    From what people have said over on /v/, enemies are almost as mobile as max, so camping in cover doesn't work for long. It's really just useful for hiding and scoping the area out before you run and gun.

    then why are you complaining about it

    Edited:

    also you could never just run in blindly into an area and start shooting wildly in MP1 or 2 so it's not like it makes a difference

    yeah that is true

    From what i've heard, the cover system is useful for hiding and assessing the situation, figuring out a strategy, then launching into action. That's no different to how MP1 and MP2 were; the firefights were often spontaneous and sudden, but you usually needed some sort of vague idea of who to shoot first, especially later in the games.

    Just like in the movies where a bunch of dudes are like "Oh shit, you guys got a plan?" And then they burst into action once they have their shit and tactic sorted out.

    I don't know what difficulity you were playing but if you started reloading or at least had a moment where someone was shooting at you and you weren't shooting at them, at least in max payne 1 you were dead right there

    Yeah, but "plans" in Max Payne are like "Okay, shoot the guys who are looking at me first before they murder me, then improvise"

    but if you don't have a simple plan like that, you're fucked.

    MP1 and 2 are very different in this aspect seeing as you can reload very quickly in the latter if you use bullet time, and i was mostly referring to the second one, although i did do that most of the time in the first as well.

    I use cover all the time in Max Payne. It usually has me standing face towards the wall trying to manipulate the camera to see enemies around the corner.

    This usually leads to me shootdodging from cover to cover. I imagine it will be even more awesome now. Shoot dodging across a doorway straight into a wall shoulder first.

    I really do love the physical reactions to obstacles because of Euphoria, eg. in the multiplayer gameplay video last page, he was trying to dive over a railing and his legs clanged off of them. (proceeding to slam the floor with his back)

    Max is having a bad day, with his hand bumping into an obstacle, grenade blast slides him to the other end of room and finally he gets shot. Likes something out of The Naked Gun.

    I have to wait until the end of the month for the PC edition to come out. It really sucks.

    Also, I sent an invite to the crew (Eroobus).

    I kinda wish they kept some of the graphical bits from Red Dead. Things like animation changes and speed when moving up and down stairs and hills, and the blood soaking through your clothes when you got hit. Those were things that were already created, and I think they should've carried them over.

    Since i never played a Max Payne game before, and the third one has sparked my interest. I thought i would buy the first one on xbox and get a feel for it.

    I wish i knew about these games sooner, so far im enjoying it. Although im scratching my head what 3D realms have to do with it.
