"They were all dead. The final gunshot was an exclamation mark to everything that had led to this point. I released my finger from the trigger. And then it was over."
Max PayneMax Payne is a video game series developed by Remedy Entertainment and recently, Rockstar Vancouver. The series is named after its protagonist, Max Payne, a New York City police officer turned a vigilante. The series's original story and script is written by Sam Lake.
The first game of the series, Max Payne was released in 2001 for Microsoft Windows and 2002 for Xbox, PlayStation 2, and Apple Macintosh; a special version of the game was also released for the Game Boy Advance in 2003. A sequel entitled Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne was released in 2003 for PC, Xbox and the PS2. In 2008, a movie adaption of the original game entitled Max Payne was released. In 2009, Rockstar announced Max Payne 3, being developed by Rockstar Vancouver and currently scheduled for release in May 2012 for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
The franchise is notable for its use of "bullet time" in action sequences. The series has achieved varying levels of success. Both Max Payne and Max Payne 2 were well received by critics, although the sequel's sales were considered underwhelming. As of 2011, the Max Payne franchise has sold over 7.5 million copies. The film rendition, which featured Mark Wahlberg as Payne, was the opposite, in that it received harsh criticism and was given negative reviews but was commercially successful (somehow).
Max Payne 2: Payne hard- The The Fall of Max PayneMax Payne is the first game in the franchise; a third-person shooter video game developed by the Finnish company Remedy Entertainment, produced by 3D Realms and published by Gathering of Developers. The game follows the story of detective Payne as he attempts to hunt down the ones responsible for murdering his wife and child, as well as framing him for the murder of his partner, Alex. As the story unfolds he gains a number of "allies"--most of whom are killed off in the sequel—including a Russian mafia gangster Vladimir Lem, and Mona Sax, another gun-totting vigilante who's out to avenge the death of her twin sister, Lisa, and manages to bring down the ring-leaders in a major drug-operation for a narcotic called V or Valkyr—after the mythological figures in Norse mythology.
Max Payne 3 (bad joke about bald max here)At the ending of Max Payne, Max was being led away by the police, about to face charges for his killing spree. However, Max was eventually cleared of all charges, thanks to his relationship with a very influential member of society, Senator Alfred Woden. A few years have passed, and Max has returned to work for the NYPD as a homicide detective. However, during a routine murder investigation he finds himself face-to-face once again with the fugitive Mona Sax, a woman he thought was dead. Max and Mona team up to solve the answers to Max's past that left his wife and child dead.
I will update but for now lets just have some MP3 media shall we?Max Payne 3, the first game in the series developed by Rockstar Vancouver (and not by Remedy Entertainment, the original developers), will find Max in a "downward spiral" following the events of the second game. He is now 8 years older, has left both the NYPD and New York itself, and his appearance is considerably different from that of the first two games.Working for a security firm in the city of São Paulo located in Brazil, Max is double-crossed, finding himself in a "city full of violence and bloodshed". Max Payne 3 will use the same formula as before to tell the story, jumping between different points in time to elaborate on story elements while keeping pace.
