I have played Max Payne on the computer before, but I wanted to play it again. Because I no longer have a computer, i decided to try it on the PS2. It is awful. I love the story, but the controls are sloppy, the graphics aren't very good, the camera is jerky, and the game gives me a headache. I can't play the game fore more than twenty minutes before I begin to get a headache and get sick. It took so much time for me to figure out exactly how I needed the controls so it would be easier to play. Not only is the camera jerky, but the movements are very jerky and the game occasionally lags. I absolutely love the story. It was well written and I like how they presented it in almost a comic book style in between levels, but I just can't deal with the rest. The game isn't really hard to play once you tweak the controls, but it's not exactly a good port. If you want to play this game then I recommend getting it for the computer. The PS2 version just isn't very good.

i lost interest way too fast! i couldnt beat it without cheats, and the controls are broken! especially the jumping! the story is just way too repetetive infact i got bored after the 2nd level! at first i thought i picked up a great game! but instead i beat it in 45 minutes! no joke! this game is just boring as heck, and i guess im going to have to see the movie thats coming out next year to actually see something cool. the gameplay got boring after 30 minutes! the ending was just pure nothingness! why is it that every game thats boring ends up getting great ratings??? i dont think ill like any highly rated game or movie!!!! max payne?? MAX POO!! im sending this back right now!
