Mafia II is a seriously underrated game which perfectly captures the era of the early 20th century. Everything from the architectural design to the cars, clothing and music is taken into consideration with care and attention to detail better than any other open world game released to date. The downside to this is that while the open world feels very realistic, you cannot do much in it and it serves more as a backdrop to the story rather than a sandbox fun environment like a GTA game would. The story is cliche but amazing telling the story of the rise of an Immigrant going through the ranks of the mafia. I will not spoil it but you feel very attached to all the characters throughout the game and a lot of events are very impactful. Overall this is a very good game and is sadly overlooked for some reason. Do not expect to play it like a GTA game and you will have a lot of enjoyment out of it.
Mafia 2 is in my book, hands down the greatest game of all time(So far). Immediately you get sucked into the timezone of which the main character Vito Scaletta is placed. You will go through a great story whilst doing amazing, crazy, funny and violent missions. You will not regret buying this game!
Such a great game, Mafia II itself is pretty good and I love the era it is set in. It's got a great story, some cool characters, it's expansive, and fun to play. The controls are a little wobbly however, and for every cool character there are two dull stereotypes. it's still plenty of fun, however it does have some flaws such as you need to buy dlc to find out what happens to a particular character.
Mafia II is a great story driven open world game that, however, has quite some downsides as well. I will start with the best part of the game - its atmosphere. The game hits the nail on the head while recreating the 50s atmosphere - the music is perfect, the cars, the clothes and style of the whole city is right on point. The life of the Mafia is illustrated fantasticly well. The soundtrack of the game is amazing, the graphics are nice and the voice acting is great. The story of the game is decent, but where the game falls short is the gameplay. The city lacks detail and there is barely anything to do in the open world of Mafia II. The shooting and the driving are enjoyable but become a little bit repetitive with time. if you are looking for a huge open world game with lots of replay value and detail, you wouldn't enjoy Mafia II as much. However, If you love a great story that recreates the 50s perfectly, I would recommend Mafia II to you for sure.
This game was fun when it was new, but coming back to try to play the game now just feels off. The story is great, but the bugs in the game make it almost impossible to enjoy. If you never have played this game and can tolerate the city randomly going into screen haywire and completely blank...then by all means give it a go. I would suggest you hold off for mafia 3 though.
