- Playboy reviewed Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven, saying it was "An offer you can't refuse".
- The Playboy magazines are all anachronistic; Playboy was not founded until 1953, and the images placed in the game were published between 1958 and 1968. The 19 Playboys added in Joe's Adventures range from 1960 to 1969, with a single image added from 2007.
