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 15 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!

The original game's use of bullet time sucked. I found it much easier to just pop out and shoot, pop out and shoot, and repeat.every single time I intiated a shootdodge in this game I got killed like Sonny at the causeway. But for some reason I was awesome at mp2.

I like mp2 a lot better, both in gameplay as graphical as story.. but maybe that's because I never had the chance to actualy finish mp1.

NOw this game is ******* awesome, really fun to play. You can play over and over just after the 5th time you beat the game you get a little bored of it, BUT JUST A LITTLE.

This Max Payne game is as gritty as it gets.... especially the weird and quite mentally disturbing Dreams!
:( lol though this game is an awesome peice of work and if it wasnt for max payne we probably wouldnt have the adancements like actual bullets coming out of guns and stuff in our more modern game. I am back playing this again after it wasnt working properly!

Try shooting the portrait near the room where you find the floor plans of AESIR plaza in the level "In The Land of The Blind". You'll find a switch in the wall behind the portrait which causes the sofa to open to a passageway to a room where the TV plays some sort of StarTrek spoof "The Void". And a cabinet containing really cool Katanas, Shurikens, Wakizashis and other ninja stuff.8)
