Max Payne 1
I think this game redefined the 3rd person shooter genre when it first came out. It was the first game i played which had the now common 'bullet time' (slowmo) effect. Although it's nearly 7 years since the game's release, you can still enjoy it today. If somehow you missed it or are willing to give it another go, here is your chance.
Max Payne is a man with nothing to lose--a fugitive undercover cop framed for murder, and now hunted by the cops and the mob. As Payne, you'll uncover plot twists, engage in dramatic "bullet-time" firefights with thugs, and fight your way through an unforgiving New York blizzard. Max can wield a variety of weapons including pistols, submachine guns, shotguns, sniper rifles, grenades, and Molotov cocktails. Prepare yourself for an involving story combined with slick action.
Max Payne 2: The fall of Max Payne
The sequel to the popular Max Payne 1. This game featured one of the best physics engines developed to date. The game was released back in 2003 but you may find the experience a refreshing one, even today.
A follow-up to 2001's Max Payne, Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne features an all-new intriguing story and more slick combat. You play the role of Payne, a cop caught in a violent, film noir love story with a femme fatale murder suspect. Experience Payne's signature slow-motion gunplay with all new guns and new moves. The game features fully interactive environments, characters with ragdoll physics, and believable enemies. Max Payne 2 sets out to raise the bar for action game intensity once again.
