Max Payne 3 for PC is fantastic.

Supports DX9, 10, 10.1 and 11.

Supports FXAA, MSAA, SSAO, HDAO. Insanely good textures, reflections and shader work.

THREE levels of tessellation that you NOTICE when changing the settings.

This game is slick on a level of slick I have not seen in awhile. It's right in the top 3 for best looking games ever period.

How well does it perform? I hope it's not a mess at launch like Skyrim was

That's good news. It's too much to hope for that GTA V is as impressive, I suppose.

Also curious how it performs. Your system is similar to mine, so I'll have a good reference

Considering the graphics for GTAIV were pretty ridiculous when it came out, I'm still pretty optimistic.

Had to go to work before the last 3GB decryption update could finish. Sounds fantastic. How are the controls? How well does it run.

This is surprising. I know the past Max Payne games were focused for PC first but I expected that Rockstar would still manage to focus more on the console version while lazily porting it to the PC. I'd like to see some 1920x1080 PC screenshots.

That said while Max Payne was good for its time I can't really see it doing that well presently with all the other modern third person shooters. Still should be entertaining though.
