SummaryGreat game the 'cartoon' strips rule.
The GoodLike I said, the 'cartoon' strips rule. I say 'cartoon' they're more like those photo cartoon strips where the action is depicted by really people rather than drawing, you'll see what I mean. But yeah, these photo strips fill in the gaps between the levels and really help move the scene along, rather like in Monty Python movies. The story line is a good one, and it does get a bit trippy (but he is stoned of his face at the time) I'm definitely a fan of "Bullet Time" this is a feature of Max Payne whereby you can slow-mo the action, but aim your weapon in 'real time' plus you can dive out of the way of incoming bullets, very Matrix.
The BadThe graphics aren't great, more PS2 than X-Box, but that’s probably just a result of the game being rushed through production. It was after all released into a fledgling X-Box community when there where very few games on offer. But I don't hold that against it, adds character.
