    The Definitive edition of Mafia 3 not only hasn't improved on the original version, but actually added tons of new bugs and glitches to it, making an already not so pleasant experience even worse.

    The story is pretty OK despite its heavy lean on worn mafia movie stereotypes and tropes. However, this remaster of Mafia II is hurt by its poor showing on the PlayStation 4 because of numerous and frequent problems within the most vital portions of the game. This is the kind of show I’d expect from something that was rushed out to the market and the results are pretty disappointing. You’re almost better off tracking down the original PC copy of the game until Hanger 13 and d3t Ltd. make the fixes that are so desperately needed.

    Un juego que debes jugarlo tu mismo, juego honesto que no tiene un marketing engañoso, sabe lo que te brinda, es muy divertido su historia,Un juego que debes jugarlo tu mismo, juego honesto que no tiene un marketing engañoso, sabe lo que te brinda, es muy divertido su historia, sus brutall kills, su ambientación, su contraste de luces, me gusta. Como te digo, no es un juego con el marketing de Lats 2 o Cyberpunk, por eso no tiene alta nota, pero es un juego honesto, muy bueno, decente Expand

    Must have for any of my Gangstas out there! Hopefully there will be a free PS5 patch to make it all look and play even better. 9/10

    This is a great game and if you like a great Mafia story then this is it!!! The 9 score is due to the glitches and the frame rate, butThis is a great game and if you like a great Mafia story then this is it!!! The 9 score is due to the glitches and the frame rate, but everything else is top notch. The sound track is incredible and the music is well placed for certain moments or missions in the game. Characters are all hard core and the end is epic! I paid 15 dollars for this edition and my first Mafia game....hope there is a Mafia 4 on next gen! Expand

    Mafia 3: Definitive Edition is for me the last stop, before the Remake of the original Mafia game. Just like Mafia 2, the third edition in theMafia 3: Definitive Edition is for me the last stop, before the Remake of the original Mafia game. Just like Mafia 2, the third edition in the series was a revisit for me. I played it, when it got released in 2016. And of course a lot of things have changed since then. DLC has got released, different clothes are available and a brand new racing mode is now available.

    I did find Mafia 3 enjoyable in 2016, of course this is the least “Mafia” game compared to the others, but the narrative and great cutscenes was the thing that I enjoyed the most of. Gameplay is quite repetitive, but I don’t mind it so much. There is a reason for it, and that been to tear down everything and everyone associated the Marcano crime family in the city of New Bordeaux. Car chases is fun, and you feel like been in an action movie car chase. And the music is just wonderful, and you feel the atmosphere from the 60’s. So if the game was named something else and wasn’t a part in the Mafia series, it would be an awesome game.

    So this is my thoughts on the game when it got released. Now it is updated with all the DLC’s for free.

    And I have one positive thing to say about the definitive edition. That is the free DLC. I didn’t buy them when they got released, so that was a great treat. And here the positive ends unfortunately. Because this game is not even 4 years as of writing and I think it already needs some sort of remaster. The game has more bugs and lagging compared to four years ago. Sometimes cutscenes doesn’t play right, with only the subtitles present. And when driving the game lags where in a few seconds you can’t hear the car engine. There even is a bug, where I could begin the last mission, before killing the last capo. And when you tried the last capo mission, the game just freezes and you can’t continue. So I managed to complete the game, without getting rid of the last capo.

    This is of course not a good way of finishing the road to the new remake of the original Mafia, so I hope the remake launches with a much more bugless game.

    Mafia 3 for me, will always be a good game memory, however it doesn’t fit the Mafia series. But a great narrative, with awesome music and car chases directly from an action movie, I do find it enjoyable.

    Really good game with a huge overhaul of mechanics and modern control layouts. The story is interesting, although quite tropey, and wellReally good game with a huge overhaul of mechanics and modern control layouts. The story is interesting, although quite tropey, and well acted. The accompanying soundtrack is also curated to fit the 60's aesthetic the game is based in. Each of the DLC chapters are really fun, engaging and interesting.

    Main reason for the low score is the game is very glitchy resulting in many game crashes. This wouldn't be too bad if this didn't reset trophy/achievement progression resulting in many, many playthroughs of the game and a severe amount of luck if you wanted to 100% it. Very frustrating because this game could've been so much more. This is truly the defining feature of the trilogy
    "the definitive edition but not really".

    Very bad Mafia game, easily even worse than original mafia (despite that it's out dated), what were they even thinking making game like this?
