Summary: Max Payne 2 has everything Max Payne 1 had, but it seems watered down a lot. The controls are perfect and have been improved, but all other aspects of the game are a disappointment. The storyline really sucks. Unnecessarily complicated and yet predictable at the same time. It's totally unengaging, the compelling urge of mysteries to be unraveled from Max Payne 1 is completely gone. The gameplay is not as bad, but still worse than Max Payne 1.
Summary: I got this game 2 days ago. Cumulatively, I have played on it for about five hours and completed it. I was a huge fan of Max Payne when it came out 3 or 4 years ago, and if you've not tried either before then I'd definitely recommend saving your money and getting the first one - it was better in so many ways. The Fall Of Max Payne is overshadowed by the original in the story-line region - basically, it's strange, it's a bit confusing, and frankly pointless.
