    Link: Mafia II - Went on sale yesterday. What do you think IABers look good enough for $60.00?

    Played the demo on steam.
    It`s alright.
    I wouldn`t activly go out and buy it, but if I had spare money and wanted a game, that would be it.

    Looks interesting, but I don`t have a computer that can handle this type of game. Mostly because I don`t play this type of game, but you know...

    Civilization V goes on sale Sept. 21st in the US, 24th worldwide. And it`s only $50.00.
    Personally I`d rather get Civ 5, but if I had enough money I`d also be interested in Mafia II. Looks pretty cool.

    Completed last chapter yesterday. Acting and graphics are great. Story is ok, but ending sucks. It feels like the game just stops mid-chapter, waiting for you to pay for the real ending in form of DLCs or maybe Mafia 3. Also, Vito regenerates like Wolverine from X-men or Torque from The Suffering if you`re playing with all good choices.
    Spoilers:
    Demo level is a part of 5th chapter with some minor differences. You will kill Tommy Angelo from the first game in 14th chapter. Cars are the only form of transportation and there isn`t a lot of them. Derek is behind Vito`s father`s death. You lose all your money twice and all your clothes once. There is no free roam and no free ride extreme. And again, ending is awful.

    $60?! I do not care how good the game is, $60 is ridiculous! We will have to stick with the new Gears of War and Left 4 Dead 2 until the price goes down.

    I actually like the idea on making threads on recent game releases.

    Anyway I played the demo and I might buy it just for the fifties setting. I love that decade, and from what I played everything seems very accurate and detailed. Yeah, apparently it`s not really a free roam game and I`m not a big fan of mafia stories, but the work they`ve done on the setting is astounding.

    That said I`m still waiting for the price to drop a bit. It`s good, but not £40 good.

    Well, I made it to chapter 7, stole some cars and made $4,000 thinking I could quit out and my progress might have saved, but I end up starting the chapter over with no money and none of the cars I collected. I gave the game another chance, but after attempting to steal some more cars, getting caught when I know I shouldn`t be caught I`m done with this game.

    I didn`t enjoy the earlier chapters, but I was hoping to give it another chance but I can`t find one redeeming quality about this game.

    Great if someone else likes it, we all have different tastes but to be honest too when I play games I play them to escape reality for a couple of hours, not act it out in a virtual world.

    Is it really $60? I`ve been watching Achievement Hunter playing it, and it looks great, but 60 seems like waaay to much! Why have video game prices exploded so much lately?

    New games that are supposed to be decent are always around $60 when they first come out, so it`s not really a change.

    It`s Grand Theft Auto in the 50`s. Same exact story, plot, gameplay style, and everything.

    Guy comes to a new "world", works his way up in the ranks, makes hits, very undefined, stoic character.

    Still, looks good.

    It`s $60 because it has about as many developers as people who are going to buy it. So each developer gets $60 for slaving over a computer night and day for months. This $60 will go a long way to prove to each developer`s parents that they did the right thing mortgaging the house to put the kid through a liberal-arts school to get a degree in video game design.

    No, it`s not the exact same thing.
    The story is much deeper and I think it`s more interesting than GTA.

    This game is absolutely amazing. It was well worth the 60 dollars. Deep Story, Great Voice Acting, Fun missions, Great Gun Play. The only thing I think I`d change is the facial expression when you die and when getting hit by a car one just get kinda keeps the same stance and just kinda gets pushed outta the way. Still very very minor things. The goods Overwhelm the bad.

    My BF wants it and he`s a hardened gamer. I think it`s even on his Steam wishlist... Something tells me it`s gonna be so good that when he gets it he`s going to stop all domestic things and just play that. (Bah it`s like Fallout 3 all over again...)

    No games without a solid multiplayer is worth 60$ nowadays.

    Fallout 3 being the exception because of all the DLC they came out with to extend the game.

    Dont even get me started on how the game developers rape people for the DLC, intentionally leaving it out of the game just to release it 2 months later for 10-15$ extra.

    Go to your local video store, rent it for 5 days, and beat it. There are no side missions or anything. You`ll become bored after you beat it. I finished it in 2 days.

    Truely not worth even $20 i have the PS3 version and even though the DLC isn`t bad the fact is the 360 version actually has blood in it while the PS# doesn`t have much. blood aside i beat this game and unlocked all trophies on my first playthrough while i had the difficulty on hard to start. game is incredabley easy and is only good for a day of game play since that is how long it took me to beat it and i really wasn`t even trying to beat the game.

    P.S another problem i had was money is truely useless you never need to buy guns since the weaponry is limited and modding cars isn`t even fun until halfway through the game where you are flat broke due to the story.
