New previews of the upcoming shooter Max Payne have been posted recently, giving nice looks at this 3rd person title from 3D Realms. The Action Vault has summarized their E3 experiences with the title into a nice look at the game which covers the graphics, plot, environments, and more. If you're wondering just what this newly announced title is all about, give it a read. The new Mac gaming site FragMac has opened their doors with their first preview covering the title, so be sure to check that one out as well.
Those that like all their screenshots in one place are in luck, as Blue's News has noted the posting of a mix of both old and new shots of Max Payne at Daily Telefrag.
For those that have yet to discover this title, Max Payne is an upcoming 3rd person shooter that has its inspirational roots buried deep in John Woo style Hong Kong action flicks as well as The Matrix. To wit, people run around with pistols in each hand, blowing each other away. There's even a mode called "Bullet Time," in which a player can slow down the action in order to better react in dangerous situations.
The screenshots show off yet more of Max Payne's graphical goodness, with one shot showing Max ducking under a fired bullet. As an added bonus, a shot of the Remedy employee that was the inspiration for Max Payne's look is also featured.
