Mafia 2 12 bucks on Steam

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Mafia 2 is 12 bucks right now in the steam store...I am thinking of pulling the trigger on this just for the simple fact that it is soooo cheap and have heard great reviews on it...I never played the first one...My question is: Does one need to have played the first one to understand the 2nd??

don't need to play the first one to understand it at all.

if you think it's going to end in a free-roam like gta4 (which it feels alot like), don't buy it. once the story is over the game is over. that's it. no online play, and no DLC that adds story at this time.

You can go back to a previous chapter though, than free-roam it..If you wish.
I found no use for the free roam, I just went around killing people for a hour then got bored of it.
I thought Mafia 2 was good at first. but it felt repetitive after a few hours.
It's also not that long, beat it within a day.
