“A troubled NYPD cop is framed for murder finds himself being hunted by the police, the mob, and a ruthless corporation”- IMDB one-liner says it all about the game play and its gruesome plot. It is a game about a man named Max Payne, who has nothing to lose as his family is already dead. Emotions are on a soar as the heart of this lead is filled with grievance and vengeance but should be on a run since he is being chased by three different groups of people, all wanting him dead. The game is shown in a cleverly structures storyline with easily comprehendible self-explanatory videos which makes you feel the pain and act like a pissed off Max Payne would do.
The surroundings, ambience and graphics look realistic at the same time, not requiring any high end hardware to support the functioning of its VFX. The moves of this lad are ambitious and elegant, giving it a Matrix feel to the gamers with his slow motion shooting capabilities. The splashing and oozing of blood through areas shot are magnificent. The game is designed for players who like strategic advancement and little details which sometimes are very vital to know are not neglected. The sound is quite engrossing and helps you get into the feel of the game. Max Payne is the most under rated game ever, but this does not deny its’ aficionados from loving and playing it. Many of us have grown up playing this game and can never ever get it out of our fond memory.
