Rockstar are aware that the shooter envelope needs pushing, so bank on a sophisticated cover system and environs that pack in a level of destructibility unseen since the last Red Faction, for starters.
Can't believe that are dropping the whole comic book noire style in favour of... this.
agreed, they ruined max payne´s feeling and atmosphere
"Can Rockstar Deliver without Remedy?" I don't know, but that screen-shot looks amazing.
yes they ruined a game that you've never played play it first, instead of judging it before anyone has really even seen it and who says they are dropping the comic book style? we have literally seen next to nothing of this game
rental first, then we'll see
I think they can. Even if it's different from the original I really like the new art direction.
Rockstar Games are the best developer eve... Ummmm, Actually no, I think Naughty Dog is. But Rockstar Games come at a very very close second.
Valve is the best developer... everybody knows that.
CAPCOM used to be the best dev in my eyes, but now it's Valve and R*
Valve? I-O are the best just for creatin the Himan series, R* create more appealin games then what Valve do
I think Rockstar is better they really havent messed up in there games, while Valve, even though they are brilliant, did fuck up the L4D franchise with the two games spilting the community and it's true L4D is dead.....they said they would come through for it and they didn't
I don't think L4D is dead... I think many people play it daily. But L4D2 is just awesome. 15000 people play it right now, and every week there is a new mutation and a poll vote. There have already been like 2 free DLC already. The Sacrifice and The Passing. And we got No Mercy also, so we can play as L4D1 survivors in L4D2. I also like to download some community made maps, like the Helm's Deep map, it's awesome.
Rockstar messed up with GTA4's nagging friends..perhaps. Though it seems R* actually put a lot of work in their games. You can simply do nothing but drive/walk around and explore. Although, whoever has KenLevine working for them can also be a candidate. (The L4D/2 community split is irrelevant now. L4D2 is like $5 during sales.)
I'm a Pc gamer and to me Valve can do no wrong but I'm not gonna be bias. Rockstar is awesome and I can almost say they are better than Valve but lets take a look and I'll throw ND in just for fun. Naughtgy Dogg: Crash Bandicoot, Jak and Dexter, Uncharted. 3 solid series with Uncharted blazing new trails in console action adventure. Valve: Half Life, Team Fortress, Counter Strike, Portal, L4D, DotA, Day of Defeat, Alien Swarm. The first 5 games in this list are either the genres benchmark, or what every developer is trying to copy. Rockstar: GTA, Red Dead, Max Payne Midnight Club, Bully, Manhunt, L.A. Noire. Take any two games out of this list and it's enough to beat 90% of all developers as far as innovation, quality, and game play. ND is fantastic but they maybe need 2 more franchises to compare. Bioware or Blizzard would have been better on this list. Again ND is a AAA Dev so i'm not dissing them they just don't have as many franchises. Rockstar or Valve take your pick. For me it's Valve because they are mod friendly and I've played HL2 Deathmatch against the developers a couple times but in no way am I dissing R* cause they are the best Console Developer PERIOD and many would say best Game Developer of all time.
Rockstar Is 100 Times Better Than Naughty Dog, Naughty Dog Is Brilliant As I Bought & Loved The First Three Crash Bandicoot Games But Rockstar Releases Better Games
The Warriors is awesome, too bad I can't play it on my PS3... I miss the PS2...
rockstar was the best until gta4 that was the biggest pile of shit ever naughty dog have never let me down so imo they are the best
The first one was awesome, then it went downhill.
Max Payne 2 was great, and better than the first.
anyone else think the graphics look outdated, dreading what the ps3 version will look like :/
Well make Max Payne LOOK like Max Payne and it should give some reasurance to the fans. I mean why set it 12 years after the second game, I don't want to play an older Max.....it's only the third game, fair enough if it was coming up to the 5th or 6th Max Payne. I wonder why we havent heard much about it though, I wonder if Rockstar has heard the complaints about it and are changing it.
