Summary: this is a great game! I've wanted to play it since it came out and now i finally bought it! The storyline is very creative, missions are challenging yet very possible to beat. There are great features that similar games like gta and driver don't have such as the ability to throw away weapons and change the car from automatic to manual. Sweet game oldschool style!
One of the best 3rd person shooters ever! Great game!

Summary: This game is incredibly fun. The story is engaging and interesting, the missions are varied, and driving is a blast. This game includes "Free ride" mode which allows you to drive around town and do whatever you want. Incredibly fun!
Summary: This is one of the greatest if not the best game I have ever played! MAFIA, has it all, from an amazing story that looks like it could have been a movie, to intense action, and thrilling missions. This is a Must have for any PC gamer. the graphics for the time (2002) were unbeatable (and still looks better than a lot of games out today). I would absolutely recommend this game to any gamer, and let me say this, If you played this game on the Playstation 2 or the X-box.
MAFIA - Great game, awesome story, smooth gameplay.

Summary: I can't say enough about this game. I wear fedoras, smoke cigars, like nice cars and even nicer dames. I like shootin' my guns and creating civil unrest. My name's Tommy Angelo. X-taxi driver, MAFIA Enforcer! Yeah! If you like the Gangster genre, this game shines. It really puts you in the mood to do something criminal.....in a fun way. Read the reviews on-line, praise, praise and more praise. Christ, I hear the "Parking Lot" calling me!
Excerpt: "...delighted to see 2002 title Mafia on sale on Steam. To be honest, I didn't have my expectations very high, as I find it hard to enjoy some older games, well-respected or not. This made it all the better when I played it, and was treated to one of the best and most compelling stories I have ever experienced in a game. The gameplay may be rather dated now, but it didn't let down the experience at all for me. Mafia's protagonist is Tommy Angelo, a former ...
Pros: Has a fantastic story that hooks you in; entertaining game modes; top - notch acting and music .
Cons: Dated graphics; gameplay is average at best .
Excerpt: "...was launched in early 2000, Mafia the land of the lost heaven is a game way ahead of its time. You really feel for the character of Tommy who is pushed by circumstances into crime and then faces the consequences for the wrong choices which he made. The developers have done a stellar job to recreate the settings of the early 1930's and every mission has its own challenges. I personally liked the mission of Hotel Corleone where you need to bump of ...
Pros: A great powerful story, simple enough for everyone to play
Cons: Game won't impress hardcore gamers because technologies and shooting techniques have improved
Excerpt: "My favourite part of this game, is when you have to steal some documents from the house of a politician that's well guarded and you have to be quiet even if the guards are patrolling with shotguns. In my opinion the story is perfect: a taxi driver helps some gangsters and becomes a gangster. The action takes place, back in the 1930 in Lost Heaven, a city quite similar to New York. The cars have a large number, from Ford model A, to hot rods and old ...
Pros: 1 you always have to choose from the hard or the easy way .
Cons: 1 unrealistic way of crossing over the pedestrians .
