Summary: Mafia is a game based during the 1930's era where gangsters & mobsters rule the city. It is a 3rd person perspective game where you play Tommy Angelo. A lowly cabbie who rises through the ranks of the gangster family: Salieri. This game may be compared by others with the likes of GTA 3. But for my opinion, it is quite similar but with the experience of the 1930's built into it. It is a good game for those who would like to immerse themselves into that era.
Summary: mafia is hard to review because i have such mixed and strong feelings about it. in the end i do recommend it and i do understand some of the intense passion it has elicited among some of its fans, but there were some serious limitations and problems for me with the game as well.

Summary: The 1930's. The era of prohibition, bootlegged liquor, and the mob. Mafia from Illusion Softworks brings us back to that by gone era with some good graphics and decent albeit uneven gameplay. Mafia, tells the story of Tommy Angelo. A mobster who really just wants to do "the right thing". As a story, Mafia works. The cutscenes are surprisingly photorealistic and are well acted and presented.
Summary: As a diehard GTA3/Vice City fan, this game is not anywhere close to being as good as GTA3. Actually, it's not even as good as the severely-flawed-but-good The Getaway. Since I don't have time and I want to educate people who are interested in it but want to know the REAL DEAL, here's the breakdown: PROS: * Animation * Voice acting * Storyline * Some of the shootouts are REALLY good CONS: * The cars are just awful (FYI-I am not a car fanatic) -- they don't handle well and...
Summary: This game is beatiful in its graphics. The people look reall, the cars are detailed to the bone, and the city is well....just beatiful. The stroy line is great. From the beginning the player believes this game is gonna rock. However, the game gets boring after a while. Too much driving... no really good shooting sequences, and a really bad music. However, the end is great. This game should be played once and never played again.
Summary: Die Tschechen haben schon mit dem ersten Teil ein fulminantes Open World Spiel auf die Beine gestellt, so dass der Nachfolger fast nur gut hätte sein können - an und für sich spielt er sich auch ganz nett und die wenigen Spielstunden sind auch sehr unterhaltsam, aber davon gibt es schlicht zu wenige (~10h). Die Erweiterung wirkt leider auch nur wie ein liebloser Nachsatz. Schade.
Summary: Das Hauptspiel ist soweit ganz gut. Die Story um Vito ist schön und Packend. Erinnert mich sehr an die GTA Serie. Hat sehr viele Parallelen zu GTA. Die Kartengroße ist kleiner als Bei GTA, dies fällt allerdings nicht auf weil die Autos nicht sonderlich schnell fahren - was zu der zeit sicher üblich wahr, allerdings den Spielspaß Trübt, weil man doch sehrviel Kreuz und Quer durch die Stadt gurken muss. Die DLC's sind Größtenteils Schrott!
