AusGamers was recently invited out to Rockstar Sydney HQ to get hands-on with Max Payne 3 on Xbox 360 (we'll be looking at PC soon).
We played through two missions of the game and had a look at Rockstar's new narrative structure in-place, all while eating up its impressive presentation. And, like our hands-off demo, we walked away with a sense of nostalgia and hope. The team have done a bang-up job keeping all the things in place that make a Max Payne game just that, but have also added plenty in the way of modernised gameplay to make the whole experience feel fresh and new.

Hmmmm. Not a fan of cover. I'll happily use the corners of walls but please no GOW style hiding behind waist high walls every few metres.

I won't hold my breath with any of that though with what happen to deus ex 3.. i don't hold much hope for many games these day's.

Cover adds another element of strategy to the game, and also means that you aren't just standing around while bullets and being projected your way. I think it actually works really well, but bullet time will always be the centre piece of this game.
