    Let us know how it plays, I liked the first one very much, from the style of game to the look and feel.

    Also interested to know what Bullet Time 2.0 is like :)

    Pins and needles. Pins and needles....

    How about a detailed review?

    Maybe after the BoSox and Yankee game?

    I'm sure Sazar will come through with a detailed review...

    I just bought it, plays pretty much just like the last. Great graphics again. There is a slight difference in bullet time though, I think? I can't remember how it worked in the first game (I might have to install it and find out), but on this one you have to assign a "bullet time combo" key. Just right-clicking activates normal bullet time, and to do a move you have to use the other key.

    woohooo... to really f*ck you guys up :)

    enjoy this lovely screenshot I took while I was celebrating the yankees win...

    fyi... bullet time works like it did before.. I have yet to see anything that makes me dislike it... its the same sort of pacing but the physics model is much better...

    wish I had the option to walk instead of running everywhre but thats max payne for you :D

    physics is amazing... almost everything moves or falls over... quite brilliant...

    colors and models and rag doll effects are brilliant as well...

    minor bugs... shadows are not rendered under objects you push over... but they are for max so who cares :D

    I'll play some more later... right now its too easy... can't wait to play the new york minute mode thing.. if its still called the same...
     
  19. Hey guys I just got it today and im in well a state of shock. But in a very good way I have a athlon 1.3, 512 ram and a Gforce 4 4200 and it looks and runs great for me I can only imagine what this game would look like on a oober machine. Its so dark I love this game well worth it to spend the $$ on it. Thats my 2 cents.:D
