This one ought to appeal to all you fans of "The Godfather" and "The Sopranos," because Mafia II is an organized crime drama brought to interactive life. The original laid the framework for the future, and we expect the sequel to be bigger, better, and darker in just about every possible way. Thanks to this world premier from the VGAs this year, we're finally able to get a sneak peak at the game, and we think it looks promising. Perhaps tops on our "must-feature" list is the inclusion of an engaging storyline; no crime drama works without one, so we're hoping that 2K recognizes the need for a great script. We'll have more on this for you on Mafia II - including the release date - in due time.
