Developed by: Remedy Entertainment - Rockstar Games (2003) - Third-Person 3D Shooter - Rated: Mature
Finnish developer Remedy Entertainment's embittered vigilante cop has put his troubled past behind him and is ready to begin a
new chapter in his life with Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne. The stylized third-person shooter, which initially turned heads
with its combination of gritty environments, film noir style, and use of bullet-time effects for dramatic shootouts, returns with an
enhanced graphic engine and completely new storyline. The Fall of Max Payne chronicles the title character's romance with a
sultry siren named Mona Sax. Things are never easy for Payne, however, as Sax just so happens to be a murder suspect who leads
him down a dark path from which he may be unable to walk away from.
The new graphic engine allows for motion-captured movement, facial animation from a cast of professional actors, lip-synching,
new lighting techniques, a rag doll physics model using the licensed Havok development kit, and redesigned 3D characters. Players
will walk through cities as rain splashes down onto the streets with puddles reflecting the glow of neon signs, streetlights, and
other details of urban life. The groundbreaking use of bullet time effects for slow-motion combat has been redesigned to
incorporate different rates of speed for more theatrical gunplay. Max Payne is now a member of the NYPD, so missions involve
interrogating prisoners, speaking with witnesses, and more.
From the Manufacturer: In 2001, Max Payne arrived to set the benchmark for action gaming, earning countless awards and
revolutionizing the genre with cinematic combat sequences fuelled by the groundbreaking use of slow motion and compulsive
narrative-driven gameplay. Now, working together with Rockstar Games' New York-based production team, Remedy has
combined Max Payne's hallmark gameplay with all new innovations and unmatched production values. Max Payne 2: The Fall of
Max Payne has raised the bar for action games all over again.
