Galaxy GTX 460 GC 768MB Review

Mafia II is a third-person action-adventure video game, the sequel to Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven. It is developed by 2K Czech, previously known as Illusion Softworks, and is published by 2K Games.Originally announced in August 2007 at the Leipzig Games Convention, it was released on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC in August 2010.

The game is set in 1940s and 1950s era Empire Bay (the name is a reference to New York's state nickname “The Empire State”) a fictional city based on New York City, with influences from Chicago, Los Angeles, and Detroit. The game features a map of 10 square miles with no restrictions from the start of the game.There are 30-40 vehicles in the game (45 with DLC) as well as licensed music from the era.

Many firearms from the previous return, such as the Thompson submachine gun, the Colt 1911 and a pump-action shotgun. New WWII-era weapons like the MP 40, the M3 submachine gun, the MG 42 and the Beretta Model 38 also appear in the game.

It has been stated by 2K Czech that the game's cut scenes are created by the game engine, in real-time, rather than pre-rendered cutscenes. For example if the player is riding in a car and a cut scene starts, the player will be driving the same car and if the car is damaged, that will appear in the cut scene.

Mafia II proved to be a challenge for our review sample. We maintained an average of 30 FPS which is not bad at all but there were several areas which fall below our sweet spot of 30 FPS as indicated in our Min FPS graph.
