For Max Payne, the tragedies that took his loved ones years ago are wounds that refuse to heal.  No longer a cop, close to washed up and addicted to pain killers, Max takes a job in São Paulo, Brazil, protecting the family of wealthy real estate mogul Rodrigo Branco, in an effort to finally escape his troubled past. But as events spiral out of his control, Max Payne finds himself alone on the streets of an unfamiliar city, desperately searching for the truth and fighting for a way out.

Featuring cutting edge shooting mechanics for precision gunplay, advanced new Bullet Time® and Shootdodge™ effects, full integration of Natural Motion’s Euphoria Character Behavior system for lifelike movement and a dark and twisted story, Max Payne 3 is a seamless, highly detailed, cinematic experience from Rockstar Games.

Tight integration between Natural Motion’s Euphoria Character Behavior System and a brand new iteration of the Rockstar Advanced Game Engine (RAGE) for lifelike movement and a new level of environmental awareness

Launches on Mac, but not my Computer - Bought this app the moment is was available on the store. Waited for 4 hours..and it fails to download at 32.5 out of 32.51GB. Wow. Downloaded again after a computer restart and it works. I open the game but it launches with minimum settings and resolution. (low/800x600.) I have an iMac that exceeds the requirements so I bump things up. It restarts the game…gets stuck on the loading screen. I force quit, try to open the game again, and now the game won't even open at all. So fail. Also for the record this is a Cider title done by Transgaming, not a native port done by Rockstar. At the moment I've submitted a ticket with rockstar mac support, but I paid good money and spent a lot of time downloading this game. It should work and not fail to load just because I change the resolution.

Will…not…start!!! - Is it so hard to make your product work after buying it? It will not reflect well on your customer support to let it slide.

Version 1.2.0

FINALLY PLAYABLE! - I purchased this game AWHILE ago and it wasn’t playable without severe hiccups, even when NVIDIA started releasing their optimized WebDrivers. That was an older OS (10.9, 10.10?) and with a GTX 680 2GB in a 2009 MacPro 4,1 16GB RAM. I just got an EVGA GTX970 4GB (no EFI) and am now on OS X 10.11.x with NVIDIA’s latest WebDrivers and I noticed this game had been updated and wanted to give it another go. I went all out, changed all settings to HIGH, FXAA off, anisotropy 16X—RUNS. LIKE. BUTTAH! This game is finally fluid and fun but it sure to a heck of a long time to reach a playable state! I just played through to Chapter III in one go and am finally enjoying the game.

Terrible - Game will not launch.. Have to force quit app. I want my money back! How do I get it Back??? 0 Stars! I have a brand new mid 2015 macbook pro with discrete graphics. The game runs just fine in Steam on my 2012 iMac with an GT 650M! Note: Does not run on the iMac either from the app store!

One star is one too many - Like others, the game won’t launch for me. Of course Rockstar’s website has no mention of this current issue and no way to actually resolve it. I asked Apple for my money back. Hey Rockstar, if you had to take a guess, do you think I will EVER risk buying another game from you? In case you are as good at guessing as you are at creating games, the answer is no.
