Mafia 2 Xbox 360 game review
Mafia 2 for the Xbox 360 is a well thought out game that makes you believe you are playing the actual life story of a 1950’s Mafioso on his way up in the illicit world of murder, drugs and paid protection.
- The story line is fantastic.
- Empire city looks amazing and it is thoroughly detailed.
- The combat system is very well designed (both melee and firearm).
- Very linear world – not much to do outside of missions.
You live the life of Empire City mobster Vito Scaletta who, after returning from the war, gets in touch with one of his old buddies Joe. He finds out that there have been some problems at home with bookies and that he needs money and he needs it quickly. Straight away he is hooked into the business and you play the role of Vito as he slowly climbs the ranks in the family with Joe.
Vito plays a great main character as he is constantly questioning the gang lifestyle. He is torn between keeping his family happy and the lavish party that is the life of a Mafioso’s. He knows the consequences but he’s in too deep to get out; the lifestyle has a firm grip on the once modest man. The mob life is a brutal cut-throat world, while you get the fast cars, guns and girls, your friends will turn on you in a second if the pay is right. Mafia 2 captures the life beautifully with a simple job of selling cigarettes turning into a city wide, guns-blazing car chase but the trilling story line and dramatic twists will keep you on the edge wanting to make you “take that chance”. The game comes to a passionate and shocking end that might leave you a little disappointed, but is still a great ride that is well worth taking.Read More
