IMG Reviews Max Payne
10:18 AM | Galen Wiley | Comment on this story

Max Payne, the immensely popular third person shooter from MacSoft, long available to PC, PS2, and Xbox owners, has finally arrived on the Mac, and IMG's own Patrick Leyden has the inside scoop in IMG's review of the game.

Here is a sneak peak of what's inside:

With a plotline steeped in crime and conspiracy and game play that does not pull any punches, Max Payne is a game demands a graphical look that is raw yet sophisticated. Thankfully, the 3D world of this game lives up to the rest of the title’s stellar attributes. A large portion of this game is set in the seedy, crime-ridden tenements and alleyways of New York City. The level designers in Max Payne have faithfully recreated the ‘bad part of town’ that has been the backdrop for any number of television and feature film crime dramas over the years. When the action moves off the streets and into the areas where the ‘beautiful people’ live, this game does not miss a beat. The game consistently delivers a look that is consistent across all levels while permitting each map to be unique.
Be sure to check out the full review for the whole story. Also, if you are interested in purchasing Max Payne, you can order it right off of IMG's Store. Subscribers to the MacGames CD can pay a special, "members-only" price of $35, while non-members can pick it up for $42.
