Also: "You will clearly see that it's a Rockstar game"
Like Ryan said in the quicklook, there is a risk of homogenization here. Rockstar games are usually good, but lot of games already have the Rockstar style characters and writing. It would have been nice if they kept the old visual style and setting, but updated the gameplay.
Even if Remedy didn't prefer the setting, plot, or style of Max Payne 3 they probably wouldn't say it. Remedy is a developer not a publisher right now. It wouldn't really serve them to point out creative differences of another company's game if they would have done things differently. Again, it's not a bad game, but it's clear it would have been a lot different if Remedy made it.
Edit - I guess this could be moved to the game's forum.
