They're making a mistake by keeping it a PS2 exclusive. No game is good enough to plunk down $250+ for, for a system, memory card, and the game.

Hell, I liked Tommy ever since his role in The Relic, but its a wonder he lived through it - he was really deep into drugs early in his film carreer (which didn't end until De Niro actually showed up on his porch with Tommy's mom and gave him two choices - Betty Ford or Crowbar Hilton!). His drug problem was so bad that Spielbergh repeatedly said that he'd reshoot "Saving Private Ryan" entirely if he ever once failed a drug test, so Tommy's acting in that movie is a stone, cold, clean Tommy. The result was his best acting performance to date.

If I recall the details correctly, he's been tapped to play the role of "Owen Underhill" in the silver-screen adapation of the Stephen King novel "Dreamcatcher".

And the family resemblence he has with my brother is so unnerving. Whenever I see Tommy grinning in a movie, my first thought is always, "Is that Jody on TV?!?!" and I have to do a double take just to make sure.

It's just wierd.

very different games, mafia is very chopped up into small missions with no sub plots reeeeally (or from what ive played)... its "do this this way and you pass"... vice city you can do things dirty or clean and effeciant and if you get bored you can go terrorise homneless bums
