MafiaLife Online Mafia Game

MafiaLife is a brand new style of Mafia Role Playing Gaming. MafiaLife has more features to control your player actions, and more details to challenge your game experience than any mafia game in the industry. MafiaLife is a virtual online life in the mafia. You build your mobster's specialties, attributes, and levels up while trying to stay out of trouble, the hospital, and jail. You work and interact with other MafiaLife players to try and keep your crime family, your crew, and yourself on top of the leaderboard.

Unlike other MRPG's, MafiaLife takes the game-playing depth to a new level. The goal is not just to put the user in a role, but to make that user 'feel' like he is a mobster. Playing MafiaLife can actually replace the desire for some mob enthusiasts to act like a criminal outside of the fantasy realm. Some MafiaLife players consider it a mafia game drug they are addicted to. In MafiaLife, unlike any other games, the end user has any and all tools they need to live a virtual life in a mafia crime family. In MafiaLife there is a never-ending challenge of building your character individually, building your crew cooperatively, and interacting as a crime family to commit unlimited crimes, and engage in player vs player attacks. No other game allows for one-on-one, crew-on-crew, and family-on-family competitions. No other game caters to an "elite everyday" and "sometimes casual" gamer, and at the same time, keeps them both addicted.

To learn more about MafiaLife ask your local Portland Internet consultant, or you can Play MafiaLife Now.
