Microsoft has added Max Payne 1 & 2 to Xbox Live Originals.

These old retro gems cost 1200 Microsoft Points (GBP 10.20 / EUR 14.40) a piece.

Max Payne was ported to Xbox in 2002 and wasn't very good - not nearly as slick as the PC original. Max Payne 2 on Xbox, however, was much better.

The series was created by Remedy Entertainment and follows the actions of sulky hero Max Payne. This was famously one of the first games to incorporate bullet time.

Last year, Mark Wahlberg starred in a movie adaptation of Max Payne that was critically panned and left with a Metacritic average of 31 per cent.

Even more recently, Rockstar announced a third Max Payne game was in development at Rockstar Vancouver and will be released for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 this year.
