Wow. Max Payne 3 is ****ing abysmal.

I've played just about 1.5 hrs and the amount of cutscenes interrupting the puny snippets of gameplay is rage inducing. Wtf is this?

So far it in no way captures the feel of the original games at all. It's been a while since I've played a Rockstar game but this one outright sucks.

The gameplay is actually good, but there's so little of it.

I take it you never played any of the Metal Gear Solid games as there is always a cut scene every second?

I've never played a Metal Gear game. I gave Snake Eater a try but it wasn't for me. I do have Rising and 5 looks incredible.... Not sure what this has to do with Max Payne, though.

I enjoyed MP3 once I stopped looking at it like a MP game. I just pretended it was some generic kill 'em and let god sort 'em out type of game and it was better.

My big problem is getting to play it?

You know the "Initializing" screen where you need to sign into Social Club? Social Club won't load up for me. I can't play it. I've tried everything anyone's suggested, and man are there a lot of crazy ideas, including from Rockstar Support.

I also never played a MGS game and I agree that Max Payne 3 is awful... I mean, the gameplay (what little there is) is really good, which only adds insult to injury

Is MP3 what killed the franchise?

Metal Gear Solid has even more cutscenes than Max Payne 3.

1 was great but I feel that the levels felt like filler with the generic drug motels and alleyways. 2 fixed this but had its own issues. Some people say Max Payne 2 is best, but I feel it has a glaring flaw in that it is too short. It ends where they should of had another act. 3 discarded more of the psychological crazy stuff in favor of more dark realism, but it's still an enjoyable ride, especially with the euphoria engine making hitting enemies really satisfying.

Don't play it like a cover shooter, don't dive shoot everywhere, don't even aim down the sights. Just running and gunning in slow mo is one of the most satisfying experiences that you can't really get as good elsewhere.

That happened to me, you need to delete some of your rockstar social club files so that it has to reacquire them and fix it.

I had to close the game because it wouldn't accept the passwords I tried. It kept telling me to not use symbols. I damn near quit at that point.

I went to the website to sign up and it turns out that the password requires a number and an upper case letter, neither of which were mentioned in the game sign up.

Problem is is that I HAVE TO play this game because it was over 20 GB download. Not that that'll solve your problem, but the social club thing is also bull****.

I don't need to be pulled out of the game for a simple conversation. Just let Max talk while I'm walking or running.

And what's with the words flashing on the screen during scenes? ****ing annoying.
