First Max Payne 3 Screenshots Released

By Chris Faylor, Jun 23, 2009 1:06pm PDT

Following the recent flood of details, the first screenshots from Rockstar Vancouver's Max Payne 3 have arrived, providing a better look at the aged, bald and pot-bellied protagonist.

Set 12 years after the events of Remedy's Max Payne 2 and packing a cover system that is "not the focus of the game," the anticipated sequel hits PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 this winter.

  • EKURIOX..Dude, step away from the keyboard. Better yet stay away from the computer entirely. Here's a quick walk through your post.

    "If you recall playing the first game.. hardly anyone does.. but i played some of it"

    First of all this is Max Payne 3, that means there were TWO titles in the series before this one, and I along with many readers remember this game all too well.

    Second of all the photo realistic graphics created quite a little stir before it's release, and after a few delays it was still on the most wanted lists for many gamers including myself. Keep in mind the Matrix which came out in 1999 (which coincidentally is the year you were born) was still very fresh in people mind so the idea to slow down time and unload a clip into someone while you're diving for cover was VERY cool.

    And lastly, as someone who claims they only played some of it, it clearly labels you as someone who has no idea about what he's talking about.

    NO open world, NO mini games and Rockstars "game interface" remains unchanged since the first 3D Grand Theft Auto (Yea there was a GTA in 2D, several of them, I bet you didn't know that either)

  • Max Payne has been given a brand new, look completely.. The story will probably been the least renovated, but then.. the story was one of the first action suspense game titles ever hit the gamers..

    Ever since Rockstar bough the story line title to this game.. they were wanting to expand the ability of the gamer.. They liked 3drealms old approach of realism action... So my take is that this.. will be continued.. lot of dynamic realistic motion.. But thats like GTA IV anyways..

    Which being the GTA developers who takin the game title to the shelves, you should expect an open world exploration.. Probably with some motion ability.. that give the game a fast paced, strategic edge.. like the game wanted, all though wanted being WBs game.. im jst using a rough idea here..

    If you recall playing the first game.. hardly anyone does.. but i played some of it, got bored cause of all the lame graphics, but the story was interesting..

    Max Payne played a agent.. sometimes his own undercover, investigator.. that never had much patience for the trash of society.. already uncovering his wifes death.. he probably must be out to uncover that old super corporation plot...

    Using that as a idea, or guess.. I bet.. the game will have..
    1- a open world to explore, solve puzzles, find clues..
    2- mini games, side missions..
    3- a dynamic game play.. able to play stealthy , or play loudly..(?)

    either way Rockstar knows how to make games.. Both with graphics, storylines, game interface that are usually.. like no other..

    Thats what I think anyways...
