Ratings and Reviews
Excellent, but not quite perfect
This version of Max Payne runs and plays excellently, but I do have one big concern. If you play this game with a controller, you aren't given the original Max Payne controller layout. If the original controls were patched in, this game would be perfect. There would be no way to crouch, but I'm sure that people would be satisfied.
Strangely, the game also has issues picking up light presses of the d-pad and A button on my Steelseries Nimbus. For most games, I don't have any problems, but for some reason, this game has trouble picking up those simple inputs. This had led to a number of deaths simply because the game didn’t recognize that I pressed the button.
Superb port of a superb game
Can I just say this is one of the few mobile ports of a Rockstar game where the controls haven’t been butchered to hell? The controls here are prefect for mobile platforms. The dual-stick approach emulates the feel of the original control scheme, and the customizable HUD, with customizable button placement/sizes is a welcomed adjustment. The game runs very smoothly, but the only criticism I have is with the weapon select system. If you want to select different weapons within the category like the sawed-off shotgun or the classic dual-berettas, you have to go to the weapon select menu and tap the top weapon of that category, and keep entering and exiting the menu until you get the weapon you want. This is much more cumbersome compared to the on-the-fly weapon selection of the console version. If you can fix this so you can tap on the weapon you want and instead of the current system, it would be a much appreciated fix. Also, totally unrelated, ADD MAX PAYNE 2 & 3!!! THIS SERIES DOESN’T DESERVE TO GO UNFINISHED!!! It’s an otherwise masterpiece and I wholeheartedly recommend checking it out.
Still a solid game
Runs well and plays well with touch or a controller. A bit easier than I remember, seems they’ve added some very forgiving auto-aim and maybe adjusted a few things to make it more mobile friendly. Currently the game does not support any Rockstar Social Club features on newer devices, which is a real shame and the only reason I didn’t 5-star it. This means stat tracking, achievements, and I think leaderboards on the Rockstar Social Club website are not functional I think after IPhone 6 and up.
