El Paso, Elsewhere is a Max Payne inspired neo-noir third person shooter where a pill-popping protagonist hunts down his vampire ex-girlfriend.
Heavily inspired by the first Max Payne games, El Paso, Elsewhere sees a hard-boiled gunslinger fighting his way through a reality-shifting motel filled with monsters. It seems your Ex is a vampire who’s planning to perform a ritual that could have catastrophic consequences for the world. It looks like you’re the only one who can stop her.
The core gameplay in El Paso, Elsewhere is pretty much the same as Max Payne. You can run, gun, dive and roll, and you can enter bullet-time for some stylish slow-mo carnage. The reality-shifting level design and the supernatural monsters do add a unique touch though.
It clearly borrows a lot from Max Payne, but considering it’s been 11 years since the last Max Payne game, it’s about time somebody did. There’s a lot to like too – the guns feel great, the level design is fun and bullet-time diving is as cool as ever. Also, the voice acting and cut-scenes are superb. Max would be proud.
