It’s Max Payne’s first game birthday again in 2022, so we had this all planned out! It’s time to revisit Max’s journey through Max Payne 2, which brings to light a ton of the leftover characters from the original game which you’d think would just be not really mentioned again. Pretty much EVERYBODY returns in this direct sequel as we find out what happens next in Max’s life as an NYPD cop after the events of the original game. Nicholai comes into major play here, as well as Mona Sax. We also find out what happens to our good friend Vinnie Gognitti from the first game! While this game is a lot of fun and another great game in the Max Payne lineup, we still think the original just stands out that much better. The mobster voices just simply make that first game, but this one isn’t bad at all!
