Game would have been a lot more entertaining if the majority of it didn't consist of this:

*drive 10 minutes across the city listening to dialogue and background music*

*kill/fight/pick up something for one minute*

*drive 10 minutes back to your apartment*

Chopping up the base game into DLC was an exceptionally poor decision considering the games long development span too.

Those complaints, and pretty much every other complaint about Mafia 2, could be leveled on the first game which was considered a masterpiece at the time.

I loved Mafia 2. It's not a game for everyone though, certainly... more about immersion than gameplay. The original was exactly the same though.
The first game had better writing. That's crucial. The characters were more likeable, and the execution was just far better overall. Mafia 2 also gives the impression of large chunks being cut out because they just couldn't finish it.
