Possibly the best story and atmosphere ever in a video game.
16 September 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Over 5 years in the making, the spiritual successor of Max Payne 1 is a very cinematic game with good narrative and atmosphere. The tutorial may seem lame, but it gets better. The combat mechanics combining firearms and light work well. The graphics are excellent, if not technically, then certainly artistically. This is an xbox port done right, with minimal consolitis, after using the following tweaks: add "-rigidcamera" (no mouse accel) and "-noblur" to the executable's launch commands, and max the FOV and "direct aiming" in the settings). Be sure to play this at night in a quiet room when there is no one else in the house - anything else does not do it justice.
