Max Payne, with more pain than ever!Nova4 | Nov. 6, 2013 | See all Nova4's reviews »
Max Payne 2 is a strong sequel of one of my favorites games of all time, the storyline is awesome, rockstar improved the bullet time mechanics and it looks beatifull ar full graphics, but... some times the game feels full or pointless pools of enemiges and the game sometimes try to be funny without reason. Is a great game, a must buy, but beaware this is not max payne 1 with all the awesomes of it.

While this game is fantastic on its own, it's really just more of the same of Max Payne 1, but with better technology driving it. The voice acting is still top notch, the graphics are wonderful, and the technical gameplay (shooting, dodging) is also great. But it's not that much of an improvement over the first game, it's more like a perfect sequel instead. The story is equally as enthralling and full of twists, but it doesn't really add that much more to it - which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Adding the romantic character, and being able to use her too, was a great mechanic to the overall narration.
I want to give a full 100, but because it doesn't really do anything new from the first game, I just don't feel like I can give it a perfect score. I understand that this is a heavily story driven game, but I felt that Remedy could have introduced some more new mechanics and features to really take this game to the next level.
Even better than the originalHighlander9782 | Oct. 27, 2013 | See all Highlander9782's reviews »
Hard to outdo the original classic but this adds better graphics that are still great today, better gunplay and a equally great story. They refined nad polished everything that made the first one so good and added lethal love interest for Max named Mona. The gritty atmosphere, great narration and comic book style visuals are back here as well. You can't go wrong with this game, definite buy.
Just as good as the firstKalmado | Oct. 26, 2013 | See all Kalmado's reviews »
Max Payne 2 delivers just as much as the original. Going through his struggles again gives the sensation of living through a man that cannot catcha break but will always fight for what he believes in. Voice acting is amazing and on point as is the music. Visually this was a great achievement for it's time. The story again is top notch and completing it will leave the player satisfied. If you owned the first and enjoyed it, this is a must have.

Max Payne 2 is a brillinat sequel to the already great game Max Payne 1. The graphics have been updated and the human models look considerably more three dimentional and the enviroments also look much more realistic. The sounds have also been much improved and the game adds lots more impressive voice acting and new gun sounds and musical, moody, soundtrack. Much of the core game mechanics have not been changed and bullet time remains as fun as it was before. The controls have been improved and the overall feel of the game is better also.
