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.

Mafia II: Definitive Edition could have been a welcome distraction during the quieter summer months, but in its current state, it must be avoided at all costs. While its narrative and writing may still hold up 10 years later, the long, long list of technical flaws and glitches overshadows its few accomplishments. And that's all it deserves because this is the worst remaster of the PS4 generation.

Mafia II: Definitive Edition needed more polishing for sure as it is filled with technical issues that could've been avoided, the game in itself is worth playing provided you can ignore all the technical shortcomings.

Mafia II returns with Definitive Edition. A new opportunity to discover the history of Vito Scaletta with visual improvements. A plot full of violence, blood and loyalty. Empire Bay is dominated by the families of the most feared gangsters of the 40s and 50s. Vito will return from the war in search of the American dream, but will he manage to find a place in organized crime?

My new tires should have been looking better, Joe. This graphical remastering is not satisfying and brings a lot of visual glitches together. At the same time a lot of player having performance issues in a 10 years old game. This remaster is not a master's work. Hangar needs to be stopped.

If you liked Mafia II when it was first released, this package won't disappoint you as a revisit but if you didn't like it 10 years ago, this version really doesn't do anything to change your mind.

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.

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.

On the one hand, we have a nostalgic title that, despite not brilliant gameplay, we could still recommend it today. On the other hand, however, it is a version that would have really benefited from some even more significant changes.
