Max Payne Playstation 2 Review

In more Max Payne console news, IGN has posted a preview of the PS2 version of Max Payne. Here's a bit of what they had to say about it:

The PlayStation 2 version of the game that I played today is a remarkably accurate rendition of the PC original. It's a near-perfect port, with everything that's in the PC version packed right into it. The biggest alterations are mostly in the production, and they hardly affect gameplay.

Regardless of whether you have, or have not, played the PC version, Max Payne on PS2 retains 100% of the original's fun factor, and 100% of its kick-butt action.

Producer 3D Realms and developer Remedy give players three controller config setups from which to choose. The control feels better than decent, and it only took a few minutes to get used to doing everything necessary.

If you have a Playstation II, this is the title you'll want for your holiday game play. You can pre-order your copy today through
