Mafia 2

 

Keeping it in the family. Let me start off this review by saying I am a sucker for a good crime drama. Games like this need to have a lot...

Amazing Story ; Well crafted city ; Fun gunplay ; Great atmosphere

Minor technical hiccups ; Some gameplay is not fine tuned ; Several clichés in the storytelling ; Can’t free roam between missions

Mafia II Review

 

Given pop-culture's obsession with a romanticized notion of organized crime, it's shocking we don't see more games based on the subject matter. But outside of the Godfather titles and a handful of others, there's just not that many opportunities for...

When I stated fans of mob dramas would enjoy this game, I meant exactly that; even if you rarely pick up a gamepad, but love a good mob-themed tale, Mafia II is worth checking out. This is a testament to its superb storytelling and spotless production...

Mafia 2 Review

 

Games based around the infamous mobsters of the 1940s are few and far between, in fact there's really only one or two I can think of, the first being the original game in the Mafia series by 2K. After almost eight years, 2K is finally releasing a...

Metropolis’ structures and contents will sit well with anyone who has enjoyed Mad Men in the slightest. The characters especially the Lead Vito and Joe look like two Italian gangsters and they have the voice actors to back it. On top of all this, the...

If I remember correctly, Mafia 2 has been lurking around game conventions and press events over three years back. To put it another way, they certainly took their time with this one. Naturally, it felt like expectations grew with each passing year,...

A good shooter, solid car physics makes driving enjoyable, nice atmosphere and great visuals, a whole range of interesting characters to meet, well-directed cut-scenes and superb voice-overs

Gameplay soon becomes generic, while the story is short and lacks punch, no multiplayer

Mafia 2- Xbox 360

 

He's your typical neighbourhood thug, as demonstrated in a recent trailer by Vito dismissing his mother with ‘Jesus Christ!' while they're both queuing to use the confessional like some sort of sin-purging portapotty. As we're familiar with now, it's...

There are plenty of promising ideas being crammed in, to be sure, and if Mafia 2 is a little more structurally focussed than its predecessor and takes more advantage of Xbox hardware – and if these shots are anything to go by, it certainly does the...

Mafia 2 Review

 

Mafia II is a very enjoyable experience for different reasons than most games, which should be a warning to those of you who don't really dig story in games, or lengthy narrative, or act as an invitation for gamers craving something more to bite their...

Lengthy, deep narrative that spans a full decade; Excellent recreation of the era; Living, breathing city makes for a unique background in this kind of game; Driving is excellent and cars have been handled spectacularly

Fairly linear overall; Side missions or activities lack compelling reasons to engage; Too many characters to explore, not enough time
