So i recently revisited Max payne series and replayed them again. all 3 games. Original is still masterpeice dispite its visuals are aged. then went to Max payne 2. I remember long ago i was so disappointed by this game as it was inferior to original in every way except it has nice physics. its level design is far worse, its atmosphere is less gritty and dark, gameplay was step back as it has automatic bullet time mechanics instead of gain bullet time by killing enemies, story is worse as max is no longer lone revenge thrusting, he is nypd detective which feel generic to me and have shitty love story except ending was awesom. even soundtrack are worse except main theme.
It make me realize that why this game getting so much loved when its shorter than original, easier, more simple and have less atmosphere??
Many people think Max payne 3 is worst in series. even i initially didnot liked it at first but i gave it second try and loved it. it has better story than 2, bring back original bullettime mechanics and most challenging game in series too. cant say same about MP2 which is enjoyable game but worst in series by far. The way i see, its in the category of Deus Ex IW, FEAR 2 and Crysis 2.
so what you think my friends? lets discuss
