I gave up on the reticule turning white in Max Payne 3(PC) I thought it was glitched. Like I said earlier I would aim about the head, mostly in bullet time, for the red mist/cloud to appear. 2/3D's of the time they were done..not always, but mostly. I liked the game but it was brutal. I liked or accepted most of what Rockstar did, but I am leery of their predilection for working the graphic violence line. Becomes a thing in itself with them.
