Mafia II Captures Trigger-Happy MOB Life

Gamer’s wait to enter the world of organized crime is over, as 2K Games announced today that Mafia II, an epic crime-action tale, is now available for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC. This pistol-packed period piece transports players to Empire Bay, a fully realized and immersive urban cityscape set in America during the 1940s and 1950s. The action unfolds with white-knuckled car chases, explosive gunplay, compelling characters and an engaging narrative set against a backdrop of meticulously detailed period environments that showcase the difference a decade can make in the evolution of music, fashion, advertising and automobiles.


Born the son of a poor immigrant, Vito is a beaten down Italian-American who is trying to escape the life of poverty that consumed his childhood. Vito, along with his lifelong friend, Joe, will descend into the world of organized crime. Looking to escape the life of hardship that his father led, Vito dreams about becoming a “made man,” and together with Joe, will work to prove themselves to the Mafia as they try to make their names on the streets. However, the two quickly realize that life as a wise guy isn’t quite as glamorous as it seems.

Throughout Mafia II, players will be immersed in the music from the most influential artists of the time. Mafia II features more than 100 original licensed songs from the 40’s and 50’s that can be heard blaring from car radios and throughout Empire Bay. Among the most popular offerings of the era are “Ain’t that a Kick in the Head” by Dean Martin, “Boom Boom” by John Lee Hooker, “Mambo Italiano” by Rosemary Clooney, “It Don’t Mean a Thing” by Duke Ellington, and “Manish Boy” by Muddy Waters.

The Mafia II demo, which has been downloaded and immensely enjoyed by millions of gamers around the world, is currently available for free from the PlayStation®Network, Xbox LIVE Marketplace for Xbox 360 and via Steam and select Internet portals for Windows PC.

Mafia II is out now in the US, and will be released on August 26th in Australia and August 27th internationally.

You mean it doesn’t serve your needs as there isn’t enough reviews surrounding gay porn?
