Mafia II is a venerated game with many attesting it being one of the greatest experiences that you could have outside of being in the actual mafia – uh, has no one heard of The Godfather? After last year’s leak of Mafia II: Definitive Edition, the game is finally available, and while it was an incredible game to re-experience in the glory that is HD, the problems that stem from a remaster, rather than a remake, left something to be desired.
The enhancements certainly make Mafia II: Definitive Edition a worthwhile revisit if you are a fan of the franchise, and it is also the way you should play it if you haven’t before. Mafia II: Definitive Edition makes a point to make the world feel more lived-in by adding in police that will chase you down if you commit a crime in their presence, such as speeding, or pulling a weapon out and gunning a civilian down in cold blood. Adding to this, is the fact that cars will take damage if you drive like a madman – so, all of us – and vehicles can even become incapacitated if you treat them like a motorised rubber, expecting them to bounce off of every surface.

Frame drops were a frequent problem I faced, especially during driving, and felt like the environment had to load again...
Loves games with deep character development and a rich storyline. Also, shooty-shooties. Loathes microtransactions. Likes to use sarcasm and metaphors.
