- Review: Mafia II
Mafia 2 is 2K Czech's latest attempt at translating the stylish and violent world of organised crime into a third person shooter. It tries to make us an offer that we can't refuse- and almost does thanks to some excellent set pieces, despite a few flaws. Vito's stereotypical rise to power is an impressive and engrossing tale, with combat handled with some solid and familiar third person mechanics that frequently feel a little stiff. The city looks pretty enough, but seems strangely empty and lifeless compared to its peers. Luckily several fantastic moments add some real originality and flavour to the piece; and if you're looking for a solid mob-themed slice of shooting action, you could do a lot worse than checking this one out.
