View Full Version : Things You Hate About JV DLC

I forgave the makers of Mafia 2 for there stupid wanted poster achievement. Who was it as i look at every one of those faces from those posters came up with the idea "Hey you know what would be cool if we dressed up like gangsters and did mug shots put them as wanted posters all around the city".

First of ask the question would you yourself want to go looking around for a bunch of random posters?

Would you find this an entertaining experience that adds to your overall enjoyment of the game?

And i think the answer would be no.

Im seriously thinking now it doesn't take that much brains to make a game. My belief that it takes talent to build realstic worlds and complex mechanics to govern them is all but with almost every game these days, falling apart.

And JV is just the latest example. So they went for the contrived cinematic storyline with bare minimal freeplay of course not realising that a 20 hour story is less enduring than a large amount free play. Oh wait of course they realised that they just decided to release it in small teasing waves of DLC to take more money out our pockets.

Ahh but they failed to think this through as they opened up more free play in the game. Example being the cops. Now while the cops worked well in the minimal freeplay but now in a larger free play game they just don't work with the new mission structures.

So as your trying to fire away at some gangsters bobby on the beat comes walking along instant shoot to kill and before long all his friends have come to join.

But wait maybe im doing something wrong perhaps the head on approach is not the way. Ok lets go round the back and flank them oh and another random cop/cop car driving past see's me/here's the gun fire.

What makes it worse is all the missions are timed. So your speeding about in your car to get away as quickly as possible before long your being chased for a speeding ticket or a hit and run.

Seriously WTF. Why oh why do game designers not think this really really simple stuff through. Different missions structures means there should be different AI.

So far, I haven't had anymore trouble with the cops than I did in the main game. My main complaint about JV is that it's just really boring compared to Vito's story. I'm not enjoying this aimless mission hunting at all. I'd like to know who the hell thought making it free-roam was a good idea. I do enjoy that I now get to play more of the game, but I'm really disappointed by the lack of structure.

I agree about the cops. They have been more of a pain this time around than they ever were because a lot of the action takes place outside within the city instead of in doors.

That and with the timed missions you're always rushing and there's so much police around that one of them will catch you speeding and that just adds to the frustration.

My biggest pet peeve is having to restart the entire mission when you get killed, especially if you're at the end of it and it happens to be the random police officer that saw you shooting in the first place. That's happened to me a few times.

I played through the game on hard and I'm having more trouble with this DLC than I ever had with the full game. I love the game but I'm really not feeling this DLC, especially since the story is non existant and that was Mafia II's strongest point.

Feels quite repetitive - a GTA feel, do this, do that, shoot this, steal that.

KeepEmRolling
09-08-2010, 01:41 AM
Pretty much agree with your complaints about the game. One thing I found really interesting regarding the cops, at least in an early mission, is that if you put an objective you need to destroy between u and the enemy, and the enemy destroys your objective, the cops leave u alone and shoot them dead.

Kramericus
09-08-2010, 01:44 AM
I have to strongly agree about the cop complaint. If they were going to put many of the missions out in the open right where cops randomly patrol they should have at least given you the ability to preemptively bribe them

09-08-2010, 12:47 PM
Yeah, this is pretty much the worst DLC I've ever bought. People finally got the free-roam they were begging for and it's boring as hell. This is exactly why I don't play GTA.


Also...although I haven't had much trouble with the cops, I did get rather frustrated during one of those missions where you have to beat someone up without weapons. Every time I started the mission, they spawned the guy right next to a cop, who would always break up the fight. I had to wait for him to leave and by the time he was gone, the mission was halfway over.

This is great it seems there recycling achievement pictures. Faster Than Light is just a slightly different looking picture than the one for Hairdresser.

And Sharpshooter they just took the pictures from Chop Cop and stuck 100 on the guy that's getting his blown off shirt.

I agree that the DLC is a bit of a disappointment but I enjoy having another reason to drive around this painstakingly created city. JV feels barebones but I'm having a good enough time with it. I just wish you could earn points for picking locks.

personally i think 2K Czech did a pretty decent job or their first released title. i would have loved M2 more if they did the main story line as mission locations in free roam ala saints row or GTA. at least with JV they got that part right. i want a big fan of the chapter mechanism to advancethe game, and losing all of your money and clothing every 4th chapter or so. also, i had a preconceived notion about M2 that your character woulld somehow rise thru the mafia and become a capo or a boss, like in Godfather 2. it was really crappy that basically you end the game with nothing more than the leather jacket you started with, and the fact that youre still a street punk at the end.

