I did 2 playthroughs, 2nd time i didn't use the cover system and relied on guns blazing and bullet time, Way more fun.

Max Payne 1 and 2 didn't use cover systems, I think that's how 3 should be played, and it's definitely a blast

I thought the gameplay and cutscene transition was awesome.

From what I have seen, practically half the game is a cut scene? This is why I have stayed away, and am waiting for it to be a really massive price drop...

Definitely worth a play through. The game was amazing especially if you are a Max Payne fan.

How dare a game have story and use cutscenes in place of loading screens! GRAAAAAAAAH.

game goes into a cutscene after you open a door, press a button, walk around a corner on unsuspecting's fun but it's soulless.
break it down
roll it up

On it's own, its one of the best TPS released this gen.

It's still got world-weary and cynical Max Payne and his noir monologues. Gunplay is really good to and it's got a nice physics engine.

Worth playing if you're a fan, but damn, do those cut scenes get annoying.

So, I went ahead and got Max Payne 3... and I don't think I've ever been more disappointed by a sequel. The noir graphic novels being replaced by poorly done cutscenes that for some reason have random words flash on the screen in some vain attempt to be cinematic or artistic is so inconsistent with the feel of the series. Like somebody said above, the writing isn't nearly as good; it feels like a very weak attempt at imitation.

The weapon limit and cover mechanics are so out of place in Max Payne... and shoot dodge that results in you crashing into things doesn't really fit either.

The game was also filled with (based on my fix searches) many common technical issues. For some reason the game kept "pausing" during cutscenes; this seems to be an unsolved issue on Rockstar's knowledge base for the past year. There's also frequent crashes.

I didn't get that far because the technical issues stopped me from having any fun.

This is kind of easily remedied by not shoot dodging into walls.
