The Max Payne series has always been about popping pills, John Woo-style dual-wielding slow-motion action, and ragdoll corpses flying in every direction. With Max Payne 3 getting closer to release (or further, as it has recently been delayed from March 6 to May 15), Rockstar Games has released another video detailing the game’s weaponry and combat.

I like that while the franchise has gotten a major bump up in production values since 2003’s The Fall of Max Payne, it still has that signature presentation that fans should find immediately familiar.
