Ok let me say first that this game had ALOT of bugs. Doors not opening, "saving game" sign in corner of screen that wont go away, cars flying through the air (only got that 1 time), all of which forced me to quit then re-insert the disk to continue playing. Mind you I got this game NEW from gamelfy NOT used.
That being said the bugs in this game weren't so unforgivable that you couldnt appreciate a good game. (Though a little beta testing might have been a good idea)
This game is basically a watered down GTA4. Ok player models with dull surounding, actions and driving controls a bit stiff, and music that would drive anyone other than my grandmother absolutly crazy! Though the game does create a rather effective 1940-50's feel and the blood throughought the game looks great.
All in all the story is nothing special and was typical of any mafia game to date. Thankfully it was good enough to were I wanted to keep playing (as most sandbox games make me want to just run around shooting everything). Expect alot of driving as there was no teleporter in the game. Also dont expect to do to many things at your own liesure as the game is constantly telling you were to go and what to do. Unlike GTA4 were you do missions in any order you like.
SO my advice is this game is a rent not a buy BUT its a decent rent I'll give it that....

I really want to love this game. I have been playing off and on for three days and I am into the story line but I just want more from this game. I do not need it to be GTA but I would like a litte side action. This is why I use gamefly. I was so stoked this game was coming out. I like it just fine but it does not have the replay power for me to pay 60 bucks for it.
