    A very enjoyable 7-8/10 game, but with some glaring flaws., August 29, 2010

    This review is from: Mafia II (DVD-ROM)

    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. Just like the original Mafia, the city is all about creating immersion and giving opportunity for the player to create their own experiences rather than fill it with mini-games.

    Mafia 2’s story runs anywhere from 8-15 hours of game time, depending on difficulty level and how quickly you move through it. You play as Vito and are often accompanied by his childhood friend Joe, and spend most of the game in some state of proving yourself to one of the Mafia families in Empire Bay. My initial impression of the story wasn’t a good one, but after playing it again it finally hit me what the story was about and my opinion changed drastically. Unlike Mafia 1, this is not a rags to riches story and this is not about the fall of an honorable man. Vito is not Tommy and he’s not meant to be. Vito is a guy that is entirely driven by not becoming a loser dockworker like his father: he wants money, cars, women, the nice house, and the nice clothes. To him everything hinges on possessions and thus everything and everyone becomes possessions to him. It’s the story of a destructive, selfish man who goes out and takes what he wants and how that devastates everyone around him. I really, really enjoyed the story, including the ending I originally found abrupt, once I realized that.

    There has been some criticism leveled at Mafia 2 for racism and sexism, but most of it is not being looked at properly. Yes, the main characters are racist and sexist and there isn’t anybody there to tell them off for it…because this takes place in the ’40s and early ’50s, from largely uneducated, ignorant, poor characters involved with the Mafia. Their attitudes were normal for the time period, social circles, and social stature. And as already said, Vito views women the same way he views cars and money; they are things to be obtained, not people to establish relationships with.

    Yes, there are vintage Playboy covers/centerfolds as optional collectibles in-game and feature the nudity you’d expect from them. These have earned quite a bit of ire and are used as support for the game being sexist, but I — as a female gamer — don’t agree with it. For one, they are completely optional and very easy to miss even if you’re looking for them. They don’t float above the ground and spin and glow and have a “CLICK ME!” sign above them like collectibles in other games. Instead, they’re stashed on desks or half-under beds and other places you’d expect someone to leave them. They blend in perfectly with the environment and look only slightly different from other decorations…they’re practically pixel hunts. They don’t offer any kind of tangible reward outside of an achievement and completion percentage that would force you to collect them if you didn’t want to. They also tie in perfectly with Vito’s attitude…he’s *exactly* the type of guy that’d grab some poor late night security guard’s dirty magazine while robbing the place, and reflects his view of everything being possessions. It’s just like the other collectible, the Wanted Posters. Vito would be just as inclined to yank down Wanted Posters as he would steal Playboy mags, there’s nothing random or out of place about them. If they were required to unlock guns or cars or something from a gameplay point of view, I’d understand the furor over them, but…

    Fun story but that’s exactly what it is a playable story. Linear with no story line branches.
    Graphics are great. Sound and immersion factor are good. Controls are so so.
    No option to use a racing wheel for driving. Over all still work a play through.
    I highly recommend “The Saboteur” Same era with just about as good graphics but
    many more options, free play, etc.

    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.
