Rockstar Games’ latest installment in the groundbreaking Max Payne series has arrived on the Mac, bringing with it a hail of bullets and all the slow-mo jumps an action fan could ask for. The game is available on the Mac App Store for $39.99. (Get more details here.)

Max Payne 3 features the titular (anti-)hero washed up and still reeling from past tragedies that took his loved ones away from him. Max has moved to Brazil where he takes on the role of bodyguard for the family of a wealthy real estate mogul. Of course, things go awry, stuff blows up, and Max has to jump through the air and shoot lots of bullets to save the family he’s supposed to protect as well as himself.

The game has earned high marks on the PC from a wide variety of review outlets, averaging an 87 on Metacritic, and so is a welcome to addition to the Mac. That said, it also features pretty high system requirements which might preclude some Mac gamers from even getting to the title screen.
