Mafia II Greatest Hits
First Impressions after an hour of play.
I was lucky because I got the last copy of the "Greatest Hits" version at my local Gamestop and for only $20; for a new game and ALL of the DLC's. I already love them game. You immediately start off shooting people which gives you a good sense of what the third person shooting is like and it is quite honestly pretty realistic for a third person shooter. The guns aren't like in the first two "Resistance" games where you aim and never miss; there is recoil. So basically, at the point I'm at, you have jobs to do in order to gain money because you are paying back your dead father's debts when you get home from the war. It isn't a free roam game which I like because I enjoy having set missions. (At least there isn't free roam as of right now.) I really felt like a mobster playing Mafia II. The graphics are pretty good, not the best that I've ever seen but I can't complain. So overall, I have enjoyed my short amount of time playing Mafia II. I'm currently doing the hardest level because I want a challenge. Be sure to check back soon for a "2.0" review from me!
Review 2.0: Simply amazed
I had high expectations for this game when I bought it and I was blown away! The campaign has everything you could want: a good story, great gunplay, hand-to-hand combat, and driving. The game is straight forward- no side missions just the primary objectives that are easy to understand. The graphics are simply beautiful. They are ever-changing because of the different seasons and environments that you encounter on your journey in the mob. I was surprised because money is not a factor for the most part. I did not spend any more than $500 throughout the whole game. Money is used to pay back people. I haven't started the DLC's and will not for a while because of Battlefield 3. Many people are complaining because of the lack of multiplayer but this should have been expected. The only thing they could have done was to have a co-op campaign option, Overall, I was beyond satisfied with Mafia II. The smooth and enjoyable gameplay, the beautiful visuals, and aggressive storyline makes Mafia II Greatest Hits a deal that cannot be passed up intense gamers, especially ones who like good third person shooters. The games I listed below are perfect for lovers of third person shooters.
*Director's Cut* The Greates Hits
First of all i recommend you to buy the *Greatest Hits* Edition of the game because it's basically *The Director's Cut* of the game.This edition comes with all of the DLC on the disc so when you insert the game in your system it will automatically install.This is one of those games that you get hooked not because of the gameplay-well the gameplay too-but of the deep enriching story it tells.I won't spoil anything but I'll give you some details.You do missions to proceed the story,you can earn money by robbing stores,customize your cars,buys guns,you can even bribe police officers to forget what crime you caused.The voice acting is amazing.So pick this game up if you like the 1940s-1950s era with the music and the cars with the guns of the era.
One of the best games
Mafia 2 is one of the best games ever. The story is amazing and fun. The DLCs just add more fun. The style packs just add more swag to Vito. The music in this is amazing.
Awesome mafia game
Id say this is probably the best mafia game out there next to the godfather. The story line is pretty awesome and realistic. The game arrived in 2 days. The only complaint I have is that its pretty short and I finished it in about 4 days (equals to around 12 hours) and there's no side missions or tasks to do after the main story finishes. For the price its worth it but the games not bad. Only reason I bought from gamestop was because they had the greatest hits edition and that they deliver to canada.
I bougt this game back in april and i just now beat it, but i will be playing it as long as i can, it was a AMAZING game
Probably number 2 on my list!
I got this game just because i wanted a new game. I had no idea this game was going too be a masterpiece! This game is like Grand Theft Auto on steroids! The cars are awesome and you can customize them and putting supercharges in them are the best parts. The missions are great, the story is great and you will have 2 play this game! With the style packs and the Jimmy packs for free that is an amazing deal! Basically all the packs are 10 dollars so your getting about 30 bucks worth of free stuff! Pick this game up!
Nothing is better
Mafia 2 is just plain AWESOME!!!!! I also own MW3, but ever since i got Mafia 2 i havent evn looked at the MW3 box. Plus, with all the DLC packs and missions its twice as good. If you like open world games or third-person shooters this is your dream game. If you don't like this game then you are just sick and you have NO love for video games. I garantee you that once you spend $20 on this game then you will forget any other game and you will get ABSOLUTLY hookedon to this one.
Best Game Ever!!!
I got this game last week and i just had to have it. this is my favorite game of all times untell they come out with a 3rd Mafia. if u like the 40's and 50's then you have to get this game.
I simply love this game it's amazing also it gets even more amazing with the content :D but your prob wondering why i gave this game a 9 maybe because the driving controls are simply annoying as mess i couldn't complete the mission because of this minor detail >:( like why R2 because im still stuck on the mission where you have to sell the stamps like if the update that i haven't done yet fixes it and lets you set it to X then that will be the most helpful thing ever im just gonna say this R2 is annoying even though i already said this like ill hold down R2 For 5 mins and it will feel as though the trigger is broken :(
