As promised, 3D Realms has now released the playable demo of Max Payne, offering you an opportunity to try out the gritty third-person action game by Remedy Entertainment on the off-chance that you haven't played the full game yet. We have a local copy with mirrors of the 130.8 MB download, which includes a tutorial, the story introduction, and two levels from the full game.

I have to agree to a certain extent, but third person is the only way to go sometimes. Hand to hand combat for example just does not work well in first person. It feels good to beat the crap out of a target, but it feels better to see it all and do it with style (i.e. Rune or Oni)! I like the theatrical effects third person games add to enhance the value of being in that view, but even I got a bit bored with the "Bullet Time" effect in Max. Too much of a good thing, you know. I think I'll give that First Person mod a try.
