The first Mafia game was an enthusiastic Czech-made tribute to Prohibition-era American crime fiction, and one of the early cinematic, open-world action. Back then, the crooks were Italian, the cops were Irish, and the hooch was Canadian. Mafia: Definitive Edition is a compelling, respectful, and consistently beautiful remake of the highly regarded but not-so-gracefully aged 2002 original.
Its quick pace means I finished it in a weekend – and while there are a few mission-stalling issues and rough edges, it’s overall proven to be a fun way to revisit one of my childhood games from the early 2000s. So in this post, I will be reviewing Mafia Definitive Edition

Mafia Definitive Edition Differences

  • Mafia: Definitive Edition gonna cost you at least $39.99 on release date
  • Although it is a built-from-the-ground and is a total remake of the classic 2002 Mafia game, it is not a shot-for-shot remake.
  • Unlike in the original, Tommy Angelo’s wife and Salieri now get many scenes.
  • If you play on any difficulty other than Classic difficulty mod, speed limitations are no longer enforced.
  • Players may play the game on Classic Mode, which means cops will stop you for speeding, first aid kids will heal you less, attackers will be more aggressive, and so on.
  • The streets have been made wider to allow driving across Lost Heaven, which you will do a lot in Mafia: Definitive Edition, and much more comfortable driving.
  • Mafia 3’s shooting mechanics have been included in Mafia: Definitive Edition which is identical
  • Mafia 3’s cover mechanisms have been improved.

The Game recaptures the story of the first instalment of the series with a bit of change here and there remaining true to the original game and a bit more in-depth look into the characters. In one word the story is excellent and 2k did a fine job remodelling the characters with new voice works which gives a new feel to the game but remains true to its original version.

Moreover, all the missions were completely built from the ground adding a variety of elements and cutscenes into it which makes the game very different to its original series. Players are given the option to choose how they want to complete certain missions like shooting everything up like a classic mafioso or do you want to take a little more stealthy approach to your nemesis.

Hanger 13 did a magnificent job creating the world the game looks stunning with new graphics and visuals the buildings and everything was built from the ground up and the city is filled with pedestrian and polices carrying out their mundane daily activities which sure does make the game immersive basically the city is much more lively compared to Mafia 3, on top of that there are many mesmerizing sights and landmarks to see when exploring the city.

Mafia Definitive Edition: Cons

  • Dull AI Movements: Even though the game is made with next-gen gameplay mechanics the movements and the overall AI response is lacking compared to GTA V which is almost a decade old
  • Removed a lot of features from the original games Free Ride extreme mode, Roaming Gangsters in Free ride mode plus public transport. However, these can be fixed with my guides.
  • Mafia Definitive Edition took a very aggressive linear approach to the game and feels too narrative-driven as it feels stifling moreover the free ride feels very bland compared to the original version as buying ammunitions gangsters on the street and public transport were all removed.

The Game had massive stability issues on Steam and the Epic store versions which is no longer present as updates seem to fix them up. So I would suggest getting it for cheap and Mod it to have an awesome experience. In my opinion, this game is the most lucrative remake I have ever seen and it should be an example for the games that will be a remake
