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.
