Brilliant shoot-outs are dulled by maddening side missions in this inconsistent add-on.

GameSpot

  • Summary: It's good to see Mafia II's Joe Barbaro again; it's just too bad this add-on isn't worthy of the character. Mafia II: Joe's Adventures does have its shining moments, however. Multiple story-based missions are electrifying and recall some of the main game's fantastic set-piece shoot-outs.
  • Pros: The story missions are an absolute blast, Several new, great-looking locales, Great new voice acting
  • Cons: Many of the side missions are beyond infuriating, Too little narrative context, Mafia II's mechanics don't lend themselves well to timed objectives

This add-on is a hollow return to a distinctive city.

  • Summary: Mafia II featured great shooting and fun fisticuffs, but it was the story and set piece levels that gave it that extra punch. The game's first premium downloadable add-on, Jimmy's Vendetta, is a sizeable one, but it's a dim shadow of its big brother.
  • Pros: Great opening sequence, The core action is still great, The best missions give you a chance to make things go boom
  • Cons: Too many missions are boring, Too many missions are frustrating, Too little narrative context, Mafia II mechanics don't lend themselves well to timed objectives

  • Excerpt: A lot has changed in the video game industry in the last decade. We've got high speed online gaming, dazzling HD 3D visuals and the ability to deliver entire gaming experiences via digital download. Heck, according to Microsoft, we don't even need controllers anymore.

  • Excerpt: This decent tale of ascension through the mob ranks feels a little outdated as an actual video game.

NBA Live 09 Review

GamerNode
19 October 2008
  • Excerpt: Despite its bigger brand name and history, the NBA Live series just hasn’t matched up to the 2K offerings in the last several years. From abysmal outings to “good but only a stepping stone” ones, year after year Live seems just a bit closer towards what it’s hoping to accomplish, yet so far.

  • Excerpt: Alla som väntat på Mafia II räcker upp en hand! Okej… Alla ni som tror att Mafia II är precis lika bra som föregångaren räcker upp en hand! Hmm, färre antal händer uppe. Jag förstår er och jag måste nog ge er rätt i er skepsis för Mafia II är tyvärr inte lika bra som sin föregångare.
