If you are looking to fantasize about becoming a gangster in the 30's or 40's then Mafia 2 is the game you have been desperately searching for. You will join an epic tale of Vito Scaletta as he returns from WW2. He arrives in shock only to find that his mother and sister are in a bit of a pickle. They have gotten involved with a loan shark and need Vito's help desperately. Vito's friend Joe will also aid you through the game, as he fights alongside you.

I think for any mobster video game to be successful it needs to have a good storyline. You will be smearing blood along the streets of Empire Bay, located in New York. This could be from anything from fighting with your fist to pumping lead in your enemies chest with a Tommygun. Mafia 2 delivers in that area and is packed with tons of jaw dropping cut scenes and above average graphics for the 360.

In this game you will completely missions which will bring the story forth. Lots of guns you can buy in gun shops located around the city. There is even a chop shop where you can change your license plates as the cops will pursue you throughout the game. You will even get to join the ladies as Vito and Joe make their presents felt in Empire City.

This game is basically set up as a third person shooter where you are going to crouch behind boxes and open fire on your enemies. Really does give you the impression that you are fighting it out with mobsters in the dirty streets of Empire City. For me one thing that I learned is that you have to pace yourself when playing the game. What I mean by this is you can't just go through the missions and shoot everyone. In fact if you did that you would die all the time, as I did for the first hour. Instead you need to find a good place to take cover and choose your shots wisely.

Just as you find the game getting a little predictable you will find yourself doing other missions that have a fun and exciting twist. For example, one of the missions is to sneak into a guarded compound or even go undercover as a window washer, where you will kill a main character.

The lasting effect of this game is pretty good. You will get about 15 hours of gameplay out of this game with a lot of shooting. The voice work is incredible and the graphics are pretty good for Xbox 360. I would recommend this game to anyone that likes movies such as Goodfellas and Public Enemies.
