  1. Yet Mafia oozes class, polish, and style like no other game so far this year. To not "experience" Mafia is a far greater crime than any in the Salieri family ever committed.
  2. The question here is: why don't you own this game already? This is an excellent game.
  3. Outside of my complaint with the racing level and a few very minor issues, Mafia is a really immersive game. The story is very good, and the cutscenes and voice acting are of the highest caliber.
  4. For a superbly crafted single player experience you probably won’t find many to touch it, everything combines to create such a cinematic experience that you can’t help but find yourself completely encompassed into it.
  5. As cinematic games go, Mafia is in a league of its own.
  6. I really enjoyed the missions, and even though they could be tough, the movie-like atmosphere makes for a truly compelling gaming experience.

    The pacing seems a little off in this game, and to compound the issue, there's no in-mission save. [Dec 2002, p.120]

    Yo this game rocks, its like GTA 3 thrown back in time. But of course the gaming engine is different so naturally the game is nothing Yo this game rocks, its like GTA 3 thrown back in time. But of course the gaming engine is different so naturally the game is nothing visually like GTA 3, in fact, it is better. This game kicks, its like living in the footsteps of Al Capone. Expand

    Probably one of the best games I have played. I don't know why everyone is complaining with XP. I have Windows XP Service Pack 2 and itProbably one of the best games I have played. I don't know why everyone is complaining with XP. I have Windows XP Service Pack 2 and it works fine. Even though its been out for a long time, still worth getting it and playing it. Even after you beat the main game, there is still other parts of the game to finish before truly "beating" it.

    Definately a great game.

    The best part of the games in the mafia series is the ingenious plot and the ending. The good gameplay and lack of DLC gives this 10/10 no less. (The translation was provided by Google translator.)

    The first mafia is a classic, even in 2018, the game is fun and cheerful. In some places, it is even hardcore, definitely taking to play and re-play.

    I am 16 years old. It's been 9 years since I first played this game on socket 462. This is still my favorite game, a true masterpiece.
