Near the end of the game, Max's character really reminded me of John McClane from Die Hard. Especially when he is down to just his vest. Anyone else get that reference. Whilst Max was humour full in the other 2 installments, its been ramped up in this game, which is similar to McClanes humour "yipikaye motherfucker"
Max McClane or John Payne
He's always been a wisecrackin' everyman in over his head, but Rockstar really embraced the action hero qualities, essentially to the point of deflating the whole concept of the American savior in a foreign land.
Yea, imagining that the game was a Die Hard instalment really enhanced the experience for me. I even tossed a few McClaneisms at my TV for my own amusement.
And don't be foolish, the best Die Hard is the first, this is just fact.
"Oooooh! And the quarterback, IS TOAST!"
Funny you should mention it because shortly after beating the game on Hard, I stayed up to watch an HD airing of Die Hard 2 on TV, and I couldn't help but think what with the airport setting and demeanor, John McClane is the closest movie character to the Max Payne in MP3, even closer, much closer in fact, than Wahlberg's portrayal of Max in the MP movie.
Using Wahlberg in the MP movie was pretty bad casting if you ask me. Too bad they didn't use James McCaffrey himself.
