Should have mine thursday, i've heard its very linear though which pisses me off.
Totally linear mate and no interaction in what happens at all.

You can piss about in the city, but there is absolutely no need and if you fuck up you have to start the mission again. Even nicking cars is a bit of a bore as there isnt much difference between them and once you have the sportscar you need nowt else.

Pretty let down by it in all honesty. It doesn't even feel like your "in" the Mafia all the way through it but just doing some missions for some fellas.

I also found it to be buggy as fuck. Fell through the world about 20 times, had it crash about 10 times, had pre arranged spawns not happen, had doors that are meant to open/get smashed become indestructible. Makes it more annoying when the saves through the missions are scarces as fuck and if you fall through the world you have to do everything all over again..

Mind, around mission 13 is a good twist tho for all those that played the first one. Has one of the old characters in it which was pretty cool, wont spoil it by saying which one but he is easily recognisable.

mafia 1 was the same, what did you expect?
Never played Mafia 1 so from what I had seen it look an open world type game with lots of side missions etc.

Might cancel it quick then and just wait for Halo Reach.

Demo was excellent on the pc. Console versions were predictably shit.

I don't know whether I like the Playboy magazines. I'm addicted to collecting things in games but I normally play infront of others, but you know... tits.
My PC needs far too much of an upgrade to get this so I'll have to get the PS3 version once I have some cash (I hate being a student again)
 
cant say im really enjoying this
the clothes choices are shite
the aiming is shite
the driving is shite
the guns so far are shite

not much going for it

Ah right, demo was a bit let down. Think this could be a major fail for what should be a good game.

My brief opinion of the game is that it gets better as it goes on. ;)
Im up to chapter 3, so far i have to say from what i was expecting of piss poor shooting a controls on both driving and walking, it surprisingly does well, not overly complicated and very easy to get to grips with, im not that far so ill plough on but it does seem very good so far with some fucking hysterical one liners.
 
upto chapter 11 now, had it for a few more days since its been leaked onto internet

gets much more interesting half way through but the story so far is very predicatable and its far too easy to die even on easy
