Analyst: Mafia II "Unlikely to Achieve Profitability"

IndustryGamers quotes quote-worthy industry analyst Michael Pachter of Wedbush Morgan Securities, who reflects on the sales of Mafia II, saying he does not believe the open-world crime sequel will ultimately turn a profit. He says: "Mafia IIís average Metacritic score of 74 is well below expectations, and consumer interest appears to be waning, as the gameís position has dropped in many best-seller lists in its first week. With six years in development, we believe the game is unlikely to achieve profitability."

The critisism about the graphics are very understandable, unless you're a console gamer. For the PC the graphics are meager and I think the environment of GTA was bigger, better and, most importantly, more interactive. Textures aint sharp, and basically nothing in the graphics is impressive.

GTA had more sidequests and the main quest was longer.

I think it's freakin' ridiculous that the game only has a main story and lineair and short at that.

If this game doesn't give a profit it's their own damn fault. This game is fun, but a 7/10 indeed.
