4.0 out of 5 stars A cut above the rest... for a while! 29 Aug. 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As a long-time fan of the original Mafia game, which I have played through numerous times, I had high expectations for the long-awaited sequel. I'd like to start off by saying I wasn't disappointed.

Graphically, Mafia 2 can boast some of the finest the Xbox 360 has seen to date. The new city, Empire Bay, is very atmospheric and bustling with life, as a fairly wide range of civilians window shop, commute and interact with one another. There are points in the game where you simply have to sit back and admire the level of detail that the developers have achieved, particularly the landscape views of the city. The cars accurately reflect the wear-and-tear that the player has made them endure, with the paintwork scratching, headlights smashing and windows cracking. Barring the odd graphical glitch, the game is a visual treat, with a wide range of textures which are never drab. The transition between the 40s and 50s is also very satisfying, as the cars, costumes and feel of the town dramatically change.

It is worth noting that the soundtrack to the game is fantastic - the music is varied and has a large catalogue of classic hits, and it is refreshing to hear voice acting pulled off how it should be; there are rarely cheesy moments in the dialogue and it is, more often than not, very humourous - particularly the exchanges between Vito and Joe.

A lot of reviews I have read particularly focussed on and criticised the fighting system. I personally didn't find too much wrong with it, barring the fact that it seems essential to stay in cover at all times otherwise you'll be backtracking to the last checkpoint, some of which can be incredibly frustratingly far back.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great game for a mature audience 29 Aug. 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Like the original Mafia this game is more suited to a mature audience, not a 14-year old with an attention span of 5 seconds. The car handling is better than most racing games (with simulation physics), the gunplay and cover system is fantastic (again better than most shooters), music is great (no hip-hop, just the good classics :P). The game is rather realistic so your character can't take too many bullets, another feature reviewers rated as a flaw.

Some reviews claimed this game has unskippable cutscenes, which is untrue. You need to press start to skip cutscenes.

This is not really an sandbox game like some have mistakenly believed, it's an action adventure which takes place in an open world. This means there isn't that much to do outside of story missions, but the game still clocks in at a reasonable 10 hours. Everything good has to come to an end, but at least in this game you don't need to go bowling every 10 minutes.

5.0 out of 5 stars A worthy successor 23 May 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As a fan of the original game, I can definitely say that I'm not disappointed by Mafia II. A lot of work has been put into the details - for example: if you rob a store, leave the area and then return 5 minutes later, you'll see the shopkeeper talking to a police officer, who will eventually recognize you with a rather dramatic "it's him, it's him" and instantly get you in trouble with the 5-0.

Bonus points on the epic reference to the original (you'll know what I'm talking about after playing both).

4.0 out of 5 stars Let Me Tell You a Story 25 Nov. 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
As the line between games and movies blurs, the importance of narrative increases. Graphics and memory are not quite up to the standard of photo realism, but they are easily good enough to show emotion, if the script is good enough. There will always be room in the games industry for good old fashioned classic gaming fun, but there is now a new era or story based gaming e.g. `Heavy Rain'. `Mafia 2' combines the story telling elements of `Heavy Rain', but maintains many of the gaming aspects of the likes of `Grand Theft Auto 4', can the two mix?

You play as Vito Scarletta, an Italian American criminal who goes from being a soldier into the Mafia, via jail. The game is set in an open world city that mimics early 1950s New York, but unlike many games in the genre there are not countless mini games to play. Developers 2KCzech have obviously spent a long time creating the story and ambience of the game and want people to stick to the core elements of the game. The city becomes a character and I found the moments of quiet between missions some of the best. Just driving around listening to a combination of the original recordings of music and banter between the characters. You really get a sense of the characters and period.

The immersion levels surprisingly drop when the game actually becomes more `gamey'. The shooting mechanics are adequate, but not fantastic, and the AI of the drivers chasing you has a lot to answer for. It was strange that the worst part of the game `Mafia 2' was the game element. The story, characters and atmosphere were enough to make me love the game. I could easily have played 10 hours or so just being in an interactive movie. With this in mind the game may not appeal to everyone, especially action fans. But for a gamer looking for something with a little more heart and a relaxed pace, they will love the game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Game 28 Oct. 2010
By DJ Hero
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
When GTA 3 came out on the ps2 it brought out the genre of the open world game giving you the options to explore liberty city at the time it was fantastic as there was nothing really like it, but its 2010 and that genre has been done to death there are a list of games which have ripped off the same concept and now its getting boring, if you want to explore the open world turn off your console and walk out the front door. Alot of the old school games had a simple level/boss model and that worked, in todays market the games give you so much option to do the fluff stuff when sometimes all you want to do is just play the game aka mafia 2 and progress through the missions which have an engaging story line, and with cut scenes you can actually be bothered to watch instead of skipping (gta take note...)

Mafia 2 is a quality game please ignore the reviews whinging "this isn't like gta blah blah.." they don' understand the underlining concept behind this game its not trying to be gta which has become lost in its own hype and has a host of copy cat games of significant poor quality fluffing up a poor story with pointless side missions taking up hours of wasted time.

This title has depth it, is a grown up game, it has amazing graphics and a great story line coupled with a linear mission level which is really engaging it was like watching the movie goodfellas put joining in.. The only gripe was the game was far too short. But games like this and Heavy Rain for example really take advantage of great graphics,gameplay and an engaging story line.

Overall 9/10 Great game but there are minor tweets for improvement for the next game.
