I still remember the enjoyment of shooting mobsters in slo-mo with two guns blazing in original Max Payne game on my Xbox. The Max Payne 3: The Complete Series collects 3 stories – After the Fall, Hoboken Blues and Fight & Flight and ties everything together and is prequel to Max Payne 3 video game which was released last year on Xbox 360/PS3 and PC.
The first chapter “After the Fall” dives into Max Payne’s broken childhood with his parents and grandfather. The second chapter “Hoboken Blues” goes into how he met his wife Michelle and best friend Alex Balder. The third chapter “Fight & Flight”, Max meets a past Police Academy cadet Raul Passos that leads him to São Paulo, Brazil and the start of Max Payne 3.
