That's actually looking a lot better than I expected...

The first one was brilliant on the PC but the PS2 port was shocking, i never played the Xbox port but that got bad reviews too. Otherwise the damaged car looks very cool.

Yi-Long2784d ago looks great, design-wise (streets, buildings, etc), but it also seems quite empty, and the pop-up is still noticable, so that's quite worrying.

Also, I don't really like how the car seems to handle, to easily slipping a bit.

Obviously, I hope this will be great, but it does seem it still needs some work to fix some stuff.

They are very old era cars, and so their handling is not up to today's car standards, they are slippy, heavy and often out of control.

Also I thought pop-up wasn't bad, quite a lot less than the GTA games which I was quite impressed with (I love GTA by the way).

Thats exactly what Mafia 1 aime to do, make the cars as realistic as possible

hassi942783d ago

Yes I've began to play Mafia 1 a little in anticipation to this. But I'm someone who's never gotten used to keyboard and mouse so I'm awaiting my wired Xbox controller in the mail :)

piroh2784d ago

what kind of bonus will PS3 version have?

ForzaGT2784d ago (Edited 2784d ago )

extra missions ;)

piroh2784d ago

hope they'll release a demo

Letros2784d ago (Edited 2784d ago )

PS3 gets extra missions, PC gets extra graphic effects, anything extra for 360?

instrumentalist2784d ago (Edited 2784d ago )

to the max. that's what 360'ers get :)

peowpeow2784d ago

krisq2784d ago (Edited 2784d ago )

can't wait to be a mafia boy !

The game look absolutely good!

But... the freeroamiing game with the better physics remain GTA IV, and this sucks, since 2k Games is 'associated with Rockstar".

Are you trying to say that Mafia 2 PhysX engine is better than GTA IV PhysX engine? LOL

instrumentalist2784d ago (Edited 2784d ago )

I'm not sure what you're talking about. You probably meant "more amusing physics", because GTA never had anything more than that. Mafia is a more serious, well made of GTA, and they aimed at creating a believable, immersive story, in which they have already succeeded with Mafia 1. Also, cars are realistic, act realistic, missions are incredibly good, AI is great, design and graphics were awesome back then.. Comparing the two almost makes no sense as GTA clearly focused on rampage fun in a NFS arcade fashion, with no intention of delivering a serious mafia experience.

And that's what makes GTA great, but it shouldn't undermine and stand in the way of Mafia, as they took completely different approaches and Mafia is far ahead of GTA when objectively discussing game quality.

Oh and I'm just gonna say - 160ms lag in GTA IV, followed by the super-shitty lazy camera.

You Noob2784d ago (Edited 2784d ago )

Damn.. i said PHYSIC ENGINE. I said NOTHING about graphics, story, missions etc...

Look when the car hit the pedestrain.... IT SUCKS if compared to GTA IV physics.

Also, when the car roof hit the wall nothing happened. In GTA IV car roof can change the form.

hassi942784d ago

I have an XFX Radeon HD 5750 which will max this game easy but thanks to Nvidia's monopolization I won't have access to the advanced physics engine, so I may just buy this on Xbox if the port is reported good...

Digital Molecular Matter FTW!
