Mafia Man is yet another attempt at creating a fun and exciting “sandbox” experience, popularized by such titles as Grand Theft Auto III and True Crime Streets of LA. In the game, players take control of Bruno Barzini, an up and coming mobster, working his way up the food chain. The game takes place in a fictional metropolis called Shamville. Players will have a variety of missions to tackle, slowly leading them through the intense and twisting plot. Also like other games in the genre, players take on the missions whenever they feel like it, and have the option of exploring their environment at their leisure in between the core storyline missions. Of course, players will have the ability to commandeer all sorts of vehicles including cars, boats, and even airplanes. While on foot, players will be able to wield a seemingly endless number of weapons including pistols, rocket launchers, and everything in between.
So, there you have it. The introduction to my entry. Things aren't always what they seem, though, eh?
