Never played any of the max paynes before but was thinking about getting this but I was just wondering if it's a new story or do I need to have played 1 and 2 to understand what's going on?

Playing 1 and 2 will give you a better feel of the character, history and everything that happens in the story has much more impact and meaning. However, with that said even without playing those two thanks to the presentation and some story, you can understand what happened but without deep details. Also, there are clues too that makes Max talk about a past event but, clues are meant for collectibles and not part of the story.

Bottom line, you can play without playing the previous games, but everything will be better if you did or atleast watch the cutscenes of the whole games (MP 1 and 2)
