Storyline of Mafia 2.....Amazing and interesting!!!

The game will begin with your character, Vito, returning home from World War II. Vito had used a military tour as a way of ducking jail time for a botched robbery. Vito reunites with his old friend, Joe Barbaro, and the two quickly take up a living in the criminal underworld. The game tells the story of their friendship, with a boasted 2 hours of game cut scenes. The original game, Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven, had a screenplay of 400 pages, opposed to the 700 pages of this upcoming game, expected to overshadow the original title. Daniel Vavra, the writer and director of the original and the sequel discusses the new angle of the game stating, "The old game was a tribute to gangster movies, a romantic vision.. Mafia 2 is grittier, real, a darker world, and the effects are based in reality". The Official Playstation Magazine says "A high body count is still promised in this tale set in a fictional city 'inspired by' New York of the 1940s and '50s, but those casualties will come the hard way- through small-scale operations rather than mass firefights.

The game is a drama. It tells how to become "made", how to become a wiseguy, and how to screw it all up. These screw-ups will be on you as the player, and the game includes several situations where you can decide the outcome, and your choice will lead to one of several different endings.

Vito's criminal ascension starts with Mikey, a mechanic who gets an earful from Joe for getting his greasy fingers all over Joe's clean jacket. Mikey also needs a certain type of car to chop for parts, and will pay $400 for one that the police are not tailing. Soon enough, Vito, Joe, and Henry (already a made guy) find themselves battling with, for, against, and around three crime factions: the Falconi, Vinci, and Clemente families.
