Max is a man who has stepped out of a graphic novel and into a game. And his life isn't getting any easier. Somewhere between shades of grey and noir it's ten below zero and Max is living his nightmare to the full.

He's a man with nothing to lose, trying to fight his way out of an impossible situation. A fugitive undercover cop, with a talent for slowing time an ability to dodge bullets and a wicked aspirin habit. Framed for murder; hunted by cops and targetted by the mob. So?

So walk a mile in his shoes.

Here are some key features of "Max Payne":
12 fearsome weapons, with a choice of auto or manual reload - no excuse for being caught short.
Pain bar display, so you don't max out.
Get to the pain killers before the killers get to Payne - no prescription needed, just choose life.
Bullet-Time gameplay action; yes, this man can slow time! Gain more Bullet-Time with every enemy you take out.
Dodging and Shootdodging to help you sneak through those pesky bullets.
Cinematic shots and bullet-cam to highlight the action.
4 Difficulty and Additional Play modes for the really insane.
Parental lock - this is not the most popular feature.
