I've been replaying Max Payne which I hadn't touch in 13-14 years and I'm realizing what I mostly remember, the fondness I have for this game, is basically the 1st chapter of the game. I'm halfway through the last chapter (the game is broken up into 3 chapters) and I do remember sprinkles of rest of the game but it's alarming how much "new" areas I'm coming across. I went through a handful of games I played back in the day last year (Uncharted 1, ZOE2, RE4, Mass Effect 1&2) and everything was pretty much in place but it just isn't the case with Max Payne.
There is so much I've forgotten about this game. There are story bits that are completely new to me even though I know how the game ends. There are places, levels I just don't remember going through.
I want to go through MP2 sometime later in the year. MP1 is the only Remedy game I am really crazy about and MP2 left me disappointment back in the day but I'd like to gain a fresh perspective.
Just wrapped up Max Payne. I still like it a lot and now I'm actually hyped to play MP2 again. May go for it sooner than I was going to.
