Outstanding, better than movies
1 March 2003 | by See all my reviews

Definitely the best game ever. The plot is just brilliant, even better than most movies. One can really care about the title character, Max Payne, and be moved by the story. Outstanding graphics, awesome gameplay generates new style and new genre. I played this game so many times, I could play any level with my eyes closed and don't get hurt a bit, and I still enjoy it better than any other action game. What makes it even better is that Max is voiced by James McCaffrey - I believe Max Payne, both the game and the character, wouldn't have been the same without McCaffrey's incredible, dark voice. I'd suggest him to give up acting and start a new career in the PC games industry :)

I just can't wait for Max Payne 2!
