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.

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

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.

Mafia 3 attempts to do great things with its writing, but the gameplay can't keep up

Mafia III is a smartly written and enthralling open-world action game bogged down by technical issues and a repetitive structure.
