Review

This download is the second release of the Max Payne saga. In Max Payne 2 the storyline has changed a bit: your character wakes up in a hospital being quite wounded, and immediately after he is discharged, he is attacked again and a friend of him is being shot too. As in the previous installments of this saga, in Max Payne 2 you are still looking for the murderer of your family, but now you are also investigating a series of crimes committed by "The Cleaners"; a new task that will lead you to an amazing adventure throughout this PC game.

This installment has experienced several improvements regarding its antecessor. Apart from the enhanced graphics, whether on the Comic Panels of the cut scenes or along the gameplay, the Polygon Count has been raised, providing more advanced face expressions or characters’ realism over the background. The more noticeable graphics improvement of Max Payne 2 can be seen on Max's lucid dreams, in which all the set is blurry and out of focus, making as if it was a hypnosis experience.

A walk through this third-person shooter

In Max Payne 2, you will start just with a small weapon, a 9mm pistol, but you will get more and more advanced ones as you move forward on the gameplay. In the weapons category you will find sniper rifles, shotguns, submachine guns and projectile weapons. You will be told what to do along the storyline thanks to Max’s internal thoughts, which will guide you in the adventure.

Besides, you can activate the Bullet Time option, in which the time decelerates and the screen turns to sepia color. In this time you will be able to shoot, or decide what to do next. The Bullet Time is not permanent and it is limited to a short period of time. In addition, two game modes are enabled: the "Dead Man Walking” that consists of an endless attack of enemies to which you must survive as long as possible, and the "New york Minute", in which you play the level in a time trial.
