        A couple of years ago, the predecessor of Max Payne 2: The Fall of 
Max Payne changed my gaming habits with its unique and stylish game play, 
story and everything else. It converted me into a pc gamer for life!!! The 
first thing I did after finishing Max Payne 1 was to check if it had a sequel 
or not. Praying to the Gods of gaming, I clicked into the Max Payne website 
and with a sigh of relief, I found out that the sequel to the most stylish 
and coolest game ever made was already out. Not knowing that it was going to 
push Max Payne hard for the No.1 spot in favorite games list, I went ahead 
and purchased it.

        The protagonist of this game, Max Payne, has been freed from police 
custody for whatever he did in the previous installment of the game, with the 
help of one of the characters he had made a deal with. Now, the entire world 
perceives him as some kind of a hero who helped the city in its fight against 
the unlawful citizens of the city. This game has been promoted as a film noir 
love story and it tries really hard to be one.

        The story of Max Payne, like the previous one, has been told through 
a number of cut-scenes and graphic novels (ala Sin City). The writer, though 
loses the humor, still manages to create an intense and dark atmosphere of 
the first one, which, in turn, keeps the players at the edge of their seat 
through out the length of the game.

        But, there is a difference in the way graphic novels and cut-scenes 
have been implemented this time around. In the previous game, you were able 
to click on various items (including TV news, radio, telephones, etc.) 
through out the level, which triggered graphic novels. In this sequel, 
however, you can't click on anything during a level to trigger a graphic 
novel. Graphic novels are strictly there to begin and end the levels. 
Everything else during a level has been told in live action or cut-scenes.

        What can we say about the game-play of max Payne??? It still remains 
the biggest highlight of this franchise. Like the previous installment, it 
once again has been incredibly well done and extremely enjoyable to play. 
With the return of the franchise returns the Bullet time and shoot dodge. 
These unique features make the game really stylish and fun to play. But, 
there have been some major changes to its key features like Bullet time, 
placement of painkillers, and the like.

        Previously, bullet time was more useful when used with shoot dodge. 
Now, bullet time has been modified to complement standing and gunning people. 
It doesn't pay to shoot dodge since it takes a long time to get back up which 
always proves calamitous. Now, you can take on 5 or even more people at the 
same time with the help of Bullet time and standing up. If you try to shoot 
dodge while taking on so many people, you will always lose the battle. The 
screen goes yellow when you use bullet time in this game. The longer you use 
it, the more powerful you will become, since you will pick up speed with each 
passing second while your enemies will progressively become slower. Another 
new cool effect of Bullet time is the reloading style while in Bullet time. 
If your gun runs out of ammo while you are still in bullet time, then Max 
will bend halfway downwards and does a 360 degree spin. By the time you face 
the enemy again, your gun is reloaded. This feature, however, may become 
tiresome after a while.

        Another new addition to the game play is the ability to play as 
another character in a few levels. You will get to play a couple of levels 
through Mona Sax's perspective, which blends perfectly with the storyline. 
Even when you play as Max, Mona will be there in a few levels to help you as 
a NPC. This helps the storyline too, by showcasing there relationship. There 
are other characters too who help you to kill enemies without you actually 
controlling them.

        Then, there is this thing about the HAVOK ENGINE!!! The enemies will 
no longer fall in only three or four ways like in the previous game. The rag-
doll effects in this game are amazingly life-like. The bodies of the enemies 
will fall in real fashion depending on where the bullets hit them. The 
movement of their arms and legs and other body parts will crash into things 
like they would in real life. They will get entangled into things and or hang 
from ceilings with their arms still flapping. It all looks wonderful in a 
combat. You can even play with bodies by shooting it and blowing it up in the 
air. The game objects too are affected by these effects. If you crash into 
fans, crates, etc., then be sure that they will move and fall.

        It is a journey that will blow you away with its style and 
classiness. A game to last an eternity, spiritually!!!

Introduction

A couple of years ago, the predecessor of Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne 
changed my gaming habits with its unique and stylish game play, story and 
everything else. It converted me into a pc gamer for life!!! The first thing 
I did after finishing Max Payne 1 was to check if it had a sequel or not. 
Praying to the Gods of gaming, I clicked into the Max Payne website and with 
a sigh of relief, I found out that the sequel to the most stylish and coolest 
game ever made was already out. Not knowing that it was going to push Max 
Payne hard for the No.1 spot in favorite games list, I went ahead and 
purchased it.

Preview

The protagonist of this game, Max Payne, has been freed from police custody 
for whatever he did in the previous installment of the game, with the help of 
one of the characters he had made a deal with. Now, the entire world 
perceives him as some kind of a hero who helped the city in its fight against 
the unlawful citizens of the city. This game has been promoted as a film noir 
love story and it tries really hard to be one.

Story: 8.5/10

Like it has been said above, the story tries very hard to be a film noir love 
story. But, in the quest to make a film noir love story, the writer loses the 
humor that made the first game a classic. Somewhere down the line, you wish 
they had paid more attention to the humor side of the first game, and 
implemented it in the second one too. But the humor side apart, it's still 
good enough to be able to suck you into caring for the lead characters. You 
just can't help continue playing until you know what happens to them at the 
end.

The story of Max Payne, like the previous one, has been told through a number 
of cut-scenes and graphic novels (ala Sin City). The writer, though loses the 
humor, still manages to create an intense and dark atmosphere of the first 
one, which, in turn, keeps the players at the edge of their seat through out 
the length of the game.

But, there is a difference in the way graphic novels and cut-scenes have been 
implemented this time around. In the previous game, you were able to click on 
various items (including TV news, radio, telephones, etc.) through out the 
level, which triggered graphic novels. In this sequel, however, you can't 
click on anything during a level to trigger a graphic novel. Graphic novels 
are strictly there to begin and end the levels. Everything else during a 
level has been told in live action or cut-scenes.

Now, we come to the actual story of the game. His life in ruins, Max rejoins 
the NYPD. He is shown working under the guy who was chasing him in the first 
game!!! One night, responding to a distress call, he goes to make enquiries 
where he meets someone he thought dead, Mona Sax. And with her, comes back 
all his past ghosts to haunt him. This game also marks the return of a few 
more characters from the first game. It seems as if one of the underworld 
don, Vinnie Gognitti, has made a deal with some one high above. A hit has 
been put on Max Payne's name along with a few more people. He must now 
uncover the mystery behind it all, while confronting with the evils of his 
past.

Gameplay: 10/10

What can we say about the game-play of max Payne??? It still remains the 
biggest highlight of this franchise. Like the previous installment, it once 
again has been incredibly well done and extremely enjoyable to play. With the 
return of the franchise returns the Bullet time and shoot dodge. These unique 
features make the game really stylish and fun to play. But, there have been 
some major changes to its key features like Bullet time, placement of 
painkillers, and the like.

Previously, bullet time was more useful when used with shoot dodge. Now, 
bullet time has been modified to complement standing and gunning people. It 
doesn't pay to shoot dodge since it takes a long time to get back up which 
always proves calamitous. Now, you can take on 5 or even more people at the 
same time with the help of Bullet time and standing up. If you try to shoot 
dodge while taking on so many people, you will always lose the battle. The 
screen goes yellow when you use bullet time in this game. The longer you use 
it, the more powerful you will become, since you will pick up speed with each 
passing second while your enemies will progressively become slower. Another 
new cool effect of Bullet time is the reloading style while in Bullet time. 
If your gun runs out of ammo while you are still in bullet time, then Max 
will bend halfway downwards and does a 360 degree spin. By the time you face 
the enemy again, your gun is reloaded. This feature, however, may become 
tiresome after a while.

Another new addition to the game play is the ability to play as another 
character in a few levels. You will get to play a couple of levels through 
Mona Sax's perspective, which blends perfectly with the storyline. Even when 
you play as Max, Mona will be there in a few levels to help you as a NPC. 
This helps the storyline too, by showcasing there relationship. There are 
other characters too who help you to kill enemies without you actually 
controlling them.

Even the environment contributes a lot to the game play. There are many 
explosive canisters lying about here and there which you can use to kill the 
enemies. There are places where you will have to blow some canisters to 
create a hole in the wall or the ground to progress further. They all look 
really beautiful too!!!

Then, there is this thing about the HAVOK ENGINE!!! The enemies will no 
longer fall in only three or four ways like in the previous game. The rag-
doll effects in this game are amazingly life-like. The bodies of the enemies 
will fall in real fashion depending on where the bullets hit them. The 
movement of their arms and legs and other body parts will crash into things 
like they would in real life. They will get entangled into things and or hang 
from ceilings with their arms still flapping. It all looks wonderful in a 
combat. You can even play with bodies by shooting it and blowing it up in the 
air. The game objects too are affected by these effects. If you crash into 
fans, crates, etc., then be sure that they will move and fall.

Enemy A.I.: 8.0/10

The enemy A.I. is nearly the same as the last one. They will again come after 
you once they spot you. Occasionally, they will camp in stead of following 
you. This does make for great combat set pieces though. But, it looks dumb 
when they hurl a misdirected grenade at you and then walk into it.

Graphics: 10/10

Quite easily, one of the most beautiful looking games out there in the 
market!!! The level textures and models all look really detailed and 
realistic too. The level designing is perhaps the best you will get to see 
over a long period of time. The buildings, explosions that send the bodies 
and walls flying, the burning effects of the building, blowing up of places, 
all pack a punch. It all looks so real and awesome that you spend a lot of 
time just looking at them. The explosions and flames all do well to lend 
themselves to creating a great and intense atmosphere in the game.

There is a wide variety of levels which all showcase the hard work and the 
dedication of the developers. No expanse has been spared. Right from the 
Police HQ, big Manors, decaying buildings and neighborhood, to the garage and 
a funhouse, etc. all look so detailed, that it's a crime not to stop and 
behold the beauty for a few moments!!!

Weapons, character models, weapon reloading, environment, etc. all look 
fluent and realistic. The Molotov and grenades, explosive canisters, smoke, 
thunder & lightning, create an intense atmosphere suited to the franchise. 
Carnage by bullets and explosions are permanent which can make any place look 
like a war zone in no time. The new Bullet time also add to the beauty!!! 
When in bullet time, the screen turns into a beautiful golden colour, a sight 
to behold!!!

The re-modeled characters and their clothes are all good too. They are all 
extremely detailed. Max now looks more real, and he looks like a man who has 
been through a lot in life. But, in lieu of creating a more believable Max 
Payne, the developers have lost the ever-so-famous grin of the earlier Max 
Payne, which is a pity really. The scars and cuts of the character remains 
with Max right till the end, which shows off the amount of hard work that's 
been put in.

The issue of death-animation restriction of the first one has been resolved 
here. The rag-dolls look great and more importantly, are convincing!!! But, 
another issue of lip-syncing for the characters still hasn't been answered in 
this one. They still look odd during cut-scenes.

Sound: 10/10

The main theme of the first one has been retained, but it's been created 
using a different instrument which suits the film noir style more. It gives a 
feeling of the events as they unfold. It also does well to conjure up an 
image of the tragic protagonist, and creates a wonderful atmosphere. The 
combat music of the first one was better though. This game also has a very 
good end credits song 'Late Goodbye' by the 'Poets of the Fall', which easily 
surpasses any song ever heard in any game.

Like with the previous installment, the voice-acting is top-notch once again. 
The voice-over actors of the first one have been retained for the sequel as 
well. And they have done a great job of it too. 

The guns, Molotovs, and grenades all sound realistic. The enemies yell a more 
variety of curses at you during fire-fights than in the first one, which add 
to the atmosphere. The breaking of walls, blowing up of buildings, screeches 
of cars, sounds of thunder & lightning, etc. all combine their forces to 
create an unbelievable aura of realism.

Controls: 10/10

Even if you haven't played the first one, it won't be a problem to get into 
this game. This game is incredibly easy to control and operate. The features 
are very well implemented and the players find it very easy to learn the 
moves. You can also change the control set up for the game to any keys you 
want to.

Play time

This game can take you anything between 7-9 hours to complete in your first 
play through. However, this game has various difficulty modes to beat.

Replayability: 8.5/10

Like its predecessor, its game-play too is also very strong so that you can 
play it multiple times without getting bored. Once you beat the game for the 
first time, you can try to beat the game in higher difficulty modes, which 
are unlocked one-by-one as you beat the previous difficulty modes. The game 
has three difficulty modes which make the game progressively harder to beat. 
In addition to these three difficulty modes, it also has a timed mode to 
contain with.

In addition, there is also a new game play mode called 'DEAD MAN WALKING'. In 
it, you will have to kill re-spawning enemies who keep on increasing with 
time. Basically, you will have to survive for as long as you can. There are a 
total of six maps plus two more official maps waiting to be downloaded. Plus, 
there are hundreds of DMW maps made by fans of the series, which you can 
download.

Modifications

The game has quite a few good mods for you to play. And the mod community for 
the Max Payne games has gained momentum off-late. So you can get a few hours 
game-play out of them.

Overall: 10/10

Recommendation

This game is a worthy successor of a great game. A must-buy if you don't mind 
the short length of the game. It is a journey that will blow you away with 
its style and classiness. A game to last an eternity, spiritually!!!

Behold the beauty of Payne!!!
Taste the Payne!!! Again!!!

 4) Weapons                                                         (400)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
=============================================================================

        Max Payne has a lovely arsenal of weaponry which can be categorized 
into six types which are explained below.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 a) Secondary Attack
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 (i) Melee Weapon
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


=============================================================================
 1) Melee Attack: You press the secondary attack key to whack the enemy with
    whatever gun you may be holding at the time. This attack is pretty
    useless in this game.
=============================================================================


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 (ii) Throwable Weapons
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


=============================================================================
 1) Grenades: Blow enemies to hell with this weapon. You have to press the
    secondary attack key to use this weapon.
    Clip size: 1.
    Total ammo: 10.
    First Appearance: Part I, Chapter 1.
=============================================================================


=============================================================================
 2) Molotovs: It is a dark colored bottle with a cloth coming out from top.
    It explodes at contact and burns the enemy to hell. You have to press the
    secondary attack key to use this weapon.
    Drawbacks: Throw it far away from you or you too may burn yourself.
    Clip size: 1.
    Total ammo: 10.
    First Appearance: Part I, Chapter 2.
=============================================================================


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 b) Handguns
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


=============================================================================
 1) Desert Eagle: A powerful and accurate handgun which can be used to take 
    on a couple of enemies at one time. You can even use it kill enemies at
    long distance and it still can kill them with one shot to the head.
    Drawbacks: Clip size is small and slow rate of fire.
    Clip size: 10.
    Total ammo: 100.
    First Appearance: Part I, Chapter 2.
=============================================================================


=============================================================================
 2) Dual Desert Eagles: Same as above, except you carry two of these.
    Drawbacks: Same as above.
    Clip size: 20.
    Total ammo: 100.
    First Appearance: Part I, Chapter 4.
=============================================================================


=============================================================================
 3) 9mm Pistol: This is the basic weapon of the game and you start-off with
    these. The least powerful weapon in your armory but one of the most
    accurate weapon. Also, it fires very fast.
    Drawbacks: Not much use.
    Clip size: 16.
    Total ammo: 160.
    First Appearance: Part I, Prologue.
=============================================================================


=============================================================================
 4) Dual 9mm Pistols: Same as above, except you carry two of these.
    Drawbacks: None. Can be used pretty much anywhere in the first part.
    Clip size: 32.
    Total ammo: 160.
    First Appearance: Part I, Prologue.
=============================================================================


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 c) Shotguns
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


=============================================================================
 1) Pump-Action Shotgun: This is my personal favorite since it's handy for
    most occasions. It is very powerful.
    Drawbacks: Slow rate of fire, not efficient at long ranges.
    Clip size: 7.
    Total ammo: 140.
    First Appearance: Part I, Chapter 1.
=============================================================================


=============================================================================
 2) Sawed-Off Shotgun: These look cool but not very efficient at handling
    enemies at medium and long ranges since it accuracy is very bad. It has
    the fastest rate of fire among the three shotguns.
    Drawbacks: Can hold only two shells, not efficient at long ranges.
    Clip size: 2.
    Total ammo: 140.
    First Appearance: Part I, Chapter 1.
=============================================================================


=============================================================================
 3) Striker: Just like shotgun but can carry 12 shells and has a very fast
    rate of fire. It is the automatic shotgun.
    Drawbacks: Not efficient at long ranges.
    Clip size: 10.
    Total ammo: 200.
    First Appearance: Part III, Chapter 2.
=============================================================================


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 d) SMGs
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


=============================================================================
 1) Ingram: A great weapon at short and medium range distance and it has a
    very high speed of fire. Hero of Max Payne 1, here, this weapon feels
    ignored due to the more powerful weapons of this game.
    Drawbacks: Inaccurate at long ranges.
    Clip size: 32.
    Total ammo: 320.
    First Appearance: Part I, Chapter 1.
=============================================================================


=============================================================================
 2) Dual Ingrams: Same as above except you carry two of these.
    Drawbacks: Same as above.
    Clip size: 64.
    Total ammo: 320.
    First Appearance: Part I, Chapter 1.
=============================================================================


=============================================================================
 3) MP5: An automatic weapon that comes with a scope, so that you can snipe
    enemies at medium-long range too. It will take sometime to get used to
    it as its reticule moves a bit while sniping. But, it is still very
    accurate. It has a very good rate of fire too.
    Drawbacks: Takes a bit of time to get used to.
    Clip size: 30.
    Total ammo: 300.
    First Appearance: Part I, Chapter 6.
=============================================================================


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 e) Assault Rifles
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


=============================================================================
 1) Kalashnikov: Easily, the best gun of this game. It looks great, feels
    great and it is great. Good rate of fire, moderately accurate and good
    for killing a bunch of enemies at one go.
    Drawbacks: None.
    Clip size: 30.
    Total ammo: 300.
    First Appearance: Part I, Chapter 2.
=============================================================================


=============================================================================
 2) M4 Carbine: A side-kick to Kalashnikov, it has most things going for it.
    It looks good but doesn't feel as good as Kalashnikov. It, too, has a
    good rate of fire, more accurate than Kalashnikov and good for killing a
    bunch of enemies at one go.
    Drawbacks: None.
    Clip size: 30.
    Total ammo: 300.
    First Appearance: Part I, Chapter 7.
=============================================================================


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 f) Snipers
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


=============================================================================
 1) Sniper Rifle: Another of my favorite weapon. You can take out enemies out
    from long distances using the scope. Only Max Payne gets to use this
    weapon.
    Drawbacks: A liability at short ranges, slow rate of fire.
    Clip size: 5.
    Total ammo: 50.
    First Appearance: Part I, Chapter 4.
=============================================================================


=============================================================================
 2) Dragunov: This weapon is Sniper Rifle's sidekick. It's not as accurate as
    the Sniper Rifle but has a nice rate of fire. Only Mona Sax gets to use
    this weapon.
    Drawbacks: A liability at short ranges, not as accurate.
    Clip size: 10.
    Total ammo: 100.
    First Appearance: Part II, Chapter 4.
=============================================================================


=============================================================================
 It's done. That will be your arsenal. Now get moving player.
=============================================================================


=============================================================================
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 5) Hints & Tips                                                    (500)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
=============================================================================

  1) Always collect weapons after killing an enemy.

  2) Always explore all cabinets, rooms, crates, top of crates, out-of-way
     places for goodies.

  3) Use painkillers and bullet time extensively. Bullet time automatically
     fills-up when you're not using it.

  4) If you have used up your entire Bullet time, then wait for it to refill
     itself before progressing forward.

  5) Unlike the previous game, shootdodges are not very useful. Now, bullet
     time has been modified to complement standing and gunning people. It
     doesn't pay to shoot dodge since it takes a long time to get back up
     which always proves calamitous. Now, you can take on 5 or even more
     people at the same time with the help of Bullet time and standing up. If
     you try to shoot dodge while taking on so many people, you will always
     lose the battle.

  6) Rolling sideways/backwards/forward isn't really useful, since you can't
     shoot while doing it. Try not to perform them. They are not worth it.

  7) Quick saves are a must in your first play through. Always quick save
     after a tough fire-fight or before venturing into the unknown (new
     rooms).

  8) Always peek into the room before entering it, using the left or right
     side of the doorways. It's always useful to know rather than to
     speculate the danger awaiting you.

  9) If there are too many enemies, then wait and watch their movements and
     think out a suitable strategy.

 10) If an enemy is holding his position, and you're not in a condition to
     attack, then use cover, show yourself and hide to make him fire at you.
     And make your move when your enemy is busy reloading.

 11) If an enemy is coming towards you, let him come and take cover,
     attacking when he is near.

 12) If you get your enemy in a state of suppression fire (i.e., shot him and
     he is not in a position to shoot back while taking damage) keep firing
     with a rapid firing weapon till the enemy's down and out.

 13) If you are using a wall or a door as a cover and enemies are charging at
     you then follow the following mantra to stay fit:
     Step out-shoot once or twice-back to hiding-repeat till all of them are
     dead.

 14) Once an enemy spots, he will come after you. Be ready for some action.

 15) If you are in a hole, then you can always entice enemies into following
     you. Take cover and let them have it once they come after you.

 16) Always try to aim for the head.

