Finishing the Hardcore mode of Max Payne 3 in 1.3 hours is no joke

Max Payne 3 isn’t the most difficult game out there by any means. But that doesn’t mean Rockstar makes it a piece of cake to complete the mode. Before players can even think about attempting the Hardcore mode, they have to finish the game in the game Hard mode. Doing that will unlock the Hardcore Mode. Players will have a much, much tougher finishing the story this time around. The game tries its best to restrict access to resources. And that, in itself, is a huge part of the challenge.

Summit1g’s recent accomplishment has earned him the top spot on the “Any % Glitchless + Cutscene Skip” category. And he even made a tweet about it.

 

Even though he currently holds the record for Hardcore mode speedrun, he still isn’t entirely sure his new-set record will remain undefeated for long.

Max Payne 3’s legacy

The game came out in 2012, and though the graphics might not be much compared to today’s games, it still isn’t horrifying. The story is engaging and ticks all the right boxes. Max Payne has left New Jersey in pursuit of a new life. He finds work as a bodyguard. And then everything falls apart and Max finds himself in the midst of chaos once again. Engaging and impactful, the game also features Max’s deadpan dry humor that has become a staple of the franchise.

Even though the multiplayer lobbies might not be always filled, the campaign is still as good as it always has been. And gamers are welcome to give it a go.
