The purpose of the mod is to make Max Payne 2 more realistic and tactical, but at the same time to give a dramatic and cinematographic feel to the shootouts.
This mod, IMHO, deserves a 10/10.
Here is why :
- Not just changing the entire gameplay to make it even more epic and changing almost all the visual and effects for a new game experience, this mod includes expansion packs and funny minigames. There is a LOT of QUALITY content, which can only be seen rarely in a mod.
- That sound. That sound. The first i noticied with this mod is how every god damn weapon sound is awesome and immersive. Even with a little Beretta, you really feel like you're litterally pwning your ennemis. This is freakin' awesome.
- I really appreciate the effort put into this mod. First, for the reasons I wrote above, and second, there's alot if things that the mod developers could just have passed away and scamp thier work. But those little things like, the voice acting in the extensions, the well-done minigames, the bonus Dead Man Walking Levels ( oh damn, that nostalgie with the Roscoe Street Station ), you really see these guys have put a lot of effort in this awesome release, and I thank them for that. Without this, my rating would have only been 9/10.
- Enjoy finally a mod with almost no bugs.
I could spend my night writing about this masterpiece, but if I could resume my review in three words : Try this mod!
Thank you guys for Payne Effects 3. You have all my respect.
This is one of the greatest mods for any game I have ever played. Right from the main menu with the fantastic choice of music I knew this was going to be great. The cover system is fantastic and the weapons are a great addition without being annoying or over powerful. You have re kindled my love for this great game. Thank you.
