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?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @KORNdog: Still very different. More like Diablo but the "game feel" is not as polished. Systems are more well designed, but I have to give it to Diablo when it comes to fit and finish. (5 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: like divinity? Better or worse? Might be one i dust off the xbox for. (5 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The economy is unique and will probably seem strange to new players.. but every system is cleverly tied together in PoE. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And yes.. the passive skill tree is pretty insane. It has a healthy mix of rigid decision making in its passive tree and flexibility in the active skill system. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Path of Exile is an endlessly playable action RPG and Pillars of Eternity is a turn-based single player game w/ a party system. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX No they are not.. they are both RPGs and they both have isometric cameras but that's where the similarities end. (6 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz I always confuse the PoE abbreviation with Pillars of Eternity. Are they even the same type of game? (6 Hours ago)
