The Xbox Originals release of Max Payne was delisted from Xbox 360 in February of 2019 according to reporting from TrueAchievements.com. The reason for its removal is uncertain; it could be tied to licensing of the Xbox platform, changes in ownership of the Max Payne property, or seemingly most likely, changes in the structure of Xbox.com and support for older disc-based releases (Xbox Originals and Games on Demand titles).
About the Game
“Max Payne is a man with nothing to lose in the violent, cold urban night. A fugitive undercover cop framed for murder, hunted by cops and the mob, Max is a man with his back against the wall, fighting a battle he cannot hope to win. Max Payne is a relentless story-driven game about a man on the edge, fighting to clear his name while struggling to uncover the truth about his slain family amongst a myriad of plot-twists and twisted thugs in the gritty bowels of New York during the century’s worst blizzard.
The groundbreaking original cinematic action-shooter, Max Payne introduced the concept of Bullet Time® in videogames. Through its stylish slow-motion gunplay combined with a dark and twisted story, Max Payne redefined the action-shooter genre.“