 17) Keep check of your ammo and bullet time.

 18) Make sure to turn off Bullet time as soon as your enemies are dead.
     Don't wait for them to fall to the ground. Waste too much Bullet time.

 19) Make a habit of reloading after every fire-fight. It can save your life.

 20) Use the environment to your advantage. Dive behind sofas, chairs, take
     cover behind walls, doors, pillars, etc. during fire-fights.

 21) You need not shoot al the enemies that you see. Some of them are often
     standing near explosive things (i.e., propane tanks, laser tripwires,
     explosive drums, etc.) which you can explode to blow a few enemies at
     one go.

 7) Bullet Time & Shootdodge                                        (700)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
=============================================================================

        With the return of the franchise returns the Bullet time and shoot 
dodge. These unique features make the game really stylish and fun to play. 
But, there have been some major changes to its key features like Bullet time, 
and the like.

        Previously, bullet time was more useful when used with shoot dodge. 
Now, bullet time has been modified to complement standing and gunning people. 
It doesn't pay to shoot dodge since it takes a long time to get back up which 
always proves calamitous. Now, you can take on 5 or even more people at the 
same time with the help of Bullet time and standing up. If you try to shoot 
dodge while taking on so many people, you will always lose the battle. The 
screen goes yellow when you use bullet time in this game. The longer you use 
it, the more powerful you will become, since you will pick up speed with each 
passing second while your enemies will progressively become slower. Another 
new cool effect of Bullet time is the reloading style while in Bullet time. 
If your gun runs out of ammo while you are still in bullet time, then Max 
will bends halfway downwards and does a 360 degree spin. By the time you face 
the enemy again, your gun is reloaded. This feature, however, may become 
tiresome after a while.

        The bullet time will help you through thick-and-thin situations right 
through the game. The whole idea behind this concept is to make the gameplay 
more stylish and fun to play. The bullet time will fill up all by itself 
while you are not using it or you can regain bullet time by killing more and 
more enemies. You can activate bullet time in three ways:

1) While moving and pressing bullet time/shootdodge combo, you will perform a 
shootdodge in slow motion. Bullet time will end when you stand up again.

2) While standing still and pressing bullet time/shootdodge combo, you and 
the world will go into bullet time. You can stop it by pressing the same 
button again or performing a shootdodge.

3) Or you can do it by pressing the bullet time only button and stop it by 
pressing the same.

        Another wonderful addition to bullet time is shootdodges, which you 
can use either with bullet time or separately. You will either dive 
forward/backwards/sidewards or roll forwards/backwards/sidewards depending on 
the weapon you may be carrying at that time.

 Chapter 2: A Criminal Mastermind
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A graphic novel.
New York City. Last Night. Vladimir's Restaurant 'Vodka' ('Ragnarock' a 
Nightclub).

"I felt elation, but with it, fear that all the past evils had come along for 
the ride."

A cut-scene.

        You enter the building from the backdoor. Check the corridor on the 
right side for a couple of painkillers and climb the stairs. Hide behind the 
crates and watch. Three thugs will notice and come for you. Use Ingrams or 
Shotgun to take them down along with bullet time. Collect their ammo and 
climb the stairs. You will meet another thug on the stairs, kill him and come 
back down. Go to the room on the right side. Check the second cabinet on the 
right for a couple of painkillers. Pick up the phone, and then check the mike 
on the left side. Exit and go to the next floor. A cut-scene.

        A new character, he will help you in your quest to kill the bad guys. 
I, on a personal level, kill that guy and take his Kalashnikov, since the 
game is already so easy!!! Anyways, you stick with him if you want to. Go to 
the next floor and watch the TV if you fell like it.

        Take the corridor on the left and peek inside the room on the left. 
There are three guys there and lots of goodies for you to collect. Kill them 
all and take them all. Don't forget to check the cabinet. Take the corridor 
at the end of the room behind the shelves. There is a door to the left at the 
end of the walkway, which closes when the thugs there see you. Go to the top 
of the stairs and kill the lone thug there. Save.

        Enter the door on the right and kill the thug closest to you. Another 
one is on the raised platform to your left. Kill him and go towards the 
stairs on the far end. Two thugs will be coming that way. Kill them and go 
down, turn left and into the small corridor. Kill the only thug there and 
collect the painkillers near the next door at the end.

        Exit and kill the thug on the left (sometimes this thug comes into 
the previous room after you). Kill the thug on the right, going down the 
stairs. Take the stairs and go right down to the ground floor. Kill the only 
thug there. Turn back and two more thugs will come from the door on the first 
landing. Kill them and enter that door.

        Again enter the next door on the left and peek into the room using 
the door as cover. Three thugs are camping there. Bullet time and shotgun to 
kill them!!! Check the cabinet at the back for goodies and go through the 
door on the right, in the middle. A thug will be on the left. Kill him, check 
the table at the back and go hide behind the pillar near the stairs on the 
other side. Three thugs are waiting for you on the bottom floor. You can kill 
them from here using Ingram or Kalashnikov. Or go down and kill them with 
shotgun or any other weapon. Go to the door at the far end. Save.

        Enter and quickly kill the thug you see straight ahead. Turn left and 
kill the thug you see backing away. Hide behind the pillar on the left side 
near the counter. Eight more thugs will come from the above floor to kill you 
in a group of two at a time. They will move from the right side to the far 
end of the floor above and drop down on the crates on the other side.

        Equip Dual Ingrams, and try to take them down while they are still on

coming down. After you kill them all of them, a cut-scene will introduce two 
of the most important characters in this game. When you regain control, you 
are standing in the middle of the room.

        Quickly go to the counter where you were hiding and look at the door 
on the right. Three thugs will come for you. Kill them and check the small 
room behind you. It looks like a storage room. Climb and go between the 
middle of the things there to find a few grenades. Back to the main room and 
through the door where the three thugs came from. Go to the end and turn 
right. A cut-scene.

 Chapter 4: No 'Us' in This	
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A graphic novel.
New York City. Last Night. Max's Apartment (Entire Building).

"The flames couldn't burn away my past.
 They only made the shadows behind me leap higher."

A cut-scene.

        You wake up to a knock at the door. A guest who runs as soon as 
someone starts firing!!! You gain control on the right side of the window. 
Look out of the window to find a sniper on the opposite side. Use Kalashnikov 
or Dual Ingrams to kill him if you want to. Go to the room on the right and 
use the phone. A cut-scene.

        Back and through the two main door!!! Turn left to see Mona exiting 
through the door. Go to that door to find it stuck. Go to the left corridor 
(right from the locked door). Keep going to find a cleaner being killed by an 
old woman. Talk to her by pressing the 'use' key. She will offer a shotgun, 
accept by talking again. Back out and check the open window on the right side 
of the apartment (old woman). You need to use the parapet on the outside to 
move on. Save.

        Jump out onto the first parapet, then to the second one diagonally. A 
van with cleaners appears below. Throw a timed grenade near the back door 
when it opens. Or jump to the third parapet and enter the window on the 
right. Now, equip Desert Eagle and marvel at its power and accuracy. One shot 
to the head of the cleaners below is enough to send them to hell!!!

        Anyways, enter the door on the left. A snoring old batty man on the 
couch!!! Shoot the TV to wake him up and hear what he has to say. Go through 
the next window on the right, and enter the window on the right. Hide behind 
the boxes and save. Two cleaners walking across!!! Kill them and a third will 
come from the left corridor. Kill him with your favorite weapon and a cool 
death sequence will occur. Quick load and try it out with grenades, Molotov 
or any other weapon you like. Totally cool!!!

        Take the left corridor and walk to the old deaf woman at the end. She 
will offer you some painkillers. Accept it and collect it from the bathroom 
that she unlocks. Go to her drawing room and through the door on the right. 
You come across another window. Save and exit.

        Out onto the ledge, turn left, and climb the scaffolding to reach the 
top. Enter the window on the top. A cut-scene. Use the camera to see 
something funny. Pick up the new weapon on the ground. Press the 'use' key to 
zoom in with the sniper rifle. Go to the phone-tapping instrument on the 
table and hear something funny. Take the door, and then enter the bathroom on 
the left. Check the shelf for a painkiller. Exit and go near the second door 
on the left. You will hear two cleaners coming your way. You can wait for 
them to come to you or you can go out to finish the job instantly.

        Go to the end of the corridor on the right, and you will see a woman 
locking herself in her house near the staircase beyond the doorway. Go near 
that doorway and hide behind the left of it. A cleaner may or may not throw a 
grenade. After he does, go into bullet time and move in. There are five 
cleaners on the staircase leading to the above floors. Use Kalashnikov, Dual 
Ingrams or Pump-action Shotgun to kill them all. Try to aim for their head 
for one-shot kill. After killing them, go to the seventh floor. You're on the 
4th floor right now.

        A locked door up ahead, you need to find the door code. Take the 
elevator on the left. Hide to the left of the left when it opens. Three 
cleaners will come for you. Send them to hell and exit the lift. You can take 
the stairs to the third floor to find a couple of ammo clips. Talk to the bum 
and he will tell you about Ed, the janitor.

        Go to the end of the middle corridor and enter the door on the right. 
Go down the stairs, and turn left, proceed to find Ed. A cut-scene. Go back 
up and peek around the door to find two cleaners patrolling the corridor. 
Kill them and take the lift back to the 7th floor. Exit the lift, and press 
the panel to unlock the door.

        Go through the door and take cover behind the wall. Three more 
cleaners coming from the room at the end!!! Use bullet time and Dual 
Ingrams/Shotgun to kill them, and enter the room they were coming from. Check 
the closet for a painkiller. Enter the bathroom on the left to find some more 
painkillers. Go to the room ahead and check the closet for goodies and come 
back. Save.

        And enter the door on the right. A cleaner is patrolling here. Kill 
him with your favorite weapon for a great death sequence. Quick load and try 
it out with other weapons if you feel like it. Enter the next room on the 
left, check the cupboards and go near the window. Save.

        Time to go out again!!! Exit the window and out on the ledge. Go 
left, right, right, turn left, and watch out for the gap in this ledge, jump 
over it, and jump onto the next ledge after the pipe. Turn right, go to the 
end, equip sniper rifle, save, and drop down to the ledge below. A cleaner 
starts to shoot at you from a window behind you. Turn around and snipe him.

        You see the gap in the ledge and a pistol beyond it. Collect the 
pistol and drop down the gap to the ledge below. Head to the right, and enter 
the window there. Collect the painkiller on the shelf, and go to the room on 
the left. Turn to your right to see a broken down (burned) doorway. Collect 
another painkiller on the shelf and through the doorway to end the level.

 Chapter 5: A Sign of Her Passage
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A cut-scene.
New York City. Last Night. Max's Apartment (Entire 'flaming' Building).

"What next? A kid with a bag full of guns and a head full of videogames turns 
the house into a shooting gallery. Breaks my heart."

        This is simply a continuation of the previous level. Go down the 
corridor and through the door you see at the end. Three cleaners are there, 
one in front of you, one on the above stairs and the last one on the stairs 
leading to the below floors. Watch out for the grenades they throw. Use 
Kalashnikov to kill them all and go to the top floors.

        Check the top of the three assorted boxes to find Kalashnikov ammo 
and other goodies. Go back to the original floor. Now, go down to the stairs 
until you come across a door jammed by a stick. This is the 3rd floor. Open 
the door to find a bum. You can wait to hear his sorry story or continue down 
the corridor to find a doorway to a room on the left blocked by fire.

        Back to the staircase, and go down to the bottom-most floor. Go 
through the double-door that you see to find a girl named Violet. Now, you 
have two comrades with you to take care of the cleaners. I had rather you 
killed them since the game is already so easy. Anyways, back through the 
double-door and go to the end of this corridor.

        Half-way down, three cleaners will come out from the room at the far 
end. Kill them and enter the door they came from on the left. Go down the 
stairs, right and again right, enter the utility room and turn off the valve 
to stop the fire. Check the lockers for painkillers and exit the room and 
check another locker on the right.

        Go up the stairs, and into the corridor to find three more cleaners. 
Bullet time and Kalashnikov to kill them all!!! Go back to the 3rd floor, and 
into the room blocked by the fire a while back. Check the bathroom on the 
right to find a couple of painkillers. Enter the room and go near the window.

        Climb out of the window on the left, and onto the ledge. Walk to the 
left of the ledge, when three cleaners attack you from the bottom floor. 
Snipe them one-by-one and continue walking on the ledge until you reach 
scaffolding. Quickly jump onto the scaffolding as three more cleaners have 
arrived on the floor below. Now, snipe the three cleaners from the 
scaffolding. You may not be able to snipe at least one of them. Go to the top 
of the scaffolding and jump diagonally onto the ledge to your left. Snipe any 
of the remaining cleaner from here and go to the edge of this ledge. Save.

        Jump onto the next scaffolding, and watch out!!! It can't take your 
weight and the surface will fall down. Don't do anything and let it wall. You 
will be safely deposited to the ground below. A van with 5 cleaners will 
arrive to the right of the scaffolding in the middle. Throw a timed grenade 
near the opening back door of the van. Boom!!! A few of them are dead 
already!!! Kill the remaining cleaners with Kalashnikov or Sniper Rifle along 
with bullet time. A cut-scene.

 Prologue
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A graphic novel.
New York City. Last Night. Police HQ.

"Hypothetically, if the only choice you've got is to do the wrong thing,
 then it's not really the wrong thing, it's more like fate.
 You have to do what you have to do."

A cut-scene.

        The officer in front of you will come and talk to you. Enter the 
doorway on your right and walk up to the two men sitting on the right. Back 
and turn left and then right. Where the cardboard is, click on the desk and 
computer there. The photo-frame is there too. A cut-scene.

        Another officer talks to you about Winterson's whereabouts and her 
life. He directs you to the 'Interrogation Lineup' Room straight from your 
desk. Go through the door to find a witness identifying the shooters at the 
Inner Circle Members' Place. Wait till they finish, Detective Winterson will 
say something to you on her way out. Go and talk to the witness. After that, 
come out of the room. A cut-scene.

        Go to bravura's office, from there go to the 'Rec Room' to find a 
couple of officer's watching TV. Exit that room and through the double door. 
Go down the stairs and through another double-door. You will see a hot woman 
talking to the officer behind the 'Reception' desk. Hear them out for a 
hilarious crime report!!! You can talk to both of them after they are done.

        Go to the 'Dispatch' room beside the counter for a few words. Exit 
and go to where the woman is sitting. To your right is a 'Briefing' room you 
can check. Press the projector to change the picture over there. And to your 
right is the toilet. Enter the toilet beside the phone for a comment from 
another officer.

        Now, go near the double door opposite the 'Dispatch' room. From 
there, go left and through the green door in the behind. Down the stairs and 
through another door to find a couple of officers talking to each other!!! 
Back and through the double door you came from. Near the bottom of the 
stairs, there another door marked 'Lockup'.

        Go down the stairs; turn right, into the corridor and through the 
metal door there. Through another metal door here, and down the corridor to 
your left!!! A cut-scene. Back near the desk, before going through the metal 
door; check the other door near it for a hilarious story. Then go back 
through the first metal door and use the phone there. A cut-scene. Boom!!!

        Take all the weapons from the locker and hide behind it. Three thugs 
will come through the door. Bullet time and headshots will get them alright. 
Now, go through that door, and towards Mona Sax's cell. Quickly take cover 
using the wall that is sticking out on the left side. Two thugs will come in 
after you. Equip desert Eagle and go for their head. The second one may 
through a grenade, so watch out for that. Kill the third one too with a 
couple of body shots if not headshot. Exit through that door.

        No matter what you do, don't go to the right of the door. First 
collect all the weapons and check the van for a couple of grenades. Now, 
equip Pump-action Shotgun and head right. Another van will come. Go to the 
back door of that van before it opens up completely and shoot whoever you 
can. Don't forget to use bullet time. And then kill the two who exited the 
van via side door. Collect all the weapons; walk up the slope on the left. A 
cut-scene.

 My wife and baby girl back. Unlimited ammo and a license to kill.
 Right then, more than anything, I wanted her."

right side of the stairs. At the end, you will find another door on the right 
side of the wall. Enter it. A cut-scene.

        No need to kill any of them, someone else will take care of them. Go 
forward and collect their weapon. A door on the far side on the left opens up 
and two cleaners come for you. Kill them and enter that room with cardboard 
cars. Go up the stairs and peek around the doorway to your left, to find 
another cleaner behind the next doorway on the left. Kill him and enter that 
room with cardboard people.

        Go through the doorway on the right. A cut-scene. Back off into the 
previous room and let someone else take care of them. Then go down the 
stairs, collect all the goodies, and enter the garage, the one with the 
'Cocktail' sign on top. Go right through the door on the left.

        Peek around the corner on the left to find a cleaner camping on top 
of a tunnel-like metal thingy and many more in the backdrop. There are a 
total of seven of them there. If you stand back, then your friend will take 
care of six of them. You will have to kill the one at the far end. Kill him 
and go near the door behind the last one. Another one will come through that 
door. Shootdodge backwards and kill that one. Collect all the weapons and go 
through that door. A cut-scene.

 Chapter 2: In the Middle of Something
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A cut-scene.
New York City. Last Night. Castling Insurance Companies Construction Site-
Condemned Building.

"Like always, the dead had all the answers I was missing."

        Quickly collect goodies from the van and hide behind the wall on the 
left of the small set of stairs. Two cleaners will come to look for their 
friend. Kill them and into the next room. Turn left, through the gate and go 
up the stairs there.  Go through the door to find the 'dangerous red boxes' 
in there. Shoot it from far, if you feel like it. Boom!!!       Go straight 
and through the double door on the left. Hide next to the pillar near the 
escalator. Two cleaners will down the escalator, kill them and proceed up the 
escalator.

        This double door is locked. Go to the other side and through that 
other double door. Notice the small boxes in the middle??? They are explosive 
canisters too!!! Shoot it from far to see how beautiful they look!!! All the 
doors are locked and you are stuck. How about blowing up those 'dangerous red 
boxes'??? Stand back and shoot it. Boom!!! Now, the lift door is open for you 
to continue in your vendetta against the cleaners!!! Drop down into the lift 
and exit through the bottom doors.

        Take the door on the right and again go near the door on the right. 
Save. Equip MP5, enter the next area and look up on the right side. A cleaner 
on the roof of a small cabin, zoom in and shoot to kill. Go round the left 
side and kill the two cleaners behind the green car. Look at the far end of 
the right side. Two more cleaners coming through there; zoom in and kill 
them. Or go close to them and kill them with Kalashnikov or any other weapon 
you feel like using. Check the cabin and its roof for goodies. Take the 
second door you saw on the right side.

        There are two doors here you can take. Let's just take the open 
doorway on the right first. Enter and go near the open doorway on the far 
left corner. Remember this place??? Go down the first set of stairs and take 
cover behind the wall in the middle. Peek around the corner to see three 
cleaners coming up the stairs. Kill them and collect there weapons. Now, go 
back to the place with two doors. Take the second and straighter door now.

        Go through the double door on the left side and peek around the 
corner on the left. Two cleaners coming your way; kill them and go left. Look 
into the long corridor using the wall as cover and you will see another 
cleaner coming your way. Let him come a bit close and then charge into that 
corridor killing him. Now, use that corridor wall to look into the previous 
corridor. Two cleaners coming from behind!!! Kill them and proceed through 
that long corridor.

        Enter the first door on the right for some painkillers and other 
goodies. Back out, and enter the first door on the left side for some more 
painkillers and a TV news update. Back out and enter the open door on the 
opposite side. Go towards the other open door of this room and take cover 
behind that door. Three cleaners will come to get it, give it to them. Go to 
the end of this long corridor and through the double door at the end. Look to 
your left to find a small door next to the double door. Enter and up the 
stairs to the floor above.

        Enter the room to find a locked double door and a big hole on the 
ground. Go through the other small door and up the stairs again. Peek in to 
the room on the right side before entering. A cleaner is standing near the 
double doorway. Kill him and enter that place. Again watch out for the holes. 
Two more cleaners will be coming from the left side. Kill them and head to 
the long corridor on the left.

        Watch out for another cleaner firing at you from the far end. Use the 
table standing against the left side wall to get near him. Want to get more 
up close and personal with him, go and take cover behind the long table just 
in front of that cleaner. Save. And now use all kinds of weapons against him 
for a cool death sequence.

        Now, take the doorway on the right and go to its other door. Exit and 
quickly hide behind the long table. There's a cleaner on the other side of 
the table. Use shotgun and bullet time. Kill him and go forward to kill 
another one near by and two after turning left. Go to the middle door to find 
it locked. Go to the left side and enter the small door there. Go through the 
hole in the wall on the right side.

        And open the door on the right side in here and retreat. Five of them 
will come for your blood. Equip shotgun, wait for them to come near you, go 
into bullet time and charge at them. Kill them with one shot each. See the 
red boxes in the middle on the left side??? There's a door beyond it. Enter 
it and then go through the door on the left yet again. A cut-scene.

        Collect all the goodies from the crates here. Go around to the other 
side and go near the pillar between the crates to find some more ammo. Take 
the double door to find that the path is broken. Take the small door near the 
crates and go up the stairs in to the room above. Go through the double door 
on the left side ahead.

