    Well, the low FPS and bad AA are so bad in the demo, that even someone like me, who's never noticed stuff like that before, noticed it. So if it was in the final game, at least ONE of the 12 reviews would've mentioned it.

    Hi pal,Elizabeth said that when she played the game it was ok about AA and FPS.She said something like"It didn't go freezed".
    Sorry for my bad English

    PS>When you talk about AA and FPS problems you mean if the images go freezed?



    off topic,sorry

    Well, the demo had problems with aliasing, so the edges of objects looked really jagged.

    Same, I'm leaving after that (to go to the cruise). Tuesday I might stop by, and look around for IGN score, gamespots score, but other than that I'm gone.

    hope you have a nice cruise

    Hi everyone,

    I have a fresh news for ya
    Polish magazine "Play" gave Mafia 2 97/100

    Pros (i.a):
    - superb, living world, full of refind details
    - amazing story with real atmosphere of film

    Cons:
    - a bit too much driving

    Of course it's not all pros and cons from this review, but I'll have my magazine in about 3-4 hours, so stay tuned and I will post here the rest of it with the most interesting parts from review

    Cheers

    no game is perfect. Personally any reviewer that rates a game a 10/10 is usually because there either SERIOUSLY biased towards the game, or because there overly hyped.

    Indeed, I want some hype around MII. I mean even Kane and Lynch 2 had some hype around it by the reviewers, because they expected a more stable and fixed K&L1, and look how that turned out.

    At 4-5 p.m I will

    But you have to know polish language to understand it

    So it'll be better if I just read the whole review, choose interesting parts, translate them and post em' here.

    If I can manage, I will translate and post everything from that review.

    Ok, some interesting parts from PLAY's review.

    First of all, there are no more pros and cons, than those that I mentioned in my first post.

    So now it's time for the best piece of cake


    "The story is told in serious way, and though not without humour, there is no place for winking to players like in GTA. Many people waited for the second part of the Mafia, while fearing that the game does not meet expectations. My complies entirely - an interactive gangster movie in it's best form."

    "You can see how much effort went into that game world looked realistic as possible. Not only does the traffic appear genuine, and pedestrians do not walk aimlessly to disappear around the corner. I noticed two women who meet at the sidewalk, they begin to gossip, I can even listen what they speak about. A bit further up the guy stopped to buy a newspaper, someone else entered the telephone booth. I watch him and see that ended after a few minutes and went his way. I go to the main street and go to the backyard - a mechanic warms his hands at the fire burning in an old barrel. Not surprisingly, in the end it is winter, as shown by such details as the steaming manholes, and even the cap of snow on the roof of the car. Until
    I had to check it out - yes, snow blew away when I drive off a bit. Along the way, I passed an older gentleman who did not quite cautiously walked the icy sidewalk and fell."

    "Kidnappings, shootings, chases, easy money and women is the essence of gangster's life. The Mafia 2 has it all and in addition presented in such a perfect way, that GTA can hide himself."

    "The introduction teaching us how to open locks, then I'm gettin' weapon and I'm introduced to the owner of a junkyard. The guy is of Polish origin, so I immediately raised my confidence, the more that he pays for every stolen car with happiness."

    "Most of the missions starts with the ringin' phone, which breaks Vito's from dreaming and throws him out of bed at noon." Then the voice from telephone says, that he can't talk about it by phone and wants to meet you in some place."

    "In addition to the gun's colletion, which can be use to tap the opponents, in cutscenes mass of young ladies of easy virtue appears, which also do not avoid the bangin' . "
