Three years ago a young NYPD cop, Max Payne, came home one night to find his family senselessly slaughtered by a gang of drug-crazed junkies high on a previously unknown synthetic drug.
Now that same drug, Valkyr, has spread through the whole New York City like a nightmare plague, and Max Payne's on a crusade for revenge, out to get even.
The drug hit the city like a bad dream, turning it into a hell on earth. More corpses lie in the streets than there are demons in the real thing, and hordes of Valkyr-head junkies are on an insane killing spree, their eyes burning with mad green fire.
To the Drug Enforcement Administration, DEA, this new drug was evil incarnate, to be stopped at any cost. They placed an undercover agent into the ranks of a NY Mafia family that appears to be behind the distribution of the drug.
Desperate times call for desperate measures.
Max Payne, now a DEA special agent, is a man with nothing to lose. He goes to work undercover among the dirtiest
