Definitely Joe’s adventure. In a nutshell, it tells the story of what Joe did while Vito was in prison. Jimmy’s vendetta was ok, but there was no real story and personally, I felt no connection to Jimmy seeing as he played no part in the main story.

If its true that what you donít know cant hurt you, then you must be practically invincible!

Wow, these DLC need a price drop.

I paid less for the main game than these two DLC combined...

Definitely Joe's adventures - it fills in the storyline nicely, taking place while Vito is in prison in the main story.

Joe's Adventures without a doubt. It has an interesting story and doesn't feel low budget like Jimmy's Vendetta. Jimmy's Vendetta feels very tacked-on with an arcade style, no story/cut scenes, and the fact that he happens to have all the same homes as Vito. JA is much more fleshed out and it worth the 10$.

Joe's Adventure, like everyone says. I got both of the DLC's for cheap on one of the sales and finally got around to playin' the game and getting all the achievements.

Even though Joe's adventure wasn't too big on the story tellin', it atleast filled in a few pieces of the story revolving around the main one. I would have liked to see a bit more cutscenes and the like for Joe, but I enjoyed it. The Achievements ain't too hard to get compared to Jimmy's Vendetta.

Jimmy's Vendetta, in my opinion was made by some miserable person who didn't want to come to work that week (Or month) and decided to take it out on everyone who purchased it by having players assume that they'd get a new character to play as and learn about, only to realize that you're pretty much playing a free roam version of Mafia 2 with a different skin (Some balding generic bad ass) doing tedious shootout missions with flash cards barely filling you in as to what's going down.

If you're going to the achievements, prepare to grind. Two of 'em are sadistic (But doable through glitches) and it just makes you hate this DLC offering even more. I almost wish I never bought it.

Long story short? Joe's Adventures.

Joe's Adventure by far. The other DLC is annoying as hell and not to mention the achievements.

Achievements completion : 99,53%
Gamerscore completion : 99,55%
Retail games completed : 84/87
I'm a completionist!!!

Currently working on Halo MCC, Assassin's Creed 4 Black Flag on X1.

If you send a friend request or game invite, please send a message telling what or why, otherwise I will just ignore it

I just played the game. I assumed Jimmy's Vendetta was the first of the two to be released so I played it first. Wrong move, it was totally disjointed from the main story. No character development etc. Play Joe's Adventure first. It could have been part of the main game, but I guess they need there dlc money lol.
