it looks pretty good, but it looks very different... it seems more like a new IP than a sequel.
The GI article says "Max hits rock bottom in Sao Paulo (Brazil), a city he moved to in order to escape from the demons of his life in New York. Through some somewhat disreputable connections, he's taken work in the "private security" sector for one of Sao Paulo wealthiest families. While on the job he is drawn into the dark underworld of SP and become involved in a series of events that could cost him the last thing he has left: his life."
Remedy did the first two games for PC, which were awesome. Rockstar was involved since the beginning but only did the PS2 ports. I loved MP, but unlike some of you, I really enjoyed MP2 as well. This shit is, undeniably, is going to be different. I mean, Rockstar is fully taking over here. They have the rights and the story and are making the third (and final?) act in the MP series, but even they admit that apart from the name, you probably wouldn't know it was Max Payne anymore because they have changed his character model so much. But then again, it HAS been, what, close to a decade since the first game was released? So living through all he lived through in the first two games and adding about 12 years of canonical time, you're gonna see a different man.
I have hopes for this title. Maybe not high hopes, but hopes nonetheless. Either way, it can't be any worse than the movie.
