MacGamez has posted a preview of Max Payne, the hard-boiled first-person shooter coming to the Mac from MacSoft and Feral Interactive.

Here's a brief excerpt:

Max Payne is trying to fill a neglected niche: it's a third-person game, it's got a powerful storyline, it's got all the violence anyone could want in a shooter, but the biggest factor setting it apart from other games in the 3D action genre is the utter grubby realism of its setting. I strongly feel that gamers who have been playing in dungeons, pyramids and sci-fi castles are ready to take a bite of the real world.

Leaving the beaten trail, Remedy decided during the development process that Max Payne will be single-player only, with no networking options. While the lack of a multiplayer mode has been a major weakness in many games in the past, it has also allowed some developers to focus more intently on creating fiercer, deeper solo experiences.

Head over to MacGamez for some screen shots and the rest of their preview.
