With nearly ten years between games and a different developer one has to wonder if Max Payne would have the same impact as he did all those years ago. Bringing with it bullet time and a huge dose of movie style the original two games in the series made a big impact. Since then slow motion shootouts and style isn’t something you could accuse games today of lacking. You would think then that if anyone could breathe some new life into Max’s old bones that it would be Rockstar, after all few developers have got a reputation for having more flair. For the most part Payne’s transition from Finnish developers Remedy to Rockstar is a success but it walks a fine line.
