The GTA series might be a good one for you.

If you have a high end computer I would reccomend F.E.A.R.

:agreed Fear, however, is an FPS instead of a TPS and has an entirely different type of plot from the Max Payne and GTA series.

You might try the Truecrime series; the last one of those I played was Streets of L.A. It doesn't take an exceptional amount of PC power, but it was fun nevertheless--most comparable to GTA 3 forward, except that you're an undercover cop.

The Hitman series are similar to Max Payne (well, Max Payne 2 anyway - 'out for revenge'). If it's bullet time you love then there are a few Matrix games, but they are terrible and bugged to hell.

It really depends on your PC - if it is really good, then your possibilities are huge. If it's quite old, I'd stick to the non-FPS games.

If you can find it, Dead to Rights is OK. The story and gameplay are very similar to Max Payne.

In Dead to Rights you play a cop framed, imprisoned, escaped, and avenging your father's death, whom also was a cop. It is 3rd person, there is slow mo, and you have a Malmute dog called Shadow you can sick on ememies when you are surrounded and trying to save ammo.

One of the most unique thngs about Dead to Rights are the many hand to hand disarm moves you can pull off, by hitting combinations of the WASD keys. You are not told what those combinations are, or even what the disarms are, you have to find them by trial and error. You are notified when you find them on screen after seeing your character disarm the enemy with one of several complex moves shown in slow mo, usually resulting in his shooting the enemy with their own gun in the process. The game at that point tells you what the move is called, and what key combination is used, storing it in your unlocked disarms list.

There is also hand to hand combat you can use other than disarms, including punches and kicks.

DTR has some very unique and challenging puzzles, everything from disarming bombs, to playing a stripper friend of the main character to distract thugs while he slips by in one nightclub scene. Most of the game is good old shooter action, but you have to be wise about how you go about it.

Overall Dead to Rights is harder to play than Max Payne, and be forewarned, there are no cheats for it. It's also a bit less forgiving with the 3rd person camera going crazy when you're near walls, possibly due to it having been ported over from console format. The game is definately worth buying though, especially at the price you'll find it at, if you CAN find it.

After having played Dead to Rights, and now Enter the Matrix, I can tell you I prefer Dead to Rights by far.

Dead to Rights is alright, but controlling the game is pretty difficult. I have that game, and I played it for a while, and then decided to wait until I get a game controller. Enter the matrix isn't such a great game, so I would recommend Hitman, True Crime, and Dead to Rights (if you have a controller).

That reminds me--The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay

It is without question the best game I've played (and many others have played) that's based on a movie(s). It is an FPS whose graphics quality actually beats Doom 3 though, so you would need a fairly powerful PC, or a graphics card at least.

Ironic that you should mention that, because after reinstalling Dead to Rights just now and playing it after having shelved it for a while, it does remind me of Butcher Bay too, as far as the prison scenes go.

You're right Chandu, it is a bit hard to control it, as I was trying to indicate by the camera angle thing. In porting a console game to PC, you often wind up with something that is more akin to those that like controlers.

I suck at controlers, and find aiming with mouse more intuitive, but this game could be different, as you use the auto aim a lot.

I'm already being reminded of some of the difficult challenges in the game, such as the speed bag challenge in the gym, where you have to hit it 150 times in two minutes.

When I played it before, I never got past the fight with Diggs. The camera angle being from a side view was too disorienting for me to manuever the WASD keys fast enough to beat him.

Chandu, if you have a savegame of the level following the fight in the gas chamber with Raffoon Diggs, I'd much appreciate it. I looked everywhere for a way to bypass that part, and had no luck.
