OT: Game Review: Max Payne 2


Ok, I picked this game up the day it came out (I pre-ordered it in full when it was first announced). For those of you that played the first one, you are in for a treat with this one.

Let's get the easy stuff out of the way:

Yes, it has amazing graphics. The character models are excellent, and the dead bodies react to their enviroment disturbingly realistic. The controls are just as great as the first, and bullet time is still awesome -- But with a bonus feature.

The storyline is by far the best storyline I've ever played in a game, mainly because this game is 100% adult orientated (lots of F-Bombs dropped, and some mild nudity, but not in a porn way, rather an art way). The chemistry that bonds between Max and Mona is nothing short of Soap Opera quality. The voice-acting is incredible, especially between Max and Mona. They also took the "What's that smell?" look offa Max Payne's face, and gave him more of a "Sylvester Stallone Hard-Ass" look.

I strongly recommend playing this game, but only if you've played the first one.

Thanks for reading, and I hope you like this game as much as I did. This is the 2nd best game I've ever played in my life, and I hope you feel the same.
