DOOM II Xbox Live Review

AtomicGamer
9 June 2010
  • Excerpt: I never thought I would be starting off the title of an article with the words "Doom II Review", but when I found that the game had been released to XBox Live, I jumped at the chance to play my favorite game from the Dooming era. In case you've been living under a rock, Doom II: Hell on Earth is the sequel to the popular first person shooter Doom that was released by id Software in 1993.

Shooter's intriguing story is for adults only.

Common Sense Media
6 February 2005
  • Summary: Parents need to know that an intriguing storyline may make this game more appealing than some first-person shooter games; however, it still glorifies violence, makes ample use of profanity, and contains significant mature sexual content, making this a game for adults only. Parents should be aware that there are multiple scenes of close-up assassination-style killings: direct gun-to-face, close-range shooting.

Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne

Game Over Online
10 December 2004
  • Excerpt: The sophomore appearance of Max Payne is very much like what The Godfather Part II is to the original The Godfather. Everything that worked for the original was expanded to a better more focused and finely crafted sequel. Everything that didn’t quite work was dropped. In its subject material, dubbed a film noir love story, Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne is edgier and darker with adult themes dominating the title from start to finish.

Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne

Gameguru Mania
1 December 2004
  • Excerpt: I had been waiting for Max Payne 2 since the day I completed the first Max Payne ( review 93%). Now Max Payne is back and it has yet again exceeded my highest expectations in form of gameplay and graphics, with a few flaws, but none that detract from it, nor will keep me from playing it over and over again, like the last one. So what you can expect from Max Payne 2?

Max Payne 2: The Fall Of Max Payne

The Gamers Temple
25 October 2004
  • Excerpt: Max Payne, the brooding and violent detective with the ability to slow time in a firefight, is back, caught in the middle of a mob war, precinct politics, and his own fascination with a mysterious femme fatale assassin known as Mona Sax.  The story takes place after the events of the first game and completing that game will certainly help you catch numerous references made to it in Max Payne 2, but you'll still be able to enjoy Max Payne 2 without having played the...

  • Excerpt: When Max Payne came out a couple years ago, I was totally addicted. The combination of the non-stop action game play combined with the "can't wait to see what's next" storyline had me hooked for a week until I beat it. Yeah it was short, but man was it sweet. Max Payne 2 was no exception.

  • Excerpt: A term coined by French critics who noticed a trend of dark themes to American detective and crime stories in the 40s, 50s, and 60s, I cannot think of a better way to describe

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Great storyline, hard-boiled atmosphere, beautifully worked bullet-time shoot-em-up action, an all-new physics engine, dream sequences, unlimited saves and even a new female characters to play add up to a sequel game whose existence, for once, is easy to justify, as it is much, much better than the original and, indeed, one of 2003's best games.
