I just picked this game up a few weeks ago and finally beat it just last night. I thought that the story was pretty cool, although I do have to admit that it was a pretty far fetched story and I was a bit confused at times. As far as a keeping me interested, it passed that test with flying colors. I think that I enjoyed MP 2 even more than I did #1. I am not always a big fan of FPS games, but this one kicks some serious azz and I am hoping that that Remedy can follow it up again with another worthwhile game.

MP 2 was freaking awesome. I agree about the far-fetched story, but overall it was good. Great graphics, gameplay, and sound = awesome game. The story isn't a huge factor, just as long as the game is fun, and not repetive. I hope as well they make Max Payne 3.

I was impressed with the gameplay, but the story was just so-so. I am not much of a fan of film noir. Too much drama.

I loved the game - i love film noire - It was WAY TOO SHORT tho... It seemed like they almost 'wrapped it up' towards the end too fast - I think it coulda been extended without too much difficulty.

LOL, did you get stuck towards the end when the bombs where on a timer and you had to figure out a way to keep from getting blowed up? That one took me about 8-10 restarts to figure out to jump into the subway car, (WTF was a subway car doing in the basement of A. Woodens house anyways)? I guess that I have to say that I enjoy film noire, at least in Max Payne games lol. Too bad that Mona Sax kicked the bucket, does she resemble Demi Moore :drool: to anybody else, or is it just me?

I dont think that was a subway car, it was a panic room. at least im pretty sure...

I did like the gameplay alot, story was okay, but a little on the short side. I do really like the dead man walking game option though. Lotsa fun seeing how long you can last, or finding a good spot to camp to make it easy :p

The story was good but not better than MP1's story. And TUK101, try finishing the game on Dead on Arrival to see what really happened to Mona.

I will have to try that. That "panic room" sure did look an aweful lot like a subway car though lol.
