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.

A classic, epic game. Great storyline, great graphics (for its time) great gameplay, great everything in general. Everything is still awesome even after all this time. I have it installed, and play it almost every day. Definitively a must have.



They were all dead. The final cutscene was an exclaimation mark to all that led up to this point. I released my finger from the mouse and then it was all over.
To make any sense of it I need to go back 6 months - back to the night I installed Max Payne.
OK, enough quoting, this is one of the best games ever. It has a great, emotional, engaging story, about despair and revenge, with a lil' bit of conspiracy, great dialogues and monologues, sometimes some humour here and there, and a lot of athmosphere. Blizzard-torn New York, with it's darkest places, a great noir story. And the music, holly crap, it's beautiful!
But it's still a game, so what about gameplay? It's one of the most action-packed games I've played, shootouts remind me of Matrix trilogy. Bullet time, dual wielding, etc.
I don't know what else to tell, I already rated it, so I might aswell stop here. So yeah, the end.


The third person shooter combined with artistic dialogue in comical style = pure awesomeness

This is a very cool game!
I like:
Graphics:7/10-GOOD but old
Gameplay:9/10-VERY GOOD!
Weapons :7/10-A BIT less of weapons
Features:9/10-Let's play SOME Drums

one of my favorite tps on ps2 and it became better loved when i got on pc good story good action funny dialogues to 10/10

I think there's nothing to say about this mark. Max Payne was just the best game taht I played over my chilhood, even now I enjoy this game a lot.

Awesome game. Almost repetitive, if not for the varied locations and situations.
