Max Payne is a man with nothing to lose in the violent, cold urban night. A fugitive undercover cop framed for murder, hunted by cops and the mob, Max is a man with his back against the wall, fighting a battle he cannot hope to win. Max Payne is a relentless story-driven game about a man on the edge, fighting to clear his name while struggling to uncover the truth about his slain family amongst a myriad of plot-twists and twisted thugs in the gritty bowels of New York during the century's worst blizzard.
The groundbreaking original cinematic action-shooter, Max Payne introduced the concept of Bullet Time in videogames. Through its stylish slow-motion gunplay combined with a dark and twisted story, Max Payne redefined the action-shooter genre.
Remedy and 3D Realms present Max Payne, a story-driven 3rd person action game aimed for a mature audience. Realistic weapon setup includes over a dozen real-life guns, all fitting the crime-story setting like a bullet in the head. The action is surrounded with more than 80 hand-painted comic-screens that enhance the game's gritty atmosphere and attitude, introduce the game's murderous cast of characters, and carry the plot from one location to the next.

I bought this game because the second installment of the series is and will always be my favorite video game of all time. I wanted to take a look at the game's roots and see how the previous one matched up. The biggest changes between the two are an improved script/darker and more comedic storyline in #2, and some better voice acting. Other than that, the gameplay is the same, most of the same weapons are used, and the same AMAZING styles of combat are used. Seriously, the Max Payne Bullet Time feature is one of the coolest features I have had the pleasure of using in video games. There is nothing like the rush of the perfectly executed, awesome movie-like shoot-while-diving type encounter, and Max Payne has the patent on it.
I would definitely recommend this game to people who enjoy the "Noire" genre and an action game with a good storyline. I would, however, recommend the sequel more highly, just because it is one of the greatest things to ever be created by a video game company. The Max Payne series is amazing, you should definitely give it a try!
Max Payne is a gritty story about a cop just doing his job. His wife an baby are murdered and it throws his world into turmil. As you can imagine, he wants revenge and he gets revenge many times over.
What makes Max Payne unique is that it uses John Woo style moves and action. This was the first game to feature "bullet time", which allows the player to slow down the action and perform fancy dive and jump moves while blasting their weapon at a target in slo-mo. Couple this with a good story and vengeance and you have a winning game. You get sucked into the world of Max Payne and you can't help but love it.
Max Payne is a huge game. By the end you'll have killed hundreds of people in your quest for the truth. It's plenty of action. Even though by today's standards the graphics look a little dated, it was top of the line for its time, with reflective floor surfaces and flying wall debris.
Another cool thing about this game is you can use cheat codes and slow the action down to a stop, then move it forward one frame at a time. You see, with Max Payne the bullets are actually flying out of the gun at the target, so when you do super slow-mo you get to see the bullets in mid-air heading for their target. Using the time cheat you can watch bullets hit targets and debris flying all over the place in realistic fashion.
Long story short, it's a must-own game for FPS fans. There's no multi-player, but who needs it when you have all the action you could want.
Also check out Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne. It continues the story, has updated graphics and the characters' mouths move when they talk. It takes Max Payne up another level. However, the game is somewhat shorter than the first installment. Get both of them today!
WELL worth the money and time to play. You will love it.
