There are 22 chapters, 3 prologues, a tutorial, and one bonus level in Max Payne for the PC, while the PlayStation 2, PlayStation 4 and Xbox versions of the game have most of the PC version's chapters split into several sub-chapters.
Max Payne’s bullet time ability is a metagenic response to the superspeed of the Valkyr users who attacked him and killed his family. Max might have encountered a number of superheroes in the course of his DEA work.
The prologue of A Cold Day in Hell is the second prologue in Max Payne.
After killing Jack Lupino, Max meets Mona Sax, who proposes that they should work together in taking down Don Punchinello, explaining to Max that Punchinello was the one who ordered Alex Balder to be killed and set Payne up to take the fall for it. Max reluctantly agrees to work with her, following her to the bar and drinking with her.
She ends up drugging him with the alcohol, mentioning that he is a liability and to prevent her sister from getting in Max's crossfire. Max begins to have a nightmare about the night his wife and daughter died, trying to find them through a maze of corridors and following his wife's voice. As Max continues through a nightmarish landscape in his dreams, flashes of reality fade through, revealing that Max is being held captive by someone.

Max Payne is a 2001 third-person shooter video game developed by Remedy Entertainment and published by Gathering of Developers. The game centers on former NYPD detective Max Payne, who attempts to solve the murder of his family while investigating a drug trafficking case involving a mysterious new designer drug called “Valkyr”. While doing so, Max becomes entangled in a large and complex conspiracy, involving a major pharmaceutical company, organized crime, a secret society, and the U.S. military.
The game features a gritty neo-noir style and uses graphic novel panels (with voice-overs) as the primary means of telling the game’s story, drawing inspiration from hard-boiled detective novels by authors like Mickey Spillane. The game contains many allusions to Norse mythology, particularly the myth of Ragnarök, and several of the names used in the game are allusions to Norse mythology. The gameplay is heavily influenced by the Hong Kong action cinema genre, particularly the work of director John Woo, and it was one of the first games to feature the bullet-time effect popularized by The Matrix.
The player assumes the role of the titular character, with gameplay revolving around the use of the bullet time mechanic during firefights – when triggered, time is slowed down to such an extent that the speed at which bullets and other projectiles move is slow enough to be seen by the naked eye. Although Max’s movement is also slowed, the player is still able to move and react in real-time, allowing them more time to plan and react to enemies. Max Payne (James McCaffrey) is a former NYPD officer-turned-DEA agent whose wife Michelle (Haviland Morris) and newborn daughter Rose were murdered by armed junkies that were high on a new designer drug called Valkyr.
In 2001, three years after their deaths, Max works undercover within the Punchinello Mafia family, who control the trafficking of Valkyr. His DEA colleague, B.B. (Adam Grupper), arranges a meeting between Max and his friend and former colleague, Alex Balder (Chris Phillips), in a subway station. While waiting for Alex, Max accidentally gets in a shootout with mobsters working for Punchinello underboss Jack Lupino (Jeff Gurner), who are staging a bank robbery through an abandoned part of the subway. When Alex arrives, he is killed by an unseen assassin, who frames Max for the murder.
