Originally set to appear in 2009, 2k Czech's Mafia II is now set to appear in the first half of 2010 for the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. Judging from the video below, the game is shaping up pretty well.
First one is an instant classic can't wait to play the second one on PC.
This game looks stunning. I really hope this is console footage, because I cannot afford to make a good PC.
went from a rental to a must buy for me. Edit: This is extremely well polished. So much so it is almost unbelievable. WOW just WOW!
Don't worry, I'm sure it'll look and play great on consoles too. I doubt there'll be much difference other than texture resolution. edit: the part where he's taking cover behind crates of bottles with some guy shooting at him was cool. I like the way the crate moves with each hit from a bullet with the sound of breaking glass. edit: @Chubear I agree. This really is something else.
Awesome particle effects and deformation; awesome sound and music themes; awesome atmosphere. This is kinda how I thought THE AGENT would look like. I'm now even more excited to see THE AGENT after seeing this. Great great job by these developers. Men oh men, GTA is going to have to step up big time if they don't want to be only enjoyed by teenagers with the attention span of 0.
It makes me think it is the pc but like the guy above said, the only difference should really be texture resolution and texture pop-in. everything else shuld b the same those cover mechanics look really beautiful
That was pretty freaking Epic.
Looks incredible. I LOVE the shadows and the gameplay looks amazing.
Looks really sweet.
Well Sh** , i was really looking forward to getting this in 2009.This is gonna be one badazz game from the looks.
The first part was incredible and I expect nothing but greatness from this game.
....Holly sh%t that is amazing and to think thats running on consoles still the next gen amazes me from what we can experience. They have officaly taken my $60 dollars.
the first Mafia game was one of the best games i have ever played; graphics, gameplay, style, sound,... so i'm pretty wired for this one. And from the looks of it, Mafia 2 will deliver :)
this is a must buy for me =D
Must of been getting it mixed up with Godfather II. This game looks amazing. I wonder if this video is running on a console or PC. My guess is PC but the game is looking just as good as those screens shown.
Doesn't seem to have where you have to drive legally like the first game i.e. you can be caught for speeding or jumping traffic lights, as he was just driving fast and drifting round junctions. It is something I liked about the first game.
Yes it does. read the article and stop looking at just the pretty pictures. It clearly states that it's realistic because you can get speeding tickets and can't carry a sh!t load of weapons that just appear. Besides that, the game is amazing and not fully completed, so you can expect greatness. I hope this game sets the bar high for a lot of developers. This is what a sandbox should look like. Let the game flow and be more story driven instead of dumb side missions that have no purpose or meaning. The last iteration revolved around driving and this one is focusing more on the gun fight aspect. The wall covering is amazing and the particle effects really stand out. The AI actually attacks the enemy as if you are playing co-op.
Game looks awesome specially considering is sandbox. Graphics and effects are high quality and very polished. PC version? dont know but hope console's looks close. That said, I dont like the pace. It feels like GTA4, the same pop out shoot, pop in cover. After inFAMOUS I want something faster adrenaline pumping. GTA4 bored me to death.
I don't know what else to tell you. the main character in this game is a vulnerable human like everyone else; he can't take hella bullets and he doesn't have any powers or immunities. THe gunfights in this game look a little more cool simply because of your ally's AI. You saw how the guy with the tommy gun was running up on guys when they were down? that was hella cool. The destructable environment and cover looked clean too. Plus, the gameplay that was shown wasn't even from epic gameplay yet. I mean, that was from one of the beginning missions. hold judgement until you see what is supposed to be some of the best missions
The first one was very characteristic. Especially the driving was something completley unique in a sandbox game, (Im talking about the handeling and such) it was not like the weightless cars in GTA. Unfortunately I'm very sceptical to this game. The story might be amazing but this game looks like a typical 3rd person shooter.
I have been waiting on this game since the first Mafia game and now they are showing how its shaped up, I can honestly say its breathtakingly great. Graphics, gameplay and story line seems to be at such a high standard. Can't wait. all I can say is just take your time devs, we waited this long I can wait longer for a polished 100% game.
Wow! That looked amazing. I have the first Mafia and it looked and played like crap. What was so awesome about the first game was the story. To me, the first Mafia story was movie quality stuff. I actually played through the game just to see the cut scenes and hear the rest of the story. It looks like they fixed up the graphics and gameplay considerably. If they maintain this quality of look and feel plus an epic mafia story, we're looking at a potential AAA game. First day buy for me.
This is how GTA 4 should have looked and played, right from the bat the city in mafia 2 looked a live and people actually did things while you were driving around not just chatting on the cellphone every 5seconds. Like someone said hopefully this is how THE AGENT might look and who knows it could probably step up above this if done right :)
