It's a decade since the last Payne game, and GTA-maker Rockstar has toned down Max's film noir leanings but ramped up the slow-motion-shooting-bad-guys-in-the-face fun, with a soundtrack from LA noise-pop band HEALTH and a gritty cinematic feel reminiscent of one of David Fincher's bleaker films (albeit with a hefty injection of John Woo's balletic carnage). If anyone tries to tell you there's nothing cool about leaping through a window, guns blazing, to a throbbing electro soundtrack, they're not worth wasting bullets on.
