The ambitious follow-up to Illusion Softworks' previous epic mob life experience, Mafia II covers Vito Scaletta's attempt to climb up the blood-soaked rungs of the mob ladder. It's notorious for having been a mess development-wise, hampered by a transition to the PS3 and Xbox 360 console generation, production being long and slow, and with the publisher being quite demanding, eventually leading to a lot of planned features that were promised and even shown before release getting scrapped to quickly get the game out the door, resulting in some bad initial reaction. The result is a linear story-driven game that's somewhat lackluster in replay value (especially compared to its predecessor), but hey, Playboy mags!
Lots of other stuff. Test level in Joe's Adventures, various unused areas (usually in Joe's Adventures) and some more stuff in tables.sds.

Mafia II: The Untold Stories
Text Only Remains
Only text remains for some scrapped vehicles.
00_60_00_0005:Sicilian Cart 08_51_01_0013:Load the bikes on the truck.
Bikes were seen in an early screenshot, references to them are seen along with the objectives from Chapter 8.
|Early Screenshot of Bikes||Final Game Location Of Bike Area|
- Forklift (ID 71): Added to the files after DLC "Joe's Adventures" is installed, the in-game model lacks its own texture thus making it completely green. The motor sound is also present, but the forklift for some reason doesn't use it.
- Moscardo AS37 (ID 2): Only a texture sheet remains.
- Mannschaftstransportwagen (ID 74): Also only a texture sheet remains.
Forklift motor sound
00_71_00_0029:Betting on hounds BO_P.missions/Lokace_Betting_Office/Betting_office/BettingOfficeMenu
You could once bet on dog races.
There are some leftovers of a public transport system, the logic of stopping at bus stops seems to be fully implemented but never activated in-game.
ENTER_BUS 00_57_00_0036:Bus Stop
00_50_00_0046: Buy a newspaper 00_50_00_0104: Buy AB Press 20_51_01_0005:Talk with the vendor again. 20_51_01_0009:Talk with the vendor at the shopping booth and buy a hamburger. 00_57_00_0024:Appliances 00_71_00_0026:Buying appliances ApplianceShop: missions/Lokace_Appliance_shop/Appliance_shop/ApplianceShopMenu 00_64_01_0020:Richard Beck Realty
Options for buying things from newspapers to food and even buying furniture and houses.
Normally, you can choose between 3 types of difficulty: Easy, Medium and Hard. However, it seems like developers planned an extra difficulty which should really test how good you are at dodging bullets.
00_59_03_0000:Difficulty 00_59_03_0004:Extreme 00_59_03_0009:Think twice before using Extreme level. It is difficult even for experts or highly experienced players. 00_61_04_0003:You think you're a gangster? Give this a shot. Very challenging.
Drive By Shooting
Complete flawlessly working code still exists in-game and is actually used by NPCs but there is no regular way how can player try it by himself.
00_61_16_0045:Fire an equipped weapon from car 14_58_00_0001:Do you want to be the driver? 14_58_00_0002:Yes. 14_58_00_0003:No.
Choices for wanting to shootout the car or not. The fact that you have to choose implies that this would be in a mission. An early screenshot shows Vito firing out a car.
20_51_01_0058:There is a fistfight for honor and money. Gain both of them. 20_51_01_0059:Beat him. Smash him. Annihiliate him. Just don't let him do that to you, and stay in the circle.
I'd describe this but YOU DON'T TALK ABOUT FIGHT CLUB!

