Mafia II is upon us and ushering in a new era of wise guys and made men. If you've been waiting for this one, there is good news ? the game is fun. Having shootouts in bars while bottles explode and glass flies, finding a mob hacking your friend to death, and going to brothels are all great times. Still, those moments aren't the entire game, and the accompanying parts hurt the whole...Mafia II casts you as Vito Scaletta, a young Italian who returns from World War II to find his mother and sister on the hook to a loan shark. Like any gangster in a gangster movie, Vito decides he doesn't want a subpar life of the slums and goes down the organized crime route to make some cash. You'll be with Vito as he whacks dudes, steals cars and tries on all sorts of snazzy outfits...When you're not using a Tommy Gun or pistol, you get the job done with your fists. These are set sections ? and there are a ton of them early in the game -- where Vito needs to knock out his opponents. Again, it sounds cool and is used really well in an unexpected prison section, but the mechanics are nothing special ? in fact, they're eye-rollingly basic. You hold the dodge button until the opponent gives you the chance to land a light or heavy attack. Repeat the stiff animations and curse the camera from there until you win...Mafia II is an interesting mobster tale with some great voice acting and cool cutscenes; if you have a "made man" itch, feel free to scratch it here, but be prepared for a pretty standard third-person shooter in the gameplay department. The "take cover, kill everyone, do it again" mechanic didn't wow me, but it didn't let me down either...Mafia II is a solid little game that'll give you a fun ride ? just don't expect the world.
