Includes the full game and Season Pass
It’s 1968 and after years of combat in Vietnam, Lincoln Clay knows this truth: family isn’t who you’re born with, it’s who you die for. Now back home in New Bordeaux, Lincoln is set on escaping a criminal past. But when his surrogate family, the black mob, is betrayed and wiped out by the Italian Mafia, Lincoln builds a new family on the ashes of the old and blazes a path of military-grade revenge through those responsible. Intense gun fights, visceral hand-to-hand combat, white knuckle driving and street smarts will all be needed. But with the right crew, tough decisions and some dirty hands, it’s possible to make it to the top of the city's underworld.
A vast, diverse and seedy open world ruled by the mob and corrupt officials and richly detailed with the sights, sounds and emotionally-charged social atmosphere of the era.
Be Lincoln Clay, an orphan and Vietnam veteran hell bent on revenge against the Italian Mafia for the brutal slaughter of the black mob, the closest thing to family he’s ever had.
Choose your own personal play-style, from brute force and blazing guns to stalk-and-kill tactics as you use Lincoln’s military training and gathered intel to tear down the Italian Mafia.
Build a new criminal empire in your own unique way by deciding which of your lieutenants you reward, and which you betray…

Firstly let me tell you that the first few hours of the game are quite amazing. The story is well paced and told. Cut-scenes look amazing, voice acting is top notch. Soundtrack is just incredibly good. It was a long time since I didn't want to exit an in-game car just to listen to music. Unfortunately once the open world is revealed, the big flaws can be seen. The mission design becomes very uninspiring. Go to X location kill/interrogate/follow target Z, Y amount of times, take over a racket and then do it all over again in the next district. In between these grinds there are a story line missions, which are interesting and just makes you want to play more. Unfortunately after doing the grindy side activities/missions so many times the game becomes a chore. After playing the game for 8 Hours I don't think I will be bothered enough to finish it. Another issue with the game is that there is nothing to do besides taking over rackets. Collecting Playboy and other magazines is interesting at first but later on the interest disappears. I also read that once you complete the game there is nothing to do at all in the game's "open world". Then there is the AI. I could spend another hour just trying to explain how "smart" the AI is. But it is better to do some YouTube searches for Mafia 3 AI and see how "smart" it is. Finally the technical issues that this game is plagued with. Firstly the skybox is just messed up. Clouds do not look like clouds at all, they get this weird compressed video like artifacts every time an object moves through it. Textures are 512x512 and there are no options to change this resolution. This makes the game look dated already. The lighting in the game can look stunning at times, but other times it looks just wrong and buggy. During the day or just after rain the sun shines way too much covering half of the screen. Sometimes, inside interiors, light messes up so badly that all you can see is just a white screen. The reflections are good sometimes, but look quite weird, like bugged. Sometimes they refresh in real time, but other times they don't or just completely restart (the reflection disappears making the car look matte and then reappear). Even mirrors in this game do not work. Then there are other glitches like falling through the map, AI cars going through buildings or other cars. Car doors are not solid objects, so unlike in GTA 5 the doors will not get broken or fall off when hitting other solid object, the doors in this game will just go through solid objects. Another glitch that I encountered quite a lot is the execution animation would play out without touching the enemy, and only after a few seconds the executed enemy will move like some force was executing it. NPC's will also appear out of thin air when trying to take rackets. One time I just entered a building that might have had 3-5 NPCs and after I killed one enemy, other NPCs started spawning in. This really took away from immersion in this game. I could name more bugs that I encountered, but in short this game feels unfinished. Almost like an early access game for a full AAA price. And now there is the performance of this game. It is atrocious. The game was released with a 30 FPS Cap, which was quickly removed. But when the cap was removed one thing was revealed. This game was not optimized at all. The game graphically looks disappointing and nowhere near the quality of GTA 5, but runs so much worse. I can run GTA 5, The Witcher 3, Doom (2016) on High settings with 60fps on 1080p resolution with no problems. But this game just refuses to perform properly. I have to set most settings to low, which to be honest do not look that much different from high settings (just lower resolution of volumetric lighting, shadows, reflections) and still I cannot get stable 60fps. If the game looked jaw-dropping good or even near the quality of GTA 5, Witcher 3 or even like the cinematic cut-scenes then I could understand why it doesn't perform well. But now it just looks quite bad especially for a triple-A game in 2016, which just makes the performance of this game even more questionable. If not for technical and PC port issues I would give this game 76/100 (good, a bit average but still fun). It does have a great story, cut-scenes, soundtrack, fun shooting and driving, but very repetitive and uninspiring mission design. But since the technical issues are so severe and make the game look like an unfinished early access title for full AAA price I cannot give this game anything higher than a 50/100 (not really worth a buy). At the current price I really cannot recommend buying this game. Wait for a deep sale or until developers actually fix most of the technical issues.
Mafia III is now set as an example a kind of series as gamers now know that after Mafia III there will be another Mafia story, which may never end because too many mafias and when developers come to 2016 from old age till then more stories will create in the world. However, about this game, this is one piece of art though expensive but worth. The story line is awesome and of course Gamers want to live a life of Mafia Don, which is now possible with this Series. The graphics are excellent, Actions, Arms and Ammunition according to that age is fine. All in all, this the most wanted and hot game ever require by Gamers.
