Ah, Mafia. Such an amazing game. It’s sad that its sequel was not as good as we’d hoped to. In fact, Mafia 2 was one of the first games that had a really, really horrible ending. Our guess is that the develepoment team wanted to push some SP DLC stories after the game’s release in order to keep gamers interested in it (and milk their game for as long as they could). It didn’t work out for them though. But anyway, back to Mafia. Our reader ‘Jonathan Gustafsson’ has captured some footage from a mod that converts Mafia 1 to the RAGE Engine.
This project is still a WIP and is being developed by four people: Alber2gt, xXaerooff2Xx, nkjellman and Blaster_nl. The team aims to convert all the map with all areas(if possible with HD visuals), all mafia cars and all interiors(including mission interiors and Salieri’s Bar).
Those interested can keep an eye on this mod by visiting its forum thread on GTAForums.
