Some dude at Gamestop talked me into pre-ordering Max Payne 3 the other day. I hadn't played either of the first two, which were released in 2001, and 2003 and were notable for it's use of "Bullet Time" (think The Matrix when Neo starts dodging bullets in slo-mo). But when the guy suggested it I knew I wanted it for some reason. Then I remembered this trailer I saw a few weeks ago:
OH YEAH! It reminds me a lot of the Dead Eye targeting system from Red Dead Redemption, which is no surprise since both games are made by Rockstar Games, another one you may have heard of called GRAND THEFT AUTO.
For those of you who are under the impression that Max Payne sucks because you saw that shitty Mark Wahlberg movie, don't be discouraged and keep an eye out for my opinion on the game sometime after I get it on May 15th
