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.

"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! "

You need something to bring your health back down again. What would be better? Floating health-packs? Maybe handy medical centres along the way that Max could pop into for some quick surgery? Of course you'd still moan about it being unrealistic unless you were also forced to wait in ER for 3 hours then spend 30 minutes filling out the relevent medical insurance forms.

At the end of the day it's a game. People have got their hopes up way too much and expected it to change the way we play games forever but who says it was ever supposed to do that? It's just a bit of fun, some cool slow motion (or whatever you want to call it) and a nice story to follow as you play. The developers never claimed it was a work of genius.
