It's not the best looking, but it's still no slouch, and runs well with all the DX11 options enabled.

:: For some reason my games aren't saving properly. I unlocked a ton of golden guns and it didn't save. I'm guessing it's a social club upload error. However unlike Steam and Origin, it doesn't have conflict management.

I know cutscenes are a big part of this game but there should have been an option to skip them or at least being able to skip them after the first play through. Playing the game once was ok with all the lengthy cutscenes (barely) but when replaying the game those same cutscenes get old real quick. I guess Rockstar figured everyone was only going to play this game once.

The cut scenes are skippable, where they are not it's because the game is loading. This game has LONG load times. Even on PC.

depends on your HD's I'd guess, I'm using raid 0 (Sammy F3s) and the load times are fairly short for me. I'd assume with an SSD its fast.

Yeah, I can skip most cut scenes after a few moments (SSD RAID 0), there are a few in game ones that I can't skip the first time round, but after a checkpoint load they are skippable (it's already in RAM I guess).

Just completed the campaign, took my time with this one. A rather underwhelming game I must say. The story is most disappointing. That little twist towards the end wasnt all that shocking of a revelation to me for some reason. Overall still a pretty good game, just not up to my expectations.

finished the game, ordinary story would be an understatement. there was absolutely no buildup to the ending, no huge boss fights, no memorable setpieces. the last chapter just came and went. No real plot twists, and the one twist anyone with a little sense could have seen coming from a mile away.

I replayed Max Payne 2 a few days ago, that game is amazing and many times better than the third game imo

I'm not as surprised as I was the first time I experienced something. That's all your fault game developer.
