Ships Ahoy - Max Payne 3

Rockstar announces that the Windows edition of Max Payne 3 is now available, offering the latest installment in this noir-inspired third-person shooter sequel. Here's word:

To celebrate the international launch of Max Payne 3 for PC, check out the new Official PC Launch Trailer, comprised entirely of footage from the PC version.

Developed in parallel with the game's console versions, the PC version of Max Payne 3 supports a number of advanced graphics options, scalable high-resolution textures and character models, DirectX11 features, multi-monitor support and 3D.

Featuring cutting edge shooting mechanics for precision gunplay, advanced new Bullet Time® and Shootdodge™ effects, full integration of Natural Motion's Euphoria® Character Behavior system for lifelike movement and a dark and twisted story, Max Payne 3 is a seamless, highly detailed, cinematic experience.

I think I figured out what I don't like about the cut scenes. It's not really the frequency or length that's the problem, it's that they usually end by dropping you into the middle of a firefight. Unlike in previous games, there's no option to approach a room full of bad guys, assess the situation and come up with a plan of attack, which was kind of the fun part... like: I'm gonna dive through the door, take out the guys to the left, roll behind that table and then dive out backwards while gunning down the rest of the guys. Instead it's, "oh fuck, I'm suddenly in the middle of a room with an unknown layout and a bunch of guys shooting at me, better just dive around randomly like an idiot trying to get headshots."

Granted, that's not always the case, but it does often eliminate one aspect of the fun. I did just, however, read on a board that in the 360 version you can pause the game and pan the camera around. I haven't tried to do anything like that in the PC version, and that could be a barely adequate substitute.

All this really is nitpicking though, and I'm glad that I'm analyzing suboptimal, fairly minor, aspects of gameplay rather than glaringly obvious implementation flaws or giant design failures.

Really, I think it's pretty damn good and I'm quite enjoying it. Anyone tried "Arcade Mode" yet and know what that is? I figured I'd leave that for after the story mode, but if it's something like small levels with endless waves of badguys, that could actually be pretty cool.