        This walkway, too, is broken in the middle. But, you can jump to the 
other side, so go and jump. Three cleaners will fire at you from the ground 
floor. Snipe them with MP5 if you want to. Enter the room and collect the 
sniper ammo here. Then enter the lift doorway and jump onto the crates to 
reach the next floor.

        Collect the goodies and go through the double door on the right side. 
Go to the other side of the walkway and near the double door. Don't shoot the 
red boxes in the middle. Three guys in black suit will come out from that 
door. Kill them and enter the room. Who are those guys??? We will call them 
black-suit. Take the small door on the right and up the stairs into the room 
above.

        Go around the pillar in the middle, through the small door and up the 
stairs. A black-suit is inside the room. Kill him and enter. Take the double-
door on the left and walk up to the next double-door. Four black-suits are 
waiting for you inside. Equip Shotgun and Bullet time and enter the room, 
blasting them all. Remember, they now seem to take more damage, so watch out 
for it. Collect everything here and go through the small door on the other 
side. And enter the room on the left to find something horrific.

A graphic novel.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A cut-scene.
New York City. Last Night. Castling Insurance Companies Construction Site-
Condemned Building (Blowing up).

"The building's blowing up, that's what's going on!"

        Jump over the counter on the left, turn right, collect the 
painkillers from the red box on the left near the door, and then exit through 
the double-door. Head to your right and then enter the long corridor on the 
left. Halfway through the corridor and the floor will collapse. Enter the 
door on the right side and see a cleaner being blown away to hell!!! Proceed 
through the hole on the left-side wall and look at the cracked wall at the 
far end on the left. Shoot at the explosive canister on the table to create a 
hole in the wall. Boom!!!

        Jump through the hole onto the beams and follow it to another doorway 
at the far left corner. Enter and head through corridor on the right. Go down 
to the level below and turn around. Go to the end of this corridor to find 
another broken floor. Two cleaners are waiting for you on the right side in 
the level below. Drop down and kill them while staying to the right side, as 
the ceiling will collapse on the left side. After killing them, go through 
the only door, and head to the right side. A cleaner is waiting in the middle 
of the passage. Kill him and keep going forward. Turn right, near the end and 
you will come across a double door. Three cleaners are inside the room.

        Enter, and take cover behind the counter on the left after killing 
the cleaner on the other side of the counter. Shoot the explosives on the 
right side of the room. Boom!!! Kill the remaining two cleaners and collect 
the painkillers from the red box on the counter. Equip MP5 and go near the 
hole on the right, created by the explosion. There are four cleaners in the 
room below. Kill at least three of them from here. Use all the corners of the 
hole to locate the cleaners and then kill them with MP5 and scope. Drop down 
and kill the remaining cleaner/cleaners. Then, again drop down through the 
hole on the ground to the floor below.

        Go through the double door and check the long corridor on the left 
side for something really gross. The only time I felt sorry for a cleaner!!! 
Now, take the long corridor on the right side. Halfway through, you will come 
across a big hole on the left side wall. Go through it, and continue forward 
through another hole in the wall on the upper side of the room. Keep on 
running straight.

"I didn't know what Mona wanted, if it was the same thing I was after.
 To kill those who were trying to kill her,
 the bullet, real or imagined, lodged in her head routing her synapses.
 Driving her on."

A cut-scene.

        Look up and shoot the cleaner on the second floor to the left side. 
Go to the middle and head to the left to find a doorway. Enter and climb up 
to the top of the staircase. A cleaner is waiting at the top, kill him with 
shotgun and go one floor down. Equip Dragunov and go through the doorway, and 
kiss the wall on the other side of the door. Look up on the balcony on the 
other side of the walkway to find a cleaner. Snipe him and go to the other 
side of the room to find a doorway. Go up one level and enter the door. 
Quickly hide behind the boxes and snipe the cleaner on the opposite side 
balcony. Come back to the door and save.

        Go up the stairs and come back down when you hear gunshots and hide 
behind the boxes again, look towards the doorway. Three cleaners will come 
for your blood. Kill them all with shotgun. Now head to the top of the 
stairway, equip Dragunov and go through the doorway. A cleaner with Ingram is 
waiting on the left side of the room. Kiss the wall opposite the door and let 
him go to the elevator on the right. Now, peek around the wall on the right 
and snipe him. Now, take the elevator to the floor below.

        Check this floor for painkillers and enemy weapons and go through the 
door on the right marked with a 'DANGER' SIGN. Quickly take cover behind the 
wall on the right side, and two cleaners will come for you. Kill them with 
shotgun. Then, snipe the cleaner at the far end of the corridor with 
Dragunov. Go forward and enter the first room on the right to find another 
cleaner outside the room's second doorway on the opposite side. Kill him with 
Dual Ingrams and collect all the enemy's weapons, and painkillers too, to get 
a MP5. Now head to right side from the end of the corridor to come a 
staircase and a narrow walkway. Save.

        Go up the plank and into the narrow walkway, and quickly retreat 
back. Hide behind the large box to the left and wait for five cleaners to 
come after you. Use shotguns and bullet time to kill them all. Collect all 
their weapons for MP5 ammo. Again, go into the walkway and up the stairs on 
the left side. Hide behind the box to the left and kill the cleaner at the 
far end of the corridor. Go forward and down the next staircase to the floor 
below for some Desert Eagle ammo. Back up and go forward and up another set 
of stairs to the top floor. Enter the room on the right side of the walkway. 
Save.

        Go into the first room on the opposite side and kill the cleaner 
outside the second door of the room. Peek around the first door to find a 
cleaner on the left side hiding behind boxes. Kill him with MP5. Shootdodge 
through the second door in to the opposite room and then kill the cleaner on 
the left of that room's doorway. Take cover behind the left side of the 
room's doorway and wait for three black-suits to come after you. Kill them 
when they do. Collect all the Kalashnikov's. Take cover into the same room. 
Equip Dragunov and snipe the three black-suits at the far end of the 
corridor. Go near them and through the door at the end of the corridor.

 Chapter 5: Out of the Window
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A cut-scene.
New York City. Last Night. Castling Insurance Companies Construction Site---- 
Building & Balcony (Mona Sax).

"Throw the rules out of the window,
 odds are you'll go that way too."

        Exit the room and look back into the room. A cleaner jump into the 
room from the top, kill him and collect all the ammo from that room. Exit the 
room again and go right. Past the first room on the right (it is closed), and 
stop near the second one (a broken room with a broken doorway and a plank 
hanging out from the doorway). Go to the extreme of the plank and jump onto 
the metal platform leading to the room on the other side. Check the room for 
some painkillers and come back to the metal platform. Jump from the extreme 
of the platform onto the plank (if it has not fallen down). If it has, then 
jump onto the broken wall to your right, left from the plank.

        Go right again, and through the wooden double-doorway (without the 
doors), and you will come across a room with a balcony. Equip MP5 and go into 
the room and onto the balcony. Look to your left side and you will see a 
cleaner on a roof of a building slightly to your left. Try to snipe him with 
MP5. If you miss him, then we will get him later. Exit the balcony and the 
room, equip Kalashnikov or MP5, and head to the right of the room. Peek 
around the broken wall on the left to see a black-suit coming through a door 
on the left. Kill him and collect his weapon and painkiller. Again, collect 
the painkillers from the red box and stand against that door. Save.

        Equip Kalashnikov and MP5, and go through the door. Keep running 
ahead and kill the black-suit in front of you. Stand under the ramp near the 
black-suit's (the one you killed) position. Bullet time and slowly move 
backwards while looking up. Shoot as soon as you see their head. Kill them 
all one-by-one. Save. Go up the ramp and collect all the Kalashnikov and 
painkillers that they have dropped. Come back down and go to the other side 
of this room. Through the door, left and forward, and through another door!!! 
A cut-scene. Save.

       Go into bullet time kill the guy in front of the doorway. Quickly 
equip Dragunov, and look down to the extreme right of the open yard below. 
Three black-suits will be running towards Max. Snipe them before they get 
half-way near Max. Now, Max will also join the fight. And you will have to 
protect him and must not let him get killed. If he gets killed, then it's 
'GAME OVER' for you too.

        Go through the new door (where you just killed a black-suit after the 
cut-scene), and then another and kill the black-suit thug here (if you didn't 
snipe the thug on the roof of another building to your left earlier). Proceed 
to the end of the roof and onto the ramp at the extreme end and look down.

        Notice the small cabins to the left of the yard. Three black-
suits/cleaners will come out onto the walkway from the cabins on the first 
floor. And two will appear on the yard to the right of the cabins. One will 
come from the right side of the yard (straight at the end of the yard) and 
two more will come out from behind the cabin and in front of the cabin. Snipe 
them all with Dragunov. A cut-scene.

        Two more thugs will appear, one from behind the cabin and one on top 
of the cabins. Snipe them again. Another cut-scene. Two more thugs will 
appear. You can kill one of them but the other will be hidden behind the 
cabins. Max will tell you to find another way.

        Turn around and go to the beginning of the roof (after two rooms). 
Collect the ammos from the floor. Take the door on the left. Go to the 
beginning of the room and through the door. This is the room with the steel 
ramps where you killed three black-suits on top of them. Go to the other side 
of the room and through the door.

        Head to left and peek around the wall to find two thugs behind that 
wall. Kill them and go to the balcony of the room on the left side. This is 
the first balcony of the level. From here, snipe the thug hiding to the right 
side of the cabin. Two more thugs will appear from the top floor of the 
cabin. Snipe them and turn around.

        Exit this room and go straight and then left. Kill the black-suit 
near you. Equip a scope-weapon and snipe the goon at the far end of the 
corridor. Go forward and into the room where you started the level. Boom!!! 
If you didn't blow the explosive barrel at the end of the corridor earlier, 
then two thugs will be blown to bits. If you did, then kill the two thugs 
yourself and exit the room. Go through the door on the left.

        Go forward, collect painkillers and hide behind the big box on the 
left. Wait and two black-suits will come for you. Kill them. Another one may 
or may not come for you. Kill him anyways. Collect everything and go through 
the door at the end.

        Head left and then right. Take cover behind the wall on the left and 
kill the two thugs here. Head to the balcony at the end, and kill the thug at 
the top of the stairs to your right. Now look down to the yard below, close 
to the balcony and snipe the thug. A cut-scene. Go up the stairs now and into 
the room above. Exit this room and head to the right. Jump down to the floor 
below to exit this level.

 Chapter 6: The Genius of the Hole
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A cut-scene.
New York City. Last Night. Castling Insurance Companies Construction Site---- 
Building, Balcony & Yard (Mona Sax).

"The genius of the hole:
 No matter how long you spend climbing out,
 you can still fall back down in an instant."

        You still got to protect Max Payne. Snipe the only thug you see on 
the scaffolding up ahead and watch a cool death sequence. Walk up to the 
scaffolding and look down to the yard below on the left side. Two cleaners on 
the cabin walkway!!! Snipe the one near the corner (turn) and keep aiming 
there. Two more thugs will try to take that turn. Snipe them too. If you miss 
them, don't worry, Max will get them. A cut-scene.

        Now, snipe the gas cylinders on the second floor. Boom Boom!!! Two 
more thugs will come out on the first floor's walkway. Kill them too. Turn 
around and exit the two rooms. Equip Kalashnikov, turn right and go to the 
end of this walkway. Kiss the wall on the far side and peek around the big 
box to the right to find a couple of black-suits coming after you followed by 
two more. Let them come to you. Kill them with bullet time and head shots 
using the big box as cover. Collect their weapons and the four painkillers 
that they have dropped.

        Go through the door on the right>left marked 'Danger--Hard Hat Area'. 
Turn right and go through the second door of the room. Go straight and turn 
right to find explosive barrels and ramps leading to a scaffolding/balcony. 
Go to the balcony after collecting Molotovs near the ramp on the right side. 
Look down the scaffolding to the yard below on the right side to find a cabin 
with a thug occupying the first floor walkway. Go to the metal platform of 
the scaffolding that sticks out the most (on the left side) and snipe him. On 
this side of the cabin near the boxes, four more thugs will appear. Snipe 
them before they kill Max Payne. Max will help you too here.

        Look up to the metal walkway above you. Two more thugs will come from 
there once you finish talking to Max. Quickly run back halfway to the middle 
of this platform and look at the walkway above. Start shooting them as soon 
as you see them. Kill them and climb up the metal ramp. Go into the room on 
the right side of the top level. Exit this room, go right and then left. You 
will be outside a room leading to another scaffolding. If you go there, then 
you will have to kill two more thugs. We will go in. You can try yourself 
without going in.

        When you reach the scaffolding, look to your right to find a black-
suit running from the left to the right of the bridge at the far end. You can 
snipe him and watch a cool death sequence. Turn around and take cover near 
the right side of the doorway of this room. Two more thugs are coming from 
where you came a few moments ago. Kill them using Bullet time and your 
favourite weapon.

        Exit this room and head to your left. Go towards the door at the far 
end. A black-suit will come out from that room (if he hasn't already, if you 
take too long to kill the previous two thugs, then he may have already 
entered this area) when you near it. Kill him and enter. Kill the black-suit 
who is climbing up. If you didn't kill the thug on the bridge, then there 
will be another thug camping on the platform below. Kill him and go down. 
Take the only doorway here.

        Head to the left side until you reach a bridge. If you didn't go near 
the scaffolding earlier, then there will be two thugs on the other side. If 
you did then go forward to the other side!!! As soon as you enter the bridge, 
a thug will appear on the other side. Shootdodge backwards/forwards and kill 
him.

        Go forward to the other side and peek around the corner to your left 
to find a few thugs. Show yourself and they will run up the staircase. And 
two more will come after you. Either use cover and wait for them, or use 
bullet time and a rapid-fire weapon to kill them. Collect the five 
painkillers and head to the left side and peek around to the top of the 
staircase to find two thugs. Kill them and head to right side of this room.

        Go down the stairs and ramps. You will walk into two black-suits 
while going down. Kill them and enter the big hall one floor below. There are 
three thugs here. You can take cover behind the box on the right and kill 
them. Or charge at them using bullet time and shoot them and the cylinders. 
After killing them, go down the stairs on the other side.

        There are two thugs on the right side and two on the top of the 
stairs on the left side. Use m4 Carbine and bullet time, and start shooting 
the thugs on the right side first. After quickly killing them, shoot the 
cylinder on top of the left staircase platform. The two thugs will run down 
the ramp. Kill them.

        Head down the staircase and kill the two thugs that you will meet 
while going down. At the bottom level, take cover behind the left of the 
doorway and wait for two thugs to come for you. Kill them when they near the 
doorway. Exit and run up to the big crate that you see up ahead.

        Look up at the scaffolding to find two more thugs. Snipe them. Walk 
forward and head to the big yellow crane on the left. Turn left; go forward 
and up the ramp. Head to the single cabin on the left!!! Go to the left side 
of it, collect painkillers and hide behind the big crate/box. Two thugs will 
come that way after finishing their talk. Kill them. And head to the left 
side corner and enter the lift. Use it. A cut-scene.

of this room. Go to the back of this room and hide behind the cubicles. Two 
thugs will come in. Keep hiding, and wait.

        A guard will come in and the thugs will shoot him. The guard has 
dropped his weapon on the ground. Wait for the thugs to come after you and go 
round the right side and pick up his weapon. Now what??? Kill them both using 
bullet time. Collect their weapon, check the cubicles and cabinets for 
painkillers, and go through the other door (from where the guard came in).

        Turn right, go forward and enter the door on the left side. Collect 
the weapons and painkillers from the panels on the left and head towards the 
other door on the right side. As you near it, the door will open. Quickly

it. Equip MP5 and headshot-kill them when they come near the doorway. Check 
the cabinets beside that door, and go through to the other room. Check the 
steel cabinets at the far end and go through the other door of this room.

        Watch the TV and then head left. Turn left at the end and go forward. 
The room on the left side has nothing for you. Go forward and peek into first 
room on the right side. Two black-suits are talking. You can wait for them to 
come out or attack them using bullet time-Kalashnikov/MP5. After killing 
them, collect painkillers from the back of the room and go through the door 
on the right side near the painkiller cabinet.

        Now, go to the other door of this room. Open it and use it as cover 
and wait. Three black-suits will come for you. Kill them with a rapid-fire 
weapon, but beware as they throw grenades. Go to the end of this corridor, 
and head towards the door at the far end. When you near it, a black-suit or 
two may or may not come through the door.

        Enter the room and kill the two black-suits here at the back of the 
room (if they didn't). Another black-suit may or may not come through the 
other door of this room. And go through the other door of this room into the 
other room. A black-suit here (if he didn't), kill him, check the closets, 
and through the other door of this room.

        You can watch the TV here. Now, go through the single door marked 
'Exit' on the right side, and retreat. Use the left side of the doorway as 
cover and wait for thugs to come through that door. Seven of them will come 
one-by-one. Kill them all using bullet time and MP5. Now, go through the door 
again and go to the bottom of the stairs.

        Go through the double door marked 'EXIT' and hide (crouch) behind the 
police car. Four more black-suits will come for you. Go into bullet time when 
they near you, kill the one nearest to you and crouch again. Repeat till you 
kill all four of them. Kill the one on the right side first, then the one on 
the left side, and lastly the two at the farthest on the right side. Now go 
towards the other side of this area. Another will come out from the room near 
the car at the end. Kill him, collect all the weapons, and go beyond the last

 Chapter 3: A Mob-War
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A cut-scene.
New York City. Earlier Tonight. Slum Neighbouhood.

"The night was grim as death.
 I felt right at home.
 Dope-peddling murderers in their expensive suits were crawling out of
 the woodwork all around me.
 The only suits they were going to wear after tonight were body-bags."

        Go through the door in front of you. Collect Molotovs from the shelf 
and go through the other doorway. Stand in front of the green door with a 
rapid-fire weapon equipped. A couple of black-suits will come through it, and 
another will come from the stairs on the right. Waste them using bullet time. 
Collect painkillers from the thugs and go one floor up the stairs. Max will 
say something after seeing the V-Valkyr sign on the wall. You can check the 
room on the left for a short cut. But, we will go one floor up.

        You will see an explosive canister (green) on the ground, near a 
patched up broken wall. Shoot it. Boom!!! The wall has a hole now!!! Go 
through it, and another door. Go through the white door on the right and kill 
the three thugs using bullet time. Now, stand against the window and kill the 
two black-suits in the opposite building.

        Go back to the previous room, collect goodies from the box on the 
floor, and go through the hole on the right side wall. A man is watching TV 
in the room!!! Go in that room, collect painkiller from the shelf and come 
back out. Go through the white door on the left side. Out onto the balcony 
and through the door on the right.

        Go to the back and look up the stairs. A black-suit is coming down 
followed by three of Gognitti's men. Kill the black-suit, and wait at the 
bottom using cover. Kill the three thugs coming down (they like to throw 
grenades, watch out for it) and go up the stairs. Collect goodies at the back 
of the stairs and go two floors down.

        Wait near the stairs to the bottom floor, and two thugs will come up. 
Kill them and take cover using the left side of the doorway of the room near 
the stairs. A thug may come running out. Kill him and go inside. Collect 
goodies from the box and go through the green door. Kill the thug here (if he 
didn't run out).

        Go out onto the metal girder outside the right side of the room. Use 
the wooden plank connecting the metal girders and head to the left and 
through the window of the opposite building. As you step onto the first 
wooden plank, all hell breaks loose below you. Keep running and through the 
window. Let the two groups fight it out and you go through the door of this 
room. Left and through the doorway of this room too.

        Go one floor down and peek around the stairs to your left to find two 
thugs talking. Kill them and collect painkiller from them. Now, go to the top 
floor and peek into the room to find two thugs watching something wicked on 
the TV. Kill them and go to the bathroom at the end to collect painkillers.

        Go back one floor down and through the white door here (near the 
stairs leading down). Again, go through the door on the right side, near the 
first door. Peek around the shelves to the left. Watch, and one of the thugs 
falls down!!! Kill the other one and go out onto the metal girder outside the 
window. Save. Jump onto the second girder and continue down the wooden plank 
and through the window on the left.

        Out of the bathroom, collect painkillers from the shelf on the right, 
and go through the blackened-white door behind you. A cut-scene. Follow them 
to the bottom floor. One of them opens the door. They go out onto the street 
to the left. Exit the door, stay near the door; and watch them go forward. A 
few black-suits will attack them, seven of them. The three comrades will kill 
a few of them, and the survivors will come for your blood. Go back into the 
building and wait for them to come near the doorway. When they do, kill them 
all and exit the building again!!! Go to the left, where your comrades went 
earlier.

        When you come across a road to the left side, enter it. After a few 
steps, two more black-suits come from the right side. Kill them and keep 
going forward. After a few more steps, one of Vinnie's thugs come from the 
right side. However, he knows you and will try to kill you. If any of the 
three comrades survived the fire-fight, he will warn them about you and they 
too will try to kill you. Kill them all and go forward.

        At the very end, both the roads are blocked by burning fence. Turn 
left and look at the burning fence blocking the left side road. There are two 
explosive barrels here, BELOW the DELI shop signboard. Shoot it. Boom!!! The 
shops doors are open now. Go inside, collect all the ammo and come back 
outside. Go back to the previous road, and look on the right side. You will 
find a green door, through which the last of Vinnie's thugs came out from. Go 
through it.

