The original was a classic sadly missed by many people, this looks incredible.

Holy crap those screens look good. I loved the first game on PC and hopefully with the added horsepower of the PS3 & 360 and the fact that the developers seem to be developing with consoles in mind from the beginning this time, this should make for a great sequel on all three platforms.

Hmm, Wikipedia mentions a trailer. Any chance you guys got that footage? I'd love to see this one in action.

I got a feeling this games going to be a pleasure to look at, and thats about it... can't imagine many original gameplay ideas coming out of this, unless the enviroments a weapon, I want a board with a nail in it to take my mob beatings into next-gen.

The first was so memorable and awesome (PC version only). Can't wait for this! Mafia 2 is going to kick GTA4 right on the nads :)

you should check out Mafia 1 on PC. It's better than all GTA games combined, the gun fights were VERY awesome and so were most of the missions, and the atmosphere was oozing with quality

I found the story, presentation and such to be far superior in Mafia, but the actual gunplay, driving, and such are inferior to the 3D GTA games. The actual gameplay was adequate in Mafia, though. One thing I hated in Mafia was some of the story choices that were forced upon the character. GTA is always pretty straightforward too, but the choices don't usually piss me off enough to make me quit playing.

What we really need as gamers is a game like GTA or Mafia that lets us choose or own path.

Wow. This looks a million times better than The Godfather. I can't tell if any of that trailer was real time, but if it is.....wow. And mobsters speaking German is just hilarious.

Well the graphics are upgrading quite a bit this days.Thats what i call nextgen games.
Commented on 2007-08-26 12:50:22
Very well. Loved the fist game, played it about 5 times. The story was so good, it felt more like a film than a game.

About the game


What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @AndreasZ94: for consoles 3d gaming (with a few exceptions) started with the 32bit era. for people playing on computers they's been a steady stream of 3d games from back to the early 80's (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yea.. NPCs in single player games should send you hate mail, like real people ;) (7 Hours ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 @MrWhite: I feel like its the enemy reactions to getting shot that's the real problem, they recover so fast and act like they never got shot (9 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @AndreasZ94: I've only played a bit of U4, but from what I did, it wasn't a big step up from 3. (9 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Ellie helping you out in melee situations was fun too. It's their only game where they made some good gameplay design elements when it came to enemies. (9 Hours ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 @MrWhite: Are u talking about U4 because i feel like the gunplay was pretty good, same for U2 (9 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @AndreasZ94: Certainly their best game of combining both, hence why I think its their best. They got the pacing right, but it also had a extra element in horror. (9 Hours ago)
