Max Payne 3 Mac does bullet time, as well as effects like Shootdodge and Final Kill-cam. To enjoy all of that “violence as art” fun you will need a fairly beefy Mac with an equally beefy (512MB) stand-alone GPU.

Rockstar Games has announced Max Payne 3 ($39.99) is now available on the Mac App Store. This ain’t your daddy’s first person shooter and, tipping the scales at a portly 32.51GB, it has the system requirements to prove it:

— OS X 10.7.5 and up
— Intel Core i Series 2.4GHZ or greater, Dual Core Xeon or greater
— 4GB RAM
— 40GB free disk space
— nVidia 8800GT or AMD Radeon HD 4870 w/ 512 MB

While a 2.4GHz i3 or better isn’t too harsh, the GPU requirement excludes all Mac minis, MacBook Airs and most MacBook Pros. That said, most 2009 and newer iMacs are compatible as are Mac Pro models — use GameAgent’s Mac Match service to see if you Mac meets the specs.

Nevertheless, if your Mac has the stones to play Max Payne 3 Mac, you can live in Bullet Time and that’s pretty darned cool…

What’s your take?
