Mafia II: Director’s Cut

Thunderbolt Games
27 April 2011
  • Excerpt: One of my biggest regrets from 2010 was not writing a review for Mafia II . Though somewhat derivative of crime stories told before it, Mafia II ‘s narrative engages the player from the start and uses the brilliant backdrop of Empire Bay to establish a compelling game world. Vito Scalleta’s storied rise and fall in the world of organized crime is presented to us in extremely polished cutscenes rivaling any entry in the genre.

PS3/X360/PC Review - 'Mafia II: Joe's Adventures'

WorthPlaying
25 November 2010
  • Summary: Mafia II immerses players in the mob underworld of a fictitious late 1940s-early 1950s scenario by fusing high-octane gunplay with white-knuckle driving and an engaging narrative. The Joe's Adventures DLC continues the story through the eyes of Joe Barbaro, Vito Scaletta’s best friend, during the time that Vito spends in prison.

Mafia II: Jimmy's Vendetta Review

GamerNode
10 November 2010
  • Excerpt: When you think about Mafia II , you think about the game’s story. The captivating mob tale of Vito Scaletta and his quest to escape his past and survive his present is what made the game such a solid open-world title. Strong voice acting, cinematic cutscenes, intriguing in-game dialogue, a wonderful soundtrack, and the city of Empire Bay all combined for a unique story about organized crime that stood out in a genre that’s mostly focused on letting the player do whatever...

Mafia II Review

DailyGame
7 November 2010
  • Excerpt: A couple of years back, I embarked upon a self-imposed mission: to bring back the spirit and style of the 1940s and ’50s. I began wearing a tie to the office every day. I bought a fedora and brown derby, and made sure to wear one of the two Monday through Friday. I even bought a trenchcoat, for crying out loud. All I needed was a tommy gun and I’d have been eligible for digitization in 2K Games’ era-dependent game Mafia II. Minus the Italian accent, mind you.

Mafia II Review

31 October 2010
  • Excerpt: With Mafia 2, developer 2K Czech has created a game with the atmosphere of Goodfellas and characters that are fun to spend time with, but somewhere in development the studio forgot that gamers generally want to do things they can't do in real life. For a lot of game's 10-12 hours lead character Vito does, for want of a better term, odd-jobs - and not the kind that require guns.

  • Conclusion: Mafia II is exactly the sequel Mafia fans have been waiting all these years for. It's a brutal tale of underworld family business and killing without a second thought that will have you hooked all the way. You'd do well to grab yourself a copy. Capeesh?

Mafia II

Playstation Illustrated

  • Excerpt: If you took a look at the score up there, you already know that I was not as hot on Mafia II as FenixDown. That's not saying that Mafia II is bad by any means. In fact, it is better than many other games that came out this year. Where FenixDown felt it was Game of the Year material, I simply thought it was "okay.

Fallen Empire

5 October 2010
  • Conclusion: An average score for a mediocre game. Mafia 2 is a step backward for this franchise, failing to innovate or learn from the mistakes of the original. A nice setting and potentially interesting story is wasted by a lack of creativity and polish.
