"If we were to choose one mod to convince you to reinstall Max it would be this one." - PC GAMER. 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. Competing for his severed head are the very people he used to work with - Mercenaries, Assassins, Ninja, and good old fashioned Psychopaths. The worst mankind has to offer. Heavily influenced by popular Japanese Anime and recent movies such as Kill Bill; Katana combines Max Payne's stylish Bullet-Time with stunning, yet brutal, bladed-weapon combat. Developed by Maddieman and StratonAce, with help and support from Kenneth Yeung, Katana lifts the Max Payne engine to new heights and takes the player to new levels of pain.

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".

Good mod, but the voice acting is below mediocre at times, and the boring cutscenes are a drag with the omission of a skip key.

Can somebody extract the shootdodge ability (without the gymnastics/ninja shootdodge animations) out of this mod and upload it as a seperate mod?

The only problem I have with Max Payne 1 is how terrible the default shootdodge is; super short usage duration, jumping backward to shootdodge makes your back almost flat on the floor immediately and the same can be said when you jump forward to shootdodge forward. It would be awesome. Thanks :)