        Go near the wooden fence and take cover on the left of it. A black 
van will run over a thug. A few black-suits will come out of it and come for 
you. Kill them and walk towards the van. You need to cross the van and go out 
onto that road.

 Chapter 4: Dearest of All My Friends
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A graphic novel.
New York City. Earlier Tonight. Vinnie's Used Car Lot.

"Well that was fun, in a fucking terrible, sick, not-at-all-fun way."

A cut-scene.

        Follow Vinnie into the small room. There's a door on the right, go 
through it & collect all the M4 Carbine ammo, drop the stack of boxes to get 
some painkillers & grenades, and come back out into the small room, where 
Vinnie is hiding. Close the left door and use it as cover. Four black-suits 
will come after you into the room. Kill them.

        Now, Vinnie Gognitti will exit the small room and run straight 
towards the other end. Quickly go to the back-side of the small room (where 
Vinnie was hiding), open the closet and collect Molotovs & grenades, and you 
too exit this small room. But, instead of following him, you turn left (you 
can get a couple of painkillers from that steel closet before going out) and 
go through the window.

        A black-suit will be standing on top of the wall up ahead. Equip a 
rapid-fire weapon (MP4 Carbine preferably) and blast him away. A cool death-
sequence if you do it quickly!!! Run up to the side of the right side car 
(near the middle where you shoot that thug on top of the wall) and look up. 
Four cleaners will come, go into bullet time and shoot them. First shoot the 
one in front of you and then the one on the left and so on. Try to get head 
shots and keep on shooting them till they are dead.

        After they are dead, resume your position by the side of the car on 
the right. Four more cleaner will come from the same spot. Kill them quickly 
and then, look at the other side of the wall to find two more cleaners 
running towards the house. Kill them quickly, you can use shootdodge here. 
After killing those two, look at cars' side to find another black-suit. Kill 
him and go inside the house through the door on the left.

        Vinnie Gognitti must be waiting there for you. If not, no problem. 
There is brown cupboard in this room on the right with a shotgun in it (if 
you want it). Go through the only door in this room, there's a painkiller 
here in the green closet on the right (don't waste time, come back later), 
and then through the double-door on the left, and through another double-door 
on the right. Look to you left to find a couple of thugs entering through the 
window near the big stack of box. Kill them.

        Follow Vinnie Gognitti to find out that he can't get through the 
small door. Look back, two more thugs are coming in through window (near the 
first two thugs' window). Go & kill them, and come back to the small door. 
Two thugs will get in through that door, do them a favour and kill them too. 
Collect the painkillers from the steel close behind you (opposite the small 
door). Now, Vinnie will go to the other side of the room and through the 
double door. You do the same!!!

        Vinnie Gognitti will take the elevator, you don't!!! Stand on the 
left side of the double-door near the elevator. Four black-suits will come 
through there. Kill them and look towards the first double-door. Two more 
thugs will come through there, kill them and go through the double-door near 
the elevator. Look at the top of the shelf to find a few boxes. Shoot them 
down or jump to get a few painkillers & grenades. You have the time now to 
collect all the enemy weapons and painkillers throughout the place. Do it and 
then go up the staircase near the elevator.

        Take your position at the top of the staircase as four more black-
suits will come up shortly. Kill them when they do and go through the door 
into the house. Vinnie Gognitti will have a few stupid things to say to you, 
ignore him and check the closet for goodies. Now, follow him (yes, his stupid 
talk does end). Vinnie Gognitti will stop in front of the TV, switch it off 
or shoot it or watch it!!! You can also go to Vinnie's bedroom and check his 
voice mail. Once the cartoon is over, Vinnie will take cover behind the bar. 
You can also find a couple of painkillers there. Now, go out through the 
glass doors. One of the thugs will try to come up, kill him. Equip MP5 and 
snipe the two more black-suits camnping below.

        Vinnie is happy and ready to go!!! You jump down before he does. A 
van will break into the yard. Go into bullet time and kill the three black-
suits inside it. Quickly go through the passage behind you, where Vinnie is 
headed. Get in front of him, and go stand near the big green tank and big 
box. Another van will come, with four black-suits inside it. Kill the two 
thugs making their way through the two big boxes and then kill the one behind 
the big box & the green tank. Lastly kill the only thug left and camp near 
the wall behind the van. Three more thugs will come from the top, kill them 
all.

        Head back through the two boxes to the middle, and go through the 
small door between the two collapsible doors. You will find that Vinnie 
Gognitti is standing on top of a car. Check out the shelves on the right to 
find a few painkillers on the top of the small boxes. Then go up the stairs 
and click/use the control panel hanging on the broken railing connected with 
the red wire. The car comes up with Vinnie on top!!!

        Hide behind the two large boxes behind you and let the thugs come up. 
Vinnie takes cover behind the boxes too. When they do come up, blast them 
away with a weapon of your choice. Now follow Vinnie to the other end of the 
passage and go down the stairs. Four more thugs will come for you down the 
stairs. Take cover behind the pillar near the staircase and look at the 
stairs. Wait and blast them away when they make their way down the stairs. Go 
through the double-door and head towards Vinnie Gognitti's car. A cut-scene.

 Chapter 7: Love Hurts
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A graphic novel.
New York City. Earlier Tonight (just before Now). Mona's Funhouse, The Manor 
(Alfred Woden's).

"There are no choices, nothing but a straight line. 
 The illusion comes afterwards, when you ask 'why me?' and 'what if?'
 When you look back, see the branches, like a pruned Bonsai tree,
 or a forked lightning. If you had done something differently,
 it wouldn't be you, it would be someone else looking back,
 asking a different set of questions."

A cut-scene.

        Take cover behind the van and let Mona Sax kill all of the black-
suits in sight. Eventually, you will get a cinematic death sequence followed 
by a cut-scene. Now, run up to the van in the middle and take cover on the 
left side of it. Look at the top railings on the bottom right side to find a 
couple of black-suits there. Snipe them with Sniper Rifle and hold your 
position behind the van.

        The Manor door will open and a thug will come out, kill him & equip 
Sniper rifle again. Look inside the building to find another black-suit. 
Snipe him, collect all the goodies outside and check the pile up at the far 
end near the van, and then, enter the building.

        Once inside the door will lock-up by itself. Quickly go up the stairs 
and take position on the right side doors, near the plant. The ceiling on the 
left side will fall down first. As soon as the left side ceiling is down, run 
up to that side before the ceiling of this side falls down on your head.

        As soon as the ceiling is down, the next door opens up and a black-
suit will attack you. Kill him and use the door as cover to check the next 
room. Another black-suit will be camping near the piano on the bottom left 
side. Shootdodge through the door and kill him, and watch out, he may chuck a 
grenade at you.

        Now, go through the glass-door on the right side and take cover 
behind the barrel. Two thugs will come from either side. Kill the thug on the 
left side first, the one in the yard. And then kill the other one on the 
right in the passage. Now, wait for Mona to finish the rest of the guys. When 
she does, a cut-scene will begin.

        You regain control in the middle of the yard. The shutters are up and 
you will find a couple of thugs camping on the other side of the glass door 
on the left. Kill them, collect the weapons and a couple of painkillers 
scattered on the yard, and go through the glass door. Turn left and take the 
door on the right side. Check the closet to find a few painkillers and watch 
the TV if you must.

        Open the other door of the room and retreat back into the room, and 
then, wait for them to come. A couple of them will come through the door, 
kill them and enter the next room. Go between the first two cabinets and look 
up to the second floor, behind you. You will see a thug who will go round the 
corridor above. Kill him if you feel like it. Now, you can hang on in this 
room and kill a few more thugs who appear in the above corridor. Just keep 
moving to & fro and use the environment (closets) as cover. Or, you can 
simply go back to the previous room and wait for Mona Sax to take care of all 
the black-suits.

        After she is done killing, go back into that room and she will 
continue forward. You, in the mean time, take your position on the right side 
of the first closet on the left while facing the door, and wait for a couple 
of enemies to come through it. When they do, kill them and wait for another 
set of three black-suits!!! When they too come, please do kill them all and 
proceed through the door into the long corridor.

        Check all the closets for painkillers and proceed down the long 
corridor straight. Open the door, and take cover behind the first table right 
in front of you. Make sure not to blow up the explosive canisters, or you 
will be blown to bits too. Now, kill the thug on your right side, and then, 
retreat back into the previous corridor. And let Mona Sax take care of the 
black-suits. However, you can open the door and shoot at the explosive 
canisters now.

        After the gun-shots die down, re-enter the area, collect all the 
weapons, blow up the canisters (if it's still there & if you feel like it), 
and then, go through the opposite door at the far end.

        Look around the corner to find a thug on the first landing of the 
stairs. Shoot him and carefully check the above corridor on the right side. 
You will find a thug camping there. Chuck a grenade or two to kill him, or 
simply snipe him, and wait. Three more thugs will come down the stairs to 
get. Kill them when they do and move up the stairs. Check the closet for 
goodies and go through the door on the far right corner corridor.

        Check all three steel cabinets for goodies. Check the small screen in 
the left hand corner to see a few more interesting developments in the plot. 
And then go through the other door. Watch the TV if you must and go through 
the other door of this room too. Watch out as almost immediately, two more 
thugs will come through the next door on the right side. Go into bullet time 
and kill them and wait for another one to come through that same door in a 
while. Kill him and then move out!!!

        Keep running to the end of the balcony, go into bullet time and go 
down the stairs. Shoot the thug standing a few steps away from the staircase, 
turn around, and go around the covered passage to find another thug behind 
the staircase to the left, near a pile up. Kill him and go towards the 
staircase and kill the thug who comes down that staircase. Watch out, he may 
throw a Molotov.

        Collect everything and go up the staircase. The other door is now 
open, go through it. You will see that Mona is still on the case. Turn left 
and be ready as another thug comes through the door. Kill him.

        An interesting fun fact - You can jump down to the floor below 
without dying. You probably recognize this place. Now, go to the next room, 
the one with the piano. The door on the right, which you took earlier, is 
locked. In stead, the door on the left will open up and two more black-suits 
will attack you. Kill them and go out through that door. Voila, you're back 
in the previous yard, the one you just crossed. Now, go up the stairs and 
through the same door on the left.

        You're back in the room with the big hole in the middle. Just go 
through the next door and the one after that too. You will again see and talk 
to Mona Sax. Take the door on the left and go right. Check the closets on the 
way. And then, go through the door at the far end.

        You will see a couple of bald black-suits in the middle firing at 
someone. Just toss a grenade at them. And if one of them still survives, 
shoot him. Now, just wait for Mona Sax to finish off the rest of them down 
below. A cut-scene.

 Chapter 8: That Old Familiar Feeling
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A cut-scene.
New York City. Earlier Tonight (just before Now); Now. Bowels of The Manor 
(Alfred Woden's).

"We are willing to suffer, to die for the things we care about.
 For love, for the right choices."

        You must collect your enemies' weapons in this level. It is a 
necessity for your success in this level as you start off only with a Desert 
Eagle (10 shots).

        Go forward and open the door but don't go through. Use the left side 
of the door as cover, look into the next room by moving your mouse and aim 
for the thug's head. After killing him, go into that room and collect the 
thug's weapon. A soon as a Panic Room (a cabin) falls down behind you, go 
into it and press the switch near the door. Door closes saving you from the 
explosion outside. Boom!!! A few (3 of them) of your enemies died because of 
the explosion!!! Collect all the painkillers and then go outside and collect 
their weapons.

        Now, go to the middle and look down the big gap in the wall to the 
lower level. A black-suit appears below, shoot him and drop down. Quickly 
look up to find a thug shooting at you from the 2nd floor. If you can shoot 
him quickly and make him fall down, then you can get a couple of painkillers. 
Anyways, quickly go through the next (only) door as a time-bomb barrel falls 
down from above.

        Once through the door, use the pillar near the shelves on the left to 
hide. You need to do the following quickly as this place is gonna blow in a 
while. Once you see the two thugs, move out, shoot them, collect Kalashnikov 
ammo from the cardboard box in the middle, and collect their weapons & 
painkillers, and go through the next door. Don't stop near the door; keep 
moving forward as Vladimir Lem is shooting at you from the top.

        Go up the stairs, and keep on moving. Watch out for falling ceiling 
halfway through. Jump over gap to the other side. Go to the end and through 
the door. Go into bullet time after you're halfway through this passage as 
two more black-suits will charge at you. Kill them and go through the other 
door at the end.

        Go up the staircase after killing the thug who is hiding beneath the 
staircase behind the card-board boxes. At the top, open the door and retreat 
back. Boom!!! Now, go through the door and look around the corner to find two 
more thugs on the first landing. Kill them and go up the stairs. Again, look 
around the corner to find two more thugs at the top. One of them will come 
for you. Kill one after the other.

        Wait for Vladimir Lem to finish with his talk, he and the two other 
black-suits will retreat into the room; and the glass door will open up. Open 
the door and retreat and wait. The two black-suits will come out after you in 
a while; when they do, kill them and enter the room. You can check out the TV 
here for a surprising bit of news; check out the telephone to hear Alfred 
Woden's voice mail, collect all the goodies (painkillers, weapon ammo, etc.), 
and then take the lift to the upper level.

        Take cover on the left side of the lift as you are attacked as soon 
as the lift gates open up. The thugs will move to the left side of the room, 
and then come back to this side. When they do, take aim and blast them away 
with a rapid-fire weapon!!! See the walkway on the right side??? Exit the 
lift and quickly move under that walkway. A black-suit will appear on the 
walkway. Slowly move backwards slightly and fill him up with bullets. Collect 
the painkillers near the bed and go through the door on the right side.

        Go through the door, and press the switch panel and retreat back into 
the room. Look around the door to the top of the stairs to see that Vladimir 
Lem has taken refuge behind a steel cabinet and presses the lift switch 
again. Again go to the switch panel, press it, and retreat. While the lift's 
on its way, you go out and shoot the black-suit who is camping at the top, 
and retreat.

        When the lift comes down, take it, press the switch (white part) and 
crouch to hide. Vladimir Lem can still shoot you though. You return fire!!! 
When lift reaches the halfway mark, Vladimir Lem will run away to another 
room. When he does, keep on shooting at the door (whatever part that you can 
see) as two more black-suits will come through it. Kill whoever survives, 
collect all the enemies' weapons (check the walkway area also) and go through 
the door yourself.

        A cut-scene. Now, this is final battle (call it A Boss Battle, if you 
wish). You need to keep on strafing to the right, in circles. Don't stop for 
too long in one place as Vladimir Lem keeps on chucking grenades at you. As 
soon as he does, get out of harms way and look up. You will have to shoot 
down the thing he is in. If you take too long, then the ground will have big 
holes (because of the grenades) and you will have to watch out for it. If you 
run out of ammo (which is nearly impossible) then you can get more ammo by 
slightly opening the last door, and going in just a bit.

        You need to aim for the small red pegs (bolt, hook, clip, etc.) which 
are holding the thing up with the ceiling. Look at the strings-like side, and 
look up at the top of it. You will see red dots (pegs) where it is touching 
the metal bolt. Shoot it and it will fall down. You need to shoot three of 
the four pegs which are holding it up. If you miss don't worry and start 
strafing again as soon as he throws another one. Once you do, the thing falls 
down.

        Now, you will need to shoot four more pegs that is holding up the 
triangular shape (don't know what to call it) that is attached to the 
ceiling. The pegs are at the bottom of the triangle metal. Shoot it to make 
it fall. A cut-scene. Now, you can see Vladimir Lem. Keep on strafing and 
also try to shoot him up. But, watch out for the Molotovs that he throws at 
you. Also, he will randomly shoot at you too. When you shoot him enough, he 
will fall back. A cut-scene.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

        This game has a slightly different ending which you can access by 
beating the game on the highest difficulty setting, "Dead On Arrival" mode.

Q) Is it worth it to beat the game on "Dead On Arrival" mode simply for the
   secret ending???

A) Nope, it is not. They have simply changed and rearranged the last graphic
   novel of the game to get a different ending. But, the game is so good &
   short that you can always play it again.

        If you're looking forward to beating this game on "Dead On Arrival" 
mode, and finding out the secret ending yourself, then read no more.

        In the last graphic novel of the game, they have changed the sentence 
structure, and added a couple of new dialogues, which in turn, gives us a new 
ending to the game. In this new ending, Mona Sax survives too!!!

Here below, is the changed bit which you can read on:

After the cut-scene involving Max & Mona (they are shown kissing), you go 
through the double-door and find a medical kit on the ground with three 
painkillers. Now, go into the ICU-Intensive Care Unit Receptionist Booth on 
the left of the kit and use the phone to hear the voice of the main villain 
of Max Payne 1. You will get to hear Nicole Horne say, "Is this the Payne 
Residence". Nicole Horne says this line in the Max Payne 1 Prologue to make 
sure that her thugs have reached Max's house.

After you kill your first enemy, you go through the door to get a cut-scene. 
Exit this room by the other door and you will come across a series of 
drawings in crayon taped to a window that summarizes the initial plot of the 
first Max Payne.

Drawing 1: shows a police car (Max Payne) heading home.

Drawing 2: shows a happy family-Dad, Mom, & A Baby-girl (the American Dream
           come true).

Drawing 3: shows something which makes a design like V- signifying the Valkyr
           drugs & Junkies (valkyr addicts).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 1) Dick Justice - TV Series #1 - Parody of Max Payne 1 /
--------------------------------------------------------
If you watch the first TV in this level, then you will come across Dick 
Justice. The interesting thing about it is that you will get to see a parody 
of Max Payne 1. Dick Justice is, simply put, a parody made on the life of Max 
Payne. In your first encounter with Dick Justice in this level, you will 
witness the proceedings of the first level of Max Payne 1, where Dick 
Justice, like Max Payne, loses his wife and then he decides to go after the 
criminal underworld.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 2) Dick Justice - TV Series #2 - Name's Inspiration /
-----------------------------------------------------
Another interesting thing about this TV series is its name. In Max Payne 1, 
one of the Commandos (enemies), in his talk to a comrade, reveal that he has 
named his gun "Dick Justice".
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 3) Vladimir's Vodka - TV Advertisement /
----------------------------------------
You can also see Vladimir Lem on the TV who is promoting his new & trendy 
Restaurant, Vodka (where you get to kill quite a few mobsters).
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 4) Max Heat 7 - TV Late Night Show /
------------------------------------
You will also get to see the advertisement of Max Heat 7, which you 
ultimately end up seeing in one of the latter levels.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 5) The perp's disguise didn't fool me... /
------------------------------------------
If you kill the first cleaner (that you encounter) before he reveals his real 
intent, then Max will remark," The perp's disguise didn't fool me. He was 
leading me into a trap." If you don't kill him, then you will get a 2 second 
cut-scene where the cleaner will reveal his murderous intent.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 6) Ragnarock Billboard /
------------------------
Remember Ragnarock from Max Payne 1??? You will get to see a Ragnarock 
Billboard in the room after killing the first two cleaners. The board is 
nicely resting against the wall on the far end of the room, near the left of 
the hauler.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 7) The Death of a Woman /
-------------------------
It is interesting to notice that both the Max Payne games begin with the 
death of a woman.

