Summary: If you like great stories in videogames then Mafia will give you that in spades. This game has one of the best stories that I've seen in games and considering when it was made that's a pretty big accomplishment because story in videogames wasn't as important 5 years ago. However the biggest problem that I had with this game and I'm sure others will have is that the game doesn't look great.
Summary: Honestly the reason I even got this game is that I once had it for the xbox and I loved it. Though im finding out there is alot more to the PC version. Some stuff is more detailed while other stuff tends to be a pain. Honestly it was really good step up from the xbox version.
Summary: There is nothing bad about this game. Only sometimes it feels random but outside that, it really get you into the action. I prefer this game than GTA, way more *realistic* The cops actualy can arrest you for speeding, burning a red light or simply missing a stop. I like this fact and your not messing with cops taht much you mostly fight against other organisation. Wich is how mafia is supposed to be.
Summary: Mafia takes you through the life of one man as he goes from a taxi driver to one of the don's top men. Mafia game play allows you to do many different things. From racing on a track, to drivebys, and foot missions mafia includes many different aspects to the game play. The game music is adequate and there is a few good tracks included as main themes but much of the music does get repetitive. This game requires a good speed computer.
Summary: It's good that it's a lot like GTA 3. It also distinguishes itself from GTA 3 by its' slightly awkward controls. However, the driving dynamics are extreme. Powerful cars that feel powerful. Tiny cars that feel tiny. Outstanding design on the autos' as well. Plotline cascades throughout the game and offers up enough cutscenes and storyline updates to keep most happy. Reasonable graphics. BAD POINT : If you have a hard drive 30 gig or under, don't get this.
Conclusion: This is an awesome game. The story to this is fantastic and the gameplay is solid as well. The graphics could have been better but it was decent enough. It had some gitches in it but not a lot so it's still a great game that shouldn't be missed.
