Mafia was a really good game back when it got released. While the controls felt little stiff, the graphics and atmosphere were incredible, especially the world developers built in this game, which was more serious and real than in GTA. It was so real, you could get a ticket for speeding or passing on red light. Also what helped built atmosphere was the music, and here is where this version differs. Most of the licensed soundtrack got cut, so when you won't hear the tunes on the street like in the original. Still, thankfully, you can restore it with guides. Back in the day gameplay was fine, just like GTA3, but maybe little more stiff with driving being slightly better than in GTA (which is not saying much, because GTA is legendary for its horrible driving). While writing and voice acting is excellent, 15 years later the gameplay doesn't hold up much, especially in comparison to other games or even entries in this series. It just lacks all of the Quality of Life things we got used today. Also, it is not remaster or anything, so don't expect anything being better or higher resolution or something. The only change it got was removed soundtrack. Still, it is a better game than Mafia 3, and if you want to relive your nostalgia, go for it, because it is cheap as chips and totally worth it. However, if you're not into old games, you better pass, because it will annoy you more than give you enjoyment. As for me, after 15 years, I see it didn't age well with graphics, controls and gameplay, but it is still a story and game that is worth playing. 8/10