Max Payne - Michelle Payne.
Max Payne 2 - Annie Finn (Vladimir Lem's girlfriend).
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 8) Max, we gotta stop meeting like this... / 
--------------------------------------------
"We gotta stop meeting like this" is the first thing that Mona says to Max in 
this game. It is interesting to note that this phrase is also one of the last 
things that Mona Sax said to Max in their last meeting in the first Max Payne 
game. Just like in this game, Mona in the first game too, came out from an 
elevator and disappeared after re-entering the elevator in the last sequence.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 9) Gate-crashing Detective /
----------------------------
After killing the killers of Annie Finn and two more cleaners who come to 
check that room, you will exit and go through the door on the right. You will 
come into another room with loads of lockers and a door at the other end on 
the right, near the window. Through that door, three more cleaners come into 
the room. Charge at them and kill them. As soon as you do that, go and look 
down to the yard below through the window. You will see a police car gate-
crash the main steel gates, and a cop & a woman (Detective Winterson) come 
out of the car.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 10) Security Camera /
---------------------
After watching the gate-crash scene, retreat back to the room where Annie 
Finn was killed. You will see a small screen on the left near the window. Go 
and press 'Use' against it to see Detective Winterson & a cop, who have taken 
their position outside a steel shutter (collapsible) door.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


=============================================================================
 Chapter 2: A Criminal Mastermind
=============================================================================

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 1) Dead or Alive - Mike the Cowboy /
------------------------------------
In this level, you will meet Mike the Cowboy. Now, you can finish this level 
with him either dead or alive. However, if you can get through the level with 
Mike still alive, you will meet him again in Part 3, Chapter 2. He will be 
taunting you over the loudspeakers throughout this level, and you will get 
the oppurtunity to kill him yourself at the end of the level. However, if 
Mike does get killed in this level, a random thug of Lem's will do the 
talking in the latter level.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 2) Captain Baseball-bat Boy Drawing on the White Board /
--------------------------------------------------------
In Vladimir Lem's office, there is a Captain Baseball-bat Boy drawing on the 
white board near his desk. You will see the full implication of this in one 
of the latter levels of the game. So, was Vlad planning his Trojan-horse 
trick from the beginning???
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 3) Hey! Who taught you to shoot? /
----------------------------------
In this level, Mike the Cowboy is acting as your comrade. Now, if you shoot 
him once, them he will ask you, "Hey! Who taught you to shoot?" If you shoot 
him twice, then he will shout, "Enough, cop!" and turn against you.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 4) Skip a Part, Unlock a Locked Door /
--------------------------------------
After meeting Mike The Cowboy, you go into a room with loads of goodies and 
three enemies. Either kill Mike or tell him to hold the position. Then go 
into the room, kill the three thugs, and go to the back of the room. Now, 
near the end of the small passage, before going up the stairs, look around 
the corner to the left to find a couple of thugs talking. Make sure they 
haven't noticed you, because when they do, they will close the door. You can 
chuck a grenade at the wall near the door which will blow up the two thugs, 
or you can even chuck a Molotov at them. After they are killed, you can go 
through the door which is unlocked. No need to go up the stairs and into the 
room above.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 5) Ragnarock Souvenirs /
------------------------
Just before the end of the level, in the big room where about 10 thugs attack 
you from the above floor, there is a door on the left side. If you go into 
that room, you will find all the goodies from Ragnarock (nightclub in Max 
Payne 1) including Ragnarock's billboard, the musical instruments, book 
shelves, etc.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 6) Vladimir Lem's Diploma Certificate /
---------------------------------------
Valdimir Lem's Diploma Certificate can be seen behind Vlad's desk hanging on 
the wall. If you look carefully, then you will find out that he has received 
the diploma for helping the blind. In one of the latter levels, if you talk 
to other officers at the Police Station, then you will also find out that 
Detective Winterson's son is also blind. You will also find a similar 
certificate at Detective Winterson's desk at the Police Station. And you will 
also get to see in another level that Vladimir Lem & Detective Winterson are 
a couple. In her eyes, Vladimir Lem has always been "Good to her boy".
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 7) Huge Face Painting on the Wall /
-----------------------------------
Just before the end of the level, in the big room where about 10 thugs attack 
you from the above floor, look at the wall of the double-door that you just 
came through. A huge painting of an evil-looking face covers the entire wall. 
The double-door is where the mouth of the face should be. Apparently, this 
painting on the wall was also in the first Max Payne game, and you could see 
it on the dance floor when you visited the place. In that game, the place was 
called Ragna Rock and it was a disco-theque/night club then.

 Chapter 3: The Depths of My Brain
=============================================================================

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 1) King Midas - A Greek Character /
-----------------------------------
After you reach the hospital in this dream level and see Mona sitting on the 
bed, you will get a cut-scene. Look closely at the billboard during that cut-
scene. Where it said "Gold Touch Brandy", it will now say "Everyone I touch 
dies". You will also see Max's poster on the billboard, and it also says 
"Sadim". This is a reference to King Midas (SADIM backwards), a character in 
Greek Mythology, who is mostly recognized for his power to turn anything 
(including people) he touched into gold. He became greedy and ultimately 
ended up transforming his own daughter into gold and killing her, by 
accident.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 2) That's Odd #1 - (TV)... /
----------------------------
Walk upto the TV and press the 'Use' button against it. The TV is stuck with 
the same picture and it won't switch off. On the pressing the 'Use' key, Max 
Payne will say, "That's odd."
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 3) Max Payne's Memoriblia /
---------------------------
In the dream, you will find various things from Max Payne 1. In the first 
game, Max Payne used to wear a wedding ring throughout the game. You will 
find that ring on the small desk on the right side of the sofa, along with 
his wife's photo. When the game switches to real time (next level), the ring 
is shifted to the big table (coffee table) opposite the TV. If you search the 
house, you will also find various other items from the first game. I will 
list them here:

Item 1: The Wedding Ring - On the small table.

Item 2: Michelle Payne's Photo - On the small table.

Item 3: Max & Michelle Payne's Photos (several)- Beside the TV on the ground.

Item 4: The Hero Cops (Article featuring Max Payne & his best friend, Alex) -
        Behind the big table opposite the TV, on the ground to the left.

Item 5: Max Payne's & Alex Balder's Photo - In the other room, on the table.

Item 6: "Late Goodbye" CD - On the big table opposite the TV.

Item 2, 3, 4 & 5 were also in Max Payne and they were interactive, i.e., you 
could press 'Use' key to trigger a few words or Graphic Novels. Interesting 
thing to note is that the new Max Payne face (Timothy Gibbs) has been super-
imposed onto the old one (Sam Lake) in the photos.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 4) Mona Sax's hidden features /
-------------------------------
When Mona Sax's body comes out on a sliding bed in the Hospital Morgue, you 
can nearly see her entire left breast. It is interesting to note that you can 
play as the nude Mona model using a cheat.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


=============================================================================
 Chapter 4: No 'Us' in This
=============================================================================

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 1) Max Payne's Memoriblia /
---------------------------
All of memoriblia in the previous level, i.e., the photos, wedding ring, CD, 
etc. can also be found in this level. But, the wedding ring has now been 
moved to the big table opposite the TV.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 2) Phone to the Police /
------------------------
Many people miss this, including me in my first couple of play-through of the 
level. You can use the phone in the bedroom of Max Payne's apartment at the 
beginning of the level, to get a cut-scene of Max calling the police. And if 
you don't use the phone at the beginning, then you can again call from 
another apartment. Remember the apartment where an old man is snoring with 
the TV on??? In the first room of that apartment, there is another phone 
which you can use. You will get a cut-scene with different dialogues from the 
first call.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 3) Phone Tapping - Mona & Mona Sax /
------------------------------------
Once you reach the apartment from where you were being sniped at (spied from) 
in the beginning, you will get a cut-scene. After that, you can use the 
phone-tapping device on the table to listen to the last three phone calls 
made by Max Payne.

To Detective Winterson: First call will be to Detective Winterson (police) if 
you used the phone in the beginning to call police.

To Jim Bravura: Second call will be from Jim Bravura to Max Payne lecturing 
him for being 'late again'.

To Mona (Dangerous Liasons): And lastly, it will play Max Payne's call to 
Dangerous Liasons, where he will talk to a phone sex girl called 'Mona'. 
Interesting thing to note is that this 'Mona' & 'Mona Sax' share the same 
voice actress.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 4) Old Lady with the Shotgun & a cut-scene /
--------------------------------------------
When you come across the lady who kills a cleaner at the beginning, go listen 
to her talks. She will eventually offer you a shotgun, press 'Use' key 
against her to get it. After getting the shotgun, exit the house to get a 
cut-scene, where Max Payne tells the woman to lock the door and to not to 
open it for anybody other than the Police. Now, if you try to open the door, 
the woman will shout,"Go away! I've got a gun and I'm not afraid to use it!"
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 5) The Snoring Old Man & The TV /
---------------------------------
If you switch off the TV, then the old man will wake up and say the following 
lines:

"No, no! Put it back on, they'll hear!
 They're spying one me, they're listening, spying on all of us.
 They'll hear if the TV's not on.
 The signal, the signal fools them.
 Yes, my Lord. No, my Lady. Turn it back on."

After saying all this, the old man will again go back to his old ways of 
sleeping & snoring. The old man is mad or something???
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 6) The Sweet but Deaf Old Woman /
---------------------------------
After leaving the snoring man's house by the window, you will kill three more 
cleaners and come across yet another house. The woman here is deaf and if you 
care to listen to her then she will eventually offer you some painkillers. 
Press the 'Use' key when she does, and she will unlock the bathroom where the 
painkillers are kept, go & get them.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 7) The Deaf Old Woman & a D****/
---------------------------------
In that same bathroom, you can find a DILDO behind the washing machine with 
the painkillers on the top of it. Use the cheats to get a sniper rifle and 
zoom in on the small object behind the washing machine to read something 
written on the object. Hmm...What the hell was that old woman doing with a 
DILDO?!?!?
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 8) Dangerous Liaisons - A Title of a Film /
-------------------------------------------
In the same tape recorder egg, the phone sex line Max calls is called 
"Dangerous Liaisons", which is also the title of a 1988 film. The film 
"Dangerous Liaisons" was nominated for seven Academy Awards. The commercial 
for the phone sex line can be seen and heard on the TV throughout the game.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 9) Spy Camera - Max Payne's House under Surveillance /
------------------------------------------------------
In the same room, there is a camera which you can use to watch an amusing 
cut-scene.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 10) "Late Goodbye" by "Poets of the Fall" #1 /
---------------------------------------------
The theme song of the game, "Late Goodbye" by "Poets of the Fall" can be 
heard many times in the game. In this level, you can hear "Ed-the Janitor" 
singing it.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 11) The Neighbour of the Beast!!! /
-----------------------------------
When Max Payne asks for the code, Ed the Janitor replies, "667, the Neighbour 
of the Beast. Get it?" And Max Payne says, "Yeah, I get it."

Now, If you have played the first Max Payne, then you will know that in Part 
3, Chapter 3 of the game, Max Payne is looking for the keypad code to a door. 
On finding a computer with the code, Max Payne remarks, "665, the Neighbour 
of the Beast."
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 12) That's odd #2 - Mario Easter Egg (Floating fireballs)... /
-------------------------------------------------------------
Near the end of the level, you will come across a murdered housewife's suite. 
Exit the house through the window, and out onto the ledge for the last time 
in this level. Go right, and immediately after the first pipe, you will find 
a black "M" spraypainted on the wall. Press the USE button three times 
against it, which will cause something weird to happen. Continue on in your 
path and you will come across several floating fireballs acting as a hurdle 
on the ledges. The fireballs will go up & down on the wall. On seeing them, 
Max will say,"That's odd." It seems to be a reference to the famous Mario 
games. The fireballs will kill you if you touch them.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


=============================================================================
 Chapter 5: A Sign of Her Passage
=============================================================================

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 1) Painkillers anyone??? /
--------------------------
After you have turned off the gas valve and entered the burned (blackened) 
out room, in stead of going out of the balcony, go into the room on the right 
side (half-burning). And then, jump over the shelves and go into the bathroom 
to find a couple of painkillers. I really think that many people don't know 
about this.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 2) Just round the Pipe - Loads of Goodies (Ammo, etc.) /
--------------------------------------------------------
After exiting the burned (blackened) out room through the balcony, and 
killing a few enemies, proceed in your path. When you reach the top (after 
killing another couple of enemies), there is a pipe that is blocking the 
right side ledge. From here, you're supposed to jump onto the scaffolding on 
the left. But, if you try, you can jump round the pipe onto the right side. 
After jumping, the ledge is broken. Jump over it to find a few sniper rifle 
ammo. After that, there is a big gap between this & the next part. You will 
need to shootdodge to get there. When you do, forward and go right to find 
loads of goodies, such as Molotovs, Desert Eagle Ammo, Sniper Rifle Ammo, 
Painkillers, Ingram ammo, etc.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 3) A Kid with a Head Full of Videogames!!! /
--------------------------------------------
In the Ending Graphic Novel of the level, Jim Bravura says the following to 
Max Payne:

"What next? A kid with a bag full of guns and a head full of videogames turns
 the house into a shooting gallery. Breaks my heart."

The developers are taking a pot-shot at the general non-gaming public & 
politicians who have a tendency to attribute the crimes of teenagers to 
violent video games.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 4) To kill or Not to kill - The Old & The Innocent People /
-----------------------------------------------------------
In the Ending Graphic Novel of the level, Jim Bravura says the following to 
Max Payne:

"What next? A kid with a bag full of guns and a head full of videogames turns
 the house into a shooting gallery. Breaks my heart."

But, if you killed the Old & the Innocent People in the previous two 
Chapters, then Jim Bravura will add a couple of lines in the same Graphic 
Novel:

"What next? A kid with a bag full of guns and a head full of videogames turns
 the house into a shooting gallery. Breaks my heart.
 Innocent People got killed. You didn't do your job, Payne.
 To protect and serve isn't just bullshit hype."
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


=============================================================================
 Chapter 6: A Linear Sequence of Scares
=============================================================================

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 1) Address Unknown Theme /
--------------------------
The funhouse is based on the TV show Address Unknown, which you get to see on 
the TV on various ocassions throughout the game.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 2) Photo on the Billboard /
---------------------------
In the beginning cut-scene of the level, notice the picture on the entrance 
door billboard. You will get to see the face of the original Max Payne from 
the first game, which is also the face of the game's writer, Sam Lake.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 3) The Flesh of Fallen Angels #1 /
----------------------------------
As soon as you start, you will go through a revolving tunnel out into a yard 
with cardboard cars & stuff. On the right side in the middle, you will see 
the words "The Flesh of Fallen Angels" written on the wall. Those of you who 
have played the first Max Payne must be familiar with it. It is a reference 
to one of the dreams in the first game in which Max Payne describes his 
wife's body as "The Flesh of Fallen Angels". This phrase is also found in 
various other levels.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 4) She had Dyed her Hair Red /
------------------------------
After you take the cage-elevator, a cut-scene starts in which a huge needle-
like thing swings towards you. If you go and look at the wall behind that big 
needle-like thingy, you will come across the phrase "She had Dyed her Hair 
Red". It has the same implications as the above one.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 5) Photo of the Sax Sisters /
-----------------------------
You can find a photo of the twin sisters, Mona & Lisa (Punchinello), on the 
small table opposite the TV at Mona's place. It is on the right side of the 
Dick Justice poster.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 6) Kung Fu Poster /
-------------------
Near the end of the level, when you finally reach Mona Sax's room (hideout), 
look at poster on the wall of the gym-area. The name of the movie is "The 
Dragon" starring Kenneth Yeung. Those who have played the first Max Payne may 
know him as the creator of the famous "Kung Fu" mod for Max Payne 1. The 
poster also shows a person performing one of famous moves of the mod and a 
model from the game mod. The developers were so impressed with Kenneth 
Yeung's work that they paid a tribute to him through this poster.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 7) "Late Goodbye" by "Poets of the Fall" #2 /
---------------------------------------------
The theme song of the game, "Late Goodbye" by "Poets of the Fall" can be 
heard many times in the game. In this level, you can wait outside the 
bathroom to hear Mona Sax humming to the song's tune.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


=============================================================================
 Chapter 7: The Million Dollar Question
=============================================================================

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 1) In memoriam (eerie) /
------------------------
After entering the room with a cleaner talking to another outside a window, 
kill both of them. Jump out of the window and into the lift outside and press 
the button to make your way down the scaffoldings. Make your way further down 
the scaffoldings near another window below where you've just seen a man taken 
out (he falls out and down). Blast the cleaner inside with a shotgun 
(preferably! bang!) and instead of going inside, move your way further to the 
left side of the building (walk on the ledge). There you'll see an open 
window with some sort of faint light emanating from the inside. See for 
yourself what's inside the room!!! Eerie!!!

Contributed by: abdoncolina (taken from Gamefaqs' Cheat Codes & Secrets 
Section)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 1) A Secret GTA 2D Scene /
--------------------------
This can be found in Part 1 Chapter 7, "The Million Dollar Question" level. 
You need to do this strictly after killing all of the enemies in this level, 
and you should not use the television before all of them are dead, or else 
the scene won't appear. After killing Kaufman and the rest of the cleaners, 
retrace your steps back to the previous apartment and use the wide-screen 
television on the wall. As soon as you do it, a cut-scene will begin. It is 
in 2D and pays a tribute to the original Grand Theft Auto games. Kaufman is 
also the name of the taxi cab company that you can purchase in Grand Theft 
Auto: Vice City, named Kaufman Cabs.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 3) Hooker's voice while having Sex /
------------------------------------
After the beginning cut-scene ends, exit the lift and go left. When you come 
across the first passage on the left leading to a door, take it. Go and kiss 
the door to hear a woman moaning & groaning * egging her partner on (she is 
having ***). This same sound track is later used in Part 3 Chapter 3 in the 
TV Late Night Movie Max Heat 7.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 4) Shoot the Security Camera /
------------------------------
If you shoot at the security cameras located throughout the building in the 
corridors, Mona will randomly remark any of the following sentences:

"Max! stop it!"

"Max, I can't help you if I can't see what's going on."

"Max! those cameras are my eyes, we need them to make this work."
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 5) Piano & the Max Payne Theme #1 /
-----------------------------------
Just like in Max Payne 1, you can have Max Payne play the theme of the game 
on the various instruments, like pianos, etc. In this level, you can play the 
Piano that the two cleaners are playing. But you must make sure that the lid 
doesn't fall off or else Max Payne won't be able to play it. The first time 
you use it, he will play the theme at normal speed; the second time you try 
the same, he will play it at a faster speed.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 6) "Late Goodbye" by "Poets of the Fall" #3 /
---------------------------------------------
The theme song of the game, "Late Goodbye" by "Poets of the Fall" can be 
heard many times in the game. In this level, you can hear the cleaners 
playing the song's tune on the piano. After the cleaner is done with playing 
the piano, he starts to whistle the song's tune.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


=============================================================================
 Part II: A Binary Choice
=============================================================================


=============================================================================
 Prologue
=============================================================================

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 1) Detective Winterson's secret & Diploma /
-------------------------------------------
After you get to your desk and the cut-scene, go & talk to the officer to 
find out that she has a blind kid. You can also find a "The Brooklyn School 
for the Blind" Certificate near her desk, on the sticky board. If you 
remember correctly, Vladimir Lem also had a similar certificate in his room. 
Umm...is something brewing between them???
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 2) How ****ed up is that??? & Crime of the Century /
----------------------------------------------------
At the beginning, you can listen to a really hilarious interrogation taking 
place at a desk near Jim Bravura's cabin. The officer finally dubs it as 
"Crime of the Century".

Again, when you get to the prisoner cells, you can hear another hilarious 
conversation between two cell-mates. They are located in the interior cells, 
on the other side of the partition (second door). I dub it as "How ****ed up 
is that???" story. Why??? You will know why when you hear it.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 3) Miller & Broussard - Duke Nukem Forever /
--------------------------------------------
If you go down to garage of the station, then you will find two police 
officers "Miller" and "Broussard" arguing over an investigation. Miller 
emphasizes the importance of "positioning", while Broussard mutters "It'll be 
done When It's Done". This is widely regarded as a reference to 3D Realms' 
vice President Scott Miller and president George Broussard, who is the 
project lead of the long-delayed game Duke Nukem Forever. This game has been 
stuck in limbo for a long time and website states the release date as "To be 
released When It's Done." Officer Miller also lectures Officer Broussard for 
not getting his own name right, which is a reference to George Broussard 
spelling his name "Broussad" in Pharaoh's Tomb.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 4) When it's done... /
----------------------
Similarly in the lobby, if you attempt to enter the already-occupied toilet 
booth will prompt the officer occupying it to say the following:
"For crying out loud! Is it too much to ask for some privacy?
 I'll be out when it's done."
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 5) Has someone messed up the Air Conditioning again? /
------------------------------------------------------
You can go into the restroom in the upper level where you will find two 
officers watching TV. There is an air-conditioning device behind the sofa 
which you can use. When you do, it messes up the air conditioning of the 
entire station and the two officers will remark something rudely. After that, 
go down to the lobby and talk to the receptionist and she will hotly complain 
about the hot temperature and ask if someone has again messed up the air-
conditioning.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 6) Video Game Violence - Video Games Kill People /
--------------------------------------------------
When you go down to the lobby, you will hear a funny conversation between a 
hot woman and the receptionist. The hot woman has come to report charges 
against her ex-boyfriend, whom she suspects of plotting to kill her. She says 
that he is video game fanatic who has become a really good shooter, thanks to 
the violent videogames!!! After she goes away, go and talk to the 
receptionist and she will say the following if you haven't messed up the air-
conditioning:

"Did you hear that? Guns don't kill people, video games kill people.
 Jesus. Welcome to New York City."