No. This doesn't fit in with the theme of the previous games. Max looks nothing like Max. Personally, I'm ignoring it and I don't do that very often for ANY Rockstar games.
lol... where is this game now? i haven't heard about this game since that gameinformer cover story......
i doubt R* can deliver the true max payne experience without remedy
Can rockstar deliver? If they can make a table tennis game look badass then they certainly pull this off!
if they are seriously into making another entry into this franchise, i'd rather they just reboot the whole thing than to crap all over remedy's work, and assign rockstar vancouver to bully 2 and team bondi to max payne.
After Alan Wake, the real question would have been if Remedy could deliver. Seems like Remedy is getting closer to becoming the next Free Radical. But another question as a side note - how many games are Rockstar going to release before they ever get around to releasing that PS3 exclusive they were supposedly committed to? Looks like Sony took one up the pooper when Rockstar got out of the GTA exclusivity deal. LA Noire is releasing soon as well and Sony helped with funding on that project for quite some time before they got out because Rockstar was playing games with them.
Form what i've seen, Rockstar have ruined the series. I don't know what that is, but its not Max payne. More like generic Rockstar chav #67
The first Max Payne for pc is one of my fave games of all time. I then played the second one and felt the storyline, the strongest point I felt about the series was just poor, at best. Gameplay was definitely an improvement. Only the Police commissioner and Mona still alive at the end of the second game, there isn't really much to revisit for a third one within New York. No inner circle, No gangster bosses, No russians, what else is there left? I love Max's character and with what was said about him and the gameplay in the Game Informer preview a year ago I actually cannot wait to play this new part of his life.
This is going to be GTA:MAX PAYNE much like Red Dead became GTA:Cowboys
And that is what scares the hell out of me. Gta open world missions have their place but NOT in Max Payne. I will be really pissed off if its GTA: max payne
im gonna get this just because its rockstar
I haven't played the first Max Payne game in a long time but, from what I remember of it, it was actually slightly better than the second game to me (although he general consensus tends to be that both games are about as good as each other). The dream sequence was scarier for a start. And the restaurant was a great scene in the first game and being in the underground station - and New York in general was a grittier one in the first game. The second game focussed on a love story between himself and Mona Sax and, whilst it was a solid sequel with technically better visuals, it wasn't a particularly surprising one and didn't sell spectacularly. The comic book sequences in the first game had been amusing in how corny they seemed - all the 'actors' looked like they really did just work 'in the office' and had been asked to be put in the game to save a bit of money. In the second game they seemed to have gone more professional but it arguably took away some of the amateurish charm that was in the first game's comic stills, a game that pleasingly seemed to come from nowhere to me and was a cult joy. However the first walk through the fun house in the second game makes it worth playing. But if you only play one Max Payne game, play the first in my opinion. Rockstar might have decided to make it very different because the second game had been so similar to the first. But even so they had better has some references to the first 2 games - wouldn't it be great if these screenshots are just the tip of the iceberg and, in fact, Max Payne ends up in some very similar situations to the first games in parts? Like he could end up on a film set of New York, in a shoot out. The game has to be self referential in part to be a Max Payne game.
I really enjoyed Max Payne 1 & 2 and I would love to have MP3 in the format of the first 2 just to complete the trilogy. The gritty city, winter, leather Jacket, evil Aesir Corp. Rockstar is one of if not the best developer so I'm sure MP3 will be of quality. But personally I believe MP3 will be Rockstars answer to Call of Duty. I hope I'm wrong.
Max Payne is Remedy's love child. I'm pretty sure R* will make a great game out of this but based on all the screenshots and information the game just isn't Max Payne anymore. I don't mind that Max has changed so much. What I do mind is the change of the setting. I'm not saying it should be NY but it should be dark and gritty. Those screenshots are all sunshine and palm trees. This shouldn't be called Max Payne, rather Max Tan Lines.
