When the first Mafia game come out it drew plenty of criticism for being too much in the vein of Grand Theft Auto. But the long await for Mafia 2 is drawing ever closer and will be coming to PS3, Xbox 360 and PC on August 24, but if you cannot wait that long the demo will be with you on August 10.
A cinematic trailer has recently been released by 2K Games, no gameplay footage is shown, however it does give you a rough idea as to what to expect from the game, including brawls, drive-by shootings and burying alive your enemies.
Gamers play as Vito Scaletta, a World War II soldier returning to Empire Bay on leave after he’s injured on operations. Of course, it’s not long before Vito is up to his neck in the Mafia network of Empire Bay.
Some of the most unique mechanics may also be a hindrance to the gameplay. For instance, cars all use gasoline as a resource, and you need to refill them from time to time if you don’t want to outright steal other cars.
We have embedded the trailer video below, however if you would like to see it in all of its full HD glory check out the source link below.
