Title
Tem uma história mais satisfatória e aprimora o gameplay em relação ao primeiro. Impressiona a qualidade da dublagem e o seu aspecto cinematográfico, tem poucos jogos como ele até a sua época, em especial no gênero de ação. Ainda não parece ser a Remedy em seu melhor momento, mas gostei bastante.

Title
arguably enhanced everything about the original, but I don't really like it as much. for some reason the level design isn't quite as memorable, and I honestly don't really enjoy the mona sax storyline, its quite cliche and gross for me. but yes the gunplay is really fun and beating the game can be a challenge. good times.

7.5/10

Title
I don't feel Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne has aged well, nor have the shooting mechanics borne any true influence over the 3rd Person Shooter genre (Gears of War is somehow the title the majority of people associated with the genre).

The most important features of this game are its narration techniques (the voice overs, psychedelic dream sequences, the comic strips, etc.) and James McCaffrey's voice.

Title
The "film noir love story" is arguably so much more ham-fisted than the first, without a proper carry-on of the resolution of the first game, but it still has its moments and a so obviously Pyrrhic atmosphere, and remains engaging throughout. The level design also suffers a tad but not to any truly detrimental degree, and the overall package is way more sound, with far better integration of cutscenes, gameplay and dialogue. It's about as good as the first as a result.

Title
Back for more donuts
I found the second Max Payne game a let down compared to the first one, but it still holds up as a very competent third person shooter nowadays.

The story follows after the first game, with max being hunted down and develops a volotile relationship with Mona. Now without spoiling anything, i will say that the story of the first game is way more emotional and in a sense predictable as well. In this one, i could never guess of where the story was going to take me next due to the unpredictability of the main characters. At the same time i felt that it lacked punch. Max had already had his revenge, and i didnt felt that much attachment to Mona. Still, i liked that they went for a bold new direction with the plot. Its a much more serious and heavy game than the first one, lacking the comedic edge that made the first so memorable. Its not totally gone, it still has comic style panels for cutscenes, but there are no more funny looking faces.

Gameplaywise its very similar to the first. There have been some minute changes as to how the projectiles and bullet time functions, but these are very minor and i didnt feel that much of an impact on the gameplay. Its still third person shooting at its more stylish, even after all this time. The inclusion of escort missions though made the actual level design less enjoyable, though it did add variety. Gone are the nightmare platforming levels, thankfully as they wont be missed.

Overal i didnt like this one as much as the first, but its still a great ride from beginning to end, and essencial third person shooting with a great story to boot. Its a series that offers a type of atmosphere rarely seen in games as well, so it maybe worth playing for that.

    Rockstar is currently working on re-releasing Max Payne 1 & 2 with Max Payne 3 and other modern TPS mechanics. Hopefully it won't be a disaster like the botched GTA 3/Vice City/San Andreas re-releases

    Even though it is better than 1 slightly it still feels like it has the same issues I have with 1 from a gameplay perspective. Too much enemy spam, the camera is wonky, no side swap, and the bullet-time still feels off.
