Its UE3 powered, graphics are ok IMO. There are some videos of the action at ign also.

Midway is the developer/publisher. That means it's most likely going to suck.

Why do so many people have to be so negative!

Looks like it could be really fun, can't wait for a demo. Trailer looks funky too.

I usually don't agree with the whole don't judge a book by its cover thing, but I gotta say... I agree with you on that.

Yeah, they aren't called Midway for nothing. They consistently deliver very average games, and have been doing this for many years.

Max Payne was one of the best games of all time... they would have a lot to beat...

Maybe if they added some hand to hand combat...lots of Asian kung-fu potentials in those screens...it's nice to see some more UE3 shots though, just to see how other developers are using the engines potential. Or not, in this case.

I'd have to disagree with that.

Mortal Kombat is by far my favorite fighting game franchise.

Not to mention Psi-Ops, The Suffering, Rampage, Ready 2 Rumble Boxing, etc.

Sorry to hear that? I don't need no ****ing sympathy. I said what I said. Tekken 5/Virtua Fighter 4 is your favorite fighting game franchise. Not mine. Don't forget that.

The good news is you're both wrong.

Power Stone > All.

I loved those games too. very underrated. Psi-Ops on the xbox helped me get through the period I didn't have a gaming PC. Now I'm thinking about finding the PC DVD version to see it at a higher res.

Am I the only one that thinks this looks worse then Max Payne? It appears every other dev other then Epic can't make good use of the UE3 Engine...
