Guys, this game is a continuation of the story started in a John Woo film called Hard Boiled. Woo's films are the reason why you can't turn on a movie or a video game without seeing a guy diving through the air sideways, dual pistols blazing. The guy literally invented that "genre" (if you can call it that) with the A Better Tomorrow series (started '86), and Max Payne - not to mention "highly original" films like The Matrix - owe their very existence to John Woo. Woo himself is designing and overseeing this game, so calling it a Payne ripoff is like calling Indiana Jones a Tomb Raider ripoff. Respect where respect is due.
