Remedy developed the previous 2 games, then sold the franchise to T2, who passed development (MP3) to rockstar..
The only thing i didnt like about MP2 was that it was as sweet as it was short, but the improvements over the original were very impressive (the physics are top notch).
Anyone actually believed that Rockstar would make a good PC game version and release a level editor? HA! .
Its all about the money..
Not the Max Payne I know. He was neither a brute or a especially mean machine macho type of guy, as they make him in these old screenshots.
It looks to me like this title is hanging out at the same corner as "Operation Flashpoint": Dragon Rising. Even if it is Rockstar which develops the game.

What colossus said.
He'll never be the same again. It'll be like Rainbow Six, Ghost Recon, Deus Ex, Red Faction, etc, etc...
...play the first one (or two or three), and pretend the latest "iteration" doesn't exist.
Everyone tempted to post another inane/useless/whogivesatoss topic in the A3 forum - here.
I know its too early to judge, but cmon, Max is supposed to be a sad guy, looking for vengeance lurking in a dark, cold New York, not some kind of Bruce Willis gansta, fighting under the sun against boss "Felipe Da Silva Ribeiro Do Nascimento Gomez Ecc Ecc" only because Rockstar needs money.
And yes, I dont want to like this game!
The developers should have, at least, visited São Paulo. Definitively, that's not the São Paulo I know and lived in.
Meh... I did not see any gameplay fotage yet so I will hold off on my judgement.
This game has nothing to do with Max Payne.
Rockstar did a generic console cover shooter #129 and then they needed the name to do sales++ and suddenly it became Max Payne 3.
I bet if it was called by any other name nobody would be able to tell the difference
ArmA2: "Doc, I'm wounded, I can barely aim and I'm bleeding badly, come on pull my body out of the harm's way and treat me before I die!"
ArmA3: "You are wounded! Click to instantly regenerate health whenever you feel like it!"
Giving 'authenticity' an entirely new meaning, together with Medal of Honor.
Another thing I dont like is the reason why Max is there:
he became a private guard in a completely new Country and leaves the past behind ecc ecc bla bla..
I mean, seriously the "Became a private guard" is one of the most generic, foresee-able things you can think of.
It would fit in every story in this world!
-After all his adventures were over, Duke Nukem decides to became a private security guard--> totally unrelated sequel using famous IP.
-Gordon Freeman decides that he had enough of all the vortigaunts and G-Man so he becames a private security guard--> totally unrelated sequel using famous IP.
-Spiderman decides that he had enough of all the crazy bad guys in New York so he becames a private security guard--> totally unrelated sequel using famous IP.
-Luke Skywalker decides that he had enough of all the Jedi stuff and going to work to Yavin 4 so he becames a private security guard--> totally unrelated sequel using famous IP.
Hell, it would work even with a farmer!
-A farmer decides that he had enough cow-milking in his life so he becames a private security guard in São Paulo, leaving all his cows and dark past behind.
