I've never seen, in all my years of gaming, a better game get as unfairly maligned as Max Payne 3
. Poor Max took a beating over misplaced nostalgia, negatively perceived industry trends, and changing developers all while Max Payne 2 - which was simply a terrible rehash of the original - got off scot-free because it came out during a less cynical time.
Aw, well, it's all in the past now that Rockstar has announced that Max will say goodbye on January 22nd when the last piece of Max Payne 3
downloadable content is released.
Called The Deathmatch Made in Heaven Pack
, it will feature all-new cooperative and competitive modes, new weapons, new bursts, new items, and new achievements and trophies.
The Deathmatch Made in Heaven Pack
will run you 800 Microsoft Points/$9.99 (unless you own a Rockstar Pass - then it's free) and will be available for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
