honestly this game sucked compared to the others in my opinion
Eldyraen  +   503d ago
It was a great game but barely felt like Max Payne imo. Bullet time and character name
/backstory were almost only parallels as the story itself didn't have the same vibe.

I enjoyed it though and on PC it was gorgeous for its time.
Master-H  +   503d ago
Agreed, the setting is what sucked the most in my opinion, Brazil is boring, that flash back usa mission was probably the best. Also the removal of the ridiculous big gun collection he used to carry on him in the previous titles.

You sleep.

It was a half decent story. Not a story I would play again. The multiplayer wasn't anything ground breaking. Waste of development money. Focusing on Max Payne 4.
RedDeadLB  +   503d ago
There will be no Max Payne 4 in my opinion. There's absolutely nothing left for Max, his former colleagues, his job, his love, his femme fatale and even his shitty apartment(s) are all gone. Nothing to come back to except his body in a bag after the stupid decisions he made in MP3.

Actually, when I think about it. He could go in guns blazing cleaning New Jersey of the ones after him. All for the sake of greater good since there's nothing else to do. And Rockstar could write in that easter egg from Alan Wake regarding Max. It would be a nice way to end the series and it would be in the tone of the previous games.

The game was a mess and it's mediocre sells proves it. If all your game is is a pile of slo motion shoot outs , at least have decent controls and a story that makes sense. The game was just too sloppy.

Finally an good port
98xpresent  +   503d ago
Nobody was asking for this game .that would be really unnecessary
StrawberryDiesel420  +   503d ago
I was, along with Gears of War and Dead Space, the originals that is.
Randostar  +   503d ago
While i did enjoy Max Payne 3, a lot. I have to agree, i dont know a single person who has said "Damn, i wish they would remaster Max Payne 3 on the new consoles."
XiSasukeUchiha  +   503d ago
Not a bad game to port!

I'm surprised they're porting a game that's that old.
Neonridr  +   503d ago
Next Gen, where HD remakes seem to happen.

Come on, give us Max Payne 4 instead.
Eldyraen  +   503d ago
I'm assuming 4 is in the works after hearing about this. It may be like Tomb Raider where the game didn't perform as well as they wanted so sort of cashing in on remaster bandwagon before announcing a new game.

At least I hope so as remakes are cool but there are a ton I would prefer over this no matter how great the game was.
Neonridr  +   503d ago
fair enough. I mean I purchased the "Definitive Edition" of Tomb Raider on PS4. I don't mind it when they do these things once and a while. I just hope this isn't Sony's way of addressing a sparse calendar. We'll just fill up the extra spaces with games you just played last year but this time in HD.
Volkama  +   503d ago
Can't really put any blame on Sony if Take 2 decide to publish yet another remake.

If even half these remake rumours turn out to be true then it has to be considered a big trend in the industry. You can understand it, the development costs are low so it's a relatively safe investment in a high risk industry.

I think some of these remakes will serve to highlight just how unimpressive these consoles are in terms of hardware though, because in most cases they will fall short of the PC version that launched several years ago...

Why the hell would they bring this instead of Red Dead Redemption?
WeAreLegion  +   503d ago
I think a lot of that has to do with how messy the code for Red Dead is. They said that was a major factor in not releasing it on PC. I don't know the actual reasons, but that information might help.
WeAreLegion  +   503d ago
Just confirm that this team is working on Bully 2 already and stop worrying me!
xDHAV0K24x  +   503d ago
as long as its priced right
elda  +   503d ago
This is getting really ridiculous now basically this hd remaster trend is becoming a cash cow now,I think we would like MP-4 or a new Ip,anyone that played MP-3 has already played it in hd.
VileAndVicious  +   503d ago
Lol I mentioned the same thing in the DmC thread. Im afraid we are going to be repeating last generation for a while...

But we'll see soon enough.

