We’re all waiting for a new Mafia game, but until it’s released we’ll have to find as much about it through leaked videos. Recently there was a video that shows several minutes of gameplay so I would like to share my impressions about it.
Although video is in moderate quality we can still find a lot of informations about the gameplay itself. According to the video you can choose the level of realism in this game. You can choose how will weather influence your driving, for example if it rains your car will slide if you drive it too fast or if you want you can just put weather effects to be cosmetic and they won’t influence your driving. Interesting thing is that you can now repair your engine if it’s damaged. Speaking of repairs, if you don’t want to mess with engine you can take your car to the repair shop. Mechanic will repair your car there but he can also change your plates, which is useful if you want to get away from the cops. Additionally, you can change color of your car at repair shop and you’ll even be able to change your rims.
As you can see new Mafia will offer some form of customization. Also, hand to hand combat is bit different than in previous game. Now you won’t just throw punches like in the old game. You’ll take a combat stance and camera will move to the side so you can have good view of the fight. In addition, if you knock your opponent to the ground, you can now pick him up and perform combo attacks on him. Hand to hand combat looks better and a lot more realistic than in the previous game. And when you’re at the low heath, screen turns black and white which really looks nice, it’s nothing special but still it looks nice. As for the graphic, I can’t say much because the quality of the video is not the best, but it looks decent so far.
Anyhow, if you want to see it for yourself, check the video below.
