Today, Rockstar tweeted about two brand new screenshots for Max Payne 3. Normally, this wouldn’t be that big a deal but Rockstar hasn’t even really mentioned Max Payne 3 since 2009 when they released some screenshots and a fact sheet. They didn’t even mention it in there roadmap released earlier this year. People were okay with the story and the new setting but people’s reaction to Max Payne’s new look was almost all negative. Rockstar’s rationale was that a lot of time had passed since the last game and Max was a different man and his appearance was just a further reinforcement of that. Gone was his smooth NY style swag, replaced by a bald and fat man who looked like a mere shell of his former self.
Personally, I didn’t have a problem with his new look and the rationale to me was understandable but it was apparently enough for Rockstar to basically shelve the game for almost two whole years until today. Anyway, check out the two new screens and let us know what you think? Are you excited about the new Max Payne, what do you think of his look?
