Reviews for Max Payne 3: Rockstar Pass (Capsule)

Max Payne 3 is really a good title because it has a fantastic singleplayer with an interesting story but also a fun multiplayer with many modes and maps. I found Max Payne 3 multiplayer fun like the one of great FPS like Battlefield 3 or Call of Duty. If you want to add many new maps and improvement to expand the multiplayer, the Season pass is a good choice to obtain all the additional content at a lower price

Let's face it. It's Rockstar, and it's Max Payne. We all know that Rockstar make stellar single player experiences. I am pleasantly surprised at the quality and the enjoyment Max Payne 3 brings me. I purchased the Season Pass at a discounted price, and was extremely satisfied with my purchase.
The multiplayer is extremely challenging, the crosshair (it's really more like a dot) is frustratingly small, but kills get more and more rewarding as you get accustomed to the aiming in MP3. This season pass gives you all the available DLC's in one package. As of this writing, there is still another DLC coming (Painful Memories), so there is really a lot of value in the Season Pass.
I was surprised at how much I enjoyed MP3's multiplayer. I bought the game primarily for its single player campaign, as I'm sure I'd love simply for Rockstar's name alone. The multiplayer allows you to play as gangs in the game and customize your avatar. More and more customization options unlock as you progress up the ladder, bursts (think CoD perks) and weapons unlock make the experience addicitive, and customization options like shirts and accessories on your avatar makes the experience personal.
You DO NOT need the Season Pass to enjoy MP3's multiplayer, so the full $30 is a little steep IMO. I've personally enjoyed the extra stuff very much, and was glad that I purchased the pass. If you can get the pass at a cheaper price, I'd say get it, you won't regret it.
