    I still haven't finished the game but, so far, it's proving to be a very good game. The graphics are very similar to GTA III. There's a lot of fun in this game! It's well worth the money folks! There ...

    Mafia for the PC is one of the most beautiful--and occasionally one of the most frustrating--gaming experiences on the PC. At any rate, Mafia is always guaranteed to produce a reaction in the gamer, ...

    Mafia is an awesome game in every respect. It is like a combination of Max Payne and Grand Theft Auto rolled into one. I haven't been this satisfied by any other game in years...and I've been playin...

    An atmospheric story driven masterpeice

    Rated on August 24, 2004 by Big-Dog

    Mafia is possibly the best story driven 3rd person shooter ever. If you think this is GTA in the 1930's - you're wrong. The world of Mafia is rich with atmosphere and emotion - each mission you're ...

    The storyline is the major point of the game.It feels like your playing a game and watching a classic film at the same time.This game doesnt focus completely on violence like GTA but it also have some...
