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.

Moving into Mafia II we see some strong performance out of the card and where the HD 7850 fell over at 2560 x 1600, we can see that its big brother the HD 7870 manages to pull out a very playable 66 FPS which puts it ahead of the GTX 580 in this case. So far it's a strong showing for the new model - let's see if it continues.
