good score, i cant wait for this one.

From what I've seen, the single player could be one of the best this generation. Highly anticipating this game.

i really cant wait for the single player, and i also cannot wait to play a max payne on psn with other people, i hope the multiplayer is worth while.

It's a good review. My one complaint is their derogatory view on cut scenes that are used to hide loading times. Last time I checked, this was preferred and we know there's going to be loading scenes. I'd rather see a cut scene than a rotating loading graphic.

Sadly, it seems this will turn into a game where multiplayer will be the after-release focus rather than any single player story add-ons. I don't do multiplayer, and I don't mind companies that want to give people more multiplayer options post-release, but it gets kind of tiring seeing multiplayer being the only focus after release. Perhaps if this continues on, I wouldn't mind seeing games spliced into two, single player and multiplayer, and only having to pay for the part(s) of the game I actually plan to partake of considering how much focus is given to multiplayer when all I play is single player.

Thankfully, these guys don't seem to actually give honest scores.

After watching the review, the score sounds fair.

I can see the faults they describe dragging the campaign down a bit, although everyone sounds enamored with the multiplayer. I'm more interesting in this for the solo game though, so I'm glad they didn't whitewash it and slap a 9 on the score just because the online is good.

Especialy when the single player is what made the past MP games so good

It's weird. After watching this I'm actually more excited for the SP campaign. The story seems to be what dragged the game down for this reviewer, but thats extremely subjective. I accept this persons opinion, but I'm expecting to have a much better time with this than he did.

And your right, virtually everyone seems to be enjoying the online multiplayer, so thats always a good sign.

Nah, I think it was more than just that. He mentioned bullet time issues from it ending as you hit any surface to it not helping considering enemies have very accurate aim and deal a lot of damage in many situations that you're forced into. He also mentioned bullet soaking enemies becoming a problem as you advanced, using bullet time primarily to get off head shots rather than their intended cinematic appeal, cut scenes that force you into new fight battles without any of your previous cover and even a completely different weapon equipped.

From the review, the reviewer had a lot of issues with the design of the gameplay overall, not just the story.

The problem is that there's only two gameplay mechanics in the whole game:
1. Shooting
2. Shooting in slow-mo
