After over a year, this is my first post in the games section on this blog. Once I got to know about it, I just couldn’t wait to write a post on it, and why wouldn’t I? Max Payne has been one of my favorite series of all times. The story line…the special effects… the characters…the dialogs… and boy…that background violin music that sends chills down my spine every time it plays in the game, everything about this game has always excited me. And when I came to know that there would be a third installment to the blockbuster series… my excitement level blew the roofs off!
This update about the game is THE major one since when the game was announced. The first trailer of the game was released by Rockstar Games just yesterday(14th Sept 2011). Going by what can be grabbed from the trailer, things have changed a lot in the world of Max Payne. Max is no longer a cop, or maybe he is just done being one. You can find him saying “I ain’t no cop no more” in the trailer. He moves to Sao Paolo, Brazil and is jobless. Later he is appointed as a protection agent for certain high-profile people in the God forbidden city. Somehow, this time again, Max ends up trying to protect another girl…and by the looks of it, it doesn’t seem that things work out quite the way that were supposed to.
The trailer is intense. The action and the drama seem to have doubled this time. The slow mo, bullet time effects prevail…well that is quite obvious as those were the features that made the game stand out, and off course, the narration by Max and his intense voice that plays a key role in keeping the mood of the game going. Just thinking about these things itself brings back the old days of Max Payne 1 and 2. Though, the major difference that can be noted is his looks. The handsome cop suddenly going bald was a subject of concern among the fans, but the reason for his newly found avatar has been explained in the trailer itself! I guess it would be better to watch the trailer here than letting me kill the fun of y’all actually watching all the action happening! So, here it is…
So? Any thoughts?
