Customer Reviews


Update: I just have to say that, to me, this works even better on iPhone 5 than on iPad. It just feels more responsive. Please make MP2 for iOS. Thanks!

This is - BY FAR - the best translation of a console game to iOS. Period. When I saw this in the app store I made that high-pitched girl scream where you can't get any sound out but that little screetch. Thank you, Rockstar for doing this. It's pretty much exactly like the console game and I beg you to please make Max Payne 2 for iOS as soon as you can. In terms of technical comments I feel pretty good about the controls and I want to note that the virtual joysticks just coming down wherever you place your thumbs is genius. Is it AS easy as using physical joysticks? No, of course not, because they are on a touch-screen. But it's pretty darn close. Great job! Again: PLEASE MAKE MAX PAYNE 2: THE FALL OF MAX PAYNE FOR iOS, AS WELL. Thanks!

Works well on low end devices

When Rockstar says this game can run an iPod touch 4th gen, they mean it. The frame-rate is high, the textures are not downgraded, the polygon count is consistent with the console, and it doesn't crash! It's a bit harder to aim on the small screen of an iPhone/iPod, but that was my only issue.
The game ran just as well on the iPad air, but it feels more dated when you can notice the bland character models who don't move their lips in cutscenes. Although aiming is better on the iPad and the frame-rate is butter smooth, it feels less special than playing it on an iPhone. Overall it's a very good port and worth playing.

One of the best games ever made

I have played this game many times across multiple platforms, and Rockstar did an awesome job with Max Payne. The story is dark, captivating, and extremely well written. The environments are finely detailed and the levels are varied through a variety of locations. The graphics were very good for its time (1998) and it plays great on my iPhone 3GS. The only tiny problem is that levels are very long, and if you fail, you start back from the beginning. The game is hard and puzzling in a good way, and totally worth the 3 dollars I spent on it.
