Max Payne 3 is interesting because it both stays true to certain aspects of the series while deviating from others entirely. Combat is great, and the "realism" added to combat (limited weapon inventory, for example) doesn't hurt the fun of game like many other modern shooters. Cutscenes, although frequent, were balanced pretty well for me, but some might find them too intrusive. Unfortunately the game seems to ignore some of Max's character development from the second game, but Max goes through other interesting changes in 3 as well.
Stylistically, it pays more tribute to neo-noir than the classic film noir that inspired the first two games. This is not a flaw. In fact, it's a refreshing change of pace and an interesting approach. The video feedback effects and transitions in cutscenes are an interesting evolution of the graphic novel cutscenes of the originals. The vistas and dirty streets of Sao Paulo provide interesting evironments and exciting combat encounters, and the more realistic/serious tone of the game makes it a bit more thoughtful than the rest of the series. That being said, the writing lacks the creativity of the previous games. There's an occasional metaphor but for the most part it lacks the poetry of the (admittedly sometimes silly) dialogue and narration of the first two games.
Overall it is one of the best shooters I've played on a technical level, and it has an above average / good story to boot. Its visuals and style elevate it beyond a generic action game and definitely make it (for fans of shooters and cinematic games) worth playing.
