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.

  • 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. The action is there, the bullet time is there”somehow even 20+ minutes of narration is there. It's all quite an accomplishment on a handheld.
