Anachronisms 

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

Although set in the time frame of 1945-1951, the cars in the game are fitted with intermittent windscreen wipers which were not invented until 1963.

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.

The game is set in the 1940s and finishes in 1951. Most of the songs on the radio, like the music of Ritchie Valens and Buddy Holly, did not come out until much later in the 1950s.

The second half of the story line is set in 1952 but many of the cars seen are made after 1952. The "Smith Thunderbolt", for example, is actually a 1955 Ford Thunderbird.

Continuity 

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.

Factual errors 

In chapter 3, Vito gets mad that Derrek is only going to pay him $10 to load a box of crates. In 1945, when this mission takes place, minimum wage was only 40 cents an hour, so $10 to just to load some boxes into a truck would actually be very good pay.

Spoilers 

The goof items below may give away important plot points.

Continuity 

At the end of Mafia 1, Tommy Angelo is killed with a Lupara; a double barreled sawed of shotgun. In this game Tommy Angelo is killed with a pump action shotgun. It's meant to be the same scene.

Factual errors 

When Vito is captured by police and sent to Sicily to fight in Operation Husky, he states he was in the 504th Parachute Infantry Regiment. This is correct as the 504th and 505th fought in this campaign (both were part of the 82nd Airborne). But if you purchase the "War Hero" DLC and put on the service dress uniform, on his left shoulder patch is the "Screaming Eagle" which was the 101st Airborne insignia. It should have been a "AA" style patch for the 82nd Airborne.
