4.0 out of 5 stars Max Payne returns... 4 Feb 2004
Max Payne 2 is the kind of satisfying, brain-free blasting action that console gaming was invented for. It's a rain-soaked, noir-styled thriller that follows the titular Payne through yet another life-or-death, intrigue-filled trawl through the seedy, underbelly of New York City. The game's premise is as shallow as it gets, but thanks to the excellent plot and cinematic stylings you'll forgive it's 'shoot, run, shoot' mechanic and learn to appreciate it's no-holds-barred take on the genre.
But, of course, no game is perfect, and Max Payne 2 has it's fair share of flaws. Firstly, it's too damn short. You'll love every minute of it, but when the end arrives you may feel a little short changed. Secondly, the ragdoll physics, although mostly excellent, occasionally glitch and end up looking a bit, well, crap. A shame, as the rest of the game looks stunning. Otherwise, everything's as tight as a drum. Some say the bullet time is flawed, but with proper mastery, wiping out a room full of goons never gets old - especially with a pair of Ingram sub-machine guns in your posession.
Gameplay highlights include the funhouse level based on a TV show that plays throughout the game (an excellent parody of David Lynch's Twin Peaks, I might add), and is gloriously surreal. The hand-drawn sets and cardboard-cut-out characters are sheer genius. In fact, the whole game is one big highlight, and thanks to the Havok physics engine, each playthrough can differ depending on how you interact with the environment. Offed bad guys stumble into chairs, fall over balconies and get their limbs caught on stuff - it's completely overblown and unrealistic, as is the nature of the game.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not an improvement 11 Jun 2004
By Simon Daultrey VINE VOICE
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. It's about Max's love-affair with a (female) criminal. The story-line of Max Payne was far better thought-out.
Max Payne 2 is also way, way too short, which is a great disappointment because Max Payne was lengthy, and kept you playing because it's story-line was so gripping and intense.
However, it's not all bad - The Fall of Max Payne has the same beautiful graphic quality and rendering as it's predecessor, although some textures are bit low-quality.
The environments are nicely designed, and very interactive, in as much as any small boxes, bottles, general stuff that you run into, will move. But you can't shoot boxes open any more!
None of the areas of the game are particularly based on strategy, and when they are, it's pretty obvious what to do, which is probably partly responsible for it being so short.
The weapons are similar, the physics are the same, the bullet-time is still cool, and if you're after something to satisfy the simple desire to run through a game and blast the enemy with round after round of gunfire, then this will be the best thing for it.
The violence level is just the same, with the added spice of regular extreme language, and 'scenes of a sexual nature' as the cencorship people put it......which was a bit of a surprise!
Not the best, but worth trying.

4.0 out of 5 stars Max is back! 8 Jan 2004
This game has a style all of its own! from the graphics(which are great!) to dark comic book style cut scenes.You play the part of Max Payne a tough new york cop on various story based levels.
The game has one great feature which is bullet time! this allows you to slow time down as you dive through doorways to take out bad guys, as well as rolling and spinning through the air.
All the items in the game work on a good physics model so chairs and boxs fly through the air during explosions and doors blow off hinges!, Also all the characters have rag doll physics which means when shot they fall in a life like manner with arms and legs flailing.
The graphics on this game are great and its as much fun to watch as to play so if you like shooters and enjoyed the first game give it a go!.

4.0 out of 5 stars More fun than you can shake a stick at. 17 Dec 2003
This game has one down side and that is it's length. It took about a day to finish (but that was playing non stop). The pro's certainly out weight that one con.
The game looks amazing, plays amazing, every bullet time move looks so good (if you like John Woo Movies you'll love the action in this).
Even though I have finished the game the reply value is huge, it has varying difficulties and timed levels.
If you like action games with lots of guns then you should buy this game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Max Payne - Max Fun! 17 Dec 2003
I bought this game for my husband but i enjoyed it too! We have the first one and it was just as great as all the reviews said. But Max Payne 2 is even better!! It's just like the first, but without the wierd jumpy bit with the annoying crying baby... excellent graphics, great storyline, enough strangeness to keep you guessing, and best improvement of all: you can save the thing!!!! So i would definitely recommend this game - only drawback: It's too SHORT! :o)
