Trivia

In the mission "Buzzsaw", Joe made a comment about Vito being able to heal so quickly while they were on their way to send Henry to El Greco. This is a clear reference to the game's regenerating health system, which brings a player's health back to normal despite being hit by bullets several times. See more »

Goofs

The game starts in 1945 and ends in 1951. Playboy magazine, one of the collectibles, wasn't founded until 1953. See more »

It's not bad, it's just too limited
5 September 2012 | by (Latvia) – See all my reviews

People anticipated this game for a long time. Release about 8 years later got quite a lot of hopes up for many improvements and new kind of mafia experience.

The truth turned out quite different. I'm saying now - this game is by no means bad, seven is a decent score as well.

The introduction of characters were very good, the main one soon became very likable. A proper game play tutorial was also very good and you could get used to things very easily.

The story is also very good, with its twists and emotional moments, as much as hardcore action and reflection of gangster life. A possibility to rob stores and bribe the police added a nice feeling to the whole package. Bunch of people complained about the driving being too difficult and chaotic, but in fact it's actually a nice change from the arcady thing that's been going on for like, forever... The gun play felt really powerful, the cover system was good - not perfect, but in fact quite decent. The voice acting was great, though the game has strong language (if anyone is worried about that).

But there were also many issues with the game. Overall game play was too short, a pair of extra missions wouldn't have harmed anyone. All the money you earned couldn't be spent, cause you could easily rob stores and get free stuff (if you pleased). There were promotional videos about the game and cuttings to show what it would look like, but much of the stuff was cut from the final version, leaving many people (me involved) dissatisfied. Most of this stuff was side-missions - even in the first game there was something you could do aside from the main objectives, and this game just screamed for extra activities.

Also, the chapter idea lost the feeling of free roam, cause player is attached to the main story line. After your objective is completed, there just isn't anything else to do.

Overall it is a decent game 7/10, but it just lacks side-missions/activities which prevents me from giving it a higher score...
