4.0 out of 5 stars The real McCoy, 11 Dec 2005
This review is from: Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne (PC CD) (Video Game)
I'd played around with Rockstar games among others, but as a pensioner, have little interest in the bang-bang kids' games. However, after reading a rave review in PC Advisor about this game, I bought a s/h copy. After updating my old PC to play it, I was swept away by this violent, dark, short game. I could have wept at the end. Yes, it is brutal, in a way it trivialises killing, but what atmosphere. I could have been back in Manhattan for the settings were just as I've experienced around the upper West and East side streets. The realism and sheer cleverness is impressive. Likely to become a classic. It deserves it. 4 stars because of it's short length, but long enough to leave you breathless and gasping for more. A minor masterpiece of film noire. Poor Max, and that lovely girl...........
