Oozing with 1930s atmosphere, Mafia: Definitive Edition is a successful rejuvenation of the best story in the series.

A decent, if unremarkable, cover shooter, elevated by artful scene-setting and memorable set-pieces.

A mostly thorough remake of 2002's original, Mafia: Definitive Edition has its moments - but it struggles by the standards of today.

A good looking and competent retread of a second rate original, which improves on everything from the graphics to the driving model, whilst maintaining the game's cinematic essence.

I remember Mafia back in the early days of the PS2 era. I also remember not really understanding it because I was 12 years old and probably shouldn't have been playing a Mafia game. I also remember the game being hard as nails, but that's about it. 18 years later, Mafia is a classic and a surprising choice for a full-on remake. The game takes you through a story of the 1930s

Story: 9,5/10 Gameplay: 7,5/10 Content: 7,5/10 Characters: 8/10 Music: 8/10 Graphics: 8,5/10 Very nice game, a worse of a remake though.
This review contains SPOILERS! Click to expand.
Story... Original had some flaws, but the overall storytelling and immersion made me forgive the shortcomings, with the remake, it is the other way around. Unimportant things got improved, important ones got watered down or completely cut. Story wise great. Detail great.. Just a shame you dont let us look at the detail as free roam mode had no interiors to explore.. No trains
