The Return of Payne

by G. Christopher Williams

18 June 2012

This episode we consider Max's transition from the darkened streets of New York to the sun splashed swanky penthouses and seamy favelas of Brazil.
 

After a long hiatus, Max Payne is back. The voice of dirty neonoir is similar, but not all of the oft celebrated gameplay is.

This episode we consider Max’s transition from the darkened streets of New York to the sun splashed swanky penthouses and seamy favelas of Brazil. We consider how Max Payne 3 may or may not carry on the themes of loss and redemption of the previous episodes and whether or not a cover-based system is a benefit to a more modern version of the franchise.
