Mafia II is a third-person action-adventure video game, the sequel to Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven. It is developed by 2K Czech, previously known as Illusion Softworks, and is published by 2K Games. The game is set from 1943 to 1951 in Empire Bay (the name is a reference to New York's state nickname "The Empire State"), a fictional city based on San Francisco and New York City, with influences from Chicago and Detroit. The game features a completely open-ended game map of 10 square miles. No restrictions are included from the start of the game. There are around 50 vehicles in the game, as well as licensed music from the era.
A few interesting things here under Mafia II. The first is that the extra grunt that's on offer from the HD 6970 Lighting helps move away from that 60 FPS average that is only just achieved on the reference HD 6970. At the highest resolution we also see that the Lightning is able to outperform the GTX 580 by what equates to almost 10%.
