  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]

    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.)

    One of the best gangster games of all time. a GTA for adults.

    The graphics are average, but the spot where it shines is the story. Mafia
    One of the best gangster games of all time. a GTA for adults.

    The graphics are average, but the spot where it shines is the story.

    Mafia story is similar to Godfather style, its full of plot twists and nice quotes, the gangster italian vibe is great in it.
    Characters are well written.
    World is semi open and nice to explore.
    Game is realistic.
    Shooting is risky and challenging and not childish.

    One of my favorite games.

    Mafia:The City of Lost Heaven is a great game! The graphics are not the best but if you see this game was made a pretty long time ago,like 9Mafia:The City of Lost Heaven is a great game! The graphics are not the best but if you see this game was made a pretty long time ago,like 9 years (in 2002).I've given this game a 9 rating because it's a very good game but not perfect either.The story is great,explains every part of Thomas Angelo's life,and you can enjoy a big adventure in this game.The music is very good,and the graphics are good for a 9 years old game.I saw lot's of reviews were people rated 0,1,2 or 4,that wasn't a decent rating.These people didn't even play the game or they are some trolls who want to spoil a such a good game!
    If you like the "mafia" type's of games I recommend to play this game.

    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.
