Summary: Some of the reviews complain of little bits and pieces, but I haven't found anything which actually dented my enjoyment of this game. The graphics and gameplay are solid, the soundtrack good - it still packs a similar punch to the PC version, although allowances have to be made for the port. Very enjoyable all round.
Forget this games potential, the fact is it's poor.

Summary: I got this game on the basis of online reviews, and I have to say, that no matter good an idea it was, the flaws are huge and ruin it completely. This isn't a game with a few problems that you can ignore, it's plain bad because of them. The shooting is ruined by off screen enemies, which you can't see. Seeing as the point of this game is in it's shooting, this problem ruins any enjoyment you might get.
Summary: An exciting and violent shoot-'em-up. Good graphics and gameplay make Max Payne an addictive game. I was disappointed to finish the game so quickly, but relieved when two "new" adventures were offered as a reward. Imagine my disgust when the two "new" games were identical to the first, except one had a timer to beat, and in the other the baddies just caused slightly more damage and required a few more bullets to stop them.
Summary: ...high powered weapons and the usual Bullet Time feature. Both ofthese have been brought to the GBA version excellently, with the abilityto slow-mo blood splatter walls looking impressive. And yes, there is theoption to turn off the gore. This is not an easy game, progressionbeing painful sometimes, but in all it is a worthy addition to yourcollect and many hours of bad-cop action.
Summary: Das erfolgreiche Video-und Computerspiele auf Handheld Konsolen portiert werden ist nichts mehr neues, klar ist auch dass dabei drastische Änderungen vorgenommen werden müssen. Jedoch besteht dabei die Gefahr das das Spiel dann nicht mehr viel mit dem Original zu tun hat. Wie sich das bei Max Payne für den Game Boy Advance verhält erfahrt ihr hier. Max ist ein New Yorker Polizist, dessen Frau und Tochter wurden brutal von Junkies ermordet worden.
Pros: sehr Gute, Grafik, spannende Geschichte, gute Soundeffekte, super Action
