    Max Payne 2 is truly one of the best games ever made. The storyline, graphics and gameplay what more is there to ask?

    Once again Max Payne series was introduced to me by a friend. I couldn't believe that I got into gaming so late and all these classics missed out. Anyway, even after 6 years Max Payne 2 still stands a...

    Max Payne is stylish, but the bullet time thing feels like a gimmick to jazz up an otherwise average game. The dialogue made me think I was playing Max Metaphor. "Death is like ...." the "The pas...

    I don't often give a perfect score, in fact, I don't think I ever have, but this, my friends, is a perfect game. Every nitty gritty noir-ness of the first game is there, and more. I've played for abo...

    If there was a third person shooter out there that did it right, it would be Max Payne 2. This is by far the best shooter I have played yet. The graphics alone just blew me away! So much detail in the...
