I'm thinking about getting it too, but don't want to spend the 40 dollars without knowing about it. I wish more developers would just release a damn demo.

Well, there is plenty of action in that game I can tell you that. Graphics? I will say better than GTA3 (especially on the characters). Character faces are sooooooooo detailed, I was really stunned. Much better than in SOF2. Car details are awsome, so is the driving. Each car handles differently. Controls are "ok". I think GTA3's are much better suited. What else ? ask if you want :)

How is the performance? I just get a feeling that game will run terribly.

Max details, 1280x1024 and 2x AA about 30 FPS

Ya, i've been playing this game for a while now about half way through single player, but game performance is pretty crappy, anyone know of any tweaks that will make this game run better?

Thanks :)

I got it yesterday, and haven't played too much yet, but it seems pretty fun. The performance is not very good though; I play at 1024x768 with all the details up, and get anywhere from 17-35 fps when I play. Not good for a 2.3 ghz. Perhaps it's my old video card...

Fragile, I get the same type of performance, even with my video card, seems the engine itself wasnt optimized very well. But I find it runs a bit better with Vsync on, im trying out different settings at the moment, so I will have to see.

Yeah, even resolution doesn't make a difference, which is disheartening; that usually means it's CPU limited, and that doesn't make sense on a 2.3 ghz. I wonder if a new video card would even help that much, especially considering you said performance wasn't much better on your 4400.

I played a lot more of it today, and I must say, this is, in my mind, game of the year. The story line is interesting and very well done, which is something I haven't seen in years. It's very mature and well acted. The missions are fresh, not GTA 3 rip offs, and everything moves along at a great pace. This game rocks.

I must ask the question...The image that you use...who is that chick? She looks familiar, but I cannot put a finger on it...? :)

Yes, very good game, I beat it yesterday and enjoyed all of it, good story line and good ending, worth playing all the way through :)

It's Jennifer Connelly, who has been in A Beautiful Mind, Requiem for a dream, and dark city. I saw the full picture of it on a magazine at Barnes and noble, then went and found it online, because she looks so damn good in it.

DAMN this is a good game!
My only issue with the gameplay so far is that racetrack level...didn't enjoy that much...but the storyline is top notch, performance could be a bit better, loads too much, boggin the system down a lot...

I am sick and tired of this **** too. Can't anyone make a game that runs decently anymore? Fragile in your sig it says radeon 9700 pro which is the fastest vid card on the market right. Plus a 2 ghz + processor? WTF? Um and someone else with a gf4? Wtf? That game should EXTREMELY fast with those systems. 35 fps is not fast. It should run at about 60 minimum. God learn to program an engine.

I had a crush on her, when I was a kid, after seeing Labyrinth. She's just as much a beauty in Pollock (excellent film) as she was in The Rocketeer. She doesn't even really look 32, if you ask me. Fine wine, I tell ya.

Huh? Oh, and Mafia is a pretty cool game. :)

i got mafia today(9-27-02) basically i was tired of waiting for other games to be released (like ut2003 & nolf2) so i bought it, and have been intensly into since installing it. it takes a little while to get use to this type of gameplay but it is a well done game. my advice.."if you havent bought it, go to the nearest store and grab it" ......" it rocks! http://mafia.godgames.com/main.html
