Rockstar Games have just Released the First Max Payne Trailer
No it doesn't it looks generic, poorly written, the graphics look rough. The story is so typical. Waht is this Taken meets Splinter Cell Chaos Theory? The bullet time effect looks crappy. Not one thing about this looked good. Even the asses dancing around at the beginning looked all texture clippy and what not. Plus these choppy framerate slowmo trailers just look bad. This looks bad. I loved the Max Payne series too, but this feels so wrong.
How the hell would you know if the story is typical? When all we have seen is a short trailer, Also its not out till next year so the graphics that i thought looked good will be improved along with all the effects.
I disagree with you. The game looks incredible IMO. Also, the new bullet time effect clearly wasn't fully represented in that trailer so I don't understand how you could judge it this early on.
Thanks for your opinion. I can add you to my list of a whole slew of people on this site that have terrible opinions. Max Payne rocks and I think the trailer looks good. Its pretty amazing how someone can tell all of that detail from a tiny little video.
Yeah, I'm sure if this was a another stupid GTA game about "from rags to riches" you'd be quite comfortable, right? Since you wanna talk about typical. This looks way better than I'd imagined and easily the best looking Rockstar game ever.
i say they cancel the project and give it back to remedy 'imo' , they just f'ed up max payne and i dont like that new direction
Hate on me all you want. I just don't think the trailer looks impressive. I never said anything about GTA being any better or any R* game for the matter. I forget once you disagree with anything here, one side of the crowd will always bash you.
Apart from Red Dead Redemption, Rockstar Games have been very overrated this gen. I'll pass on this until it hits the bargain bin.
i acully think the graphics are nice :) But i do think that the script looks poorly written in this trailer.I dont like the voice actor
Well I don't know what the final verdict will be on this game, lets hope the story manages at least a few surprises, but all things considered I'm not going to say the trailer looks amazing but it does look really good so far.
@Muffins1223 lulz. Its the same voice actor from the previous Max Payne games.
LoL, dude, wtf u talkin about? Thats same voice actor from the other Max Payne games. OT: this looks quite bad, it doesnt follow the theme of Max Payne at all. I'm really disappointed
I wanna see gameplay.
So Nuka you played the full game to come to that conclusion? Awesome!!! We have another Amazing Kreskin at N4G.COM
whats so amazing about?
I think its amazing to be able to jump into the Max Payne universe again. Had so much fun back in the day playing this game. I wouldn't call this trailer amazing, but it looks good and I want to see more.
Can you say Man on Fire? That was a rubbish Denzel Washington movie. This just looks like rubbish period.
It says Max Payne on it. Obviously what will happen now is all the fan boys will gush pearls of man love all over their monitors, gooing up the screen making it impossible to see all the mediocrity behind it. You can also replace Max Payne with - Nintendo - Xbox - Ps3 - Apple - World Of Warcraft etc. etc. and it would still pertinent to the point.
I have fond memories of the original on PC. Not sure how I feel about this. Why does he look like some overweight trailer park trash now?
Max seems to suffer from depression... Im looking forward to this...although its not true to the film noir type style as the previous titles...I do expect a good outcome out of this one...a very interesting one...
I played only a bit of the first game a long time ago when it was released on Xbox and PC. Is it worth going back to play for the story and gameplay? I finished Alan Wake and I thought its story was pretty good.
@Eamon Yes, its totally worth it. Just within the last 2 months I beat the first and second Max Payne games again for probably the 4th time. Story and gameplay are still amazing.
I don't care what it looks like, it doesn't look anything like Max Payne to me. This could end up being a good game, don't get me wrong. But there's no reason to slap the Max Payne name on it when you're taking all the story elements out of the game, like Far Cry 2 did. To all the people saying 'we haven't seen the full story though!': so you think Rockstar is trying to mislead us with the storyline by giving us this trailer? You think they're just going to add back all the elements from the original game, even though this one takes place thousands of miles away?
Uh why not? Games can do that you know? Take you on a journey through flashbacks? Flash forwards? Stop with your backwards thinking and get over yourself, this game can be just as good as the older Max Payne games and I think it will be. The story can take all kinds of twists and turns and a one and a half minute trailer isn't going to show you that, naturally. There ARE pics of him in NYC just to shut you up too, so yeah, I DO think that Rockstar can mislead us into thinking that we're only going to be in one location when, in fact, we'll be in diverse locales spanning several dark and ominous routes that will take you back to what made Max Payne so special in the first place.
@rocky047586: Having an opinion means I need to "get over [myself]"? Please. Just because my opinion differs from yours doesn't mean I need to get over myself. Get a grip. I have seen the pictures of Max Payne in New York, so please don't patronize me. There is also a brief clip of that in this video, if you didn't catch it. It would be extremely odd for Rockstar to release a trailer that isn't indicative of the storyline in the actual game. Because, ya know, misleading Max Payne fans to thinking it's going to be a drastic departure in terms of story and tone is a great way to keep your customers.
Ill make my final decision after the game has been released but at the current moment, Im not happy with the trailer either, or the story and character for that matter. Its like they took everything I loved about the Max Payne games and just ripped it apart. I hope it will be a good game, but Im not confident since Remedy isn't developing the game.
@ayepecks & MarkusMcNugen, i totally agree with you guys. I wish remedy were workin on this series.
Yes, it does look good. Imagine when the PC modding community gets through with this, it will look much better. They will even give Max Payne some hair in the parts that he's bold :)
Lol I wonder.. the part where he says having a bad hangover and he shaves his head but keeps the beard... Looks just like zach galifinakis from the hangover
They kept the music I absolutely loved from Max Payne 2 so they win nostelga points from me for that. Other than that, it seems odd. Pretty odd but R* have not only not done me wrong this gen, they've given me at least 2 of my favorite games this gen. So I'll give them the benefit of the doubt. Don't let me down R*. Love Max Payne and R* so let's hope they mesh well in MP3.
