I don't actually hate this idea. As long as the customisations lend themselves to the setting. We don't need more afros and tattoos.

something like red dead redemption with arthur/johns hair. have a few select styles that fit their character. i remember with previous mafia dlcs they had outfits that added a mustache. itd be better to let us just go to a barber

I know - but considering that was also true in the '60s, you could quite easily tell the same kind of story about a mob-run casino in either decade

Sure, but the 60's were kind of a golden age for the Mafia. Especially in Vegas. You could still set the game in that decade. But if you set it in the 70's, you can tie it into the end of the golden age of Las Vegas Mafia and the rising influence of corporate run casinos in corporate America.

Mafia 3 was a different type of Mafia game. It lacked some of the roleplaying elements, interactivity with the environment and the slower pace of the first two games. The story was certainly good, but it was a game in which you didn't play as someone in the Mafia, but rather an "outsider looking in" perspective. It was definitely more of a grinding game than one with unique missions, which is probably a lack of development time or just laziness on the developer's half.  


I'm really excited to play Mafia 1 Remastered. This is going to be a very unique experience, it's not often you see 20-year-old game completely rebuilt like this. Just imagine if R* did it with GTA III or Vice CIty... that's how abnormal it is.

 

I've only played through the original version about halfway, since the controls for the racing mission were almost gamebreaking. I'd like to see them fix some of the original's playability issues, while still keeping the originality of the game. I'm really interested in how they're going to "expand" the gameplay and the story. Maybe additional side missions? A more open world environment between missions?

No wonder, the developers used steering wheels while making that mission and they didn't test it on a keyboard. I hope they keep the difficulty and the 30s cars' control because that is what makes the driving unique. They can implement a difficulty selection to the racing like they did with the patches to the game.

Even with my Xbox 360 controller plugged in, it was nearly impossible. The AI was also very much ahead of its time.

I think it was because they were kamikazes and the cars were prone to slipping and you easily had mass accidents at the first turn. But yeah the AI was pretty advanced in the game.

i think they focus on different decades like 1 was the 1930s, 2 was the 40s and 50s, 3 was the 60s so i think they would make 4 the 70s. its a different style from the 60s like mafia 3, different style cars and suits, different drugs etc. and then mafia 5 would probly be 80s and 90s

I'm looking forward to this. I never got to play the First Mafia game. I have it on steam, but when I tried to play it on my last gaming rig the controls went haywire no matter what I tried to do and the player spun around in circles lol.

I only ever played Mafia 2, which was back in 2011 on the 360 during the whole PSN outage issue. There was no online, so I hopped on my 360 which my uncle gifted to me and started up Mafia 2. Got hooked on it and finished the story. It was amazing.

 

Great story, good graphics, beautiful and engaging world, etc. I would love to play it again, but with updated graphics. I'd also like to experience the first and the third game. Can't wait.

The remastered Mafia I sure looks exciting. However, I wouldn't appreciate it if they mess with gameplay aspects that much - especially the trademark difficulty. Mafia I sometimes feels like making you smash your keyboard, but there is something charming about all that challenge. Polishing the vehicle controls would be nice though, because driving cars in that game was mostly a pain in the ass.

I'm not claiming what the Mafia series is or isn't supposed to be. You are. I only brought up the GTA comparison because your saying in Mafia III you are a rambo-guy, like somehow trying to discredit the game based on that.. Yeah, well so was Niko Bellic. What's your point? It still doesn't negate that Mafia III is a mafia game. That's the original point. Because it doesn't fit in to some mould you have of what Mafia is and isn't supposed to be. Mafia is whatever the developers want it to be. You might prefer a vision for Mafia but it doesn't mean your right, it's just your personal preference. 

 

I still stand my ground and say Mafia III is a mafia game.  It's a game about taking down the Mafia as featured in the story. I just posted a video before of 31 minutes of cutscenes dedicated to Sal Marcano who is a mafioso crime bross. He is the main antagonist. Your claim Mafia III isn't a Mafia game. The burden of proof is on you. You are making that claim.  It might be Mafia game with a twist, a new take on the genre. As I said before, I prefer prohibition-era, I prefer playing as a mafioso but at least I'm can admit that Mafia III is a game about the mafia and not let my judgement cloud me because I disliked a game so much. 

 

A risk was taken  to a fresh take on the genre. Sometimes it hits, some times it misses. David Chase and HBO took a chance at making a Mafia story during a time when the mafia were all getting sent down, the mafia film was dead and cliched, and they based on not the New York families but the bastard "6th family" New Jersey mob and called it The Sopranos and the main guy visits a shrink. That was taking a chance and doing a twist on the Mafia genre and it paid off. People laughed at that idea of making a show based on New Jersey mafia, I think what they tried to do was original in Mafia III. In the time of remakes, oversaturation of superhero films, Ubisoft games and EA, I welcomed this original idea. I respect the attempt at something new. 

