When MP3 was originally announced, I wasn't all that happy with it. It sounded like Rockstar was going to change some of the core aspects of the game, for no reason other than "because we can." A cover system, a main character that looked nothing like Max, and a setting more suited to Far Cry 2 than to a gritty noir drama.
But now that I've seen some footage and heard a little more about what they're trying to do with the game, I'm feeling a bit more convinced. The gameplay I've seen looks very much like that of the original 2 games, and it seems like it will be tying in the new setting with flashbacks to the rainy streets and leather jackets that we all know.
I know that there were a lot of people that felt the same as me when the game was announced. I was wondering if you too feel differently now?
If you don't mind me asking, what footage did you see and what did you hear about the game that made you change your mind? Everything I've read and seen makes it look like they are changing it from being a Max Payne game to a piece of crap modern shooter. He doesn't even look like Max Payne.
