Great 100%

I enjoyed Max Payne 2 like I was watching the season 2 of a TV series: One episode leading to another. The protagonist is a cop that lost his wife and son, then is framed and hunted as a murderer. Anyone who experienced the pain of loving and losing can identify with this. He tries to keep his sanity and kill the demons inside his head. This time, he is not in it for vengeance. Now it’s for “love”, but ultimately to find his “true self”.


Storyline

In Max Payne 2, the player controls Max Payne, a former DEA agent for the NYPD and a fugitive framed for murder of his best friend and fellow cop Alex. Two years after the events of the first game, Max has cleared his name and is now an NYPD detective. He reunites with Mona Sax, whom he met in the previous game, as they set out to resolve a conspiracy of death and betrayal, finding the Inner Circle in the center of it all.
