        This is surely the coolest soundtrack I've ever heard.
        It's like collateral, drive and cannibal holocaust all rolled into one, amazing work.

                @CHAINSAW305 We will have news on the DLC very soon and we think Max Payne 3 fans are going to be excited when they hear what's coming. Stay tuned to the Newswire.

              I couldn't bear to play this on a feeble console controller, bought the PC version, f**k this looks great on PC Rockstar, like the f**kin 8th wonder of the world to behold this game, holy f**k the trailers are so great, %$^@#^**%$!. I just need a new computer to play it on...
              Going to be super rare PC game soon I predict, in a year you won't be able to find it in any shops at all in my area. Makes GTA look like a tranquil walk in the park with grandma. :) BLAM BLAM, AHHH F**K OWW! BLAM POW B*TCH! CQC WOO!

                Yee thanks for sharing this. I hope to get to a point with musical production that'll get people understanding my sound pallet to the point they let me turn their game into something like max payne 3. Much respect for ya'll for picking a perfectly capable group to do so. As well, much respect to HEALTH for knocking this out.

                'Max Payne 3', along with 'Hotline Miami', provided some of the best music I've had the pleasure of listening to all year!

                  One of the best soundtracks I have ever had the pleasure of hearing in a game, after months of extensive playing I still haven't gotten tired of it, and I still get goosebumps whenever Tears kicks in before going hi-octane in the Airport Terminal...

                  Nice video R* thanks, I love any behind the scenes stuff you guys share with us:D

                  Every soundtrack to a R* Game is something special and i'm glad that you never jump/ed into that Hans Zimmer river full of "epic" retort music. No, your soundtracks are what a soundtrack should be: the very soul of the whole thing and unique. I just have to listen to "Dead"(my favorite track -also reminded me of manhunt) in this soundtrack and i'm right on that cemetery on the grave of the Payne family and i feeling the tension that the mobsters are after me and the bitter mix of loneliness and fury.

                  Thanks for sharing this documentary!

                  This is definitely one of my favourite scores in my favourite game of this generation.
                  Too bad MP3 is criminally underated :|

                    I cannot express how happy I was when I heard that Max Payne was going to be getting a third installment. The series as a whole is a big part of my video game experience and why I fell in love with the medium in general. The music and the amount of polish in Max Payne 3 makes it my game of the year. Great job Rockstar, I look forward to seeing Max Payne in another ten years taking out foes from a wheelchair. Although if this was Max's final moment in gaming it was a fitting end to such a great character.

                      @DigenesDeity Who's to say this was his final instalment? The ending was almost like it was leading on to another chapter, I would love to see another MAX PAYNE game. Knowing his luck Im sure he'll run into another pile of sh*t somewhere down the road.

                      @Falconeye1988 I said "if" this was the final chapter. Trust me I never want this series to end. But with the age of Max in general coupled with the cult following the game has; I believe it might be quite some time if we see another sequel. I feel like this game could be Max's Redemption Song after his previous "Fall". The series could end with Max Payne 3 and I would be satisfied, that's all I'm saying. Great game and it stays very true to the series as a whole, definitely made for the fans. Thank you Rockstar!
