Mafia 2 trailer

Mafia 2 trailer

2K Games just sent us this first trailer of Mafia 2, and it's a good one at that! For those who wonder, it's the trailer they showed during the Game Convention, and yes, it's fully CGI. Anyway, the last batch of real-time screens looked great, so nothing to worry about.

CG? Damn! Not a good sign when you see a developer which previously didn't use any CG at all, now using CG to pimp their game

So many developers use CG these days though, it's not abnormal when the game is still quite a ways off.

A lot of times companies try to use CG they think the game will be close to looking like, like Bungie with Halo 3, Sony with Killzone, Motorstorm, F1, and GT5, and surprisingly, most of those have turned out fairly close to the original CG...

I'm surprised in CG, the beginning in the restaurant doesn't look CG. The puddle part looks CG but the talking cutscenes look realtime.
Considering the first Mafia I'm pretty sure they will come very close to this trailer in quality anyway.

After getting the HD version I guess I'll agree.. the trailer is CG. I hope they can come close to the graphics, especially the cutscenes anyway.

I don't really like CGI stuff :( it looks so plastic

i think game developers are better off not releasing any trailer of their games if they're not ready to show the actual game to public. GTA IV is a good example of this. seeing the trailer in game after hearing nothing about it for so long was a big "wow".

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (4 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (4 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (4 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (4 Hours ago)
