Mafia: Definitive Edition is a remake of mixed flavours. Some elements are just as they
used to be, and it's great. Some elements are just as they used to be, and it's awful.
Mixture of aged mechanics and amazing graphics, new voices, great old story and
some added, yet bad storylines, make it not such a perfect remake. But it sure is
worth your time, whether you are a fan of the original or not. The moral of the story
survived in all its glory, just be sure to focus your attention to the details where Mafia
used to and still shines the most.
If you're a fan of the original Mafia then you should give this remake a try. It captures the spirit of the game while also making it a thoroughly modern shooter. If you never played Mafia, then this doesn't feel like a nostalgia project but a new game. The split structure of the story mode and open world may be unusual when lined up against its current competitors, but if you find yourself lost in large open worlds like Assassin's Creed and are looking for something that has more respect for your time, Mafia may be for you.
Mafia definitive Edition is a good remake. Visually, the game is sublime and the few small additions, especially concerning the driving are appreciable. If this 2020 version suffers from a lot of technical problems and cannot completely hide that the original game is 18 years old, the quality of writing and the mafia atmosphere offer a great moment of immersion in the underworld.
The main difference between the remake and the original game is that the latter was outstanding for its time, while the Definitive Edition is “merely” good. Of course, that doesn’t mean it’s not worth your time. What’s crucial here is the fact that Hangar 13 approached the original’s narrative with proper respect and refrained from changing it too much. Mafia: Definitive Edition might not be remarkable as an open-world action game, but it still has the story worthy of the most revered gangster movies. [12/2020, p.28]
