Works, just takes a few mins on first run.

Had some issues with the 'black screen' issues at first. Swearing at (& later pleading with) my phone was unsuccessful, as was a hard reboot & delete/reinstallation of the app. On the millionth (give or take a few) attempt, I left the phone on the black loading screen & made a cup of coffee rather than hitting the 'home' button out of frustration. Upon retrieving the phone, I heard the familiar minor key piano/violin music of the main menu, still recognizable after all these years. No issues since - obviously just needed ten minutes or so.

Awesome for those who want to walk down memory lane - pretty intuitive controls considering the limitations, & easier to use on the 4S than I anticipated. Well worth the 3 bucks & whopping 1 gig of space.

A classic game

Thank you for updating this game!

I highly recommend everyone to turn on “Move and shoot” in the control settings. The controls are horrible without it.

I hope Max Payne 2 will one day be ported to mobile too.

The Matrix

Just like Matrix with phones ringing and subways and coats and literally bullet time slow motion mechanic. Excellent port full screen and controller support. I recommend disabling enchanted contrast in games settings for a little brighter image but that’s preference. Please make a new Max Payne for current gen consoles Rockstar.
