A Look Back at Mafia - CFD!

CFD!'s Nate Andrews shares his thoughts on the first Mafia:

"Though at a cursory glance Mafia would appear to be a post-GTA III wannabe, its style was quite contrary to the open world fervor everyone seemed to be caught up in.

I wonder if the PS2/Xbox ports were decent? They can certainly be picked up super-cheap now.

From what I've heard, they were not. I'd suggest going the Steam route.

But I hate playing action titles on keyboard/mouse! :/

dude... get the pc version, the console versions were an abomination. mouse+keyboard own controllers+ it had cutting edge grphics (for the time) ps2 /xbox version were fugly as hell.

with that said , mafia 1 on pc was one of my all time favorite games, it was so much better than mafia 2.

Man In Black2643d ago

They were shit. That's all you need to know.

Giantsquirrel2643d ago

Does it support 360 controllers? Because I'd be down like...Donkey Clown?

ShadowPraxis2643d ago

You just dodged paying Nintendo $2. Good job.

I'm all about this. I never got into GTA, so I would like to check out a game influenced by it.

Good to know... Steam seems like the way to go for most of these games.
