It’s that time, folks. Max Payne (Mobile) just landed in the Google Play Store late last night and without hesitation, I’ve downloaded and installed the latest from Rockstar Games onto my Galaxy Nexus.
One of the few games I’ve ever played to completion, (I have a hard time finishing what I’ve started) I’m sure you already know exactly what this game is about. But for our younger readers, I’ll go ahead and give you the spiel. You’re a cop, with a chip on his shoulder who finds himself on the wrong side of the law after his family is brutally murdered in his home. The first game to make use of the now famous “Bullet Time” gameplay mechanic, you shoot the face off of everything, and everyone that comes your way in order to exact revenge on those responsible. The game uses photo realistic graphics (cutting edge back in its day) and mixes a unique graphic novel style cutscenes, with dark, noir storytelling.
Okay, we know the game is awesome. That’s pretty much a given. But how well does it play on Android? Well, check out my quick hands-on video to find out.
So, as you can see from my video, Max Payne is pretty much unplayable unless you’re using some kind of bluetooth controller. It can be played without, but you’re probably not going to enjoy it much. Also, keep in mind that Max Payne will require at least 1.33GB of free space on your device’s storage to allow for system resources (took me about 9 minutes with a speedy WiFi connection). You can find the game right now in the Google Play Store for the low-low price of $3.
