Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Opinions on this game have certainly proven to be as divisive as the initial reaction to the original Mafia in 2002, right down to the 4/10 Eurogamer review. It's understandable because while Mafia 2 does far more right than it does wrong, the wrongs are difficult to ignore.

Mafia 2 is a linear story-driven game set in the 1940s-1950s with an open world city as a backdrop for immersion purposes. This game is not a GTA4 clone and has never advertised itself to be one, any expectations for it to be so are entirely the fault of uninformed gamers. The city is about 10 square miles in size and highly detailed, it's a beautiful recreation of the time period and the devs use it effectively during certain story segments to give the impression of a city evolving with time. There are gas stations, clothing stores, diners, gun shops, body shops and a scrap yard/docking area to interact with throughout the game, along with different living residences depending on where you are during the storyline and locations that only open for missions. You will not find GTA-like mini games like throwing darts or anything like that, but that doesn't mean the open city is devoid of things to do. You can steal cars in multiple ways (breaking the window, picking the lock, or even shooting the lock) then take them to a body shop to change the plates and paint color to legalize it, then customize it further through engine upgrades for better handling and changing the tires for looks. You can pick fights with the various gangs that have established holds on various parts of the city, rob stores, or anger the police to see how long you can hold out.

3.0 out of 5 stars Goodfellas + GTA = Meh April 3, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
In short, this game was fun. It has several problems - its gameplay isn't as tight as GTA, its story is VERY cliche - but if you can get it cheap it's a lot of fun. The mission structure is dumb - I understand they made it that way to tell the story, but its structure is more like a linear shooter pretending to be an open world game. In the end, the game was nothing special, but fun nonetheless.

A great plus: no matter where and how you buy it (download or disk, Amazon or Wal-Mart) you can register the CD key on Steam; this allows you to add it to your Steam library, earn Steam achievements, and re-download it from Steam as many times as you like.

4.0 out of 5 stars Strangely empty, but flashes of brilliance August 31, 2010
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm not quite sure what to make of this game. It's simultaneously more of everything-- more physics, more details, more city --and less than the sum of its parts. As the heir-apparent to the original Mafia, it leaves something to be desired.

GRAPHICS: Graphics are top-drawer for a city of this size. Night scenes and rain are standouts, with glare from oncoming headlights and real-time shadows enhancing the experience. Cars can be so pretty that you're inclined to drive well just to avoid scratches. Relative to the original Mafia, draw distances have been significantly expanded, so you can view the cityscape from miles away. On my quad-core / GTX 460 768MB rig, the framerate is smooth almost all of the time with every option maxed out at 1920x1200. What little stuttering I do see would probably be mitigated by a graphics card with 1 GB of memory.

The only disappointments are facial animation and a detail 'pop-in' effect that can't be adjusted. Half-Life 2 had superior speech and emotion animations six years ago. While the skin shaders are better here, only the excellent voice acting and motion capture lend life to the characters.

CARS: A high point of the first Mafia game was the vehicle system. Cars handled just as badly as their real-life counterparts. Tires, doors, windows, and other parts could be destroyed, with a realistic effect on handling. Much of that has been preserved or enhanced in this game. All the cars have appropriately unique engine sounds. Damage models have been refined to allow for lateral frame damage, and doors and other moving parts will sway or fall off as they should. Car customization is a new feature, though limited to rims, paint, and two all-in-one engine and handling packages.

A few areas in the driving model lack a bit.

4.0 out of 5 stars Serviceable period mob romp but falls short of greatness December 31, 2010
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
In Mafia 2, you play Vito Scaletta, a first generation italian immigrant as he goes on his adventures (and misadventures) with his childhood friend Joe Barbaro through 40s/50s mob-land (New York City renamed "Empire Bay"). Although this game shares a publisher (Take Two) with the "other" open-world gangster game series (a little game called GTA by a little outfit called Rockstar), it is a Czech production (2K Czech). This dichotomy really shows, Mafia 2 offers up top shelf voice-acting, and licensed music, and above average graphics; yet it somehow falls short of greatness. The 15 missions (which you have to accept from your safehouse) are short and simplistic, and there is only a single story arc. And once you complete the game, you are effectively locked out of the sandbox mode! The incessant racial slurs and explicit violence seemed overtly sensationalistic and detracted from the experience (chances are there will be a racial slur hurled at your ethnicity haltingly delivered by a half-embarrassed voice actor). These unfortunate design and writing missteps mar this otherwise enjoyable period piece. Che peccato.
