It's definitely worth a play-through. Gunplay is extremely satisfying and brutal, although, I wish there was gore. --- Do you get to the Cloud District very often? Oh, what am I saying; of course you don't.
Not counting the part where you follow a guy that drags himself from an explosion missing limbs and have the option to put him down.? --- I think I'm the only person on gamefaqs with a daughterboard - ToastyOne New with a moderation history more plentiful than karma. - Fossil (Moderator)
I thought the gameplay and cutscene transition was awesome, and loved the storyline. Not as heavy as the previous two, but a very good game nonetheless. --- http://www.steamcommunity.com/id/daylecman Phenom II X6 1075T @ 3.5GHz - 4GB DDR3 - 120GB SSD - GTX 460 1GB - Blackwidow Ultimate

There isn't anything like that, outside of setpieces, from what I remember.
You must not be making many headshots. There is plenty slow-mo gore in those.
To answer the TC's question, yes definitely worth playing through. Max's monologue is top notch and so is the gameplay. --- i7 3770k @ 4.5GHz  HIS IceQ X^2 7970 |1200|1600|3GB|  16GB Ripjaws Z 1866  ASRock Z77 Extreme4  250GB Samsung 840  2TB Barracuda  CX 600 PSU  H80i
Writing isn't nearly as good as Max Payne 1 and 2.
Personally I'd recommend waiting til it's under $10 during a Steam sale.
I don't wanna be that guy but playing it as a cover shooter is playing it wrong. Cover is just the last resort. --- http://www.speedtest.net/result/2063467937.png Deleted my old sig since some mod apparantly got offended because I mentioned Penn State.
