Mafia 2 User Reviews
Born the son of a poor immigrant, Vito is a beaten down Italian American who is trying to escape the life of poverty that consumed his childhood. It was on the streets that Vito learns that joining the Mafia is the only route to wealth and respect for people of his standing. Wanting to escape the life of hardship that his father led, he dreams about becoming a “Made Man.”
A petty criminal his whole life, Vito, along with his childhood friend, Joe, will descend into the world of organized crime. Together, they will work to prove themselves to the Mafia as they try to make their names on the streets. Starting with low-level jobs like robbery and stealing cars, Vito and Joe escalate quickly up the Mafia family ladder…but the life as a wise guy isn’t quite as glamorous as it seems.

Mafia 2 broke the Guinness World Record for the most number of times a video game uses the "f-word". The "f-word" is used over 200 times by many characters in the game. The YouTube channel "Rooster Teeth" posted a video displaying proof that the game really did break the record.
In the mission "Buzzsaw", Joe made a comment about Vito being able to heal so quickly while they were on their way to send Henry to El Greco. This is a clear reference to the game's regenerating health system, which brings a player's health back to normal despite being hit by bullets several times.
Leone Galante: Sorry, kid. Joe wasn't the part of our deal.
While looking for Leo Galante in the jail courtyard, you can listen in on other inmates' conversations. If you listen in on a group of Chinese inmates they will say lines from the popular internet meme "All your base are belong to us" like: "Somebody set up us the bomb"
