Use the brand new wardrobe to select the right outfit for your days and nights in New Bordeaux. 11 outfits are at your disposal, including the all new Revolutionary, Pro-Am, Full Metal, Business Hours, and Mr. Clay.
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.

I am a big Mafia's franchise fan. I know Lost Heaven by heart, and I have finished adventure's of Vito Scaletta several times, so I was waiting impatiently for Mafia 3. After finishing the game I am a bit disappointed. Story is nice, main character and other lieutenants are written okay. Prologue and final missions are really great, but middle part of the campaign is very repetitive. We are doing the same for couple of hours. Music is excellent, New Bourdeaux has great climate, but there are many bugs during game and graphics don't look so great - with such bad optimalization. Police is poorly mapped - they react better in Mafia 1. But I still recommend this game, especially to fans of previous games. I spend about 30 hours in it and I had nice fun.
The opening hour or so is great but soon the gameplay becomes cut and paste boring. Same thing over and over again, never had to change up my weapons because most of the time I could just use the hide, whistle then stab technique. Had an issue with cars blowing up because they'd spawn halfway into the terrain, hope that's been patched now... If you can deal with mostly mindless gameplay, then this game will be alright for the nice sound track but it couldn't carry me to the ending
So, this game got bad rep. People say it's awful, bad and repetitive. To a degree, they are right. As a Mafia game, it is nowhere near the 1st and it feels like watered down 2nd game, which wasn't amazing to begin with. Story is simple and done to death revenge story, nothing to see here, really. What saves it are "moments" (like bank heist) and good voice-work, which is good. Music is also fine. Graphics are avarage at best and horrendously bad at worse. Repetition is not as bad as some people claim to say (I mean, what can be more repetitive than 1000hrs of Skyrim of Fallout?), it is on tolerable levels. What is worse is the bad AI, they are nearly blind or your team mates like to stop at random or go for a walk. Overall this game could've been good and it has potential, but all the bugs, AI is what kills it and make it not worth a purchase for full price. For 9,99 or cheaper, it is worth consideration.
It's almost there, there's a lot of really good things in the game. The atmosphere, setting, characters, story and of course the soundtrack. But then there's performance issues, repetitive gameplay, weird AI and other things. I feel like if this game had another year in the making, they might of just made a game that could of become a classic one day. But unfortunately they didn't. I enjoyed it, but not something I would say you must play.
if you're a fan of mafia series, this definitly can be fun, at least the story is! tbh i liked the driving part most, and i wonder why they didn't add bikes to this one, i'm sure driving and shooting with old bikes could be really fun. but the gameplay and gunplay becomes kinda repetitive too soon, they could put more work in it, i liked shooting in mafia 2 more.
