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.

It's uncanny seeing how American this game is which was made by a group of Czech developers. It is very authentically American, reminding me a lot of the city of Pittsburgh with the freeways surrounding the city and the Italian flags on townhomes. When you drive, you will hear familiar tunes that you haven't heard in years and can't quite name.

The detail is phenomenal. Walk into a bar and it really looks like a bar that you might have a drink in. It isn't a rush job like how GTA 4's interior's felt. It feels like the developers spent a significant amount of time crafting it, and it really shows. It feels like an American bar. Same for the other stores. You actually see other customers in these places doing their own thing.

The game was so realistic that I found myself actually following the rules. The world was so authentic that I felt that it would be wrong to wage destruction on the citizens. So I stop at stoplights and I follow the speed limit. When I broke the speed limit, the cops pulled me over and I paid a fine. In the beginning, you see the protagonist Vito praying with his mother. How many games do this?

Contrast this with GTA which is cynical to the core of it, down to like skipping out of a hospital completely healed up and still holding guns after murdering dozens of people on the street. GTA 4 is a game which I just cannot get myself to finish.

I'm careful with my car because it costs money to repair the car. So I follow the rules of the world. There are more rules that are followed. I actually honk my horn at rude drivers. One driver side-swiped me and I got out in a fit of road rage. HOW DARE HE SIDE-SWIPE MY VIRTUAL CAR. Then I pulled out my gun but he shot me first.

I've been waiting for Mafia 2 since a couple years ago when I first heard of it. I'm not a shooting games guy, but I played the first Mafia several years ago and it's still one of my favorite games. Mafia II uses a very similar formula to the first one overall and, although they took away some things from the first game that I liked a lot, they added some other and it's a freaking game!!! They put a lot of attention to details all over the place. Still, I understand why some people might not like it, there's a lot of driving, and sometimes you have to do not-so-exciting stuff like loading crates on a truck. If you're on the fence I'd suggest you to download the demo and try it out or keep reading, I'll go into more detail without giving any of the story away.

LONG REVIEW (Read the short one first):
The driving is amazing, the cars get smashed, parts of them fly out, the trunk and hood unlatch when you hit'em, etc. They even get dirty!!! The other thing I love is that you're not invincible inside the car, you're vulnerable to gunshots and crashes, you can actually get killed in one crash if it's hard enough. I read some reviewers who don't like this and prefer the style of GTA and other games where you can flip around, jump and crash and nothing happens to your health. I respect that but to me, the risk of getting killed or shot raises the stakes and makes it more exciting. It's way more exciting to know that if you crash at high speed you can die than to just drive around smashing everything off the way with no consequences, this is especially true in car chases. The only thing I don't like about the driving in Mafia II is that they simplified it from the first one.
