"From an early look at Mafia II, I was impressed by its gunplay, dialogue, and acting. I have no idea about its driving sequences and exploration aspects, but if they're similar in quality to what I saw then this game could be the surprise hit of 2009.
In theory, it takes a lot of what critics and fans loved about the original Mafia (the PC version) and adds all the expected next-generation advancements. The truncated mission I saw was quite interesting, which really surprised me. I'm definitely keeping my eye out for this game at E3 2009 and I suggest that you do to."
