It’s been nine years since the second instalment in the series, and Max Payne fans have not been disappointed by developers Rock Star Games. Max Payne is a former New York detective with a dark past (his wife and daughter were murdered), who’s now doing private security for a rich family in Brazil. What sets this title apart are the rich cinematic scenes and riveting storyline, underpinned by five-star game play. This third-person shooter is set to be one of the biggest releases of 2012, featuring a range of realistic weapons and Bullet Time – which slows down the action so that you can improve your aim.
Price: R632 (PS3 and Xbox 360)
Five-star game play!
