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.

In our other HD 7970 reviews we had mentioned that the 119 FPS wall that AMD have been hitting since launch of Mafia II didn't exist anymore. Checking out the CrossFire results it looks like we've still got a wall, but its closer to the 140 FPS mark. Because of this we don't see massive gains at the lower resolutions; moving to 2560 x 1600, though, we do see a strong boost in performance, just not quite the 90% - 100% increase we've seen in a couple of other benchmarks.
