will feature over 60 cars, all of them driveable.
Most of the cars will be presented in a variety
of models: coupe, sedan, cabriolet, and speedster.
We were privileged to watch the cars in Mafia
drive around the city, and we can tell you it
looked very easy to control and the game ran very
The cars handle very realistically, this mean
that most will have a high centre of gravity,
so gently does it around those bends. Quote from
are taking into consideration the real parameters
of vehicles when calculating their reactions and
behaviour: maximum speed, acceleration, maximum
output, gear and valve ratios, the mass and its
distribution on to the axles, the type of suspension,
friction coefficient, etc."
be mistaken you can go fast around the city, just
don't expect it to handle like
"Need for speed 3"
The body work on the vehicles is a major step forward
in gaming pleasure, almost every part of it is damage
rendered. This means you can have great fun with a
baseball bat if someone pinches your parking space
:) Quote from illusion Softworks:

you have seen the movie you will know what we mean,
it shows a good clip of a guy smashing up a car with
a baseball bat.
controls are very simple to use, it's basically
forwards, backwards, left and right. The controls
are very similar to hidden and dangerous, so even
the worst drivers in the world should have few problems
steering around the City.
Quote Illusion Softworks again:
remains our number one priority, and for this reason,
the controls will
be adapted to allow a more action-style driving.
We are striving to achieve even better handling
and reaction of cars than in GRAN TURISMO - which
is, probably, the best game
of this type created so far."
And from what we saw of
Andrew Morleys drivine (producer at Take2 interactive)
along the footpaths is also very easy to do :)
An added bonus is a feature that allows you to play
Mafia like "Need for speed", again here
is a quote from illusion softworks:
the completion of the game, a special bonus item
appears in the menu, which will allow the player
to carry on driving the cars collected in the form
of circuit racing The circuits will be located throughout
the town, in its surroundings, and will run past
the most interesting locations. The player will
get - for free - another game of the NEED FOR SPEED
if you like driving games Mafia will have something
for you, the sheer number of cars is staggering,
no other game I can think of has anywhere near as
many vehicle options as this, it truly is a marster
