Why They And Their Games Rock

  1. They're best known for developing Max Payne and Alan Wake, which they're pretty good.
  2. Their games are pretty fun, challenging and have good plots.
  3. They established bullet time as a game mechanic.
  4. Sami Järvi AKA Sam Lake, is well adored by the Max Payne fanbase thanks to his famous "Constipated Grimace" and well known as the main protagonist's definitive face model. Even his poem inspired "Late Goodbye " by Poets Of The Fall, which was also featured in the sequel.
  5. Great soundtracks, especially in Max Payne with its sequel.
  6. They managed to make Max Payne 2's visuals look good before the release of Valve Software's Half-Life 2.
  7. Their games have a lot of well done psychological elements.

Bad Qualities
