Max Payne has returned to the video game world once again. He looks a little worse for wear this time around. But he's still angry and on a destructive path. The big question is was it worth all these years for the wait, is the game better than 1 or 2? Have the game play mechanics changed? Should gamers try to pick this up for $20 or less?
"Friday the 13th is the day you’re most likely to get struck by lightning, run over by an ambulance and stabbed in the face by a bad tempered fella with a hockey mask, so why not do yourself a favor and remain indoors with our top five list of the unluckiest characters in gaming history."
"Bullet-time has become a staple of action video games over the past ten years, and a lot of thanks can go to the sci-fi blockbuster, the Matrix. The art of slowing down time in order to act faster, or respond more precisely, has slipped it’s way into a number of our favourite games, and we’re here to pay homage to these time-bending experiences."
"Rockstar’s Max Payne 3 hype train has started rolling, and with the release of brand new screenshots, I have to say I’m quite skeptical. Not only has Max gone from gritty, dark-haired antihero with a dark past to a baldie with more baggage than LAX, but the game mirrors 90% of every other third-person venture we’ve been given in the past couple years.

"2001 was a pioneering year for video games. Nintendo released its GameCube console, and Microsoft entered the video game market with the Xbox. Meanwhile, the PlayStation 2 continued to dominate the market while Sega announced that they would be pulling out of the console business, killing support for the Dreamcast to focus on software. On the handheld front, Nintendo released their Game Boy Advance.
Before the Dreamcast went away, though, it did see a few milestones. 800,000 people found ..."
"Theyve thrown up some new pictures from Octobers upcoming Max Payne movie and - I hate to say it - Im excited. Not by the photos, God no, they are bland action film shots that dont have an impact on me at all. But this has been talked about for so long, not happened so many times, that this just makes me realise it is actually happening."
The sequel to what game is still unknown which will result us people to execute the process of speculation. During the Take Two conference last night, it's been revealed that Rockstar is planning on releasing a major sequel in 2009. Don't count the downloadable content for GTA IV because that's being released sometime this year. Someone could only wonder what game sequel this could be for? Midnight Club? Manhunt 3?
