Max Payne 2 Patch

A new patch is now available on the Take 2 Games Website updating Max Payne 2: the Fall of Max Payne to version 1.01. Among the changes is a fix for a Win98/ME crashing bug and improvement for load times on lower end systems. The update is a bit over 5 MB.

So players of this expansion pack tell me, when you shoot a baddie, does he get a bullet wound like SOF2 or that state-of-the-art game called SIN.


or are we still stuck in Quake1 land where bullets kill but somehow do no discernable damage to a body...

dude thge physics are so stupid. i hit a computer monitor with the rifle butt and it goes flying bouncing off the walls like crazy. everything in the game is indestructble, yet it feels like it's made out of cardboard and hollow ? maybe the physics seem "realistic" if you are in a wheelchair and cannot interact with anything in real life but to the rest of us its just a little silly.

also, what kind of people actually follow the stories in video games. if I wanted a story i would read a BOOK. oh wait, MP2 tried to make me read some gay comic book but luckily i just hit esc and clicked through all that crap until it went away.

If the sequel is anything like the original in terms of gameplay, it actually works to their advantage that it's short.

Haha coming from up I take that as a complement, now I know its a good game if you think it sucks.

 
The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.That is easy.All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.It works the same way in any country.

Anyone who pays $50 for 5 hours of gameplay is a fool. Period.

I'm seriously put off by all these comments about the length. I tend to run through games too quickly already.

34. About the patch and more Oct 22, 2003, 06:40 Jigen
 
The patch actually does quite a few small things... I haven't played thru yet to notice them all, but there are quite a few things changed so far.

I haven't gotten the second ending yet, but I'm working on it.

I loved the first max Payne (because of the ridiculous dialogue and atmosphere) and love the new one even more.
It's just that little bit grittier and darker.

[minor spoiler]
Did you guys listen to the audio tape in the room that was spying on Max? His dialogue with the escort girl? You gotta love that.
[/minor spoiler]

PS: the persons who did the textures in this game should get an award. Really some of the best I've seen.

How dare you heathens enjoy this game! Can't you see how terribly cliche it all is? I mean really, how many times have I played a game with some form of killing in it. Violence is overdone, I think we need more games with no competition (which always leads to violence) like Tetris. A truly original game worthy of getting over a 2.5/5 from a jaded over analyzing critic.

this game is just fucking awesome. storyline was great, gameplay was better than the first, and right now im addicted to that "dead man walking" game mode i unlocked. cinematography improved A LOT from the first, and the game felt much more like a matured movie than the first one.

the only thing missing are the doves in a church scene. :p

oh ya, i felt that this movie was a bit like "the killer" by john woo. good stuff.

Possible Spoilers

Look there is only one legimate point you have to argue about, is the length.
If you expect to find your so called sexfree intellectual fulfillment from a action/fim noir game. You need new priorities
First place he never focuses on her breast, thou you seem to
Her breast are not that big, she is a female (shock, horror she has breast :)), if you are looking for some macho man hooking up with some mocho man for some gay/action/film/noir you need to look ELSE WHERE
As for the inevitable death, your wrong (I found this first, there is a sceond ending :)).
Yes people get shot even Max(even in the head), thou not everyone dies that gets shot, several survive. IF you pay attention to the story (its JUST a story) that fits and anwsers questions (Plot points) from the first.
Thanks to BT2.0 the bullet didnt penetrate Max's skull, thou it did metamorphicly
Yes and they even make fun of themselves, Dick Justice ( you get your trail at morgue, LOL ), the game is full of inside jokes realating to and targeted to Gamers. 3Drealms, Brussard WID jokes from the secret SexFetish room in Woodens office MP1, to the police station MP2. This game is full of entertainment its not all of the shoot and run type thou some of you have seemed to miss it or just dont care, so you shouldnt be playing this anyway
I think you guys should go debate the intellectual, philosophical and metaphorical possiblities of maybe something more realistic like say DOOM or QUAKE, Hey it could happen
So what you got here is high production, damn smooth engine, nice special effects, good fun humor, film/noir love story shot Action Game with very few bugs actually COMPLETED IN 2003

I don't know if I'd call the game retarded, and I *did* feel it could be longer (just beat it, probably 6-7 hours total). It's hard to justify the shortness of this game for the big price tag, when games like Counter-strike have offered me hundreds of hours of fun for free. Vietcong offered tons of gameplay + multiplayer, and it was cheaper. I realize the production values of MP2 are higher, but I do feel slightly cheated...like this was only an expansion pack. I mean, the only things different from MP1 to MP2 were the storyline and the physics. Just cuz I can shoot the same bad guys again and have them fall realistically over the barrel behind em doesn't mean I wanna pay $75 (Canadian) for that experience. I was expecting more. Well, now it's obvious why MP2 came out "quickly" compared to other anticipated shooters - it's got 6 hours of gameplay and not a whole lot of improvements/additions/changes.

Anyway, I still enjoyed my run through it (not as much as I would've liked, but anyhow). The story still seems a little too cheesy and a little too ridiculously told for my tastes. I'd give MP2 about 7/10.

I think this game has the best physics implementation I've seen. But if you think the game is "retarded" and the storyline "gay," I guess there's no changing your mind.
