    What is up with the negativity, man? The game is pretty cool and unique if you ask me. Not every game you get to experience that 60's atmosphere while driving muscle cars, and listening to CCR or The Rolling Stones.
    None here cares if it is unoptimized or whatever you call it (and thankfully you have PCGW to help you with those issues). Also the game has is from 2016, relax.

    Wonder if there's any truths to the remaster rumors for this series, would be a neat way to drive up initial interest. :)

    I liked the story in Mafia 3 but the padding around it for capturing each and every district whether quickly or by bugging every single telephone box for a little bit more money really hindered things, DLC were really fun too exploring some alternate situations and more character development.

    Think the mirror reflections are bugged or at least heavily delayed even on PC although the updates helped with performance and stability was a bit hit & miss.


    EDIT: Ran through most of the game using this outfit as well.

    Ruining the mood the game was going for aside and instead turning it into something resembling Interstate 76's character design the shooting was also really good although the AI....suck.

    Crouch, whistle, takedown.

    Shooting also works while having really nice reaction from enemies even if they're dumb but it gets ridiculous how well that particular method can clear entire areas without any problems what so ever.


    Can also use a telephone kiosk, they can hold a infinite number of bodies for storage and that gets just as dumb as it sounds but it also works incredibly well for hiding bodies.

    I really liked Mafia and Mafia 2, but Mafia 3 is very repetitive.

    Free is free, going to check it out. Looking through the reviews, now I know why Mafia 3 is cheaper than Mafia 2.

    Mafia 1 was a game with "soul" - everything was fantastic in that game: atmosphere, gameplay, graphics, car mechanics. Mafia 2 was a warning sign about the direction where the series is going and Mafia 3 was where everything went from bad to severely f***ed up...Every year during holidays I replay Mafia 1 including the free ride extreme challenges...I would like a remaster of this please. Mafia 3 except for the introduction up until the bar scene is boring, repetitive and for some parts has uglier graphics than mafia 2...- it has some of the best sound effects though and the music is just great...

    Now you are just being cute! :p Mafia III is exactly what you say; unoptimized garbage, but still so artistically unique. :)

    Yeah the game ran pretty badly on my old RX 480, but i bought the game on my Xbox One X, and i gotta say it was pretty good. It does feel repetitive sometimes, but overall the story, the graphics (4k on XboxOneX), the atmosphere and the general feel of the game is spot on. Can't wait for the sequel. I also recommend getting the Deluxe version because of the extra story missions, and some other goodies.
