Mafia 2′s “Jimmy’s Vendetta” Dated and Detailed + Achievements

JIMMYMAFIA2 590x328 Mafia 2s Jimmys Vendetta Dated and Detailed + Achievements

Closing up for the day.

If you’re like me, and you’re a fan of the great Mafia 2, you’ll be happy to know that the first DLC for the title, Jimmy’s Vendetta, is coming next Tuesday, September 7. It will be available for the PS3, 360 and PC for $9.99 or 800 Microsoft points.

Here’s the part that is particularly interesting: The DLC adds leaderboards, and contains more than 30 quests… there’s barely more than 30 quests in the entire boxed version of the game! Anyway, here’s the description from 2K:

“Jimmy’s Vendetta” takes players into an alternate perspective of the mob through the eyes of Jimmy, the guy the other guys call when they need to finish the job. Players will get their hands dirty helping Jimmy clean up other people’s messes as they deal with the Italian and Irish mobsters that reside in Empire Bay. As players progress, a slew of new quests are unlocked, including assassination and timed vehicle pursuits ending in dramatic shootouts and explosive car chases. Execute with deadly head shots or charged explosives, and rack up points for precision-timed vehicular power slides, lofty jumps, and supercharged velocity. Multipliers and combos add bonus points to overall scores that will be immediately posted to the new online leaderboard system, providing extensive re-playability as players work to rise to the top of the ranks.”

I found Mafia 2 to be a complete and satisfying game, well worth its price, but I have to wonder if part of the plan for this title was to sell you the “world” of Mafia 2, and then charge you extra for the gameplay. Essentially, selling you the handle for the razor, and then charging more for the blades. If so, it’s kind of brilliant and welcome. If the story of Jimmy’s Vendetta is as compelling as the story in the boxed copy of the game, I’m totally on board for this DLC, and the next.
