Is Max Payne 3 worth the 29 GB download on PC? photo
Is Max Payne 3 worth the 29 GB download on PC?
by Allistair Pinsof

It’s hard to see your favorite series on a different platform. I’ll always play Demon’s Souls and Final Fantasy games on my PlayStation 3, because anything else just feels wrong. The same is true of Max Payne on PC. Though we PC gamers had to wait a couple weeks longer, it didn’t matter that much after waiting nine years for a sequel.

The concern for PC players isn’t the wait but the developer. Rockstar doesn’t have a stellar track record on PC, either botching games (Grand Theft Auto IV) or forgoing a port altogether (Red Dead Redemption). Once reports came out that the game would take up a whopping 35 GB (or four DVDs), people began to worry for good reason.

While the insane download time may not be necessary, I’m here to say it’s definitely worth it. Rockstar got things right this time. Mostly.
