Finally got around to finishing Max Payne 3 tonight. The game is really fantastic and I’d highly recommend playing it (especially on PC for the improved graphics). If I had played it last summer when it came out it would easily have been one of my GotY choices. One thing that stood out to me while playing the game was the score by HEALTH. The music really really helped to set the mood for so many parts of the game and in certain places even impacts the style of the gameplay.
The video above is a cool feature that talks to the band and the audio folks at Rockstar to discuss how they incorporated the music into the game. There is a small spoiler near the end of the video so be careful for that if you haven’t had a chance to play it yet (the music is an important part of this scene they are talking about). I’ve also included a few of my favorite songs from the soundtrack below the video. The game is definitely worth checking out, especially if you’re a fan of other Rockstar games.
