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.

Mafia II really begins to tell the story of what we're capable of here on this system. You're looking at an Intel / NVIDIA setup that performed well at 1680 x 1050, but at stock was just able to squeeze that 60 FPS average we need.

Our AMD one doesn't have that problem. Not only that, though, we can see we've even got enough performance to confortably play at 1920 x 1200 which again is fantastic news.
