I'd rather they try something new than ust do the same again. Even if it isn't the same game as the last two, they shouldn't be afraid of doing something new with the franchise. I don't know if anyone would agree but Splinter Cell Conviction was, in my opinion, awesome. So different from the other SC games but I'm more addicted to Conviction than I was to any of the others

I expect it to be a good game, but I'm not going to say I feel certain it will live up to the standard of the first two games (almost no games do in my opinion). Max Payne was my favorite series last gen, so I am exited to see a return of it, but obviously I had some concerns when the first bit of info came out about where the series was headed. It's definitely unexpected, but I take some comfort in the fact that Rockstar are not known for *bleep*ing up. They were also quite involved in the making of the first two games, so it's not like it's been handed to a team that has no idea what they're doing. Would I feel a bit better if Lake was writing it? Yes. Still though, I am looking forward to seeing what they do.

I anticipate this so much but too dread that it really won't be a genuine sequel in the Max Payne series. With Remedy and Sam Lake off the books (and making the personally fantastic Alan Wake instead), pretty much constantly since news has been coming out this has looked to be going in the direction of a Rockstar mammoth hit and abandoning the characteristics that defined it. This is meant to be noir, and it's set in Brazil in the blazing sun? There's no symbolism, no style.
Sure, Rockstar have tried to back-trail a bit by ignoring the god-awful bald head and suggesting that a portion will be traditional Max Payne, but does that make up for it?
How do you guys feel?
