5.0 out of 5 stars Simply... a great game, 27 Aug. 2001
This review is from: Max Payne (PC CD) (Video Game)
I was sceptical about buying Max Payne, as the only FPS games i normally enjoy are ones with strong rpg elements (hint - Deus Ex). But, after i had purchased Max Payne... wow. Apart from being an incredible shooter, the game is advanced with an involving and interesting gangster themed story, and although your part is made up entirely of shooting things, you feel involved, and even better, you feel cool. And you feel cool because you are an excellent super-hero type, who packs a mean punch, and tends to shoot first and ask questions later. And then there's bullet time.. which just seals the deal, for me, anyway. When you enter a room full of crooks who all suddenly draw their guns, you get to snazzily leap over the table in slow motion, shooting stuff with perfect accuracy. The artistic quality of bullet time is also used, with slow motion enemy deaths occuring, and some critical points being highlighted by the slowing down treatment.
The best bit for me, though, was reaching the top of the hotel near the beginning of the game, when a group of bad guys suddenly burst out of nowhere and chucked all sorts of grenades at me. I got to leap, in bullet time, backwards, off a balcony, all the while shooting them, and watching everything explode... You know, i'd buy the game just for that experience alone...
