Mafia 1 vs. Mafia 2 graphics showdown: What happened the last 8 years?

It's eight years since Mafia 1 hit the stores. Soon Mafia 2 will appera as well and so it's time to compare the graphics of both games. The comparison screenshots between Mafia 1 and Mafia 2 shows in detail what 2k czech did during the last eight years.
Mafia II
It was 2002 when Mafia was released and now it is time to have a look at Mafia 2, which will hit the stores in August. The first part of the gangster epos used the LS3D-Engine while Mafia 2 will use the Illusion-Engine. 2k czech evolved the LS3D-Engine, set a new name (Illusion, the former name of 2k czech) and added some extensive physics support.

Lets have a look at Lost Heavon 2002 and Empire Bay 2010. Our click comparisons show the difference between Mafia and Mafia 2 in detail. Therefore we used simliar scenes to show what happend in the past eight years. While most of the graphics clearly got better, some textures could be eight years old - a tribute on crossplattform-developing.
