Lots of graphic sexual references and phrases

This is definitely not suitable game for young kids

In the Second Chapter, You go over to Joe's apartment. There Joe shows an obscene gesture towards a very elderly woman. When inside, we also see two young women wearing bra. One is wearing panties and the buttocks and genitals of the other woman is visible

You can collect playboy magazines which contain actual pictures from real playboy magazines which contain very graphic close ups of breasts, buttocks, and genitalia

A man receives a blow job at a strip club which is very graphic; it is very much implied with no nudity however he puts his hand on the woman's head and orgasms, this is much more obvious to a mature gamer


This game is set in a 1940/1950's setting, so the world is openly available, violence isnt frowned upon in this game, but it isnt encouraged.

You can randomly shoot innocent people in the street which shows them begging for mercy and pools of blood

The scenes of graphic violence are disturbing. Henry is brutally murdered and is screaming while people hack him to death with meat cleavers


448 Uses of f**k and it's derivatives. About 150-175 uses of s**t, as well as dozens of uses of b**ch, b***ard, a*shole and cunt is used 12 times

NOTE That racist terms such as "Ch*nk" and "N*gger" are used many times throughout as well, this game is set in the 1940's and 1950's. Racism was openly used in those times, and it used very frequently in the game

** Most, probably 75% of the profanity comes from one character, who is very important within the game, and he is in almost every mission. **


There is constant heavy drinking throughout. In one scene two men are very heavily intoxicated.

The ability to not play the mission is possible, in which case there are several bars available where you can openly get drunk at. Different alcohols in the game contain stronger kicks. Example: Whiskey is the strongest.

Vito and Joe deal cigarrettes and people are seen smoking.

Some mobsters deal Heroin in the game, and there is a scene of a man tasting it to make sure it's good before selling it.


Very mature themes

Mafia 2 is a very violent game and is definitely not recommended for young teenagers under the age of 16. If it wasn't for the nudity and sexual content, most probably suitable for around 12-15 year old teens.

Henry is mutilated by a triad gang while screaming in terror on the ground. This is quite frightening and intense. He can also be hard gargling after Joe and Vito shoot at the triads causing them to run away.

If Mafia 2 (2010) was a movie, it would be R: For Strong Brutal Violence, Pervasive Language Throughout, Alcohol and Drug Use, Brief Graphic Nudity, Mature Thematic Material, and a Scene Depicting Strong Sexual Content

BBFC rating (UK): 18 for very strong language and strong violence.
