De Mafia-franchise bevat nog maar twee games en geniet eigenlijk al van enorme populariteit. De klassieker Mafia was een regelrechte hit en alhoewel Mafia 2 een totaal andere weg in sloeg, was het voor velen een prachtige game, zo ook voor ons. De downloadbare content zorgde ervoor dat free-roaming ook mogelijk was en de game zonder downloadbare content was een kunstwerk op zich. De sfeer in de game was zo ontzettend goed nagemaakt, dat je er elke minuut van kon genieten.

Via een vacature is mogelijk naar buiten gekomen dat de game zich af gaat spelen in Louisiana, zo blijkt uit informatie die uit de vacature is gehaald. Men is namelijk op zoek naar acteurs en actrices. De beschrijving van de personages lijkt verdacht veel op die van Mafia en dat de uitgever Take Two is maakt het helemaal compleet.

[FRANKLIN]
Born in Louisiana, Mixed race – African American/Caucasian, Early 20s, 6′, Bouncer’s build – broad, not cut. An orphan in the racially segregated South who rises to criminal prominence after returning home to Louisiana from war. Having been an outsider to both white and black society, Franklin is fiercely loyal to those he considers “family.” He is both street-smart and strong. Disciplined and imposing, confident yet guarded, Franklin knows how to get a job done at any cost…

[TONY]
Born in Louisiana, Italian, Early 30s, Thin, Immaculately dressed and groomed. A genius with numbers and statistics who runs sports betting operations in Louisiana. Tony is not your typical gangster. Meticulous and organized, Tony is more concerned about numbers and profit than people. On the surface, Tony appears quiet and socially awkward, but in reality he is more than capable of inflicting violence on anyone who disrupts his bottom line. Tony doesn’t fear people; he simply does not understand or like them.

[MICKEY]
Born in Louisiana, Italian, Late Teens/Early 20s, Average build. A young street hustler who likes to run his mouth, Mickey likes to talk big on the streets, but when push comes to shove, he can’t back it up. Mickey has a bad habit of taking credit for bigger jobs and making himself seem higher up in the criminal ladder than he really is. When confronted with this, he reverts back to the scared teenager he really is.
