Max Payne 3 was released in 2012 and, in our review, we said “There are plenty of games which are celebrated for their gameplay but lack anything in way of story or character. Max Payne 3 is a different type of proposition. The gameplay is simple yet satisfying, but it’s entirely in the service of a strongly-authored narrative.”
L.A. Noire was released in 2011 and, in our review, we said “I struggle with L.A. Noire, because at times I love it, yet it has some notable flaws. As a noir fan, I find moments that really get me grinning. There are certain cases that draw me in and side characters who eat up the scene. But it never adds up — amazing pieces that don’t quite amount to an incredible game. At the same time, no one’s ever played a game like this before.”
