    Brilliant shoot-outs are dulled by maddening side missions in this inconsistent add-on.

    Hardcore completists may appreciate squeezing the last bits out of Empire Bay, but all others should let this aggravating add-on sleep with the fishies. [Feb 2011, p.76]

    Return to Mafia II in yet another unspectacular expansion pack. Joe's Adventure has the potential to be great, but it falls short thanks to boring filler missions, a lack of a checkpoint system and a frustrating timer. And worst of all, it turns out that Joe's adventure is barely worth telling. This is only for the most hardcore Mafia II fans!

    In short, if you enjoyed the original game enough that you would like to experience more of it, than Joe's Adventures is a worthwhile investment.

    Pick it up if Mafia II was your favorite game of 2010, otherwise save your game time and Microsoft Points for something more compelling and enjoyable.

    Joe's Adventure is a little step ahead of the previous DLC, but original problems still remain: missions are flat and your action is quite driven. Anyway, it's always the best Mafia game available and the main character rocks.

    A worthy expansion that takes us deeper in to 2K:s loveley mobster world.
  8. A big chunk of new game and a chance to play as one of Mafia's best characters. [Jan 2011, p.113]
