Book Description

15 Nov 2001 Bradygames Strategy Guides

Max Payne for PlayStation 2 is the same third-person action shooter game based in New York's grimy underworld, for the PlayStation 2 console. Gamers follow Max, the undercover cop, in a complex story of murder and deception. The high-intensity gunplay combined with realistic particle physics and moment-to-moment movie sequences illuminate the action and take gaming realism to new heights. "Bullet time" first introduced in the blockbuster movie, The Matrix, plays a key part in the game. When gamers perform certain dives or rolls, they can slow time, which offers a great advantage in battle. Not final cover.

3.0 out of 5 stars MAX PAYNE STRATEGY GUIDE 7 Dec 2001
By A Customer
Well i bought this book for the PC and wasnt that impressed, to be honest the game is not that difficult to complete without the book. However saying that, there are a few sections where the book comes in very handy and the tips that it gives allow you to quickly progress to the next stage of the game. I can assure you that there is nothing worse then runiing around a level for 10 minutes lookign for the exit, its gets very annoying.
Final verdict, a good buy if you are looking to complete the game extremely quickly, but no essential to finish the game.

4.0 out of 5 stars To the MAX 8 May 2002
By Blank Blank - Published on Amazon.com
When you play Max Payne one of the first things you might notice is the way the blood splatters. It is very cool and this is where the Max Payne(TM) Official Strategy Guide comes into play. It shows you how to get the most from your weapons, whats the best way to take out the bad guys(SPLATTER), and most important when to do that MATRIX-type effect that you can only do on MAX PAYNE.
Trust me with this guide you will get the max out of your MAX PAYNE. You just can't go wrong.

2.0 out of 5 stars Different from Mac version 5 Oct 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book is composed of hard to see screenshots with commentary. The screenshots and descriptions are quite different form the Mac OS X version. It was somewhat helpfull but there are sites online that do a better job.
