See Max Payne on the high resolution scans from the latest Game Informer!
The look of Max is somewhat strange, but iam sure it fits to his story. The Pictures looks great. Looks like Improved Resident Evil Graphics:) Cant wait for this Game!
i love max payne and cant wait for this game. I keep reading people complain about the way it looks. not sure why the game looks like it will be great.
its funny you say that i did that on another forum.
the likeness is uncanny, as soon as i saw the screen it is what i thought of
You've read my mind LOL
is this a ps3 exclusive?
PS3 - 360 - PC
oh ok. never mind i'll pass it's gonna suck then. just kidding. i just felt like being an ass for a second.
hehe.. good job man ... it actually worked there for a second
Looks solid. I wonder how they'll work in the bullet time stuff during multiplayer matches. Maybe they'll use it as a special power up or something.
It looks stunning, and the gameplay additions sound fantastic. I'm just not convinced in the slightest that this will feel like a Max Payne game. I'll have to wait and see. I just wish Remedy had waited until after the release of Alan Wake and done Max Payne 3 themselves.
What is Grigori Rasputin doing in a Max Payne game? I'm usually mad about bald characters (excepted 47 and Kratos) because they often lack of charisma but this time Max Payne looks quite good, even if i miss the good old Max Payne with his "I'm angrily smiling" static face. Can't way anyway :D
Whatever the frak that is, it is NOT Max Payne. All my worst fears are coming true...
Yeah.I don't like the direction they took Max at all.He Looks like an old pedophile with grease stains on his Wife-beater.
Hes Hardcore now. In a nasty wrong way.
Now i know i speak fo everybody here who are fans of the game and so am i, but all i wanna know is that in what in the hell are they doing with Max Payne!? I know we dont live in 2001-2004 anymore and the gameplay might as well change along with the time but...is it really gong to be for the best?
Max Payne 3 will turn out great...hes stressed out and over the hill like should after everything lost....
I have the GI book in front of me... while it does resemble Uncharted, Uncharted 2 blows this away. However, I would assume more polish needs to be applied before I can solidify or dismiss that remark.
Looks like Max Payne is doing a Bruce Willis Die Hard 4 style...
lmao I wanted to say that you bastard ;)
Yeah it does looks like they went the willis/bridges way . But why does it also looks like , as well as story driven , this drastic change also seems like a way to distance themselves from the awful movie ? PS : The game looks awesome btw , can't wait
Looks good but what's with the El Matador style setting? I wish they would've stuck with gritty urban levels like the first two and just moved it across the coast to L.A., Vegas or somewhere similar. That said the graphics and guns look much better than expected; I just hope the dev team responsible for Bully can handle making a legit action game.
But what would have been the point ? the noir/gritty genre was played to it's best by the first two games . There is only so much noir hommage you could do with it . it would have just been more of the same next gen . It was time to shake up things , and it's a chance for a new gameplay as well . Besides it's still quite urban enough , while i expect some walks in coca fields , i doubt it will suddenly becomes uncharted and leaves you for long in jungles . Now think Man on Fire with a tired Willis/Bridges clone instead of Denzel Washington . Or maybe something akin to brazilian movies such as "City of God" , with the favelas and urban crime
In fairness to Rockstar, I can understand the drastic change of appearance and the change of location as well. I mean, Max's life has been pretty buggered up? With 12 years gone by and an addiction to painkillers, his new appearance is completely understandable. For me, the change in location is even more logical. As I mentioned before, Max had a pretty crappy time in New York. Wouldn't you want to move and get away from all of that? Leave you troubles behind, so to speak? I think the whole thing makes perfect sense. Max is probably trying to start fresh, start a new life. But, in true Max Payne style, he'll get put in some serious shizz and will undoubtedly end up facing that classic lesson: the past always catched you up, no matter how hard you try to get away from it. I know that 'Noir York' was like a second character in the first two Max Payne games, but the series has to move on. I'll take this particular comment back completely if the game doesn't feel anything like a Max Payne game once we get the chance to play it, but for now I think we should just wait and see. This has potential; not just as an amazing game, but as an amazing MAX PAYNE game. I'm willing to give Rockstar the benefit of the doubt, for now.
Condemned 2 Splinter Cell: Conviction Max Payne 3 I guess it's a natural progression? I just hope this game is good. Condemned 2's story was crap; Splinter Cell: Conviction, based upon the gameplay trailer, looks way too easy with snap-to aiming and obvious kill points; Let's hope Rockstar does this one right! BTW, I *am* still holding out on Conviction to see if it fares good in reviews. It's still early in the game cycle, after all. I'm just not liking what I am seeing based on the direction they are taking the game.
Oh man, Max payne = Elvis Presley, i knew it. He already had that king of rock and roll hair cut. Elvis Presley must have been a detective in his free time, but when he got fat and bald because of his pill addiction, he moved to Sao Paolo and faked his death. The king lives!!
its too different from the first games imo... "the team decided against using voice actor James McCaffrey again. Instead, they plan on casting a new voice actor who can better express the toll that the years have taken on the protagonist" NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
I don't like this new Max. Max is supposed to be a bad ass NYPD detective. Not some meth addict guerrilla dude. The graphics look good but its not uncharted 2 like they said it was.
I really hate it when they change voice actors to fit the story, I can only hope this guy's voice for Payne is at least close to James McCaffrey. Seriously, I hope they don't pull this crap on us like what Blizzard did with Raynor. I mean really, why did they change someone who sounded like a leader with bad a$$ attitude with someone who just sounds like a hillbilly jerk-off. I don't care if it's suppose to fit the story in Starcraft, I will forever be pissed that they changed Raynor's voice. Maybe I'll grow into it, but this hillbilly Raynor isn't the same Raynor I used to know.
He looks freaking horrible.
If this game drops with the protagonist pictured I will not be getting this game, hands down.
And that's why your opinion on gaming is ranked high above others. /s
if he is oldish, addicted to drugs.... and bald.... maybe he has cancer ps im not messing around it just seems like it
In don't remember the main character looking like that...huh?
its the best thing i have seen so far !
he looks like one bad ass dude
whats the deal with aging i know ur average gamer is around 30 and full of cash but still. Snake.. sam... now max .. pfff that thing is getting old :P whats next . Luigi's retirement mansion?
Snake had excellerating aging because of Foxdie, Sam Fisher always had grey hair, and Max Payne is still up in the air. Do you expect him to look the same after 10 years. Even LINK from Zelda grew up. Look at Chris Redfield from Resident Evil. Everyone has to go through change. Stop thinking inside the box and grow up
Mario never aged :s and still sells a lot. Tell the developpers to think outside the box. Its ok for mgs4 because it started it (from a blockbuster point of view). but Dvpers have a tendency to do the same thing at the same time. Greyish look, aging of main characters, abusing the bump mapping, cover system etc..
EEEEKS!!!....that is Max Payne? Fat, dirty and looks like a total muscle-head....that might not be too bad considering we're gonna have to stomach a hobo Sam Fisher...
im not liking these games that carry on with the series but they are old men jumping from building it doesnt seem right can you picture a 50 year old man jumping roof top to roof top its not right the game might look amazing but wont seem right
I can't really see any similarities. Maybe they should have just gone with a different name and let Remedy deal with Max Payne after they are done with AW. Just let the name go and invent a new character. They could still use the bullet time and all. Well maybe it sells better with Max Payne name on the box. Great graphics though.
