Born the son of a poor immigrant, Vito is a beaten down Italian American who is trying to escape the life of poverty that consumed his childhood.
It was on the streets that Vito learns that joining the Mafia is the only route to wealth and respect for people of his standing. Wanting to escape the life of hardship that his father led, he dreams about becoming a "Made Man."
A petty criminal his whole life, Vito, along with his childhood friend, Joe, will descend into the world of organized crime.
Together, they will work to prove themselves to the Mafia as they try to make their names on the streets. Starting with low-level jobs like robbery and stealing cars, Vito and Joe escalate quickly up the Mafia family ladder... but the life as a wise guy isn't quite as glamorous as it seems.

Been looking at some of the other videos of Mafia II and I must admit I'm really looking forward to it. Loved the first game and this looks to be a solid sequel, so very interested indeed.
If you liked the first one you'll expect a somewhat similar experience when buying the second. The basic of the game being the same, but with improvements (improved graphics, additions to gameplay etc.).
Have you even played the first mafia? the first mafia revolutionized the sandboxing/gta style of gameplay. go over the speed limit - get a ticket. run a red light - ticket. cops find a weapon on you - jail. point is, it was a different game.
of course the gameplay is going to stay the same. after all, "why fix it if it isn't broken". if the gameplay is good and they make another, of course it's going to feel the same. the only difference is the games story and that's why you play it. you play games for the fun, the story, and/or if your a multiplayer fanatic you play online only. if you like the first game enough, you buy the second sequel to the game and enjoy that why? because it's different.
and Soul Reaver? they never made a new Soul Reaver since Legacy of Kain: Defiance which was released around the 2004-2005 era.
