@Kryptonbornson @Foxhound1982 - " If I never played the originals, who knows what I would have thought of it. Heck, had I not played Alan Wake, seen more noir movies with good dialog, or seen the Matrix or any good John Woo flicks like it, who knows. I might have liked MP3."I did all of those and still loved Max Payne 3. It was true to its roots in most ways that count, and original enough not to be called a rehash. The only major gripe I had was lack of better cover-shoot and action elements a-la Uncharted. Oh and the multiplayer sucked..
