Steam sale Mafia II

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I have a question for you guys. With the Steam sale on all Mafia games and Mafia DLC at 75% off, is Mafia II a good buy at $7.50? If this is a duplicate thread, I apologize. Please share your thoughts on the game and price. Thanks.

Yes. at $7.50, it is definitely worth the buy. The story is pretty compelling and interesting IMO.

Have you seen the Godfather, Goodfellas, and other mafia movies? If so, you have experienced the game. I got it for free with my graphics card, and it was a big disappointment. You spend the majority of your time answering the phone, putting on clothes, exit your apartment, walk down the stairs to the garage, get a car, and drive to a meeting with your higher ups. After that, you go somewhere else and shoot people. Then you have to drive all the way back to your apartment, walk back up 3 sets of stairs, and go to sleep.

Looks great, though.

Oh good, now Mafia 2 is the price it should've been at launch. Half the price for half a game. Warning: cliffhanger at the end + a thousand DLCs.

I thought it was good. I grabbed it back when Amazon had the digital copy on sale for $12.50 last holiday season (and days later, Steam had it on sale for the same price, but hey, it's a Steam only game so I got it there either way).

It has some console-centric features (cover system, regenerating health, and I think no quick save), but otherwise, I liked it, and I don't have a thing for the mafia (and a certain chapter's scene became a skip). What grabbed me was the atmosphere/story. The characters aren't too deep, but not too shallow. The end isn't a cliffhanger. It's just how the mafia style stories go (or so I was told). There's even a few sad/touchy feely parts (at least to me).

There's alot of DLC, but I didn't get any of it it and the game was fine. It's just two really that have stories/missions, and it's side stuff. The rest are stuff like cars/clothes, not at all essential. They add to the game, but it doesn't feel missing without it (not that the game is real long, but it's okay enough in that regard).

There is alot of driving. That's my one major complaint with the game, but the atmosphere, something really lacking in today's games, and decent story alone make it up. All in all, not a bad game, but not perfect. For $7.50, I'd say yeah, go for it.

I bought it from Amazon for $12.50 as well and definitely don't regret paying that much. I am not a big fan for single player, but since I loved the Godfather game, I wanted to check this out. It had one of the best story lines I have played. Unfortunately there is no free play, so when you finish the story you are done, unless you download the free play mod. The end of the story does leave you hanging, and I would hope they continue it. If you like Mafia type stuff, then buy it.
