Hey, I have a question. I tried the Mafia 2 demo but the occasional pause becomes a permanent one - I presume my old puter isn't cut out for it.

Anyway, I wanted to try the original Mafia - so I went on to Steam but they dont sell it, they only have it as part of the package with Mafia 2 - which I'm not going to buy if my computer cant run it.

With Steam giving away copies of Mafia for free, does anybody have a spare copy? Or does anybody know where else I could buy a copy from?

those are called memory leaks... they obviously released before fixing those, optimizing and such , hence why the console version is almost better, they have slowdowns sometimes but no apparent memory leaks like the pc version.

Console version is pretty similar graphically.

Stop fakin' the funk , yeah its a good game but it's still a console port and i feel that supporting this type of game will make them produce more single player gta clones, which we don't need.

Don't be mad because this game feels like a console port... i know the truth hurts but morality does not affect everyone. Some people have been through injustice so often that they do not care anymore.

This game feels like a console port. A simple but polished GTA clone.

Yeah, its GOTY material, but it loses to Red Dead Redemption (assuming it comes out on pc this year).

This game is 10/10 if they had coop/multiplayer implemented. I played mafia 8 years ago just like you all, and was impatient and wanted to try it.

Relax dude, i came here telling you guys how it runs on my specs... what to expect and such, there was no epeen involved really.

I love how people on this board start crying after people pirating games... and then they cry when a game is pay-to-play mmo.

Sorry but we all have different standards, mafia 2 is a single player experience, just like bioshock, i think that Red Dead Redemption is a much better game overall and deserves the GOTY title over this.

I was playing Neocron, ww2online and trying out different other mmo's in 2001, that's 30$ us/month for 5 years almost. Who said i never supported pc gaming ?

Do not blame the individual that protects himself from being ripped off by a shady and buggy product. I have paid 60$ for non 3D games like Conquest of the Aegean and never cried 'ripoff'. I paid for the programming skills of the operational AI.

This game is a single player theme park, nothing fancy but well done.

Check out Xsyon if you want to see what a true open sandbox mmo game is, oh wait it's pay2play and an mmo, probably gonna scare most of the people here.

Comparing it to rooting an android phone is pretty much moronic, especially as that's entirely legal you dolt.

How many years did it take ?

Here's my pc specs

Phenom II 550, not unlocked (need a cooler, the stock cooler is shit)
4 gig ram
Old 8800gts

I can run the game maxed out easily but ONLY if i use 24bit/48khz sound.

Forget 192khz/24 bit , it drains the cpu and sound is glitchy.

You are blaming the wrong guy, i have lost my job twice in the past 4 years, been jobless for 40 weeks and counting...

Listen, i have a Digital Audio Workstation, i think i have one legit software in there.

With the ridiculous nerfing of pc games, you cant blame a pc gamer for trying out games before buying, they have been destroying the pc standard and tried to replace it with the casual scheme for too long.

You can pirate consoles even easier, it's just that kids don't know it and mommy buys the games for bday/xmas. Consoles are also more accessible.

I bet your iphone is not jailbreaked, or android phone not rooted.

You cant blame people for pirating , people have been trying to rip us off with cheap 3 hour worth of gameplay console ports since a decade.

I won't buy mafia 2, there is no multiplayer, or coop. Thats why i gave it 9/10 but hey, i live in the 21st century, mp/coop is a must for me or i do not buy. They have ruined the shock franchise because of this bullshit.

Ok here's a review of the first 5 chapters. Some spoilers but minimal.

You start off on the frontline of the italian resistance/usa in 43, in sicily. It's like a tutorial but gets you in the action quick.

Then you come back home and start off by going to your mother/sister and you realise that you have problems to solve. You get a few valuable contacts and you start making money by doing these tasks.

The cutscenes are all worth watching, you just do not skip them, they blend well, they are not boring, they are not too long.

The graphics are top notch, the details are impressive. The combat is really smooth and well polished.

I have played with a controller and keyboard/mouse on the pc. The controls are great no matter your preference. I prefer the controller to drive, and the mouse/keyboard for foot action/aiming.

The playboy collection is nice.

I found only one bug/glitch in 3 hours, it's when you stealth kill a sitting ennemy, theres some weird animation problem (x360). Other than that it felt like a movie.

9/10 , a must.
