As promised, here are a bunch of videos of Max Payne 3 captured with a retail version of the game. Though the tiny crosshair does not always make it easy to aim (more than once we found ourselves looking for it on the screen), playing this third installment in the franchise is a lot of fun. Max is still Max, which means he comes with some serious baggage and he kills a lot of bad guys. There is a slight change in terms of atmosphere but the story is as dark as ever. A very good action game in the end, but we were surprised to see so many cutscenes, as we're not sure the hardcore fans will enjoy having to sit and watch quite regularly, instead of simply playing.
@Megido: It's clearly still memorable for you after 16 years, so they were doing something right. Better to be remembered than not at all. (48 minutes ago)
I have a hard time when a fat bomber rolls around on skated with a parasol cocktail in his hand, whilst doing a pseudo-philosophical monologue about life. It's neither funny or cool, it's just dumb. (6 Hours ago)
@Melmoth: Yeah, but MGS1 has a good balance, 2 and onward doesn't. IMO. (6 Hours ago)
@Megido: that's the beauty of metal gear :). the mix of realism and (wtf) fantasy (7 Hours ago)

Especially on MGS4, he made it sound like he had a clog of saliva in his throat. (10 Hours ago)
@Megido: I think i'm the minority on this, but the VA for Snake (forgot his name) didn't click with me. (10 Hours ago)
