  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 story was great and it had so many little mechanics that made it different from other games. for example the reloading system, were you always had to look if the magazine is empty before reloading. otherwise you lost the remaining ammo. this gave combat a strategic aspect, that (as far as i know) no game delivered till this day. i hope, they'll include this in the remake! when i think of mafia 1, i got nothing but love for this game 10/10 Expand

    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.
