In the year of threes, with Mass Effect 3 and Diablo 3 on the horizon, I can’t help but feel the same excitement for this third installment of an almost forgotten franchise. It’s now over eight years since The Fall of Max Payne was released and I, like many mournful cynics out there, had almost given up hope. Max was dead.
But then Rockstar come to the rescue and put the defibrillator to Max’s chest, breathing new life into the empty souls of so many fans. Rockstar seem to be working hard on this, the return of Max Payne, and I can’t help but put my bias cap on and be sure that this game will blow my head off with a shotgun of majesty! The movement looks fluid, the weapons sound great, the noir voice and dialogue have remained unchanged (from what I heard) and most of all, bullet time!
Rockstar have also released a behind the scenes kind of introspective look into the development of the game… watch and see how good it looks!
Release date is set for March, so between saving the universe in the new Mass Effect and saving the girl in Max Payne 3… there will be plenty of fun to be had. Or not, they might be crap 😉
