Mafia II 'Free Ride' mode released

Mafia II fans were angry over the fact that Mafia II doesn't have "free ride" option similiar to Mafia I which opens the door for potential DLC by 2K. But don't worry as some modders have created a mod for the PC version to enable free ride and you can even choose the wether and time of the day.

Too bad this mod is nothing like free ride extreme, with its cool "quests". I wanna collect crazy experimental cars again.

It's still pretty cool, though.

... What about us PS3/X360 owners? Awwww man.... :(

DavidMacDougall4667d ago

Don't worry about it the city is bare and boring, all the reviews have said that it lacks anything fun between missions.

Nitrowolf24667d ago

i am enjoying the game, but i havn't done free roam yet just story, it is pretty good

DavidMacDougall4667d ago

Yeah the first mafia was amazing just for the story, even if the city was bland.

This is why PC will remain superior

shazui1234667d ago (Edited 4667d ago )

Lack of uncharted 1/2, god of war 3, gt5, the last guardian, killzone 2/3, heavy rain, socom 4, MGS4, Littlebigplanet 1/2, infamous 1/2, resistance 1/2/3, ratchet and clank, motorstorm, MAG, red dead redemption etcetera is why PC will remain inferior

@ panda, then your opinion stinks and almost every major website/reviewer/ game awards board strongly disagrees with it :)

then again, in mine and almost every major website/review/ game awards board's opinion the games I've listed are superior to almost every multiplatform game :)
I get to play them all, so I'm not fussed :)

Pandamobile4667d ago (Edited 4667d ago )

Most of those games besides Uncharted 2 and MGS4 were pretty average in my opinion :)

I've got a PS3 and I've played just about every game that you listed (aside from the ones that aren't released yet). Sorry dude, but I've been spoiled by years of PC gaming so the only PS3 games that I really enjoyed are the ones that really, really stand out. For me, that list is just U2 and MGS4.

God of War 3? Never been a fan of hack and slash games. Looks pretty though. Killzone 2? Have it, play it regularly; game suffered a lot due to the retarded controls. Heavy Rain, played half of it, wasn't interested enough to continue. MGS4? Loved it. Favourite game for PS3. Little Big Planet? There's other, better sandbox games on PC. Infamous? Haven't tried it. Resistance? Graphics were shit other than the water, gameplay was bland. Ratchet and Clank? Currently have A Crack in Time rented, I'll let you know after I beat it.


Letros4667d ago (Edited 4667d ago )

SW:TOR, GW2, Civ 5, Witcher 2, Dawn of War 2, Red Orchestra: Heroes of Stalingrad, Shogun 2: Total War, Diablo 3, StarCraft 2...anyway, if you want to "play them all" you gotta have a gaming rig.

Only real reason I have a PS3 is for GT5, and I will probably move on to rFactor 2 when that comes out.

shazui1234667d ago (Edited 4667d ago )

I've got an asus G73JH and a GTX 295 with an i7 CPU and 6 gigs of ddr3 ram......

@ Panda, again, thats your opinion, and your opinion stinks and generally the whole gaming media disagree with your opinion hence why LBP was GOTY over any other game and every other game you listed was rated very highly and given awards...
If thats your opinion of the latest and greatest games then good for you but dont be surprised if only other fanboys like yourself agree. As I said before, I dont mind, I have an Asus G73JH laptop, a gtx 295, a 360 and a ps3.. I'll provide picture proof if you don't believe me :)

Psychotica4667d ago

Let's see which system renders grass better...

Letros4667d ago

I never really implied "you" didn't have a rig, I assumed you did when you said "play them all". I'm just saying, people that want the whole experience, shouldn't miss out on what PC has to offer, I'm sure you can agree with that.

OpenGL4666d ago

You mean the same reviewers that scored Modern Warfare 2 higher than every PS3 exclusive released aside from Uncharted 2 and Little Big Planet? This is proof enough that reviewers should not always be taken seriously.

The fact is the PC is superior when it comes to multi-platforms. I love my PS3 for the exclusives like Uncharted 2 and Little Big Planet. The exclusives alone are more than enough to make the platform worthwhile in my eyes.

jy_mrnd4666d ago

PC=Superior PS3=Inferior when compared to PC! Nuff said!

lolzers4666d ago

Uncharted 1/2 - Great games

God of war 3 - Not as good as the first two, but still great

Gt5 - Not out yet

The last guardian - Not out yet

Killzone 2 - Over-rated. Overhyped by ps3 fanbois, fairly little substance held together by above average graphics for console.

Heavy rain - Pretty good, marred by bad controls and QTEs.

Socom 4 - Nothing that hasn't been seen before.

MGS4 - Cutscenes, some gameplay, cutscenes, some gameplay, cutscenes, some gameplay, rinse and repeat....

Littlebigplanet - A game that lets users make their own levels. Well, that's novel isn't it? Never seen that done before. Oh yes, I have actually. The sequel should be better. More ps3 fanbois will claim it's never been done before.

Infamous 1/2 - Infamous was excellent, only let down by a poor framerate. The sequel isn't out yet.

