Mafia II

 

Welcome to Empire Bay

Audio really sets the 1940’s and 1950's scenes beautifully. Interesting main story and cut-scenes

Not much need to divert from the main story path. Occasional graphical glitches

There is a lot to do in Empire Bay and the city is fairly large. Indeed, unless you feel like training for the Boston marathon, you will be doing plenty of driving. Whether you are going home, visiting Joe, or heading to your next mission, there will...

Mafia II Featurette: The 50s And Beyond

 

We take a call with 2K's Jack Scalici about Mafia II's design, authenticity, and the future of the franchise.

We got the chance to sit in on a developer call today with an assortment of game journalists, all listening to hear what 2K's director of creative production Jack Scalici had to say about Mafia II.

Mafia II hands-on preview

 

A hands-on demo with Mafia II proves it's just as much fun to be a bad mobster errand boy as it is to be an actual mobster. To get the big picture out of the way, Mafia II is a story-driven title. It's set in an open-world ‘50s sandbox called Empire...

Actually, it is for Nothing

Eddie and Joe singing along drunkenly to "Return to me" in the car

The preceding half-hour, during which they vomit constantly

There is a trace of a worthwhile game here, one that emphasized the drudgery and tedium of organized crime, which would have played out in beautiful irony against Vito's fantasies of an exciting life, money, and power. That game might not have been any...

Mafia II's exciting action and uncompromising mob story make for an impressive and violent adventure.

Fantastic action set pieces ; Shooting and hand-to-hand combat are both highly satisfying ; Empire City is beautiful and stuffed with period detail ; Brutal, involving story populated with interesting, well-acted characters

Not enough to do in the open world ; Too much time spent on mundane tasks

Mafia II is an excellent return of a franchise with great promise. Vito and his associates are memorable characters in a city bursting with subtle visual details and violent undertones. The story pulls no punches, neither glorifying nor demeaning the...

Luke tries to become a made man by completing some questionable "jobs" within the city of Mafia II

Amazing looking environments- Great story and cinematic - Fantastic characters ; Controls handle well

The brief change in gameplay around the middle section misses its step

Mafia II delivers a hard hitting story by presenting interesting characters that you really get to know through an emotional connection. The surroundings within Empire Bay fill the world with so much detail giving the player a sense of life within the...

Mafia II PC Review

 

Any open world sandbox game faces stiff competition in what has become a popular, but crowded genre. With titles like Grand Theft Auto IV, Saints Row 2, Red Dead Redemption and Crackdown all selling extremely well, it must be an intimidating prospect...

Engaging, classic Mafia-style story ; Some unusual and intense missions ; Good selection of different vehicles

Very little replay value ; Missions lack variety ; No side missions or mini-games to add diversity

Mafia II

 

You'd be a fool to doubt 2K Czech's intentions coming into Mafia II; as if they weren't going to deliver a wholly entertaining, bloody and brutal experience as the one that expounds from this, the follow up to Illusion Software's 2002 original. So...

It’s barely the open-ended Mafia game that many were expecting, or indeed hoping for, but then it needn’t be: Mafia II is of a quality that matches that of GTA and its rivals without the need for illogical side-missions. Each element of the game works...

Mafia II (PC)

 

The game's got superb graphics, gameplay mechanics and a solid story, but it ends too abruptly

Good graphics, cover system works well, scalable engine, engaging story, authentic 1940-50s atmosphere, missions are tense and action-packed

Story mode is short and incomplete, turning on APEX Physics hampers performance badly
