its a Rockstar game, what more do you want?

ape0072322d ago (Edited 2322d ago )

R* games doesn't only have fun (while everything else is SILLY, SOULLESS, BLAND and CHILDISH)

R* games have Fun, Gameplay, quality, epicness, rich environment, great narrative, awesome voice acting, great production values, incredible physics, high replay values and "THAT" magical atmosphere.

Call of Duty: Modern warfare 3 would have been one of the greatest games of all time if Activision do their business like R* Games (Quality+sales)

I didn't really have this game high up on my radar, but after seeing gameplay trailers, and hearing a lot of good about it, I'm starting to consider the purchase.

gtxgamer22322d ago

if you want a fun game, then its max payne. a real gamer would know that

Exactly :)

I guess you didn't play GTA4 i only agree with you on the incredible physics but thats about it.

ape0072322d ago

what lol, GTA 4 is one of my favorite games ever

ABizzel12322d ago


I didn't care that much for the previous games. There were decent, but not up to what I've seen in MP3.

"its a Rockstar game, what more do you want"

You know I hear that alot but the thing's not their game, it's not even their franchise. This game is basicaly new territory for them since they didn't create anything Max Payne related

They didn't create the characters, the setting, the atmosphere, the noir, the world of Max Payne so doing this game is a totaly new thing for them to we can't go around saying "Oh its a Rockstar game, what more do you want" because there is a possibility that they could drop the ball with this. If you think too much like that then if the worst comes to it and it really dosen't feel like Max Payne when playing the game you probably won't complain about it untill 8/10 months later just like what happened with GTA4. Since they never created anything that made Max Payne.....Max Payne it's pretty obvious why after everything we've seen it dosen't feel like a MP game. I mean their first mistake was moving it to Brazil, wheres the noir in that.

I don't want to downplay MP3 but you can't say it's going to be good when it's a Rockstar game because isn't, it's a Remedy game MADE by Rockstar and they have a lot to live up to.

Dee_912322d ago

well who made this max payne?

Rainstorm812322d ago (Edited 2322d ago )

Rockstar brought MP 1 and 2 to consoles so its not as new of territory as you make it seem, besides what wrong with a new environment, i actually like the brazil setting and the "Man on Fire" presentation

People say it will be good because of Rockstar's well earned reputation for quality, and while it is Remedy's game, As far as devs go ill take R* over Remedy anyday....

Just look what happened when they went head to head..Red Dead Redemption and Alan Wake

Besides there is no bigger endorsement for Max Payne 3 than one coming from Remedy's CEO himself

humbleopinion2322d ago

You know that people said the same about Red Dead Redemption, right? Rockstar bought the IP but the original Red Dead Revolver wasn't their game...

... and that turned out pretty well I think. So I am expecting no less from a game based on the Max Payne franchise which was awesome to begin with. Rockstar know their game.

omi25p2322d ago

Nolan North Didn't create Batman and look how that turned out.

Remedy is same devs of Alan wake right? Well, I know most people have low standards in this planet. ... =/

NYC_Gamer2322d ago

Remedy just dropped the ball with Alan Wake...its hard to believe they actually created the old classic Max Payne games.....

Hisiru2322d ago

ritsuka666 and NYC_Gamer
Are you guys new in the gaming industry?

Remedy is an excellent developer, Alan Wake was something different... I am not saying it's a bad game, it's just not for everyone.

ritsuka6662322d ago

I can't believe it took Remedy five years to develop this game. This is not a game I would honestly recommend to anyone.

TheGameFoxJTV2321d ago

WTF, Alan Wake is a very good game. Since when has Alan Wake ever been anything close to a bad game?

Kalowest2322d ago

Same here, great story and graphics.

ape0072322d ago

Remedy Max Payen 1 and 2 were amazing

360GamerFG2322d ago

Translation: these guys make games that don't come to my console. I don't like them!

I don't know why people are doubting this game. It will be a game that will be talked about all year.

VanillaBear2322d ago (Edited 2322d ago )

As I've said before this will be a great game but it won't feel like a Max Payne sequel. They've just changed too much that made the first two so great

I mean no offense but it's not like Remedy are going to say something negative about it.....first of all it's thier old franchise, secondly , it's Rockstar..if they something negative about Rockstar they would be called for it and lastly even if they did have problems with it, it's not like they can do anything now, I mean they know this so whats the point causing a fuss when they know nothing will change, may aswell keep Rockstar happy instead of casuing a rift between them.

Series_IIa2322d ago

Have you even played Max Payne 2? Even that felt completely different and until you've played the game you cannot keep passing judgement.

Get over it, don't play it if you're some pretentious zoid who thinks any change is bad to a series which had a crap ending for Max Payne 2 anyway, even on dead on arrival difficulty.

DrPepper2322d ago (Edited 2322d ago )

dude how do you know if it wont feel like a max payne game. you haven't played the damn thing. looks can be deceiving
