I'm a huge fan of open world games. It's just, I dunno, I am not feeling it.

BigBosss1053d ago

Yes, I am really insane for sharing my honest opinion lol

Genuine-User1053d ago

I don't agree with his sentiment, but that doesn't mean he's insane. lol

TLG19911053d ago

I think he was speaking figuratively, I don't think Dr PC_60 was writing you up as medically insane, don't worry.

Bansai1053d ago (Edited 1053d ago )

Also not feeling, probably will not buy, don't really feel the protagonist too.

Anthotis1053d ago

It really doesn't seem like a Mafia game, and will no doubt be SJWfied to hell.

MurDocINC1053d ago

Looks like they took away everything that made mafia special. The classy Era, the mafia and realism are all gone.

badz1491053d ago (Edited 1053d ago )

LOL

Did u guys notice at 2:00 and 2:20 mark where the rear view mirror of the car showing the image of the car crashing in front of your car? That's some magic mirror we got over there! Even when the car chasing you crashed, the mirror automatically focus on the wreck like a tv LOL!

freshslicepizza1053d ago

looks awesome and if it's at least half as good as mafia 2 i'll be happy

Is it open world? Mafia 2 wasn't

Saijahn1053d ago

Mafia 2 was not even close to open world. It was very linear with little to no exploration.

x_RadicalAura_x1053d ago (Edited 1053d ago )

Wtf are you talking about?! Yes it was! Your picture suits you well.

ginsunuva1053d ago

@Aggesan

Open streets for driving =/= Open-world

Mikey Mike1053d ago

It was open, but it was not that free to roam around in. Bumnut is right, Mafia was linear. The game was open, but it was an empty shell of linear play.

pyroxxx1053d ago

Well going by what you think is an open world,.. Neither was MAFIA 1,.. but mafia's (at least one ,..) has some of best designed missions ever,.. (It actually shat allover standard GTA)

bumnut1053d ago (Edited 1053d ago )

Can't believe the disagrees, Mafia 2 was not open world. Just because you drive around does not mean its open world. It got lots of flak for being linear when it released

EDIT- Thanks Mikey Mike, at least someone backed me up

laid2rest1053d ago

By the sounds of it you don't even know what open world is. Any game where you have the freedom to move around freely is open world. Even if there is nothing to do in-between missions, it's still open world.

bumnut1053d ago

You didn't have the freedom to move around freely

sullynathan1053d ago

Mafia 2 was a full open world game that told a linear story. What you meant to say was that there wasn't much to do in the open world which is true.

Viper71053d ago (Edited 1053d ago )

It had Open world, it just wasn't a sandbox like the one in GTA or Just Cause are. It was merely there to give players some room to experience the story.

You could however drive around as much as you liked during certain missions/chapters.

_-EDMIX-_1053d ago

I'm not even sure how one defines a game as NOT being open world based on such a thing.

Before Fallout 3's patch, when you beat the main game, the game just ended.

Soooooo Fallout 3 not open world?

LMFAO! Dat logic doe.

Open world is...exactly what it means, its an open, larger world.

Mafia 2....has a open, larger world.

im not sure why all this hate is popping up. The game looks good - wtf

thricetold1053d ago (Edited 1053d ago )

Come on man, don't be naive. You know why the hate is there. Whenever we get a non pale faced generic protagonist suddenly the game is lacking or whatever crap they use to conceal the fact that they're not "feeling" the vibe of the game. Period point blank.

It's sickening.

Blaze9291053d ago

@thricetold lol I actually JUST found out that the main character being "Half-Black" is the issue.

http://www.neogaf.com/forum...

2015....2015 and this is still a problem lol.

cleft51053d ago

They arent feeling it cause the main protagonist isnt white. The dude does look interracial but thats not enough for them.

redknight801053d ago

Oh come on...not all the hate is in regards to the main character...look at the youtube comments on the video, (and here) nearly all the complaints are about the game being too "Saints Row" or "GTA" like...just because a few people say something racist, doesn't make it the main reason why people don't like the game...good god.

itBourne1053d ago

Wait, how is it that white people are ALWAYS the racist ones? Lol, because we arent up in arms about how racist this game is towards white people? All I seen was one black dude mass murdering white dudes. But... shall we flip things a bit? Resident Evil 5 maybe? and that was in Africa and they were fucking zombies... articles EVERYWHERE back then.

http://www.wsj.com/articles...

could post like 100 articles... But, your right, those damn white people, they are the only racist ones in America. NO one else can possibly be any bit of racist, just those damn white people.

thricetold1052d ago

@itbourne

Good question, how IS it that Caucasians are ALWAYS the racist ones? Your words not mine.

