They kept the signature music, and James McCaffrey.

YES! Love it.

Well...that doesnt look like Max Payne at all. First two games were quite unique with all that dark story etc. If not the title they wouldnt catch any attention after this trailer. Dont get me wrong, it might turn out well but as much as I like progress this aint Max Payne at all.

I have faith in Rockstar but what's with the heavy aliasing?
Commented on 2011-09-14 18:19:56
Looked good enough for me considering it's the game's debut trailer. I definitely agree about the level of aliasing though.

Over a hundred milion $ awful to be honest.

I'm going to get into trouble now with Froz: it's americanised. It has become die hard. I'm still sure it will be a very good game, but it's not Max Payne. Where is the darkness?

Payne looks a lot like Kane from Kane and lynch when he has the beard and wears the costume.

Another day...another awesome series dumbed down...

This not Max Payne because this is not a Remedy Game.

Is the gaming industry so bad that everyone, now, needs to say, "THIS TRAILER WAS 100% MADE IN-GAME!!!!!!". What the hell? Also, this has nothing to do with Max Payne, too much color, but it might turn out reasonable.

How is this dumbed down, how has this too much color and what´s wrong with 100% ingame trailers?

I don´t understand.

I don't agree when they say it's dumbed down (you can't tell that from this trailer), but it's not Max Payne. Max payne lives in a dark place (mentally and physically). Now it looks like a third person shooter with Bruce Willis in his Die Hard outfit, in a sunny place. That is not the Max Payne vibe.

The guy looks horrible
Commented on 2011-09-14 19:48:03
The trailer is good, but it is(like most of the comments)too happy in a sense that the dark and eary "Max Payne" vibe is gone.

I really hope they are able to maintain the dark vibe, but I think Hitman: Absolution overtook that.
Let's hope that Rockstar Games is able to fix this.

The handsome Max Payne has gone and left this... Thing.
Commented on 2011-09-14 20:02:32
Looks pretty cool to me. Looking forward to it. Hope it's better then MP2. Didnt like that game much at all, not compared to the first.
Commented on 2011-09-14 20:18:43
I agree with everyone above.

Where's the psychological aspect of it?
Too much shit gets watered down into an action title this generation.
Commented on 2011-09-14 20:20:32
Well at least he didn't go bald the "natural" way. So he can always grow hairs back. Hate the belly though. Max Payne should be slim and fit.
Commented on 2011-09-14 20:22:01
Looks like a movie :/
Commented on 2011-09-14 20:30:45
Looks bad. The music is epic but the settings and the main character just don't look right at all

>:8 RRRAAAAAGGGEE >:8 ;) I got what you meant by that from your explanation last time :). Of course, I love die hard, so it doesn't bother me, lol. I was thinking that exact thing (Die Hard). It is hard to see Max Payne without the night-time/urban/rain/snow, but I still don't care. I'll bet it is really good anyway...

what??! He's not a super hero, he's supposed to be a real man with real issue.

I think a lot of people are being very silly with criticism of this new direction. I think this game might end up under appreciated because of it.

I think it's refreshing to see a game franchise really move and develop.

Uh what looks so bad about this? I think it looks pretty good so far. Yes the familiar crooked mouthed max payne is gone, but shit that was ten years ago. He's older and represented more realistically now. And the first game was not all dark and dreary. I remember it pretty well. It was very sharp on my old PC and had some pretty colorful scenes. Give it a freakin chance

About the game

What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @GriftGFX: yea, viewport performance in maya has improved the last year or so on geforce cards, it used to be hamstrung. (55 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker FFXV has actually gone gold, wow. New footage too and the difference from the two demos is crazy: [url] (56 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX But it's a pretty cool device. And the dial is really cool. If I could use that on my Cintiq I'd buy one in a heartbeat. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I wouldn't expect workstation performance out of any all-in-one. And I hate the idea of piggybacking computation to monitors. (1 Hour ago)
