Should There Be A Max Payne 4?

Max Payne 3 has been out on consoles for a few weeks now, and will see its release on PC by the end of this week. The game's received somewhat of a mixed, but positive, reception. Praise is mostly structured on the game's style and narrative, with what complaints there are being centered around, again, the game's style and narrative. Differing, but mostly positive, opinions. But the question remains: Regardless of whether you just kind of liked Max Payne 3, or loved it, do you want to see a Max Payne 4? (Max Payne 3 , PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I wouldn't buy another Max Payne title unless it was developed by Remedy

I would buy another from Rockstar. Remendy from what I saw in Alan Wake aren't what they used to be.

Oh yes, he doesn't like what you like....CLEARLY theres something wrong with him /s

yes because max payne 3 is a very good game, i am sorry if you feel RS didn't do as good of a job but sales say otherwise. I think RS should wait for next gen consoles before doing MP4.

and this time how about not caring as much for MP and giving us a story which is 15-20hrs long.

@ DJLB2115 (sorry showtime, meant to reply beneath him)

So sales equal quality? Really? Operation Racoon city had great sales. Next you will throw out the scores it received. Scores from sites with no set standards of review and no editorial policy to govern reviews.

Do you even know what reviews are these days? They are opinions, that is it. They are what some kid like or didn't like. Zero objectivity.

Reading the reviews it is clear some people (I can't bring myself to call them writers) were more enamored with Rockstar than the game itself. A game which had several boils and pustules but these were overlooked when the same sites marked down the scores of other titles for the same reason.

You may want to buy into these reviews whereas I prefer not to be the pawn of these reviewers. Max Payne was good but it wasn't game of the year material. Yet it received 9s, 9.5s, and even 10s from sites who said it deserved a 10. Not because it was perfect, but it deserved it. I'm sorry, WTH is a 10 for? What's perfect? A 12? A 15?

You have the attitude of these reviewers. People that are incapable of divesting themselves from their own preferences to look at a game with a modicum of objectivity.

You said that and got 17 disagrees, but I dare any of those that disagree to tell me that MP3 is better than MP1 or MP2.

Probably the same people that think GTA4 is anywhere near as good as GTA3, VC, or SA...

Completely agree, Rockstar is great but need to focus on their own franchises first. GTA V loading....................... ............................... ............. but seriously return to the classic gameplay rather than the tone of IV

In my honest opinion Grand Theft Auto IV is easily the best Grand Theft Auto game out there.

Ive bought every GTA on release since the third. I still own them all and ive even downloaded gta San andreas onto My 360.

I also own all 3 Max Paynes, I own the collectors editions and in my opinion Max Payne 3 is the best of the 3.

Maybe not for story. But even Max Payne 2 didnt have as good of a story as the 1st.
ThichQuangDuck  +   1030d ago

Grand Theft Auto San Andreas was personally my favorite because it was a interesting relatable story which had diverse missions and characters you actually cared about rather than being forced to go bowling with. L.A. noire had good facial animation was even with clue finding and talking a less interesting narrative because it was a open world with nothing to do but the story. Max Payne 3 was very impressive seeing the euphoria engine in bullet time and jumping but the gameplay towards the end of the story gets weak and the multiplayer will not last very long due to the way that unlocks are done. This is just how I see it and hope they learn from mistakes of this generation, red dead redemption being their best showing this gen in my opinion. You can't say that Remedy should not get another chance to continue their series just because everyone loves Rockstar.

I wouldn't buy another Max Payne title unless it was written by Sam Lake !
omi25p  +   1032d ago
Well you have missed out on possibly one of my top 5 favorite games of all time.

Loved Max Payne 3, but I wouldn't buy another one. I'm happy with the way it ended the franchise.
jc48573  +   1032d ago
huh? did it just end like that?
D3mons0ul  +   1032d ago
The end pretty much implied that this was the last game. Unless it takes place in the future and Max conceives a son with a Hooker on a fluke, total illegitimate kid who eventually gets involved in some bad shit where he has to fight his way out just like dear old dad lol

Something tells me Max doesn't give a shit anymore, will screw hookers and eventually just drift around until he dies or commits suicide.

I'l like more Max Payne style games from Rockstar but leave Max in retirement.
JellyJelly  +   1032d ago
My thoughts too. I'd love another 3rd person shooter but it could be about someone else in other settings.

I'd love an open world knight game by Rockstar. Could be epic.
Adexus  +   1032d ago
I'd love to see another but I would really like to see Max fully pushed to the edge in the next one.
jc48573  +   1032d ago
Just wait till Payne sees another asshole. I really don't see why Payne would stop trying.
supraking951  +   1032d ago
sure a new Max Payne would be nice, but after GTA5 and all the dlc, a new Red Dead and a new IP from Rockstar. After all that which should be in 5-6 years, but thats just pushing it
NnT3291  +   1032d ago
I only know Stranglehold and Vanquish, which have similar style. This gerne is unique, keep it coming
M1chl  +   1032d ago
I just want more Max like he was in earlier chapters. In later chapters game become just another cover-based shooter, although this time with "virgin tight controls" (stolen from neogaf), which I really don't like. And even story kind gets thinnier as the game progress. I loved first few chapters and I like the rest. Guess that means I want another one : )

Anyone heard of Sons of Gestapo? It would be cool if they made this group the villain of Max Payne 4, that would tie it with real life events..remembering the train they crashed and all that?
FarCryLover182  +   1032d ago
There probably will be a Max Payne 4. But it will be released in 5 years or so minimum. 4-5 year wait for GTA 5, 6 years in between Red Dead Revolver and Red Dead Redemption, many years wait between Bully 1 and the likely Bully 2 (which the music composer said he was working on the soundtrack in 2009). MP4 will probably continue this trend.

Rockstar have done a fantastic job with Max Payne 3, the gameplay, writing, voice-acting and, well, the entire package is superb. As long as a continuation is plausible to the story then I'd be more than happy to have a sequel, but let's it get ahead of ourselves, we have a collection of Multiplayer maps and Co-Op missions on the way...
AgreeFairy  +   1032d ago
Only if Rockstar DOESN'T make it. Give it back to Remedy and just call it "Max Payne: D3bris" or something and then the next one after that can be called Max Payne 4.
DJLB2115  +   1032d ago
to whoever said something along the lines of "dont be fooled by the reviews," i feel u on that. I own a collectors copy of max payne 3 so i didnt read any reviews or anything i just preordered the game and when i got it, i played it until i cleared it. reviews can hinder you. i was gonna buy mass effect 3 till i heard about the ending fiasco. now i dont even want the game lol i wait till its discounted.... by alot lol.

MAke another id buy it in a heart beat, MP3 is the best one so why not?
nik666uk  +   1032d ago
MP3 is a good game but not a classic, I knew who the villain was right at the beginning of the game though, it was so obvious! I hated the jerky blurred effect though, it did my eyes in at 1st, it felt a bit like being drunk in GTA4

No. Max Payne 3 had the perfect ending. I'd leave it alone from now on.

Rockstar took something Remedy did well and created something spectacular! I hope Max Payne 4 comes...
