Mafia 2: The 40-50's all over again.

GoldenNGuN | April 16, 2011 | Review of Mafia II dns

Mafia 2 is a third-person action-adventure game. It is set in the 40-50's in a city called Empire Bay. The city is ruled by 3 families: Vinci family, Falcone family and Clemente family. The story is about Joe and Vito. Vito fought the war against the Italians in World War II. But when he comes back from his duty Joe is already waiting for him to make trouble again.

The story is great! I really think it's the best story in a game so far. Joe and Vito are also great characters to play with. They all have there interesting backgrounds. Also there are numerous cars found in Empire Bay that are all perfectly designed. They all control very different. The guns in the game are typical 1940-50 weapons. From a Thompson 1928 to a Mauser C96.

There is just one point where it goes wrong. There is not much to do in the city itself when you've done all chapters. You can collect Playboys, visit clothing or gun shops or you can have some fun with the police. But that's all there is to do after the chapters. But don't get me wrong, it's still a great game.

Mafia 2 is a great game with 8-10 hours of fun. I can really recommend this to all the players who like a great story mixed with action-adventure. The ones who only like the free-roaming, you can better play a different game.
