About Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne

Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne is a stylish, urban, film-noir love story of a hard-boiled cop with nothing to lose and a mysterious femme fatale who holds the answers to all his burning questions. Based in New York City's grimy underground, Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne surpasses the high standards set by 2001's award-winning Max Payne, which sold over 4 million units and revolutionized the action genre with cinematic combat sequences fueled by groundbreaking use of slow motion and dramatic narrative-driven gameplay. Initially launched on PC and becoming one of the best-selling PC games of the year, console gamers were equally thrilled by the original Max Payne as it later went on to achieve "Greatest Hits" status on the PlayStation 2 and "Platinum Hits" recognition on the Xbox.

Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne was released for PC in October of 2003 and for the Xbox in November 2003 in North America. The game has already achieved critical success, earning rave reviews, several editor's choice awards and nominations for game of the year.
