A Complete Mess

Susan Timm "Jesus", Amazon

  • Summary: What do you do in Max Payne 2? You walk from room to room shooting enemies in slow-motion dives. Oh yeah, and there's a competent story and some cool dream levels thrown into the mix. Now I'm all for mindless shooting (Especially when the enemy AI is as good as it is here) but a number of serious flaws suck the fun right out of this PC port. 1. Load times- Around 45 seconds everytime you start a new level or die and have to respawn.

Severely disappointing port to the PS2

  • 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. A noticibly terrible frame rate, blurry textures, missing sound effects, an even worse save system, and ridiculously long loading times plague what could have been a stellar game.

An interesting idea, but not good enough

Daniel Reade, Amazon

  • Summary: As much fun as running in slow mo, and diving while firing with cinematic flourish, can be, Max Payne 2 is, quite frankly, an exercise in frustration. The game has numerous good points, but in the end, those good points are weighed down by what can be a rather plodding, frustrating and monotonous game. To give Max Payne 2 its due, there are positives that need to be mentioned.

Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne

DT Dunham, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: How come so many people enjoy such a controlled environment to play in. You can't wander off and explore, there seems little opportunity to take any alternative paths to achieve goals (doors remain locked until it is time for you to go through them, after having taken all the previous steps carefully planned for you).

Mediocre at best

Richard Hall, Amazon

  • Summary: I expected more from Rockstar, the company that brought us the incredible world of GTA. Max Payne 2 is defintely not GTA. The gameplay is awkward, the story is horribly written (the dialogue is so bad it makes you cringe), and the main difficulty in the game seems to lie with not getting so irritated with the game that you stop playing it. One of the few redeeming features is the bullet time mode, which is pretty cool.

Far worse than the first one...

Richard Hall, Amazon
28 January 2004
  • 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??), the bullet-time is no different from normal time (it's sepia toned - oh boy!), and the auto-save feature from the first version is missing (forcing you to stop and save your game every 1-2 minutes).
