Critic Reviews for Mafia 3

Starts promisingly, but soon slips into a tiresome, repetitive grind, never doing its unique period setting justice.

As clever and original as it is tedious and broken, Mafia 3 has the makings of a classic, but doesn't go the distance.

Mafia 3's strong characters and confident storytelling kept me engaged, even if the gameplay rarely delivered anything but bog-standard and repetitive open-world action. That's a bummer, because Lincoln is an incredible protagonist and New Bordeaux is a fantastic setting thematically, and it would've been great to see them put to better use.

A game of inspired highs diluted with pedestrian lows. Worthy, but achieves less than its true potential.

A horrible waste of a strong narrative, whose politically-charged storytelling is squandered on a dull and horrendously repetitive GTA clone.

It roars out of the gate and looks like it could be tackling difficult subject matter in a meaningful way, but quickly devolves into a mindless revenge story

Though Mafia III's storytelling is exceptional in every way, it's not quite strong enough to compensate for dated gameplay, repetitive missions, and technical issues.
