Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Bringing together car chases, bank heists, a bit of gang warfare and a lovingly created 1930s world, Mafiais easily one of the most ambitious PC games of the year. Fortunately, it's also one of the best.

Driven by a narrative that tells the story in flashback of Tommy Angelo, a member of the mob who wants out, the game positively oozes detail. From cars of the time through to a lively, living city to explore, you can't help but be drawn into the world that Mafia creates.

The key gaming elements are also suitably polished. The missions generally mix in some driving work along with tense action elements, and they're predominantly interesting, diverse and fun to play. Plus they don't have any qualms about pulling the rug from right underneath you.

There's a hybrid of game styles at work here, with the player needing to master both the driving and on-foot segments of the game. A useful tutorial at the start certainly helps there, and soon you're left to relish the surprisingly broad selection of vehicles and an arsenal that's as likely to have you handling a baseball bat as it is a tommy gun.

The game is glued together though by the exceptional mood and atmosphere that it generates. Frankly, it's a multimedia feast, and hugely engrossing for it. Perhaps at times it's a little over ambitious, and there are moments when the pace slows a little too much, but these are few and far between.

Ultimately, Mafia sets itself very high targets and pretty much meets them all. It's arguably one of the best three single-player games of the year, and it's a very demanding gamer who won't get their money's worth from it. --Simon Brew

Product Description

Mafia brings the 1930s underworld to life in this third-person 3-D action game. Rise from the lowly but well-dressed Foot soldier to the envied and feared Made Man in an era of big bands, zoot suits and Model Ts. Take on the role of a hit man, enforcer, getaway driver and more in your struggle for respect, money and power with the Salieri Family.

There are 20 action-packed missions each of which have their own sub-quests. Luxury and riches are yours for the taking, if you do as Don Salieri has requested. From mob hits, car chases, shoot-outs and more, complete the unsavoury tasks the Family needs done and you will be handsomely rewarded. As well as the missions, there are over 12 square miles of the 1930s American city, with simulated traffic, landmarks and surrounding landscapes to explore, it's a sprawling city where opportunity is around every corner.

The environments pull you into the 1930s with their attention to detail and style. From seedy bars and hotel rooms to train stations and airports--every location is rendered in fantastic detail by the 3-D "LS3D" engine, such as the Lost Heaven International Airport and Chinatown. You get to try out some classic firepower, such as the Tommy Gun, Colt 1911, S&W model 27 Magnum, or pump-action shotgun. In addition, drive over 60 different vehicles (including the Model T, Roadsters and delivery trucks) with some of the most realistic car physics ever made in a game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pc Game of the Year! 9 Feb 2003
By A Customer
A lot of people say that there is no point in buying this game because it is almost identical to GTA 3 and Vice City. In my opinion they are wrong. Mafia is an amazing trip back to the Mafia family in the 1930s. I love this game because when I played it I got completely absorbed in it. There are 20 missions in the game but don't think that you'll complete it in a couple of days. The levels are usually long and in most cases difficult. In the game you will meet a lot of dodgy characters wanting you dead. In the levels you have to stay alert because at any time a guy carrying a pump action shotgun could jump round the corner and blast your brains out. The graphics are also brilliant - I love the realism of when you or someone is smoking - the smoke rises up beautifully. Overall I think this game is a must have for any gamer and with the price that amazon is asking what are you waiting for?

I bought this on the basis that it sat at about no. 5 on PC Zones FPS chart, I knew nothing about it and after playing the first hour I thought I had made a big mistake. My mistake was thinking that, because little did I know I was being warmed up for the most immersive game I have ever played! You play Tommy, a cab driver and you drive around a city in 1930's America picking up and dropping off fares and earning not much money - until that is you fall into the Italian mafia, working for Don Saleri. You start by dropping off the odd package here and there then you find yourself escorting the the bar managers daughter home late one night and you find yourself kicking in a bunch of hooligans - naturally you get with Sarah, marry her and have a few kids. Your reputation for being a bit of a psycho holds you in good stead and soon you are knocking off Don's enemies and the odd innocent bystander. The story unfolds, you nick more and more cars, drive them like a man posessed and shoot anybody who dares to even look at you in the street. The graphics are amazing, the ambience is thrilling and I have run out of words to describe how utterly superb this game is. Play it and play it again.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Game You Can't Refuse!!! 2 Mar 2003
From the makers of what i thought was a brilliant game in it's own rights, Hidden & Dangerous, comes Mafia, a third person shooter set in a 1930's American city. The game's producers boast about huge landscapes, unique and varied missions, loads of cars and weapons, and mostly, a heavily involving storyline. After reading many reviews, i purchased it, and all i can say is WOW!
This game is absolutely superb! By far the favourite of my collection (apart from the untouchable Allied Assault of course!) it plays like a gem and is so addictive, there should be prescribed an antibiotic for playing it!
First of all, the gameplay is absolutely brilliant. No problems shooting or driving, and getting around the city is simple. A GTA clone, i hear you say. Not a chance! There are many similarities sure, but while GTA is pure cartoon anarchy, Mafia is a deep and compelling experience, with more depth in the character's appearences. Oh, and the actual plot of the story is top class. I feel it would make a superb movie, which funnily enough, is the style that Mafia is presented in.
After you complete it (and it'll take you some time, some of the missions are absolutely rock!), replayability value is boosted not only by the normal Free Ride (where you drive about freely, just messing around), but by Free Ride Extreme, where you complete mini tasks for bonus cars and where some parts of the city have been changed.
The AI is great. Traffic is intelligent, and pedestrians don't run away when you drive past (Midtown Madness anybody?). But by far, the police are the sharpest little pests around. They'll have you for showing a weapon in public, running a red light, going over 40 mph inside the city and generally being a lout, but as long as you behave yourself, you should be OK.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply perfect!!!!!!!! 11 Jan 2003
Games are not something I would normally bother reviewing but I feel compelled to spread the word about just how good this game is. Great graphics, sound and a fantastic music score help make this game truly exceptional but its defining genius is the level of reality the game employs. At the beginning of a mission you don't just check your inventory to see what weapons you have at your disposal instead you pay a visit to the don's weapons man and discuss with him suitable weaponry and it is the countless neat little touches like this that make this game superb. Stories in most games are usually superfluous but trust me I couldn't wait to get through each mission to find out what would happen next. The game and story are tremendously exciting and I would even go as to far to say that the story was moving in parts, this game should not be missed if games won oscars this would be the equivalent of Titanic, Ben Hur and Gone With The Wind all rolled into one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tommy Gun-tastic!! 7 May 2003
When I first saw the screenshots for this game I thought the graphics were amazing, and when I finally got it home and onto my PC I wasn't disappointed. As mentioned by a few other reviewers there are some niggly errors but most games have these and the atmosphere in the game is so great that you don't really notice these during gameplay.
The cars do start out very slow so if you're used to GTA III then you could become disheartened, but fear not, because as you progress the cars get much better and screaming through the streets having a gunfight with the police is a definite must.
Once the missions are over (which there are a lot of since it follows Tommy throughout his Mafia career) the fun doesn't end there since this opens up Freeride Extreme where you can drive round the city at your leisure and collect new 'special' cars by doing missions after meeting up with 1 of the 20 blokes dotted around in certain areas. There are also a number of ramps in this mode and once in a special car i.e. hotrod you can pull off some spectacular moves.
Obviously this is a 1930's GTA III but I own GTA III, GTA Vice City and Mafia and I think Mafia is the one which held my attention the longest. A brilliant game, anyone who says otherwise isn't giving it a chance or can't play it to completion. Go buy it!!
