On Mafia II's Open World

IncGamers has a quote from an interview with 2K Games they will publish soon where they reflect on the open world being created for Mafia II, their upcoming criminal life sequel. They spoke with senior producer Denby Grace, who says to expect this to be the pinnacle of such games: "As well as the story, the level of detail and realization of the world really is an amazing technical achievement for the team here at 2K Czech," he tells them. "No other open world city comes close with the texture quality, attention to detail and destructibility of our environments."

GTA IV is definitely the benchmark and I'll be very impressed (and pleasantly surprised) if they can surpass it.

Are you being sarcastic?

I wouldn't exactly call GTA IV a "benchmark", unless you want to call it a benchmark for how NOT to port something to the PC.

Ultra long load times (even on the fastest of machines) and no FSAA support take a lot of points off what could have potentially been THE PC game to own.
