  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]

    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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Cheat Code Central

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

    A pretty crappy port of an Awesome PC game.
