Remedy on Max Payne, Sequel
3:23 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story

The Spanish site GamesReview has posted a lengthy new interview with developer Remedy Entertainment about their stylish action game Max Payne. While it endured a long (4+ years!) development phase, the game has received rave reviews on the PC side since its recent release. The interview covers a lot of ground on the title, including details on it's impressive graphics and story, the much-hyped 'bullet time' effect, and a little about the decision to make the game automatically adjust skill levels. Here's an excerpt:

GR: We understand that you dropped the "Normal, Easy, Medium" skill levels and went for a self-adjusting skill level. Could you explain how it works?


RE: This is a first in action gaming, I think. One thing is that we are telling a story and it would be a shame to leave it half way if the enemies turned out to be too tough. On the other hand games should not be too easy - we all like a bit of challenge. The self adjusting skill level system keeps you in that sweet spot of difficulty that is challenging yet rewarding.

Mac users have been promised a port of Max Payne from the recent deal with MacSoft and Take Two Interactive. Unfortunately, details such as who might be porting the game or a possible schedule for its release have not been discussed so far. We'll keep you up to date on any new info from MacSoft on the game's status.
