So the demo is out today and from what I've seen..its very impressive except for certain spots...The dodging bullets mini game is indeed interesting.

This game is looking more like a must buy with every update....oh and look multiplayer john woo action!:eek:

PS3 or 360....so hard to choose but that hard boiled Bluray is looking too sweet to pass up.

^ Thing is I can get this for €35 on 360 by importing from Play.asia

However the collectors edition for PS3 will set me back €75 here if I want HardBoiled.

That's €40 difference or basically another game. I'm not paying €40 for a BD movie anyway regardless, so it looks like I'll pick up the 360 version.

I've played the demo and me likes. The camera can really be a problem though...hope they fix that.

The place where I buy my games from are selling both copies at the same price...I'm going to go with the PS3 vesion.

Finally played the demo of this last night.

Had fun, I dunno...I think it's a rental for me unless reviews (or members here like you, 2ny) say the multiplayer is great. It was fun, but it certainly got very repetitive; felt like I did more diving than walking. ;)

I just wonder if the story will hold up.
Max Payne 2 had a story I wanted to see fulfilled, so I played through and didn't really have a problem with overdosing on bullet time. (Haven't really played Max Payne 1)

Stranglehold...I'm not so sure of. Seems more action/shootout and less story. That's not a bad thing per se, but that would put it in a 'rental' category for me - again, unless the multiplayer shines. From the video that airs after you finish/try to quit the demo, multiplayer looks chaotic. I don't know if it's choatic yet "easy to swallow" or chaotic and full blown mass hysteria. :)

Definitely a title I will be watching closely though; always was a Chow Yun-Fat fan as well as a John Woo fan.