Resistance 1/2 - Below par FPS games. The sequel isn't out yet.

Ratchet and clank - Excellent games

Motorstorm - Never played it. Sequel looks good. But isn't out yet.

MAG - Never played it. Ooooh, 256 players.

Red Dead Redemption - Excellent game, would be better suited to pc. If only.

PC - Has thousands upon thousands of games, many many exclusives, better graphics, more control choice, cheaper game prices and mod communities making existing games even better.

PC+Console - Has everything.

IMO the ps3 only has its exclusives, I couldn't just game on those exclusives, a real gamer has to have all the best games.

DeathMetal4666d ago (Edited 4666d ago )

you forget that many of the best games are multi platform not exclusives and PC has such features as HD, blood and grass. Uncharted was good so was MGS4. Killzone is a boring game with shitty controls,Every reviewer you mean PS3 fanboy sights. Killzone 2 user score on metacritic is 83, and those I put way more stock in. BFBC2 way better than killzone. Resistence is crap, Ratchet and clank who cares? MAG is also crap, Heavy Rain is barley a game. So your exclusives are nothing special and run at crappy framerates in sub HD most of the time. Crysis 2 will blow away killzone, GTA series on Pc looks like a differnet game compared to consoles. Old republic , Diablo 3, Starcraft 2, nuff said.

pork_chop_express4666d ago

Letros list is funny, and true there are very few pc exclusives or multiplats that are superior enough to bother, if it wasn't for company of heroes and dawn of war and checking the odd demo there is little to get me to use it to game.

HSx94666d ago

PC isn't inferior, it's actually more fun considering people can mod it and make customizations that would be impossible on Console.
For example, Just Cause 2: On consoles it didn't have multiplayer, but for PC somebody made a mod to allow people to play online, not only that but more fun things, than are not possible on PS3.

How can anyone disagree?!?! :S fanboyism ftl

shows what kind of person hangs around Multiplatform game articles.... ;)


RagTagBnd4454667d ago (Edited 4667d ago )

Panda beat me to it.

shazui1234667d ago (Edited 4667d ago )

Unless, oh, you're a fanboy?

Why would high scoring GOTYs that are renowned for being some of the best games of the generation be of no interest to a gamer? to a fanboy that couldn't play them, maybe, but not to a proper gamer

Nice edit tobebech

@ below, ahem.... HAHAHAHA fanboys like me? see what I originally replied to? "PC remains superior"? riight, Im the fanboy. Because I listed a bunch of ps3 exclusives (and red dead redemption) I could just as well say Halo Reach, Gears of War 2, Forza 3, Alan wake.. those were just the ones I particularly enjoyed o.O your logic is.... a bit odd. I didnt say the PS3 was superior I just said the PC was inferior which tbh I don't mean, it's different for everyone but if I didn't have my PS3 or 360 I would miss out on all those GOTY exclusives.. thats all :) So would everyone else thats not a fanboy I imagine.
Btw I have an Asus G73JH and a GTX 295... just saying... I've played all the PCs 'best' games.... at max...

Garbage like you need to stop frequenting this website, that goes for everyone else that wouldn't miss any of the aforementioned games.

Johandevries4667d ago

LOL my comment just implied that the option to mod a game gives players a lot more control and it means that they can't be milked as much as Modern Warfare 2-like console players. The power of the people belongs to PC

Charmers4667d ago (Edited 4667d ago )

@ shazui123 - yeah because your post wasn't in any way fanboyish was it ? Listing off a number of PS3 exclusive games and claiming that the PC will remain inferior because of the exclusives.

Tell me how superior is the PS3 when it comes to Starcraft 2 ? or Diablo 3 ? or The Witcher ? how about Stalker ? I would take those four games over your exclusives any day of the week.

All platforms have their exclusives, I find the exclusives on the PC match my personal tastes hence I am a PC gamer. Now of that little list you posted only two games mildly interest me, they are Resistance and Killzone, but it will be a cold day in hell before I play an FPS game with a damn joypad.

This is an excellent bit of news for those that have Mafia 2 on the PC and as always fanboys like you come charging in with your rubbish.

Charmers4667d ago (Edited 4667d ago )

@ shazui123 - You came into a PC news piece listing a bunch of PS3 exclusives and then stated "this is why the PC will remain inferior". Now honestly if I went into a PS3 news piece and started spouting the PC's exclusive games and saying "that is why the PS3 will remain inferior" you would call me a fanboy quick smart (and a troll to boot). So yeah your posting in here is fanboyism whether you like it or not.

I see you are quick to resort to insulting remarks as well calling people that have a different opinion to you "garbage". If you do not like fanboyism and people trolling on here then I suggest you look at your own activity before you criticise others.

jy_mrnd4666d ago

Agree with charmers that's why i game on PC!

Johandevries4667d ago

What's with the disagrees? A wether is a castrated ram

despair4667d ago

lol wow didn't know that...not sure if I like knowing that either, and yea why the hell would you get disagrees for fixing an error...some people.

CrzyFooL4666d ago

How the hell do you know such things!? Do you castrate rams for a living?

comp_ali4667d ago
