* ContestedSequel: Given that ''VideoGame/MafiaTheCityOfLostHeaven'' is a CultClassic, this was pretty much a given. While it was liked well enough, many people criticized it for it's unsympathetic characters, simplified gameplay and lack of Free Ride Mode, making it extremely short and without any real replay value.

* ItsEasySoItSucks: Quite a few reviewers complain that even with the Hard difficulty and Realistic driving modes on few missions offer any real challenge, especially compared to the unforgiving nature of the first game (look above).

** "In Loving Memory of Francesco Potenza". Not due to difficulty (it's the only chapter in the game to have no enemies) but becuase it's a long chapter with CheckpointStarvation. You literally have only one autosave in the whole chapter, so you better have free time when you play it.

* DoNotDoThisCoolThing: "The old game was a tribute to gangster movies, a romantic vision. ''Mafia II'' is grittier, real, a darker world, and the effects are based in reality." - Daniel Vávra, Writer and Director of ''Mafia'' explaining the decision to make the sequel DarkerAndEdgier.

* [[spoiler:BolivianArmyEnding: The ending of the game is ambiguous enough that it's unclear who exactly lives and dies. The game seems to imply that Joe dies but Vito lives, but it's also entirely possible that Joe and Vito would survive to take on the remnants of the Vinci family after already previously severely wounding the others. It's also entirely possible that the game has an outright DownerEnding where Joe and Vito have [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness outlived their usefulness]] to the Vinci family, with the two of them being unceremoniously killed so the Vincis can rise to power due to no real opposition anymore.]]

** And reversed with fans of the original, who felt that with the [[WalkItOff Regenerating Health]], OneBulletClips and [[ItsEasySoItSucks lack of difficulty]] combined with an AnachromismStew took away the realism of the original that made it so great. As such the gameplay was LighterAndSofter, while the story tried so hard to be DarkerAndEdgier that it lost some character. Basically it ended up managing to make both fans hoping for a GTA game or a sequel Mafia both disappointed!
