Looks very cool, I'm concerned about open world fatigue this year though. I've played thru GTA4, and both it's kids, RDR and I'll be picking up LA Noire for sure, who knows, maybe Rockstar have something else lined up for this year. Might have to leave it till next year for Mafia 2.

^^Story and mission structure will be crucial (as they always are I guess).

But cool trailer and I'm convinced I'll get this day one.

Pretty cool.

Also they announced a demo coming out in August. Supposedly it'll be the same demo they'll have at E3.

I hope they implement skin/model damage like in the cut scene where they executed that guy. Too long in coming for open-world games.

The first one was open world in name only really. The missions were often contained and linear more like an action game, though that's not to say the open world didn't add a lot to the game.

9 posts in 3 hours. Nice to know people are looking forward to this game..


But for real, I hope they don't spoil another mission for E3. We've already seen 3 missions & there will likely only be 15-20 in the game(assuming it's like the first game). But if they do show a new one I'll just have to muster the courage to not watch it.

At least we know the cut scenes will be killer. Hope there are lots and lots of them, 2+ hours at least!

Nice to see they're putting a demo out for it. There is hardly any buzz for this at all.

Well, OK then. Says more about you than the state of western game development, though.

Yeah it did play pretty crappy at PAX East, especially compared next to Crackdown 2 and Red Dead

That sounds like a very interesting approach, for some reason I imagined Agent to be like that. I never played the original, since there is a demo, I can know for sure if I'm up for it or not. And it's out around my birthday so I can ask my parents for it instead of having to find the cash myself.

gotta give this thread some love

I'm really looking forward to this but I haven't seen that much actual gameplay in action. all the videos I've seen have been cut scenes.

I believe they released a patch to make it less retarded.

So I'm thinking about picking up the first Mafia, since I've grown more and more excited about Mafia II as the trailers have been steadily released.

Quick question though, does the PC version run on Windows 7 (32 bit, if it matters)? Or should I just grab the PS2 version?

No. Do NOT get a console version. They suck.

Apparently the original Mafia will be coming to Steam . . . probably as a promotion for Mafia 2. So if you can wait a bit, you might be able to pick it up on Steam for a good price.

It is actually Eastern European (Czech Republic) but I guess that qualifies as 'western'.

DO NOT BUY THE PS2 VERSION. I'm serious, it's a botched port with terrible graphics, load times, and cut features. PC version still holds up very well - I highly recommend checking it out.

I play it on Vista with no problems. Pretty sure it works with Windows 7.


Actually I just started a new game this past weekend in anticipation for the 2nd game : )

WTF is that? Am I supposed to get a video? I just get flickering numbers and church music. Is this downloading something?
um, it's just the official website. It loads, plays a video, and then you can navigate through the sections.
