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…

PCGamer - "New Bordeaux is a gorgeous-looking backdrop."
GamesRadar - "Mafia 3’s core action meld and merge with dynamically satisfying ease, it's the connectedness of the game's wider, meta systems that really fleshes out the sense of New Bordeaux as real place."
Set in New Bordeaux during 1968, Mafia 3 attempts to echo the same vibe as New Orleans in the late 60’s. This time you’re playing as Lincoln Clay, a veteran of the Vietnam war as he vows revenge on the Italian Mob. This classic tale of revenge in the Gangster genre is not something that often comes up in games, and Mafia 3 is right on track to hit all of the right marks. Sporting an amazing licensed soundtrack, the sheer amount of verisimilitude that Mafia 3 can offer is brilliant. Who doesn’t want a bit of Credence Clearwater Revival playing as you shoot up the Italian Mob?
Additionally, gameplay is pretty open-ended, meaning you are free to breathe and take in all of New Bordeaux’s sights at your leisure. Take over locations, interrogate your enemies and much more in this dark Gangster tale set during the Swingin’ 60s.

Mafia 3 was one of those "all time hyped" games that everyone was waiting for. After I had given it a shot, it felt really great. Great models, beautiful textures and awesome stuff that really make you feel that you're living in the days the game is set in. What is ruining the game are some pretty annoying bugs and things that I feel could've been much better. Starting from the game being locked on all platforms on 30fps (which I still don't get why), over to glitchy places that you can fall through make the old days experience less believable and much less fun. The soundtracks, though, are defining the decade the game is set in. Beautiful songs with really nice weapon / car sounds give me the actual lovely feeling. But, again, the game is not complete, it's full of glitches and bugs and the missions could've been improved and the 30fps lock don't allow me to give it a score bigger than 76.
Mafia III is the long awaited sequel to the grand storytelling franchise of Mafia. Though it is made by Hangar 13 instead of 2K Czech, it is still being published by 2K Games. The series has always pride itself in deep story telling and interesting characters, or at least they try to. Mafia II was not a flawless game, it was far from it. But it showed potential and a great story and characters that you cared about. Of course when Mafia III was announced, people are excited. They want to see if 2K Games could take the franchise's potential and elevate it to new heights. What was shown for months was a great backdrop of New Bordeaux, a 1968 reimagined of New Orlean. Lincoln Clay, a Vietnam War vet returned to his home town. Instead of being treated like a hero, he is face with discrimination and unfair treatment because of the color of his skin. A few run-ins with old friends put him on the wrong side of the law. But the law isn't exactly always righteous. The setting was right, the mood was set, and the characters are definitely compelling. Sadly, instead of improving upon the great promise of Mafia II, this game seem to have fallen short. As of right now, during its release window, the game resemble a poorly optimized Grand Theft Auto IV clone. Yes, not even Grand Theft Auto V. The graphic is severely outdated, resemble more like a game that was released in 2008. Even with all the settings turn up to max, you'll still get ugly texture and a mud like smear all over the screen that makes everything look blurry. The worst offender is it 30fps hard lock. Its 2016, a game of this caliber should not be released with a 30fps lock. PC gamers pride themselves in spending money on their system to be able to run games at extraordinary details and frame rates. Always pushing the limit. With the technical state of this game, it is quite obvious that Hangar 13 developed this game with consoles in mind, and then poorly port it to PC, when it should be the other way around. A multi-platforms game made with PC in mind and scaled down to consoles would ensure the best possible experience for all parties. The game also possesses many technical glitches and bugs. I've experienced crashes, bugs like falling through the maps and NPC pop-ups. Even without all these technical issues. The game can get very tedious after 5 hours, you do the same thing over and over again with side quests to advance the story, you'll see the same melee take downs within the first hour, and the AI are incredibly easy to fool and defeat. Several positive things are the soundtrack of this game, which definitely set the mood, the setting is incredibly rich and well thought out, Lincoln Clay is a very relatable protagonist and the gun play is decent. Overall, I would not recommend paying full price for this game, the way it is right now. The developer has promised that a patch containing numerous bug fixes and unlocking frame rates will drop very soon within the weekend. Even then, this game feels like it was done better before. Grand Theft Auto V have done it better. I would check out this game if you are a hardcore fan of Mafia II, however I hope if Mafia IV was a thing, It would be much better than this. Beneath all the technical glitches and problems. Mafia III is just kind of...there. It wasted a good premise and setting.
