Relive Real-Life Mob Crimes in 'Mafia II'

Asylum.com writes: "2K Games' recently released period organized-crime title 'Mafia II' is a fairly accurate depiction of gangster life in the '40s and '50s. It features collectible (and NSFW) Playboy magazine covers, racial tension among the inhabitants of its NYC-inspired Empire City, and plenty of Italian wiseguys shooting, looting and screwing -- much to the chagrin of protesters -- all while looking dapper in three-piece suits.

Of course, the in-game missions, which protagonist Vito Scaletta takes on in his quest to become a made man, are based on true criminal capers. We looked into the Italian mafia's history to bring you the facts behind the player's virtual actions."

The story is too old to be commented.

I can't wait to use the term "buttlegging" in every day speech.
