Just Cause 2 has a LOT more lasting appeal. Mafia II is (forgive the pun) criminally short.

I second the Just Cause 2 choice.


Both games are good sandboxes, but Just Cause 2 have far longer lasting gameplay, and is not a GTA clone.

Mafia 2's storyline is honestly, one of the most amazing I've played. (I'm a sucker for mob stories). I'd go with Mafia 2, plus the general atmosphere of the game is really cool.

Mafia II. The story and how it's delivered is top notch.

JC2 if you want to simply blow stuff up for many hours.

I played Mafia II and while it was a good game 75% of the time you just spend driving around the city repetitively... I would go with Just Cause 2

That coupon should be good for both (Mafia II and Just Cause 2) downloads, not just one or the other. If your asking which game is better, I got the same coupon a week ago and have not stopped playing JC2. It is one of the most fun games I've played.
