Quick Shots: Max Payne 3 screens rock the beard and a wounded expression

Tuesday, 10th May 2011 17:00 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Rockstar has put out four screenshots for Max Payne 3, and we’ve posted them below for you.

Each comes way of PC Gamer, who has the rest of the lot posted from April 23 on the site as well which were originally exclusive to Edge.

Max Payne 3 will be released on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. There’s no date though as of yet, unfortunately. Here’s hoping there’s one provided at E3.

    Am I the only one who thinks that in terms of the graphics quality, the screens doesn’t show anything… good?

    @2, Standard Rockstar quality.

    Well these aren’t shots of anything, they all seem to be CG and not the actual game.

    This is actually first linear and not open world from Rockstar game?

    Impressively detailed open worlds are Rockstar’s high point, not art direction. That’s the way it’s always been. Though admittedly they could do with a little more art direction to make them more visually appealing, but to be honest with you, I don’t think that the vast majority of gamers would care.

    So for them it’d just be a waste of money. It’s better for them to concentrate on details rather than looks.

    I’m not sure if Max Payne 3 will be open world, at least I never heard about it.

    Just like the previous ones, MP3 looks like a nicely directed piece of movie-like thingy, which will suffer from graphics in many cut-scenes. I mean, come on – close-ups on Max’s arm, which looks like a big piece of ham?

    I am absolutely not describing the overall quality of the game by the looks, but… Really. It’s 2011. Maybe I’ve been spoiled too much by recent games.

    Look at the hair on his arms.

    This is what Next Gen is all about people!

    So they ditched the fat balding thing?
    good good.

    edit: whoooa, look at his arm in screenshot 2.
    surely it’s not meant to look like that?

    ^ From what i understand we’ll see him pass by multiple stages throughout the game, the bald (fat?) one being one of them.

    @9: No, they didn’t ditch it. He will become bald and fat later on.
