Playing Max Payne 2 for the first time

I played Max Payne 1 when it came out and liked it a lot; I bought part 2 when it came out, but never got around to playing it. With word that part 3 is coming, it got me in the mood....went back and replayed the original and am playing part 2 now.

Overall, I like the pacing of part 2 a bit more than 1.....the plot isnt as involved, but all in all, having a lot of fun with the more varied level design...!

I am now playing the level as Mona....quite surprising to not be Max Payne, but a welcome surprise!

I liked Max Payne 2 but Max Payne 1 is far better gamming expieriance, & in fact Max Payne 2 was a bit of a flop when it came out & that's why Max Payne 3 has been a long time comming, & it's only comming now on the back of the recent movie.

Max Payne 2 had a really weird plot, but the gameplay was awesome, and the noir, the sadness in Max words, were excellent.

Max Payne 1 is one of the best games for me. MP2 is also one of the best.

Yeah, I dig them both, but Mp2 has a different vibe that I am really digging...the level design is where I am happiest: its just more varied.......but they are both fun, bottom line!

I think they're slightly different, but i seriously digged MP2. MP1 on the other hand was infact incredible, and created this incredibly powerful vibe, theme and setting. So i'm in love with both.

But i do envy you Matt S and your more fresh outlook on the game. My would i love to relive the first play of MP2...

I hear you, Demite....I often wish I could re-experience that 'first time' for a lot of things....when I played Silent Hill 2 for the first time, I knew it was special....even if others dont dig it the same way, you feel it for yourself...

When i bought MGS4 - I loved it. But after playing ca half of it i suddently fealt like playing Max Payne. So i actually ditched MGS4 to play a 7 year old game. (At that time) It makes you think. Remedy makes great games that stays untouched by time.

When I first played Silent Hill 2, I was expecting a horror game with lots of scares and when I didn't get that, I didn't like it.
I went back a year later after getting into David Lynch and such and suddenly realized I had the greatest game of all time lying around in my room for a year.
Man, was I stupid in 2001.

Just for that, I wish I could go back and play it properly for the first time.

Well, just finished Max Payne 2 for the first time, and all-in-all, I found it to be a worthy successor to MP1....I did get the 'Mona dies' ending...

Personally, I liked the story quite a bit. Vlad being the bad guy seemed a natural progression to the conclusion of game 1....

Max Payne 2 is one of the best video games ever created. It has the best plot of any videogame ever released, in my opinion. I have yet to find a more involving or emotional experience. Don't get me wrong, the first was good, but it seemed like it didn't take itself seriously in a sense (the way it referenced John Woo and other action films, some of the dialogue and characters, etc.) but the second was dead serious and realistic.

...said the pistol to the head.
