You may be disappointed as there's nothing in there in terms of depicting Italians that there isn't in other films and games of the genre. 2K handled it quite tastefully, I thought. It's going to be great besides, though.

lol UNICO is obviously bored with having nothing to whine about,saying that a game about La Cosa Nostra shouldnt feature italians is like saying Yakuza shouldnt feature asians.

"denigrating stereotype of organized crime being the exclusive domain of Italians and Italian-Americans."
So if they threw in a handful of other ethnicities it would be fine to have Italian mobsters?

Hahahahahahahaha XD

Sounds no different than the other silliness in the media that's directed at video games. Making mountains out of rural anthills XD Sure, it's a stereotypical portrayal, but stereotypes are present in all media, like that Zelnick fella stated.
