I had played the demo last year when it first came out and while I thought it had a nice feel to it. It wasn't enough for me to rush out and buy it. How wrong was I! Having picked this up recently I haven't been able to put it down. Great storyline, cut scenes that you enjoy watching, nice little touches that you know they have really taken there time with it. Its like GTA but in the 1950's! Its like a great gangster movie, but your not just watching you really feel like your in it! Ok, I think it does fall a little short of what it could have been. It would have been nice to build an empire, your own family, more side missions, be able to buy better homes. But don't get me wrong there is still enough to keep you happy and enjoy this game. But yes could have been truly amazing, but maybe those changes are being saved for Mafia 3! Still, highly recommended, and there is also a lot of downloadable content to enjoy, other storylines etc with est. about additional 8 hours game play. I will be getting that when I finish this game. Recommended for your collection.
