Rockstar bringing Payne to Xbox Live Originals

More On: Xbox Originals on Live
Xbox 360 owners who missed out on the Max Payne games on the original Xbox will be happy to know that Max Payne and Max Payne 2 are the latest Xbox Originals.  For 1200 MS points you can relive the adventures of NY detective Max Payne as he tries to clean up the streets of New York.  The series was notable for it's over wrought dialog and Noir themes as well as for it's fairly solid gameplay and engaging plots. 

I never played the first game but I highly recommend the second one if you're looking for a decent shooter.  The game does some interesting things with the genre and the dialog is fairly unique.  It's also one of those games that does a good job of earnings it's M rating.
