Max Payne gets the mobile treatment

Most people were pleasantly surprised at the mobile port of Grand Theft Auto III. Rockstar Games provided the full Grand Theft Auto experience to iOS and Android users complete with cut scenes and the iconic radio stations. Needless to say -- with the exception of tricky controls -- the game was a hit with mobile gamers.
 
Rockstar Games is hoping to accomplish the same feat with Max Payne Mobile. Once again, the full gaming experience will be unleashed on gamers and you'll be able to experience "bullet time" in all its mobile glory.
 
Users of iOS devices (iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod Touch 4, and all generations of the iPad) will be able to download the game on April 12. A select number of Android devices (full device compatibility details haven't been released yet) will have access to the game on April 26.

I don't know, that's pretty much a show stopper for me. Most games I try on mobile I can't play because of controls.
Afaik, Max Payne was all about quick reactions. On a mobile, that should translate in a big button to script the whole series of actions for you.
