    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.

I don’t think it’s better than Mafia 2 but it was still good and I highly recommend playing this first if you ever want to play Mafia 2 as it ties in quite well. There were some bugs but nothing game breaking and most were just funny to see. Overall it was a good experience with a lot of likable characters and cool set pieces that took me about a week to 100%, I’d definitely play it again someday. Expand

Так как затем захотелось пройти и вторую, и та тоже была что надо. До третьей как-то руки не дошли, хотя дойдут обязательно ибо в библиотеке она уже имеется. Правда ругают ее кому не лень, но это меня не сильно беспокоит. Watch Dogs Legion тоже все поносили, а игра-то в итоге отличная получилась! Так вот о Мафии первой давайте. Имеем по сути дело с игрой, сделанной с нуля, а не с подтянутой графикой 2002 года. Действительно выглядит новоявленная Мафия великолепно, всё как завещал великий и могучий Рэйтрэйсинг. Сюжет Мафии старой я помню с трудом, обе ее части чем-то схожи и из них в голове сложился у меня порядочный винегрет. Так что в 2021 году история Томми Анджело простого таксиста, ставшего волею судьбы правой рукой Дона Сальери — второго крупнейшего мафиозного босса в вымышленном городе Лост-Хэвен для меня воспринималась как нечто уже новое. Не особо я люблю все эти напыщенные так называемые произведения о бандитских разборках шумных итальянцев, они как-то разнообразием сильно не балуют. Как бы-то ни было сюжеточка и главные действующие персонажи в Mafia Definitive Edition заходят весьма неплохо. Наблюдать за происходящим было мне лично в меру интересно. Знаменитую локацию с гонкой пофиксили и в новом виде ее мы прошли со второй буквально попытки на нормальном уровне сложности. В далеком прошлом эта миссия сожгла в пепел не один пукан. Правда американцы из Hangar 13 решили смастерить новую игру на нервах в миссии погони с броневиком. Из n-ого количества попыток за второй десяток осилить эту чертову башню удалось только один раз практически на полностью всратом здоровье, но когда выяснилось что там еще две стадии раздевания бронемашины, не подкрепленных промежуточными сохранениями, принято было решение тупо пройти на изи и не испытывать на прочность вторую элиточку от майков. В общем и целом миссии в игре относительно разнообразные и в меру интригующие, до вау эффекта конечно далековато, но увлекательно спорить не стану. Из того что не понравилось в игре — это прежде всего стрельба. Не понимаю почему было не сделать аналогичную метку как в The Division, когда ты точно знаешь в какое место будешь стрелять, когда вылезешь из укрытия. В Мафии же ты примерно вроде бы наводишь камеру на потенциальный выстрел, по факту же вылазки получается что тебе всё равно нужно доводить прицел до цели, а за это время вражеская непись не стоит по стойке смирно, а весьма прицельно шпигует нашего Томми свинцом. К этой кривожопой стрельбе со временем привыкаешь конечно, но это не есть хорошо. Также не могу сказать за управление персонажем, что шибко оно отзывчивое, косяки незначительные имеются. Expand

    The graphics have to be considered quite good when a family member (with perfect eyesight) enters the room and asks if I'm watching a film.The graphics have to be considered quite good when a family member (with perfect eyesight) enters the room and asks if I'm watching a film. Overall, the game feels far more focused than Mafia 3. Its not overburdened with stuff just for the sake of stuff. I like how there is an impressive open world, but it doesn't act as such until until you enter the game outside of story mode. Meaning, the developers haven't tried to tangle the linear story with the free space that might otherwise ruin the pacing.

    Despite all of this, the problem of poor storytelling and character development is moved into far greater focus. It just feels like so much necessary story has been lost for the sake orchestrating just another cliched mobster scene, that inevitably ends in an excessive fire-fight. Its difficult to pin-point the character shifts in the protagonist. As though, because we've seen this story so many times before, we can just accept shifts in his character whether they're highlighted or not. The romantic part of the plot seems to just happen. You walk a girl home once and your married, if only it was that easy.

    In terms of gameplay, there is a nice variety locations, the guns feel satisfying and the driving feels predictably awkward (as its intended). However, the intentions of the developers was to ramp up realism when it comes to gameplay, bullets being left in the chamber and lost when reloading and the driving mechanics as stated, but this feels somewhat counterintuitive when the rest of the game feels just like any other, over-the-top shooter. I feel even greater focus on realism could have differentiated the game further into being some far more noteworthy. Also, the AI is very cunning, especially on Classic difficulty, but i felt a bit cheated when i literally saw enemies teleporting; but i'm hoping this is a bug.

    Given the cheaper price-tag, i do think its really good value, because although i didn't think the narrative is very well established, it hits all the notes you'd expect from a game titled Mafia.
