Former developer says Max Payne 3 is ‘f***ing brilliant’Posted 10:27 am on Monday, April 9th, 2012 by John 'Spartan' Nguyen
For those afraid that Max Payne 3 won’t be as good as the previous 2 because the original developing studio, Remedy Entertainment, isn’t working on the game, maybe this will put you at ease. Remedy CEO Matias Myllyrinne has gone to really praise the game. The former developer has on a couple of occasions consulted Rockstar.
“It’s f***ing brilliant, ” said Myllyrinne. “I’ve had a chance to play it and we’ve worked with Rockstar a little bit – obviously, they’re doing the heavy lifting. They’re doing the development. But they wanted our input on a couple of occasions and we’ve had loads of our people, our core group, who worked on the first two games, give input and it’s awesome.”
As a fan, I’ve been anticipating a new adventure with our antihero since Max Payne 2 came out in 2003. The first game is one of my all-time favorite video games, and I’m pretty excited to see if Rockstar can take the game to the next level.
“Those guys, they just don’t put out bad games. And so, in that respect, it’s very – it’s almost like the best position to be in. It’s like somebody’s making a great game and you just get to give them input, and it’s already brilliant so I’ve enjoyed it,” said Myllyrinne. “I can’t obviously – I don’t want to give any spoilers and can’t give out any spoilers, but it’s a testament to their attention to detail and it’s a testament to their passion and dedication. It’ll be worth the wait.”
Max Payne 3 will be available on May 15, 2012. Yeah, after the release of Mass Effect 3, I’m eagerly awaiting the next AAA game to hit the video game market.
