Max Payne 3 Trailer

Rockstar's Max Payne 3 Page now offers the promised first trailer from Max Payne 3, featuring a cinematic look at Max's fast motion descent from slow motion cop to the sloppy world-weary Max we've seen in previous teasers for the upcoming third-person shooter sequel.

At least initially, it does not feel like Max Payne.

Or rather, it comes off like the most basic, crude remake of him. Get a guy with a gun, have it go slow, and have him talk a lot. Yes, that is some of the basic structure of the game, but it is all about the setting and how the mechanics are used. It is like saying every FPS is the same because they are typically about some dude with a gun.

I will have to see how it plays, but this seems more like a reimagined MP than MP3. Sadly, though not unexpected, f*ck Mona apparently. Otherwise, the setting has always bugged me a bit - why is Max here and why does he care about any of these people?

If it plays well, at least it will be an alternative action game. But without the history, setting, flawed introspection, tight gun play, and heavy emoness noir, it just will not be the same. I am not interested in some dude protecting drug dealers.
He looks way too aged as well.
Hoping there will be some big story/gameplay twist that makes up for this,
Ray
