    dkirschner's Max Payne (PS2)

    [June 13, 2011 06:25:37 AM]
    I figure I should write up a quick note on this, since I did play it about an hour. I remember watching friends play Max Payne years ago and remember all the praise it received when it came out. I always wanted to play through it myself, so bought a copy for PS2 last year. How excited was I to finally try it out! How disappointed was I when I realized it's all but unplayable on PS2! I had no idea it was like a port of a port on PS2. The frame rate is horrible, which also could be the newer big TV too, I dunno, but it makes it so I can't play. Aiming is really hard. The cursor makes huge jumps with the slightest tap of the joystick. Movement is really choppy and sluggish.

    But the game is so intriguing! I can tell it would be fun, if only I could play! It's a total 'badass cop' kind of thing, Max being out to avenge the murder of his wife and son. It's told in graphic novel-style scenes. It's dark and foreboding. I'll have to look on GoG or somewhere to find this on PC.
