1UP: Mafia II Preview

1UP writes: "The open world crime simulation genre (if you can even call that a genre) has always been the most logical one to use to bring the 1940s and 50s world of organized crime seen in The Godfather to life in videogames. Neither of EA's actual existing gamesbased on Mario Puzo's epic story ended up being that great though for a number of reasons. In 2002, even before those games had been released, Illusion Softworks was able to craft a rich period piece that evoked memories of some of the best mafia-based movies ever made called, appropriately enough, Mafia. This year, 2K Czech (the renamed Illusion Softworks) aims to deliver its second entry in the series, Mafia II, set for release in Q4."

The story is too old to be commented.
