Mafia II DLC Pack: A better dealAzrael360 | Feb. 6, 2014 | See all Azrael360's reviews »
The DLCs for Mafia II are better to get in a pack like this with a lower price. Buying them separately is not recommended, since they do not add much content to the main game by themselves and it would be expensive.
In this pack, starting from the lowest value delivered by its DLCs, you will find some nice clothes that you can use from the beginning of the game, with an unique designs that you won't find in the base game, like the military suits or the more "modern" Vegas style suits, but these are just cosmetics and not really useful. Then there are the cars. These also are unique and not found in the game, like the Hot Rods. And just like the clothes, you will have access to them once you get access to your garage for the first time from the start, which by the way is extremely useful, especially with the fastest cars, like the great cars found in the Renegade DLC.
But new content to play is always more preferable, and this can be found in the Jimmy's Vendetta DLC and Joe's Adventure DLC. Jimmy's Vendetta offers a more "arcade" approach to Mafia II following the story of Jimmy, the mercenary from The Betrayal Of Jimmy DLC, with missions through the city against time and earning points, doing some generic missions, like killing someone or transporting something in the fastest way possible. Jimmy is not a likeable character and some missions can be really frustrating, so once you finish that DLC you will probably not play Jimmy's Vendetta again. But the star of the pack is Joe's Adventure, the DLC starring the best friend of Vito: Joe. Offering a similar approach like its predecessor, Joe's Adventure is filled with missions around the city and some of them has also a timer, but Joe is Joe, and you will have fun playing as him.
Although, both story DLCs share similar aspects and gameplay, including the classic sandbox gameplay of reaching a point to activate a mission, the main difference between them is while Jimmy's Vendetta is not connected at all with the main story of Mafia II, Joe's Adventure is, and it's set during an special time in the main game and after an important event in Vito's life in the late 40's and early 50's, starting with a great mission that fills a gap in the story of Mafia II.
If you really enjoyed Mafia II, you should consider this pack. It will be worth it, for the right price.
Must-buy for Mafia hardcore fansKordas | Dec. 13, 2013 | See all Kordas's reviews »
If you are a hardcore fan of Mafia II and didn't come around to play its DLC, this pack is your opportunity! It includes hours of new gameplay, and some new vehicles and outfits. While most of them (excluding Joe's Adventure) aren't really good enough to buy them, they are really great to purchase together. And although 30 dollars is a little too much, when it's on discount, grab it, cause it's really good!

This package contains all the DLCs that are available, depending on your region, for Mafia 2. If you enjoyed the story and gameplay of Mafia 2 and wants to get more story content out of it then grab this all in one package. While not all of the DLCs are story based DLC the other 4 DLCs will get you vehicles and clothings to further customize your game with unique looks. The other 2 DLCs talks about the story of Joe and Jimmy in their view of the game. Definitely a great package to pick up if you already own the game.
