"With so many games on the horizon for 2009, there still weren't many titles that were really catching my eye. Well my friends, that has now changed. After Loot Ninja's 1st eyes on during a recent 2K media day, it's easy to see that Mafia II is without a doubt going to be on everyone's shopping list come this fall. This crime epic is being developed by the same team behind the original game, Illusion Softworks, which since then has become 2K Czech. This may come across as a bold statement, but if the small tidbit of gameplay we've seen is a true and accurate indication of what to expect, then I'll go out on a limb here and say (don't chew me up on this please) that this may very well be a candidate for game of the year. I will explain why."
