Yes, is already christmas or otherwise asked me who has put me in a time machine and repelled back to my youth? But before I explain to you Why the return to my youth is so fantastic, here’s the bare facts.

Opinion of the editors
Dennis Michel: On the question of the coolest action game around the millennium, there is only one answer for me: Max Payne and again Max Payne. Today, the third-person shooter is mainly for his Bullet Time mechanics – and probably the best fan song of all time – with which you jump in slow motion around corners and turn off opponents as stylish as never before.
But the games have remained in mind with a completely different aspect forever and here is the one to the so fantastic film noir atmosphere including the coherent intermediate sequences in comic style. On the other hand around moments in the story that probably shoots every fan directly into the head, which I do not want to anticipate new things in Max Payne-Kosmos.
But there are also concerns about the remakes because I am very honest, then part 3 is also significantly more aged by his leveldesign and the degree of variety. Anyone who still plays the originals as a fan today via Game Pass, falling after a big pinch of nostalgia the weaknesses into the eye.
Remedy has to score with terrific optics, the WOW effect in Punctto Story and atmosphere in today’s time and give us as stylish as never before avoid balls. If that succeeds, old Max Payne bunny but also newcomers will certainly have a lot of fun with the so special action games.
