Resolution's Steve K Peacock writes: Mafia 2 is one of the most disappointing games I’ve played, made all the worse by the fact that it isn’t bad. The mechanics hold up well. Shooting is especially joyful, popping out of cover to introduce a couple of mooks to the afterlife is greeted with satisfying death animations, giving the guns weight. There’s a grittiness to the shooting that, at least until the later missions, lacks that Hollywood feel. The deaths are far from graceful, people stumbling and scrabbling to cover in a manner reminiscent of the best 50’s gangster movies.
