In Part 1, Chapter 2 ("One Way Or The Other" Playstation 2 level): Right at the beginning, there is a hole in the bricks in the wall. Cheat yourself a grenade and throw it in. Your mission objectives now say "I had declared a war against rats" (the Playstation 2 version has no Mission Objectives screen, but if you chuck a few grenades in the hole the trick will still work). A bit later, after walking through some water and taking out a few enemies on a train platform, walk up the wide stairs. In the room at the top are a bunch of rats with Desert Eagles fused to their bodies! In the PC version, you can apparently do the following: Shoot one of the ceiling lamps, hit the base of the lamp and it will fall. The rats will now battle each other. If "your" side wins, the remaining rats will take up defensive positions around you. If your side loses, the remaining rats will come after you. See more
A .50 AE caliber Desert Eagle holds 8 rounds (7 in the magazine 1 in the chamber), not 12. See more
Pleased to meet ya. I'm Frankie "the Bat" Niagara.
"Niagara," as in you cry a lot?
He had a baseball bat and I was tied to a chair. Pissing him off was the smart thing to do.
After the credits, when you complete the game, the following text appears on the screen: Max Payne has only started his journey through the night. The pain has only just begun. More will follow. See more
