Game description: Max Payne is a man with nothing to lose--a fugitive undercover cop framed for murder, and now hunted by the cops and the mob. As Payne, you'll uncover plot twists, engage in dramatic "bullet-time" firefights with thugs, and fight your way through an unforgiving New York blizzard. Max can wield a variety of weapons including pistols, submachine guns, shotguns, sniper rifles, grenades, and Molotov cocktails. Prepare yourself for an involving story combined with slick action.
The first game of the Max Payne trilogy. It centers on the NYPD Detective Max Payne, who attempts to avenge the murder of his family. It features a gritty neo-noir style and uses graphic novel panels (with voice-overs) in place of animated cutscenes to narrate the game.

||This game is perfect on PCSX2, no graphics or gameplay issue at all, just keep automatic game fix on for this one. Also as a sidenote, don't use the MSAA under Direct3D9/11 or the game will shows some vertical lines||Atomic 83|
|NTSC-J/PAL-E||Windows 8.1, x64||
||Europe v02.00(14/06/2004), Perfect, The game runs at 1440p (2K) and 1620p (3K) 50/60 FPS, without freezes, brakes and bugs. In my version of the emulator, he reads the game for a little long time, but this does not affect the game.|
|NTSC-U||Windows 10 x64||
||Noticeable lag in the opening cutscene, but this was before I enabled MTVU. Full speed (for emulation), but the game lags even on PS2. I tried increasing the EE cyclerate, but that just made the framerate even more inconsistent (sometimes it'd lag and sometimes it'd run too fast). No crashes or other major issues. Fully playable. Generally, though, there's no real reason to play this over the PC version.||PandoraGTX|
