Mafia II Definitive Edition is a remake of the original game released in 2010 that was followed by Mafia III, I have only ever played Mafia III and though its a stand-alone game there are lots of nods back to the old game in it so I’ve always been interested to see the story of Mafia II and Mafia I (to be re-released later this year).
Like Mafia III the cultural references are set during 1940-1950s and they show the sorts of language you cannot get away with today, personally I think this is a great reflection on who we are now and how far we have come, but if you’ve not played a Mafia game before you may be shocked by just how true to times the content can be.
So far I’m enjoying the storyline a few things in the game could be a bit more polished like the driving, the other cars AI and sometimes the camera angles are terrible but I probably shouldn’t be so picky of a remastered game like this, the graphics are great compared to bits of the original ive seen. Stream doesn’t really do it justice I had to lower some setting to allow me to record and play. All in all a so far a great game!
