There is one type of scene that always seems to draw my attention in the world of video games. No, it isn’t exactly the horror, racing, or shoot-em-up rampage that you’ve all come to expect from this day and age in gaming. Enter the scene of the gangster, Mafia II to be more exact, where you take on the role of an Italian gangster in a free roam world.
Who wouldn’t want to step into the shoes of a gangster in the era of luxury, sexy cars, and money? As you start into Mafia II you play as Vito, the son of an Italian immigrant who comes back from WWII to find that things have changed. But have they changed for the better? You the player will just have to find out!
Throughout the game you complete a number of odd jobs, family related activities, and heists. Along the way you meet the right people, make the right connections, and get made. Life is a hell of a lot sweeter on the good side of the gun.
I highly recommend picking this up for any console as it provides a new twist on the free roam genre. It also feeds the need for sexy cars and guns in a stylish fashion so gamers of all types can pick this up and enjoy it to the fullest!
So, what are you waiting for? Welcome to the Family.
