    Superb port of a superb game

    Can I just say this is one of the few mobile ports of a Rockstar game where the controls haven’t been butchered to hell? The controls here are prefect for mobile platforms. The dual-stick approach emulates the feel of the original control scheme, and the customizable HUD, with customizable button placement/sizes is a welcomed adjustment. The game runs very smoothly, but the only criticism I have is with the weapon select system. If you want to select different weapons within the category like the sawed-off shotgun or the classic dual-berettas, you have to go to the weapon select menu and tap the top weapon of that category, and keep entering and exiting the menu until you get the weapon you want. This is much more cumbersome compared to the on-the-fly weapon selection of the console version. If you can fix this so you can tap on the weapon you want and instead of the current system, it would be a much appreciated fix. Also, totally unrelated, ADD MAX PAYNE 2 & 3!!! THIS SERIES DOESN’T DESERVE TO GO UNFINISHED!!! It’s an otherwise masterpiece and I wholeheartedly recommend checking it out.

    A great port for a classic game.

    Max Payne mobile is Rockstar games mobile port of an iconic and action packed series that redefined the 3rd person shooter genre. Everything you love about it is still here plus including accessibility options and enhanced contrast with additional settings and features for mobile. To Easy? Try the harder difficulty’s such as dead on arrival and New York minute for a real fun challenge. If your looking for a classic game that has action packed 3rd person shooter game mechanics Max Payne is the name for you. Rockstar created interesting well written characters and intriguing plot in the story. Buy it and enjoy the classic game 🙂👍

    Great story great gameplay

    Honestly I thought the game looked stupid and I was bored so I thought hey why not just give this game a try since it’s made by rockstar games so I bought it and played it and actually fell in love with the game and enjoyed it so much that I stayed up late tel 6:00 in the morning so I was late to school but it was worth it and the game became so addictive that I played it in class and played it while walking back home, that’s how good the game is and I consider adding L.A. Noire onto mobile or Grand Theft Auto IV but keep up the work and full screen the other GTA games on the App Store please rockstar.

    A Superb Game

    Ever since I got an Apple gift card this Christmas, I’ve been fretting on what to spend my money on. When it came down to the last couple bills, I saw some Rockstar games and bought this. And I wouldn’t have it any other way. The game works fairly well, and the ability to rearrange your control buttons is really nice. Most levels aren’t hard to play at all. One issue is that it’s fairly difficult sometimes to figure out where to go, or what to do. But I don’t mind that. The levels are fun to play and maneuver (for the most part), and the comic style strips match the noir, and gritty attitude. The story is very interesting and definitely wants to see what happens next in Payne’s story. The Bullet-Time feature is perfect and works well on mobile. It’s very satisfying to dodge bullets and shoot right back. As a content creator (albeit a small one), this game was a blast to play, and I can’t wait to replay it on harder difficulties.

    Really good, but one problem

    This game was amazing the shooting felt really good, the story was amazing, the difficulty was fair, but the problem is with the saves. Personally I do not think there is enough saves and if you run out you can’t play the game. and I have deleted and got the app back and my saves that I want gone are still there and when I start a new game the saves are always low. It ruined the game for me and it saddened me to not have saves or play the game please fix this problem.

    Brings me back

    Nothing to complain about besides that there isn’t an Apple TV port. I’ve become so accustomed to switching back and forth from iPhone to iPad to MacBook to Apple TV that this seems a little strange that I can’t do that with this game. I understand that certain apps don’t convert well to Apple TV but video games seem like a no brainer. Especially with the Apple TV presenting itself more like a game console inside of a set top box. P.S. I would love to see Max Payne 2 on here; I know I’m not the only one. Great job guys!!!

  • By Charles P. Ulrich

    I love Max Payne but...

    This app is unplayable. I get to the first encounter and as soon as I shoot my gun the game crashes. Shooting your gun in general will crash the game. Shoot your gun before the first encounter and it crashes anyway. I love this game and way to play it. Will update review when rockstar solves that problem. Edit: it’s like they read my review and took it personal. Updated the game days after my initial review and did it in my birthday. It took them since September but hey, they got it fixed. Good job, Devs.

    Freezes on first level!

    I’m not happy at all. Max Payne is one of my favorite games of all time and was excited to play it in my new iPhone but the problem is that in the first mission when i shoot the first intruder the game crashes and shuts the game off completely. I want this game fixed or my money back. Buyer beware! (Update) Rockstar released an update on the game and it works perfect! Thank you for listening to my comment Rockstar!

    “Perfect, but not perfect” ...

    The story is elegant, the gameplay is elegant, the controls, the attackers, layout, graphics, EVERYTHING is elegant! But, on PC, I wish gore was attached to this game including the NPC textures, immersive shooting on walls/bullet time slow-mo bullet sounds when it passes over you, yaddah-yaddah-yaddah.. would need a lot of MORE elegance and perfection would you attached to this to make it more of a “Max Payne” enough game. And remember: be ready for the pain.

    Great port of a classic game!

    This port brings a gritty, classic game to mobile. Same cheesy dialogue and comic book-style cutscenes. The game is just as awesome as ever — the touch screen controls take a little getting used to, but the game’s difficulty leans in favor of the player so you don’t feel punished by the learning curve. Overall, great job by Rockstar for bringing this to mobile and fixing compatibility with iOS 11! Now, about Max Payne 2...

  • By Fazzi

    Still a solid game

    Runs well and plays well with touch or a controller. A bit easier than I remember, seems they’ve added some very forgiving auto-aim and maybe adjusted a few things to make it more mobile friendly. Currently the game does not support any Rockstar Social Club features on newer devices, which is a real shame and the only reason I didn’t 5-star it. This means stat tracking, achievements, and I think leaderboards on the Rockstar Social Club website are not functional I think after IPhone 6 and up.

    Club difficulties

    Gameplay is great, I have nothing but good things to say. However, when I go to sign onto the social club, it doesn’t allow me to continue further than putting in my information. A “Problem signing in” text pops up where I can’t advance further, other times it will send me to the website where if I successfully sign in I can’t get back to the game. Unfortunate, but not a major hindrance on the gameplay itself(aside from cheats). Great game otherwise.

    Update. iPhone X

    Update. iPhone X. Please Update the mobile controls for GTA. Gameloft’s Gangstar New Orleans & Las Vegas mobile games have the best mobile controls for auto aiming/auto targeting, shooting, and driving. Rockstar’s ported iOS versions of the GTA series should learn (and adopt) some of the ways of Gameloft’s Gangstar series because Gangstar has been especially optimized for mobile platforms.

    This game needs work.

    I normally don’t do reviews but this game is a huge disappointment nothing like the original version, when you play on anything higher than fugitive it’s not that the game is harder it just takes a whole clip to take down bad guys which wasn’t the case in the ps2 version the mechanics are wayyy off I mean it’s like the developers has no regard for how weapons operate you can shoot a character point blank with a shotgun and in the ps2 version dead but in this app forget about it, please fix this issue I mean who doesn’t die with a point blank shotgun let only 3.
