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.

The add-on surprised me very early on. We have the opportunity to play Joe, and to watch what he was doing while Vito was behind the bars. And the pros ends there. Repeatedly painful missions, lots of bugs. There was potential in the main idea but this sadly failed in the development stage. Mafia II is a great game and it is natural to feel a bit of hunger when you finally finish it but all the main story DLC are rather weak. Only get them on a big sale.
This one really gives another perspective to the main game, and makes it even more painful in my opinion. The action is a little easier this time, or maybe I just git used to the controls..i Don't know, anyway, i don't think I ever died During this adventure. Unlike most DLC, this one didn't feel short at all. I couldn't tell, how long it took me to beat it, but it seemed a lot of time. Anyway, maffia 2 is a great game, so if you liked it, this can really elongate the experience.
Joe's Adventure addon for Mafia II is the best DLC the developers have made for the game by now, since it contains new quests and lets you play as Joe Barbaro, the best friend from Vito, your main character, which is a unique experience for the players of the game. The company has made bad addons for the game, but this one is excellent, since it has new and different stuff added to the game. Anyway, I do recommend this to the players of Mafia II, since it gives you a new story and the ability to play as other character, which is great in my opinion. I think this is worth every penny!
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.
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.