But that is the thing that makes this game different from all the others there is no roaming around doing odd missions, its straight to the point.

09-09-2010, 04:58 AM
it just felt like i was being forced to do the main storyline missions as soon as they became available. i didnt do any of the collections stuff until after i had completed the game. plus, theres so much of the city that the game never does anything with, like the empire state building. i would have loved a mission in it but its just a 2-D backdrop

09-09-2010, 05:02 AM
well still they might have not took the story everywhere where you wanted to go but they still tried there best to make you feel like you are in New York. I think there details on this game is fantastic.

As I get deeper into it Im very disappointed by the lack of story. They set it up so well in the opening cutscene, but then its like they tried to just do things on the cheap by not paying voice actors so they just sort of leave the story behind. Would it have been that hard to throw in some small introductory or post mission cutscenes to make it feel like there is a story going on?

Well i really don't think they were shooting for more story, they just wanted to add a arcade mode in with leaderboards. They also tried to add a gta or saints row feel with the free roam i was a little disappointed in that.

I mean they go from one extreme which was heavy on the story no side activities to the other extreme which was all side activities no story. Is it really that hard for these people to find a middle ground?

Also, Ill go ahead and add the achievements being shit to my complaint list. It was nice having 100% and all but Im not going to waste tons of time grinding out crap like 1000 miles driven or 1000000 points scored. Just isnt worth it.

09-09-2010, 07:28 AM
Overall, I don't think I hate this DLC, but I don't love it either. It's perfectly average. I really wish they would have sprung for some voice work and cutscenes. They could've made them quick and to the point to fit the 'arcade' feel. Ah well, it's nothing amazing but I've played worse.

friedmad
09-09-2010, 02:46 PM
they also broke new ground by introducing the much-anticipated 'scrubbing urinals' gaming activity. i would have liked instead to have been given the option of telling the guard to go eff himself, or at least fighting him for his baton so i could stick it up his where-the-sun-dont-shine after he peed in the freshly-scrubbed urinal

The 1,000,000 points come with the story mode attached so it's not really a grind. The 1000 miles however is a different story lol

Im the very cautious sort of player whereas for the big points one really has to sort of rambo it to a degree. So for me, it will be a grind if I keep retrying stuff to get up to a million

You do know that they also made the first Mafia game, don't you? And about 20 other games? These guys have been around for over a decade; they were just bought by 2K.

You mean, aside from the huge amount of Chicago and San Francisco influence?

dot point time, in no particular order, they are all hates:

** the timer, every mission, yay - surely they could have had an arcade mode without it
** the anger level of the police
** new soundtracks, the thousand miles is a long way and i would have thought they could have helped
** the thousand miles, i have only seen this in pure driving games
** the useless city-points, why are you here?

ok i feel loads better now

I didn't have much complaints about the dlc until yesterday.

I started to load up the game I started on easy, I had around 880,000 points and around 500 miles driving time clocked. I'd only replayed a handful of missions so I had a lot of opportunity to get my final 120,000 pts. As I loaded my game up a message popped up saying "loading failed. Press b to cancel". And still won't load up today and will probably have to start again! Points is bad enough but it's the driving miles that is really pissing me off.

So my complaint is that I payed (as we all did) 800 ms points for something that is actually fucking broken, and broke my save at the end of the day and feel well and truely ripped off!

I feel for you brother.........the only advice I have is the standards:
1) Delete the game from your hard drive and re-download it
2) Clear your hard drive's cache....I don't know how to do this exactly, but just google it

Good Luck

I hate that stupid 1000 miles achievement.

Small city combined with police chasing you after going over 65 = major frustration. Atleast include some place we can go to drive around without worrying about police, like a race track or something.