Nice deflection btw, it's always someone else's misguided perception isn't it? Nah, everyone is treated equally in merica and merica doesn't have a race issue whatsoever. I bet you believe that too. If you're not part of the solution you're part of the problem.

Stop sticking your head in the sand for the love of humanity.

@red

Do you really expect anyone to come right out and say it? It's called deflection, bash one thing because it's less likely to cause waves. Doesnt take a genius to read between the lines and I never stated that was the only reason, just the main one, imo.

When you see comments about how this ISN'T a mafia game I wonder if these folks ever heard of Frank Lucas, a man of color who rose to be more powerful than any of his Italian counterparts.

divinealpha1052d ago

I Just find it funny how people still beleive we live in a world of equality smh. Some of you have it to easy so you think the world is rainbows and sunshine.

Magicite1053d ago

as long as it retains all the aspects that made mafia 1 and 2 so special, Im in!

OhMyGandhi1053d ago

when the commentary started, I thought I had clicked on the wrong video.

Edvin19841053d ago

@Sennacherib I can totally understand how you feel about this game. I am on the other hand very excited for it, but could care less about MGS5 and MGS2 was one of my favorite games of all time. Mafia 2 was a stiff sort of game and I enjoyed the limitations it had, but the level of detail was epic, and I seem to get the same vibe here.

Erik73571053d ago

It looks interesting to me just cause we need a black protagonist in games and there's a lot of genric Caucasian protagonist in a lot of games and I feel like this game focuses on race issues as well which just makes this game a whole lot more interesting to me compared to others.

3-4-51053d ago

* Won't be buying it for $60, but it does look decent.

Christopher1053d ago

My only issue was how explosive cars were. Otherwise looks like a game with some potential.

bigc0720041053d ago (Edited 1053d ago )

You guys are elitists. Plain and simple. There have always been more than just the 'sicilian mafia!!' In this mafia...we will be playing as the black mob, and will be going after the italians. I think it's an awesome change of pace! To the retards comparing it to 5 other games...just stop. Stop trying to find something wrong with every game that comes out. You're the reason developers don't make great games anymore. The internet has given morons a voice, and then they try to please EVERYBODY, just to find out they can't. Stop judging games off their FIRST 3 minute trailers. It's a year too early for all that crap.

*EDIT*

Also, If you watch the video closely...you see some emblem pop up by the cars fenders? Is that why they are exploding? Maybe its an upgrade for your car that makes it more powerful or something? Could be completely wrong, but I think they're going to fix that up and make it more realistic. Was probably just to showcase how good the fire looks, and make it more dramatic for the reveal.

llMurcielagoll1052d ago

Hmm... I was excited when I saw the CG announcement trailer. When I saw the gameplay, it looks alright but I couldn't understand anything because I don't speak German.

After all this time of wait, am I just as excited when I heard that Mafia 2 was coming after the First mafia game? No not really.

I love the Mafia series, I still look forward to seeing what M3 has in store for us.

masterfox1053d ago

I don't see any Mafia atmosphere in that gameplay, just cadillacs and exploding cadillacs oh and a eye stab lol.

mafiahajeri1053d ago (Edited 1053d ago )

It's looks like a shitty tarintino movie which I really really hate. Compared to the past ones being scorcese movies.

porkChop1053d ago (Edited 1053d ago )

It's the black mafia from late 60s New Orleans. It's just not the Cosa Nostra mafia that you're used to.

Clown_Syndr0me1053d ago

Looks very different to previous game, but thats okay. I have faith this will be a great game.

Sir_Simba1053d ago

cut down on the explosions, and we're in business, I'm already curious about the story.

TLG19911053d ago

all I can think of is the Terry Crews old spice advert "EXPLOSIOOOOON"

It does look way over the top though.

Der_Kommandant1053d ago

I love Mafia games but honestly this doesn't look impressive.

yezz1053d ago (Edited 1053d ago )

I think it looks ok but most of all it doesn't look like a Mafia game.. That's the real problem in my opinion.

Hellsvacancy1053d ago

Yep, it looks ok but not what I was expecting, it shoud be called Ballas instead of Mafia

Agent_00_Revan1053d ago

I loved the original. I don't know why but I didnt feel the sequel as much. And this, doesnt resemble anything 'Mafia-esque'. I'll have to wait and see.

_-EDMIX-_1053d ago

I got to agree. I'm very, very worried. I feel it might be a bad game.

The car rolling over on fire got annoying along the video lol

I need to see a bit more, but I have a feeling that it might be a bad title. This team didn't do Mafia 2.
