Mafia II Demo
Mafia II is a sandbox-style third-person shooter video game which is the sequel to Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven. The game is developed by 2K Czech, previously known as Illusion Softworks, and published by 2K Games. Development of Mafia II was announced on August 21, 2007 at the Leipzig Games Convention. The game is set in the 1940s and 1950s in Empire Bay, a fictional city that is based on New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago and San Francisco. The name is a reference to New York's state nickname, "The Empire State".
The game experience of Mafia II involves realistic controls featuring a standard action and violent action button, as well as context sensitive situations. The game introduces a cover mechanic not seen in the previous game which allows Vito to hide behind objects while in a shootout. There are over 70 extremely detailed vehicles - including sports cars, city buses, tractor trailers, station wagons, and more. The game also introduces new weapons, like the MG42, and includes a few from the original game, like the Colt M1911A1. Empire Bay's radio stations complete the experience with a wide variety of popular music from the 1940s and 1950s.
High settings were used with PhysX and VSYNC off and 8x anisotropic filtering. The in-game benchmark was used for testing.
Again, mix-fire holds above the ECS GTX 460 1GB with its consistent lead over the HD 5770. The ECS GTX 460 is still very playable at these high settings in Mafia II, which cannot be said of the HD 5670 or 5750.
