You do not mess with the mafia. This trailer drives that point home quite well; if you weren't in attendance at GamesCom 2009 (fat chance as it was in Cologne, Germany), this is the gritty video goodness you missed. Mafia II is primed to build upon the solid foundation of its predecessor and offer more in the way of intense drama, brutal action, and of course, a dark, sinister, oddly appealing atmosphere that is suitable to such a premise. We expect a solid story to go along with the open-world feel, and we have every confidence that 2K will deliver a worthy sequel. Be on the lookout for it in late February.
