Not stricktly speaking old but this is the only part of the site I could place it.

I purchased both this week and have finished them both now. Max Payne in three days, Max Payne 2 in a single day. Appart from being too short these games are great. Gripping story (especially 2), funny at times and both are "lookers". The only thing that turned my stomage was when Mona died in the end of part two and of course seeing that little hand stick out from under the blanked in the proluege of one.
Mona is now my all time favorite female game character. I do hope they cheat a little and bring her back in part 3 (part three has been confirmed). The best part of Max Payne 2 was when you finally got your hands on Mona in a level.
It surprised me how well part 2 runs on my computer. I would have expected it to be very choppy or not at all good to look at but fortunatly it was neither (and that is with a GF2MX400 32MB card).
Anyone else play these games?

I have the demos of both and have played the full versions of both around friends' houses. I found part 1 much harder than part 2, I could breeze through part 2 and it was a hell of lot of fun. Part 1 I found really hard and I kept dieing on the first level (especially that bit where you have to go into that locked room and there are three enemies inside with shotguns...).

P.S. The colour tags in the title are broken.

I have played both. First I didn't finish, I couldn't stand running around killing hobo's got kind of boring. Second is one of the best games I have ever played, finished it twice. Second has some very nice guns too. I have to admit the first time you hear his voice it doesn't sound very pleasing but after a while you get used to it and I think it sounds cool now. Favourite charcter is the Evil Russian dude you kill at the end, can't remember his name.

I have the same graphic card!

When played this game, I used bullet time on this way:
- bullet time on
- I aim (with MP5)
- first bullet goes to head of first guy, second bullet to the head of second guy, and third to third! k:
- bullet time off

I used to kill three of bad guys in one bullet time!


Also when you kill guy (there are few of them), and you can see in slow-motion how he's falling, save before killing him, and kill him in most different ways (the best thing is to drop the bomb under his a**).

The end of the game is similar in both games - you have to kill bad guy by shoting at some wires or something other then in bad guy directly.

I got first one on PS2 and it's nice, but kind of short. I heard that 2nd part is even shorter, but never bought it.

Mona's gun is not all that is nice about Mona . She is so much more of a computer babe then Lara Croft ever was.

After all, I still think old dos games (especially adventures) are way much better than any new game!
