Mafia II Demo

The promised playable demo for Mafia II is now available, with the Windows sample of the open-world action sequel provided by Steam. Here's word from the Mafia II Demo page that sets the story for what to expect: "Vito has started to make a name for himself on the streets of Empire Bay, someone who can be trusted to get a job done. In this hot leaded playable demo, you and Joe get one of your first serious assignments, to deal with a chump that isn't playing ball the way the Mob likes it." Update: A post to our forums has a tip on how to hax0r the demo for unlimited free-roaming, overcoming its inherent 10 minute limit.

It's a fantastic demo. Much better than GTA IV imo. Performance is great on my 4870/512 w/quad core cpu. It comes across as very polished. The city seems full of variety. Lots of vehicles, pedestrians, bridges, etc. They've done an outstanding job!

I'm not sure I'm comfortable hex'ing the game to fix the time issue. Can't steam revoke paid-for games or something if they catch us?


Valve generally doesn't give two shits what you do with Steam provided it isn't cheating in an online game that they own or defrauding other users. The former case will get you banned, the latter case will get you banned and reported to the police. No one cares that you pirated Borderlands DLC to use with your Steam copy or time hacked a demo of all things. Seriously they don't care, stop worrying


I've just got a new PC built, actually it is being assembled in the shop right now. I ordered it with XFX 5850 ATI card. I wonder if the physics really noticeable in these games so should I call them and get the video card switched over to the GTX470. It would be about $70 more expensive and I am already in the doghouse because I went well over budget on this PC, but I would hate to feel left out of all the physics goodness by having the wrong video card in my PC.

Can anyone comment on how noticeable all the physics stuff in these newer games?

There are like 3 total games on the market that actually support the extension of PhysX you're referring to(not just the software side that devs use) and it's not worth buying a video card over. If you absolutely must change your mind then get a 460GTX instead of a 470. Hell I think two of 460's in SLI scales better and is still cheaper than a 470. The 470's are being killed off by Nvidia right now, its a turd, don't buy one.

I have a 460 based system thats fine for the family and a slightly more powerful Radeon 5850 based system that I use. The 5850 gets better FPS in most games but its also a higher tier card so thats to be expected.
