Changes you would make to Max Payne 3?
Lets say your the executive director( Or creative director, whichever position would give you the power necessary, etc.) At Rockstar Games, and you have just been brought the finished result of Max Payne 3 about six months before release.

What would you change?

Where do I start? Less cutscenes, etc. I felt like I was watching a mini series, instead of playing a game. Also, making the keyboard layout more accessible;In the first Max Payne Game, and The second, Bullet time was I believe the left mouse button, but with this, it's the spacebar? I could go on, but I'm sure you get the point. Also, ditch the social club. Max Just wasn't Max in this one.

make dual wierd quite a bit more difficult to use. Really the thing that made me stop playing. And sniper rifles.

Retool the plot so that Max wasn't so much the druken pill munching detached turdsandwich.

Reduce all the drug/booze/flashback screen twitches so that they actually had some meaning instead of just becoming an ignored environmental constant.

More night time missions. All the day time missions should be earlier in the game and allow it to progress towards darkness.

Make the plot less nihilistic in which Max does succeed in at least something instead of diablous ex machinas ruining everything. SPOILER: He couldn't get the money to the gang, he couldn't save Fabiana, he couldn't protect her husband, and on and on.

IE... we kill bad guys for nothing. No self-gratification whatsoever

The only change I would implement is it wouldn't have that gad-awful Rockstar Social Club attached to it. Honestly, for me that RSC thing is the dealbreaker between insta-buy and waiting a year till its on sale for 5 bucks (which is what I did.)

Oh, and checkpoint saves still suck.

Fewer cutscenes and get rid of the ♥♥♥♥ing social club

Fewer cut-scenes or let us skip them.
smoother controls, not so weighty, make them more responsive. Give us a jump button and let us explore the levels more. More easter eggs, more interactions with the surrondings.
Give us the entire inventory, don't limit us to just three weapons.
Nerf the shoot-dodge, you can spam it, while you're in it you can't come to any harm plus it's pretty darn slow.
Give us grenades in the single player campaing, not just grenades but molotovs too.
Improve the last stand, it's clunky.
Give us "dead man walking" mode without forcing us to buy any silly DLCs.
No rail shooting segments.
Make it clear to us if there is a time limit, I am not asking for a time runnig in the corner or something, do it like Max Payne 1 did it.



Balance the "harder" difficulties by letting you use more bullet time rather than to force you into cover just cause the bullet time goes aways so quickly.

Bring the old Max back, old Max doesn't swear, he's calm and isn't a stupid ♥♥♥♥♥. His monologues are better too.




...Perhaps I should just play MP2 again.

I'm getting a pretty clear concensus on a few things here; 1. The storyline should have been about Max either finally receiving his redemption, his magnum opus from depression, or at least him becoming finally free of his horrible past. 2. The gameplay was too restrictive! I agree with this more than anything else, as much fun as MP3 is, it becomes more of a shooter, and almost a 'poor mans' gears of war style one at that! The game itself, should have been a strategic third person bullet-time shooter, not a gears of war style cover shooter. But, I prefer MP1 myself so I'm very biased there! 3. No rockstar games social club! for ♥♥♥♥s sake! 4. The Cinematic "Loading during cutscene," and the 'drunken hazey mind effects,' both need to swim with the fishes here.

Not to say MP3 wasn't good, but if these had all been introduced, tooled, or simply, and utterly changed to be the finished product; Max Payne 3 would have been a Max Payne Threquel worthy of finishing a generally awesome, and horribly underrated series.

Less cut scenes, comic book cutscenes.
