Max Payne Demo Released

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.

Ok just finished the demo.
The Good = sound and voice acting.
The Bad = Dialog is cheezy as hell. There were more "one liners" then a VanDam, Stalone, and Schwarzneger movie combined. Some of the things MaxPayne said made my girlfriend and I laugh out loud. (and ya I know its supposed to be a campy cop story - but there is nothing "funny" about your wife and kid getting killed so why the cheeze in other areas?) Whats with MaxPays face? That texture is a total joke - it looks like he is taking a crap.

I remember my budies seeing that face texture in game magazines and telling me that they would have dozens of different textures and animations based on the situation. Boy did we hope for too much.

Clipping problems are awefull. I shot a guy (bum on drugs) and he morphed through a chair like it or he wasnt there.

One thing that bugs me is that ALL the game magazine - online or off - are hyping this as the next great thing. And sales are quite good. I hope there isnt a flood of games like this. Hell the darn health meter is so gay its not even funny. 5 shotgun blasts to my head and all I have to do is take a "pain pill" to regain health. Talk about Super Mario Brothers!

Max Payne is an arcade shooter for little kids at best. It had potential though - and yes, the sound is really good imo.