I ask why? Max Payne 3 looks great on the PC, so why would they re-release this version?
GusBricker  +   503d ago
No. Red Dead Redemption 2, please.
Dlacy13g  +   503d ago
ENOUGH already with all the HD remasters! Unless you are doing collections of games aka Master Chief collection where its 3 or 4 games all re-done and an actual value beyond the orignial game and dlc please just stop. This is why we got no backwards compatibility... so these companies could resell us the same games from a year or two ago and make it sound like they are doing us a service. Its far cheaper to them to remaster vs make a new IP.

This generation is turning into a steaming pile because of this. Why make new games or give backwards compatibility whew we have millions of idiots who will buy the same game again a year or two later because its "HD remastered".

You make it sound like HD remasters are the only games that are coming out for next gen.
elda  +   503d ago
@Dlacy13g..Totally agree,it seems though we are buying these systems just to get rehashed hd ports,though this may be good for people who never had a PS3 & now own a PS4,but it's unnecessary to make old multi-plat games to hd ports for this gen knowing they were hd to begin with.

How come you never complained about GOTY editions?
Dlacy13g  +   503d ago
GOTY editions are just as bad imo especially when they get re-released at full boat price just because they include all the dlc. They are another fine example of easy cash grabs.
KNWS  +   503d ago
I don't mind remasters i can see why they would do it for Gears, uncharted, last of US and halo, but games like this don't need remastering.

Day 1 for any and all games you listed ;) there are a few others I would probably buy but those are ones I think warrant it most. Basically games that really helped define the generation for their respective platform (so mostly exclusives).

A few third party wouldn't hurt but I would probably prefer a single new game over remastered collection for most. Borderlands for example I could see get a "complete edition" at some point including pre-sequel but in truth I would prefer a new Borderlands on new consoles from the ground up.
Master-H  +   503d ago
Eh who asked for this ? it's available for ps3 xbox and PC, anybody interested in it probably already played it.

Plus the multiplayer isn't good, the story is linear and can be completed in 10 hours.

I'd much rather have a Max Payne 1/2 remake, or a new sequel NOT done by Rockstar.
IHassounah  +   503d ago
well the problem is , the only studio that can actually perform a true sequel to Max Payne is Remedy Entertainment , but the real problem right now , that company is actually preferring the Xbox , so I don't think it's possible to announced a sequel developed by other companies than R*
StrawberryDiesel420  +   503d ago
God let this be true, this along with Dead Space should be remastered for next gen!
ginsunuva  +   503d ago
Up next:
Final Fantasy XIII: Definitive Edition
Super Mega Turbo Street Fighter IV Extreme Next-Gen Remaster Plus
SaveFerris  +   503d ago
How about Ride to Hell: Retribution HD definitive edition?
SilentNegotiator  +   503d ago
Last of Us, Halo, and Wind Waker, I understand. But Max Payne 3?
GusBricker  +   503d ago
I don't get Last of Us, especially with PS NOW, they should be pushing that with the Last of US.
Mr Marvel  +   503d ago
Why would they bother remastering this pile of crap?
m0lt0n  +   503d ago
Because it's not a pile of crap...?

Your opinion is valid, but only to you. Pretty much everyone I know that ACTUALLY played the game really enjoyed it.
UnHoly_One  +   503d ago
Enough of these ports already.

Seriously, how about some new games instead?
ginsunuva  +   503d ago
New games?

You must be from the previous generations of gaming.
m0lt0n  +   503d ago
I'm ok with this, as it was one of my surprise "hits" of last gen (just my opinions). Really enjoyed it, and will probably pick it up on X1 or PS4, if the price is right.

Not sure why people get so worked up over ports like this. If you dont want it, then don't buy it. It's not like its draining an entire studios resources to put these out. They can easily work on ports and new games at the same time. This isnt re-inventing the wheel, it's porting a game with enhanced visuals.
stefan771  +   502d ago
Best TPS I have ever played
RedDeadLB  +   501d ago
I'd rather they port Red Dead Redemption and throw in a PC version as well.
