Apparently the American Italians have already complained about it.

Just wait until Jersey Shore: The Video Game comes out and they'll lose all focus on anything else.

I loved the first Mafia, great story and good action.

Not seen too much about the new one. Might give the demo a go.

Yeah, I tried the ps3 demo and you can drive everything AFAIK.

One thing that caught my attention was that the game storyline is from 1945-1957 so I wonder if we'll see an advancement of cars models, clothing styles, weapons etc.

That would be cool. Anybody know for sure?

The original had a story set over a number of years and the cars did get more modern and sleek over time.

Its pretty much GTA but with better shootuout bits. You can drive the cars but in the original you had to obey the rules of the road otherwise you got pulled up by the police.

Admit it, you'd at least try the demo.

Think about it, the achievements/trophies would be as hilarious as some of the skin tones on that show.

Yep can drive anything, you drive everywhere, you can get pulled up for speeding, hit and run, crashing, running red lights etc by the cops (or try and run or shoot them)

Its like GTA in that its a massive sandbox, weapons and cars, clothes etc all get newer as the story moves along over the years.

Got my new rig all set up up, installing Win7 tonight and the demo and give it a good run

Tell us how the demo worked out, i'll probably get it for the PS, even when the developers already said it would look 'inferior' on the PS3 :S
