You play Tommy Angelo, a mobbed up cab driver-cum-cugine. The game is about the daily life of a foot soldier from the depression era 1930's working the streets for your boss, "Don" Salieri.
The many missions you complete are tough enough to give any new associate the "agita" and make you "oobatz".
More than 60 vehicles are available to drive through the 12 square miles of the city. A Model T, a Roadster, delivery trucks and the like are all at your disposal. Stop your car and get out whenever and wherever you want. Don't be a jamook! Watch the cops or they will pinch you for stealing cars, running stop signs, and speeding, so be careful, INCONSPICUOUS and and most of all, keep the Omerta (vow of silence)!
Use weapons to shakedown, clip, whack, pop, or burn anyone your boss, underboss and capo have put out a contract out on. Hold up a bank, dump bodies and lots of other great mafia stuff! You get to use such weapons as a cool Tommy gun, a Smith & Wesson model 27 Magnum, a pump-action shotgun, a baseball bat to beat someone mezza morta (half-dead), and even throw some Molotov cocktails.
You lucky devil! You even have a "goomah". A hot chick named Sarah.
The graphics on this game are just completely amazing! The handling of the various vehicles is quite realistic, great practice sessions to start you out, shooting/re-loading is excellent, and overall storyline is the best!
I highly recommend this game! Especially if you are a fan of 3rd person play, "The Godfather" movies "Goodfellas" or the hit TV show, "The Sopranos".
Be a wiseguy, TODAY!
