Mafia Wars mobile SMS hands-on: Not quite the perfect crime

Mafia Wars has rolled out a new mobile feature for the game designed to close the gap between playing the game on Facebook and on your mobile phone. But unlike Bejeweled Blitz, which uses Facebook Connect to create a connection between the Facebook and iPhone versions, the Mafia Wars solution is not as intuitive, requiring players to sign up to send and receive texts from Mafia Wars, and then use a series of commands to complete missions, fights, check stats, etc in the game.

For someone who has an unlimited mobile/texting plan, this isn't a big deal, but for people who pay upwards of 10 cents a text or have limited texting plans, this new Mafia Wars feature could easily go from nifty to nuisance.
