STAFF REVIEW of Max Payne (Xbox)

Max Payne Box art Solid game :) Shooters are one of my favorite genres and Max Payne is no exception. The graphics are great...this is a direct PC port, but in my opinion and eventhough I have never played Max Payne on a PC, this game was made for the XBox console. Sounds, graphics, story-line...great stuff! Now I just need surround sound :)


Gameplay is amazingly good. It's as if the XBox controller was specifically designed to play this game. I couldn't imagine playing the PC version with a mouse and keyboard when you could use the XBox controller. I would imagine that even the most anti-XBox controller fans would even agree that the XBox controller was made to play this game! Exceptional!!!


Visually, the game is great! The graphics are solid...you get the feel that it is a dark time...perfect for letting out your agression after a bad day at the office or at school. Everything you would expect from the #1 hit PC game of last year.


Great sounds...when Max Payne walks, he makes footstep sounds and they differ from the type of floor or ground he is walking on. Also, when I first shot the shot-gun, I thought someone was shooting outside! That puppy sounds amazing! And, yes, I figured out I had to turn my volume down a tad :) Enemies share conversations, the storyline is great and you can read while you listen (they say the same things)...great sounds on this one.


Suggestions:
I am looking forward to a sequel...and one thing I would hope would be a multiplayer frag mode :)


Overall: 9.0 / 10
Gameplay: 10.0 / 10
Visuals: 9.0 / 10
Sound: 9.0 / 10
