About the Game
Mafia 2 is not attached to its predecessor (although the developers do not exclude the presence of any reference to observant fans of the original game), the play's action takes place in the years 1945 to 1951 in the fictional town of Empire Bay, in whose creation was inspired by authors primarily the cities of New York and San Francisco. Do your home Empire Bay at the end of WW2 returns main hero of the game, Vito Scaletta. It was not just after vyvedených experience with the dark side of the law compelled to enlist, which was the only way to avoid prison. After discovering that his late father left the family in debt, is again forced to embark on a life of crime, and also thanks not exactly exemplary influence of his best childhood friend, Joe Barbara. Due to the events are both drawn to the Mafia underworld, where together they enjoy both the ups and the downs related necessary.
The game is specifically set in two distinctly differing periods. Gloomy winter scenery from the second half of the 40s, when most people still act the effects of war, replace the second part of the game lightened (spring season already) the first half of the fifties in the sign of fast cars, technological innovations and rock'n'roll. That period music, like in the first game to enjoy their fill - dozens of licensed songs will be sung from radios in homes or bars, so while driving.
As for the game play, Mafia II builds on the foundations laid by the first part, which in the context of the development of modern 3D action game develops, or vice versa easier. Still it is an action of a third person, which puts emphasis on the story (told primarily through cut-scenes, which play together for over 2 hours) or in his favor restrict nowadays so often inflected "open-world "or" sand-box "elements. The player can thus despite the detailed processing of a large city expect a rather linear gameplay with a variety of pre-scripted sequences to amplify atmospheric narrative experience.
