  • Conclusion: Max Payne 2 is a love it or hate it game. I think anyone who likes games or for that matter, people who hate playing games, should play Max Payne 2. It has an intriguing storyline, Bullet Time is really fun, and there are many more things to like about this game.
  • Pros: Storyline, Easy to play, Bullet Time wows me
  • Cons: More in the manual wouldn’t hurt, Replay value is sparse, No multi-player

  • Excerpt: Remedy and AC/DC have a similar outlook and thats a good thing. If it isnt broke, dont fix it, dont screw around with it, dont monkey with it or mess with it just give us more of the same, and make it a tiny little bit crazier and a little bit louder the next time around.

  • Summary: When we last left Max Payne, he just racked up a body count equal to a small third world country and sent Nicole Horne to a fiery death in a helicopter. It’s been a few years but he’s back to create more mayhem and unleash more bullets into bad guys.

  • Excerpt: 2001 was a very good time for action games. In case you have already forgotten, 2001 was the year Rockstar brought gamers Max Payne. Playing through the perspective of Payne, players had to avenge the death of his wife and kid. The game also introduced the often immitated slowdown mode, Bullet Time.
