Yes he is & he is in the story.That Mafia II ending was pretty brutal. Maybe he is still alive?
saw some reviews and people mentioned its a grind fest. is it?Alright completed the demo. Played for around 2.5 hrs. People are right this game fails miserably when it comes to open world. The visuals looks blurry but after applying the fix for it it somewhat got better. The story is presented well which certainly will hold your interest. Infact If you want to play this game only for the story then I would say go ahead with it.
Now for the rest. This game tried to become GTA this time but failed badly. Instead of going a step forward it went 2-3 steps backwards. It is even inferior to mafia 2. The world looks good but its dead its empty you cannot do much in it. In gta you drive around & do funny things because the AI or npcs react in some way or they are busy in doing some stuff. In mafia 3 nothing happens even if you exceed your speed limit the cops DON'T DO ANYTHING. If you park at wrong side you can easily get away they again wont do anything, which was a signature feature of both mafia 1 & 2 games. People loved it because of those realistic things. In this game If you kick or punch an NPC character they will just fall & lay to the ground no one will do anything there is no reaction. I was thinking about buying this game but after playing the demo I think I will wait for the price to fall a bit more.
I will list few Positive things in case if you are interested to know. But do keep in mind apart from this rest all are bad.
+Beautiful world design
Yes he is & he is in the story.
I saw the same too. I have only played the demo thus cannot say much about that. It is another thing which kept me away from getting this game. Thus in demo I mainly focused on the open world part & AI and they are really bad.saw some reviews and people mentioned its a grind fest. is it?