I didn't have a problem with any other parts of JV, although the patch has made my game freeze up more than a few times.

having to redo achievements that I had already unlocked needed to recover
my profile it was corrupt somehow download it checked xbox.com first everything there that I had start downloading profile watch some tv go back to 360 playboy ,headshot,blow up 100 cars and finish a mission and x10 multi all of which I had unlocked became locked again piss take
same crap happened to me with the Simpsons game unlocked them all in the correct order download profile after it was corrupt somehow everyone cam back in wrong order

now iv got simpsons in wrong order and jv out of order due to ms

the 1000 miles is like the biggest joke for 10g that iv ever seen

just need the headshots and blow up 100 cars ill start a new game again on another save to get them both even though iv done it once already :mad:

could be worse I suppose i could have to do the bastardised no fighting in the war room on vet on cod 4 again ..

My pet peeve is the fact that I have to drive 1000 miles. I have done that in real life, driving to Scotland and back, it was not fun. I can get over the 1K miles if everytime I had to stop for gas it didn't freeze.

This brings me to nicely to another thing. Why do I have to fill my car up every 20 to 30 minutes. I don't have to do that for my car.

Also wanted posters are really meant to be stuck up in places where people can see them.

Apart from this I love the game - apart from cops.

I think the dlc is great, missions are competitive and it takes a lot of skill to get 100+ multiplyers during missions.

The 1000 miles is the worst achievement Ive ever seen though but apart from that the rest are easy enough.

11-11-2010, 07:13 PM
800MS is too much for this DLC. The game freezes after completing storyline, what is interrupting your way to the 1000 miles. But you can fix that with loading up your gamertag and your gamesave on an usb stick (still annoying). Storyline is ok, but not really entertaining. At least this DLC offers free roam :)

and the level im on now which is so impossibly hard its unreal. where you have to destroy four cars on the irish missions. you destroy the first one and you get swarmed by irishmen and cops and die straightaway then have to start the fucking mission from the beginning everytime because theres no checkpoints. simply put this DLC sucks donkey ass!!!!!!!

EDIT: i would like to point out that i wrote this straight after getting my ass repeatedly handed to me on a mission and was very pissed off. ive just started a new game on easy and have to say im quite enjoying it. but ill leave what i posted alone because its mostly true.

This DLC has one good thing - and that's the beutiful, huge, living city, which ALMOST makes it a "okay" game. And this good "thing" already exists in the main game!

Yeah, the rest kind of sucks. Just started the DLC after playing Joe's Adventure, which is a much better option, and well... after 250/250 (which I hopefully will get a beutiful day..) I will never play Jimmy's Vendetta again. Probably.

Kempo10
04-20-2011, 08:34 PM
I freaking hate this DLC..... I mean Joes Adventures was ok, because there was at least SOME storyline occasionally thrown in there, but Jimmy's Vendetta is just terrible!!!

There is no story AT ALL - totally pointless missions, which you essentially have to do EXACTLY THE SAME THING OVER AND OVER AGAIN; all the while being timed, which means you have to rush, hit a civillian, and get INSTANTLY wanted as a result EVERY MISSION. Which then means that you've gotta go to a clothes store, assault a poor young woman, to pick up a new luxury suit, just to go off to another useless, mononous "mission", which is equally awful, and once again leads to you being wanted....

HOWEVER!

I can put up with that so long as the damned explorer cheev didn't exist....

I'm not afraid to say that I've used 45 hours of the falling glitch to get this thing finally done, but seeing as I don't have a wired controller, or plug & play, I've just had it running in the background, whilst I do other things, just pressing the horn every now and then to stop the controller from dying.... Now the sound of "woah!" "nice!" "WOAH!" "hold on tight!" for HOURS is just relentless!!! It's horendous! I just despise the man's voice, and every time he ever says anything, I just think to myself "Shut up Jimmy....", to which he'd respond "nice!", which only angers me more....



ugh....


why oh why did they have to release this awful thing?!?!?

The DLC provided some decent fun, with the exception of no stort at all. Which seems odd cause the greatness mafia 2 had was the captivating story. I agree to most people that the cops in both DLCs are frustrating. Half of the damn missions I spend more time running away from the cops then doing the mission, then its get new clothes and get a new car.

This comment refers to both DLCs and that is how glitchy everything is. There was several occasions I would have to start a mission over because I was caught in some glitch. Also, the power of the shotgun. There was way to many times I would get 1 shot killed by a shotgun with almost a full life bar on medium difficulty. That is not right and sometimes I would be behind cover. But for some reason when I use the shotgun its a piece of shit!

