Rockstar Games’ classic third-person bullet-time shooter, Max Payne is now available for iPad in the New Zealand store. That means it should be hitting stateside within the next several hours.
The game is optimized for the Retina display of the iPhone 4, iPhone 4S and new iPad. It’s crazy to think that this was once a console and PC game that pushed the limits of the hardware at the time. Now it’s playable on a phone. Sorry, we’re just making ourselves feel old again. We still think some of the textures look cool. Sure it’s nothing fancy by today’s standards, but taking into consideration when it was made, it’s not bad looking at all. Give it the Retina makeover, and it’s even cooler.
It’s a universal app and should be playable on the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch (4th gen) and all three iPad models.
We will update with a link when it becomes available stateside.
