Now back home, in a new New Orleans, Lincoln is dedicated to rebuilding his life, but established ties keep him from exiting the city. It'll take more than a few friends to make it in this new world. Intense gun fights, hand-to-hand combat, white knuckle driving and street smarts will all be required. But with the right crew, tough decisions and some dirty hands, it's possible to ascend to the top of the city's underworld. It's about time to create a new family. Expand

    Mafia 3 is a title that should be tried to the end to be appreciated. The story of Lincoln Clay is worth to be played, because too often the narrative plot is put aside in favor of high resolution textures and stunning special effects.

    If anything, I think the game is worth checking out for the story alone. It’s unfortunate that the gameplay is so much of a slog that some players may not think the story is worth the trouble. However, if you have the time, the extra coin, and love mob stories, this tale has a satisfying end.

    Mafia III does most things right, though. It is an enjoyable game, one that has probably the best licensed soundtracks for a game outside of a music-based game. The combat and cover mechanics work really and the cut-scenes allow the story to progress smoothly in the wonderfully presented city of New Bordeaux.

    Mafia 3's goals are ambitious and even laudable, but to tell a serious story about race, especially within the form of an open-world action game, requires heavy lifting. For all of the writing's attempts to push the genre forward, its game design is trapped in the open-world conventions of five years ago. That stale foundation isn't strong enough to hold the weight of Mafia 3's words — even if they're words that are worth hearing.

    The story and characters are excellent and the game is enjoyable, but the open world detracts from the experience rather than adding to it.

    Hangar 13 has done a terrible job on the PC port. But even ignoring all those pesky technical issues, Mafia 3 suffers from lack of variety. The game’s open world is dead and artificial, while the great atmosphere and competent storytelling feel wasted.

    It tells its story well, with smart writing and some superb characterisation that elevate its simple revenge plot. Ultimately, however, it never capitalises on its open world potential, instead succumbing to an almost constant lull of tediously unimaginative repetition that makes for a boring and dated open-world shooter.

    I don't understand people complaining about the graphics. Are we really playing the same game ?? Ok there are bugs and graphics issues, I'm aware of it, but nothing really important. People juste reviewing with a score of 0 juste because of that ? 30fps ? Seriously ???
    Well, they just miss a great plot and a great game.

They was making 1-2 trailers every day one month before release but they didn't have enough time to remove 30 FPS lock and ugly blur. People say there is upscale, same was using in Quantum Break that makes game in 1080p looks like 720. Cant be sure but I was able to achieve true high quality only in DSR- QHD Expand
