Max Payne 3

By Rockstar Games

Editors’ Choice

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


For Max Payne, the tragedies that took his loved ones years ago are wounds that refuse to heal.  No longer a cop, close to washed up and addicted to pain killers, Max takes a job in São Paulo, Brazil, protecting the family of wealthy real estate mogul Rodrigo Branco, in an effort to finally escape his troubled past. But as events spiral out of his control, Max Payne finds himself alone on the streets of an unfamiliar city, desperately searching for the truth and fighting for a way out.

Featuring cutting edge shooting mechanics for precision gunplay, advanced new Bullet Time® and Shootdodge™ effects, full integration of Natural Motion’s Euphoria Character Behavior system for lifelike movement and a dark and twisted story, Max Payne 3 is a seamless, highly detailed, cinematic experience from Rockstar Games.


Developed by Rockstar Games for a seamless, highly detailed, cinematic experience

Advanced Bullet Time® and Shootdodge™ and Final Kill-cam mechanics for stylish shooting action

Cutting edge aiming, targeting and animation processes for precise, fluid gunplay

A dark, twisted story chronicling the return of Max Payne, one of the most iconic characters in videogames

Tight integration between Natural Motion’s Euphoria Character Behavior System and a brand new iteration of the Rockstar Advanced Game Engine (RAGE) for lifelike movement and a new level of environmental awareness

A wide range of weapons rendered in incredible detail: hammers cock back, shells eject from the chamber and each bullet is individually modeled from the split second it’s fired to the moment of impact.

Advanced particle physics and destructible environments set the stage for dramatic and chaotic gun fights

One star is one too many

Like others, the game won’t launch for me. Of course Rockstar’s website has no mention of this current issue and no way to actually resolve it. I asked Apple for my money back. Hey Rockstar, if you had to take a guess, do you think I will EVER risk buying another game from you? In case you are as good at guessing as you are at creating games, the answer is no.


Please tell me what is the point of waisting 20 bucks on a game that doesn’t even let me play. Fix the problem or refund us our money. We pay for something we expect to get what we pay for. I want my money back.


Game will not launch.. Have to force quit app. I want my money back! How do I get it Back??? 0 Stars! I have a brand new mid 2015 macbook pro with discrete graphics. The game runs just fine in Steam on my 2012 iMac with an GT 650M! Note: Does not run on the iMac either from the app store!
