Jump Xbox: Mafia Definitive Edition isn't just one of the best remakes to grace our screens; it's one of the best open-world crime games. Less freedom and more guidance results in an action-packed experience that doesn't suffer from the typical flaws of open-world games. The story is gripping and the performances by the cast are to be applauded. Gameplay is by the numbers with some flaws in its combat, though the lovingly recreated period setting glosses over the few missteps.
"The word “cinematic” is often thrown around with reckless abandon when it comes to modern games. Uncharted and The Last of Us 2 spring to mind as they’re often referred to as “cinematic masterpieces” of gaming. I don’t think they are. Mafia Definitive Edition, though? Yes, in every sense."
Stopped reading there. Pure fanboy drivel.
