Any Games Like Mafia 2 ?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Before any of you bash on me, I am a big fan of Illusion Software’s Mafia 1, and after 8 – 7 years of waiting for Mafia 2, in 2010 when I finally got my hands on this butchered up half decent sequel from 2K I was very disappointed. The game that was supposed to end around 1957 and have multiple endings, (one of them that was supposed to with Vito killing Leo and later shot dead by the cops) Everything, was cut so badly and later those cuts were made into Jimmy DLC’s, and when Daniel Vevara left, it all sickened me. (I told you I was a big Mafia 1 fan tongue.gif), But I still enjoyed the game enough.

Anyhow, after all that being said; My question is, are there any other games like mafia and mafia 2 I could play? Good storylines (not over the top GTA stuff), decent or great music compositions, you know the Mafia 2 kind of games set around the era and so on. So far similar games I have played include Mafia 1, Mafia 2, The Saboteur(2010), Godfather 1 was okay, Godfather 2 sucked, LA Noire (waiting for the PC version).

Can't really think of any gangster themed games that match the caliber of Mafia 1.

Glad you said you hated Mafia II, tho. I came in here with the intention of leaving snarky comments after seeing the title. tongue.gif

Lol...Thanks, ya I didnt like that game because it was not what me, you and the rest of the fan base expected it to be, but i enjoyed playing it but it could have been so much more. it could have been a masterpiece like the first one.

Are there any other games people like you and I can look up to (other than the upcoming LA Noire for PC) ? I dont mind a couple of years wait, just something with similer era theme to look up to.




Anybody else wana have a go?

No Mafia fans here? Or everybody is a COD / BF freak now a days?

Honestly there's not much out there... the only other game I could say has anything related to the mafia is Max Payne 1 and 2. Both are heavy on story and dark like the Mafia series is.