The developers are taking yet another pot-shot at the general non-gaming 
public & politicians who have a tendency to attribute the crimes of teenagers 
to violent video games.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 7) Images of the Dead Max Payne /
---------------------------------
You can go down to the lobby area of the Police Station and enter the 
"Briefing" room. In here, you can use the projector to view different images 
on the board. The interesting thing about these images is that they are a 
part of a dream sequence later in the game, Part 3 Chapter 6. One of the 
images show Max Payne's corpse.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 8) "Defender" song - Manovar /
------------------------------
You can go into the restroom in the upper level where you will find two 
officers watching another episode of the Lords & Ladies on the TV. Near the 
end of the show, the mother says "Ride like the wind, fight proud my son". 
This is supposedly a reference to the "Defender" song from "Manowar". This is 
not confirmed though.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


=============================================================================
 Chapter 1: The Things That I Want
=============================================================================

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 1) Mona Sax's Sex Appeal /
--------------------------
In the beginning Graphic Novel of this level, you can see nearly the entire 
of Mona Sax's left breast and nipple.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 2) Loads of Ammo /
------------------
You can find 120 rounds of Kalashnikov ammo at the start of the level. After 
killing the two cleaners beyond the fence, go near the wooden staircase near 
the middle of the passage. Two more cleaners will come down from the 
staircase; kill them but don't go up the staircase. Instead, go beyond the 
staircase to the other end of the passage; you will come across a locked 
doorway. There is a wooden box on the side of that doorway booth. Use it to 
jump over to the other side of the doorway booth to find loads of Kalashnikov 
ammo behind two more boxes. Enjoy!!!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


=============================================================================
 Chapter 2: In the Middle of Something
=============================================================================

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 1) A few "Out of the Way" enemies /
-----------------------------------
After killing everyone in the parking yard and re-entering the building 
through another door, take the right door and go to the beginning place 
(underground garage) to encounter three more enemies. They will be 
talking among themselves, one of them will say, "I bet the bastard that 
did it is still in the building." Another one of them will say, "Oh, I 
hope he is."
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 2) Falling from Great Height!!! #1 /
------------------------------------
Halfway through the level, you will come across a long corridor (left side) 
where a thug will be camping at the far end. Just behind him is a big hole on 
the ground. Use the tables to get near him. When you get real close to him, 
come out of cover and shootdodge towards him (but not at him, aim for his 
left side) and be sure to kill him. Doing so will trigger a cool death-
sequence. Now, you must make sure that you fell through the hole while the 
cut-scene (death-sequence). You will find yourself two floors down, still 
alive & kicking when you regain control. This may take a couple of tries.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


=============================================================================
 Chapter 3: Blowing Up
=============================================================================

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 1) Burning Enemy!!! /
---------------------
Halfway through the level, you will go into a room with enemies. After 
killing them all, you will drop down to the room (floor) below through a big 
hole in the ground, again kill a few enemies and again drop down to the room 
(floor) below through another hole in the ground. Now, you will exit this 
room & go right. But, take the left turn instead to see a cleaner running 
towards you, trying to escape from fire. Poor (he deserved it P;) soul 
doesn't make it and gets caught in the fire and dies before reaching you.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


=============================================================================
 Chapter 4: Routing Her Synapses
=============================================================================

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 1) "Late Goodbye" by "Poets of the Fall" #4 /
---------------------------------------------
The theme song of the game, "Late Goodbye" by "Poets of the Fall" can be 
heard many times in the game. In this level, if you go towards the staircase 
and stand at the bottom, then you can hear the black-suit at the top of the 
stair-case whistle to the song's tune. But, it doesn't always happen for me, 
so I can't guarantee it.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


=============================================================================
 Chapter 5: Out of the Window
=============================================================================

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 1) Explosive barrel /
---------------------
After exiting the starting room, you are supposed to head right because the 
door at the end on the left side is locked. But near that locked door is an 
explosive barrel. If you don't shoot it at the beginning, then it will help 
later in the level by automatically killing a couple of enemies for you.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 2) Damn it, Mona! Stop doing the cleaners' job for them! /
----------------------------------------------------------
While playing as Mona, you get quite a few opportunities to shoot Max Payne. 
When you do, Max Payne will yell any of the following phrases:

"Mona! watch your fire."

"Mona! You're not helping."

"Damn it, Mona! Stop doing their job for them!"

"Mona, the guy in the leather jacket in your scope right now,
 he's the only one you're not supposed to shoot."
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


=============================================================================
 Chapter 6: The Genius of the Hole
=============================================================================

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 1) Falling from Great Height!!! #2 /
------------------------------------
Halfway through the level, after you cross the bridge, you will see 4 thugs. 
Show yourself to them and two of them will come for you, kill them. The other 
two will go and camp on top of the staircase platform. Kill one of them and 
charge towards the other one. When you get real close to him, shootdodge 
towards the gap in the middle of the staircase and be sure to kill him. Doing 
so will trigger a cool death-sequence. Now, you must make sure that you fell 
through the hole while the cut-scene (death-sequence). You will find yourself 
at the bottom of the staircase, still alive & kicking when you regain 
control. This may take a couple of tries. You skipped nearly a dozen of 
enemies!!!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


=============================================================================
 Part III: Waking Up from the American Dream
=============================================================================


=============================================================================
 Prologue
=============================================================================

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 1) Quadraple the Payne /
------------------------
In this dream sequence, Max Payne walks through a passage with police cells 
on either side where other crazy Max Payne's are held up. They are babbling 
to themselves with signboards hanging inside the cells describing their type 
of madness. Two of them are particularly worth noting:

"Insane" - He says "I killed them, my wife, my baby, I shot them,
                    I buried them under the rosebush in the backyard."

If you remember the conversation dubbed as "Crime of the Century", then you 
will get the source of this sentence. Also, it refers to Max Payne's guilty 
conscience. Deep inside his mind, he blames himself for his in-ability to 
save his wife & baby-daughter.

"Schizophrenic" - He says "I've been switched, I didn't used to look like 
this." This is simply a reference to the fact that two different models were 
used for the two Max Payne games.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 2) Naked Mona!!! /
------------------
This is very obvious but...after meeting all the Payne's you will see Mona 
Sax taking a shower. If you shootdodge forward in time (before you're 
transported), you can see the entire of Mona Sax's naked body from behind.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 3) The Cost of Passion!!! /
---------------------------
After you're are transported to Police Station's Lock-up Cell, you will enter 
a room with a TV, then you will go up a couple of staircases and get a cut-
scene of Jim Bravura who is lying on the floor. He will tell you to "stay 
true to the badge" and to "solve the case". Now, go through the next passage 
and check the table near the staircase to find a recording device. If you 
press the 'Use' key then you will hear Max Payne's voice who will say the 
following:

"The cleaners, Annie Finn, Senator Gate, Mr. Corcoran,
 they were just peripheral noise surrounding the case.
 Winterson's murder was what it was all about,
 The cost of passion, my courtship of Mona Sax.
 My case, my crime. It wasn't about finding the killer. I was it.
 It was about looking for a deserving patsy to pin the blame on."
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 4) Wake up! You Are in a Computer Game!!! #1 /
----------------------------------------------
Near the end of this dream sequence, you will find yourself at Police Station 
along with Detective Winterson & Mona Sax. You need to go beyond them and 
into Max Payne's cubicle. Check the white board there to find the following 
message, "WAKE UP!!! YOU ARE IN A COMPUTER GAME!!!". Those of you who have 
played the first Max Payne game will know about this, as Max Payne 
experienced a similar thing in one of his dreams in that game too, in Part 3, 
Prologue. But, in that game, you got a graphic novel for it.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


=============================================================================
 Chapter 1: Too Stubborn to Die
=============================================================================

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 1) Detective Winterson's Age /
------------------------------
In the morgue of the hospital, closer inspection on the blackboard near 
Winterson's body would reveal that her age is 42. See the 4th line of left 
side marked "Age".
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 2) Jim Bravura's Operation /
----------------------------
After you get a weapon for the first time in the level, and exiting that room 
after killing the thugs, you will enter a room on the right side of the 
corridor which a has few control panels on the left and opposite of the door 
and loads of cabinets on the right. Go towards the control panel on the 
opposite side of the door you used to enter. You will notice a couple of 
painkillers on the table, and also a small screen on the extreme right-side 
of the panel. Press the 'Use' key against it twice to see Jim Bravura on the 
operation table. On seeing Jim Bravura's operation in progress, Max Payne 
will say the following:

"Bravura was too stubborn to die.
 I had to buy him time, draw the commandos after me,
 get out of the hospital."

=============================================================================
 Chapter 2: On a Crash Course
=============================================================================

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 1) Dead or Alive - Mike the Cowboy /
------------------------------------
If Mike the Cowboy survived in Part 1 Chapter 2, then he will taunt you over 
the microphone throughout this level. If he didn't, then a random thug will 
take his place and do the same.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 2) Umm...Who is that??? /
-----------------------
(Not sure about this) One more interesting thing to note is that they assume 
it's Mona Sax who is tearing down the place and coming after their boss, 
Vladimir Lem. They also say that it was she who attacked the boss earlier and 
wounded him. Remember Vladimir Lem's left hand in Part 1 Chapter 2??? It was 
injured!!!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 3) Mona Sax shot him!!! /
-------------------------
In this level, one of the thugs at the beginning says, "Is the killer chick 
with him? The one that shot boss in the arm?" Now, this could very well be a 
reference to how Vladimir Lem's left hand got injured earlier. In Part 1 
Chapter 2, on being questioned by Max Payne about his injured hand, Vladimir 
Lem says, "A hot date yesterday". We also see a TV show in the 3rd dream 
level featuring Vladimir Lem and Mona Sax. In that show, Mona Sax shoots at 
Vladimir Lem's left hand.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


=============================================================================
 Chapter 3: A Mob-War
=============================================================================

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 1) Dick Justice - TV Series #3 - Max Payne's Face #1 /
------------------------------------------------------
This series also take a dig at one of the famous criticisms of Max Payne 1, 
the look of Max Payne's face in the first game. If you watch the TV in an old 
bum's house, Dick Justice says "I had a permanent, constipated grimace on my 
face."
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 2) Max Heat 7 - TV Series /
---------------------------
Remember, I told about the Max Heat 7 TV Movie, the advertisement for which 
you have been seeing throughout the game so far. You can watch it in this 
level!!! After using the metal platform to crossover from one building to 
another while a few enemies fight among themselves on the yard below, you can 
go to the top floor to find a couple of thugs watching the TV, Max Heat 7!!! 
Kill them and check out the TV, and guys, please, it's only a videogame, stay 
away from the ******* screen!!!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 3) See, I couldn't break it even if I tried, see? /
---------------------------------------------------
In that same building, when you go two floors down and into a house to 
progress further into the game, you will enter a room with two thugs talking 
to each other. One of them is standing on a metal/wooden platform outside the 
window, the other one is inside. You can hear them by hiding behind the 
shelf. You will learn that the outside one is acting brave while the one 
inside is cautioning him against acting like the way he is!!!

Inside  : "Stop being a jackass! You gonna break your neck."
Outside : "I can handle myself. Come on, come out here."
Inside  : "Shit no! I'm afraid of heights. Get your ass back in here!
           Oh shit, I'm gonna fuckin puke."

After the thug on the outside falls down, the inside one says:

"Shit! Damn it. You okay down there? You okay? Serves you right!"
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 4) Killing the Comrades!!! /
----------------------------
If you kill Vinnie Gognitti's men, who have mistaken you as one of them, 
before they open the locked door, then another of Vinnie Gognitti's men will 
come through that door into the building and try to kill you. Thus, enabling 
you to progress further into the level without having to reload a previous 
saved game!!!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 5) Loads of Striker Ammo (Out of the Way) /
-------------------------------------------
Before going through the last door of the level, you will find this on the 
big road where about ten enemies attack you from both the gangs. Keep going 
to the end of the road ignoring the green gate. At the very end, both the 
roads are blocked by burning fence. Turn left and look at the burning fence 
blocking the left side road. There are two explosive barrels here, BELOW the 
DELI shop signboard. Shoot it. Boom!!! The shops doors are open now. Go 
inside, collect all the ammo.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


=============================================================================
 Chapter 4: Dearest of All My Friends
=============================================================================

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 1) Vinnie Gognitti's Phone & the Captain Baseball-bat Boy's Theme Song /
------------------------------------------------------------------------
If you check the telephone on the table in Vinnie Gognitti's room, then you 
will get hear the Captain Baseball-bat Boy's Theme Song. Vinnie Gognitti's a 
really big fan of the Violent Cartoon Series.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 2) Voice Mail of Vinnie Gognitti /
----------------------------------
If you check the telephone on the table in Vinnie Gognitti's room, then you 
will hear the last three recorded messages. They are from:

Godfather: This guy's identity isn't revealed in the game, but he seems like
           big Boss who has helped Vinnie Gognitti loads of times. But now,
           he refuses to help Vinnie Gognitti in his war against the Russian,
           Vladimir Lem.

Girlfriend: She seems angry and threatens Vinnie Gognitti.

Mona Sax: She tells him that Vladimir Lem is coming to get him. She also
          clarifies that she told him because she wanted to make it more
          difficult for Vladimir Lem.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 3) Shoot the Captain!!! /
-------------------------
As soon as you enter Vinnie Gognitti's house, shoot the Captain Baseball-bat 
Boy Goodies (like the photo-frames on the wall). Doing so will make Vinnie 
Gognitti say,

"No, no, no! Payne! What are you doing? What are you doing?
 Those are priceless collector's items! Payne! What are you doing?
 Aww, shit, no-"
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 4) Deliverator!!! /
-------------------
The Deliverator, the van in which Max and Vinnie escape in, is the name of a 
car from Remedy game "Death Rally".
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


=============================================================================
 Chapter 5: A Losing Game
=============================================================================

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 None So Far /
-------------


=============================================================================
 Chapter 6: There Are No Happy Endings
=============================================================================

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 1) Wake up! You Are in a Computer Game!!! #2 /
----------------------------------------------
When you are transported to the Police Station's Partition Cubicles, you will 
see Jim Bravura on an Operation Bed!!! From here, go to Max Payne's desk and 
check the white board in the same place as before to again find the following 
message, "WAKE UP!!! YOU ARE IN A COMPUTER GAME!!!". Those of you who have 
played the first Max Payne game will know about this, as Max Payne 
experienced a similar thing in one of his dreams in that game too, in Part 3, 
Prologue. But, in that game, you got a graphic novel for it.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 2) "Late Goodbye" by "Poets of the Fall" #5 /
---------------------------------------------
The theme song of the game, "Late Goodbye" by "Poets of the Fall" can be 
heard many times in the game. In this level, you can hear a Cleaner singing 
it while scrubbing the spraypaint off the wall.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 3) Sam Lake - The Writer /
--------------------------
If you watch the TV next to the Captain Baseball-bat Boy toy, then you will 
see Vladimir Lem & Vinnie Gognitti in an interesting Quiz Show. The 2nd Q 
that Vladimir Lem asks Vinnie Gognitti is "Who is the original creator of 
Maxwell's Demon???" Vinnie Gognitti answers "The show's writer Sammy Waters." 
This very well could be a reference & tribute to the game's writer and the 
model for the first Max Payne, Sam Lake.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 4) Captain Baseball-Bat Boy's Head /
------------------------------------
If you watch the entire show on the TV next to the Captain Baseball-Bat Boy 
toy, then you will notice an interesting thing. Just as Vladimir Lem presses 
the bomb remote button in the TV show, the toy's head gets blown away!!!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 5) V for Vlad /
---------------
When you come across the second TV of the level, you will find the phrase "V 
for Vlad" written on the wall behind the TV. This signifies that Max Payne 
has found out the truth and Vladimir Lem is bad. In the first game, in Part 
3, Chapter 3, Max Payne sees the Project Valhalla sign and the truth hits him 
like wind straight in the face, "V for Valkyr, V for Valhalla."
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 6) Vladimir Lem & Mona Sax - In a Relationship??? /
---------------------------------------------------
If you watch the 2nd TV near the "V for Vlad" sign, then you will see a 
conversation between Vladimir Lem & Mona Sax at the end of which Mona Sax 
shoots at Vladimir Lem's left hand. This could very well be a reference to 
how Vladimir Lem's left hand got injured earlier. In Part 1 Chapter 2, on 
being questioned by Max Payne about his injured hand, Vladimir Lem says, "A 
hot date yesterday". Also, in Part 3 Chapter 2, one of Vladimir Lem's thugs 
says, "Is the killer chick with him? The one that shot boss in the arm?" 
Thus, giving this notion more support.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


=============================================================================
 Chapter 7: Love Hurts
=============================================================================

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 1) Stuck!!! /
-------------
After you enter the first room (where the ceiling falls down) you enter the 
mansion the door locks up behind you. But, if you time it right, then you can 
shootdodge back out into the yard while the doors are closing. However, once 
you're out, you will remain out. There is no way that you can gain entry into 
the Manor again, and you won't be able to finish the level. You will have to 
reload!!!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 2) Piano & the Max Payne Theme #2 /
-----------------------------------
Just like in Max Payne 1, you can have Max Payne play the theme of the game 
on the various instruments, like pianos, etc. In this level too, you can play 
the Piano that is in the big room (second room of the level) after the 
falling-ceiling-room. But you must make sure that the lid doesn't fall off or 
else Max Payne won't be able to play it. The first time you use it, he will 
play the theme at normal speed; the second time you try the same, he will 
play it at a faster speed.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 3) Control Panel /
------------------
Halfway through, after going up a set of stairs, you will enter a room with a 
big control panel with a big blue/purple screen with floor-plans-diagrams on 
it. If you go to the left side of the screen and use the small panel (with a 
small screen) at the bottom corner, you will see interesting cut-scenes:

Of Vladimir Lem & Clay (a random mobster);
Of Alfred Woden;
Of Mona Sax.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 4) Dick Justice - TV Series #4 - Max Payne's Face #2 /
------------------------------------------------------
If you watch the TV in the room after the room with a Control Panel 
(with a big blue/purple screen), Dick Justice says "The poet Pool, in 
his poem "Somebody's been wearing my face again" wrote:

"In this hall of mirrors/Built by liars,
 I am a pale reflection of myself."

This is yet another reference to the fact that two different models were used 
for the two Max Payne games.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 5) Two Secret Enemies - Out of the Way!!! /
-------------------------------------------
Near the end of the level, you will be moving in the second level of the 
manor. You will come to a room where there will be a big chunk of floor 
missing. When you look down, you will notice that this is the same place 
where you dodged the falling ceiling at the beginning. You can make the jump 
to the floor below without getting hurt, do it and enter the next room with 
the piano. Now, the door on the left (no need to take the right door) will 
open too and two more black-suits will attack you. Kill them and go through 
that door to find yourself back in the yard you just crossed before dropping 
down!!!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


=============================================================================
 Chapter 8: That Old Familiar Feeling
=============================================================================

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 1) Jim Bravura Survives!!! /
----------------------------
Near the end of the level, you will get to enter Alfred Woden's office. In 
that office, there is a TV. If you use that TV, you will see a news report in 
which you will hear a surprising bit of information. Contrary to Max Payne's 
earlier dream and contrary to popular beliefs (it is believed by many Max 
Payne fans that Jim Bravura is dead), Jim Bravura survives the assault in the 
hospital and is in stable condition!!! Thus, Max Payne and Jim Bravura are 
the only main characters still alive at the end of the game in normal 
difficulty. There is another surprise for you if you care to beat the game on 
"Dead On Arrival" mode.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 2) Voice Mail of Alfred Woden /
-------------------------------
If you check the telephone on the table in that same room, then you will hear 
the last three recorded messages. They are from:

Max Payne: Remember the call that he made from the police station.

Mona Sax: Her message reveals that she is working with Alfred Woden. She also
          confesses to him that she is in love with Max Payne.

Vladimir Lem: He warns Alfred Woden and says that he is coming to kill him.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 3) A Painting of a Couple Kissing each other /
----------------------------------------------
Again, in that same room, if you look at the ceiling, then you will see a 
painting of a man & a woman kissing each other. They are naked, but there 
privates are nicely hidden, damn bed sheets!!! But it sure can give you an 
idea. Now quit looking at it, P;) Computer pimp hard at work!!!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 4) Love Conquers All!!! /
-------------------------
In the end cut-scene of Part 3 Chapter 7, when Max Payne & Mona Sax are about 
to enter the Panic Room where Alfred Woden is hiding, we get to see a crypt 
with the Latin inscription "Omnia Vincit Amor" = "Love conquers all", and a 
statue of lovers hugging each other. By now, everybody knows that Max Payne 
is in love with Mona Sax, but in the following cut-scenes, Mona Sax dies 
(barring the "Dead On Arrival" mode ending). But still, Max Payne conquers 
his Survivor's Guilt because of his love. Thus, proving the Latin philosophy 
to be true.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 5) Loads of Ammo!!! /
---------------------
In your last fight against the man behind it all, Vladimir Lem, you can get 
loads of ammo if you run out of it. Just open the gate that you used to come 
up here, and move an inch towards the inside. Don't go right in or else you 
will be up in flames. And be quick about it because Vladimir Lem won't stop 
with his Dynamite-Bombing thingy.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


=============================================================================
 Alternate Ending
=============================================================================

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 1) She Survives too!!! /
------------------------
Like I said earlier, there is another big surprise waiting for you to be 
discovered if you care to beat the game on "Dead On Arrival" mode. By beating 
the game on the highest difficulty mode, you will get a different ending, in 
which Mona Sax survives!!! There's not much different except this. You won't 
get any different cut-scene or level. They have just re-arranged the last 
graphic novel of the game.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 1) John Milton's Paradise Lost & Fate /
---------------------------------------
Max Payne 1: It has references to Norse Mythology.

Max Payne 2: It has references to John Milton's Paradise Lost & Fate. Vlad 
rebels against the Inner Circle and his one-time mentor, Alfred Woden, and 
forms a renegade faction.He uses Alfred Woden's own men in his war against 
them. Similarly, in Paradise Lost, Satan rebels against God taking a third of 
Heaven's angel population with him. 

Vlad even quotes Satan, "It's better to reign in Hell than serve in 
Heaven."Max and Mona represent Adam and Eve. In Alfred's manor, a large mural 
of Adam, Eve, the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, and the serpent is 
painted on a wall.Also, if you wait to shoot the bolts holding up the 
observation deck in the final battle with Vlad, he mentions, "Did you know 
that the old man used to come up here all the time when he was still able to 
make the climb? To oversee his dominion, play god."This seems one of the few 
references which could be linked to norse mythology, as Woden sat in his high 
seat to, "Oversee his dominion," Just as Odin sat on his high seat in Asgard 
and could oversee Migard.

