The hugely anticipated Katana modification for Max Payne 1 has been released. You may have heard about this mod from recent issues of PC Gamer (both UK and US issues) and various online websites.
The mod is around 231mb and you can find a list of download mirrors here.
You take the role of "The Player", an ex-assassin with a dark past. The Order had taken him in, trained him, brainwashed him to become a ruthless killer. Due to some complications with a mission he ended up on the run, with all of The Order after him.
It's your job to try survive and find out the true story behind The Order and survive against other professional assassins such as yourself.
The mod takes the Max Payne engine and allows to to go one on one with a katana and some deadly matrix-style kung fu moves. It allows for some truly cinematic action and allows you to chop up your enemy in pieces or just plain decapitate them in true "Kill Bill" style.
PC Gamer UK called it the "Lovechild of Max Payne and Kill Bill".
