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

ricochet angles, and gravitational effect; bullet collisions with
actors are graphically exact.

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.

on weapons and using them, including dodge and the ultra cool John

direction and squeeze a rapid fire of shots while in mid-air.

Payne provides environments that are chillingly realistic.
