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 Yeah they just need to actually implement some of that stuff. They're charting an interesting path. I feel like they showed this game off before they knew what it was. (10 Hours ago)

    Tiz For instance, in Destiny, the whole point of getting loot is to get better equipped to do raids for better equipment to do raids for better equipment and sometimes Iron Banner. (10 Hours ago)

    Tiz @GriftGFX: It really depends how they approach it. If you can upgrade your ship, crew etc to navigate more dangerous parts of the sea then it will be a dangling carrot scenario. (10 Hours ago)

    Tiz Also, like the Division you have to cash in the loot before people steal it for themselves. The Division ran into the problem of just allowing anyone in the instances. (10 Hours ago)
