Goofs

In the mission "Buzzsaw", when Vito and Joe kill The Fat Man, as he falls to the ground, it is clearly shown that his hat falls off. However, when the cut-scene ends and returns to normal game-play, the hat is still on his head. See more »

Quotes

Henry Tomasino: If I don't make it...
Joe Barbaro: Hey, hey, don't go saying that, pal. It's just a scratch. The doc will give you a few stitches and then we'll all go out and celebrate.
Henry Tomasino: No, really...
Joe Barbaro: Shhh... you shouldn't talk right now. Helps conserve your strength. I saw that in a movie once.
Henry Tomasino: Yeah? And what happened to the guy in the movie?
Joe Barbaro: He died.

One of the best games I've played in quite a while
29 August 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Mafia 2 is just another GTA clone, that being said, I think it's a lot of fun. I'm going to split this review up in sections and work out an average score afterwards.

Gameplay- The game-play is great; the shoot-outs are very unique as you're required to take cover a lot and plan how you're going to tackle the gun fights as oppose to your typical video game shoot-out in which you just run out, kill 100 people and get shot 100 times and still live. In M2 you die after getting shot about 3/4 times making gun fights more realistic than a lot of other battles in other games. The car chases are also a lot of fun although there aren't actually that many, which may make the game better because this game never once get's repetitive. Most other sandbox games on the Xbox 360/ PS3 DO get repetitive somewhere down the line and they tend to seem to drag on such as Red dead redemption. Don't get me wrong RDR is a great game but the last 10 missions or so with the exception of the very last one were just boring and stale to be honest. Mafia 2 doesn't fail here though and that's definitely one of the best things about it. 9/10.

Graphics- Pretty good on the whole. I don't think the cut-scenes were as realistic as we expected but the city is great and it looks awesome and the cars look quite nice as well, nothing special, but quite nice. Another good thing about the graphics is the fact that there aren't that many glitches and bugs, there are a few but I didn't find them often. 8/10

Sound- Not much to say here but the sound's fantastic; Great voice acting, great SFX and an awesome 40's/ 50's soundtrack that makes you feel as if you actually live in that era. Can't fault it. 10/10

Length- This is the worst part; the game took me about 12 hours to complete and there's no side-missions or multi-player so the last mission is the end of it really and I couldn't help but feel cheated. 5/10

Average score 8/10

2K did a great job all in all and I definitely recommend this game unfortunately though it just doesn't last that long. That being said though there is some brand new DLC coming out which are entirely new games similar to GTA: The lost and damned, which hopefully will make this great experience a little longer.
