Mafia II DLC: Joe's Adventure
Third party DRM: SteamThis game requires a free Steam account to play.
This content requires the base game Mafia II on Steam in order to play.
Joe’s Adventures continues the prodigious crime drama of Mafia II through the eyes of Joe Barbaro, Vito Scaletta’s best friend, during the time that Vito spends in prison. The game add-on extends the original narrative of Mafia II by combining a dramatic storyline with intense arcade-style gameplay that opens up several new areas in Empire Bay and items for players to get their hands dirty with.
Impulsive and unpredictable, Joe Barbaro has been at Vito’s side since childhood. That is, until Vito gets caught and sent to prison. In Joe’s Adventures, Joe uncovers the truth behind Vito’s prison sentence and what’s really going on in the Clemente family.
Joe’s Adventures offers an engaging narrative and allows players to explore new locations, including a train station, the cathouse, a boat yard, a seasonally changing lakefront and some never-before-seen buildings in Empire Bay. This exciting new chapter in the Mafia II saga includes new clothing, collectibles and even more classic 40’s and 50’s music. In addition to the story-based missions, Joe’s Adventures opens up a slew of optional city-based quests packed with arcade action gameplay and a points-based system that allows players to move up the ranks on the online leaderboard through combos and multiplier bonuses. Deadly executions by head shot or charged explosives rack up points, and precision-timed vehicular power slides, lofty jumps and feats of supercharged speed maintain the adrenaline-charged fun for extensive replayability.
Definitely the best DLC for Mafia IIKordas | Dec. 13, 2013 | See all Kordas's reviews »
DLC's for Mafia II were no success, really. They all were rather weak and not worth spending money for. This is really the only one that I can recommend. In some areas it even surpasses the main game. Maybe not in terms of story, but definitely in terms of variability of gameplay. There are stealth missions, chasing missions but it's a tip of the iceberg really. I also like the fact that the game counts your score for each mission: it's really easy to go back to a mission and play it one again to try to beat the score. Joe is definitely great character and it's great to play as him.
One of the best dlcs ever releaseddarkmajki | Dec. 5, 2012 | See all darkmajki's reviews »
Joe Adventures is one of the best DLC ever released. You take the role as Joe, Vito's best friend. Although it was supposed to be Mafia 2 from Joe's view it only features one mission that is connected with the main story from Mafia 2, but that won't stop you from fully enjoying this dlc. It features some pretty hard and interesting missions, new fight moves and new clothes for Joe and it has pretty long gametime(at least for a dlc) which will last atleast 8 hours. I heartly suggest this.

You would expect this DLC to be fairly bad, as the other cosmetic ones are bad, and even this one didn't get that good reviews. Well I found it pretty good. Joe's adventure adds a couple of fun car missions, shoot-guy missions, and stealth missions. What I loved is that they are as good as those found in the main game, but don't really add all that much. If you finished the game, liked it and want more, this is a great deal.
Not so bad after allsYncz | Sept. 15, 2012 | See all sYncz's reviews »
This dlc will let you see the world from Joe's perspective, unfortunately the extension to main story is a rather short one and will be over in less than an hour. In addition you get many arcade style missions where you can try your best and compete for top spots on leader boards, so it's not so short after all. Also there are some new areas waiting to get explored.

Joe Adventure is a good DLC for Mafia 2. There are many side mission with a timer like in the first DLC but there are also story missions like in the main game. This DLC allow you to understand better the story of the game and of some characters because it's related to Joe activities while Vito was in prison. The gameplay is the same of the main game and of other DLC and allow you to play 4-5 more hours with the best character of the game,Joe
