As promised, Max Payne has been released in the Google Play Store. Those of you familiar with the Max Payne don’t need an introduction, but in case you aren’t, it was originally published by Rockstar Games in 2001. It’s a third person action-shooter and is famous for introducing the concept of Bullet Time in video games with its stylish slow-motion gunplay. Of course the dark and twisted stories didn’t hurt either. It completely redefined action-shooter games.
As to the story, it’s about Max, who is a fugitive undercover cop framed for murder. He’s hunted by other cops and the mob. Along the way he fights to clear his name as he struggles to uncover the truth about his slain family amongst many plot-twists.
One of the most incredible games I can remember playing is Max Payne. Occasionally I even go to lengths in order to replay it, years later. You play as Max Payne, an ex-DEA and NYPD officer whose wife and child were brutally murdered at the hands of addicts high on “Valkyr”. On top of that, while on the Valkyr case, you’re framed for the murder of your partner, Alex. You’ve got to run from the feds while trying to piece together your family’s murder.
The game is reportedly making it’s way over to mobile devices in the near future, and Rockstar says it will have a release date settled soon. I for one am extraordinarily excited for this one, since the game utilizes a matrix-like bullet time mechanic that should give you no shortage of slow-motion justice. Complimented by an incredibly narrated plot that really pulls you in, Max Payne should be the culprit of many dead batteries once it’s released.