And this should go without saying, 1000 mile achievement has to be one of the worst achievements ever!

Snoop QC
05-25-2011, 02:45 AM
I hate many things about this DLC. First, this stupid point system with an achievement that requires to get 1 000 000 points but fortunately someone found a way to glitch it so it takes 3 hours. Second, like in the main game, there are not any odd jobs, I mean it's an opened sandbox and there is nothing to do beetween missions like I don't know... races for example. Finally, the most stupid thing about JV, the Explorer achievement. All right, I'll be honest and bought it on deal of the week but still, 5-6$ for 10 boring hours of grinding to get 1000 miles is total shit. I hope JA, which I will do next, is better with no stupid achievement.

Having to drive for 1000 miles around a city with possibly one of the worst AI civilian driver coding in any game to date. They disobey the laws of traffic, pull out in front of you, and just hit you and then the cops give you the ticket... at least I am near end, sitting at about 800 miles.

06-02-2011, 09:36 PM
The only thing I hate about this is being timed for every mission, I have set it to easy just to complete it as I can't take my time and feel rushed and then you have cop[=s after you!

I don't really care about the 1000 miles or the 1,000,000 score, I ain't going to bother gettting it.

DanielH
06-11-2011, 01:57 AM
Problems I've Encounter.

timed missions, WTF

during the mission the cops intervene to where you Bribe Them to go on with the mission, but pull the gun out, the cops back at you, but this time, sometimes, Shooting At You:mad:.

"We Got A Homicide", says the cops, WTF, its not a Homicide, i'm in the Middle Of A Mission:mad:.

so Now You Got Enemies plus Cops Shooting At You, its either you Die or Survive.

Old post I know, but since people still play and come here for questions...

That level is actually easy once you figure out where the enemies come from and thier tendencies.

What I found to be easiest was to pull my car straight in past the 1st car until you hit the garage doors. Park it right up against those at an angle, and it will provide cover from both sides you get shot from. From here, you also have a straight shot (headshots BOOM!) at the first 4 guys that are standing in between the 2 open sections.

You just kill those, run and blow up one of the cars in the next cubby, then run back to your car and kill the people coming. Once done, do the same for the next. Then snipe the guy on the stairs leading down on the other side of the courtyard, and the TWO guys behind the last ISW 508. (I kept thinking there was only one, only to be killed the second I walked up to the car)/

The DLC is boring, I’ll agree to that. The complete lack of a story plus there is no personalization, I mean I don’t know jack about Jimmy so why would I care if he gets his vengeance?

As for the other complaints, the cops are easy enough to outrun, the only time I’ve been caught is when I decided to stop. In many cases its advantageous to stop and pay the fine then go about your business. Bribing them removes any wanted level on your clothing and car and its usually faster to give them $200 then to changes clothes and license plates. Also if it’s at the end of the mission you simply have to get to the safe zone and hit X, after that the cops who were chasing you simply go away.

As for the timed aspect, I never got close to running out of time unless it was one where you have to pick up a car and drive it somewhere, those can get close but there usually isn’t anything else to do anyway. Any mission that involved gunfire always had tons of extra time on the clock when I got done.

Lastly about the cops getting involved in the shootouts, just kill them too. Usually there’s only a couple around anyway so a few more bullets don’t matter much, you’re going to end up with a shoot-on-sight wanted level most times anyway. Unless there scripted to show up in the mission you’re only going to get whatever few happen to be wondering around the area anyway.

I’ve played it on easy, medium and hard and other than how fast you die there is no real difference in the difficulty of the missions.

Things I hate...
1. The money I spent on it.
2. Too many missions are timed.
3. And everything else not covered by #1 and #2.

Guess I am in the minority... I really enjoyed it. Granted, I got the DLC as part of the directors cut, so at no extra cost, but it was a great reason to go back to Mafia II. I didn't find the timer to be an issue at all (plenty of time on all but one of the theft missions) and the cops... well so what, they get pissed off when you pull out a gun and start firing at it. Pretty sure that would be emulated in real life. I do agree though that it would be nice to be able to bribe in advance.

The cops screwed the missions. 90% of them, at least.
And the achievs. Ridiculous.
