Max Payne 3 is a third person action shooter and as the title suggests is the third game in the Max Payne series. In Max Payne 3, players take on the role of Max Payne, who is a few years older and wiser to the point where he has grown tired and scornful of the what the world has become.
Max Payne 3 is set in Sao Paulo, Brazil which, much like New York, is its country’s largest, most populous city. The story finds Max working private security some eight years after the events of Max Payne 2. Max is eventually pulled into a conflict between two factions of Sao Paulo society.
