Not liking the text on screen, feels clunky and redundant when they've already said it. If this is how they're "evolving" the graphic novels, pfft. Not a fan of the story stuff I've seen so far.

Other than that, seamless transitions from cutscenes to gameplay is really cool. Rest of the game looks solid.

Same opinion here.
The game reminds me of Die Hard, as if Max Payne is John Mclane, bald version, which is badass version lol.

Anyways, I am quite interested in the game, looks nice.

Agree about the text stuff. Gunplay looks to be incredibly visceral, thats all I care about.

I was never really a fan of the comic style transitions of the old games actually. I like this better.

I won't say anything about the gameplay, but Max's lines are painfully uninspired and the on-screen text only makes it more ridiculous.

The text is meh, but I like everything else.

What ever about the on-screen-text, dialog or even narrative, this game looks be a real blast to play!

I love how the cut-scenes are blended seamlessly with the gameplay.

After playing uncharted games, characters really need to start looking better.

That scene in the bar with Max and the three jackasses isn't going to end well!

No they don't. Not when you've got a game world and an engine capable of so much more than any game in the Uncharted series. R*'s engine was designed for a non-linear sandbox which depends more on gameplay rather than pretty cut-scenes. I'll take that approach the majority of times. You can just tell the gunplay is going to be head and shoulders above anything else out there from a 3rd person perspective.

I personally think R* are the best developers in the business. I also think their RAGE engine is up there with the best in the industry. They are always looking to push the technology in this gen, and that engine allows them to do it. Each time they add a new feature, it impresses.

    GriftGFX It's a well sculpted package when it comes to character design and art direction in general. The map treatments remind me of fighters too with their elaborate themes that are tied to characters. (10 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX It's definitely in the spirit of fighters. I think there's a heavy western influence in OW's art direction too is all. (10 Hours ago)
