Trivia

In Part 1, Chapter 6: The posters at the fun house give the website address www.addressunknown.tv (it's impossible to see in the Playstation 2 version as the graphics are not razor-sharp, photo-realistic like in the PC version). Typing it into your web browser takes you to the official Max Payne 2 website. See more »

Goofs

While in the derelict building as Mona, a number of signs display the word "authorised" spelled in UK English even though the game takes place in the United States. See more »

Just As Good As The Original(review for PC and PS2 version)
26 July 2006 | by gangstahippieSee all my reviews

Rated M for Strong Violence,Blood,Language and Sexual Content.

Max Payne 2 The Fall Of Max Payne is the 2003 sequel to the 2001 hit game Max Payne.In my opinion Max Payne 2 is just as good as the first.I actually played this game before the original.There isn't much of an improvement in the sequel.The graphics are a tiny bit better but other than that its the same as the first.But the first one was good and so was this one.Don't be fooled by the romantic looking cover just like the first Max Payne this one has plenty of blood and violence(and the ability to kill in slow motion) but unlike the first one this one contains more profanity including some f-words.The PC version of the game is amazing.The PS2 version on the other hand is not that amazing.When I got a PS2,I got Max Payne 2.I remembered it being awesome on the PC.The PS2 version is not a very good port.The graphics are worse and the bullettime is for some reason in black and white.However, if you never played the PC version, you will like the PS2 version.I heard Max Payne 1 is good on the PS2 and I will get that one as well.Max Payne 2 is an excellent sequel despite little improvement over the first one.I recommend both!

10/10
