I got to play a bit of Mafia II. Being a fan of the first game, I'm personally looking forward to this. The playable demo was a small mission that started from a window of a building with you using a machine gun to take out some enemies on the street outside the neighboring building. After disposing of them, I entered the warehouse building to take out more guys. The controls felt a little too sensitive, but otherwise it was a good demo. The game utilizes a cover system with the ability to lean out to shoot.
The game looked good, and I look forward to returning to the fun, mobster-type game world that I enjoyed in Mafia 1. Hopefully the driving will be better this time.
