    Max Payne 3 is one of those sequels where people make shit up to criticize the game because waaah it's not the original studio, even though Rockstar and Take 2 had been involved with both previous MP games. No atmosphere or horror? Please. It's a fucking Rockstar game and they do atmosphere better than anyone else.

    Pre-release was the worst because people wrongfully equate noir to black and disregard all the noir movies and tales that take place in sunny, bright locations.

    Only thing I didn't like was that we couldn't understand the brazilians talking during the shoot outs. Some of the best moments in payne were listening to them talk shit to you or on the other side of a door before you busted in.

    After your first playthrough you can have subtitles on. I think you learn a lot more about the story if I remember correctly

    Oh wow I didn't know that. I'd rather have the audio but that's not bad either.

    The best thing in MP 3 were the flashback Jersey chapters. Max in Brazil was a weak move, didn't suit the series.
