Trivia

Lincoln is able to use small firearms with either his left or right hand. According to Haden Blackman, the developers discovered in their research of the time that soldiers in Vietnam were taught to shoot with both hands so that they would never be at a disadvantage. Lincoln's ambidexterity is a result of his military training. See more »

Nothing in this world is Perfect!
5 November 2018 | by kghosh13See all my reviews

The game is full of annoying glitches and flaws. But that does not make it any less enjoyable. It is better than playing a game which is flawless yet not enjoyable.

Honestly I have not played GTA V and not played Mafia 2. However, I loved Mafia 1 and that was the sole reason I purchased this one. I am not disappointed at all. In fact its a pretty good game with a good revenge story. The characterization could be better though. The game mechanics are awesome and driving is really a lot of fun. Shooting and fist fights are quite enjoyable. In fact it is a much better game in recent times wherein the makers have kept the game fun. Who cares if the graphics dont leave you spellbound. There is a complaint that the game is a bit repetitive. Agreed. But its so much fun.

Read a lot of negative reviews here, there and everywhere and I dont understand what are their expectations from a game. Is this because its heartbreaking to see how the African origins were treated in the late 60s in America? In my opinion that was needed to build the character of Lincoln. The background music is all 50s and 60s songs and amazing. There is a takedown of a mobster in an amusement park which pans out marvelously. There is a similar takedown inside a hotel again brilliant. There are a few more enjoyable takedowns in the game. But the most enjoyable part for me was the KKK shootout. Never completed a part of any game, I can remember, with more satisfaction.

A good tip for you : "Ignore the criticism and enjoy the game"
