Mafia 2

Just finished it this morning after a marathon session of gaming. I really enjoyed it, the settings, the mood, the environments, I was totally lost in the era.

That being said, the devs need to remember, as devs need to be reminded on occasion, that while we want a world simulator, we do not want a MUNDANE world sim.

So out of 16 Hours, I spent maybe 10 hrs driving from place to place, 2 hrs in cutscenes, and 4 in gameplay. At least it felt that way.

Sometime I would leave a cutsecene, to drive and go into another cutscene, to drive back home and end the mission. lol.

I play for story not for gameplay though (been gaming for 28 yrs) so I have played EVERY concievable type of game. So in that regard, it was a stunning success.

Well acted, great writing, although the Hero's journey had a weird twist that I never really believed.


All in all, a great experience.

Let them HATE, so long as they fear.
The Imperium is as a gargantuan creature, dying slowly and in great pain, too massive to realise it is as yet a lumbering corpse.
