Max Payne 3 has just blown into town like an old lover so why not reminisce about the old days by replaying the original two games.... Modified!

Max Payne

The Real World
It wouldn't be a Max Payne 1 mod if we didn't have some high flying kungfu and bullet dodging now would it? The most recent of all the MP mods to be released, however it is only a demo. Lets see where they go with this!

Neo Trinity

It seems you got anime in my angsty. Katana draws you into the violent and chaotic world of an Assassin on the run: - from his Order; from the shattered remains of his past; and from the haunting screams of the countless people he's murdered.

Godlike Ass kicking

Max Payne@University
This mod was acutally modeled after a real university and a story played around it! It makes use of a few other mods like Kung Fu 3 Deluxe Engine (by Kenneth Yeung, MrUniq) and the Enemy Kung Fu (by Ghasp) engine to round (house kick) out the mod.

No safe place Stewie died for a reason

The Family
The Family is a truly unique modding experience, as it follows the story of the young gangster Tony in an entire black and white film noir-ish world of the 1930's mafia era.

In-game In-game

Max Payne 2

Payne Effects 3
It wouldn't be a modding guide without one overhaul mod, and this one is really good. With new spectacular unique effects and with lot of key features that will drammatically change the original gameplay. Everything is created to improve the original feel of the game without loosing the Max Payne signature.

Payne Effects 3 Features Payne Effects 3 Features

7th Serpent: Crossfire and 7th Serpent: Genesis
Thrusting players into a world of corruption, secrecy and vengeance. Two different chapters within the same universe. Made by ModDB's ye'old editor Stenchy and his team, so you know it is good!

Train Wreck Gameplay

Mona: The Assassin
Mona Sax is a contract-killer, a job at which she excels. When a Mafia boss sends his army of mobsters after her, assaulting her hideout and forcing her to flee through the city streets, it gets personal and real nasty. Play through a fan story of Mona Sax!

I played the 'Cinema mod' too many times to count for Max Payne. I just wanted to share it, because it didn't make this list and because I enjoyed it so much.

The only Max Payne 2 mod I tried back in the day was Hall of Mirrors-

It's based on the movie Equilibrium, it was pretty neat

I was really hoping my Victoriously Enhanced MP2 mod would make the list. Oh well. These are all epic mods and should not be missed.

Sorry, but this list is kinda lame, there`s like half of all big mods.
For example you missed New Dawn, Eos, while still including Payne Effects. Strange point.

Thanks for including my mods in the list. :)

PS. if you want to try something a little different (exploding penguins; robotic santa; super-deformed elves; and a 10-foot, snowboarding polar bear called Dinky).

Like Maddieman, I want to thank you for mentioning our mod in the list for Max Payne (1) mods :)

It would be great if more people get to discover the many mods for the first two Max Payne games (original and sequel), released or currently in the works (like the Real World or Dawn of the Dead).

I also enjoyed the Street Fighter mod for Max Payne 2, and a lot of the levels included in the Chain Mapping Project and Chain Mapping Project: Reloaded
