A not so perfect port of a otherwise perfect game

Summary: This PS2 port of Max Payne 2 leaves alot to be desired. The frame rate is really bad, it doesn't look nearly as good as the PC version and there's some obvious bugs in this port but at the end of the day it's still Max Payne. The story is one of the best in game, Max Payne maybe my favorite video protagonist and the gameplay is still fun as hell.

Summary: Max Payne 2 is an amazing game, but it's a horrible port on the PS2. That's why I won't take stars away because the game itself is good just not the PS2 version. Lower framerate Areas made shorter Lower graphical quality PS2 has a lot of bad PC ports and this is one of them.
Summary: Max Payne. Not just the name of a wrestler from the late 80's, early 90's, but now an icon in the gaming business. It was the name of the first game to capture John Woo's style of movie making in which time slows down during a dodgeing sequence. The first Max Payne told the story of the title character's revenge on those who killed his family. It was an intriguing story for an intriguing game.
Summary: This is a dark and deep game that I enjoyed greatly. It's exciting, it has interesting twists, and it's a very good shooter at it's core. The locations you play are great. The sound is great. I had no problem with the movements of the players. You get to play as Max and Mona. I put it up with one of the best games of it's genre. Bring on Max Payne 3!
Summary: The story is engrossing, I have to admit that I really like this game. But there are a good amount of problems, A) Too few levels and the levels that exist are too short. B)Graphics are avg at best and C)the jumping/falling off ledges so frequently gets tiring. But the pro's do outweigh the cons. A) Great sound, B) A deep storyline, C) Cool guns, D) Some of the levels will really make you think. The bottom line is that if you like this game, get the pc version!
Summary: Once again we find Max Payne fighting off his own nightmares and the Mob in order to find peace in his life. Game is almost the exact same as the original with minor changes. Story is very good and keeps you moving along, the sniper levels make this more fun, too bad not that many in the game. If you liked the first game you will love this one.
A Few Problems, But Still Very Fun Sequel to a Great Game.

Summary: If you're a hardcore action fan like me, chances are you've probably heard of Max Payne. It combines elements of John Woo films and film noir graphic novels. Some people may not like the film noir style or graphic novel look, but I think it's very unique and stylish. Now the sequel, Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne, improves on it in every aspect. I understand that of course the game is going to run and look better on Xbox and PC.
