DescriptionThe Betrayal of Jimmy is DLC for Mafia II. Once installed, the story starts as a standalone scenario from the main menu. This add-on features an entirely new character as protagonist, not featured in the base game. You take the role of Jimmy, a type of a "cleaner" for the mob who does the dirty work for them. There are three main mission types which appear on the map and can be played in any order to progress the story. Mission types consist of stealing cars for your employers, taking jobs from Sal Gravina, head of the Italian gang, or taking jobs from Tam Brodie, head of the Irish gang. Most of the jobs from your employers are to eliminate competition in the underworld, namely Bombers and Triads.
Similar to the base game, you own a couple of apartments, you can collect cars by bringing them to your garages, buy weapons, visit diners, buy clothes, bribe cops and more. However, this DLC is much more action-oriented and involves a lot of shooting and little to no stealth. The game features over 20 missions in total, and all of the missions are time-based giving you a certain amount of time to finish them or fail if the time runs out. The more time remaining after successfully completing the mission, the higher the score is. All finished missions can be replayed to try and earn higher score.
As the name implies, by the time you reach the end and eliminate all the loose ends for the Italian and Irish gangs, the only loose end that remains will be none other than yourself. You get betrayed and caught by the police. This paves the road for Jimmy's Vendetta, a second DLC which continues the story.
