Max gets "Editor's Choice" Honor by CGW

The Nov. 2001 issue of Computer Gaming World is on shelves and contains a glowing review of Max Payne.

Rating: 4.5 of 5 stars (Editor's Choice award)

Here's part of the review:

Max Payne is like a big summer blockbuster movie. And when it comes to special effects, Max Payne sports some of the most mouth-watering eye candy ever seen in a computer game. Remedy's 3D engine does an amazing job of rendering a world that not only looks photo realistic at times but also evokes the grittiness of a noir action-thriller on the big screen. The extreme detail of the world, even the cleaner environments you encounter later on, really help in the suspension of disbelief.


Update: Also in this issue is a magazine that shows the rankings of various current games, and what they received in the way of reviews from various major gaming magazines and online game sites. Check out the image below (click on it for a larger version). Anyway, Max Payne is the only game to get straight across the board A's from everyone listed here!
