  1. Everything about the game oozes both style and the replication of a 1930s era is second to none.
  2. With compelling storytelling, and one ingenious mission after another, Mafia has enough firepower to keep you playing until the end. [June 2004, p.132]

    Mafia, when compared to other Xbox games, is still one hot little package, but compared to itself, it leaves a little to be desired.

    Driving tasks are fun but the on-foot missions are much more entertaining. If you can stomach the glitchy camera, lock and load for a truly epic and cinematic gaming experience.
  5. A big part of what made the PC version be so great was the whole atmosphere; you felt like you were in Chicago in the 1930s. Unfortunately, the visual inedibility of the Xbox version takes a good chunk of this feeling.
  6. While there certainly are a lot of things that could have been done better with the Xbox version of Mafia, it still remains an enjoyable game.
  7. 75
    It is still a nice paced game that will take you a while to beat and require a fair bit of time for the not-so-talented gamer, but graphics have seemed to have dropped to a level that the PS2 can handle, and the camera angles are shocking along with the aiming system.

    A pretty crappy port of an Awesome PC game.