I need money. 14_58_03_0004:No. 15_58_00_0001:Who do I kill?
Some sort of job system. Complete with dialog.
00_50_00_0048: You've learned to open safes.
It appears that you were going to gain "Lock Picking XP". In the final game, you can only pick locks on cars. There is a safe in the mission "Enemy of the State".
00_50_03_0003:The police want to check your gun license. 00_64_04_0012:License to Carry 00_64_06_0007:You need a gun license 04_51_01_0007:Pick up your gun license from Giuseppe.
These lines found in the "TextDatabase.dat" and the "TextDatabase_M2.dat" files show that you required a gun license and was seen in the Gamescom 2009 trailer. The last line implies you were to get the license during a mission.
Removed Menu Options
00_59_18_0000:Quick fight 00_59_18_0001:Quick race 00_59_18_0002:Free ride 00_59_18_0003:The Story 00_61_05_0000:Starts a quick combat 00_61_05_0001:Starts a race with selected car 00_61_05_0002:Starts downloadable content free ride 00_61_05_0003:Select and play your extra downloaded episodes
At some point in development, more options were available on the game's menu.
00_53_02_0001: Respect: %d/100 02_52_00_0003: Your respect level increases for completing missions and jobs. The higher the respect level is, the lower the prices in the stores, police fines or bribes. The level will decrease when you kill police officers, civilians, and for other offenses and prices will increase simultaneously. 00_50_00_0103: You killed the innocent. Your reputation is reduced!
The Reputation system from the last game was going to return.
03_51_01_0004:Check out the subway station on the west side to look for the mystery man. SU_P.missions/Lokace_Subway_Station/Subway_station/SubwayShopMenu
Remains of underground subway tracks can still be found by clipping under the map. Part of the subway is accessible in one mission in DLC "Joes Adventures" and can be permanently activated by replacing file "subway.sds" with the one from DLC.
NOTHING WAS SPARED! Even sitting down was scrapped. This appears to be very upsetting as game-archivist.com puts it "Imagine just sitting at home looking out the window watching the world pass by while you listen to the radio and news, or coming home from a mission on a rainy night, sitting down and watching the fire in the fireplace. 2K missed an obvious and easy chance to allow players to further appreciate the fantastic world they made." The feels.
00_50_00_0291:Get in the taxi 00_50_00_0296:Use the taxi service 00_50_00_0297:Stop here 00_50_00_0298:Step on it! 00_50_00_0299:Skip ride 00_50_00_0300:Wait here 00_59_16_0030:Call Taxi 00_59_16_0064:Taxi Skip Ride 00_59_16_0065:Taxi Set Destination 00_59_16_0066:Taxi Burn The Wheel 00_59_16_0067:Taxi Stop 00_59_16_0068:Taxi Wait 02_52_00_0001:To hail a taxi, press Y. 02_52_00_0030:You need to take a taxi. 02_52_00_0034:You forgot your suitcase - it's in the trunk of the taxi.
Multiple lines for a Taxi transport system. An early screenshot shows Vito getting in the back of a taxi.
Trunk Storage System
Appears to be all that remains of a system to store items in your car's trunk, a system that 2k confirmed. Though you can still open and close it in the final game.
ID 20: jizda na cervenou (driving while there is red light on traffic lights)
This police offence was seen on Gamescom but it didn't make its way to the final game.
20_58_00_0000:How do you react? 20_58_00_0001:Try to bribe cop 20_58_00_0002:Show gun license 20_58_00_0003:Try to escape
Early text for encounters with police however the "Show gun license" was removed from the final text. See above for details.
"Rags To Riches"
There are many pieces of evidence showing that the DLCs "Betrayal of Jimmy" and "Jimmy's Vendetta" were once going to be one called "Rags To Riches". For starters, many of the DLC files have "rtr" or "RtR" in their names.
Second, in the "scriptname.txt" section of the "pc\sds_en\script\fr_italy_10.sds" has the following text:
Lastly in the "TextDatabase_RTR.dat" section of the "pc\sds_en\missionscript\fr_game_director.sds" file one can find the earlier version of the opening text:
|21_52_80_0003:After so long, you are free again. You lost everything but your courage and your hunger for vengeance. Four men control this city. Four gang bosses who know only blood and violence. Four traitors who'll stop at nothing. Your mission is to destroy their organizations, and ruin those bastards financially. Kill them all.||You are free again. You have lost everything but your hunger for vengeance. Two men control this city. Two gang bosses who know only blood and violence. Two traitors who will stop at nothing - Sal Gravina and Tam Brodie. Destroy their gangs, then kill them.|
05_51_01_0012:Mission failed: Jolanda died! 20_51_01_0028:Talk with Loony in the Maltese Falcon. 20_51_01_0029:Talk with Loony in the Maltese Falcon. 20_51_01_0030:Cover Loony's back. 00_70_00_0514:Ambulance Driver 03_51_01_0012:AN EXPENSIVE CAR FOR CHARLIE 03_51_01_0013:Steal the custom Lassiter. 03_51_01_0014:Get the Lassiter to Charlie in perfect condition. 02_51_01_0024:MONIQUE 02_51_01_0025:Take Monique to the theater in Midtown. 02_58_00_0004:Can you escort Monique?
Remains for characters named Jolanda, Loony, an Ambulance Driver, Monique, and Charlie who has an unused biography grouped with the "City Albums":
00_62_07_0002: Carlos "Charlie" Lopez owns a series of body shops in Empire Bay. Born in Cuba, he came to America in 1922, barely speaking English and hoping to find work. He drifted between farms in the southern states, eventually learing to repair agricultural vehicles. By 1930, Charlie had saved enough money to move to Empire bay and open his own garage. He expanded throughout the Great Depression by "legalizing" stolen cars, many of which were sold abroad by Vinci capo Derek Pappalardo. Despite making an honest living from his body shop chain, Charlie continues to provides these services to the mob.
According to 2K Games' Jack Scalici "Shooting is the game's core combat mechanic, and that's what all the work went into. If you want to fight without shooting, you can use your fists." Despite this claim, multiple remains of melee weapons ranging from HUD icons and texture sheets to completed and usable melee weapons can be found. Every unused item which doesn't have its own HUD icon uses the open-handed HUD icon which can be seen during regular gameplay in Chapter 3 when collecting crates. In the Mafia II, the SDS package "pc\sds\tables\tables.sds" has a file named "meleeweapons.XML". In the file is a list of melee weapons and stats, as well as a list of NPCs and the melee weapons they can use. Some of these weapons have been seen in early screenshots.

In the Windows version, if the game detects that a cracked version is being played, the player's health bar will every time get slowly drained entirely, leaving the player one hit of dying. Eating or drinking will just result in immediately starting to lose the regained health.
