Excerpt: Rockstar is most known for its
over-the-top shock factor games. Last year, they developed a console

Excerpt: Imagine yourself thrown into a dark world filled with thugs, junkies, hookers, crimelords and a hard boiled cop who's been wronged and wants revenge. That's Max Payne in a nutshell. Max's tale starts as his family is killed by flipped-out druggies.
Pros: Great story and voice acting, Lots of gunplay and action
Cons: Blocky characters and furniture, Platforming elements hampered by poor jump action, Gameplay is limited outside of the special features
Excerpt: GBA players have reason to smile: Max Payne is that rare sort of GBA game that manages to deliver the fun, style, and feel of its console counterpart.

Conclusion: This is a graphically impressive GBA game, with clear, crisp sprites, and nicely detailed levels. The sound is good, with decent samples and clear speech during the cut scenes in the game. If you’re into the Max Payne and own a GBA, You’ll love this version of the game.
Pros: Good, fun gameplay., Great selection of weapons., Isometric view works well.

Conclusion: Min skepsis inför ett Max Payne på Gameboy Advance var minst sagt stor. Hur skulle en av vår tids största actionrökare kunna anpassas till den lilla skärmen utan att tappa den underbara spelbarheten från ursprungsspelet?
Pros: Underhållande bärbar action, tekniskt bra utfört
