Good morning! And it is a good morning here at the Rock, Paper, And Shotgun Gazette, because we have the trailer for Mafia 2 after the jump. While the trailer itself shows little more than goodfellas having a good time, fans of the original will know what to expect from Illusion Softworks open-world gangsterism: stylish action, period atmosphere, and horrendous violence. Of course it was one of those games that caused some debate – its brokenness conjured some frowns and spawned many grumbles – but that’s no reason to think that this sequel, due Autumn 2009, isn’t worth following. it’s a game that has just as many ardent fans. We’ll hopefully have an interview with the developers for you in the new year.
