Finished - what a great game

Just finished this game. It was one that flew under the radar imo. One of the best games I've played, thoroughly enjoyable. I'd recommend it very highly due to its great voice acting, engrossing story and great graphics. The ending icbs also one of the best and without giving anything away, leaves it open for Maffia 3 (or does it?). Got mine for 20 new from Tesco so should be able to find for less. Enjoy.

I, too, enjoyed this game. I did not have any of the DLC, but it was still very fun IMO.

I got the classics edition with all the DLC for 15 a week or so ago. I've already completed it on PC and thought it was great, second time over it's just as good.

Why is wise to start the game on hard difficulty?

I also really enjoyed the game,
and after playing mafi 1 before a long time ago it was so great.

Why no Oscar for games :-D .

For all who didnt play Mafia 1, you have to to find out the perfect story of mafia 2 :-)

Yeah, it is really GREAT game. But ends very dramatically. ((((
There is must be Joe Barbara in Mafia III, which begins with his escape.

Great game indeed. I truly enjoyed it. It was my first rent from Gamefly. It's been on my radar since it came out, but I never wanted to buy it because its so short. I loved driving around a lot even though others may find it mundane. I loved the story and missions. Just a great, fun, simple game that is quite enjoyable.

Played up to Chapter 14 and so far this game is awesome. Certainly does Mafia 1 credit. Can't wait to start the DLC too once I'm done (I bought the classics pack). Although I seem to recall the cops being far more observant in Mafia 1. I've gone through countless red lights etc. in Mafia 2 and only Joe seems to notice!

I enjoyed the Godfather also, mainly because of the huge amount of side missions and ease of going into freeplay. But this game had a much better story IMO.

If you want to get all the achivements in one playthru, then you can do so by beating it on hard first. I played it on easy first though, mainly because I wanted to enjoy the game and the story before enjoying a challenge.

If you beat it on hard first, then it is pretty short. But if you go hard->easy, then it's a decent length. But throw all 3 DLC's into the mix, and it is actually quite the lengthy game.

LOL, yeah they never go after you for that. Heck, you can even speed and they wont pull you over unless you go 10 over the limit. Or get to 20mph over, jam on the brakes, then speed, jam on the brakes, etc and they wont pull you over either.

Gr8 game and very good story line. I found the end fight was easier than the warehouse fight though.

Because it is so damn easy, even for me who isn't used to shooting games.

Yeah i loved this game and its story. So much so it made me enjoy a shooting game. It gets way to much hate IMO. I like it better than all the GTA/Saints Row games. Sometimes linearity is a good thing.

Nice game indeed,
don't know why but i like mafia 1 more than this one.. felt more realistic for me, i was really IN the game, did'n played with thomas but i WAS thomas angelo haha sounds strange maybe but that's how i feel..
i really like the way mafia 2 looks but if mafia 1 was released now it would look also better..
i enjoyed the music from both games tough, nice work from 2K.. i look forward to mafia 3 if it will come and hope it'll be more like the first mafia

Enjoyed it. Bought it when it came out but finished and sold it before the dlc. Recently re bought the classic version with the DLC for 10.

Prefer it to GTAIV.

Just finished it like an hour ago, great game but the ending is so sad.

I too had a lot of fun playing this game including DLCs, maybe except the 1000 miles achievement. But for the rest I recommend this game to any people who like sandbox games.

I completed the game yesterday and I really enjoyed it. I'm not the guy who will get into storylines in videogames but this time, I followed the adventure as if I was in. I liked all the betrayal and friendship also. You really feel that Vito and Joe are friends forever. I'M not used to this type of game (I'm more a racer) and I did not have any difficulty in beating the game on medium. I need some more achievements that I will go for in hope to reach 1000G. Great game! Hope there will be Mafia 3.
