Default I am addicted

I bought Mafia this weekend for ps2.

This game is better than the GTA series.

It's story line is awesome, the missions are challenging, but not impossible, and the graphics are really good too.

The only down fall is that the control is a little strange, but I got used to it.

I don't know if any of you guys have this game, but if you don't, go get it.

My new daily routine:
Go to school
Play Mafia all day and night
Go to sleep

Another reason why kids bring guns to school.

What are members of the mafia doing in a church anyway?

I know.

Yes, it is kind of like the GTA games, exept it is not a free roam game like the GTA games.

Buckeye, also, hip and cool are fine

The game also reminds me of Miller's Crossing.

I think that some of the characters and events were based on that movie.

The GTA games seem to be based on scarface. A lot of places, music, and cars are taken from that movie.

Mafia takes place in the 1920s.
