Looking forward to renting this one. Sniper elite has my money for the month of may tho, gives me my bullet time fix is a slightly less generic package.

Shooting nazis in the nuts never gets old.

I'll be getting both games, MP 3 for PC costs 45 dollars here in Brazil \o/

I REALLY want to play this......but as I keep saying why may 15th?!!! Basically relegates it to playing at some time eventually rather than at launch :(

The gameplay looks pretty good, might need to get this one...
I hope the story has some depth to it.

Looks great.

But lets not bullshit ourselves Rockstar, bullet time has always been nothing more than "easy mode". Sacrificing difficulty for stylish aw.

lets hope this gunplay makes it into gta5

It looks great, but how is this different than Stranglehold? What is new to the table?

Stunning! This is what a 3P shooter should be! Can't believe how good this is looking. I'm glad some developers focus more on physics and gameplay than shiny graphics. I will be buying both this AND sniper elite. What a month, can't wait!!!
Commented on 2012-04-13 01:28:07
It's Payne!! I can't wait.

I've been fairly sceptical up until now, but this video was awesome. Man, the gameplay is ultra slick and stylish - definitely in keeping with the Max Payne style.

I still have concerns about the depth of the story and the quality of the narrative/presentation, but I can't fault the gameplay at all.
Commented on 2012-04-13 08:15:31
Amazing! The weight of the body and like the shotgun ammo penetrates enemy, thats soooo awesome.

Perhaps you heard of a small title called Diablo 3?

I think you mean: sacrificing difficulty for AWESOME.

The Max Payne series brought it to the table in the first place... and Rockstar have absolutely perfected it.

I didn't use bullet time very much in the previous games, and there were a lot of places I probably "should" have.
(Replayed a lot of spots trying different approaches as well.)

It was built with the function in mind, after all.
Commented on 2012-04-14 08:11:24
I liked how it worked in MP2.. had a bit more depth than the first game. This looks great. I'm also going to push it aside for the Diablo 3 launch though. Sorry R*. It's just bad timing.

I don't think there is as much crossover between the two audiences that is being made of.

    GriftGFX @Megido: Is it really a single game or is this a shift in MGS? (1 Hour ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane Loads of people are preordering the game. I just hope they realise that the free PC version only comes with the digital pre-order unless they want Alan Wake and its DLC for free. (1 Hour ago)

    alimokrane The funny thing is the game jumped from outside the top 100 to number 11 on Amazon UK best selling games following the announcement!!! (1 Hour ago)

    jmd749 I bought a Wii to play Mario Galaxy, if it was then announced for a PC release, I would have been pissed.lol (1 Hour ago)
  • Megido
    Megido If your entire purchase on hardware hinges on a single game that isn't even close to release yet you kinda disqualified yourself from smart decision making anyway. Keep the butthurt flowing. (1 Hour ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane I don't understand these people truly, it's not like the game was released on the competing device I. E. PS4. (1 Hour ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane Instead he cancelled his preorders but still kept the console. If he truly was mislead, he should sell the console all together but he still sees value in it. (1 Hour ago)
