First Mafia II gameplay video features gunplay, cursing

Norwegian news site Dagbladet recently got its hands on some fresh gameplay footage from 2K Czech's upcoming mobster sim, Mafia II. It's since embarked on a long, tumultuous exodus from its Norwegian homeland, braving arctic chill and aquatic peril to reach it's final destination: Right here -- on this very site, after the jump, anxiously awaiting your viewership.

It looks pretty solid -- the gameplay revolves around a tried-and-true cover mechanic that third-person action fans will be no stranger to, and the cutscenes will likely appeal to that part of your brain that prevents you from turning the television off in the middle of a Godfather marathon. It's worth checking out -- but be warned, it's pretty NSFW. Mobsters have some serious potty mouths.
