way to level 40 are now faced with players who are in some cases stronger than we are. The weapons are now completely out of order as far as power is concerned. I now get more from the 608 Bull than I do from any of the rifles, and that includes distance as well. I'm far from the best player in the game but many of us are frustrated with the way this change has turned out. And it seems that the light armour is better than the heavy armour. Again, what say you.
