Max Payne Screenshots



Overview

In the grim city of New York, members of a family known as the Paynes have been murdered. DEA agent and soul survivor, Max Payne, vows to seek revenge for his family's untimely death. Going undercover for the DEA, he infilitrates a powerful Mafia family. His true identity was known only to his boss, who was his brother in spirit and his best friend.

And so it came to pass that this man, his beloved friend, was also murdered. And it also came to pass that Max was framed for his best friend's demise. Never has there been a man so hunted. Nor has there been a man so driven.With evangelical zeal, Max began his journey to avenge the deaths of his loved ones, clear his sullied name, and snuff out the source of his incredible misfortune.

Max Payne is a hardcore, third person perspective, 3D action shooter from 3D Realms and Remedy Entertainment that pushes the genre to its outer limits. Spreading the word of hyperviolence, the title showcases Remedy's Revolutionary MAX-FX Technology, the next-generation technology base that enables flexible and scalable computer game development that pushes the boundaries of 3D acceleration.

Features

  • All weapons in Max Payne are created in realistic detail, with empyt brass ejected from armarments exactly as in real life.

  • Ballistics are calculated as closely as possible to real-world speed, ricochet angles, and gravitational effect; bullet collisions with actors are graphically exact.

  • Max Payne's particle systems are among the most advanced in the industry; muzzle flashes, fire, and smoke are all fully volumetric.

  • Remedy is dedicated to developing photorealistic 3D characters, among the most realistic real-time characters in the industry.

  • Max has different states of movement, most of which are concentrated on weapons and using them, including dodge and the ultra cool John Woo/Matrix inspired shoot dodge, that makes Max throw himself to any direction and squeeze a rapid fire of shots while in mid-air.

  • With radiosity lighting, reflective light and deep shadows, Max Payne provides environments that are chillingly realistic.
