    Wow, are those actual in-game screenshots or cutscenes?

    Hot damn! I loved Max Payne, here's hoping this one's just as good (if not better.)

    Looks like a different character model. It looks like screenshots of cutscenes to me.

    Wasn't the Max Payne model one of the developers for the game?

    This Max Payne model looks more like Robert Stack with a gun. Still, I like it. The detail being put in games like Doom3, Half Life 2 and now Max Payne always amazes me.

    He was apparently modeled after a guy named Sam Lake in the first game. I like this version much better. At the very least, he no longer has that weird half grin plastered on his face. It'd be even better if the characters had the ability to display different emotions a la Half-Life 2, but I'll go out on a limb and say that doesn't seem to be the case. It's hard to judge from these few shots, but if you look at his sunken cheeks in both shots, it looks like the same expression. No big deal. That's fairly cutting edge stuff from Valve anyway.

    As far as whether it's cutscenes or actual play, I don't think it matters that much. It's going to be in-game cutscenes, so we still get a sense of exactly how it's going to look.

    EB's date is wrong. Max Payne 2 is a 2005 title, presumed to be an XB2 launch game

    Max Payne 2 is Fall 2003 for the PC. Is it skipping the X-Box because the game will need the extra power of the next version of the console?
