In an era when video games are moving away from relying on cinematics for storytelling, Mafia II draws on the rich mobster film history to weave a gripping drama about family, friendship, loyalty, betrayal, and pragmatism. If you’re fond of quoting Don Corleone and Tony Soprano, don’t miss this game.

Mafia II's exciting action and uncompromising mob story make for an impressive and violent adventure.

We understand the tightrope any game walks between narrative cohesion and player freedom, and Mafia II makes its choice clear. As a result, its best aspects are exceptional, but we can’t help but think that it could’ve offered so much more.

Mafia II is a solid little game that’ll give you a fun ride – just don’t expect the world.

Mafia 2 is, to put it mildly, a tightly controlled experience, to an extent that may be a little shocking to those of us who've become acclimated to the freedom of most open world games.

I find the joystiq review odd because the same thing they slender was what they praised in LA Noire. Anyway its a good game you are free to do what you like but the downside is the difference from the demo to the actual game is a longer main story campaign
