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."

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.

I don't think he was referring to the quality of porting to PC, but rather to the game itself. Huge sandbox city and storyline was done well. Yeah the PC version could have easily been the best but it wasn't ported well. We all know that it has a lot of issues.

For me though, the MP gameplay was rather shallow. Handful of weaons, poor weapon mechanics, etc.. It was good for MP, but not fantastic. No dedicated servers, no modding, poor performance, etc..
