Max Payne 3: Divine Terror & Social Responsibilty

Featured on Critical Distance.


One bizarre moment in Max Payne (2002) has the titular protagonist discovering that the Inner Circle, an X-Filesesque conspiracy of shadow men who offer him help, has hands in every major political event of the American century. With voice actor James McCaffery sounding unimpressed, Max rattles off vague lists of their deeds before moving on to his revenge. A narrative shrug, some might call it, but it’s the first hints of what the Max Payne trilogy is now about.
