    Ruined piece of obsolete junk. I've played it through when it was new on the shelves. Can't say it was fresh even then, back in the 2006. And now it even cannot be started with almost any decent GPU, not to mention newest ones.

    Don't cry for it. It was a clone for Max Payne game, only with generic and cliche-over-the-top drug-hunting-policeman story. Visuals were bad, and I mean, really bad, worse than in Max Payne 1 (which was shipped in 2001). Backstages were somewhat colourful, I can give them that. Controls and move-caption were decent (as 1/2 of what we saw in Max Payne). And it was a long game, by the TPS standards. But because all the subject was pretty dumb, it wasn't leave any marks in my memory.

    RIP, another generic Cenega useless shooter. I'll score a 4.99/10 on your grave.

    Looks like an amazing game. Download the game for 2.5 GB. Play the game. Won't work. It keeps stopped working and said Unsupported GPU. Thank you for wasting my quota for 2.5GB.


    Sorry to say this but don't buy this game before they fix it and btw I'm not the only one who have the same problem.

    Max Payne´s ugly little brother no one knows from 2006 is now avaiable on steam! Do you need this game? If you completed the Max Payne Trilogy, yes.
    If not, play the New York Cop shootouts first and then enjoy this B-Movie Max Payne.

    You play as Victor Corbet, a DEA Special Agent that is being sent to southamerica to fight against a drug cartel. The cops down there don´t like you at first, they give you the name matador, you shoot a lot of bad guys, a few traitors are also in the "plot", the game is straight forward (like Max Payne 2, same Engine by the way) with a lot of stupid bad guys to kill.

    Don´t expect some revelutionary gameplay, smart AI or even a balanced difficulty.


    This game got B-Movie written all over it, but thats not a bad thing actually. The game was pretty funny when I´ve played it over a friends place in 2006 and it is still a fun game today.

    I remember seeing this game when it first came out back in 2006 and I have always wanted to play it. Now that is has arrived on steam, I have finally had a chance to play this budget third person shooter. The best way I can describe this game is a max payne rip off with early splinter cell style graphics. The gameplay is almost identical to that in the first max payne(slightly less refined), with the character movements and even the bullet time effects being a direct copy. Its not quite as good as the max payne series, but for 3.99 its definately worth it.
