Posted on January 18 2012, 12:00pm | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

The second installment in our Max Payne 3 Design and Technology Video Series showcases how we've set out to reimagine the gunplay mechanics of the third person action shooter.

With a precision targeting system that's reflective of a first person game and lifelike weapon animation design, Max Payne 3 creates an unparalleled level of immersion and cinematic realism. See for yourself now by watching the clip above, which is also available in high-definition at and the Rockstar Games site Videos section.

        The videos for this game so far look fantastic. I'm not familiar at all with the Max Payne series but R* is selling me onto the series. But I am appreciating what i'm seeing of this game on the technical level. The advancements they are making with RAGE and Euphoria are incredible. The GTAIV to RDR technical advancement was absolutely incredible and the RDR to MP3 advancement is just as incredible if not more, which is understandable as MP3 is not a sandbox so the graphics and programming can be more focused and precise or so I think. I really hope R* can make this 3rd person shooter handle like a 1st. A game thats comes to mind that handles really well for a 3rd person shooter is the Gears of War series, very fluid controls and no auto aim whatsoever. My biggest gripe with playing RDR w/o auto-aim is the mechanic itself, it feels very clunky, almost unnatural, and too slow even with sensitivy all the way up. Hopefully R* improves this with Max Payne and incorporates that improvement into GTAV, set in sunny SoCal. Thanks R* for setting GTAV in my home state!

                  Max Payne looks better with a skinhead than with hair just my opinion.

                              This video is very awesome! Got me so pumped for Max Payne 3 that I've went and replayed the previous two games. Any ideas when the Next Gameplay Series video will be released?
