The Playstation 3 and Wii versions of the game include additional execution styles, for a total of 51 execution styles you must perform against rival mobsters.

  • Electrocution Execution: You must throw or push your enemy onto a power box. If you push, you risk damage from electrocution yourself.
  • Neck Snap Execution: You first need to acquire the garrote wire. You must approach your enemy from the rear, but enemies usually turn to face you. You can shoot a mobster in the leg and then circle around to approach from the rear, or you can approach a mobster busy fighting a member of your crew or the police if you have bribed them. Then execute with the garrote.
  • Pistol Whip Execution: You first need to get enough points in the Operator skill category to unlock melee moves with a gun drawn. While locked on to your enemy, make the pistol whip gesture by moving the Sixaxis controller/Wiimote to the left.

Special note: On the Nintendo Wii, a simple summary to execute these moves is to press A button and follow the buttons or gestures. You have to exaggerate what's on display to make it work. The PS3 is similar but its controller motions may be limited so keep a sharp eye out for it.
