Critic Reviews for Mafia II: Definitive Edition
A welcome tonic to overly large open worlds, Mafia 2's story and missions remain worth experiencing if you haven't already, but its age and intrinsic flaws are still obvious.
There's so much about Mafia II that feels like a relic of a bygone era.
Mafia 2 is still a game that’s worth playing, but if you own the original for PC, you’re better off just modding it. If you don’t own it, the Definitive Edition is only $20, and you get Mafia 2 Classic with it, so you don’t have anything to lose.
Mafia 2: Definitive Edition is Mafia 2 in its purest form, for better or worse, which means that we continue to have an incredible city like Empire Bay... certainly wasted. Thanks to the graphic tweaks, it still holds the type 10 years later, although some improvements in the control in the shootings would not have been left over either.

A remastered old, single mission driven open world, with hi-res lights and textures on a basic fighting mechanic, helped by a well written mob story.

Mafia II: Definitive Edition may have definitive in its name, but the numerous glitches that plague it really hold back what is still a good game at its core from truly earning that title.
Hangar 13 releases Mafia 2: Definitive Edition, collecting all the game's DLC and improving the graphics, but some aspects haven't aged well.
What should have been a great return for the ten year old classic ends up being one of the worst remaster I've ever played, with almost no graphical updates and staggering framerate issues. A remaster should fix the issues of the original not make them worse.
