Mafia Remake (CryEngine)
One of the best game of "newer" times, in my 'book' is the original Mafia : The City of Lost Heaven.
The first-person-shooter came out in 2002 and finally a newer game had a significant amount of story-telling and great gameplay instead of just "fancy-graphics".
The game tells the story of Thomas "Tommy" Angelo, a Lost Heaven cab driver in the 1930's during the prohibition. One late night where Tommy is doing his cab duties, his path is suddenly crossed with those of two henchmen from the Sallieri family. After helping the two henchmen escape, Tommy seeks help from their organisation and is accepted into the "family".
The remake is first and foremost a pure graphical make-over, recreating the entire city and landscape in CryEngine. At this stage I do not have any expectations of re-creating the storyline and AI in the game.
