Junkies usually get a lot skinnier over time - Max should have completely dissolved by this point. The game could be awesome, sounds like the Denzel movie 'Man On Fire'
Couldn't they at least make Max Payne look like remotely like he did from MP2? This just looks like they picked someone off the streets and called him Max instead.
I think the reason y people r not takin 2 kindly 2 the new Max Payne look is coz all the screen-shots released hav been in the day-time where as the older games where pretty much always in the dark Wait until u c sum screens/footage of the "new" Max Payne divin through the air with a couple of Uzis in his hands then u may start 2 warm 2 the game Im all 4 it
My main issue so far has been the heavy focus on dual wielding. In all but one screenshot in the Game Informer article he's dual wielding either two pistols or a pistol and a shotgun, and in that one screenshot he holsters his pistol to use the shotgun one-handed. It seems their gimmick will be to mix up your gameplay by dual wielding weapons of various types without any weapon carrying otherwise. I worry about when they create gimmicks like this in these type of games.
I am really intrigued about this Max Payne is that he is so much more rugged than before. Rockstar really is taking a chance without reinventing the series like this, but that's what I love about them they aren't afraid to push the limits and to take a character out of his element and in Sal Paulo is much different then than the dark streets of NY, I like this new direction personally.
I think this is a terrible idea. A great deal of the game's charm came from it's film-noir stylings and dark setting. Now, it's all bright colours and palm trees, and Max has gone from a believable looking cop to a muscle-bound ex-green-beret commando type. This isn't Max Payne. This used to be a fairly original IP, now it's become just another generic duck 'n cover third person shooter set in a tropical setting. Just utterly... generic. I doubt any real Max fans want this.
I'm a huge fan of Max Payne and this isn't a Max Payne game. This looks like a cross between Uncharted and Splinter Cell. The backdrop of New York at night was what really pushed the feel of the game and yet he's in some [email protected] hole of a place in daytime instead. I'm pretty disappointed. I want my Max Payne back.
I agree. Specially about the transformation "believable looking cop to a muscle-bound ex-green-beret commando type" sure 12 years have past but from the fact sheet he still has those omens and that kind of a man would have a hard time becoming a body builder.
you ever wonder how the next gen max payne looks like ? well BAM!! there it is.
Although I don't think they could make a game even half as good as that film.
Original or Denzel remake? I actually enjoyed both.
Would add LOADS to the atmosphere....n btw if you guys wanna get an idea of the vibe this game is gonna have, watch -> "Cidade de Deus" "Esquadra de Elite" These two films probably served as a major inspiration to the game...if not, then rockstar missed out on two of Brazil's best depictions of life in the favelas.
City of God is one of my favourite films alright.
I hope they do speak Portuguese, but I am sure most part of the game they will be speaking english! I grew up in Brazil (moved to USA at 21) and you dont want to mess around in favelas, I would only go there if I knew people that lived there, and I would make sure i didnt have anything expensive on me, like watches or a lot of cash!!! And looks like the dev want to explore favelas more, even COD MW2 have favela form Rio de Janeiro!!!
sounds really good. loved the first 2 games ( the first more though ) using R* engine should be wicked !! I hope its really good. its a bit odd that its been kept under the radar for so long. I mean this should be getting the hype on GTA sort of level, well close to that anyway. it could be a good thing, it could be a bad thing. I hope they make a lot of noise about it once its getting close to release. there are so many great games coming out i think they will need to in order to get it noticed.
