There are also enough good new games among the usual current junk. Just think on Gothic 1 + 2 and Warcraft III, of those I played and know.
But let's not get off topic too far.

I played the first one, but starting from the scene where there's 3 guys behind a table I had to enable the cheats to pass. I guess I'm not a good FPS-player

Hmm..

Max Payne was a really easy FPS game...

Just make sure you always have enough bullet time :angel:

Max Payne is not a FPS. It's not FIRST after all. It's a Third Person Shooter (TPS). Max Payne was difficult at times but I never needed to use a cheat. Max Payne 2 was a breeze. Good story kept me interrested in both games and I will replay both on my new computer. Too bad the guns in MP are not as interresting as in MP2.

I MP2 there was a great case where you need to defend that guy in the clown suit...that was maybe the most difficult part in the game (the bad guys came from all sides) but really a great action time there...

And maybe MP is a TPS but for me it felt like a FPS...the gameplay is most of the time the same as in a FPS...you never get really platform tricks what is normally in TPS games...

Yeah that's true but Bullet time would not work as well if the optic would be First person. The Clown thing was a laugh and not as difficult for me as it was for you I guess. I only died twice. Maybe we use different tactics. For the most part I let the bad guys come to me and when the are turning the corner I am standing behind I jump out in bullet time as shoot them. I was nearly dead when I sped away from that level.
The most difficult part of the game for me was when I was Mona and I had to cover Max from the scafolding. Max died about fifteen times before I finished that level. I am a lone wolf I think. I work best when I don't have to think about others.

LOL...that's also a difficult part but the trick is:

Focus on the men closest to Max, first those 3 guys and then later step by step the others who are coming for Max...dont go to fast looking for others..

But maybe it's time to play it again...still a great game :angel:

About that clown guy. It took me about half a day to do that level. From the start I didn't really care how much he got hit then I kept saving it. By the time I got near the end (just outside the garage), if he got hit once no matter how small the damage the game was over, I didn't feel like starting the level over again so I had to keep going, it was so hard.

Heh, Mona died and that's it. Story of Max Payne is ment to be dark and heavy, not like in hollywood movies. I really should support remedy by buying those games (I bought MP1 to xbox but I sold my xbox) since they are really good and made by few finnish guys who make games.

Yeah Mona will likely not come back but that really hurts to admit it.
