Max Payne 2 may only be about 4 years old, but in game years that’s a life time. So can the sequel to a true shooter classic still hold it’s own? For the most part yes. The graphic haven’t aged well at all, but other then that the game is still as fun as it was when it first hit store shelves. Unlike the first Max Payne the controls for the sequel have held up very well. The story is still just as great and memorable as ever. The voice acting is still awesome too. So if you can forgive the dated graphics, do yourself a favor and rent this game, I don’t think you will be sorry.
Max Payne 2 is a great tile with a very well done story and a simple to use control scheme where no matter who you are you can make some really cool moves in the matter of seconds. The gameplay is simple and the death animations are truly where this game shines. The ragdoll truly makes this game! And with out it the game would not be the same. The problems here are no online multiplayer, the single player should have been longer, and more areas in the single player should have had more enemies. Also the level design is down decent but they could have Incorporated more areas with more obstacles and ledges where the ragdoll and slow motion effects really could have shined!
This game is still very much worth the rent! And it has a lot of different content to play when your done!