 2) Beginning & Ending - A Co-incidence??? /
-------------------------------------------
Both games begin and end with the death of a woman:

Max Payne 1: Michelle Payne & Nicole Horne
Max Payne 2: Annie Finn & Mona Sax (barring the "Dead On Arrival" mode).

The series, thus, represents a sort of symmetry with ancient epics such as 
the Aeneid or the Illiad.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 3) Number of Enemies Killed /
-----------------------------
Max Payne has killed more than a thousand peeps in the two games combined.
Here are the numbers and I believe them to be correct:

Max Payne 1: 660 (including helicopter pilot & Nicole Horne)
Max Payne 2: 620 (not including the 3 people killed in the dream-level);
                 (and 8 more if you kill the friendly people).

These calculations include all persons that you can kill without have having 
to fail a level,i.e.,it includes all the 7 friendly characters whom you could 
kill in Part 1, Chapter 4 & 5 (old people and the hot woman). It also 
includes the people who were killed (whether necessary or unnecessary for 
completing a level) in the dream levels. And it also includes all the enemies 
who were not necessary for you to kill but you could kill,i.e., whom your 
comrades could kill for you, in co-op like levels.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 4) Duje Nukem Forever - When It's Done!!! /
-------------------------------------------
Ironically, this game has a joke on the Duke Nukem Forever. And now, the 
sequel to this game itself is stuck in limbo as of writing this.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 5) It's Different - The Ending /
--------------------------------
Both the games give you something different if you beat the game on the 
highest difficulty setting - on 'Dead On Arrival' mode.

Max Payne 1: There is no secret ending as such. You just get an un-game
             related level which is unlocked. There are about 20 enemies in
             here and you are in constant bullet time and it's hard to kill
             them. Once you kill them all, you can go to the back room where
             you will find pictures of the developing team.

Max Payne 2: This game has a slightly different ending which you can access
             by beating the game on the highest difficulty setting, "Dead On
             Arrival" mode. They have simply changed and rearranged the last
             graphic novel of the game to get a different ending. In the last
             graphic novel of the game, they have changed the sentence
             structure, and added a couple of new dialogues, which in turn,
             gives us a new ending to the game. In this new ending, Mona Sax 
             survives too!!!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 6) The Theme (Instrumental) of Max Payne Games /
------------------------------------------------
Both the games have the same intrumental theme music, but different musical 
instruments have been used to create them.

Max Payne  : Piano
Mx Payne 2 : Cello

Both are very good, but in my opinion, 1st one created a better atmosphere.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

=============================================================================
 Group 1: Dick Justice - TV Series
=============================================================================

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 1) Parody of Max Payne 1 /
--------------------------
 Part 1 Chapter 1 /
------------------
If you watch the first TV in this level, then you will come across Dick 
Justice. The interesting thing about it is that you will get to see a parody 
of Max Payne 1. Dick Justice is, simply put, a parody made on the life of Max 
Payne. In your first encounter with Dick Justice in this level, you will 
witness the proceedings of the first level of Max Payne 1, where Dick 
Justice, like Max Payne, loses his wife and then he decides to go after the 
criminal underworld.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 2) Name's Inspiration /
-----------------------
 Part 1 Chapter 1 /
------------------
Another interesting thing about this TV series is its name. In Max Payne 1, 
one of the Commandos (enemies), in his talk to a comrade, reveal that he has 
named his gun "Dick Justice".
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 3) Max Payne's Face #1 /
------------------------
 Part 3 Chapter 3 /
------------------
This series also take a dig at one of the famous criticisms of Max Payne 1, 
the look of Max Payne's face in the first game. If you watch the TV in an old 
bum's house, Dick Justice says "I had a permanent, constipated grimace on my 
face."
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 4) Max Payne's Face #2 /
------------------------
 Part 3 Chapter 7 /
------------------
If you watch the TV in the room after the room with a Control Panel 
(with a big blue/purple screen), Dick Justice says "The poet Pool, in 
his poem "Somebody's been wearing my face again" wrote:

"In this hall of mirrors/Built by liars,
 I am a pale reflection of myself."

This is yet another reference to the fact that two different models were used 
for the two Max Payne games.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


=============================================================================
 Group 2: That's Odd
=============================================================================

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 1) (TV)... /
--------------------
 Part 1 Chapter 3 /
------------------
Walk upto the TV and press the 'Use' button against it. The TV is stuck with 
the same picture and it won't switch off. On the pressing the 'Use' key, Max 
Payne will say, "That's odd."
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 2) Mario Easter Egg (Floating fireballs)... /
---------------------------------------------
 Part 1 Chapter 4 /
------------------
Near the end of the level, you will come across a murdered housewife's suite. 
Exit the house through the window, and out onto the ledge for the last time 
in this level. Go right, and immediately after the first pipe, you will find 
a black "M" spraypainted on the wall. Press the USE button three times 
against it, which will cause something weird to happen. Continue on in your 
path and you will come across several floating fireballs acting as a hurdle 
on the ledges. The fireballs will go up & down on the wall. On seeing them, 
Max will say,"That's odd." It seems to be a reference to the famous Mario 
games. The fireballs will kill you if you touch them.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


=============================================================================
 Group 3: "Late Goodbye" by "Poets of the Fall"
=============================================================================

The theme song of the game, "Late Goodbye" by "Poets of the Fall" can be 
heard many times in the game.

the song's tune.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 4) "Late Goodbye" by "Poets of the Fall" #4 /
---------------------------------------------
 Part 2 Chapter 4 /
------------------
In this level, if you go towards the staircase and stand at the bottom, then 
you can hear the black-suit at the top of the stair-case whistle to the 
song's tune. But, it doesn't always happen for me, so I can't guarantee it.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 5) "Late Goodbye" by "Poets of the Fall" #5 /
---------------------------------------------
 Part 3 Chapter 6 /
------------------
In this level, you can hear a Cleaner singing it while scrubbing the 
spraypaint off the wall.

Just like in Max Payne 1, you can have Max Payne play the theme of the game 
on the various instruments, like pianos, etc.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 1) Piano & the Max Payne Theme #1 /
-----------------------------------
 Part 1 Chapter 7 /
------------------
In this level, you can play the Piano that the two cleaners are playing. But 
you must make sure that the lid doesn't fall off or else Max Payne won't be 
able to play it. The first time you use it, he will play the theme at normal 
speed; the second time you try the same, he will play it at a faster speed.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 2) Piano & the Max Payne Theme #2 /
-----------------------------------
 Part 3 Chapter 7 /
------------------
In this level too, you can play the Piano that is in the big room (second 
room of the level) after the falling-ceiling-room. But you must make sure 
that the lid doesn't fall off or else Max Payne won't be able to play it. The 
first time you use it, he will play the theme at normal speed; the second 
time you try the same, he will play it at a faster speed.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


=============================================================================
 Group 5: Mona Sax's hidden features
=============================================================================

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 1) Mona Sax's hidden features /
-------------------------------
 Part 1 Chapter 3 /
------------------
When Mona Sax's body comes out on a sliding bed in the Hospital Morgue, you 
can nearly see her entire left breast. It is interesting to note that you can

transported), you can see the entire of Mona Sax's naked body from behind.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


=============================================================================
 Group 6: Falling from Great Height!!!
=============================================================================

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 1) Falling from Great Height!!! #1 /
------------------------------------
 Part 2 Chapter 2 /
------------------
Halfway through the level, you will come across a long corridor (left side) 
where a thug will be camping at the far end. Just behind him is a big hole on 
the ground. Use the tables to get near him. When you get real close to him, 
come out of cover and shootdodge towards him (but not at him, aim for his 
left side) and be sure to kill him. Doing so will trigger a cool death-
sequence. Now, you must make sure that you fell through the hole while the 
cut-scene (death-sequence). You will find yourself two floors down, still 
alive & kicking when you regain control. This may take a couple of tries.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 2) Falling from Great Height!!! #2 /
------------------------------------
 Part 2 Chapter 6 /
------------------
Halfway through the level, after you cross the bridge, you will see 4 thugs. 
Show yourself to them and two of them will come for you, kill them. The other 
two will go and camp on top of the staircase platform. Kill one of them and 
charge towards the other one. When you get real close to him, shootdodge 
towards the gap in the middle of the staircase and be sure to kill him. Doing 
so will trigger a cool death-sequence. Now, you must make sure that you fell 
through the hole while the cut-scene (death-sequence). You will find yourself 
at the bottom of the staircase, still alive & kicking when you regain 
control. This may take a couple of tries. You skipped nearly a dozen of 
enemies!!!

 Group 7: Voice Mails (telephone)!!!
=============================================================================

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 1) Phone Tapping - Mona & Mona Sax /
------------------------------------
 Part 1 Chapter 4 /
------------------
Once you reach the apartment from where you were being sniped at (spied from) 
in the beginning, you will get a cut-scene. After that, you can use the 
phone-tapping device on the table to listen to the last three phone calls 
made by Max Payne.

To Detective Winterson: First call will be to Detective Winterson (police) if 
you used the phone in the beginning to call police.

To Jim Bravura: Second call will be from Jim Bravura to Max Payne lecturing 
him for being 'late again'.

To Mona (Dangerous Liasons): And lastly, it will play Max Payne's call to 
Dangerous Liasons, where he will talk to a phone sex girl called 'Mona'. 
Interesting thing to note is that this 'Mona' & 'Mona Sax' share the same 
voice actress.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 2) Voice Mail of Vinnie Gognitti /
----------------------------------
 Part 3 Chapter 4 /
------------------
If you check the telephone on the table in Vinnie Gognitti's room, then you 
will hear the last three recorded messages. They are from:

           big Boss who has helped Vinnie Gognitti loads of times. But now,
           he refuses to help Vinnie Gognitti in his war against the Russian,
           Vladimir Lem.

Girlfriend: She seems angry and threatens Vinnie Gognitti.

Mona Sax: She tells him that Vladimir Lem is coming to get him. She also
          clarifies that she told him because she wanted to make it more
          difficult for Vladimir Lem.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 3) Voice Mail of Alfred Woden /

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 Weapon & Weapon Ammo Location (Not so Obvious ones)               (1140)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Only those weapons and weapon ammo have been mentioned here which are located 
in the places which can be considered out-of-the-way. In my opinion, such 
places could easily have been over-looked by many players if they are not 
exploring the levels in detail. And so, I have decided to include them in my 
FAQ.


=============================================================================
 Part I: The Darkness Inside
=============================================================================


=============================================================================
 Prologue
=============================================================================

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 None so far /

=============================================================================
 Chapter 1: Elevator Doors
=============================================================================

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 1) On the two shelves near the 1st TV /
---------------------------------------
After the cut-scene ends, make your between the shelves towards the door 
where you meet the first cleaner. But, in stead of going towards the door, 
turn left and go towards the box at the far end, the one which is kissing the 
wall on the right. Jump onto it and then onto the 2nd box on top of the first 
one. From here, you can go two ways:

i) Jump onto the boxes on the left (diagonally left) and check the shelf to 
find some Ingram ammo.

ii) Jump onto an even higher (3rd) box on the right side, and then onto next 
one, the box at the farthest, last one. From here, you can see the small 
booth with the TV. Now, look straight, and jump across onto the box near the 
pillar, near the booth (left). It may take a few tries. Once you have made 
it, make your way along the line of boxes to the end to find a weapon, 
Ingram. And then, jump onto the boxes in the shelf on the left to find a 
painkiller.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 2) Use the hauler /
-------------------
After killing the first two cleaners, you will get to see a Ragnarock 
Billboard in a big room with a hauler at far end of the room to the right. 
You can use the hauler to lift the plank with an explosive barrel on it. Do 
it and use the plank to climb up. Jump onto the carbon box, and then onto the 
box kissing the wall. Go to the end and check the wooden box to find a 
Painkiller, 9mm Ammo, & a grenade.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


=============================================================================
 Chapter 2: A Criminal Mastermind
=============================================================================

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 1) At the start /
-----------------
As soon you resume control, check the passage on the right side to find a 
couple of painkillers.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 2) Hidden Grenades /
--------------------
Remember the room with Ragnarock Souvenirs??? Just before the end of the 
level, in the big room where about 10 thugs attack you from the above floor, 
there is a door on the left side. If you go into that room, you will find all 
the goodies from Ragnarock (nightclub in Max Payne 1) including Ragnarock's 
billboard, the musical instruments, book shelves, etc. Now, jump over the 
goodies and go to the middle of the big stack of goodies to find a few 
grenades.

=============================================================================

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 1) Old Lady with the Shotgun /
------------------------------
You can talk to the first old woman you meet in the level to get a Shotgun 
from her.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 2) The Deaf Old Woman with the Painkillers /
--------------------------------------------
You can talk to the deaf old woman (second old woman) to get some painkillers 
from her.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 3) On your way to Ed the Janitor /
----------------------------------
After taking the lift down to the bottom floor, you will get to kill three 
cleaners. Now, in stead of going down to the basement, take the staircase 
opposite the lift to the the 2nd floor. You will find some Shotgun & Desert 
Eagle ammo on the ground near the staircase.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


=============================================================================
 Chapter 5: A Sign of Her Passage
=============================================================================

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 1) The Top Floor /
------------------
After killing the first set of cleaners, in stead of going down, go up the 
staircase to the top floor. You will find 4 cardboard boxes on top of each 
other. You will find Kalashnikov & Desert Eagle ammo & Painkiller on the top 
of the topmost box.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 2) Painkillers anyone??? /
--------------------------
After you have turned off the gas valve and entered the burned (blackened) 
out room, in stead of going out of the balcony, go into the room on the right 
side (half-burning). And then, jump over the shelves and go into the bathroom 
to find a couple of painkillers. I really think that many people don't know 
about this.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 3) Just round the Pipe - Loads of Goodies (Ammo, etc.) /
--------------------------------------------------------
After exiting the burned (blackened) out room through the balcony, and 
killing a few enemies, proceed in your path. When you reach the top (after 
killing another couple of enemies), there is a pipe that is blocking the 
right side ledge. From here, you're supposed to jump onto the scaffolding on 
the left. But, if you try, you can jump round the pipe onto the right side. 
After jumping, the ledge is broken. Jump over it to find a few sniper rifle 
ammo. After that, there is a big gap between this & the next part. You will 
need to shootdodge to get there. When you do, forward and go right to find 
loads of goodies, such as Molotovs, Desert Eagle Ammo, Sniper Rifle Ammo, 
Painkillers, Ingram ammo, etc.

 1) Loads of Ammo /
------------------
You can find 120 rounds of Kalashnikov ammo at the start of the level. After 
killing the two cleaners beyond the fence, go near the wooden staircase near 
the middle of the passage. Two more cleaners will come down from the 
staircase; kill them but don't go up the staircase. Instead, go beyond the 
staircase to the other end of the passage; you will come across a locked 
doorway. There is a wooden box on the side of that doorway booth. Use it to 
jump over to the other side of the doorway booth to find loads of Kalashnikov 
ammo behind two more boxes. Enjoy!!!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


=============================================================================
 Chapter 2: In the Middle of Something
=============================================================================

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 1) Ammo behind the Partition Table /
------------------------------------
Nearly halfway through the level, you will come across a big room with 5 
cleaners inside it. If you try the double door, it will be locked and you 
will hear two thugs talking on the other side. Then you will have to go to 
the room on the left, go to another room through a hole in the wall on the 
right and again go through a door on the right to enter the big hall. There 
are big red explosive boxes in the middle of the room and if you shoot it, 
then half of the room's flooring (left side's) will be gone. In this room, 
after killing all the five cleaners, go to the room on the opposite door 
(though you are supposed to take the door in the middle on the left side. 
After entering the room, check behind the three standing/partition table at 
the far end corner to the right side to find some Sniper Rifle Ammo, Mp5 Ammo 
& Molotovs.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 2) Ammo behind the Partition Table /
------------------------------------
In the same big room, go through the middle door on the left side to continue 
forward. And after taking another door on the left, a cut-scene will begin. 
You're now in the "Room with Illegal Firearms, enough to outfit an Army." 
This room is full of stacks of green boxes. You will get tons of MP5 ammo 
here, and a few painkillers too, but these are not what we are looking for. 
In stead, go round the stack of boxes to the other side and you will see a 
passage among the boxes leading to the pillar in between the boxes. Go near 
the pillar to get some more MP5 ammo & more importantly, some Sniper Rifle 
ammo.

and a plank hanging out from the doorway). Go to the extreme of the plank and

 In-game Television Shows & Commercials                            (1150)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Just like in the first Max Payne game, you again get to see various shows 
including Costume Drama, Sitcoms, Cartoons, News, etc. on the TV. In fact, 
the game is full of them and you can follow the TV to get a few funny 
conversations and a few extra stories which run alongside Max Payne's story 
throughout the game.


=============================================================================
 Television Shows
=============================================================================

There are about 6 TV shows consisting of a costume drama, a psychological 
thriller, a parody & revenge drama, an adult late-night movie, a violent 
cartoon series, and the News. Some of these shows often relate to the Max 
Payne's story.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 1) Lords & Ladies /\ A Costume Drama /
-------------------  -----------------
This is a costume drama which is set in the 18th century. This is a 
continuation from the previous Max Payne game, in which we got only one or 
two Lords & Ladies episode. This time round, they have fully developed the 
series and given it a Grand Finale in the final levels. However, the single 
episode from Part 1, Chapter 3 of the first Max Payne game is better than all 
of the episodes in this game combined.

-------------
 Fun Facts /
-----------
- None so far.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 2) Address Unknown /\ A Psychological Thriller /
--------------------  --------------------------
A psychological thriller, the protagonist is a supposedly mentally ill person 
who has escaped from a mental institution, and who is troubled by a 
doppelganger (look-alike) named John Mirra. The protagonist eventually 
discovers that he himself was John Mirra all the time. This series, too, 
appeared in the first Max Payne game in a couple of episodes. And again, they 
have fully developed the series and rounded it off with a Grand Finale in the 
final levels of the game.

-------------
 Fun Facts /
-----------
- Mona Sax lives in an abandoned funhouse which is themed on this show.

- The face of the original Max Payne from the first game has been used for
  this show's protagonist, which is the face of the game's writer, Sam Lake.

- If you type/hit "addressunknown.tv" into your internet browser, then it
  will take you to Max Payne 2's website.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 3) Dick Justice /\ A Parody & A Revenge Drama /
-----------------  ----------------------------
Dick Justice is, simply put, a parody made on the life of Max Payne. In your 
first encounter with Dick Justice in the game, you will witness the 
proceedings of the first level of Max Payne 1, where Dick Justice, like Max 
Payne, loses his wife and then, he decides to go after the criminal 
underworld. This is a new TV show in the Max Payne universe.

-------------
 Fun Facts /
-----------
- Another interesting thing about this TV series is its name. In Max Payne 1,
  one of the Commandos (enemies), in his talk to a comrade, reveal that he
  has named his gun "Dick Justice".

- The first name for Max Payne 1 during early production was "Dark Justice".
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 4) The Adventures of Captain Baseball-bat Boy /\ A Violent Cartoon Series /
-----------------------------------------------  --------------------------
This show is about a Kid Superhero, Captain Baseball-bat Boy, who likes to 
use his Baseball Bat as a weapon. In this game, he goes after the evil 
Maxwell's Demon in order to save his not-really-a-girlfriend, Bicyclehelmet 
Girl. The show also features Zombie Demons from Outer Space. This show 
doesn't really have an end like the other shows.

-------------
 Fun Facts /
-----------
- This show is based on the Captain Baseball-bat Boy Newspaper Comic Strip
  from the first Max Payne game.

- In the first game, we got to see movie posters of "Zombie from Outer Space"
  on the walls. They have appeared in this show!!!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 5) Max Heat 7 /\ An Adult Late-Night Movie /
---------------  ---------------------------
Right from the beginning of the game, you will get to see an advertisement 
for Max Heat 7, an adult late-night movie entertainment, which you will 
ultimately end up seeing in one of the latter levels.

-------------
 Fun Facts /
-----------
- You will eventually get to see this movie in Part 3, Chapter 3.

- "Max Heat" was the 2nd name given to Max Payne 1 during early development.

- Max Heat magazines can be found in the first Max Payne game.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 6) NYCNN News /\ News /
---------------  ------
Kyra Silver, the newsreader for NYCNN News Channel, is back and she is again 
providing some valuable information and also has a nice surprise for you at 
the end of the game. You will get to see TV news on various occasions 
throughout the game. It generally provides you with information about how the 
public and the police view the events unfolding in the game.

