Mafia Wars2 tries to be Steve Jobs working on a PC. It substitutes storyline for fancier graphics, smoother icons and design, and the numeric fun of piling up scores is almost gone. Did you mention social gaming- there are hardly any incentives for “social” part of the game. It looks like a gaudy Vegas twist to a beloved franchise.
Leave sequels to the boys in Hollywood, Pincuss/Zynga- You will need to be much more original to create the next blockbuster. Of course given the size of Zynga’s captive addict-base, the game will be a hit. But it will be a hit more like Transformers 3 , than likes of Blade Hunter or Terminator 2.
May we suggest another NEW game , than rebooting the squeezed lemon juice of a beloved and now departed friend-chise.
ps The song is irritating too. and the skimpy clad players are insulting.
Transformers # is a long long movie. so long that you wonder when the robots would stop fighting and start singing songs of peace.
Megan Fox ‘s replacement is so bad, you wish they replaced the director. This is a robot overkill, to the point of a horror massacres. But if you saw the first two movies, and want to know what happened next go ahead. The early half of the movie with the Moon Landing was good, but somewhere down the line the director falls in love with himself rather than with his art. Shia LeBeouf is wasted once again in a big action franchise thriller-but he would rather be a well paid safe big movie star than be an actor plying his grease paint. Oh yes, some parts of the movie you cant really figure out who is an autobot, who is a decepticion and who is the idiot for paying extra for a 3 D movie.
Still , Enjoy .
