I have no clue why everybody hates this game so much, criticizing factors such as slowness, Meta Knight, Pit or the Interent mode. The game runs perfectly fine and I wouldn't all it slow, despite how it runs compared to Melee. I don't get the hate for Pit here, it's just his Side Special (aka AIYAYAYAAAAAAA) that makes him "the worst character", I think he's well balanced, and I haven't seen why Meta Knight's Neutral Special is so "powerful" up to this day. Years back, I had no lag in my online matches. I simply don't get why they hate it.
I think it's one of the best games I've ever played, even to this date. The Adventure Mode is the best in the series and it even includes a neat Boss Battle Mode. Some characters are really easy to unlock (i.e. complete 5 VS. battles to unlock Ness or play 15 VS. battles in Shadow Moses Island to unlock Snake), but I don't care. The only thing that I hate is the Target Test mode. It's divided by 5 difficulties and every character shares the same stages. What a joke.
Everyone says that this game is the bottom of the barrel, but I can see why. It didn't have partners and introduced a mechanic that nobody really liked, and it's shorter than most of the Paper Mario Games. I enjoyed it however. The soundtrack is very underrated, and has some really great songs. I didn't feel like the mechanic of the stickers with combat was garbage, as the game provides you with a multitude of stickers and gives you some when you are running low. The writing/dialog wasn't the best and the story felt disjointed with every world you go to. The only area with real story was the Jungle world with helping wiggler get all the parts of his body back. Is it the best? No, Far from it actually, but if you find it at a cheap price, it's worth it if you want some hours to kill.

Imo, this game is an underrated gem when it released in 2003. I was never a comic book fan, but the art style absolutely nailed the comic book feel, the mechanics were also very unique for a time where fps like CoD and Halo were cementing themselves as an industry norm. NPCs walking down hallways you couldn't see had a visual "Tap, Tap, Tap" on screen to signify where they were walking to, certain events or kills even popped up boxes to signify a different pov or animation in a typical comic book layout. Another thing worth mentioning, in a time where animations were mostly janky and still being fleshed out to be as realistic as possible, this game has some unusually smooth and fluid animations, even for a game developed on the Unreal Engine 2. The story is mostly straightforward, you play as a character that suffers from amnesia and tries to find out why government agents and private armies are out to kill you, while trying to unravel a conspiracy to overthrow the US government.
Also I just noticed the damn near two year difference in between some posts above, I knew the forums were dying but jfc that's a BIG difference.
People don't like Max Payne 3 much because it doesn't have many of the film noir elements of the first two, along with the frequent cutscenes and really just because it isn't a carbon copy of the first two. People are also idiots. I very much enjoyed Max Payne 3. And you should too! Unless, of course, you don't. Which is fine. Go ahead. I'll disagree, but go right on ahead. Okay, cool.
