When the radio reporter talks about the British bombing a Nazi factory, he states that the British anthem is "God Save the Queen", however God Save the Queen did not become the anthem until 1952 when Queen Elizabeth II was made Queen. In 1945 it still would have been "God Save the King" as her father, King George VI was still King. See more »

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.
