Getting bored after 10 minutes and I've been thinking of quitting gaming altogether. Dead Space has shown me its that not that gaming is getting boring. Its just that in the few years we've be become inundated by a swatch of truly overpriced bad AAA games. Dead Space is classic and 10/10 for me.
I think anyone who doesn't find this game enjoyable is a stick in the mud.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.9Sep 13, 2011This game has too much driving from point A to B that can take as long as driving in real life. Its just an excuse for pointless filler. IfThis game has too much driving from point A to B that can take as long as driving in real life. Its just an excuse for pointless filler. If you took that out, this game doesn't have much actual set pieces that game play takes in.
The story is nice. but the driving gets in the way of the progression of the story. It doesn't make any sense why they would design such a large cityscape, but have it confined to such linearity. The game lacks a save system to further drive that design goal home.
As a sequel to the original mafia it ends up being a bit of disappointment. Albeit this game was probably affected negatively by being a console port as the gunplay scenarios seem easy and dumbed down with a whack a mole cover system, which is becoming very common nowadays for console games. (apparently console whiners historically never liked a challenge and in fact Mafia 1 was criticized by the console players for being too hard back 10 years ago.) . Its a sad entry into gaming that developers are catering to these whiners.… Expand

- The radiosity was really bad. Lacked color bounce and soft shadows I found that to be hurting the immersion of the game. - The hacking puzzles although maby good on paper, became really annoying and I started to begrudge them.
- The AI was stupid and predictable like the AI I've seen on similar PSone games made 10 years ago like syphon filter or metal gear.
By the time I got to the China hub, I lost interest completely and stopped playing. That was like a week ago. still haven't finished the game. I feel like I just wasted my 50 dollars.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.4Sep 9, 2011Its a fun but repetitive game. But it hasn't aged well. Its starting to look rough around the edges. If you can fool yourself to thinking itIts a fun but repetitive game. But it hasn't aged well. Its starting to look rough around the edges. If you can fool yourself to thinking it looks good you probably can get several hundred of hours of addicted playing out of this, else it will feel more like a repetitive slog because the environments look very bland. This looks like a game that worried too much about hardware budgets , or was developed on a tight budget itself. Not much is textured properly and there is too many details missing from the scenes. For example, their idea of a store is a room with an empty shelve and a block looking cabinet with a register on it, and no other details you'd see in a store. The good side, being a MP game, its still alive currently and finding a game is not too hard. The game also appears to be still be supported regularly by the creator Valve with recently now the l4d campaigns being added into the game.… Expand

This is game that clearly didn't worry too much about hardware budgets. Its an example of what a real game should be.. A work of art and story that will age well. The Remedy guys did a top job on creating this.… Expand
