Mafia II: Joe's Adventures

The Armchair Empire
5 January 2011
  • Conclusion: contacts in order to make his living through the death of others. At first, it looks like Joe’s Adventures will run into the same major complaint that was apparent in the original game: the monotonous back-and-forth traveling between the character’s apartment, the mission contact, and the mission itself, to returning back to the apartment. With the exception of the first mission, Adventures thankfully does away of the mechanic once the big time skip occurs.

  • Excerpt: Joe's Adventures stars, you guessed it, Vito's friend and partner in crime, Joe Barbaro. It takes place during the time in the original game when Vito was in prison, and opens with Vito's arrest and trial. Now Joe's not a bad character to base an adventure on – sure, he's pretty much a stereotypical bullheaded and self-absorbed mafia goon, but the stereotype did come about because they're entertaining to watch in their own way.

Expert Review

  • 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. It's unfortunate that the side missions surrounding them range from plain old boring to downright awful.
  • 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

Mafia 2: Joe's Adventures - Test

3 December 2010
  • Summary: Wenn Joe nach einem Auffahrunfall ein herzliches „Vollidiot!" vor sich hin brummelt, erobert er sich ruck, zuck einen Platz in meinem Herzen. Joe ist ein echter Sympathieträger. Joe's Adventures liefert zusätzliche Schießereien, eine Handvoll neuer Einsatzorte und einige Stunden klischeehaftes Mafia-Treiben. So weit, so gut, denn davon bekomme ich an sich nie genug. Nur nach vorne bringt das Add-On Mafia 2 kein Stück.
