The controls are somewhat awkward (Xbox 360), but it's playable; I might have to turn up sensitivity. The general gameplay is pretty much what you expect from Max Payne, but the problem with this installment (and indeed a problem with many games today) is that it's really more of a movie than a game. I will say that the transition between cutscenes and gameplay is pretty seamless which helps, but it's hard to get into the game when you've got 4 or 5 minutes of cutscenes for every 2 or 3 minutes of action; more than once I've yelled at my TV to "COME ON"; especially when the majority of the cutscenes have these ridiculous stylish affects applied to them that makes it a pain to watch.
