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.
Gears of War was *the game* on Xbox Live during the early days of the Xbox 360. It was an important title for Microsoft because they needed something to keep us waiting for Halo. Times have changed. (1 Hour ago)
@Moonwalker: I really doubt it would have been a success or have become a franchise without multiplayer. It was just a run of the mill shooter. (1 Hour ago)
@GriftGFX: Hmm..well for me it was all about the great campaigns, not so much MP. (1 Hour ago)
Why isn't MS promoting Ori and the Blind Forest at all? It comes out March 11, come on MS. (1 Hour ago)
