  • Excerpt: First published by Gathering of Developers (GOD) on the PC, Max Payne deals with touching subjects like graphic violence, explicit drug use, and demonology. Nothing is handled with any tact, either, instead opting to throw everything in the player’s face.

  • Excerpt: So many games are being rehashed these days, and so few of them actually offer anything beyond what the original incarnation of the game offered. In fact, a good percentage of those titles being ported over to NextGEN systems are actually inferior to the original!

The Next Level
27 February 2002
  • Excerpt: The game of course, gained fame for two reasons: Bullet-time, and for refining the process of in-game story-telling to a level of detail never seen before. Now I don't mean that in a, "Oh my God, look at those cinemas!" manner, or anything like that.

  • Conclusion: Unfortunately though, like so many other GBA titles, Max Payne is desperately short. Even if you get caught up in Cold Steel for an hour or so as I did, you can still expect to vanquish your enemies in a final rooftop showdown inside five hours.

  • Summary: "I guess I have become spoiled on the Xbox thanks to Halo and its great fun gameplay, superb graphics and sound and while Max certainly some good graphics it doesn't have the gameplay" "Graphically Max Payne looks just like it did on a GeForce 3 powered PC running in high quality mode.
  • Pros: Good graphics, Great bullet time, Solid frame rate, Fun action
  • Cons: Repetitive

  • Conclusion: Die 4 langen Jahre der Entwicklungszeit klingen beinahe nach einem John Romero-Fiasko ohne Happy End. Doch weit gefehlt! Die finnische Programmierschmiede Remedy und Produzent 3D Realms haben sich zurecht viel Zeit gelassen, um aus Max Payne ein Singleplayer-Erlebnis der Extraklasse zu erschaffen.

  • Conclusion: Du är Max Payne, en amerikansk undercoverpolis med en skrovlig röst. Du är hårt märkt av din familjs brutala nedslaktning för tre år sedan. Sen dess har Max arbetat nära inpå kriminaliteten, genom att gå undercover och därmed infiltrera sig i den kriminella miljön i New York.
