"All this time, the first Mafia was the best of the trio. It just took a phenomenal effort from Hangar 13 to do it justice with Mafia: Definitive Edition. This feels like the rare necessary remake that elevates and builds upon the original. It's truly an offer you can't refuse."

Completed on Nov 14, 2020. Mafia: Definitive Edition is a well-made game that oozes with atmosphere and character. I'm not a newcomer to the Mafia series, however, I've never played the original Mafia from 2002. Therefore, I could enjoy the story of Tommy Angelo without any bias or prejudice. The story is superb! I could barely put down my controller because it was so captivating. I can't tell you anything about how it compares to the original story, but I do know that this re-written game is a masterpiece. The beautifully crafted city of Lost Heaven is an authentic backdrop for the events that take place in the game. As you drive from Salieri's Bar to the mission marker, you can listen to period-accurate music on the radio, news broadcasts, and even a baseball game. It's these tiny details that make the world in this game feel real and grounded. Not a single thing about this game displeases me and I can only recommend to anyone to play it. You can play it for the amazing story, the beautiful city to explore, the fantastic soundtrack or simply the gorgeous-looking cars.

«That ending!»
Buggy mess.
Lost all my progress after 20+ hours.

If you have the game do NOT play the experimental motorbike mission. It will corrupt your savefile like it has for so many else. 
«Buggy as hell»
Awesome game...one of the best games of all time. Everything is very well done...from story to driving to shooting..just perfect.
