    Loved the first two Max Paynes. Hopefully this one will keep up the tradition.

    Same as the others... first two were great, can't wait for this one. I hope to see the same level of attention to detail with regards to visuals and mechanics as there were in the first two.

    The original was one of the best games for story ever made, in my opinion. I read somewhere that Max 3 won't have the guy who did Max's voice in the original and the second...which is a shame.

    the story of the first 2 got me so pumped up for the third ... but then they took 10 years

    Why couldn't Rockstar have bought the rights to Hitman, ensure that David Bateson would be re-hired, and make THAT franchise worthy of some real attention.

    As it stands, I'm more interested in Max Payne now than I ever was in SA and all of that. I still love SA and Contracts -- but the rest of the series have gone down-hill -- Blood Money was okay -- but I wanted for Bateson to reprise his role.

    Ah well. You can't win them all, I guess. For me, this means that I won't win anything anymore. I stopped playing video games this year, after getting through Liberty City Stories in about 72 hours total, and learnng that Eidos had sent Bateson packing.

    Have fun, and let us all know if it's worth it to continue playing these types of games -- especially with the release of MP3.

    And to clarify my last comment -- Bateson WAS in Blood Money. His acting was stellar as always. It was the story that I hated. And the new one -- Absolution? Don't even get me started.

  10. I hope they manage to bring back the original voice at least. I heard there was going to be a new guy doing his voice.
