Very Good

Good, in some ways

Okay, max payne 2 is a good game, but its not as dark and creepy as the first one, at all. Not to mention, not as bloody. I really wasnt much for the mona sax relationship in the game, though the end of the relationship was a little depressing. I really like the rag doll effects in the game, but the effects arent too sensitive. I like how the game doesent have much of the comic book shots in the game, a lot of it is just moving, your not exacally looking for clues in this one, like the first max payne. I also thought the cartoony stuff in the game, dident work too well, not in max payne, but some of it was good. As in the transfer to the PS2, not to good, you have to keep going to the main menu to save, or start over.

Its very hard for me to say which max payne is better. The second max payne, is good in a lot of ways, as in some good gameplay. But, the first max payne has a better story, and better feel to it. Basically, they're the same taste, i think.

If you liked the first Max payne you will like this one. It's not as bloody as Max payne 1 but outside of that its more of the same.My only complaint about this game is as with max 1 are the controls and the
camera.Inperticuler the camera it seems to have a mind of it's own at times.

good, but short

I loved the improved graphics, gameplay, physics, and story, but the game is short, but makes it fun.
