As promised, here is our very own hands-on preview for 2K Czech's upcoming Mafia 2, from an exclusive preview event AusGamers was invited out to in San Francisco very recently.

This is an in-depth run-down of what to expect from the game, as well as a look at the game design goals within the team. We had a look at the game on all three systems as well (including PC 3D Vision Surround), and so far it's coming together very nicely. Also be sure to stay tuned for two video interviews for the game, one with 2K Games Director of Creative Production, Jack Scalici, and the other with nVIDIA Content Manager, Eric Lieu (talking about PhysX and 3D Vision Surround).

it's pretty different to the first one, but I think for the better

As long as it contains more interaction with the game world i'm sold.

Never got very far in the first one... I liked it, but honestly speaking, everything felt too 'slow', so to speak.

it was slow at first because of the time period it was set in. as the game progressed, so did the technology, and cars became much faster.

i think it was the first and only sandbox that separated the ADD kids from the real gamers.

Tepid, that's basically the same here - you have your prerequisite 'tutorial' moments in the first few sections of the game, but once that's over, the experience is presented to you at a steady and consistent pace, and despite the world being 'alive', based on the way it was all delivered to me, I never once felt like straying from my goals or progressing the story - not even for some cheap cop-escaping thrills ;)

Yeah, I wasn't expecting fast muscle cars or the like... but at the same time I played it coming straight from San Andreas, so jumping from a game like that to Mafia was slightly jarring for me, especially being a fan of mindless action. Time to put that ADD aside though and give it a playthrough, something I've been meaning to do for a while now.

Totally worth it, I was thinking of replaying the game again it's that good. And I rarely replays games with story lines.
