Mafia 2 Interview

The Mafia 2 Interview on Shacknews talks with 2K's Denby Grace about the upcoming organized crime game sequel. Topics include differentiating the game from other open-world shooters, changes to the driving system, the new 40s-50s timeline, the cover system, linearity, and more. So hat's the biggest difference between the sequel and its predecessor? Denby says: "Ultimately it's a crime action game.. The big differentiation for people who played Mafia 1 to Mafia 2 is this intense gunplay. It's more like a first person shooter for us. So once you get into these combats, in this interior rooms, and the exterior [areas], you have so many dynamic objects going around. The way people use cover, the way you use cover, the way the weapons handle, it feels more like a--we put much more focus on the actual gunplay."

I don't mind more/better gunplay, as long as the story is just as good.

It sounds like there will be ways to avoid big shoot outs much of the time, so that should keep things interesting for those not wanting a straight shooter.
