I just saw something... terrible.
I'm not a huge Max Payne fan, I have played the first two games, and I can understand that a third game in developement is a huuuge thing among it's fans... but, this....this is...awful!
I'm not judging the company, I'm not judging the people that are working on Max Payne 3... but this...

Well, for those of you who don't know the character, here are a few quick links to what he looks like, and what type of atmosphere the first games have:

From the movie (which I didn't see, so no opinion there, just check out the "mood"):

Okay, you still with me? Good. Now, check out Max Payne 3, the newest game of the series. I shall leave the opinions up to you...

...imagine if this would've happened to TMI. It's just...sad... and I'm not even a fan. :(

  • While I agree that Max Payne 3 doesn't look like the first two at all and wonder why they even call it a sequel, I would like to point out that a) that doesn't mean it is going to be bad, and b) there is actually a general forums so there really isn't a reason for this to be posted in the MI section.
  • Oh....oh...general forum...right...
    sorry, I totally forgot about that. Ummm, should I delete it now or... ?
  • MI's a sequel too, though I hope it's not gonna be as disappointing as the new MP seems to be. Judging by the preview, at least it's no Simon the Sorcerer 2 sequel (I dare not write down the title).
  • Can't really pass judgement until I've played the game.
  • Character and loaction changes can be a good thing, I for one am pretty fed up with Neo esque characters. If you keep a character looking exactly the same over the course of more than 3 games, people will get bored (some counter examples would be mario, samus, etc, however these can be continued being that they aren't strongly based off of another character). Just look at Sam Fisher of splinter cell, he changed, and it worked.
