@ Amauris96 they ruined the story ,thats what they did, u know that and i see u agree with me, and in Max Payne 3 pictures i don't see any darkness or any kind of similitude with Max Payne 1 or 2,the completely ruined the story, doesn't look like max payne at all, enjoy your wait..

Pfff that director for max payne's a bloody idiot no wonder I didn't like the movie... Oh well at least max payne on the silver screen was a little better then hitman was.

@javisinota I hope you're happy, with soo many people complaining about the game, they delayed the damn game. I would of atleast would like to play a NEW title for Max Payne, i'm sure they'd come up with a way to have the sadness/darkness flow go on. I miss the game that invented Slow Motion Shooting gameplay, and bullet diving across rooms to kill 4 people in a stylistic kill. I hate any other game that tries to compete with Max Payne, like Stranglehold, Dead To Rights, and Alpha Protocal. But now I can't even play a third title to the Max Payne series because of you complaining people.

I hope this game is long. All the games that come out today are too short. I hope it's brutal and satisfying letting off rounds into thugs. I hope i can paint up enemies with red in this new one though. The last 2 maxpayne titles had NO Bullet wounds in the enemies you shot. Still great games though. Max Payne 3 should be the best.

Honestly, I loved Max payne movie, it had the story of the Games (both of em) , so it was nicely executed, ofcourse to people who haven't played the game it won't be as good, but loved the movie.

I think Max Payne was a good movie how does everyone think its so terrible. The story was aqurite, the characters from the game. there was even some dives by Max including that shotgun kill. I liked that movie u guys are all just prone to hate eh

MAX looks a lot like Fisher at double agent after his doughter died...

Max Payne the movie was messed up by a director that didn't know the game and a script that wasn't true to the movie. Just listen to him talk about the movie. Just some garbage that sounds too artsy. I know for a fact could have written a better movie. Damn them all...

Max Payne looks more like what Sam Fisher should look like as an old man. Conviction looks like Sam actually got a little younger....

well guys, u really ruined the story, max payne was about a man in the darkness, going tru dark places, desolate streets and places and now this game looks like he is Colombia fighting against narcotics traffickers, which has nothing to do with the real story of the max payne 1 and 2. Its a shame that the game doesn't continue like it was supposed to

The first 2 Max Payne games were frikking awesome. The movie sucked big time and it didn't make any effort to keep the max payne story true. I'm really excited for this third game, trust me, it will be great.

BloodOfSin you seem short sighted i mean max payne games are classics, the acid trips as you call them were there to show more texture to max payne character,he drank got drunk smoked cigerettes etc and had nightmares! more human emotions and after all his wife and baby were murdered by junkies, if you take away shadow people and odd cults (junkies and hoes) aint you taking away the soul of the story? (a cliche film prehaps, but in gaming this considered very fresh!) This isnt ment to be a hollywood type game, happy ending tosh,gritty junkies deffing out etc around certain parts of the game, and the intrigue is the darkness and sorrow of max paynes quest and actual survirual through a dark night or 2, a compelling story for a game i would say, to this gaming markert esp back in the early 20001 to 2003 years (first 2 games) and so on, actions great but there more to those games, the depth factor was the characters and story, not constant shooting. and yes matrix bullet timing elements was also cutting edge in terms of gaming innovation

More action and less crazy shadow people odd cults, and acid trips that make no sense to the over-all story and Max Payne might have been good.... Personally I expect an action movie when I think of Max Payne, yes it has a cool story and some crazy acid trips but action was its main focus IMO....

Max payne was a pretty good movie. Granted the director could have done a better job in keeping true with the game but it's still pretty good.

The director of Max Payne acts like he actually made a good movie, and the critics just hate all video game movies. The case is that Max Payne sucked and made no sense at all.
