Max Payne: 5 Reasons to Replay

1

Max’s opening words: “They were all dead. The final gunshot was an exclamation mark to everything that had led to this point.” Tone well and truly set.

2
It was as unlikely then as it is now that you’d get bored of shooting mob thugs in the neck in slow motion.

3
The setting of a city besieged by a blizzard = atmospheric perfection. It just wouldn’t have felt the same on a wussy spring morning.

4
The double delight of all those brilliantly plummy hard-boiled clichés and veteran Max voice actor James McCaffrey’s gravelly delivery.

5
No multiplayer, but the Dead On Arrival and New York Minute modes made Max’s two-way manhunt even more ferocious.
