To a lot of people, however, Max Payne was a game that was far more than the sum of it's parts. Many people (myself included) fell in love with the gritty, absurdly heavy style of the game. Those that didn't really "get it" complained about Max's constant use of insanely overwrought metaphors, ever-present gloom, and ridiculous storyline, but everyone who was able to see it as the campy homage that it was had a blast.
When part 2 was announced, I was thrilled. Max Payne is a series that lends itself pretty well to a sequel because, really, you don't have to change much about the game mechanics. They're pretty simple, and they work fine. It had already come to light that there were going to be no fundamental changes beyond some minor tweaks to Bullet Time and a completely different plot, so it sounded good to me.
And, upon playing through the game in one sitting, that's exactly what I got.
What this means is, if you liked the first Max Payne, you'll like the second one, if you didn't, you won't. Easy as that. Gameplay is IDENTICAL. There are a few alterations to some of Max's moves and skills (i.e. There are now deeper levels of Bullet Time, attained by winning gunfights while under the effects of slo-mo) and a few new weapons (An AK-47 and a somewhat impossible dual-Desert Eagle approach) but that's it.Read more ›
The graphics look great and I was impressed with your ability to interact with the environment. Most objects are movable and after a heavy gun battle, the room looks like you'd expect it. Blood on the walls, bullet holes everywhere, chairs and bottles knocked over. Graphically I noticed very few glitches...maybe 3 throughout the entire game.
The graphic novel style is still here and some people found that a bit annoying. This unique way of storytelling was used in the origional to save money and evidently it worked well enough that they've decided to stick with it. My only problem with it is that sometimes this slows the game down. It's nice to have a little breather after a difficult level and watch as the story advances, but sometimes the break was way too long. The story can get a little cheesy, but this is something I've come to expect from Max Payne.
One thing I noticed is that the weapon selection is exactly the same as the first one. While there are quite a few guns to choose from, there could have been a few additions just to keep things interesting.
Overall this is a great sequel and well worth the money, especially if you enjoyed the first game.
