    About the game:
    Mafia II is a sandbox-style action-adventure video game which is the sequel to Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven.

    The game will be available for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3

    The game will be set from 1945 to 1955 in Empire Bay (the name is a reference to New York's state nickname "The Empire State".), a fictional city based on San Francisco and New York City, with influences from Chicago and Detroit.The game will feature a completely open-ended game map of 10 square miles. No restrictions are included from the start of the game. There will also be around 50 vehicles in the game, as well as licensed music from the era.

    Story:
    Mafia II is a gritty drama which chronicles the rise of World War II Veteran Vito Scaletta, the son of Sicilian immigrants. As the game progresses, Vito will join a crime family and become a made man.

    The story begins with the player character Vito returning home on leave from World War II. Vito had joined the U.S. military as a way of avoiding jail time for a botched robbery. He then discovers that his father died and left his family $2000 in debt. Vito reunites with his old friend, Joe Barbaro, and the two quickly embark upon a life of crime. Their criminal ascension starts with Mikey, a car mechanic who gets in a conflict with Joe. Mikey also needs a certain type of car to chop for parts, and will pay $400 for one that the police are not tailing. Soon enough, Vito, Joe, and Henry Tomasino (already a made man in the Clemente family) find themselves battling with, for, against, and around three crime factions: the Falcone, Vinci and Clemente families.

    The game will contain two hours of in-game cutscenes. The original game, Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven, had a screenplay of 400 pages, opposed to the 700 pages of the sequel. Daniel Vávra, the writer and director of the original and the sequel, discussed the new angle of the game stating: "The old game was a tribute to gangster films, a romantic vision. Mafia II is grittier, real, a darker world, and the effects are based in reality."

In the USA GameStop would be the best place to pre order as you get both the War Hero and Vegas packs.

    I was unsure about this game when it was first announced. I enjoyed the first Mafia game, but didn't think it matched up to other open-world crime games such as GTA. After seeing the first trailer for Mafia II, I was hooked. Now I just need to try the demo and see if it will live up to the expectations the trailers have set.

    PC or Xbox 360, that is the question... I might go with the PC version as its cheaper and the demo works very well on my PC.

    At the time GTA 3 / Vice City and Mafia were pretty even I thought, Mafia was basically GTA in a different time setting.

    As for the Mafia 2 demo it exceeds the expectations I had from the trailers! The game is a lot of fun... it would be great if there was some co-op or multiplayer elements in the game... however even without I think its going to be a great game.

    Mafia 2 is loads better, I played the first Godfather and didn't like it at all.
    The atmosphere is a lot better in Mafia 2 if that makes sense, try the demo if you haven't allready.
