Max Payne's signature slow motion gunplay has been improved on every level. Get ready for Bullet Time 2.0, with new guns and moves that make action more intense and cinematic. The fully integrated Havok physics engine allows for interactive environments with ragdoll characters and physics in slow motion that create breathtaking combat scenes. All new AI cooperative non-player characters and more believable enemies create tension and an interesting and varied challenge. Detailed environments with stunning photorealistic textures, highly enhanced radiosity lighting, and extremely lifelike characters (including facial animations and lip synchronization) provide a visually staggering cinematic experience. Massive production values include a motion-picture stunt crew, professional talent for voice acting and graphic novels, live motion capture, and authentic digital source material from New York City.

When the original Max Payne hit PC users in 2001, it was generally considered a success. Bullet Time in videogames was still a shiny new concept and the unexpectedly over-the-top "film noir" style kept fans shooting away, despite complaints that, really, you were just doing the same thing over and over.
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.

Never has there been a crime game saga like that of "Max Payne". It has revolutionized it's genre of gaming. "Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne" is a mesmerizing follow up to the original. The first one set the standard and this second chapter followed the original very well. Once again the game has a breath- taking storyline filled with stunning visuals of brutal and mesmerizing action. This time we guide Max through the web of controversy revolving around his love interest Mona Sax. At the climax we see her perspective as we have the chance to guide her through the adventure as our battered hero is fighting for his life. The game holds your intrigue throughout and delivers a heart pounding climax at the end. After completing the detective mode you then test your endurance in 4 more intense perspectives of the crime epic of Mr. Payne. This one is an original along with its predecessor. The "Max Payne" saga will go down as one of the greatest and most influential games in video game history.

When Max Payne first came out in 2001, I was blown away. The voice-acting, action sequences, bullet-time, incredible story, along with a great cast of characters. In Max Payne 2, everything is better or improved. One thing that made this game so great was its story. Torn between right and wrong, love and hate, not to mention a dark tragic past, is a great background to set the story. This is perhaps one of the best games ever made on any system. I have this game for the computer. I reccomend that you buy it for pc. You can download cool mods,etc. In addition, the ending you could see coming frim a mile away. However, the ending is great but very sad. After the last scene, the song "late goodbye" plays which fits in with the theme of the game. Never have I played a game that contains so much emotion and violence. PARENTS!! THIS IS GAME IS NOT FOR YOUNG KIDS. This is a game that is truly hard to top. The only bad thing was that it is short. The story alone is a good reason to buy the game, not to mention bullet-time. The story unfolds like a movie, which makes for an incredible gaming experience.IF YOU DONT HAVE IT ALREADY, BUY IT. Now i am waiting for max payne 3 to come out and raise the standards for action games again.

I love this game, and have been playing it since it game out on PS2. I own an Xbox, but the deciding factor for me to buy this when I was much younger was my uncle just giving me the controller as a Survival-type game thing was loading up on Hard-Boiled difficulty, and said "Try this out." I was in disbelief, as I was probably like 8 or 9 at the time, and although I was a fan of games even as violent as Manhunt and The Punisher, it was like.. He gave me the controller to survive on the hardest difficulty all the while I had never played, only watched him. Needless to say, I got killed time and time again, but I loved it. I recently stumbled across some of my favorites on Amazon so I decided to dust off the Halo edition Xbox and put it into the entertainment center. Point being, this game is legendary, the one after it.. Not so much.. But Max Payne 2? A must have if you see a copy on here anywhere. And they're all below $20 including shipping. I highly recommend it, honestly.

I was a little nervous about purchasing this game considering some of the complaints I've heard. Fortunately I found none of the complaints to be true and ended up loving this game more than the origional. The main knock that I heard was that the game was too short. Rather I found myself satisfied with the game length. It was neither too short, yet the story wasn't drug out to annoying lengths.
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.
