Godfather 2 Trailer
The first one was far too easy IMO so I'd have to rent this one out first before I buy.

Ok, quick lesson for you marney1. When you have a youtube video, get the numbers/letters after the equal sign. Then copy those. Then go to your reply window on this site. Then click to your left where it says "Insert: Youtube" then enter that letter/number combo. Poof. No more fucking links. You can post the actual video.

You fucking noob.

Also, a friend of mine has purchased this and I will be borrowing it soon.

Ah man.

I bought this game. I loved it for a while.
Took over just about everything. All that assbustage was for nothing, because you lose everything about mid story.
Cuba seems tacked on because, much like NYC, you can run across it in no time.
Florida is nice, but c'mon, when is it not? You can't go on the beach though. Because you can't swim, and on top of that there is no animation to drowning, and the water is just...its not water. If you throw someone in it they fall through it into oblivion.
After playing games like COD4, GTA4, and other more realistic games, shooting people gets annoying when it takes two drum rounds from a Thompson SMG to kill someone(who isnt a made guy).
I haven't beat it yet, and I don't know if I will. I've hit the part in the story where I have to take over everything. Which means I'll have to get the stupid ass bulletproof vests and the gun belts.
So I said "fuck it". And let my cousin borrow it.

Other things bother me, like the fact I have an open spot in the family, but every time I talk to a candidate, Dominic says "Sorry, Family's full" Scuse me what? No it isnt.

Other than that, the whole made men thing is pretty sweet. I have three that I got attached to and the go with me everywhere. My Underboss "Bill Bardi" who you recruit early in the game. And my Capos Johnny Rizzo and Leon...ah forgot his last name, it starts with a P though.

You do feel like you're in the movies though, and thats a nice feeling. I kinda like how clothes don't cost anything, you just kinda have everything from the start.
And I like the fact that not every Italian in the game has black hair and brown eyes.
My dad is an Italian, his hair and eyes, much like mine, are Brown and blue. Which you actually see a lot of in the game, I thought that was cool.

Killing made men is....kinda lame. You can order death of your made me, but other than using the Enforcer to get a stealth kill on him, I'm always the one who has to kill him. I wish you could send other made guys to kill the marked ones.

I know that bounced around a little, but in closing.
I don't recommend buying this game. Rent it, and if you REALLY like it...then go buy it.
It ain't bad, but if you played the first one, the second one is just an updated version.
Physics are still the same. In the age of ragdoll and euphoria, this game still uses, for he most part, scripted death animations. (i.e. someone falling to their knees).

So yeah, rent.

I give it a personal 6/10

I don't think I'll even bother to rent it after reading that review. ^

good review tanner... i agree with a lot of your points...

one way to eliminate your made men without you physically doing so is to mark em for death, then send them off to try and take a racket for you... if he dies, he dies... or push him to the ground when you have a couple of your men around you... they'll all start to gang up on him, sometimes bringing about funny remarks... i once threw one of them off a building... that was a cool way to go...

the reason why the family is full is because, you can only recruit soldiers... you can't recruit someone to be a capo, although if you plan on making him one, you have to start him out as a soldier first... you can only recruit until you filled up your 4 soldier slots... if you want more, your gonna have to promote one of them...

one the water: i never saw anything fall through... lol, when i threw a bomb in the water, i hit the surface like it was concrete... stayed there and blew up as if it was on solid ground... lol, the water looked tacky but then again, how often did you look at the water? maybe a handful of times throughout?

and the shooting part: it's arcadish, as is the driving and physics... the game resembles very much an old playstation shooter... it's not realistic because apparently, that wasn't the direction they wanted to go with it... they weren't going for realism... they were going for the old san andreas feel... i do like the targeting system though, its one of the better ones... the ability to shoot em in the knees to drop em to their knees, or the ability to shoot em in the shoulder to make em drop their gun... and man, the executions were fun!!

i did beat this game monday... and got a platinum trophy to boot... easily one of the easiest platinum trophies i'll pry ever earn...

Oh, good one. The "you're on the internet so you must have no life" insult isn't moronic or unoriginal at all. You must, without a doubt, be a very important member of society, not at all a waste of the already barely valuable gift of life.

As is the case for everyone who takes issue with people who make them sad on the internet, you are one of two kinds of people:

You are exactly what you claim I am, and that is a lonely, pathetic basement dweller. You life is spent eating eight pounds of junk food per day, masturbating to anything you find online that's even remotely feminine, and wishing you had good looks and social skills. You continue to live with your mother until she dies of a combination of lung cancer and liver failure brought on by the chain-smoking and heavy drinking she used to cope with what a failure you are. Your mother mercifully dead and free of the living embodiment of failure she regretfully thrust from her loins, the bills start to pile up and you, unemployed and unable to pay these bills (of course), lose the house and everything in it. Somehow even more of a failure than you already were, you wander from place to place eating out of dumpsters and sleeping in your own filth until you finally die of AIDS, which you contracted from a diseased whore you scrounged up enough money to pay for, so you could finally lose your virginity while at the same time pretending that your mother was back in your life.

Or:

You are the type who was an athlete in high school, who was genetically doomed to be an idiot but managed to finish school and even get a college scholarship because you were so good at a worthless children's game. You went off to college with a suitcase full of polo shirts and condoms, the polo shirts, because you're a douche, and the condoms to prevent you from impregnating the dim-witted young college girls whom you could never touch without the aid of Rohypnol, a drug you refer to as "roofies" because you can neither spell or pronounce Rohypnol. You scrape by with borderline D's for the next four years, and leave the campus to go out into the real world where your realize you're not intelligent or talented enough to do anything of value with your life. Misery and minimum wage ensues for thirty years, then you blow your brains out, and your corpse, alone and forgotten, is not discovered until the smell of rotting flesh seeps under your door and your bodily fluids finally soak through the floor of your studio apartment and into the room below you. Your body is cremated, the ashes scraped into a garbage bin because there was no one in your life who valued you enough to pay for a casket, funeral, or burial plot.

You're undoubtedly one of the two, otherwise you would have better things to do than complain about the theme of a forum that doesn't care about anything you have to say.

I know how the family works haha, remember there is like 10000 videos you have to watch during the game.

Here is my tree.



Yet the family is still full.

tsk tsk.

And for shits and giggles, heres my crew.



And yes, I'm aware I said my cousin was borrowing it. I happened to look over and see it on my dresser. I guess he didn't come get it.

Anyway, would like to point out something about the made men.
Instead of when you kill them and they stay dead, when you kill them, they respawn again at the place you recruited them.

GAAAAAYYY. Im sorry. This game has just gone from shit to shittier.

I know like you said Bones, they aren't going for realism, but for fucks sake they should. I want a brutal Mafia game damnit! angry.gif

then fucking wait for mafia 2 then!! laugh.gif...

if i took a picture of my crew, they all would look the same... the bulletproof vests cover up anything they are wearing, which is GAY... couldn't they put the vest underneath their shirts?! why does it have to be over the clothes so when my don speaks to michael, he's wearing a fucking bullet-proof vest... gheesh...

i'll have to take a pic of my dominic though... he looks like a don biggrin.gif... maybe i'll blow up one of my diamond factories so i can get rid of that damn vest for the photo biggrin.gif...
