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. See more »

The best video game I've ever played!
19 April 2015 | by Sindad_VZSee all my reviews

Mafia 2 is probably the best video game I've ever played. I was a great fan of Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven and it remains one of the best games ever made. But yet, in comparison, despite many people or critics, I found this one far more perfect. The game will still be great if you haven't played the first one, but if you have, you will make the best of it.

Something that amazed me in this game was the perfect story full of unexpected surprises. The Gameplay was also good along the rest of the game, but considering only the Gameplay, it may not the best video game for me. The visuals are also outstanding.

It doesn't make sense to me to see people compare this to games such as Grand Theft Auto. GTA series are fun, but mafia and GTA are separate worlds. Mafia is not a type of game that you play for hours and hours and yet every chapter is the repetition of the previous one. Looking for a game like that, you may find this too short or limited.

No vote less than ten will satisfy me about this one.
