I had the pleasure of seeing Max Payne 3 at the NY Comic Con a few weeks back and it was very impressive. Rockstar applied a very well made story to a solid franchise. They also made sure to make substantial gameplay improvements while still keeping the elements fans enjoyed. Here are some screenshots showing the amount of work being put into making Max Payne 3 a must own in 2012.
Just in case you forgot what you were getting into with Max Payne 3 here is the trailer.
