    Mafia 2: Definitive Edition is the best way to play one of the most enthralling stories of the past decade. A wonderful upgrade for a wonderful title, don’t miss it.

    Mafia II Definitive Edition is still the excellent game that was on day one, with an open world not so open and a mature story. Remastering is good and the addition of all the DLC increases the contents available.

    Mafia II: Definitive Edition doesn't offer any extra content compared with the original version but still impress me with the immersive story and decent gameplay even after a decade. The graphic improvement doesn't stand out but there is no doubt that Definitive Edition is the best way to experience the adventure.

    Despite not being a full on remake and still retaining the flaws of the original game, Mafia II Definitive Edition is a fairly enjoyable experience that, thanks to a good work of remastering, works decently ten years after its first release.

    A poor remaster of a particularly good game, the Definitive Edition offers only but a few new things to owners of the original game and a lazy attempt to attract new buyers.

    Mafia II: Definitive Edition is not especially a good remaster... Avoid if the game is fresh in your memories.

    Mafia II: Definitive Edition is a remaster specially designed for nostalgic players fans of the original game. It is nice, pleasant visually speaking, the atmosphere is still efficient, until you see that some textures are poor, the animations are still stuck in 2010.

    The graphic is terrible and they didn't change much. It is just a cash grab to make some money for them.

    Отвратительная оптимизация на ps4. Постоянные фризы и зависания.
