This is a well-written game with great voice acting. The story is good, but a little too dramatic. The graphics are dated, and the controls are hard to get used to. I encountered a few glitches. Max would run to the wrong area during a cut-scene, or the game wouldn't load. Also, the game is pretty difficult. In closing, the game is fun to play, but has a few issues.
Ok so, the realistic qualities of this game is amazing, but the aiming system in it really sucks. I have died time and time again because of the really poor targting/aiming system this has, you have to move the right joystick in order to aim at an enemie, I hate that. Another flaw is how you have all these physically impossible obstacles you have to get by as you get further in the game. Max Payne himself is very badass, and you get to see the side of New York noone even wants to mention.
