Back in style!

sivaprasanna | April 8, 2014 | Review of Max Payne 3

I'm simply out of words to explain this epic. I, myself, have thought many times that Rockstar Games is only good at developing open world video games but man, they have shattered all my thoughts with their all new Max Payne. The new Max is awesome, charming and all but when it comes to business, he is a freaking killer machine. Hit him once. Oh boy, that will be your last day on earth.

Pros: 1. Story is top notch. 2. Max Payne's iconic bullet time mechanism. 3. A completely revamped weapon wheel makes it easier to select your favorite weapons. 4. Stunning visuals. 5. Greatly optimized to run in all types of hardware.

Cons: 1. When you do shoot dodge, Max takes forever to get up.

I found it a little bit hard to aim with my mouse but with a controller you're good to go.

This is how you should reboot a successful franchise!

Crystal Dynamics has done one amazing job with their new game. Lara Croft, in all her glory, is back and with the objective to solve the biggest puzzle she has ever faced in her life. The environment and the setting is simply epic; kudos to the art director. The newly improved game physics and mechanics blend together and provide an exhilarating experience. One of the awesome addition to the game was the new 'bow and arrow' weapon. The story is freaking great and the weapon upgrade mechanism is pretty cool. The game's plot has been crafted really well thanks to Rhianna's writing. The supporting characters have done justice to their roles. Conclusion: Lara is back in town!
