It puts an end to several years of spekulsjoner about the future of the franchise. The game should continue to focus on organized crime as the previously released titles.

Looking forward to the story, Mafia 1 had a nice one.
I don't want to be a guy who said that this game will not be a good one or it will be a disappointment but there is a one very important thing which happened in Mafia 2 which is downgrade ( Youtube.com ). If you don't know the reason why it had been so much downgraded it's because Daniel Vávra (the creator of Mafia 1) have been left out in development and many features have been cut.
Also, here is full gameplay ( Youtube.com ) and here is a very interesting analysis of Mafia 2 from gamescon and final version ( Youtube.com ).
I'm still looking forward to that game but I will not preorder or buy it at day 1.
Still, Mafia 1 is the best and I don't believe it will be a better (Mafia) game than the first one.
