Max Payne

Max Payne

Max Payne, the gritty ex-policeman and title character of this third-person shooter, sets out on his own to take revenge on those who murdered his wife and child, only for the conspiracy in which he is involved to get deeper and deeper. As his guilt and trauma grow, Payne finds himself in more and more impossible and perplexing situations that challenge his methods, his worldview, and even his very existence.


In December 2001, as New York City experiences the tail end of the worst snowstorm in the city's history, Max Payne, a rogue DEA agent and former NYPD detective, stands on the roof of a skyscraper with a sniper rifle in hand, smiling as police units arrive to arrest him. He then experiences flashbacks from three years ago and the last two days he lived. Three years earlier, on August 22, 1998, Max was working as a regular NYPD detective and had just finished his workday. His longtime friend and DEA agent Alex Balder invites him to join the DEA, but Max declines the offer because he wants to focus on his life with his wife Michelle and newborn daughter Rose. When he returns to his home in New Jersey, he finds that a trio of junkies have broken into his house, all addicted to a brand new designer drug, Valkyr. Max receives a call from a mysterious woman who seems to enjoy the trouble in the house and refuses to call for help. Max rushes to his family's aid and kills the junkies, but it's too late as he finds his wife shot and his daughter slaughtered. After his family's funeral, Payne accepts Alex's offer and, at his own request, transfers to the DEA to stop the spread of drugs.
