Goofs

The entire game takes place in the US, yet at least twice in the game we can see safety signs that say "no unauthorised persons beyond this point" (the common UK spelling of "unauthorized"). See more »

Quotes

Max Payne: [Narrating] Alex and I had a few moments of glory between us. Crime fighting comrades, the best in NYPD-DEA collaborative team... Good-hearted macho bullshit like that. I would have given anything to have him here as my back up. No such luck. No luck at all.

User Reviews

One of the best action games for PS2.
3 November 2002 | by (Aryshie, Scotland) – See all my reviews

This is a great shooter made by Rockstar. If you love games like James Bond: Agent Under Fire, Metal Gear Solid one and two or Dead to Rights this will definitely suit your bill. It has great gameplay, long replay value, nice graphics, and everything else a gamer who likes a shooting game or even if you have played a shooting game in your life you will love this game. It is definitely a must buy and a great game to add to your video game collection because it quite simply one of the best third person shooting games of all time.
