IncGamers: Mafia II Review

IncGamers' Tom Hoggins travels to the underworld of the 1940s gangster filled action game Mafia II. Does the game tempt you with an offer you can't refuse or should it really be sleeping with the fishes?

From the review:

"It’s important to realise Empire Bay is just that: a stage. This isn’t the open-world of GTA, stuffed with frivolous distraction: bowling alleys, street races and manky bars in which you can play darts, watch Ricky Gervais or get banjoed with your cousin. Mafia II just isn’t that game, not least because I’m pretty sure Gervais wasn’t around in the 1940s. You can cruise the streets in a chunky Cadillac if you feel like it, but outside of selling a few cars and buying a natty new fedora, Empire is just the backdrop for a tale of blood and money. A beautifully manufactured backdrop, but a backdrop nonetheless." (Mafia 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 8.6/10

8.6 should be enough to avoid a pair of concrete shoes from 2k
