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 hardly the benchmark for sandbox games. In terms of sandboxy features, it was sorely lacking compared to something like San Andreas or Saints Row 2.

Good to know, thanks.. Will check out Saints Row 2 :).

Be prepared for bad performance in the case of SR2. I didn't have any problems, but a lot of people did. But it feels a lot more like a sequel to San Andreas than GTA IV does. Over-the-top story, humorous/crude stuff (one of the minigames is driving around in a sewage truck literally spraying shit over everything.), and a lot more character & vehicle customization, and way more side-activities.
