Max Payne 1 and Max Payne 2 started an era of third person shooter games with brilliance. Be it the player movements like run and shoot or the game depth. Rockstar Games now have something huge to offer and yes it’s the third installment ‘Max Payne 3’ where we get to see Payne back in extreme action. Additional in game features are present like “Last Man Standing” mechanism which brings a small halt in the death of Max for a while if he’s got a painkiller on him, also Max can shoot and dodge the bullets all around and after a dive he gets to stay on ground so that he can have a 360 degree shot at enemies around him. This game has cinematic action sequences and cut scenes, with additional physics and animations so that everything around Max seems more realistic than any other games. Additional slo-mo (slow motion) sequences increases the intense gameplay with Max throwing it all up in order to hurt his enemies in all possible ways.

2) Tomb Raider: A Survivor is Born
‘She set to find some adventure but instead adventure found her’. The game begins with Lara lost on an island after her ship wreck without any equipment or food supplies which she has to search over in order to survive. The gameplay is made such that few sections on the island will be restricted to her until she enhances her skills and upgrades her physical abilities to search on for equipment’s in order to proceed. Coming to combat the makers had a rethought on the lock on aiming system and made the game with a manual free aim mechanism. Many additional features like survival instincts have been added which helps Lara to solve out puzzles while she’s standing still. Free aim mechanism can be explained as if Lara jumps on to an area she wouldn’t be attracted towards the nearest ledge instead here the player can change the directions in midair which makes the puzzles more difficult. Keeping low indications expect for fire and few harmful things the help in game given to the player would be minimal.
