Rockstar Games is promising that Max Payne 3 will be full of the things we know and love from the first two. And of course it's going to be dark...
When has a Rockstar game been "Light"
If it was Rockstar you would of made sure to adress this problem in the first ever trailer of Max Payne 3.........but you guys didn't even though you knew all of us Max Payne fans were worried from the start Now if I knew someone was worried about my product I would of made sure to adress the problems when giving them the first look at it. It only makes sense So I really can't take Rockstar seriously here...sorry I think they've got to a big headed stage now where they're like "Oh screw them, they'll buy it anyway....we ARE Rockstar after all" It will be a good game but it won't be Max Pyane 3. It will be too heavily focused on action. Kind of like how when we wanted horror in RE5....which Capcom promised, "Fear you can't forget" and it was non exsistent in the game, even though they reassured us. "Even though we do not want to go into the details, we can say that Max has spent several years trying to drink and forget what he has experienced. He has decided for themselves that these events make it impossible for him to continue working for the New York police. " Und so gelangt er nach Brasilien. And so he arrived in Brazil" Sorry but the Max Payne I know...dosen't run away with anything. He would of quit the New York police after the first game if that was the case. Admit it you guys have set it in the wrong place for a MP game and theres no going back
Max Payne has a beerbelly... and there will be a multyplayer mode... in hot and sunny Brazil. Sorry but noir in Brazil is something I just can't picture... Yep. The franchise has been killed. Great job Rockstar.
Okay look... I played the first 2 Max Payne games. SO i understand exactly what makes Max Payne... you know.. Max Payne... The only thing we saw so far is a trailer that lasted only about a minute and 30 seconds.. Thats not much to go on.. Just because the game takes place in "sunny brazil" doesnt mean the games story line wont be dark or gritty. So people need to chill out. The game doesnt come out until March of 2012..
"The only thing we saw so far is a trailer that lasted only about a minute and 30 seconds.. Thats not much to go on.." It was enough to see what direction there taken it in though As WL has said if the game was dark and Rockstar respected the old MP games then they would of shown this in the first official trailer. Short or not they still could of shown us that this will be like old MP games but they didn't, they only showed bright sunny day time levels, MP as the new Bruce Willis and lots and lots and lots of action. Basicaly what I got out of that trailer wasn't MP3, it was Die Hard 5 and if Rockstar were telling the truth then they would of shown this in the first trailer to show this...but they didn't. Come on as the guy has said above if you knew people were worried about your game, you would of made the trailer in a way that would of addressed those problems. The only thing in the trailer that was MP was when he actually looked like himself, the night time levels and the MP2 theme song (which felt out of place and just put in there for the sake of it)......but even Rockstar couldn't be arsed to included a new theme song for the game, that's if they even have one
i still think they should just halt it and give it back to remedy when they r ready, the only things that were max payne in the trailer were the theme, and the voice actor nothing more nothing less

I hate this debate. it's seams so over run with people who have no idea what they are complaining about. The fact that Max is bold , the colors , all stupid things. "Noire" dose not mean "lack of light and color" or "East cost city". it's about the themes of the story. It's the story that have to be "noir", not the setting or frame work.
I think max payne 3 will be interesting for ppl who followed the previous games. I wonder if there will be some hd remakes of the 1st game and 2nd game to bundle with max payne 3. But im sure rockstargames will make the story realistic and ending max payne 3 with like a closure ending. So that they can move onto new projects.
I'm not sure anything could hold back the fashionistas hussy fits over this and DMC, you know, the dudes who can judge a complete game on hair style alone.
Exactly. This is the DmC fiasco all over again. Judge the game based on its own merits, and not to other games within the same series or otherwise.
i have played both the previous games and i must i really like the change i must say its good as the same thing over and over isnt good and its the same reason i stopped playing cod and i have already preordered it
We havent had a MP game for ages, so even if it was set in the cold, doom and gloom New York it wouldn't of been the same since it's a new engine and it would be a breath of fresh air to see New York all done up for this gen consoles. COD however comes out year after year...so of course it will be the same. Your logic is flawed
but living in the same city after he lost his job,wife,kids and the s**t after that it wouldnt make any sense living in new york will it? and man its a rockstar game so it does mean something that they are going with this direction so lets see what happens
I wish remedy owned the Max Payne rights.atleast we would get a true sequel.
Who was worried?
I really don't know why ppl hate this game so much already. I am a HUGE MP fan, I actually played MP 2 just yesterday and it is still as awesome as first time I played it. With that said, I really don't get it why you ppl hate this already and say like - Rockstar destroyed the game. They destroyed it because he is now bald and got a bear belly? Seriously? You are not thinking outside the box - this is a Max Payne game we talk about, with that I mean, It would be "weird" if it was CoD 7 and suddenly the guy you fight as have a bear belly, but this is MAX, he have gone thru hell and back ppl. If you don't remember play mp 2 again. I feel like in MP2 Max was already totally breaking up inside, his wife and child slaughterd, he had crazy nightmares about it(running after a blood trail with his child crying), he had to take pills to get them "some what" stable, and don't let me start talking about the ghost visions + he almost died because he tried to save a girl, and when he saved her she died in his arms. And oh, THAT IS THE SECOND WOMAN THAT HE LOVED (Tho it was hard for him to love her first) but when he let him self love a woman again after his wife died.... SHE DIED! In his arms. So its not strange that he have started to drink ALLOT to forget about stuff, IN EVEY MP GAME the devs have told a hard and very raw and uncut story about a guy fighting to save ppl, and even save his own mind from becoming crazy, but how hard he fight, they just die all around him. Friends / loved ones ... You get the point So like I said its not strange that he started drinking and got a bear belly, there is a word 4 it: HE HAVE LOST IT! - HE DON'T CARE ANY MORE!!! ANd second: You ppl complain about a sunny place that is not new York, I understand what you mean ppl, The new York theme in mp1+2 gave an extra "power" to that raw and uncut feeling with police sirens that you know from real life and a city landscape that almost every one recognize. But think about it this way ppl. IT WONT BE SUNNY ALL THE TIME in the game, it will probably be night missions a lot (Can't call them missions I know), but don't know what to call them :). - It will probably rain - thunder and flashes maybe - and as you can see there is some big city buildings on the wallpaper. So you can bet there will be a gritty feeling with running in a corridor with the rain hitting the window and thunder outside. If I know Max right tho it can even be that he is not running, he is limping and leaning against a wall and thx to rockstar new game engine we will probably see blood traces on the wall when he move on down thru the hallway to. I agree with you ppl that this game is nothing in the way like MP2 but think about it ... Would you like it if it was EXACTLY the same ? THe same city that you have seen over and over, the same houses? The same storage places, the same hallway corridors? .... Think about it? ANd oh, the comic strips will be back so you don't have to worry about that. Now I will go back to Max Payne 2 again and replay it for the 4th time :D
Full Disclaimer: I haven't beaten a Max Payne game before. I bought Max Payne 2 the other day for pc(I'm a console gamer but I find that my laptop can not only play older games but actually make them look better). I've yet to actually play it but I watched the cinematic "Previously on Max Payne" and from what I gathered from it it seems(as you have pointed out) Max was pretty broken when his family was murdered... So I don't get above posts where people say "MY Max Payne would never in a bazillion years quit teh force and drink!". It seems that would make sense to be the natural evolution of the character. I love when characters aren't perfect and have obvious flaws. Which is what intrigued me in MP3 to begin with and why I am going to play through MP2. The recurring theme SEEMS to be a man that is broken or is going through something horrible having to rise to the occasion... I really dig the comic style cut scenes also.
Will we see Mona in flashbacks or anything?
