Blows shoot 'em up's out of the water
on 7 May 2002
There have been a number of comparisons to middle of the road, fairly mindless 1st person shoot 'em ups. Missing the point is a mild way to express my point of view.
Simply put, Max Payne is Goldeneye for adults. It is thick with plot and the experience plays somewhere betwen a game and a movie. It's less about enjoying bashing a key pad and more about enjoying an interactive story line.
Bullet time is a fantastic addition to the art of video gaming and I hope I see a lot more of it. If you have ever seen a John Woo film and enjoyed it, you will be particularly impressed when you see one of the bad guys spend a few fractions of a second frozen in time as you riddle his body with 100 rounds from your duel ingrams.
They say they are talking about making a film based on this game. Until then, I'm happy playing my way through it myself and dishing out the revenge.
Feel the Payne.
