looking for gripping story? smooth game play? lovable characters? look no further
10 June 2016 | by joekimber1998See all my reviews

First of saying, I've been a fan of the Mafia series since Mafia: Lost Heaven came out back in the mid 2000's but when Mafia 2 came out it blew it right out of the water! The story follows a young Italian man named Vito Scaletta as him and his best friend Joe rise up into the ranks of the Mafia underworld in 1940's/1950's Empire Bay. Throughout the story there are a lot of twists and revelations that will leave you thinking, also glazed with gorgeous graphics for a PS3 game. The game play is solid, the handling of the cars when driving, the shooting and finally the explosions are smooth, they will complete your gaming experience (The DLC's aren't bad either check them out!) Finally, you have the historic accuracy of the real life events that also occur in game such as The Rosenbergs, Eisenhower, Auschvitz etc. The Soundtrack I couldn't ask for more great songs! A wide variation of R&B to Rock and Roll. Seriously if I haven't convinced you by reading this you need to read it again! Seriously 2K well done looking forward to Mafia 3 in October!!
