Max Payne

Portable Review
23 October 2005
  • Excerpt: Rockstar is most known for its over-the-top shock factor games. Last year, they developed a console game that brought bullet-time into the lime light. They followed it up this year with a sequel and a GBA port of the original.

Max Payne (Game Boy Advance) Review

  • Summary: Max Payne caused quite a stir on the PC, not only did it have a gripping plot with excellent twists, captured the gritty underworld of New York with supreme excellence and also supplied terrific gameplay, bringing in, the emulated to no end, "Bullet Time" mechanism for the first time in gaming.

  • Excerpt: Max Payne: the game synonymous with Bullet Time arrives on the GBA surprising intact.
