It's 1968 and the rules have changed. After years in Vietnam, Lincoln Clay knows this truth: Family isn't who you're born with, it's who you die for. Now back home, in a reimagined New Orleans, Lincoln is set on rebuilding his life, but old ties keep him from leaving the city. It will take more than a few friends to make it in this new world. Intense gun fights, visceral hand-to-hand combat, white knuckle driving and street smarts will all be needed. But with the right crew, tough decisions and some dirty hands, it's possible to make it to the top of the city's underworld. It's time to create a new family.

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