Max Payne 3 (PC)

With Max Payne 3, Rockstar deliver their best PC port yet.

Rockstar may make awesome games, but they’re also notoriously known for rather lackluster PC ports. Considering Max Payne 3 for the PC weighed in at around 30GB, people immediately feared the worst. They were expecting a rather bloated, clunky and troublesome game, but to their and our surprise, Max Payne 3 is one of the Rockstar’s best PC ports yet (for most at least). Sure the 30GB install size borders on overkill, but if you’ve held on to buy Max Payne 3 on the PC so far, you’ve made the right choice. PS: As far as content is concerned, Max Payne 3 is an identical port, so if you haven’t read our review, head here to get enlightened. As you boot up Max Payne 3 for the first time, you’ll have to sign into Rockstar’s Social Club and once you’re in, the Social Club will start tracking all your stats from the single as well as multiplayer side of things. To play multiplayer with friends or your crew, you can send them invites through the Social Club, but this aspect is a bit buggy on PC. Sometimes the Social Club will show both you and your friends offline, while invites will have to be sent multiple times before they’re actually received. I never faced such issues with the Xbox360 version. The game also has the annoying tendency to hang forever in during the loading screen and you’ll be forced to hard restart the game. This isn’t a deal breaker per say, but it can get quite annoying especially when you’re dying to jump into a few rounds with friends.
