Wow, over six minutes and they can't show any new gameplay? I think there was maybe one clip. I especially liked the part where they started playing them over again at the end. I'm so freaking excited for this game! I want more gameplay footage! AAARRRGH!!!

Don't judge a book by its cover , the same can be said about Max Payne 3 ( and i mean that in a good way ) .

I am just hoping that they realy try hard on this game cause it's the best game a game like (MAX PAYNE 2) when it's released at 2003 and there are games at 2005 & 2006 didn't even get as close as (MAN PAYNE 2) I just hope this game will be a good game and still be a good game for upcomin 2 years or even 3 i am just hoping

05:48 it looks like max only has one arm! also i'm glad they still have him in a trenchcoat! if they didn't then everyone wouldn't buy it because what makes a game more noir-ish than a trenchcoat! really!!!!!!

All this guys is appretaiting is his engine, development, engenering and design. It looks like he's just not interested in Max Payne. Is it because its "not an original" Rockstar concept? Grow up big guy, you need to accept Max Payne is a legend.

This is Rockstar ...so im not seeing a disaster.. But i really really hope they don't fall shot of what the name Max payne says to people.

I'm a little bit skeptical about this one to be honest. The gameplay looks great (although it did look a bit stupid with him running from side to side lol) but the setting isn't as good. When I watched that video, when he was in an office and in NYC on top of the buildings in the snowy settings, it looked amazing. But when he was outside in the sunny area being all bald all I could think of was MW2's campaign. Don't get me wrong I will try this game out and won't judge it until I have actually played the game. I just think if they kept the original setting from the old games it would have been far more interesting to be honest. BUT then again, if it was all snowy NYC, most likely you would find people complaining "It's just Max Payne 1 and 2 but with updated graphics!!" lol.

it seems there's no major gameplay changed from 8 years Max Payne i was expecting more but its not or its just me?

Maybe it's just me, but listening to interviews with game developers, alternative music artists or twenty-something actors makes me want to drill a hole in my head to let the boredom out. Looks like a great game, though.

WTF with the hawaiian shirt? We don't wear this kind of thing here in Brazil, when we see such thing its like... "Gotta be a foreigner ¬¬", it reminds me of the thugs from MW2 wearing green beret, Aviator sunglasses and the hawaiian shirt I really think they should do a research about the place to avoid this... please... NO HAWAIIAN SHIRT!!

This R* guy has the best job in the World! Fairly sure he worked on RDR, and now MP3, and he'll probably do GTA 5 as well - blessed. Gamers have to get used to the fact that their fav games have to progress. NYC would've been good but Brazil will be much better, imo. Brazil is noir central, if you think about it.

I really hope they don't mess this up. I can't STAND the fact that they made him bald and Brazil is not Noir at all but I think they are trying to minimize those elements because they know a lot of us hate them. Please keep the comic strip story and focus on the story aspect as much as the shooting! Come on Rockstar.

@grim0187- Lol, I remember that too but it was only for the first game- and they even parodied it in the 2nd game on one of the TV shows that you got to listen to every now and now. Which makes me wonder if something similar will be implemented in this game. "The flesh of fallen angels."

If this game sells well then Bully 2 is a distinct possibility. So buy this game!