 

I get it, you hated the game, so your frustrated and in your eyes it's not a true Mafia game to you own metrics of what a Mafia game is. I saw it as a progression. Didn't hit all the marks (just like Mafia II) but the originality of it made up for it. I would actually compare Mafia III closer to Sleeping Dogs. A game doing something a bit different, in a new setting for an open world. Not perfect but a new experience. 

 

Again, I prefer a Mafia II-style setting, or like you said a Las Vegas in the 70's/80s would be really nice. I wouldn't mind if they went like Rockstar did started taking huge inspiration from shows like Boardwalk Empire. 

 

Wasn't there a rumour that Mafia IV was supposed to be set in Vegas but got canned due to the backlash of III. 

My problem with Mafia 3 was the gameplay all you did was takeover districts that got repetitive very quickly instead of the traditional way of doing missions for people. Yes people complain about errand boy missions in GTA but it works better in a game based around the Mafia.

 

Very small minor thing I hated even though it was a period piece set in 1968 Lincoln had some sort of Radio/cellphone to communicate instead of using a payphone. The entire game he had an earpiece. Like if you're gonna set a game in the past go all the way. Don't bullsh*t and add modern stuff for convenience.

 

It also didn't help that Lincoln didn't feel like a mobster or a Mob boss at all like the game marketing did.  I remember seeing Mafia 3 posters saying build your empire. Why call it Mafia if you're not a mobster? Why market the game as letting you become a Mob boss but actually in the game you do all the work and your "lieutenants" were a joke too all they did was bitch and complain like spoiled children when they didn't get what they wanted. It felt more like they were Lincoln's bosses instead of the other way around. It was a great idea on paper to sit down with your lieutenants. I thought it'd be like the capo meetings in The Sopranos where they'd discuss their operation and stuff and talk about dealing with issues that are affecting the crew. The way they executed it was terrible.

 

Lincoln doesn't even seem interested in the empire stuff anyway and I think him ditching town was probably the canon ending.

 

I had no problem with Lincoln but I still feel that they should have made Lincoln an associate of the mob working under Vito kinda like what Niko was for the Pegorinos in IV. Vito would want control over New Bourdeaux and Marcano is in his way. He hears about what happened to Lincoln and gives him some work. Lincoln would still meet Burke and Cassandra along the way as well.

 

If not they should have gone with mutliple protagonists. I thought that was what they were going to do when character descriptions started leaking around 2014-15.

 

https://www.vg247.com/2014/03/12/mafia-3-rumoued-casting-call-implies-louisiana-setting-new-character-bios-listed/

 

My Version would have gone like this 

 

Lincoln, an Irish guy, and an Italian.

 

Lincoln and the Irish guy are hired guns who have done work together before they could have used Burke or Burke's son for the role it's a shame they killed off Burke's son very early. After getting betrayed by Marcano Vito hears about it and offers to help Lincoln. Vito would also have his own motivations for helping Lincoln like trying to make a move against Marcano for power and his displeasure for only getting the docks and for getting treated like the black sheep in Marcano's operation.

 

Working for Vito they are introduced to the other protagonist a young Italian hood who came with Vito from Empire Bay to New Bourdeux.

A bit early to tell, SysRequirementsLab should be updated when the requirements are available.

One of the first game I installed on my reinstalled PC was Mafia. Since I couldn't save my saves it is time to play it once again before they release the remake.

Seems like people got Mafia 2 Remaster early and imo there is really no difference from the OG version.

Textures, shadows and lighting. That's about it. Lighting is really dope though, because faces look a lot more alive than in the original, which matters. But compared to the Mafia 1 remake, it is a low effort.

What do you mean? Cliche in terms of characters and story? Well, if that's the case then yeah, maybe, but it was kind of the whole point, isn't it?

Probably. Don't get me wrong, I think the game is extremely charming even after all these years. But a part of that charm is probably due to such strong reliance on cliches and stereotypes that just work.

This all just has been expected, unfortunately.Hangar 13 made a wise move to show Mafia II first, just so you could remember how bad they in optimization. Well, hopes on good remake of first one kinda fading in me. It's still interesting, is Mafia III in this collection runs any better, or looks not like "PS3 garbage" on PS4.

The walkthrough on youtube has some crispy audio. Dude's stream is barely working too. The snow on his stream looks kinda bad and I can't really the graphical improvements. Looks like a dealbreaker so far.

I also don't get it. Didn't they say it was getting announced tomorrow? How are there people already playing it? Or are both remasters already available, but the remake still unreleased?

Apparently it was already out on Australian PS Store. This guy streaming made an AUS account and he's managed to buy and download it.

Version is 1.0, no day one patch has been installed yet. If there's a day one patch, that is.
