Yes. It's french.
But I'm not french.
anyway...i think in terms of gameplay it looks a lot like gta iv
but where it sets itself apart is that it is heavily story driven and more immersive
id say this is a hybrid game of gta iv and uncharted lol
Your welsh? Oh and theres nothing wrong with being English Mcgee
When someone says Mafia 2 is GTA in the fifties, people here get mad because it isn't. And everyone and their dog is saying that.
I agree with mcgee and this thread
coming from a hardcore GTA fan, this is not GTA4 or any other sandbox game for that matter
This game has freeroaming but it focuses mainly on the story whereas GTA4 relys on freeroaming more then storytelling.
Truth is this
Freeroaming is better to do in GTA4
Singleplayer story is going to be better in Mafia2
I guess as we get closer to release date more people will understand that Mafia II isn't another GTA clone. I even saw some reviewers realizing that, so there is still hope for M2 to become one of the highest rated games this year, and receive the credit it deserves.

"Freeroaming is better to do in GTA4"
No really, do to Mafia 2 amazing open world.
But i get your point.
this game is not GTA in the 50's but it is Assassins Creed 1 in the 50's
open world but with liner story
and cant swim
they just used updated technology (guns instead of swords) and a different group (Mafia instead of assassins)
what a load of ****

Who in the **** compared (asscream)assassins creed to mafia2!?
The only thing both games have in common is that you can freeroam.
No!!! ****ing horses or swords in Mafia2
Vito wont be taking it up the ass in mafia2
By the sound of this game it does seem abit like assassins creed, i mean nothing more than story the mainstream game play is no different. Its an open world game that is based mostly on story.
yes mate, I am.
hahaha alright matey.
1) Yes, long time ago back on the ol' PS2
2) Mafia 2, don't look like either to me
3) I'm not sure what you mean by how much in general, but at the moment to me it seem like a sandbox style that will focus on the story only.
i never really got into Mafia. Im not to sure on this one either, what will keep ya playing after you have finished? I would be a good hire game but not sure on spending a good buck on somthing ill play finish and never see again.
yeah iv played bio shock, same kind of problem spent all this money on a game i finished and havnt play again, what kept me play RDR was the fact it has side missions, minigames and feature that allow you to DIY, make your own mini story. The gamplay of Mafia II looks good, the shooting , stealth missions whatnot but can you go do this again in your own way?
I'd rather have 12 completey different side missions (and no more) to add more gameplay time and mix it up a little than have no side missions at all.
I think this game is better being compared to uncharted than anything else (due to it being very story driven and the development of characters).Have you ever played Bioshock, or even Uncharted 2?

you have a point and i know what you mean it the context of Mafia II, but it would be nice (gamers like myself) for it to be more open world, like call up "Johnny" anytime you feel to make a buck or two by doing some kind of protection racket mission, or doing a John Dillenger and hold up a bank, (one thing i did like about the godfather was the holding up banks) just a little bit more freedom after you finish or during your time outs where you don't want to do a main story mission, and i know the story has somthing similar and why can't i just go rob the bank mission all the time but its not the same, you doing the mission over and over and you get bored of it, where as if its more not as scripted side mission you take your own approach.