-------------
 Fun Facts /
-----------
- At the end of the last level of the game, you will get to enter Alfred
  Woden's office. In that office, there is a TV and you can watch the news on
  it. Contrary to popular beliefs, Jim Bravura survives the assault in the
  hospital and is in stable condition!!!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


=============================================================================
 Television Shows in the Dream Levels
=============================================================================

You will get to see various television shows featuring the main characters of 
the game during the dream levels. These shows can be related to the events 
leading up this point. Some of the TV shows in these levels, though can not 
be confirmed, can be said to have actually happened in the course of the 
story. But, all the shows happen in Max Payne's dream, aka his sub-conscious 
mind.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 1) A Binary Choice /\ 2nd Dream Level /
--------------------  -----------------
-------------------
 Part 3 Prologue /
-----------------
This show can be seen in Part 3: Prologue, after you're transported to the 
Police Station Lock-up Cells. However, this is simply a rehash of the Ending 
Graphic Novel of the previous level, Part 2: Chapter 6.

-------------
 Fun Facts /
-----------
- The name of the show has been taken from the name of Part 2, which too, is
  "A Binary Choice".
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 2) Dearest of All My Friends /\ 3rd Dream Level /
------------------------------  -----------------
--------------------
 Part 3 Chapter 6 /
------------------
This is Quiz Show featuring Vladimir Lem & Vinnie Gognitti. Vinnie Gognitti 
is trapped inside the Captain Baseball-bat Boy Costume which is rigged with a 
bomb, and Vladimir Lem has the remote. Vladimir Lem promises to free Vinnie 
Gognitti if he can answer the 2 Questions based on the Captain Baseball-bat 
Boy Comics/Show correctly. However, Vladimir Lem's 2nd Question turns out to 
be a trick Question: "Who is the original creator of Maxwell's Demon???" 
Vinnie Gognitti's first answer is the fictional creator, "Doctor Entropy". 
However, he quickly changes his answer to the show's creator, "Sammy Waters". 
But the real answer turns out to be James Clerk Maxwell, a nineteenth century 
British Physicist, who created a Maxwell's Demon thought experiment. Thus 
Vinnie Gognitti loses the Quiz Round and gets himself blown up as Vladimir 
Lem detonates the bomb.

-------------
 Fun Facts /
-----------
- The title of the show is based on Vladimir Lem's catchphrase, "Dearest of
  All My Friends".

- The 2nd Q that Vladimir Lem asks Vinnie Gognitti is "Who is the original
  creator of Maxwell's Demon???" Vinnie Gognitti answers "The show's writer
  Sammy Waters." This very well could be a reference & tribute to the game's
  writer and the model for the first Max Payne, Sam Lake.

- The Captain Baseball-bat Boy Toy Model next to the TV also blows up as soon
  as Vladimir Lem detonates the bomb in the TV. Just as Vladimir Lem presses
  the bomb remote button in the TV show, the toy's head gets blown away!!!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 3) One-Armed Bandit /\ 3rd Dream Level /
---------------------  -----------------
--------------------
 Part 3 Chapter 6 /
------------------
In this show, we see Vladimir Lem and Mona Sax engaged in a conversation. In 
it, Vladimir Lem makes a proposal to Mona Sax. He tells her to join him, and 
together they can rule the NY Underworld. Mona Sax refuses the offer and 
shoots him in the left arm. Vladimir Lem tells his men to "Get her! Get the 
bitch!"

-------------
 Fun Facts /
-----------
- The title of the show is based on one of the lines said by Mona Sax in Part
  2, Prologue. While in the interrogation room, Mona Sax is asked to repeat
  the following line: "You are nothing but a one-armed bandit."

- This could very well be a reference to how Vladimir Lem's left hand got
  injured earlier. In Part 1 Chapter 2, on being questioned by Max Payne
  about his injured hand, Vladimir Lem says, "A hot date yesterday".

- Also, in Part 3 Chapter 2, one of Vladimir Lem's thugs says, "Is the killer
  chick with him? The one that shot boss in the arm?" Thus, giving this
  notion more support.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


=============================================================================
 Commercials
=============================================================================

Well, what did you think??? You can get away from the commercials in the 
game's TV shows??? Where there's TV shows, there'll always be TV commercials 
to accompany their cousins. There are about 10-15 commercials that can be 
found in the game.

1) Lots of Empty Clips: Similar to the glitch in Max Payne 1, it allows you 
to drop the same clip on the ground numerous times by jumping, this involves 
the same technique. Once you've hit the reload button, do a jump roll (not 
shootdodge) to the left, right or back as soon as the clip is coming out, 
when you come out of the jump roll, Max will drop the clip again, and the 
process can begin anew. However, jumping up or forward will not affect the 
reload.

2) Super Jump: Switch from a one-handed weapon (i.e. pistols, SMGs, etc.) to 
a two-handed weapon (i.e. Shotgun, Rifles, etc.) or vice-versa, and 
immediately press jump.

=============================================================================
1) Different Character Models: While playing, press Page Up and Page Down 
keys to toggle between the various character models of the game. I think you 
can control all the models seen in the game. I really can't guarantee it, 
though. You can also press F11 to view player statistics and FPS.

Notes:

 i) This code doesn't work during cut-scenes.
ii) Different character models come with their specific qualities, i.e., some 
models will have no slow motion, some will have infinite 9mm ammo, and some 
will have no weapons at all. There is also a difference between their running 
speeds.
=============================================================================

=============================================================================
2) Three Modes of View: You can press 'F3' to toggle between the different 
modes of view. There are three modes of viewpoint which are-

(a) Normal mode---the mode in which you play.

(b) Free-moving Camera---with this mode enabled, you can see any part of the 
level.

(c) Fixed-camera--- with this mode enabled, the camera will remain fixed, and 
the screen won't change while you are free to move.
=============================================================================

=============================================================================
3) Start point: You can press 'Delete' or 'Insert' to toggle between 
different start points. Each level has a few of them.
=============================================================================

=============================================================================
4) Speed up/Slow down the game: You can press 'home' and 'end' to speed up or 
slow down the game.

=============================================================================
5) Taking cool Screenshots: To take cool screenshots, you need to change the 
target of your shortcut to the following:

"C:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\Max Payne 2\MaxPayne2.exe" -developerkeys-
screenshot

Then when you're playing, press the pause button and then F3 and you'll be 
able to move the camera around freely, and with F10 you'll take a screenshot 
which will be saved in a folder called 'screenshots' in your Max Payne 2 
folder. To get the camera back to normal just press the F3 button two more 
times.

        Right through this amazing game, you will meet characters, good and

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
=============================================================================


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 1. Hospital
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The hospital is nicely detailed and all the equipments, furnitures, designs, 
etc. look appropriate. You will get to revisit this place several times, both 
in the real-time levels and in the dream levels.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level: Part I, Prologue. /
--------------------------
The Hospital is where you begin this fantastic game. You will start off in a 
hospital room which is very detailed. In this level, you will try to run away 
from the room where you were being treated, but on your way out of here, you 
will come across the enemies who have come to assassinate you. However, this 
level is just an introduction and you only get to kill one enemy. You will 
end the level by visiting The Hospital Morgue.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level: Part I, Chapter 3 (in Dream; Partial). /
-----------------------------------------------
The entire level takes place in a dream (Max Payne's) and you will get to 
visit several key locations of the game in this single level. One of these 
key locations is The Hospital Morgue. The physics associated with this level 
is different from the normal levels, and that makes it a refreshing revisit 
to the place.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level: Part III, Prologue. /
----------------------------
The Hospital Room & Corridor makes another guest appearance in Max Payne's 
2nd dream.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level: Part III, Chapter 1. /
-----------------------------
You will again get to resume from where you left off in the Part I: Prologue, 
The Hospital Morgue. But, this time round, you will have plenty of goons to 
kill. The entire place is being attacked by Bad Guys with Guns, and you will 
have to fight it out through the level, and that fight takes place throughout 
the Hospital. The level will end in the Hospital Garage. This whole fighting-
it-out thing gives this level a different atmosphere which makes this revisit 
yet again a refreshing experience.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 2. Warehouse (Vladimir Lem's)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Vladimir Lem's warehouse is the front for any number of illegal fire-arms 
businesses of the man, Vlad. The warehouse is the home only to the 1st 
Chapter of the 1st Part. You won't get to revisit this place a 2nd time 
during the play through.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level: Part I, Chapter 1. /
---------------------------
The warehouse is nicely detailed and you will get many opportunities to be 
the Creator of Big & Bad Explosions as many explosive barrels are scattered 
throughout this level. The place has everything, right from big rooms 
(naturally), shelves, cargo, haulers, and what not!!! You will get to use 
many of the things placed in this level. And the fact that you don't have to 
come back again to this place gives it a sense of exclusivity to it, which is 
not the matter with many of the levels.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 3. Restaurant - Vodka (Vladimir Lem's)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Vodka, the place belongs to Vladimir Lem, one of the chief characters of the 
game. And if you have played the first Max Payne game, then you will 
recognize many of the places that you get to visit in the restaurant, as this 
is a revamped version of one of the locations of the first game, Ragnarock - 
A Nightclub. But the atmosphere is completely different from the first. And 
it is really detailed and attractive. You will get to wreck this place in two 
levels (chapters).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level: Part I, Chapter 2. /
---------------------------
The first time that you visit this place, you will notice that the place is 
being revamped, and now, it has a different feel to it from the first game. 
You will recognize quite a few corridors, passages, etc. from the first game. 
On your first visit to the place, you will arrive at the place only to find 
that the place is already under attack. And you will have to kill the bad 
guys to save your friend.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level: Part III, Chapter 2. /
-----------------------------
On your second visit to the place, it will be you who will start to wreck the 
place. And, in this level, your motive will be the opposite of what it was in 
the first visit. The place itself looks different, as you will visit newer 
areas of the restaurant while occasionally passing through older areas. You 
will also get to see the garage of the place. The place will also have many 
explosions which was not the case in your first visit. All these things 
combine to give you a refreshingly different experience of the place.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 4. Max Payne's Apartment Building
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This location is one of the main places in the game. It is home to Max Payne, 
and to quite a few levels (chapters) in the game.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level: Part I, Chapter 3 (in Dream; Partial). /
-----------------------------------------------
The 1st time that you get to see Max Payne's Apartment Building is in one of 
his dreams. The entire level takes place in a dream (Max Payne's) and you 
will get to visit several key locations of the game in this single level. One 
of these key locations is Max Payne's Apartment Building. The entire place 
looks kinda weird and it has altered physics attached to it too (like all the 
dream levels). It looks beautiful but you only see a small part of the 
building which consists of Max's Apartment, and the corridor area.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level: Part I, Chapter 4. /
---------------------------
Now, this is where you really get to know the place & the neighbourhood. You 
will really get to explore the neighbourhood, you will meet the crazy old 
neighbours; will get to walk over ledges outside the windows, get to kill 
many more enemies; get to visit many houses, etc.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level: Part I, Chapter 5. /
---------------------------
This is just like a continuation of the previous level. But it has one 
difference to it, the entire place is up under fire, the place is being 
turned to dust because of the fire, and you are expected to kill the flames 
before you can proceed further.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level: Part III, Chapter 6. /
-----------------------------
Max Payne Apartment Building is the main location of Max Payne's dream. The 
corridors, houses, all make an appearance in the level.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 5. Funhouse (Mona Sax's Place)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Funhouse is an abandoned place adopted by Mona Sax as her hideout in the 
game. It has a far-removed design to it than anything that you may have seen 
in this franchise or any other shooters out there. This location also plays 
home to quite a few levels (chapters) in the game.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level: Part I, Chapter 6. /
---------------------------
The first time that you visit this place, you will be amazed at the way this 
level plays. It is a far cry from what you have ever done in this franchise. 
In fact, no other shooter has such a level to showcase. In stead of shooting, 
you will be treated to a more comical & psychological experiences as you make 
your way deeper into the funhouse.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level: Part II, Chapter 1. /
----------------------------
A revisit to Mona Sax's place, but with a twist!!! After a brief love-making 
scene, you will get to experience a fiery fire-fight with more cleaners. It 
seems that the bad guys have found out about the place and now, they are 
coming to get ya all. You will experience the same places but with a 
different agenda. The place will be a war zone by the end, and boy, does it 
look like it at the end. Big explosions, bullets & bodies flying everywhere, 
and few more fun ways to kill a few enemies, what more can you want!!!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level: Part III, Prologue. /
----------------------------
The Funhouse's Bathroom makes a 2 second appearance in Max Payne's 2nd dream.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level: Part III, Chapter 5. /
-----------------------------
Your second visit to the place in real time is a different experience for 
you. This time round, you will visit the place as Mona Sax, and there won't 
be any shooting the enemies. The place is up in flames and you will have to 
navigate through the fire and find someone you love...before the flames get 
him.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 6. Upper East Side Apartment Building (Senator Gate's/Inner Circle Members')
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This high-rise apartment building is a far cry from Max Payne's apartment 
building. This place belongs to the rich & uber-rich people, and boy, does it 
look the part!!! This place is home for Senator Gate and to the rest of the 
Inner-circle members. You will only get to visit the place in one level 
(chapter).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level: Part I, Chapter 7. /
---------------------------
This apartment building level, like all of the other levels in the game is 
richly detailed and every attention has been paid to the minutest details. 
Perhaps, one of the most fun level in the game, it has everything. Right from 
security cameras, elevators, scaffoldings, cleaners' lift, many houses, and 
more importantly, many-many cleaners for you to hunt down. It is a blast to 
play through this level.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 7. The Police Station
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is the first time that we get to see Max Payne's office in the 
franchise. The Police Station also plays home to a key level (chapter) in the 
game. And it also appears in the dream levels of the game. It is nicely 
detailed with many interesting conversations for you to discover.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level: Part I, Chapter 3 (in Dream; Partial). /
-----------------------------------------------
The entire level takes place in a dream (Max Payne's) and you will get to 
visit several key locations of the game in this single level. One of these 
key locations is The Police Station's Interrogation Room. But, you won't have 
to spend more than a few seconds here, not even 10 seconds.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level: Part II, Prologue. /
---------------------------
Like all the other levels, this place too is nicely detailed. This level 
showcases the work-place of Max Payne & the police department. The level is 
made much more interactive than many levels, and it is not based on the 
mantra of shooting everybody on sight. In stead, you get a breather from 
constant shooting, as you get to explore the place for funny conservations 
between different police officers, interrogations, police complaints from a 
hot woman, etc. But don't worry; you do get to shoot a few cleaners near the 
end of the level.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level: Part III, Prologue. /
----------------------------
The Police Station is the main location of Max Payne's 2nd dream, but it's 
not the only location for the dream. The Police Lock-up Cells, the 
Staircases, & the Partitioned Office Booths of the Cops make an appearance.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level: Part III, Chapter 6. /
-----------------------------
The Partitioned Office Booths of Cops & the Interrogation Room makes an 
appearance in Max Payne 3rd dream.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 8. Condemned Building (Near the Construction Site)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This place is located next to a construction site, and this place too is 
undergoing construction at the time. This is supposed to be the cleaners' 
hideout. At least two levels take place here, considering Construction Site 
as a different location.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level: Part II, Chapter 2. /
----------------------------
Your first visit to the place and you will love it. You will love the big bad 
explosions that take place here. The big rooms, entire building undergoing 
constructions, broken down lifts, huge staircases, parking lots, floors upon 
floors and big holes created into them by the explosions, and more big 
explosions (nothing that you have seen so far) make it a memorable visit.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level: Part II, Chapter 3. /
----------------------------
Same place but with one big difference - the entire place is being burned 
down to ashes and more big explosions isn't quite helping the matters!!! You 
won't get many enemies to kill; the idea is to find a way out of here alive. 
You will need to avoid the explosions and the flames. In my opinion, this 
level is the most beautiful of the game.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 9. Construction Site
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now, for the first time in the game, you will get to play a Mona Sax. Three 
levels (chapters) take place here. These levels look like the construction 
site, but there is a difference to it too.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level: Part II, Chapter 4. /
----------------------------
In this level, you will get to blast many more enemies, but from Mona Sax's 
point-of-view. This level too is very detailed. You get a new sniper weapon, 
witness some more explosions, kill a few more bad guys, and the like. One 
interesting thing though, the level's timeline is the same as Part II, 
Chapter 2.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level: Part II, Chapter 5. /
----------------------------
In this level, you will witness the end of Part II, Chapter 3 from a 
scaffolding of another building. You will have to save Max Payne too in this 
level, if something happens to him, then it will be game over for you too. 
Thus, giving it an excusive feature of the game!!! You will get many 
opportunities to practice your sniping skills as you try to get the thugs 
down on the yard from the scaffolding.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level: Part II, Chapter 6. /
----------------------------
Again, you get to do what you did in the previous level, snipe, shoot, blow 
up explosive barrels, and the rest of it.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 10. Slum Neighbourhood
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This place is one of New York's poorest & shadiest areas. This place will 
only appear in a couple of level, one of which is a guest appearance in one 
Max Payne's dream.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level: Part III, Chapter 3. /
-----------------------------
You will get to see some not so beautiful buildings, the place lacks any 
designer furnishings, is home to the poor people, and the houses are in a 
crumbling state. And the designers have done a great work to make it look 
like this. And what's more, you will get to kill members from both the Gangs 
- Vinnie Gognitti's & Vladimir Lem's. At one point, you will actually get to 
pose as one of Vinnie's men & combine your powers with his men to kill 
members of Vlad's Gang. The place is being destroyed because of the Gang-War.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level: Part III, Chapter 6. /
-----------------------------
This location makes a guest appearance in Max Payne's 3rd dream.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 11. Used Car Lot (Vinnie Gognitti's)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This place belongs to Vinnie Gognitti. He even has his house here, which is 
full Captain Baseball-bat Boy Souvenirs. This place too only has one level 
(chapter) dedicated to the place.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level: Part III, Chapter 4. /
-----------------------------
This level takes place in and around a couple of big houses, and the place is 
a Used Car Lot. One of the houses is Vinnie Gognitti's. The place if full of 
minor details, especially the house. This too is a fun level, and you're 
supposed to protect Vinnie Gognitti from the enemies. If something happens to 
him, then it will be game over for you too.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 12. The Manor (Alfred Woden's)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Manor belongs to Alfred Woden, the One-eyed Man. This place is full of 
sculptures depicting the importance of love in the life of Men & Women. The 
game's final two levels (chapters) are dedicated to the place.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level: Part III, Chapter 7. /
-----------------------------
This will be the first time that you will get to see Alfred Woden's Manor 
outside of Graphic Novels. The place is full of enemies who are here for a 
reason which will be quite clear to you. You will have a blast playing 
through the level. Many enemies, big blasts, falling ceiling, the level has 
it all.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Level: Part III, Chapter 8. /
-----------------------------
A continuation of the previous level but with a difference!!! You will need 
to show more urgency in your actions as the place is being blown to bits, and 
boy, does it look like it. The place is rigged with bombs, loads of it, and 
you will have keep on going forward without wasting much time if you want to 
survive. This is the finale of the game and you will love it.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
=============================================================================


=============================================================================
1) What is the time that the events in the game unfold in???

A: The events of this game unfold in one day & 2 nights. It is interesting to 
note that the game takes place only during night time!!!
=============================================================================


=============================================================================
2) So, what you are saying is that Max kills over 600 people in less than 60 
hours???

A: Exactly.
=============================================================================


=============================================================================
3) Is beating the game in higher difficulty setting worth it???

A: You get a different ending if you beat the game on 'Dead On Arrival' mode. 
But, it's no big deal. They just change the last Graphic Novel of the game, 
in which, one of the character ********. <<<<SPOILERS (go find it out for 
yourself). Or you can check the CHEATS SECTION of the FAQ for a shortcut 
method to see the secret ending.
=============================================================================


=============================================================================
4) Is Max Payne 3 out or is it being planned???

A: As of now, NO. A third part has been announced by the Rockstar Games, but 
there hasn't been any news regarding it for quite a while now. No one knows 
anything about it. Max Payne fans are quite skeptical about the future of 
this franchise. It may very well be all over for Max Payne!!! But, let's hope 
that they do actually make it.
=============================================================================


=============================================================================
5) Is this game a PC Exclusive???

A: Nope. You can find this game for various consoles including Xbox, 
Playstation 2, and even handheld consoles.
=============================================================================


=============================================================================
6) Can I email you for help or query???

A: You can. But make sure it's not about something stupid. And also, there's 
a high possibility that I won't answer you back.
=============================================================================


=============================================================================
7) Would you like a feedback for this FAQ???

A: Absolutely!!! Please give me your feedback. I had like to know what the 
readers thought of this FAQ/Walkthrough.
=============================================================================


=============================================================================
8) What is your e-mail address???

A: t2_people18@rediffmail.com
=============================================================================


=============================================================================
9) Do you have a website???

A: No, I don't. I was gonna develop my freewebs website and include all my 
blogs, reviews, FAQs/Walkthroughs, and also add a forum to it. But, I have 
scrapped the idea for good. I may, in the future, think about creating a 
website, but as of now, it's indefinitely off.

        This is my third faq/walkthrough for any game. Here's the complete 
list:

 (1) A Max Payne PC Faq/Walkthrough.
 (2) A Max Payne PC Character Faq (not found at Gamefaqs.com).
 (3) A Max Payne 2 PC Faq/Walkthrough.
 (4) A Max Payne 2 PC Easter-eggs & Fun Facts FAQ.

Hope you enjoyed it.

        I may or may not write another faq/walkthrough. It's very time 
consuming and so I haven't yet decided on the future.

                           His private life is a disgrace
                           I really could not tell to you
                           The awful things that rabbits do.
