[PAX-E] Mafia II's Time Period Isn't the Only Aspect That Feels Old

When the first Mafia game was released in 2002, it was easily one of the best PC games I played that year.  The characters and the story were extremely well done and more mature than they had been in other open-world games, and the fictional city of "Lost Heaven" felt like a real 1930s American city.  When the game's sequel was announced, I was eager to once again be taken back to a classical gangster time period and experience this more subversive slice of Americana.  Based on what I played at PAX East, though, it's a disappointing trip.
