PS4Home: "Here’s a list of 8 things you might not know about the newest title in the “Mafia” franchise."
All I know is this should have been about the Irish mob, bootleggers and such... something akin to boardwalk empire.
Replaying through 2 right now and I really feel like that's an underrated game. I would put it up there with the best open world games of last gen because they are actually able to tell a compelling & meaty story with some pretty great voice acting. The driving takes some getting used to but things like the speed limiter make that game more conducive to playing it like a human being rather than a psychopath that is at odds w/ the ideals of the main character, which bolsters the dynamics of the story even more. The soundtrack is also pitch perfect even if it is a little thin. If the new game ups that soundtrack much more (or if licensing is too costly, devs could curate Spotify playlists that we can play during the game), gives us just a little more mission variety and keeps the rest of the heart of the series intact, I think this will be another great installment in the series, albeit possibly another one that gets looked over in favor of lesser titles. One thing is for certain, no other open world game has gotten period pieces as right as Mafia has.
