    I freakin' love this series!
    I just love the noir comic book style, and the story . . . Max always gets the worst doesn't he?

    I'm excited about MP3 which I guess is still in development
    the movie was horrible

    anyway . . .
    anyone else love Max Payne?
    anyone else think Lords and Ladies, Address Unknown, Dick Justice, or Captain Baseball Bat Boy would make hilarious adult swim shows?
    :D

    MP1 was fun but MP2 was epic. Part two is one of my favorite games ever. I hope they can keep it going with MP3. I didn't see the movie but I didn't hear a lot of good things about it anyway.

    I have MP1 for PC and PS2, and MP2 for PS2. Didn't see the movie...probably won't, either. I love MP1 for PC. It's amazing. Also...the cheat codes are nifty (yes, I prefer to play with cheats. No fun if you die every few minutes). MP & MP2 for Playstation 2...I'm not too fond of them. I just don't like how un-fluid the controls seem compared to the PC (a crappy comparison, but I got to know the series on PC first)...and the fact that I can't seem to get the cheats to work...just takes a bit of the fun out of it for me. Got a new computer recently...and I can't play my original MP on it. It's vista, and according to the guy at the store, most older games won't work on Vista. So, if there is a MP3...I think I will probably buy it.

    ^Then I shall have to try installing it...once I find the CD. I was just going off of what the guy at Best Buy said. I haven't put much on the machine yet.

    I loved Max Payne 2. It was positively creepy. All copies of the movie need to be burned.

    The first was a really good action game, and the second game ramped it up to absolutely epic proportions. I love the series and honestly cannot wait for the third installment. The comic-noir style story telling gave the game such an amazing atmosphere and made me feel like I was playing a living breathing comic book.

    Max Payne 1 was the 1st game I ever played when I owned a PS2 console and I couldn't put it down loved it. Never really got into Max Payne 2 becasue I sold my PS2 shortly after buying it and its just not the same on PC.

    However since am back with my parents I have been thinking about playing it on my bro's PS2 especially after hearing so many people in this thread call it epic.

    ^Play them both on PC, if you can.

    I've tried the console versions, and they just don't compare.

    I don't say that as a PC snob, either. I enjoy console shooters.

    I've still only played Max Payne 1 since MP2 doesn't have a Mac version.

    Now that I've got an Intel Mac it may be time to rectify that.....

    One of my favorite series. I like the original a bit better then the second. Looking forward to the third installment.

    The movie was a bit of a disappointment. All they had to do was follow the story laid out in the game. It did not even need any altering. Dummies.

    I picked up the first two when they were on sale on Steam for a couple of bucks each but I haven't had a chance to play them yet. Too many games not enough time.

    Prefer a controller to play MP with and I don't have on for my PC.
