        It reminded me a little bit of Army of 2 in the shots, honestly MP3 doesn't look good, why change it :(

          Cause they're fucking jerks. They wanna "put their own stamp on the franchise". Seriously what the FUCK!? At what point is Max Payne somehow in need of an update for todays audience. IT'S A MODERN GAME.

              What the fuck? Why would I be happy that the things I liked the most about the original two games are gone? WHY WOULD I NOT CARE ABOUT THAT AS A FAN DO YOU THINK GAMES SHOULD NOT HAVE FANS YOU JERK WHAT!?

          I have a funny feeling in the pre-planning production meeting they saw how Splinter Cell Convictions was changing and they thought they should change too to stay competitive. Then they saw at E3 the change that Convictions had and now I laugh in my head.

            I am not really really angry or even hateful over this, I enjoyed Max Payne 1 and 2 and I'm really tired of hating on so many things :(

            I am just I suppose confused and disapointed, I would have liked a Max Payne 3 but could also live without it, I don't see why these changes are being made at all, as George said in the actual screenshots thread, Max Payne isn't even an old franchise! Plus it sold over 7 million copies, why does it need a reboot?

              who said it's a reboot? it's not like they said they're rewriting anything that went before

              I look forward to it too. Different than say Chaos Theory but not as different as originally portrayed. Bad ass factor was found and put back into place.

                I admit was skeptical of the direction they were taking it in, but after the E3 gameplay footage I am sold. Any word on co-op like Chaos Theory?
