Mafia II
Mafia II

Action 24 August 2010

A sequel to the popular gangster game - the first Mafia was released in 2002. This new title was developed by the creators of the original game – also known for games like Hidden & Dangerous and Vietcong – working for the 2K Games company. The second part tells a completely new story; however, it contains multiple references to the previous title. The protagonist is a man named Vito Scaletta, who returns to his home city of Empire Bay after the end of Second World War; the city itself is a virtual creation heavily inspired by New York. Trying to find himself in a new, peaceful reality, Vito picks up jobs for the local criminal underground, gradually climbing up the mafia hierarchy. Apart from traditional shootouts with rival gangs, kidnappings, and getaways, there are lots of extra attractions, such as clothing stores and car customization options. A new game engine significantly improved the graphics and features like day and night cycle.
