    I will admit that I was wary of 2K choosing Mafia to remaster, as the game was old and middle of the pack, but in hindsight it was a masterstroke: the story and structural core of the original was exceptional, but everything else had room to improve. 2K has thrown the sink at Mafia: Definitive Edition to make sure those improvements make an impact, and it’s barely possible to recognise the original under the lacquer.

    Mafia: Definitive Edition is a spectacular remake that brings us one of the games with the best graphics of this generation. Its exciting plot and great atmosphere take us back to the 1930s, where a cab driver gets into a war between mafias that will change his life.

    Despite the lack of innovation or novelties that would have added something to the experience while respecting the structure of the original, returning to Lost Heaven with this quality has been an offer that we could not refuse and neither should you.

    Oozing with 1930s atmosphere, Mafia: Definitive Edition is a successful rejuvenation of the best story in the series.

    Mafia: Definitive Edition is the best of both worlds. Its updated graphics bring Lost Heaven and its inhabitants to life without burdening them with modern game design elements. While the characters themselves haven’t aged as well, Mafia: Definitive Edition, though based on a game that’s nearly 20 years old, feels more refreshing than most open-world games.

    Mafia has finally regained its splendor and this remake will be a very good entry point for anyone who wants to discover a game that marked its time, with a little indulgence, while fans will appreciate this facelift that never betrays the essence of the original experience, while modernizing it despite its sometimes aging aspects.

    Telegraphed game design turns Mafia: Definitive Edition, once a subversive classic, into just another by-the-numbers cover shooter.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Mafia 1 Definitive Edition

    Nearly perfect. I finished the game after around 14 hours (560 achievement points), and only played very little free drive (hidden cars unlocked).

    story

    Everything I want to see in a Mafia game (conflict, violence, brutality, networking, etc.). The story is perfect for me, even if there were predictable moments, especially for mafia connoisseurs. But the entire story presentation in all of its cut scenes, the characters and the course are phenomenally good. The many references to Goodfellas, Pate and co. let you enjoy joyfully, two examples in the spoiler.

    spoiler: corleone Hotel or Joe Pesci FunnyGuy Scene.

    The story about Tommy is simply a successful mafia story.

    graphic

    Hangar13 did a really good job on this remake. It looks really fabulous. At the end of the story, I jumped straight into the free ride and looked at the entire map, it's done well. The individual scenes look nice, as do the character models and everything around them. The only thing that bothered me a little was the eyelashes: D, which is only a minor thing.

    Gameplay

    First of all, I didn't play in classic mode and without aiming aids. The level of difficulty (medium) was appropriate, I would have only wished that cops could be shaken off a little more difficult. Regarding combat gameplay, I have to say that this is my only weakness. The shooting and especially the close combat do not seem as smooth as the rest, here it might have needed a little more time, also to e.g. the cover mechanisms mature further (in particular the cover change is implemented too half-baked).

    It would have been nice to make the open world somewhat interactive in free travel mode, e.g. Activities or the like.

    A great trump card is the variety of different missions within the story. Everything feels different but also completely harmonious, boredom never arises here.

    The collectibles have great pictures / comics, etc. (I have to look for some) and some great hidden cars. Unfortunately I didn't unlock the achievement for 30 carts, quite difficult to find out which ones are still missing.

    Conclusion

    A fantastic remake for me that I hope many others will play. Anyone who is only approximately interested in the topic, knows the predecessor or is up for a good story again should strike. Only in combat would they have had to go a step further to make it absolutely smooth. 9/10 offers you can't refuse.

    Okay it's 2020, not 2010. The game is okay, graphics are good but not "that" good. The plot is great, very interesting, not like Mafia 2 but okay.

    Short and nice fun. But sometimes cclunky... Graphics are great, city is visually very good. Controls a bit outdated.
