I enjoyed MP3 thought it was a good game. I know some thought the game was lacking.

It's not so much that it was lacking. Lengthwise it was pretty good, the story was decent, the action is balls-to-the-walls Max Payne, and it's a genuinely difficult game, especially at Hard.

It's just that the game NEVER.EVER.EVER.STOPS interrupting you every 10 seconds with a fucking cutscene. Empty hallway? Cutscene of Max walking through the empty hallway. Door? Cutscene of Max opening the door. Group of baddies in a room? Cutscene of Max WALKING INTO THE FUCKING ROOM with his dick out and going "HIYA FELLAS! WHY YOU SHOOT AT MAX?!"

Ugh. I hate games that take away your control constantly. At one point you're in this bar in this shitty favela, talking to some dude, and you see four bad guys come in.

Cutscene unfolds of Max trying his best to make the bad guys leave him alone, which, surprise surprise, doesn't work. Queue you being given control while a baddie with a sawed-off shotgun fires at you. You have approximately 0.5 seconds to initiate a shootdodge or you're dead. And even then you're in bad shit because it's a small bar and the bad guys don't fuck around.

Why couldn't this simply unfold in-game? So if I want to see the 'cutscene', it acts out in-game, but at any one point I can choose to just open fire. Because I would have opened fire the second those bad guys walked in the door.

NOOOOPE.

Fuck. I tried to replay it a few months ago, stopped after about half an hour and my 30th cutscene.

It's a good GAME, when it allows you to play it. Sadly, that's only for about 20% of the entire time you'll spend in it.
