Journey into the gritty and not particularly pleasant world of Max Payne. This third person action game features a strong storyline and an altogether interesting antihero. Max Payne is a gritty journey to the present day New York City during the worst winter blizzard in a century. The thriller pulp story keeps the players guessing right on till the end. The game shoots from the lowest slum pits to the greatest skyscraper heights, leaving behind a trail of corpses, splatters of blood, and empty brass rolling on the floor.

About Max Payne 3 with 17 comments by INtense! on Jun 3rd, 2012

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!

This is without a doubt the best game I have ever played. Such a cool story with cheesy dialogue spoken with such drama :D

And lets not forget the graphics, the diverse levels, the high interactivity (Even today there aren't many games that let you flush toilets/screw around with furniture/turn on/off tvs/ open drawers) the massive bodycount, the special effects and last but not least the secrets, I found a secret not too long ago even after playing this game for the last five years :D

The second idea was of Max's alter-ego fighting a different kind of battle with forces(?) trying to stop him. All this happens while he is being bound by a different set of limitations and can explore a new set of possibilities, maybe even supernatural powers. Third and the most exciting idea for me, personally, was of Max trying to investigate what other Valkyr-like drugs the dark lords could be working on. In the process, he stumbles upon the fact that "someone" is trying to get a few top scientists working on a project to develop time-machine. With this kind of power in their hands, they could rule the world, almost literally. Max must stop them and ultimately manages to get his hand on the actual time machine. Then he can go back in time and set things right from the very beginning, maybe even get his wife and child back. He deserved to live that American Dream after all, at least after having left piles of corpses behind him and dying a million times at the hands of amateur gamers all over the world. As stupid as the ideas may sound, well, this is what I was thinking.

I have tried both first and second installments of Max Payne and its real fun. When I first read that games can me modified and entirely new levels and even a parallel version of the game itself can be created, I found it simply fascinating. Being new to the idea of mods, I tried out a few for Max Payne and was almost instantly hooked to some of these altered versions of the game. Of late, I have been thinking what innovative ideas could be brought to life with thehelp of modifications. Though practically I have no idea about how to create these "new versions" of the game and the first few pages of text and explanations which came with mod tools lost out on me completely, basically because of my lack of understanding in even the slightest of technicalities involved. However, I would very much like to share a few crazy ideas I sort of daydreamt of as the versions which maybe I would love to play most, of course, if they turn out really well. First idea was based on the basic premise that what if he did something different along the way which could define the conclusion in a certain manner. However, if he were to do things with a slight difference, like, maybe kill a certain person before another one, it could alter things completely, thus leading him to an entirely new conclusion. To put it simply, to introduce the idea of choice about what actually to do and thus define the conclusion differently each time. For convenience sake, this version might be called "Alternate Timelines" or "What If" with various choices and different course of actions available to Max Payne as he progresses through the game with multiple endings worked out for each course of action he adopts. Of course, it may not be as simple to develop this version as it sounds, and things could become very complicated.
