The game looks intriguing no doubt, for sure rental for the SP, but the MP just looks like run and gun like Uncharted 3 (which I absolutly despised) as well all pistols. Yeah you have some tactics; cover, roll, dive, but just looks silly all pistols blazing no one is using cover running towards each other, it looks hilarious.
I also know as great as these rockstar games look I've never loved any of them, not one. I know I'm in the minority not hating just to hate, just don't like them. Red Dead I thought was going to be different, but it wasn't, I'm guessing the same thing here, but I hope I'm wrong. However, I'm hearing good things from those that had the privledge to play this weekend #MLG tourney guys, they loved it.
I'm looking forward to the Last Of Us & Crysis 3, but they are far far away from release.
If they do a $20 preorder I'll get Max payne 3.
They already are asking for $30 for all dlc and no one has even played a demo or a beta. This is the first time on the big boy platforms and they want us to prepay for DLC ? So weak.
I haven't placed my order yet, but seriously, $30 for preordering DLCs is ridiculous (or $45 if bought later), especially when the game hasn't even been released! If it was $10, I would understand (like in the past with R* games like LA Noire), but if I'm going to be spending 90-105 bucks for a game, it better be a collector's edition or come with something special.
I'm really not liking game devs announcing DLCs before the game is even released. Either include them with the game or wait 6 months so it feels like we're getting something new, rather than feeling like we're being nickel-and-dimed from day 1.
its bs that game companies can announce DLC even before the game is released. especially for 30$ thats half the cost of a new game, the game looks interesting but it doesnt look 60$ interesting especially when you have to pay an extra 30$ for downloadable content which should already be included in the game.
wait 8 to 12 months , Max Payne 3 Complete edition will come for 49.99 or 59.99 dollars of course this is for the people who can wait this long .. by then , online players had ranked up , and got bored with the game ..
This is one of those games which is more single player based. The multiplayer is just a little bonus for all of you multiplayer gamers out there. I am only buying this for the single player campaign, which I think will be amazing. Day 1 for me!
Looks like most, if not all, of the DLC is multiplayer, which seems pretty basic. I'm not interested in that at all. I just want the single player campaign.
MoultonHawk says: "then why are you paying $60 for SP, just rent it."
I'm one of those people who plays a game again and again until I get a Platinum Trophy. And the Max Payne games are some of my all time favorite. To me, the $60 is worth it. Plus I'll get $10 Amazon Game Credit with my pre-order which I'll put down on Future Soldier or Spec Ops!
I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't like the majority of Rockstar's games. I lost interest in Grand Theft Auto after Vice City. I really disliked San Andreas with all of the simulation type stuff that was added. I played Red Dead a bit, but got bored after maybe 2 hours of play. I mean, missions about herding cattle and catching horses? Boring as, you know.... I generally don't like sandbox games because they lose too much purpose. There's too much aimless wandering about, just running into people who want favors from you. Anyway, the first 2 Max Payne games were great fun. I really liked the noir feel and the third-person, bullet-time enabled gunplay. They are two of my most favorite games. That said, I'm waiting for some reviews before I make the purchase on 3. I'm just not confident enough that it will be up to par with the first 2 after so much time and from what I've seen.
I'm a big fan of R* produced games and honestly L.A. Noire even though it wasn't R* responsible for producing the game which was Team Bondi which was some crazy company that treated their employees like crap and has since filed bankruptcy and is no longer in business.R* decided to invest a lot of money and published the game after Sony themselves stepped away and stopped supporting L.A. Noire years before and the game was nearly canceled several times.With all that being said I really enjoyed L.A. Noire and even beat all of the DLC cases and got the platinum for the game.L.A. Noire really is a unique game experience as long as you don't go into the game expecting a GTA type experience.As for R* other games like Red Dead Redemption which was produced by R* San Diego I really enjoyed the western open style game that had elements of a GTA game.But R* IMHO did a great job with the story.As for the multi player part of RDR I really liked it and spent a ton of time playing all of the online game modes.Heck RDR: Undead Nightmare still is one of the few great DLC content available for any game and R* did a good job on it considering it's a zombie themed DLC which has been crazily and overly done & played out by other game developers this console generation.Also if you still have RDR and haven't played it in awhile.Pop in the game disc and log into multi player and you will see to this day that online community for RDR is still very active on a lot of the popular game modes.As for GTA IV the main original story line was just to dark & serious.Online for GTA IV was a horrible mess and people lost interest in the game quick. I understand and respect the thread starter's view on R* games but seriously compare R*'s open world style games to say Infamous 1 &2, Just Cause, or the incredibly lame & stupid Saints Row games and it's not even close.Also I find on a lot of other message boards and internet forums that the gamers who aren't interested and don't like R* produced games are the gamers who are more fans of RPG's, MMO games lile Elder Scrolls, Fallout games, or Final Fantasy games.As for Max Payne 3 yeah I see where some gamers are really on the fence about purchasing the game.It's been 8 years since Max Payne 2 came out and the first 2 games were on a different console generation.Also a lot people don't realize and know that Remedy games was responsible for producing Max Payne 1 & 2 not R* games. Take 2 which is the parent company for R* games just published the first 2 Max Payne games. Also when comparing R* produced games people automatically assume that it's being produced by the same people behind the GTA series which is R* North which is false.The fact is Take 2 is the parent company and R* has a bunch of different teams & studios that produce their games.Max Payne 3 is being produced by R* Vancouver.Just giving some info and my 2 cents. And no people I don't work for or in any way affiliated with R* games or Take 2 interactive.
ive played the multiplayer. it always depends on what the player likes. i hate sitting behind cover waiting for somthing to happen. the single payer is great and the multiplayer is fun and does have tactics like the more stuff you put on your class the slower you are and the less stamina you will have to do things like sprinting and rolling as well as slowe health regen. there is a lot of runnig and gunning but i love that because it makes things a whole lot more fun than just sitting in a corner and if you do like to camp than the super easy to use snipers are great for people that like to sit in a corner. ther are very little maps but the dlc should change that.
