? It's for PC too:

2K Games, a publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO), today announced that it will publish Mafia 2, a sequel to the original Mafia title that sold more than two million copies worldwide and helped popularize the gangster genre. Featuring a deep mobster-driven narrative packed with both behind-the-wheel and on-foot action, Mafia 2 is the sequel fans have been clamoring for. The game is being developed by Illusion Softworks, developers of the original Mafia title, for next generation consoles and Games for Windows.

Analizing the screen

The game use shadows maps, - - massive use - like in Crysis and another next gen games . Very far object has shadows

The screen has much bloom Very happy

The textures not has great resolution - has relation with the bloom :D

the animation looks nice ..

The two cars are the same model and car Wink

In the leg of the friend of Vito , is very visible the poligons - not is a render Cg , but the screen is with some free camera - like in other engines , in the console like as STALKER

Does anyone think that this kind of bloom looks good? It's really been the thing for the last few years, somebody must like it right?

Yeah EGM is console only magazine. I remember one time EGM added PC games in, and a lot of readers complained so they removed PC selection and focus on consoles only.

Mafia 2 IS coming to PC. Dont worry. ;)

Not really....On a rare occasion MAYBE....But the bloom in that shot is OUT OF CONTROL!!! Way too much...Settle down devs, settle down with the bloom...

No it doesn't look good. Makes it look unnatural imo. Bloom has its uses, but it should be used sparingly and subtle.

maybe the consoles will use bloom, the pc may use HDR?

I dout that since the consoles can handle HDR just as good as the PC and even add AA when most of the time the combination of the two don't work on the PC.

Maybe their just really bad shots?

exactly. they are **** quality magazine scans, I'll wait for some high res screens to hit the web before I make a final judgement on the graphics ;) the original screenshots look pretty amazing...

Bloom is almost always added to games with HDR, otherwise you couldn't express the excess brightness correctly.

However it does look like it's using just bloom in those shots, not HDR.

The cool thing is the graphics don't look impossible like those first videos they released, but still look great.

EGM and even Game Informer cannot be trusted to list PC when there is a PC version coming... silly magazines. I don't know how you can be "Electronic Gaming Monthly" and not cover a huge section of the market.

In any case, crappy scans, but the game should be awesome.

The graphics looks very good ;) . The shadows system is good, like the shadows maps of Crysis - with shadows jitering , I believe . And the shadows draw distance is impresive, look this screen and the far cars ;)

http://i25.tinypic.com/n5hru9.jpg

or the shadows in this screen , very good shadows
