The newest mobster game on the market right now is Mafia 2, a sequel of Mafia 1 also known as City of Lost Heaven. It was released at the end of August 2002, this is the best mobster game I played so far, story, characters, weapons, cars, the missions you have to complete and obviously the action, all are jaw dropping in my opinion and if you haven’t played it yet you shout, but I’m not going to talk about this game to much, because the star of our show right now is his predecessor Mafia 2. The game was released this year at the end of August and was put together by the same 2K Games who did a splendid job, again.
About the game, like the first one, this is a third-person action-adventure video game, where you play as a Mafioso who makes his way into the family and up the social ladder as fast as possible leaving behind him a long line of crimes, thefts, and robberies, all that for respect and money. The story goes down something like this… Vito Scaletta starts on the streets of Empire Bay and soon he’ll make a name for himself as someone who can be trusted to get a job done. With his buddy Joe, he is working to prove himself to the Mafia, doing all it takes to become a wise guy. Intense gun fights, car chases and hand-to-hand combats will be the routine of his every day at work.
All action takes place in a beautifully rendered outdoor environments and intricately designed interiors, the era is well delineated through cars, architecture, music and clothing all in stunning detail. I played the game, it’s a piece of art, even if I played at medium-low graphic details, everything looks wonderful. One more thing about the story, you can’t predict what will happen, everything you know can turn to 180 degrees in a couple of moments. In my opinion this in the game of the year at his category.
You just have to play this one!
Start your journey as an enforcer for your family and become one of the most feared mafia bosses the world ever seen.
