Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne,
This review is from: Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne (PS2) (Video Game)Looking much better than 2001's Max Payne, Max Payne 2 is a witty, exciting and gritty film-noir actioner with a diverting storyline that continues from where the original left off.
Its much improved and very moody visuals help set the scene as fugitive detective Max Payne goes through the motions as he sets on a life-discovering and dangerous quest, filled with double-crosses, femme fatales, ruthless killers and some much-needed humour. The gun-ho Matrix-style gameplay's back and this time looks flashier than ever with its 'Bullet-Time' FX and splendid acrobatics.
Sadly though, it's heavily marred with an irritating camera and some clumsy platforming sections that becomes very frustrating, if you haven't got the patience, but other than that, MP2 is a thoroughly diverting game and is definitely a purchase.
