  1. If you missed out on the slow motion craze a couple of years ago, then this might be the game for you to pick. On second thought, just try to find "Max Payne." The poor execution to the game is where the real harm is in Made Man.
  2. In general, Made Man: Confessions of the Family Blood is a marginally passable offering, something to play if you've drained every last bit of enjoyment out of Max Payne and absolutely can't find anything else to play.
  3. The difficulty level here fluctuates more than the NYSE, with some enemies being as effective as 2 year olds while others could put an eye out from a half mile away.
  4. Only the "boss" encounters with the persistent helicopter provide anything even bordering on memorable, leaving a sloppy, completely unremarkable and tired shooter that's better left on the shop shelves.

    Inspired by true events, with a storyline developed by Mafia expert David Fisher, Made Man is simply a woefully slipshod product. [June 2007, p.86]

    Main Man can only be recommended if you enjoy to run around and shoot things for no real reason, and there are countless other games that do better without the annoyances that accompany this stereotypical title. [Dec 2006, p.127]
  7. From its buggy, intensely frustrating gameplay to its near-absent production values, Made Man is a flat-out mess across every category.

    Made Man's combat is as boring as daytime television, and all you do is fight.
  9. 20
    It never becomes fun. It looks awful and sounds even worse. It could almost be recommended ironically as a game so bad that it's entertaining or as a basis for some sick drinking game (take a shot every time an enemy gets stuck on a corner), but it's even too bland for that.
