Mafia: Definitive Edition is a curiosity. Newcomers to the game will find here a soft landing via a strong narrative and gameplay that will readily welcome them. Meanwhile, veterans will find enough changes to make another visit to Lost Heaven worth their while, though whether they will be pleased with the modernization is a separate question entirely.
Like Mafia 3, Mafia: Definitive Edition is a game that works as a good movie. It's not a game that works as a good *game*. It's buggy, it's clunky, and is often just frustrating or unsatisfying. Hopefully, Hanger 13 is able to learn more lessons from this game because I'm not sure a fourth Mafia game can survive this sort of treatment.
Mafia: Definitive Edition is a remake of the 2002 release that was brought to the PlayStation 2, original Xbox, and PC, and while it is able to give the original mechanics and storyline of the game a fresh coat of paint, which is often stunning to look at, the latest edition's reliance on the source material can be a hindrance to the experience. Mafia is being released as a budget title of sorts, being sold for less than your average game, but on its own merits as an open-world crime drama, it barely manages to tread water.
