I have heard that in max payne on the ps2 when gun fights start the game can not handle it and it slows down to a really bad frame rate. If you could please tell me how much this really affects the game and if it is worth buying in general. Cheers Chris

It's a question which all people can answer for those that would want to know. A lot of forums tend to have these, and a lot of people may take this advice to heart while browsing them, so it's nice to see them bumped every once in a while.

Yes, it's worth it. It may sound a long time as it was made back in 2001, but still, it's a legendary game to have. It has got a lot of levels and a very appealing storyline with a lot of twists and turns. It also features a new Bullet Time mode where everything is all slow motion and you have a greater advantage while capping your enemies.

I recommend the game and yes the gunfights are a tiny bit jumpy. But only like once every 5 missions or something. Seriously, get this truly outstanding 10/10 game!

The game runs on a very low framrate ALL THE TIME. However, most of the time you can even notice it. If you play the game a lot you will get use to it, then you will play another game for a while, then go back to Max Payne and really notice the difference. The game slows down considerably when in a gun fight or large room, but not to the point that it hinders the gameplay, and like I said; you will get use to it.
The game takes longer to load that some other PS2 games and all of this is because they did a shitty job of translating it onto the PS2... but the game is WICKED fun despite.
My suggestion: Get the game on the X-Box or PC if possible, if not get the PS2 version because the game is totally worth it and at $20 now it it's even more worth it. I have had it for a year now and haven't even thought about trading in because I still play it from time to time. The gameplay is addicting and the Bullet-Time just sweetens the deal. If you like hardcore action games with a terrific story mixed in get this game, it's a classic.
