13 May 2015
Summary: Failed to mention in description that cover art has EXTREME wear and tear and looks like it was in some kinda of water. TERRIBLE. disc and manual are perfect but the case itself was destroyed and front and back cover art art almost unbearable. will not purchase from this seller again.
Summary: There is no auto save on this second installment. If you don't save the game yourself you might be upset later on. This game doesn't seem to connect like the first one did. The story is ok, but the graphics and controls are lousy.
Summary: The PC version of Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne managed to improve on the first game in some areas and was vastly enjoyable overall, however this Playstation 2 port of the game is severely disappointing.

Summary: This game is little to no improvement upon the first. There are practically no new moves that can be used in bullet time and the graphics are a poor quality. The story is weak and predicatable. Rent this game before buying or you will likely be regretting a $50 purchase.

Summary: There is a reason that this game earned paltry, failing grades from GameSpot (6.5) and other reviewers - because it totally sucks. The framerates are stunningly slow (turning 360 degrees takes 4-5 seconds), the mission load times are 20-30 seconds (what??
