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.

We continue to see a nice boost in performance when we fire up Mafia II with some strong performance coming out of our ASUS offering. Unfortunately we don't have quite enough performance to pull in that 60 FPS average we like at 2560 x 1600, but we're not that far from it and you could get that average up with just a bit of a detail drop.
