GamesRadar: Mafia II - first look - Slick visuals and stylish mobsters make this 1950s mob drama one to watch

GamesRadar writes: "2008 is shaping up to be the year of the free-roaming sequel. In the coming months, fans of open-world games can look forward to Grand Theft Auto IV, Saints Row 2, Mercenaries 2 and Just Cause 2, for starters. And assuming its still-unannounced release date happens later this year, one of the biggest will be Mafia II.

Forget what you might remember about the crappy PS2 and Xbox ports of the first Mafia; when it arrived on PCs in 2002, the game was a brilliant achievement in terms of art, storytelling and scope. One of the earliest Grand Theft Auto clones, it's remembered as one of the best, with a huge, detailed city, miles of explorable countryside, seamless building interiors and a nuanced story about a conflicted, Prohibition-era mobster named Thomas Angelo."

This is going to be a good one. To be honest no game in this genre (Mafia, GTA, Saints Row, etc.) that I have played has actually been bad.

I played the original game on the PC years ago and loved it. The story was really good and it made we want to finish the game despite some of the flaws. I'm really looking forward to this one. Just like you said there really isn't any bad game in this genre.