This does not look like a max payne game at all.
Did anyone think that when it got to 28/29 seconds with the people dancing...it kind of just ruined the moment of that great doom and gloom intro and song (although they couldn't even use a new theme song, I'm pretty sure it's the same one from Max Payne 2) Looks like another amazing Rockstar game but....sorry to say it just didn't really feel like Max Payne. Why the hell did he shave his hair off, I thought he lost it over time but they made him do it on purpose. I want it to feel like I'm playing Max, not another bald brute.
I agree, it definitely doesn't feel like the same Max Payne. I enjoyed the film noir visuals of the first two games, and this trailer makes it look like it's moving toward a more generic action game style. Actually, the only thing about the trailer that makes it feel like a MP game is bullet time. I don't think the game looks bad, and I guess some of the changes can be chalked up to character and story progression, but it seems like it could be a new IP instead of Max Payne 3.
May aswell set it in Russia in the 1950s and called it Agent. Then let people see a true Max Payne game off Remedy. Does anyone else find it funny how this trailer is all over...and I'm not talking about games sites I'm talking about general news or film websites. I didn't think people outside the gaming world were that interested in Max Payne. However I hate how fake they sound, saying how it feels like the old games....sorry but it really dosen't.
Whatever, all you have to do is put Rockstar Games on the box and I'd be buying. Day 1 confirmed.
man. payne looks nothing like his ps2 counterpart. the should've been expected...^^
Agreed. Totally better graphics :D
Im not exactly positive what your getting at with this comment, but Ill take a shot in the dark. If your referring the differences between the character from Max Payne 1 and 2, its because Sam Lake used his own face for Max in the first game. Then when they made the second game he wanted to use a real actor, especially since the tech for making third-person games grew a lot since the first title. If your referring to this new character looking nothing like the Max from Max Payne 2, its because Rockstar changed the story very drastically from what the previous 2 games were like. So with such a large change in the story, Im sure they wanted to update the characters looks, age him, and make him try to fit the new story they have developed. Either way, I personally am not a fan of a new bald, old man Max Payne.
I am not impressed the whole dark noire vibe is gone.sure the game could turn out good but it's not the max payne sequel I have wanted.
Not gonna' lie, I was impressed. And that classic Max Payne theme pulled me right in.
Is that the guy from 24 doing his voice ? I dont think its the original actor
nope its definitely James McCaffrey http://www.imdb.com/name/nm...
Yea dude. I recognized his voice as soon as he started speaking. So glad they kept the original voice actor.
I'm just glad they kept the same voice actor.
Shame they didn't keep the same writer. I tend to like Sam Lakes mind f**king storylines ;P Ah well. I'm sure Rockstar has something up their sleeve.
I used to watch my brother play Max Payne 1. I never actually played it myself (I was actually 10 when I watched him play the games :P) I think ill have to play through Max Payne 1 and 2 because I want this game :D
Its Rockstar. Its Max Payne. Rockstar are the most reliable game developers out there and definitely my favorite. Max Payne was one of my favorite series on the PS2. If this turns out to be a poor game i will eat my socks.
Bah, they've turned it into Die hard. It should be about the noir, that's everything that made Max Payne great and they've taken it away.
WTF Bruce Willis is doing games now lol, damn this game looks good.
I hope it has the graphic novel cut scenes like the previous games.
They've been replaced by more motion-comic style cutscenes using the in-game engine
His face, his clothes, the environment, his weapons, the gameplay, it's all different. I'm a guy who doesn't get annoyed with chance, in fact I welcome it, but this... The only thing that's related to Max is the theme that's playing over the top from Max Payne 2. I'm sure it'll be a pretty good game, just not a good Max Payne game. It hurts to play the first two Max Paynes knowing what the franchise has turned into. Still getting it though, and still playing it to the end.
The only problem i see is that i dont think rockstar's graphics fits with the dark vibe of game but alan wake graphics engine definitely would.
Oops, I meant *change, not chance, in my previous post. But yeah, I agree there! I personally haven't played Alan Wake as I'm a PC and Nintendo gamer, but I REALLY want to. I've seen many videos of Alan Wake's gameplay, and I think the engine would have been perfect for Max Payne 3 :) What's the deal with the multi-player by the way? I mean some single-player games would be great with multi-player, like Just Cause 2! But Max Payne? Hmm, it's going to be very interesting to see the final product.
One thing I've come to respect Rockstar for is using direct-feed footage in their gameplay trailers. I can see jaggies, so it means it isn't post-processed, doctored bullsh*t footage when watching in 720p. That being said, I'm quite interested in this game, and it's Rockstar. They have my attention.
I'll have to put this game on my watch list.
glad to see credit is given where it is due.
Who cant wait for Max Payne 3? THIS GUY!!!!!!
Is this gonna be an open world game ?
Probably not the first 2 werent so i wouldnt count on it, you never know tho
When he says "This was a hell of a hangover" he is shaving his head to look like Alan from the Hangover 2.
Keep the formula of the first game, if you have to make the world bigger, then do so without sacrificing the pacing and not make another GTA-esque mission based gameplay. Looks like it's available on PC, I was really hoping for that. By the way, the trailer did get me pumped up. -End statement
Im glad to see Max Payne fans are infinitely more mature than dmc ones
I liked that trailer, Kind of "Man on Fire" esque but more action based. But dammmmnnnn Max let himself go.
