It's been a long time since Max Payne ruled my PS2, but I miss the old Payne. It's visually very good. The story is fun and I like the cut scenes. The game play is what ruined it for me. Sooo many issues. The worst. Getting into a gun fight and then.... Black screen.... All the enemies would be dead. Pain pills magically disapearing???? The white aim dot. Not the best idea when it blends into the background a lot. Movement. Not the best.
Bullet time..... Still awesome!!! Especially the last bullet cam.
A brutal game that can be fun at times, and at others, Rage quit. Some very satisfying moments. They really put some effort into the graphics, story, and mood of the game, but left the game play quite a bit below that of others.
I recommend people give it a rent. It's worth deciding for yourself.

I enjoyed game play and is a game I had to play from start to finish. The only reason I did not rate higher is due to the fact that the online play is great when it worked. I experienced a lot of trouble trying to get into games and not due to my connection which works almost flawlessly with every other game I play online.
